  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • For your enjoyment and safety, groups are small and personal, so a maximum of 6 riders per group, plus friendly guide
  • Minimum age 14 years old (teenagers of 14-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult).
  • Minimum rider height is 5 foot (152cm).

  • Whilst experience riding an electric bike is not necessary (we'll provide an orientation and we'll do a test ride to make sure you're comfortable before we head off), you must of course be able to ride a bike! If you haven't ridden in a while, for your enjoyment/safety and that of your fellow riders, we strongly recommend you have a practice riding at home before your visit to Auckland. As well as riding on our wonderful cycleways, we will of course be riding in the road at times (to get to the good places!). Riding in traffic is a dynamic environment, so you will need to be comfortable riding in the road in order to enjoy the tour. And Auckland's volcanic past means that there a quite few hills to go up and down - the eBikes make going up easy, but you'll obviously need to be able to ride downhill! If you’d prefer a shorter, easier ride along Auckland’s beautiful waterfront - check out The Easy Rider, one of our other tour listings!

Bike Tour Highlight of Auckland
Cheryl_K, Mar 2023
Carson was a great tour guide We got a wonderful overview of different areas in the 20 k ride. First time on an electric bike and loved it!
Great way to see the city!
Erin_A, Mar 2023
This is a fun way to see Auckland! The guide did a great job of teaching us how to use the e-bikes and letting us practice on them before we hit the road. We covered about 25km and saw many beautiful sites! I would totally do the tour again, and I’d recommend it to friends. I will say, if you aren’t a confident bike rider - this is not the tour for you. We moved very quickly from stop to stop, road on bike lanes on busy roads, and had to navigate a lot of traffic lights and such. Our group was of varied ages and abilities, and I think the slower/older individuals on the tour were frantically trying to keep up.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for the great review Erin! Glad to hear you enjoyed your tour 👏🏻 And thanks for the comments on the route. Safety is paramount to us (e.g. per the comprehensive safety briefing we give at the start of each tour and the audio system that allows our guides to tell our guests about road conditions, turns etc as we ride). As you mentioned, as well as riding on Auckland’s cycleways, our route on The Classic tour includes riding on on the road at times (to get to places like the beautiful Mt Eden). For any potential riders reading this review who would prefer a tour exclusively on Auckland’s cycleways, we have another tour - The Easy Rider - which gives a great, short introduction to Auckland and eBike riding!
Great way to see some of Auckland
Lyle_T, Mar 2023
Great over view of Auckland from sea to the top of a volcano crater. Great narrator, Eddy, letting us know what we were seeing along route with individual headsets made the experience great. Safety was paramount for the group, waiting for all to regroup if caught by sets of lights. I recommend recent cycling experience, balance and road smarts as pedestrian and driving.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks so much for the review - glad you had fun! And yes - rider safety is our key focus 🙂
Highly Recommend!
TAWNY_K, Mar 2023
We did this tour with Carson on our first full day in Auckland. It was a fantastic introduction to the city. Carson started us off with an introduction to the electric bikes and let us practice a bit before we hit the streets. Since this was the first time we'd been on one, the practice was appreciated. The electric bikes made the large hills in Auckland a breeze and let us enjoy the tour. We covered a lot of ground and learned and saw a lot. Our group was small so felt more personalized and the ear speakers made it easy to hear Carson's commentary. We were late emailed pictures that Carson snapped during the tour. Awesome tour with an awesome company, I highly recommend them!!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for the review and for recommending us Tawny - glad you had fun!

Eric_W, Mar 2023

Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for the review Eric!
Great introduction tour to Auckland
Richard_E, Feb 2023
The owner was our guide and everything was smooth, fun and informative. E-bikes were all in great shape and it make for a great day. Highly recommend this tour as it was a great overview of Auckland (it's very hilly so the e-bikes were greatly appreciated).
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks so much for recommending us. And yes - the eBike motors certainly come in handy on Auckland’s hills!

Getting to know Auckland on an e-bike.
Kerry_D, Jan 2023
Eddie was very professional, and very enthusiastic about showing a small group of us around Auckland. I felt completely safe, heard lots of interesting history about the city via an audio, and got an excellent overview of Auckland . The bike was easy to use after only 2 previous times on one. Cafe and restaurant recommendations were much appreciated too. Thanks and well done Eddie.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you Kerry. So glad you enjoyed your tour!

The best way to see the “real” Auckland
John_G, Jan 2023
Riding through the old parts of Auckland and going up Mount Eden. Also meeting new people who also enjoyed the tour and then having lunch with them. Our tour guide was excellent . He went over all safety rules before we left and kept us together as a group with commentaries as we rode along.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Lovely to hear that you had so much fun and met some new friends on your tour! 🙂
Carson’s the best
