The tour is for small groups and suitable for any level of rider. Sean will follow in a bus and pick up anyone who has had enough cycling. Scenery is magnificent. Bikes, packed lunch... More

Chris of around the mountains did the cycle tour for us. Very knowledgeable. Managed to squeeze as much cycling as possible. Plenty of information , scenery and cycling. A good day out. Probably would have been better to have the afternoon tea on the way back on the boat. Could have spent more time at the Colonels Homestead and cycling.... More

This was a really good day out. There was a chance for a reasonable amount of cycling with the benefit that we enjoyed three areas of scenery because we were picked up after an hour or two and transported to a new track., In summary good bikes, reasonable food, great scenery, good companionship. Thanks for a memorable day

We did a fly back from Milford Sound two days ago, over the glacier fields to Queenstown and I thought nothing was going to top this until our experience yesterday. Absolutely the best excursion ever and Chris was the best!! Book this as soon as you know your dates because this outing will not disappoint. Pssst....don't tell anyone or you... More

We took this tour with two kids 10 and 12 years. It was positively fabulous! The TSS Earnslaw drops you off in a remote farm area, and you get your bikes. Our guide (Chris) rides with you but also pilots a larger bus, that after an hour or so, will take everyone up the gentle hills to the lake area.... More

Went cycling with Chris and it was awesome! Starting from the moment we met, thru the ride on the cool old coal steamer we had a blast. Awesome lunch provided, and as much or as little biking as you want! My favorite was the big hill! Cheers chris for the great day out, highly recommended!

This was one of the highlights of our holiday in New Zealand. It starts so well with the trip on the steamer to Walter Peak and then gets better. Not everyone in our party was an expert cyclist but that didn’t matter as they were able to get back into the vehicle at any time. The journey up onto the... More
