Our Personal Tour Guide
Feb. 2021
We booked a tour at the last minute and the company honoured our booking even though there was no one else on the tour. Our tour guide was thorough and told us in advance what to watch out for. He was very helpful and guided us through the gears of the bikes. He took photos of us at the best spots and generally made the trip so much fun.

Thanks so much for your patience with our daughter Arahia, really appreciated the care you demonstrated to her, we were also very impressed by your knowledge of local history, both European and Maori, and also of the geography and geology of the area, I personally appreciated your acknowledgement of the Maori world. Last but not least was the cycling, wow, great bikes, great views, exceptional personal and professional service you provided. "Ka mau te wehi" (Awesome)

Great way to see the views
Feb. 2020
No hassles experience. Arrived in beautiful Akaroa via cruise ship and was picked up via van and taken to the other side to pick up our ebikes and went for a great ride up into the hills. Took some amazing photos. Only disappointment was it started to rain abit as we got higher and then we lost the view but that can't be helped and didn't make the ride any less enjoyable. Thanks for a great experience.

Absolutely the best!!!
Dec. 2019
So much fun!! We are a family of four, and we did this electric bike tour as a cruise ship day excursion. Our cruise ship did not offer any excursions that looked remotely fun and adventurous for our two boys that are both in college, so I found this electric bike tour option on TripAdvisor. So glad I did!!! It was fantastic. This was our family’s favorite day excursion. I am not a cyclist, but I know how to ride a bike, and that’s all I needed. Our guide made me feel at ease the entire time. He let my husband and our boys ride out ahead when it was safe to do so, and he stayed back with me to go at my own pace. He took pictures for us and stopped numerous times so we could take in the incredible view. It’s a “tender” (tinder?) port. So I made the reservation for the early afternoon. That gave us time to get off the ship. We walked on the beautiful pedestrian walkway through the town and to our meeting location. The directions provided were perfect. (Getting from our ship to the pier was a 20 minute boat ride. I would allow yourself an hour to get from your ship to your meeting point. Although it’s only a ten to fifteen minute walk to the meeting point, getting off the ship and ferried across takes longer than you expect because of the lines. Important note: He had us back to the pier with plenty of time to spare, so don’t worry about missing the last ferry to your ship. They are very much aware of cruise ship time restrictions.) Once at the meeting place, we jumped in a van and had a short ride to our bike tour starting point. Make sure you wear closed toed shoes, no flip flops allowed. They provide you with a helmet, gloves, a visibility vest, and a backpack. Quick note about water: if you are on a cruise ship, you are not allowed to bring your own reusable water thermos off of the ship. New Zealand only permits cruise passengers to bring unopened store-bought plastic water bottles off. It’s an immediate $400 fine if they catch you smuggling previously opened water bottles or food off of the ship. So, make sure you purchase a “Water Package” from your cruise so that every day you are in port, you can take a water bottle with you. It’s not very echo friendly, and it costs extra, but on the flip side, maybe they’re protecting their environment from waterborne illnesses or parasites. Okay, back to the bikes...They teach you how to use the pedal assist and how to change the gears, and then you are off on an insanely fun adventure. It’s absolutely gorgeous and fun. With the electric pedal assist, you can go up a steep hill and still feel like you are peddling on a flat road. It’s brilliant. The only con was that my butt was super sore. The seats have padding, but since I’m not used to riding a bike, my butt hurt! I think that if I’d had taken a couple of Motrin prior to getting on the bike, I would have been better off. It’s not your muscles hurting the next day from a workout... I’m not talking about that...I’m talking about your bottom being sore after thirty minutes because it’s not used to a bicycle seat. Maybe a little preemptive Ibprofen would have helped. Regardless, I am still singing the praises of this tour and would recommend it to anyone who loves a bit of outdoor adventure. It was incredible and a highlight of our trip!!!

Thanks so much for the detailed review! We are so happy we could provide you with the highlight of your NZ trip! We love to show our visitors a good time and what better way to spend the day than sipping up an extinct volcano on the latest model Scott Ebikes! Shore excursions don't have to be just a boring bus ride, so thanks for making the effort to track us down! By the way we have added a fleet of soft gel seat covers to stop sore butts! So if you make it back again we have you covered :) Thanks again for the lovely review and hope you got home safely! Allie & Greville

Thanks so much to the team for looking after us, the electric bikes are amazing.We were a mixed ability group ranging from my wife who would never have agreed if I had told her what we were booked in for , to the rest of the group with a little more riding experience.We climbed some pretty steep terrain for some amazing views and a fun downhill.
Must do experience.

Perfect Ebike Adventure in Beautiful Akaroa
Oct. 2019
This a must do activity for all ages. We are a mature couple who haven't ridden a bike for years but we had no worries on these fabulous ebikes. The ease of riding the bikes was impressive, they were a dream to ride, especially uphill! So with a combination of stunning scenery, a really helpful, friendly guide and these amazing bikes, we had an unforgettable experience. Absolutely recommended to all!!
