Marian was great!

We had a wonderful 4 hour waterfront bike trip with Marian. She is very knowledgeable and easy going. Would ask for her to lead us again!

Beautiful trip along bays, beaches and marches. Birds and flowers all along. Superb with an amazing arrival at Half Moon Bay and a return ferry to Auckland.

This is a great find which is located in downtown Auckland near the ferry piers. We rented electric bikes (e-bikes) which we had pre-booked online and took them on the ferry to explore Waiheke island. The bikes were nearly new and in great condition. The 40 km range on one charge is more than enough for a day's worth of... More

We rented two bikes for the day and went round the sites and sounds of Auckland. We were given a map and given advice on a route which was brilliant. Went up to mount Eden and then in the afternoon cycled along the cycle path down the coast. We cycled the length of queen street and at no point in... More

Got off a cruise ship and decided to do a cycling tour. What a great way to see the beautiful bay. Fantastic guides in Marion and Jackie. I'd highly recommend it.

We did a cycling tour for two across to Waiheke Island which included lunch and a wine tasting session at a vineyard. Our whole experience was excellent from start to finish. Jacqui was really helpful in getting everything pre-booked and replying to all my questions and she made sure we had the best arrangement for our tour. When we arrived... More

As the weather cleared, decided to rent a bike and cycle from their downtown Auckland outlet to Achilles point, with a stop in Mission Bay and St Heliers. Great half day out, great bikes, well maintained and contrary to some reviews here, a very friendly young lady that helped us out! Will recommend!

we hired our bikes for a great day over at Waiheke Island. The location of Adventure Capital made it very east to pick up and return our bikes, so close to hotel and ferry. Bikes were excellent 24 gears and comfortable enough for 3 blokes well over 50.

Sad start to our trip with snippy rude service which was slow and cumbersome. Once we got away from her the day improved, bikes were great and in good condition and we had a fun half day exploring the Auckland waterfront. Shame for an international visitor to experience such lousy Kiwi hospitality from central Auckland tourist zone on Sat 4... More

Hi Ngaio – glad you enjoyed the bikes and your ride. It’s a shame you did not make a pre-booking for your group of 5 and pay in advance; that way, the bikes, helmets and locks would have been ready to go on arrival. Although, you still would have had to be patient whilst we served other customers who had... More
