    If you haven't booked a port pick up and you're making your own way to the start point, you take the free port operated shuttle bus into the city and get off at either of the two stops- you can't walk from the port. From there we're about a 10-15min walk. Ask directions to Queens Wharf.

It was a really good tour, but could have been better. I was a bit disppointed that our ride took us onto main roads and residential areas, with little or no shoulder to ride on. Some large trucks and other vehicles came very close to us. I was surprised that our lead and

Response from Switched_On_Bikes, Owner at Wellington Electric Bike Tour
Responded 25 Apr 2020
Thanks for the review and feedback and sorry your experience wasn't 100% excellent. We would LOVE for the whole route to be away from roads, but we aren't there yet! Our City Council is currently building more paths along the route which should be complete at the end of 2020 / start of 2021- however this tour will still include some road riding. We do try to be as descriptive as possible about the route in the description of the tour on Trip Advisor and on our website by saying that the route includes bike paths, on-road cycle lanes and regular road riding. We also give a briefing prior to riding as a reminder that you'll be riding on roads. For riders who don't want to ride on the road, we have a tour option called 'Intro to Wellington' that is all on paths and doesn't go on any roads. The headset idea is good- I will look into it for post Covid tours. Thanks!

As our cruise ship arrived to Wellington, we got a message from the bike shop that the weather might cause them to cancel the tour. We did the tour anyway and it was great! Genevieve, our tour guide, was very informative and fun. As she stopped to tell us about Wellington & NZ

They weren't kidding when they said Wellington was one of the windiest cities in the world. It was chilly and rainy when we arrived at the port and got a call from jimmy who offered to cancel the tour and refund our money due to weather. We decided to risk it and still go. I'm
