Arrowtown is a great wee place with an interesting history and there are so many great bike trails to chose from leaving from here. The advice about tracks we could ride (and Queenstown in general) was great and if we had time we would've considered doing a 3rd day. Take your togs and jump in one of the rivers or lakes to cool off before getting back on the bike. Great fun.

Thank Blair A

These guys are brilliant, really friendly and helpful, good selection of bikes from latest mountain bikes to relaxed cruisers, we opted for the latter which were fitted with panniers to drop your rucksack into, so much easy than riding with it on your back. Good selection of trails all starting from arrowtown, we went to the Queensland bungy bridge which was a lovely ride along the river, about 3 hours return at a relaxed pace. Good value for money and would thoroughly recommend for a nice way to spend the day.

Hi Jo and Graham, thank you so much for your review, makes our day! We love sending people out on our bikes and getting feed back about how much they have enjoyed the bikes and our service. We have just recently added a tandem bike to our fleet, which is hilarious to watch couples on. Trust the rest of your holiday is going well and you have enjoyed our lovely summer! Thanks again, Queenstown Bike Tours crew.

It was time to do an activity after all the eating and drinking ... How about bike riding?

My better half hired a bike for the whole day cycling to the Bungy bridge and back after helping me back on my bike ... and yours truly had a 4-hour (half day) rental which was enough to get my confidence back,. I had a great bike which was easy to handle with no distressful falls to talk about (thankfully!) There were enough of the track for beginners, and if it was a bit too hilly then off the bike I got to do a little bit of walking.

The bike riding experience was well worth it!

Thank you to QT staff for your encouragement!!!

Thank Luveely

We hired a couple of bikes from here in November. The bikes were new (Specialized) and easy to manage. We were given very useful advice about where to go in the amount of time we had - we cycled along the river to a winery. The path had recently been done up and was easy to cycle along; a little bit undulating with a couple of suspension bridges for added fun :) We could have organised to get a lift back from here, but decided we would manage the cycle back as well.
Overall a very enjoyable experience for a reasonable price.
