This was my first cycle tour, It was a great 5 days and can't wait to do another one. Adventure South were so professional everything was taken care of. I was traveling on my own but well looked after. i would advise other single females to take this ride on. I thought the ride was going to be down hill... More

We have just completed the Alps to Ocean tour with Adventure south and their guide Rosco.We were new to cycling and we found the tour flexible and well suited to our needs and abilities. The accommodation,meals and the side trips were excellent. We will be cycling again.

Otago Rail trail cycling tour --- amazing. Every part exceeded expectation. I'm relatively fit but not much cycling experience per say, and the pace was perfect as I could push myself if I wanted or pedal lazily for a bit and take in the absolutely stunning scenery around me. The tour was organized but not contrived in a predictable, amusement... More

From Chris. My travel agent for hikes in Adelaide, South Australia (Monica at Peregrine) picked Adventure South's Best of the Southern Alps walking/bus tour to finish in Queenstown and be on the spot for the start of the Milford Track walk (with another company). Two weeks and two consecutive hikes (tramps) makes the trip from Aus worthwhile. I knew nothing... More

We used Adventure South's support crew facility to allow us to take part in the Tour of New Zealand. Without it, we simply couldn't have joined in. For two of us the prices made us wince but I have to say it was worth every single cent. Tim was a brilliant driver, tour guide, hotel and restaurant arranger, soigneur, picnic... More

Achievable ride on well maintained and appropriate bikes. Weather cool to marginal. Many side trips to Vulcan Hotel, Curling Centre, Raggedy Range and Taieri Gorge were all worthy compliments to the rail trail ride experience. The tour guides Stefan and Rossco were flexible and supportive.
