We have just completed a three day cycle tour with Takaro Trails. We cycled 130kms through the Hawkes Bay region visiting wineries, passing vineyards and fields of vegetables, and cycling through wildlife sanctuaries. After each days cycle ride, we stayed in excellent B&B accommodation and dined at superb restaurants (Craggy Range and Mission Estate). Our bags were transported for us... More

We hired bikes for two days. Jenny was very helpful, responded quickly and dropped off the bikes on time. The bikes were also of a very good quality and well maintained.

Great experience from start to finish! It was raining the morning of our booking and the offered to come pick us up later in the day when the weather improved! Bikes were of good quality and the transportation was fast and friendly. We did the Havelock North trail even though only 3 wineries were open at the beginning of October.... More

Beautiful flat scenic riding with varied scenery, encompassing vineyards, orchards, river paths and coastal paths, with enough stops on the way to quench our thirst and refuel us. Takaroa trails do an excellent job with the bikes provided and options for overnight stops and tips for places to stop and refuel en route. Highly recommend - very helpful and friendly.

We couldn't have asked for better weather, 3 days of sun and not much in the way of wind (which is not a cyclist's friend!) This cycling tour is a great way to explore this region, without it being too arduous for those of us who rarely otherwise ride. The scenery is varied, impressive and our two B&B s at... More

our first experience of one of the great New Zealand Cycle Trails via a pre-booked luxury (lazy) option and it was worth every penny. Booked with Jenny the 4 night / 5 day Diverse Hawkes Bay tour and enjoyed every minute of it. First rate organisation and communication. Accommodation ( B and B plus motel ) was just great ,...

Takaro Trails provided us with itinerary and booked our accommodation. We chose to take our own bikes but they provided back up and picked us and our bikes up at a point where the road was to busy and dropped us at our accommodation. We cycled for three days and were in awe of the scenery which changed dramatically day... More

The best network or trails we have experienced in nz. And the quality of organisation, standard of equipment and accommodation was fabulous. Would definitely use this company again. Nothing was too much trouble and very good to deal with
