What To Expect

Additional Info

  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • 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!
  • Closed toe shoes are required. Sports gear not necessary - casual clothes are fine but dress to the conditions please.
  • Free storage available for small bags at the city centre departure point.

  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 6 travelers

We had a good ride...
Yungki_A, Feb 2023
We had a good ride although it was raining and got a flat tire at almost the end of the ride. Carson, our tour guide was communicative and helpful.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thanks for the review. Sorry the weather didn’t play ball (it’s been a crazy “Summer” so far here in Auckland!). And whilst flat tyres do happen from time to time (the joys of cycling 🙂) we can always fix them on the road and get you on your way in no time! Best wishes, Eddie
A great way to spend an afternoon
Rick_T, Jan 2023
Interesting and easy cycle around Auckland with Eddie who is extremely knowledgeable about the area. Bikes were easy to ride and Eddie was very conscious of safety and ensuring everyone was comfortable. Great photos provided. Loved it - many thanks.

Thanks for the review! We like to think that we offer great value for money without tours, so it’s great to get that feedback 👍🏻
Great way to see the ward and down town area
Gary_T, Jan 2023
We are very pleased with The Inside Loop, electric bike tour. Carson was our group leader and is excellent with his caring for us, for our safety, and that we enjoyed the ride. Although I’m an experienced rider my wife is not. I was glad we spent time reviewing the functions and experience of these electric bikes. The bikes themselves are very functional and adapt to every rider skill level. The route is safe and well planned. We went about 10 miles (18 km). We did not have to ride in heavy traffic lanes with autos since there are extensive dedicated bike lanes. I highly recommend this tour of Auckland and Carson as your guide.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks Gary - we really appreciate your review and are delighted that you enjoyed your tour with Carson!
Excellent guided tour
Tamara_B, Jan 2023
Navigating the streets of Auckland wouldn’t be possible without a great guide. The microphone was also essential and fun as we learned allot of history too
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for the review Tamara and thanks for your kind comments about your guide. Great to hear you had fun!
The tour leader, Carson,...
Richard_B, Jan 2023
The tour leader, Carson, was great but the tour was not a tour of “Auckland’s Coolest Neighbourhoods” which was how it was advertised. Though not what we were expecting it was still fun and informative.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for the review and the feedback Richard - appreciated. Regarding your route, from time to time and to ensure the safety of our riders, our guides may vary the route slightly to take into account the riding ability of the group. In those circumstances the route will not, therefore, be exactly as advertised. It looks like we could have done a better job of communicating that to you on the day - apologies. In any event, we do always aim to make sure that any alternative route taken is enjoyable - so it’s great to hear that you all had a fun and informative tour! Best wishes, Eddie
Great ride!
George_o, Dec 2022
The ride was terrific, first time on an electric bike. Would recommend taking this tour early in your time in Auckland as your guide will fill you on things ti do and visit.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks so much for the review. Great to hear you enjoyed the ride. And thanks for recommending us!

MarieLouise_J, Nov 2022
Phew, we were so lucky to have good weather for the tour, would have been very disappointed to have missed out on the great experience. Wonderful guide, beautiful city, would do it again and would definitely choose the longer tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Very happy to hear you had a great experience. Hopefully we'll see you again!
Great way to see Auckland!
AmandaMikle, Sept 2022
Such a fun tour! This was a great way to see Auckland. Our tour guide was very nice and patient (we had some older ladies on the trip that were difficult at times). Highly recommend!
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Great to hear you had fun on your eBike tour with Carson and thanks for the recommendation! Best wishes, Eddie
This was a fun tour, I was able to...
John M, May 2018
This was a fun tour, I was able to go to the top of Mount Eden and view the entire city. It was a great time.
This was the best way to get to know...
MariaLucia_P, Jan 2018
This was the best way to get to know Auckland. Super organized, we had earpieces so we stayed communicated. The guide gave us relevant information about the city and also assisted us with the driving signals because we are used to driving in the other side of the road so it was challenging to cross every intersection. The bicycles were easy to use because they were also electrical, so in the hills it wasnt difficult at all and everyone can do it. The city is beautiful. We loved this tour and I highly recommended it.
