Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an amazing day, this company have thought of everything. The staff are incredible. Very good at looking after customers and our bikes. They have great knowledge of the trail. It’s a company run by bike riders for bike riders. The trail itself is amazing and perfect for all abilities.

Our first father and son mountain bike adventure and we chose well. It was demanding, exhilarating, historical, and at times picturesque with glimpses of amazing vistas and swing bridges alike. Camp Epic is a great camp setup, we loved our glamping experience and the super comfy beds. It was good having the opportunity to prepare our own meal without having to carry the food in on our backs, alongside other guests and new found friends. The spirit of the adventure is set by the Epic family team who could not do enough to make our trip enjoyable. Great to experience a stunning part of Aotearoa New Zealand - a must do.

This was our third time at Camp Epic and our experience, lead by Paul and his amazing team, was again authentic and well run.

Great pick up and drop off service, helpful and knowledgeable staff. The camp is well apointed, the tents were very comfortable, and warm considering how cold it was outside.

Great family adventure for a significant birthday. Shuttle service was well organised with our bikes securely transported. Glamping site was clean and family tent was spacious and in a peaceful spot. Kitchen and bathrooms were well maintained and pantry extras were really appreciated. Thanks Paul, Jesse and Epic team.

Paul and the team gave us superb service, making it easy to change our booking date due to cyclone Gabrielle and providing a free cycle when our own bike had an electrical fault. The camp at the end of day one of the Timber Trail was fantastically well equipped. Pureora forest is a must see.

A beautiful, fun ride through varying landscapes.
Camp Epic is very comfortable and has excellent facilities.
The camp manager, Jesse, was very helpful and interesting.
We toasted the supplied marshmellows over a camp fire, the shower was partially open air with views of the bush, the tents were great, comfy beds, screened from insects, mosquito coils provided and excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities.

Paul transported us to the start of the cycle and met us at the end. He told us about the ride and the history of the area, as well as interesting characters in the area.
We felt very safe as if anything had gone wrong on our ride, Paul was only a phone call away and there is a road into most of the trail.
Definitely recommend Epic Cycle Adventures!!!
