John & Paulette are just wonderful people, they got good bikes and supplied us with water in bike bottles! They picked us up at the hostel and gave us a ride home afterwards. Highly recommendable Bike Hire for vineyard tours! Cheers, Johannes

We did a wine tour on bikes in Mendoza and thought it would be great fun to do the same in Blenheim, since it's flat and easy riding. Actually, the perosnalized service we got was way better than Mendoza. We were picked up from our hotel on time, driven to Stonehaven Vineyard to pick up our bikes. The only must-do... More

We rented out a bike, which was quite old. For 40 NZL Dollars you would expect something better. During handover the process was quite complicated including the instruction, on which side to hang the helmet during breaks. Also not flexible, when we asked to bring back the bike by car... ;-/

This was one of the successes of our holiday. John was great when emailing to arrange, picked us up exactly on time and gave good advice. He was also there when we returned, giving us a prompt lift home. The bikes were in great condition and easy to get around on. I would definitely recommend.

This was a great way to visit the wineries. John picked us up at our hotel in Blenheim and took us on a short tour of a neighbouring vineyard. We picked three different types of grapes off the vine and tasted them...absolutely delicious. We then went to pick up the bicycles, and he gave us a map and spent time... More

Was a bit wary as my wife had never ridden a scooter before but she was given the chance to ride in the grounds before heading out. The roads close by have cycle lanes adjacent to the road so are pretty safe. John the owner gave us some great pointers for places to see and we had a super 4-5... More

Guys from BookaBike picked us up at our B&B, and bought us back at the end of the day. For us, it was the best way to explore the wineries around! We received a map with all the wineries, and some personal recommendations. You'll see the exact same places as the organised tours offer, but on your own pace and... More

We were picked up and taken to the bike pick up location. We were given a map and good, friendly recommendations on where to go. The bikes were comfortable (unlike others we had in different cities on this trip). The starting location is much closer to wineries than other bike tours we looked at, which is why we selected this... More
