Such a cool thing to do. We hired E bikes at extra cost but worth it for us 50plus gals. Great driver and well prepared with info. Managed to get to 4 wineries including a gorgeous 3 course lunch at Gibbston Valley. Highly recommend even on a showery day.

We booked the full day "Bike the Wineries Tour" - self guided - and it was my husband and I and one of our daughters. It truly was the highlight of our trip to New Zealand and we felt young again riding alongside the beautiful scenery. The fellow who drove us and picked us up from Arrowtown (unfortunately can't remember his name) was so comical and chatty he had all of us on the bus laughing hysterically. We are Canadian and he had lots of funny things to say about us lol. Everything with our bike day was so organized, the bikes were great, wine was great and as promised they picked up any bottles of wine we purchased along the way. We felt truly alive by the end of our day and would fully recommend anyone considering booking with this company. Thanks and we hope to come again!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Bike the Wineries. Our day started with a walk through the quaint town of Arrowtown and then a fairly easy ride along a riverside path. The scenery was stunning as the river descended into a deep gorge and the waters turned a brilliant shade of turqoise blue. I chose to upgrade to an ebike and I'm glad I did because my husband who is a seasoned rider struggled with some of the hills while I breezed along. The wine and cheese tastings were fabulous and there was plenty of time to visit all of the establishments and have lunch besides. Our best day so far.

You are picked up from Queenstown and driven in a very nice bus to Arrowtown where you are given a briefing on riding through the Gibbston Valley.

It is well organised and the bikes and equipment are pretty good.

The cost is only your bike hire and transfer to and from Arrowtown - you get collected from a smallish pub in the Valley on the return run (or where ever else you might be).

The scenery is great and the ride is very enjoyable.

What was disappointing was the proprietors of the wineries ripping off the tourists. You sample very small quantities of wine at very high prices.

That kind of ruined it for me and made the day disappointing. Effectively you pay up to $30 for the equivalent of one small glass of wine (120mls). Cheese boards are extra (understandably) but I would not have done this tour if I knew how expensive the wine tasting was.

Could have been so much better.

Hello Simon - very pleased to hear that you were happy with all your service from our business. It is a shame you felt the wineries in Gibbston were ripping you off - you are the first I can personally recall in nearly 10 years of operation to give this feedback. Most NZ wineries charge for tastings and $10 to $15 for 5 - 8 substantial tastings is by NZ standards fairly good value. One of the wineries does offer free tastings and a number refund the cost of the tasting if you buy a bottle of wine. What the wineries charge is out of our control, and I have not heard of anyone paying $30 for a small glass of wine - it may have been a very premium vintage. We generally get great feedback from most of our customers about what a fantastic day they've had.

We were disappointed that the bus did not pick us up from our accommodation as advertised and as a result we missed the first part of the day.
They said they emailed but we did not receive and they did not attempt to call or message.
Customer service needs a lot of work!
The ride was beautiful and the wine was delish

Thanks for your review - it's a shame that you did not receive the email from us asking for you to walk to our shop in the morning, if someone has not checked in we do always try to call to see where guests are before leaving but unfortunately we could not get through to you on the number that was given with the booking. I'm glad that you did enjoy the ride and wineries after we took you out on the next shuttle.

We took this tour when recently in Queenstown. We enjoyed the day immensely and we would thoroughly recommend Around the Basin Bike Tours as they facilitated the day brilliantly.
The bikes were in really good condition, the directions were clear and the interaction with the crew who took us to the start and returned us home was terrific - highly professional but very engaging.

This was Tour #1 of three winery cycle tours we took during our two-month vacation in New Zealand. We loved it so much we decided to do it again when we were in Blenheim and Napier. We booked this tour through Around the Basin Bike Tours, who provided bikes, helmets, maps, and shuttle service at the beginning and end of the ride. We cycled from Arrowtown to Gibbston Valley on the Arrow River Bridge Trail and the Queenstown Trail, crossing suspension bridges and riding through farmland with spectacular mountain views and along deep gorges with turquoise water. In Gibbston Valley, the heart of the wine-making country, we visited numerous winery cellar doors and a fantastic craft brewery with wood fired pizza! The trail was easy and the beverages were outstanding. We will definitely do it again.

Was a gorgeous ride and bought some great wine. Only problem was the standard bike seats were quite uncomfortable after 8 hrs of biking. Suggest requesting a wider more padded seat if available. Otherwise no complaints!

Thought we’d signed up for one thing, got another! Due to a wee mix up we ended up doing the whole cycle tour from Arrowtown. Been a long time since either of us has been on a bike, but we gave it a good shot. If we’d known just how far we were going to be going, we would’ve opted for e-bikes, but were pretty chuffed with ourselves to manage the day on the old plodders. Had a fantastic day out, great weather luckily, went to some lovely vineyards and had fun at the Gibbston Tavern for the afternoon whilst waiting for our ride back. Highly recommend this way to travel the vineyards and see the back country with some fun.

Nice work on making the best of your day, even when you booked to ride a bit further than you expected. Luckily the trail is all pretty easy riding. E- bikes sure are a good option too! Next time :)

Had a great experience. We did have a bit of a problem , because the track was a bit of challenging for my 80 year old wife who hadn’t cycled for a long time and never ridden an ebike before. Long story short, she didn’t gloveless friendly o far and had to go back this split our group up, . But the wonderful staff sorted this out for us and picked her up and took her to Gibbston, where we all met up again. We were all able to enjoy the wine and food and then they came and picked us up and returned us to Queenstown. So after a shaky start we enjoyed the trip and can’ say enough about how wonderful and friendly the staff were in ensuring we had a good time. Thank you so much.
