“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Very pleasant trip. Hassle free with easy pick-up and drop-off by Steve, who also sorted us out with comfortable bikes and map showing different vineyards including one we specifically wanted to visit. As stated on other reviews staff at the cellar doors were great, very friendly and helpful, we also stopped for a lunch-time platter. The weather became a little drizzly but didn't spoil the day.Would definitely recommend Wine Tours by Bike, just enjoy a relaxing ride at your own pace.

“Great way to see the Vineyards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Our host Steve was fantastic. We got picked up from our hotel and dropped back at the end of the day. He put together a map of where to go in the time we had. You can go at your own pace and the bikes are great. The service at the cellar doors were great. A must do is the platters at Gieson which was recommended to us by Steve. Highly recommend.

“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.
