Highly highly recommend!

We would highly recommend this bike experience using an electric bike. The bike ride itself gave us a great opportunity to explore some amazing scenery that we wouldn't have experienced otherwise, and it was a lot of fun! Andy was very friendly, was highly knowledgeable of different trails to do, and had great recommendations of things to do and places to eat both in Queenstown and Arrowtown which was very useful. Thanks Going Blue, we will definitely be doing this bike ride again next time we visit Queenstown!

great company

Great communication, great service and a great deal. Picked up at my hotel at 9:45 as agreed, taken to Arrowtown and given my bike, helmet, contact details in case of trouble and a map. I must admit that I did not pay as much attention to the map as I probably should have and so I got a bit off track several times. Some of the problems were due to construction at Millbrook...Fortunately some bikers got me back on track. Made it back to Qtown in about 2 hr. Was a really good ride and a great end to my little 4-day vacation in the south. Highly recommend this group.

Hey Susan, 2 hours is an impressive riding time back to QTN. Yes the road works in Queenstown have become a bit infamous at the moment but as always we are here to help and with just one phone call we can make sure you're on the right path. Hopefully the road workers put out better diversion signs or finish the job quickly.

Thank you Amy for the review. Which bit did you get lost - Lake Hayes or Frankton? We are always only a phone call away but the best thing to do is share your location on Whatsapp with us and we can quickly tell you if you are on the right path. Cheers
