We found V8 Trike Tours just outside the cruise port dock in Tauranga. We asked after their services and chose a 3 hour tour. We were greeted with a friendly smile and our rider/driver started our journey. We took in views of the Tauranga town area itself with some knowledgeable insights from our driver. Then off to the outskirts and panoramic views across the water back towards our cruise ship.
New Zealand doesn’t require drivers or passengers in the trikes to wear helmets
, so it was a very different feeling to have the wind thru your hair. We followed curving country roads and up to a spectacular Lookout with 360 degree vistas of the surrounding areas.
We took in the majestic Mc Laren Falls and a Rider thru the gardens and parklands before a well earned coffee stop.
We returned via the breathtakingly beautiful New Zealand countryside, then a short cruise through town and back to the port area.
Tip for travel...put on plenty of sunscreen, you could try and wear a hat but I reckon that it won’t stay on too long...a bandanna may be a better option.
I can thoroughly recommend this tour company.
15/10 to V8 Trike Tours NZ.
It was an epic afternoon and will definitely do it again.

Hi Peter.. thanks for your lovely review and comments. The 3-hour tour is amazing and takes in the beautiful NZ countryside. Agree, sunscreen is a must so we have this available for our customers to use free of charge. Hopefully see you back here again sometime soon :)

Hi Kathryn/Nigel - just want to say a huge thanks to you guys and especially Dan for a great outing on the trike yesterday. At 88 years old theres not many invigorating activities we could've lined up for Mum on her birthday but this was just fantastic. She had a real thrill and thoroughly enjoyed our beachside tour at the Mount. Customer service, commentary and comfort were all top class. Smiles all round. Cheers!

Booked for a tour with Bernie with three friends as a post Christmas Treat - thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. As three of us were local we skipped the city tour and headed out on the Beach road to Papamoa and then up to Summer Hill for the most amazing views back towards the Mount and the beaches. Fabulous ride back culminating in riding back up Maunganui Road waving like celebs! Brilliant. Felt totally safe the whole time and very comfortable seats. Highly recommended

These guys are amazing, we organised a 65th birthday surprise, everything went perfectly and to plan. Picked up from home great tour around Tauranga and dropped off to the resturant. Nothing was an issue. We all loved the ride.
Highly recommend to everyone!!
