Best day trip in Queenstown
We have lived in Queenstown for 4 years, and today was the first time we biked the wineries in the Gibbston Valley, and we can't believe we have waited so long to do this! This is truly one of the best day trips to do while visiting Queenstown. Our driver, Hywel was lovely and made it super easy. We took his advice and made our first stop at Gibbston Valley for lunch, we then biked to Periguine for a tasting, followed by another tasting at Kinross. We didn't feel rushed at all and an extra bonus was that any wine we purchased was left at the winery for Hywel to pick up for us so we didn't have to carry it. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

E bike tour of Gibbston valley
Dec. 2020 • Friends
Fantastic activity for all ages and fitness levels. We hired e bikes which were very easy to use and gave us the freedom to explore the wineries in the Gibbston valley without too much effort. We were able to fast at three wineries and enjoy lunch at one, next time we would probably do the 3/4 day trip so we could spend more time at each one.
Thoroughly recommend doing this !

One of the best days ever
Called up and the lady was so lovely on the phone and we got in last minute. We got picked up in town which was amazing. Hamish was a great, safe, and informative driver. He helped us sort out our bikes and gave us tips on how to have the best day exploring the wineries. Such kind people and the most fun day! Thank you guys for being a great company that allows us to have such a great unique experience in the Gibbston Valley! 400 stars!

Fantastic day of cycling and wine tasting
May 2020 • Couples
We had a fantastic half day cycling tour. Our tour guide was fantastic, friendly and very helpful with recommendations of wineries to visit. Although not all wineries were open due to the effects of covid there were so many in the region we still had plenty of options. The bikes were in excellent condition and we loved the service of being picked up and our tour guide was nice enough to drop us at the gondola after our day, he definitely went above and beyond with customer service! Would definitely recommend and we will be back again!

Outstanding fun afternoon
Mar. 2019 • Friends
Very friendly and professional. Pickup right on time, driver Steve was so informative and funny. Bikes fitted and off we went. We had the e bike so we could get to all the wineries. Loved them. still have to pedal and get the exercise but can look around and enjoy beautiful scenery. Everyone we interacted with was accommodating and readily shares stories. Great day. Highly recommend.

FunDay out E Biking the Wineries
Feb. 2019 • Family
A Must Do In Queenstown Grab the E- Bikes as you get to visit a lot more of the wineries and extra time to enjoy them. This self guided tour is so much fun really enjoyed the scenery and wine tastings. You can purchase any wines along the way and the bus grabs them for you so you don't have to carry them on your bikes . You lose 1/2 hour getting to the beginning of the tour it would be better if the tour was an hour longer as I think the full day package would be too long .

Hi Sue Fantastic you had a fun day out on our half day Bike The Wineries. We do encourage people onto our full day option but often people busy schedules in Queenstown don't allow them the luxury. The full day starts in Arrowtown so never too long as you do get to enjoy more scenic riding before you get to the wine region. Cheers Around The Basin.
