“Great cycling with interesting side trips”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

You get to know about & visit places you wouldn't go yourself. The guides are very flexible to accommodate various group members.

“Amazing groups of people, lovely guides and a super friendly company!”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

I have been on several trips with Adventure South now and can't wait to get on the next one. Over the past few years they have shown me the beauty of the Southern Alps on foot, the stunning ruggedness of the West Coast and the undiscovered Molesworth by bike, the diversity of their amazing country by one of their multi-activity tours and let's not forget the bike trip everybody can and must do: The Otago Rail Trail. All of the guides are amazing; they're friendly, go out of their way for you, tell you all you need to know and can make the most tasty picnic lunches! The office staff is always there if you have any questions and are superquick to reply. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a great active New Zealand holiday!

“A healthy and friendly way to travel”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

Adventure South Travel is professional in every aspect. The pre-holiday support was spot on and the quality of the guides are the as good as any we have had on many similar holidays. The guides had good knowledge of the places visited, accommodated everyone's needs with the diversity of ages. We are 60+ and are planning more holidays with Adventure South because of the quality service they provide.

“Spectacular scenery while cycling through areas unaccessible by auto.”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

Our guide, Steve, was most pleasant, knowledgeable, fit, and unparalleled in providing the best he could for all of us. The only criticism would be the extra curricular activities, such as a game of pool at a pub, the ice rink curling, etc. could be more up-to-date on actual time frames and costs so one could assess our personal preferences with these options. As to curling, a skilled sport, perhaps more structure to learn and practice would be a suggestion instead of attempting to play competitively with unskilled teams -- it only leads to frustration amongst those who know the game and those with virtually no concept of what was taught during the introduction lesson and video.
