Great quality service, very friendly and welcoming.
We were going to be late when returning the bike (closing time was 5PM) so we phoned in and asked them to wait for us a couple of minutes after closing time. They did and were very kind about it.

If you are looking for a way to explore Auckland but don't have a huge budget then this service is what you're looking for. It's so easy and stress-free. The bikes are clean and come equipped with a helmet and lock as well as coming in different sizes. We took a route that was recommended by one of the staff, it was a really nice bike ride as there was a cycle path. I'd recommend for all tourists who are looking for something different.

I LOVE this service. We are backpackers with limited supplies, and money, so a service like is awesome. We have rented bicycles from them that come equipped with helmets, and we opted to get lights as well, next time we'll get the baskets (handy when you're in Waiheke!). I have also rented a sleeping back from them as well, which totally did the trick for a camping trip. We are planning a longer trip and have our eye on renting the camping stove. The best part is everything is or seems brand new, and the prices cannot be beat. Trust me, I've checked around. Convenient location, and they are open holidays. I recommend them to all the travelers I meet.

When working business to business it always helps if the organisation you are dealing with respects your proffessional values and works in a professional and timely manner. We at Motorhomes, Caravans and Destinations magazine have been working closely with Adventure Capital for more than a year now and have always found their service to be of the highest standard. They are simply brilliant to deal with and provide a service second to none. Nothing is deemed a trouble. We hope they'll stay on board with us well into the forseeable future.

I rarely write reviews on my home town, but that's probably because I'm not very good at being a tourist in my home town.

When friends came to stay, decided to look for something that would help them see the city in a fun, active way.

Choose a self-guided bike tour with these guys, and it was amazing!

Absolutely fantastic way to get around - Auckland's waterfront is stunning and riding to The Domain/Museum was tons of fun...

A great day had by all...highly recommended.
