Brilliant day out!

This was a perfect day out in stunning scenery and with great wine and beer to top it off. Jay and his team are welcoming, flexible and communicated well throughout. We had particular needs re drop off pick up and they were very accommodating. The cost also represented fantastic value!! Finally a word about the bikes! We took the electric option and they were a revelation - so much so that we all want one now!!

Fantastic from start to finish - communication was excellent from before the event, right through to the end. Would definitely do this again another time - the staff and organisation were second to none. Really great trails and great to be able to go at own pace and the crew were great with flexible start and pickup locations and times. Would definitely recommend!

Absolutley brilliant

We have been coming to Queenstown for years, and seen people doing the biking tours, so decided to give it a go. Whilst doing the Go Blue Gibston Valley Bike Tour, we saw sights that we have never seen, meet people that we would never have meet, and found wine that we never have drunken before. This is now a must do every time we come back. Thanks so much Jay and Brad at Go Blue

The best bikes and the best service!

Jay was absolutely amazing from the get go, accomodating us and our timings to suit our trip. The bikes were top of the line and so easy to use. We got the e-bikes and the experience was so much more fun being able to boost around! We couldn’t recommend Jay and this experience any more!
