Everything for our 6 person party was so well organised. The accommodation at each stop was just the best. Thanks so much for your help in making this a great experience for us all!

We had our 5 bikes dropped off in Alexander at our hotel. Bikes we in great condition with everything we had requested and we found the seats very comfortable. We planned the trip ourselves and booked our own accommodation which was all great. The jet boat through the gorge was wonderful and so informative. A must do.

We loved the rail trail and we were so lucky with the weather. Very pretty with autumn colours and wonderful snow topped ranges. It felt very luxurious at Oturehua sitting in a spa after a day’s bike ride looking out at the Hawkeduns. The accommodation was perfect as was their organisation. It was all perfect.

Jo did all our arrangements and was friendly and professional. Even got a text during the first day to make sure everything was fine. Impressive organisation.
