Highly highly recommend!

We would highly recommend this bike experience using an electric bike. The bike ride itself gave us a great opportunity to explore some amazing scenery that we wouldn't have experienced otherwise, and it was a lot of fun! Andy was very friendly, was highly knowledgeable of different trails to do, and had great recommendations of things to do and places to eat both in Queenstown and Arrowtown which was very useful. Thanks Going Blue, we will definitely be doing this bike ride again next time we visit Queenstown!

Great experience

Really fantastic experience. It's such a beautiful scenic ride, absolutely stunning and not too strenuous - the tracks are well maintained and wide enough to ride side by side without ever going on the roads So beautiful. All the mountains and rivers are absolute majestic and its so special riding through, you feel like you've been transported in time to a land before technology took over. The staff are great, really friendly and helpful and they do an awesome pickup service which really makes life so much easier. Would totally recommend!!
