We're on the Wellington Waterfront at Queens Wharf, right beside Dockside Restaurant, Fergs Kayaks and Tilt Espresso

10:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide and small group of no more than 13 people on Queens Wharf in central Wellington in time for a 10am or 1.30pm departure (depending on option selected). After listening to the safety briefing, learn how to operate your electric bike and enjoy time to practice in a safe area before heading out.

Once you’re feeling comfortable, saddle up for a fun bike tour of Wellington, and follow your guide along the Wellington Waterfront. Glide along the seafront, passing the lively port and harbor, and the beaches of Oriental Bay. Continue along the Miramar Peninsula and leave the bustle of the city behind as you cycle along the scenic coast. Pause along the way at a local café, where you’ll have chance to enjoy a coffee or purchase sandwiches and cakes (own expense), before looping back towards the city.

Finally, climb up to the lookout point of Mt Victoria for an unforgettable view over Wellington, the Miramar Peninsula, and the ocean.

Your tour ends around 2pm or 5.30pm back in central Wellington.

Great way to see Wellington and get some exercise at the same time. Jimmy was excellent. Very informative. Loads of insights on the City and its culture. The e-bikes are easy to operate and help you climb up inclines that you’d normally give in and walk up! Throughly recommended.

Excellent tour to check out the sights of Wellington and what a beautiful city it is! We were blessed with a fantastic day (all sunshine and no wind!) and our tour guide (Jimmy) was excellent. The climb up the hill to Mt Victoria was well worth the effort and the electric bikes were fantastic. Thanks Jimmy for a great few hours whilst we visited Wellington on a cruise ship!

Private Bike Tour

We lucked into a private bike tour when no other people signed up for it on this day. The electirc bikes made it easy to navigaate the hills of Wellinton. Our guide gave us multiple options for our routes and was very nice and knowlegable. This is the best way to quickly tour the city. We have biked cities all over the world, and this one was one of our favorites..

Sean and Jimmu were informative and fun guides. They took our group around the bays and out to a cafe for coffee and tea. The electric bikes were in excellent condition and a must in this windy city. We definitely recommend.

What a great tour! Best way to see a lot but not a too hurried pace. I was fortunate to be in Wellington on a gorgeous, not windy, sunny day plus it was just me on the tour! The guide, Jimmy, was very informative but not too much so I could also just enjoy the ride. The eBike made Wellington hills even the summit to Mount Victoria a breeze to manage. Highly recommend doing this if you only have a brief time in the city. Wellington is lovely, though, so try to spend more time here if you can.
