This was a great experience for our party of 4 including me at age 78.The equipment was great and Ian was a fantastic tour guide. Stopping at the park to feed the animals and ourselves was a welcome break. The trip through town was fun...More

A fantastic run tour of shepherds hill conservation park at night. Led by Ian from escapegoats and Sean a national parks ranger. Ian's expertise and enthusiasm made for a fantastic experience. Highly recommend.

Small group, so we used an alternate descent route on bikes that are amazingly good after my old commuter. Excellently led, pausing regularly to describe the next stretch of track - comforting, as I hadn't been on a mountain bike in years! So fun cruising...More

This was a great way to see some of the wineries in the McLaren... Definitely recommend this if you like wine tasting but want something different from being driven in a van all day.

What a great way to see the country side and meet new people, while trying delicious boutique wines and riding easy through the quiet streets. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

No, sorry, none of our tours would be suitable for having a toddler on the back, they are too tough trails. I would not ride with my daughter on the back on our tours.
