Absolutely wicked views! Best I've ever seen personally. The staff / tour instructors are kind and explain things making it easy! Would recommend to anyone (get E-bikes if you doubt your fitness as the ride can be tiring), the bikes are nice and smooth, loved it.

You can do this ride both ways,I chose to cycle from Queenstown to Arrowtown. Good electric mountain bike, good instructions and good communication from Lisa, thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I left the bike in Arrowtown and they picked it up as my wife was also driving our car.
