Overview

One of the best tour experiences on the Mount by far! Certainly the most exhilarating way to see the beautiful Bay of Plenty. Our set tours start from a 25 minute ride taking you along our stunning beach and back through the town to a two and half hour breath taking overview of the whole region. Or you can hire them by the hour and go where you wish. the The trikes are extremely comfortable, stable and come with an experienced driver guide. Your safety is paramount to us and whilst it is not a legal requirement we have taken it upon ourselves to put our trikes through an independent mechanical & saftey inspection every 6 weeks to ensure the highest possible standards are met.

This was a fun way to spend 20 to 25 minutes. Beautiful bikes. Fantastic Owner Riders. Would have loved to be on open road with 100k speed limit. Felt very safe at all times. A lovely voucher to receive as a gift.
