Excellent tour to check out the sights of Wellington and what a beautiful city it is! We were blessed with a fantastic day (all sunshine and no wind!) and our tour guide (Jimmy) was excellent. The climb up the hill to Mt Victoria was well worth the effort and the electric bikes were fantastic. Thanks Jimmy for a great few hours whilst we visited Wellington on a cruise ship!

We lucked into a private bike tour when no other people signed up for it on this day. The electirc bikes made it easy to navigaate the hills of Wellinton. Our guide gave us multiple options for our routes and was very nice and knowlegable. This is the best way to quickly tour the city. We have biked cities all over the world, and this one was one of our favorites..

Sean and Jimmu were informative and fun guides. They took our group around the bays and out to a cafe for coffee and tea. The electric bikes were in excellent condition and a must in this windy city. We definitely recommend.

What a great tour! Best way to see a lot but not a too hurried pace. I was fortunate to be in Wellington on a gorgeous, not windy, sunny day plus it was just me on the tour! The guide, Jimmy, was very informative but not too much so I could also just enjoy the ride. The eBike made Wellington hills even the summit to Mount Victoria a breeze to manage. Highly recommend doing this if you only have a brief time in the city. Wellington is lovely, though, so try to spend more time here if you can.

We had a great time! I was concerned somewhat as I have a weak knee. Our guide. Silvie, suggested a different bike. It was more like a scooter. It was just perfect. The tour took us around the city and up and down hills and I had no problems at all. Silvie also gave a great commentary at each stop. She was quite knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.

This is a beautiful bike ride along the Wellington coast and up a hill to get beautiful views of the city and its bay. Sylvie did an excellent job of keeping up the pace and guiding us through. The electric bike experience makes it easy to bike up hills and ride against gusty winds. All in a lovely experience. Thank you Sylvie and Ryan!
