“Exceeded all our expectations by far”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

We used Adventure South's support crew facility to allow us to take part in the Tour of New Zealand. Without it, we simply couldn't have joined in. For two of us the prices made us wince but I have to say it was worth every single cent. Tim was a brilliant driver, tour guide, hotel and restaurant arranger, soigneur, picnic and snack provider, breakfast utensils provider, luggage mover, bike mechanic, photographer and great company. I tell everyone just how Adventure South made our trip so enjoyable and let us achieve our best without having to worry about anything. Our trip holds so many brilliant memories and that's partly due to Adventure South's professionalism. Happy to both recommend and to return. Thanks!

“Try it...you will not be disappointed.”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

I have hiked NZ for the past 3 years and was looking for something different.Yes it is true that the legs at the age of 60 years young where also looking for something different.Well this trip was just what i was looking forward.We had a mixture of very fit and not so fit people on our trip and the tour leader Tim managed the trip so well that over dinner we where all at one with each other and enjoying the experience.So relaxing and returning home that much fitter without the pain.I have just booked a similar trip for Vietnam in 2014 as it really is the best way to see the country side and meet the locals.Seeing things not seen out of a bus window.

“Otago Rail Trail - 9 April 2012”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Achievable ride on well maintained and appropriate bikes. Weather cool to marginal. Many side trips to Vulcan Hotel, Curling Centre, Raggedy Range and Taieri Gorge were all worthy compliments to the rail trail ride experience. The tour guides Stefan and Rossco were flexible and supportive.

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