Was a bit wary as my wife had never ridden a scooter before but she was given the chance to ride in the grounds before heading out. The roads close by have cycle lanes adjacent to the road so are pretty safe. John the owner gave us some great pointers for places to see and we had a super 4-5 hours travelling around the area. Glad we gave it a go.

Guys from BookaBike picked us up at our B&B, and bought us back at the end of the day. For us, it was the best way to explore the wineries around! We received a map with all the wineries, and some personal recommendations. You'll see the exact same places as the organised tours offer, but on your own pace and a lot cheaper!

We were picked up and taken to the bike pick up location. We were given a map and good, friendly recommendations on where to go. The bikes were comfortable (unlike others we had in different cities on this trip). The starting location is much closer to wineries than other bike tours we looked at, which is why we selected this one to begin with. Looking back, I think it was a good choice and we were very happy with the service. Thanks!

Great service - John picked us up in town and brought us out to their house where we picked up the bikes, and dropped us home after. Good bikes and a great way to explore the wine region! Nice location in the wine region with plenty of vineyards close by or some further for the avid cyclist!

We used book-a-bike to tour around Marlborough for a day in February. They were incredibly accommodating and picked us up and returned us to our hotel. Their location is perfect, the bikes in great shape, and they gave good recommendations on wineries to check out. We had a really fun day!
