Fit out and initial experience was good. The return experience will make sure we and friends don't return! Long wait to return then over the top Bad Attitude and non stop lecture. With so many great staff in Wanaka, this business has the worst staff...More

We rented bikes to ride from Wanaka to Lake Hawea and back. The bike rental was easy and painless and we thought the price was fair. The ride, on the other hand, while not technically difficult, wore us out!
