My 11 year old and I hired bikes and did an independent ride from Arrowtown to Gibbston Winery. It's a fabulous easy ride with gorgeous scenery and lots of bridges and tunnels to keep you interested along the way. And finishing up with a wine and lunch at the winery was perfect.
Queenstown Bikes made sure we had the right bikes before we set off and when we'd had enough we were able to phone for a pick up to return us and the bikes to Arrowtown. They made it all so easy.

Thank stpe

My husband saw the good reviews in Trip Advisor, and we were convinced it would be a great experience. We were right! Dylan picked us up in Queenstown and showed us the highlights in Arrowtown. Well-equipped, and with a map in hands, we departed. All the way is well signalized and the views are stunning! I loved that there were no timetables, we could take as long as we needed to complete the route. Our destination was a vineyard, we did the wine tasting in Gibbston Valley winery. Dylan picked us up and drove us to Arrowtown, were we had a delicious platter in the Postmasters Restaurant. In the end of the day, Dylan took us back to Queenstown. We loved the pampering!

We hired bikes for a half day to browse the area at our own pace. We're given a map, helmet and very thorough instructions on how to get to our destination (a winery) and what to watch out for.

The bikes were of very high quality (much better than most of bike hire places) and very well maintained. We managed to return on our own but in case you get too tired (or drunk from tasting too much wine) they come out and pick you up (for a reasonable cost) so there are options available for all fitness levels.

On route from the Dudley Cottage in Arrowtown (where you start) to Gibbston Valley Winery, the scenery was amazing and so different from what you see from the car. You ride along the prestine blue river and cross bridges including two swing bridges and the bungy bridge. It felt like a great adventure and we (including my sister who isn't a great fan of cycling) all enjoyed our ride so much.

It is alsi a great way to burn off extra calories from the cheese and wine you get to indulge in the region.

Hi Jim, awesome! We love your review, you're so right about the scenery that can only been seen from these trails and how much fun and relaxed the day is. Hope to see you all again to give another part of the trail a go. Thanks, Queenstown bike tours crew.

I found QBT by Trip Advisor and there were many good reviews from people, so me and my friend decided to rent a bike for 1 day.

Dylan is friendly! He explained very detailed of our route, he also tried to make us fully prepared before our departure to Gibbston Winery as his suggestion :D and he made sure that we will travel savety to Gibbston. Then, we achieved succesfully and finally we bought chocolatte and cheese at there, thanks for your recommendation, the sceneries while we cycling was beautiful.

If you are not used to cycling and want to have fun cycling, Dylan will show you the route that will suits you, and it suited us very well.

QBT is highly recommend!
