Very well organised and lots of fun. Dean, our guide, was great with local information and helping set up the bikes (the patisserie, Pembroke in Albert Town was great). The trail is long and unsealed almost all the way. There are sections no wider than 1m on the edge of and near the river bank. If you've never ridden a bike off road before or for only short distances, this may not be a good choice. However, if you do decide to take up the challenge, it is a fun and exhilarating experience that is well worth the money.
We did the Hawea-Wanaka bike tour. Dean picked us up on time and gave us clear directions on the route including a great recommendation for stopping at Pembroke Patisserie. A must do! The bikes were great although the route was more rough Terrain than we expected from the description. Requires a fair bit of legwork too if using non-eBikes

I did a tour around lake Dunstan with these guys. The tour included shuttle from Wanaka and back. There 2 options: a regular bike and an e-bike. I booked a regular one. Though it was quite difficult to pedal on the way up (I ended up pushing my bike many times) and some of the slopes were quite steep, I don't regret it. It was a nice and interesting adventure and quite a good fitness challenge. So if you are not sure about this, it's better to book the e-bike. The views were stunning and there is a cool winery almost at the end of the track, if you're riding from Clyde. I accidentally diverted from the track (silly me!) and ended up being half an hour late. But Jayden was nice and kind to wait for me =] Overall it was a great experience! If you're staying in Wanaka, this is a must do!
Had an awesome experience. The Lake Dunstan Cycle Trail is outstanding. Thanks for your help Stu
Excellent days ride from Lake Hawea , along Hawea River to Albert Town , then along Clutha River to where it joins Lake Wanaka. Then around the Lake edge back to Wanaka Town. It took us 4.5 hours , gentle terrain, tracks well maintained and stopping off a lot on the way to look at the variety of scenery . Ross , our pick up and drop off guy, was very informative about the route . I strongly recommend taking this experience .

we were from out of town and felt the driver took if for granted we knew the area. I would recommend giving a printed... map. One of the bikes didn't change gears properly and the battery went flat before the end. When we told him he didn't seem to be concerned.read more

Great family adventure!read more

I bring a crew of students over every year and riding with Dan and his crew is ALWAYS on our ‘to do’ list!!Nothing is... a problem, the bikes are first class, the guides have great knowledge of the gorgeous area, and they treat us like family !! YOU MUST COME TO WANAKA AND RIDE WITH WANAKA BIKE TOURS!!They even remember coffee!!read more
We had a great day! We booked the self-guided tour from Lake Hawea back to Wanaka. Dan picked us up on time, briefed... us on the order of the day and then drove us to Lake Hawea while pointing interesting stuff along the road. We got detailed info (pictures included) about our ride, tested the bikes and were on our way. The track from Hawea to Wanaka offers some stunning views, you will want to stop for photos or just to take it all in every 5 seconds. The trail is easy enough even for rookie mountain bikers like me, I had a lot of fun especially in the section along the Clutha river. The whole track is about 30km with plenty of opportunities to stop for a breather if needed. The bikes were in great condition and very reliable, really appreciated the gel seat covers and kick stands. Dan and his team just go the extra mile to give their clients an unforgettable experience.read more
Myself and 4 friends did the heli biking from Wanaka. It was the most extreme and beautiful few hours of riding I have... ever experienced. Dan was great in making all the arrangements, and Bob was an awesome guide. Considering the price of a scenic flight alone, this activity is great value. It’s something you can’t do in many places, so if you are into riding I would highly recommend it.read more
Dan led us on a great tour of Wanaka's finest trails. We were all at different skill levels but he found trails to... accommodate everyone. Bikes were great and we were able to extend our rental for an extra day.read more
Hey Dan - thx again for the awesome ride down from Mount Pisa this morning. 5/5 without a pause. Hey - the pictures you... took of our ride down are really good as well. You have a photographer's eye.read more

I booked a once in a lifetime trip, a twelve day South Island trip starting in Nelson and finishing in Queenstown, in... December, 2016. The whole trip was incredible, well organised, fantastic scenery, great accommodation and the trails were second to none. Dan, Dave and Kat looked after our party of 6, with great attention to detail, all through the trip. Dan had even organised local guides in some places, some of whom had built the trails we were riding, so knew them intimately. Every day the riding was a little different and each day you thought that the riding couldn't possibly get any better, but the next day it always did! Some highlights were 'the Old Ghost Road' (heli drop), Alexandra (which was very similar to some of the riding back home in Wales), Craigieburn, Dean's Bank (Wanaka) and of course the finale, Rude Rock (Queenstown). Our group gelled well and my riding improved through the holiday, just watching and learning from everyone's different styles. The trip wasn't cheap (for me) but was great value for money. It won't be the last time I visit New Zealand and will definitely be in touch with Dan when I return. Thanks to Dan and all the team, from a stoked Carl Davies.read more
Great company and super friendly/helpful staff. Tracks and guides to accommodate all abilities, thanks for a great day... Dan!read more

Thank you for a great trip, Dan! The views were incredible and the ride was a lot of fun, despite my big spill! 🙂
Loved the Lake McKay trip today Dan. Superb. Aiming to do it again soon.
This trip was by far the best thing I have done in a long time: it was amazing to see the world from a helicopter, to... be guided by an outstanding knowledgeable, passionate and patient guide, to be part of an awesome team which took extremely good care of me and to finally get to the point where I did not want to stop biking :)! I can highly recommend to book a trip with Dan, it's an experience of a lifetime you won't forget.All the best Dan, keep up your great work.read more

As Austrian I love the mountains and it is really hard to impress me, as I live in a place like Wanaka. But this was... definitely one of the best mountain experiences I have made in my life. Additionally this is not only for experienced downhillers but also for everybody who loves biking. So don't waste your time with skydives and bungeejumps - go helibiking and enjoy a whole day of adrenaline!Thanks so much Perynn for this awesome trip!read more
LOVED every mnute of our trip...Perryn was awesome and instantly made me feel at ease! The views all the way down were... AWESOME and never going to forget jumping into a chopper with bikes attached...bit surreal! Want to go again and again and again 🙂read more
