AWESOME!!

Arrowtown is amazing and absolutely beautiful. The drivers were very informative, super helpful and super organised. The cycle track is amazing and easy. It is mostly downhill so it was nice. The scenery is amazing on the way to Gibbston Valley. The winerys were beautiful. My partner and I are more beer drinkers (especially on a hot day) so we went to the Gibbston Tavern, which we absolutely loved. Great amotpshere, beautiful outdoor area, lots of outdoor games to play. We definitely recommend this to anyone wine (or beer) enthusiasts who like to have a scenic view from Arrowtown to Gibbston Valley. Absolultely loved!!

Amazing service!

These guys are amazing! Lovely guides friendly and helpful, so much knowledge of the area. I was late due to Unforeseen circumstances and Lisa didn’t hesitate to put me in the next lot. Would highly recommend doing the bike the bridges tour! Such beautiful scenery - The winery was a beautiful relaxing end to the ride finished off with a cheese platter from the cheesery next door.
