Family fun

Hi We did this with two teenagers. We did the half day.’ It was so easy with pick up from town and drop off at bungy. Nice bike and lunch without the wines. Agreed would be great with stopping at every vineyard with friends but good for others to know this is very family friendly.

Great fun and easy service!

We had a great afternoon biking the wineries from the Kawarau bridge. Our driver was super friendly and made the whole process really easy, the ride itself is really cruising, almost all flat. It is hot in the summer so take sunscreen and plenty of water. We would have loved to do the full day, but didn't realise this was an option, so I would recommend that if you have the time :)

Thanks very much for the review Abbey, we are so glad you enjoyed your Half Day Wine tour with us. The Full Day wine tour does start at a different location, about 15km away from the first winery, as the wineries don't open until 12pm mostly. So if you're keen on a stunning 1.5-2hr ride from Arrowtown to the wineries then it is great alternative to the Half Day. Hopefully see you again soon for the Full Day Adventure! Cheers - Around The Basin Team.

A must do

Awesome day! Group of 22 of us and we had a blast. Bike tour were so good with pick up and drop off, super easy. The biking wasn’t hard but also wasn’t super easy. Scenery made it all worth it and I would recommend a E bike if you want to go fast. Vineyards were accommodating re such a big group of us. Had us on the lawn with picnic blankets, drinks and nibbles - super perfect. Such a cool avctivity for such a large group of people at once. Would do it over and over again.
