Just come back from doing 4 1/2 of the 8 stage of the Alps to Ocean cycle trail. We choose "Not a Rail Trail" to help us on our journey and it was a great success for the 7 strong group. Vernon picked us up in Queenstown and was a pleasure to have along as our guide. He made the... More

This was one of the most amazing trips I have ever undertaken. When I went back to bike riding so that I could do the Otago Rail trail I never envisaged that it would lead me to the A2O - what a trip. I loved all six days of it with its huge variety of scenery, the most amazing dinners... More

Did this trip with some friends. Love it! Stunning view and fun boat ride over historic place.Easy ride with a little bit of up hill. Loved a lunch they proveided us too! I'd recommend to anybody looking for a combination of BIKE riding and JET BOAT! Also recommend to jump in to Lake after ride on hot day.

How to make one of my favouite parts of the world even more stunning? By cycling the Clutha Gold and Roxburgh Trail. The track is great, the scenery totally beautiful. Sara and Vernon are superbly organised and very knowledgeable about the area. They are kind and generous hosts, who made sure we had a great trip.

Did this as a group after spending two days doing the Clutha gold trail. The track was perfect. There were just enough switchbacks and downhill sections to keep you alert and interested. Sara and Vernon are outstanding with their support and are always ready to give you what you want before you could even mention it. The 45min jet boat... More

What a trip! I cycled the Gorge with Not a Rail Trail and was totally drawn in to the landscape and the experience. I really appreciated being so well taken care of and this allowed a sense of full immersion into a truly wonderful part of New Zealand. I won't forget the colour of the water and will definitely do... More

Outstanding! A group of us did both the Clutha Gold and Roxburgh Trail with Sara and Vernon in December 2013. The scenery is exceptional - dry, craggy Central Otago set off with the deep blue of the Clutha river. There is a jet boat ride through part of the gorge which is a great contrast to the dryness of the... More
