We booked the Otago Rail Trail for 4 nights and 5 days and had a pretty great experience. The group only totaled 4, so we probably got extra attention. Before hitting the Rail Trail, we took a short ride near Lake Tekapo along the canal, which, given the great scenery, was an extra treat. The three days on the actual... More

For instance when i had a question about the spd pedals they used, because the can vary, i got a detailed response,... More

We booked this tour through Zealandier Tours. Our guide collected us from the pier at Akaroa (tender from cruise ship) and drove us to Christchurch. As he was a local we were able to get a first hand account of the earthquake and rebuilding of the city. Although we had of course seen news footage etc, to see Christchurch itself... More

From start to finish our group of 12 had the most fantastic time. We were fortunate enough to have 5 days of clear blue skies and temperature in the mid-high 20's. Sublime riding. Great bikes provided, everyone was fitted and kitted before we departed Christchurch. We had walkers (due to recent illness), we had a E-biker and a eclectic mix... More

Just completed the Otago Rail Trail with Adventure South. Evrything was great. The guide (Tim) proved to be very thoughtful with us and quite acquainted with the history of New Zealand. The food we ate in the small cities countryside New Zealand are just delicious.

We have just completed the 5-day Otago Rail Trail tour in a family group off 14: Two grandparents in 70s, 6 adults in 40s, and 6 grandchildren aged 6-12. It was the perfect holiday as there was cycling every day, and those who only wished to cycle some of the legs could go in the van. The extra activities were... More

This was our first bike trip so my husband and I went in not knowing quite what to expect. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. We had a small group (6 altogether) and we all got along well right from the start, which certainly helped. But much of the credit for a great trip went to our wonderful guide, Bas,... More

My husband I did the Milford Sound Cycle Tour with Rossco and Bas as our tour guides, who were absolutely wonderful. They were cool, fun, knowledgeable and very professional and good at what they did. We also had a great group of people on our tour who bonded well, which made for a super fun time. The South Island was... More
