Revolution Tours - Pedal to Paradise
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Traverse the western shores of Lake Wakatipu and into Mt Aspiring National Park . Let Revolution Tours take you on Queenstowns original fully guided and supported luxury biking and walking tour. After a day of riding in spectacular surroundings you will enjoy a hearty gourmet dinner and perhaps a good wine (or two!). Following that you may choose to rest your weary limbs in front of the fire or soak in the hot tub. Then happily drift off to sleep in one of the quality historic lodges along the trail and wake refreshed for another day of adventure. Because you deserve it. All luggage is transported by our support vehicle to the following nights destination. This leaves you free to enjoy your ride and walk without the extra weight of all your personal belongings. When riding you can cycle at your own pace along mainly flat and rolling farm and back country roads knowing that all your luggage is taken care of. Your experienced guides are there riding with you, on hand to share local knowledge, take spectacular photos and to fix those unfortunate flat tyres! We take the hassle out of your tour planning by taking care of all aspects of your tour. Everything is included in the price of our tours except 'over the bar' drinks. You just decide you want to come along and we take care of the rest. We love this part of New Zealand and can't wait to share this secret paradise with you.

“4 wonderful days in Paradise - on the Paradise Trail”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

The Paradise Trail is a must-do in a very beautiful and remote part of the world and we will be reliving the wonderful memories forever! Kate and Matt are the best guides and organisers anyone could wish for and we have no hesitation in saying our party (of 12, aged between 60-67 years) was totally spoilt by them over the four days 7 - 10 March 2013. They absolutely blew us away with the high standard of accommodation in the two historic luxury lodges along the route, the stunning food, and their friendliness! In regards to the level of cycling experience required; some in our party had limited experience, including me, and accomplished. If, for any reason, anyone wanted a break from cycling there was always the following support vehicle to get into - as Kate and Matt would remind us "you are on holiday". Thanks Kate and Matt for a very special experience. Shirley and Bob.

“Wow 4 Fab Days. Paradise Trail.”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

A wonderful trip which far exceeded our expectations. We were very well looked after by Kate & Matt. Food & accomodation was great. Where else could you wake up in the morning (at Paradise Homestead)& see two Deer grazing in the garden outside your bedroom window- such a beautiful old Homestead. I hadn't ridden a bike for nearly 50years & managed although some of the hills were a challenge. Kate & Matt worked so hard to make our trip a
memorable one & they deserve to do well. Marilyn& Graeme

Hi Marilyn918, thanks for your great review of the Paradise Trail. Matt and I both aim to exceed expectations so it is wonderful to hear that we achieved that. We're also really pleased you came along on the tour even though you hadn't been on a bike for nearly 50 years. You put in a huge effort especially on the first day and you should be very proud of yourself. Your efforts were certainly noted by both Matt & myself. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday, Matt & Kate

“4 day Paradise Tour”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

One of the most awesome trips we have ever done and not just because of the amazing scenery. Matt & Kate were super organised, with nothing left to chance. Their choice of accomodation was great & meals were 5*. Their friendliness & helpfulness was great & even those of us who were less fit than maybe we should have been, were very well catered for, with rides in the support vehicle an option.
Keep up the great work, Kate & Matt (Flatt)

Well what more can I say that hasn't already been mentioned before in all the previous fantastic reviews.
Along with Andrea, Sue, Graham, Janice, Owen, Kitty, Mary, Ross, Charlie, Denise, Terry & Doreen we all had an amazing fun time, beautiful scenery and perfect weather.
Matt & Kate you took us on the most awesomeness!! of adventures, sometimes challenging, but highly enjoyable. I couldn't fault anything, it was truely wonderful.
The only sad part was when it finished and we had to say goodbye.
Thanks again.

“Fantastic day!”
Reviewed 4 March 2013 via mobile

Our pedal to paradise with Matt and Kate was truly one of the highlights of our New Zealand holiday. Matt picked us up at our hotel in Queenstown and drove us to get the bikes, helmets and safety vests. Kate provided a tasty and bountiful picnic lunch. The bike path was both safe and stunningly beautiful and Matt pointed out The Lord of the Rings sites along the way. We even learned to ford a number of streams. What a day!
