We have recently completed the Kaikoura Wine Trail tour with Pure Trails and would recommend it highly to anyone thinking of giving a cycling tour a try. As our first bike tour, it was a great introduction to the genre. A combination of sightseeing, wine tasting , gourmet dining and cycling, it had everything! Nothing was too much trouble for our host, Hilary, who worked extremely hard to provide us with a first rate experience. The cycling was tough going at times – especially for newbies, and against the wind – but this made for a sense of achievement when a particular cycle ride was accomplished. Thoroughly worthwhile!

Our second time with Pure Trails and again we found them amazing. The planning that goes into making these trips is spot on and the detail taken is second to none. JohnK was our driver/organizer as well as everything else that comes with taking a group of 14 riders on an amazing tour of the upper West Coast. John is highly professional as well as funny, kind and very very patient. We loved our trip and are already talking about planning the next one with Pure Trails. Highly recommended.

I thought our Alps to Ocean was good but this was just as good. I’m so glad we did this. We enjoyed our cycle trip and are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country and to be able to do this. Our guide Kevin was an excellent host from Pure Trails and would recommend him for any tour Pure Trails has to offer. He is very good at what he does.

Hilary is an extremely knowledgeable host, van driver, and food provider ‘en pisté!
This tour was well organised even down to the superb weather! The mountains are spectacular, the lakes sparkling and the tracks we used well formed..

We recently completed the Otago Rail Trail with Pure Trails.
Our group has been on a number of supported cycle tours, both here and overseas.
Hilary is to be complimented on her organisation and planning, and the quality of her bikes, the whole trip went like clockwork.
The daily additions to the cycling were especially well suited for our group, and we would recommend Pure Trails to anyone.

We have just completed our 5th trip with Pure Trails and have loved every trip. Can’t recommend them highly enough. They are fantastic. All the guides are exceptional, trails brilliant, and food and accommodation spoil us. Thanks to Hilary and team for a great experience.
