We rented e-bikes from these guys. The service was very good and the bikes were in excellent condition.

My friends and I had two tours with outdoor Samoa, a mountain biking trip and a kayaking trip to see turtles, both of which were fantastic! One friend was unwell because of the hot weather and a prior operation but the team took great care of her. Lulu, Tua and Tino were wonderful and we had lunch with them under the fale at Outdoor Samoa after the biking trip, talking about culture and life in Samoa. Two of my friends are from Africa and they had their first kayaking experience with Outdoor Samoa! They were really afraid of the sea, but the Outdoor Samoa team were really encouraging and supportive, not to mention confidence-inspiring! It was an experience they will never forget, and we really appreciated the humour and patience of Perry and Tino! We highly recommend Outdoor Samoa to all travellers!

I did the 9 day tour of Savaii and it was the perfect way to be immersed in Samaon culture and see the countryside at a slow pace. The beaches were amazing and the riding was always scenic. Ross and Frances do a great job of making sure all the details are taken care of and the supported ride makes the whole vacation worry free.

We recently booked the Giant Clams Cycle and Snorkel trip with Outdoor Samoa and it was brilliant. Ross and the crew were friendly and extremely helpful in organising the trip with patience for our limited internet and mobile reception. They were patient and kind to my youngest son (who has mild autism) and helped him select a bicycle that would suit him. Despite only having booked a 'limited' support option for the ride, Tino was happy to give the youngest a lift when his legs ran out of oomph before we got to the hill. The ride itself had some of the best scenery on the island, and that is saying something. We were blessed with a sunny day and a gentle, mild breeze. The beach at Lefaga is an amazing, white sand and turquoise water 'no filter required' beauty. The clams are worth the cost- huge, fascinating creatures with shimmering, iridescent spots. Whilst the surrounding coral has suffered from bleaching and extreme weather events (like all coral reefs around the world) there is still plenty of good snorkelling to be done and seen. The major part of the ride is on the flat, with a steeper section just before Lefaga. Even as a regular rider and runner, I was grateful for the e-bike assistance up the hill: even if you are a committed triathlete, unless you are used to training in 30* heat with high humidity then just go with the e-bike: it turns a hard ride into a pleasant and slightly challenging one. The eastern side of the hill has a more rough road section, reminiscent of an easy MTB trail, so for less experienced or nervous riders, take it easy. Don't worry- all of this will be outlined in your briefing, along with where to buy ice-creams to break up the trip! I elected to ride back to the base, but the rest of the family (husband, 10 year old and 12 year old) took the van back with Tino. It was not a problem for me to do this, Tino was happy to oblige. Again, with the e-bike, this turned what might have been a challenge into an easy ride, with me beating the van back home by five minutes, even stopping to take many photos! They are not wrong when they say you may get a sore arm from waving "Hi" and "Bye" to the village kids! On my way back home, kids walking home from school also lined up to High Five me on my bike riding past. It Is also totally probable that you will have a sore face from smiling so much. I can honestly say this was one of the best day trips I have ever done, anywhere. It remains a highlight of our Samoa trip, which has turned out to be the best family trip ever. Cannot fault it. The ONLY slight hiccup was that an e-bike to suit my youngest couldn't be found- AND that is more to do with his ASD rather than the fault of Outdoor Samoa as child-sized e-bikes are very hard to come by. A few step-through but adult-sized bikes were available, but since my son was not familiar with the height this was a problem- for him, not the company, which made all efforts to accommodate him. For kids without sensory or balance issues, the e-bikes available may be completely suitable. In the end, with the wonderful support, it turned into a complete non-issue, with Tino taking my son in the van when he tired (he's not a very fit boy). Completely recommended. 6 out of 5 stars!

Two families - 4 adults a 4 year old and two almost 2 year olds - seems like a good plan to go on a cycle holiday in Samoa! It certainly is when organised and supported by Ross and Frances and the amazing team at Outdoor Samoa. We just finished an 11 day bike ride around Savaii, and can't really think of anyway that it could have been better as a fun family holiday. From the beautiful fales right on some of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever seen, the friendly hosts, interesting sights and sounds of Samoan village life, gorgeous scenery and the welcoming nature of all the locals, particularly towards the children, we all had a blast. The biking was fun, nicely spaced over the whole trip with no particularly onerous days and several rest/beach exploring days and the support van with Lau and Jesse as the super obliging drivers/tour guides was there to lug our gear, keep us hydrated, take us to all the best attractions, and give the kids a chance to take a wee break when they needed a snooze. We had more options than we needed for the kids on the bikes including bike seats, trailers and a tagalong, and they were always happy to swap this for that and take breaks with us whenever needed to keep everyone smiling. Particular highlights were the beaches at Manase (Tailua), Vaimoana, Falealupo and the best beach ever for families Satuiatua (go there, you'll see what we mean!), as well as several great snorkelling spots, many sea turtles and other cool marine life seen, the sea arch and blowholes, and just generally what a fun time all the kids had. Logistically everything was so well organised and made a trip to a very special but not highly touristed part of the world so easy for us. Was particularly impressed with Frances and Ross's patience with all our many questions when we first got in touch with them.
