We were picked up in downtown Wellington on time and had a very happy ride to the start of the track with all our questions answered and sights explained. We were given good explanations about the bikes and they were set up well for our use. The trail was magnificent, a big swing bridge and the last bit of narrow track was the hardest but if we could manage anyone could. The packed lunch and water was ample and all in all a great day. At the end we had a fast bike into Featherstone for a coffee which was a nice finish. After all this we were picked up and transported back to the hotel. I can’t recommend this enough as a day in the NZ bush and enjoying the history of the trains that opened up the Wairarapa in the early 19th century.

We have just ridden the rail trail in 3 days.. We can't speak highly enough of Wildfinder's involvement in makng this such a memorable sibling experience. There is a fabulous culture in this company as everyone we had contact with either in person or online were just amazing, so personable, engaging, informative, helpful and funny. Thank you Charlotte Dave, Peter, Tony and Matt and the others we didn't meet. Being given a tracking device too was an excellent safety feature. We highly recommend using Wildfinder to cycle The Remutaka Trail

We did the 3 day all inclusive Rimutaka Cycle Tour with Wildfinder. Everything was very organised and well run. They picked us up from the ferry in days bay and gave us all our maps of everything we needed for the trip. All the accommodation they booked for us was great and the food was good too. The team at Wildfinder kept in touch with us the whole time and were all really helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our 3 day cycle trip and would highly recommend Wildfinder! Thanks again for everything.

Four 65 plus couples were shuttled from Eastbourne too Wharekauhau with our E bikes, by an amazing young man called Tony. Thank you, you made 8 older people very happy! We had riden from Wharekauhau, which had taken us longer than we had thought, because the first 11km were mostly push a bike. We had a wonderful day, thank you again Tony!

Friends had organised for us and our bikes to be picked up and taken back to Petone once we completed the Remutaka Cycle Trail. We were picked up by Dave who welcomed us and set to loading our bikes insisting we just sit back and relax! Picking us up for the carpark rather than Featherston, as we had arranged, was no problem to Dave at all. Dave is very personable and we easily chatted all the way to Petone. One couple of our group could not join us for the full trip due to cracked ribs. Dave waived their fee, which was most appraciated.
