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.

We recently did the Great Victoria Rail Trail self guided cycle.
What a great trip it was. This cycle ride was perfect for us and would suit almost anyone. We are casual recreational cyclists with average fitness. We had one ordinary bike and one electric bike. That suited both of us.
All the accommodation options worked well and the transport of our luggage and back to our starting point worked faultlessly. We loved the Victorian High Country and this was the perfect way to get a taste if it. We would love to come again.
All the organisation and communication with Australian Cycle Tours was easy and they were very responsive.

This is fantastic to hear - this part of Victoria is an incredible place to explore and we can't think of a better way to do it than by bike! Our team loves hearing great feedback like this and we look forward to helping you plan your next cycle tour in Australia.

The Hunter Valley self guided tour is subpar,
most of the cycling route is not a dedicated cycling path.
The bikes are below average in quality for the price you pay.
There is very little added value in joining the self guided tour - probably save 50% of cost at least if you just book for yourself and do a google map plan...

We loved our trip down the Brisbane Valley rail trail. All the arrangements made by Australian Cycle Tours went smoothly - the accommodation was good, the pickup and transport to the start of the trail, luggage transport, bike hire and return all occurred without a hitch. A very enjoyable four days!

Great trip - the rail trail is a beautiful trail. The surrounding countryside is picturesque - it has beautiful rivers, hills in the distance, grazing animals, small country towns …. The trail itself was well maintained, even after lots of rain. Although the water flooded the trail still in 2 sections, it was easy to ride those sections on the highway ( not particularly busy and with a side track for bicycles).

The accommodation chosen by ACT was good - quaint country hotels, comfortable, with storage for bicycles ( except for Bonnie Doon Hotel). The people were very welcoming. Each town I stayed in was interesting to explore and there were some great food options, from pub grub to fine dining.

ACT were very responsive to any issues I raised, both prior to and during the trip. On ground partners ( managed transport of luggage each day, pick up on last day etc) were very efficient, friendly and helpful.

What a wonderful trip! It was our first cycling holiday and I was a little hesitant when booking it as I didn't know how difficult or easy the whole trip would be, especially when travelling in a group.

This trip was recently changed to use e-bikes, something else I hadn't tried before. They turned out to be a great option as each person can dial up the assistance to the level they feed comfortable with and nobody else has to know what that is. Alternatively, you can turn it off altogether for a bit of a workout. As a result, everyone enjoyed the trip and nobody was left worrying about falling behind or slowing the group down.

The bikes themselves were very well maintained and the local guides were excellent - very friendly and helpful. By travelling to different locations during the trip, we enjoyed a variety of experiences, more than we would have if we visited by ourselves.

Overall I would highly recommend this trip!

Our trip started well. Shawn met us as arranged, the accommodation at Prince of Wales, Gulgong was excellent. After day 4, when the support vehicle containing our luggage, got bogged, we continued with the bare essentials. Shawn did his best. The wet weather and flooding didn’t help. The app needs to be kept up to date - sending us to the wrong hotel in Dubbo! Pre trip information was confusing; Day 1? Stage 1?
Lunch at Mayfield, Coffee & Scones in Wongarbin, Blue Sky Cheese factory in Ballimore, excellent added stops.

My partner and I loved our trip.
We rented electric bikes. They were perfect. The owner of the bike hire company ( I think his name was Nigel ) and his staff ( James from memory) were both friendly and professional. I felt confident they would help if there were any bike problems.. but there were no problems.
Even riding in the rain was fun. ( light rain only as it turned out.)
The instructions on the app were very precise and reassuring and the accommodation was great.

It's always great that our guest had a fantastic time while cycling Australia. The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is a particularly beloved bike trip, and we're happy you were very satisfied. I'll pass on the kudos to Nigel & James. We look forward to organising your next holiday in Australia!

A wonderful 4 day self guided trip from Mansfield to Tallarook (including Alexandra) along the Great Victorian Rail Trail. Our first experience with e-bikes and it won't be our last. They were BRILLIANT and added a lot to the experience.
The orgnisation by Australian Cycle tours was faultless.
Great accommodation, excellent communication from Double Black Alpine shuttle who moved our bags daily and brought us back from Tallarook to our car in Mansfield at the end.
We highly recommend this company to anyone thinking of doing this trail.

My wife and I had an incredible trip from Mansfield to Tallarook (and back via Double Black Alpine shuttle), including being blessed with good weather for the four days we were on the trail. My wife's ebike was excellent (I used my own MTB) and the accommodation was superb. The shuttle service was excellent, and communication from Australian Cycle Tours, Double Black Alpine and accommodation providers was excellent -- before, during and after the trip. Very good itinerary, and highly recommended. You'll need to be fit enough to do the ride but I suspect you'll know your limits. Consider this company if you fancy once of their cycle routes.
