“Molesworth Heritage Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

For New Zealanders the opportunity to tread on this part of the High Country, which is so connected to the history of development of their nation, is quite rare. For those coming from other places, the beauty and variety to be experienced on the trip through gorgeous mountains, rivers and valleys must surely delight. In addition to the wonderful expanses of Molesworth and it's neighbouring stations, the inclusion in the four-day trip of a tour of the Awatere and Wairau Valleys, a visit to the Nelson Lakes and the hospitality of residents of those places was a nice contrast. Accommodation and catering were of a good standard and our guide, Trevor, demonstrated the highest standards of his profession. Molesworth Tours do a very good job. Molesworth Station is a national Treasure.

“Molesworth Cycle Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

An outstanding tour. Enabled us to see the Molesworth and enjoy it, with as much or as little cycling as wished. Accommodation was first class, including the shearing shed experience and the real high country dinner. Home cooking was a food feature, from morning and afternoon teas, to the lunches and dinners. A really first class NZ experience.

“Fantastic trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

This was one of the best 5 day cycle trips we've done. Great to have a "local" to give you all the inside information :-) !! We're taking the family to do it again with us.

“5 day Molesworth cycle tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

A wonderful way to explore and experience NZ High country farming /living at its best.!
I highly recommend the trip if you are into fun, a bit of exercise, good food, fantastic and knowledgable guides ( van driver plus cycle guide), excellent accommodation ....and of course the spectacular breath taking scenery, like no where else in NZ!

The mountain bikes that the company provided were new, but albeit very basic.Certainly could have been more up market; gears and brakes left a bit to be desired.

Otherwise , an experience not to be missed!
