What people are saying about Kawarau River

Ride to the vines was such a great experience. Ksena was really knowledgeable about the area we were cycling through, and the vineyards and wines. Mountain bikes were quality and made the trails such fun. And she was really patient and accomodating for all levels of riders Will definitely try out their ride to the skies offering when I'm back in queenstown.

Amazing views, waterfalls, alpacas and bunnies are just a few of the highlights of the tour -- and all this BEFORE the winery! The delicious food and wine by the fireplace at the end of the trip, was a treat! tourguides are super knowledgeable and accommodating. Would book again and recommend to all my friends and family. Many thanks

Excellent ride with a great guide, exploring new areas and with a welcome wine tasting and cheese board at the end. Would definitely recommend as an amazing way to see the scenery and have fun at the same time.

Lance provided us with a new approach to the age old problem… wine tasting and driving. We had a great day, went to places we didn’t know about, the best platter of food at Kinross and first class transport.

Andrew was amazing…made it feel highly personalized and very knowledgeable.
