“Great way to spend the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Marlborough's vineyards by bike. Steve and Jo made it all very simple: pick-up and drop-off at our accommodation, a helpful map with a route marked on to take us where we wanted to go, and very comfy bikes. The staff at all the cellar doors were super helpful and friendly (even as it was getting close to closing time!) and we varied our afternoon with a lunch stop in the sunshine as well. A perfect day!

“Wine and Wind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My partner and I really loved cycling round the vineyards. It was a beautiful sunny day, just a little bit too windy, but we soldiered on anyway. The service at cellar doors was fantastic and we soon were laughing about cycling into a head wind. My bike tumbled over in the stands and was a tad wounded. Steve came to the rescue with a brand new bike for me and even changed the seat to my comfortable one. He even took our purchased bottles of wine which let us buy more of the fantastic Marlborough wines. Pick up and drop off service to the motel was great - hassle free. Highly recommended way to see, taste and experience the Marlborough wine region.

“Best way to see the vineyards!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We had a fantastic day cycling round the vineyards and tasting great wine, made great partly because of the good weather but mostly because of Jo's lovely warm and friendly service, and the knowledgeable cellar door attendants.
We changed pickup time at the last minute, and Jo was more than willing to accommodate this, she fitted the bikes personally to us by swapping seats around (very comfortable seats), gave us a detailed map, and good information on which cellar doors might to our liking.
We bought lots of wine, and made full use of our bike bottle carriers!
We would recommend Wine Tours By Bike to anyone wanting to see the vineyards at their own pace, all round excellence.

“Girls Bike Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had a great time on the tour, picked our own wineries, had an excellent lunch and all the people at the wineries were very helpful and friendly. Steve and Jo provided an excellent service and we was great to meet his family (animals) at the end of the day. Prompt pick and and drop off service. Highly recommended

“Winelover's heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I wanted to show two friends from UK around the Marlborough vines and this was the perfect way to do so. Steve and Jo were really helpful and friendly - we were picked up from our motel and taken to their great bikes. Everything had been thought of right down to the panniers made for wine bottles which we made full use of. We had a great day and it was all down to Jo and Steve making it about what we were wanting out of our day. Fabulous fun and thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a great day out
