Had the best time. Booking on the website was really easy and Jenny was great in answering questions. Really enjoyed the whole experience, and would highly recommend it. All the people at the wineries were brilliant and friendly and especially enjoyed a platter and full glass of wine under the trees at Te Awanga Estate at the end.

For three Senior Citizen social bikies like ourselves this was just ideal. To start with Jenny was an extremely good communicator, and from the initial enquiry to the final payment everything was a breeze. The bikes were excellent, the instruction, maps and general local information totally adequate, and the accommodation very good indeed. You can select which trails would suit... More

Took the day rental NZD $40 and decided to take the 40K ride around Napier Bay to Taradale via the Church Road and Misson Estate winerys. Parts of the route pass Napier's industrial port and main highway which aren't the most scenic. Away from the roads the route is mainly limestone track or gravel pathways. Easy enough ride unless it... More

In September 2016, Takaro Trails won the Hawkes Bay Supreme Tourism award. If the 3 day cycling trip that my son and I did was anything to go by, this was well-deserved indeed. The bikes: great quality and perfectly suited to the job, the panniers were well-designed and looked brand new, bike tools and souvenir water bottles provided. Service: pre-reading... More

Thanks so much for your review, I really appreciate it! I hope the rest of your North Island cycling adventure has gone well? Be sure to pop in and say hi if you do make it back to Hawke's Bay before you head home. I'd love to hear how you went on the Bridge to Nowhere trail. More

Takaro picked us up and dropped us off in front of our motel :-). Bikes were very good - any own backpack not necessary. Got some water - any own water was not necessary. Gave us advice for the various wineries. We had a very strong wind that day but fortunately blowing from the back ... Proposal: in case of... More

Thanks for your review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your cycle with us. Our online booking form does actually ask for heights, and it's also something we would normally request when taking bookings by email or Viator, so apologies if it didn't happen on this occasion. We appreciate the feedback. More

Takaro Trails were fabulous in getting us out on our self-guided bike ride around parts of Napier. Their map provided all the detail we needed. Leant a lot about Napiers history too, given the ride we did. Would recommend and hire bikes again with, Takaro Trails.

Our family of six, Mom and Dad with four teenagers, had a wonderful day. We didn't know what to expect, but from the very beginning the team at Takaro were very professional and friendly. The bike ride was all on a bike path (except for the final 1 km or so) with beautiful scenery of the ocean and orchard. We... More

My boyfriend and I chose to do a bike riding tour over a bus tour and we are so glad we made that choice. We were picked up in the morning and given everything we needed to get through the day including water. It was such a great way to see everything and even though there were others in the... More

This was a fantastic family activity - 4 of us (including 2 reluctant late teens) turned up for a day hire that we had pre-booked. When we arrived, bikes were ready and had sizing all done and ready to go. The two staff on site explained all the map and directions but also provided a map and very detailed written... More
