Wonderful ride
Dec 2020 • Friends
Roge is a fantastic tour guide of Rotorua: we had an amazing morning discovering all the city treasures including hidden thermal spots and fantastic views.
He is super knowledgeable, explaining all the geothermal activities as well as New Zealand culture history and stories.
Riding by bike was super fun and we could chat along while riding.
We strongly recommend this adventure for all Rotorua new and old visitors.
Angela from Italy.

A must to do for tourists and also locals
Dec 2020 • Friends
I have been living in Rotorua for almost 3 years and I can honestly say that this tour is a MUST TO DO for everyone who is interested on knowing more about the city, the country and the whole New Zealand history. I can say that after it I felt more "local". Roger is such a cool and fun guide who has a lot of knowledge to share as he has born and raised in Rotorua, besides stopping at all the key points he brought some pictures and a bunch of others tools to explain every cool detail, making this tour epic. The other important thing to raise is the passion he has on doing the tour what makes even more especial.
I was invited to do the tour with a friend and I must confess that wasn't super thrilled about it at the beginning because I ride my bike almost every day in Rotorua, but now I so happy I did it, I loved, was a great and fun lecture, really was! Thank you Roger, keep riding and teaching.  :)

I got a great experience with the tour. Get more information about Rotorua and New Zealand. Roge is really enthusiastic about his hometown and all the lakes. A must-have tour at Rotorua.

Perfect tour for kiwi's who need a stay-cation!

We had such a fabulous day!

Cycling was a perfect way to cover ground and explore probably the most unique place I've ever visited.

The pace was perfect and Roge's knowledge of local history and geology were super impressive. It was so interesting to hear about Rotorua from a local perspective, and Roge's love for this town is totally infectious - we will be back!

All the fun you can have on a bike
Jul 2020
Probably the most enthusiastic guide on a bike tour ever - animating from hello! We had so much fun exploring Rotorua in this convenient way. No physical effort at all! Those bikes are well maintained and run as smoothly as you can expect. Learned heaps that day and truly identified with this unique site. Thank you Roge for showing us this place you love so much - we'll be back for a coffee next time.

Unique and just fantastic
Our family of four with 14 & 12 year old kids had the most amazing time with Roge. He is an absolute professional with utter passion for his hometown. Throw in some genuine interest in geology and science, and that makes his tours unique, fun, and a cut above the rest!! Our kids were sceptical of a three hour bike tour but loved every minute and raved about it afterwards. He is hugely conscious of guest safety so we felt safe throughout. So happy to support a small local business too. Thanks Roge and hope to see you again sometime!!

We had a fantastic tour - very informative and lots of fun. Loved Roger's enthusiasm for the area. It was awesome to learn about the town I grew up in (yet never paid much attention to when younger). Highly recommend as an activity to visitors or locals to Rotorua.

Wonderful experience and one of the highlights of our trip to Rotorua. Despite the rain, it was a really pleasant cycle around the flat streets of Rotorua. Such a great way to take in the sites while lwarning about the geology and the hiatory of the area. Roger was a fantastic host who kept adults and children alike entertained.
