Fantastic highly recommended!
I was picked up at the hostel I was staying in and after picking up another couple, we drove off with our bike tour guide who was great. He gave us a quick talk about Adelaide and as we drove up to the starting point on Mount Lofty, he explained how the bike trip worked. He had great mountain bikes for us plus helmets and gloves if needed. He was great to explain that we could walk on any part of the path if we felt too nervous. I did start by walking for a small section upon our descent but then started to ride. The path varies from rocks to grass/sand mix, back to sections of rocks. No paved pathway down this mountain! We stopped at the animal sanctuary for tea and cake plus visits with the many animals looked after in the sanctuary. Once we left, I think we all felt more comfortable and relaxed more as we continued on down the mountain. The views are fabulous and it was terrific to have been able to ride through sections of the city on our way to meet the van in order to be driven back to our hostel or hotel. I am thrilled to have been successful in my first mountain bike riding adventure. The tour company was very professional and I would highly recommend signing up for this adventure in Adelaide.
JUST GO FOR IT! I had only a few days to see Adelaide and this was the highlight. Brush up on your bike skills first as it'll require some good handling. I was left covered in mud but so much fun! Thanks Ian for picking me up from midpoint, I almost didn't make this trip as I couldn't get a bus!
Fantastic time on this bike tour. We saw some great wildlife on our decent including lits of koala in the wild. The bike tour is a great way to see parts of Adelaide that are off the beaten track and suitable for all abilities.
Absolutely perfect! It was a lovely day with a lovely view. Our guide, Matt, was in no hurry to get us down the 'mountain'. We took our time feeding the kangaroos and admiring the teeth of the Tasmanian devil. Matt also gave us lots of warning on the 'tricky' bits of the trail which, mostly, weren't all that tricky. The bikes were in excellent shape, with good braking and a lot of traction. If you're after a challenging ride, this isn't for you. But for the traveler just wanting to get out and enjoy the scenery, it's perfect!
It was a highlight to my trip.
The guide is really good, stopping at critical points to guide you to the way and even though I've never done mountain bike before it was good fun. Hard enough to challenge myself.
There is a walk in the park. We have some breakfast and bike again. Highly recommended
Excellent, Great fun...and very well guided by Ian.
We opted not to visit the actual wildlife park, except for coffee and muffins before heading down the mountain, spotting and photographing Koalas in the trees and then through the back roads and cycle tracks to the city.
Great half day trip, picked up from hotel, top guide, good bikes, and great value. Highly recommended, even if you haven't been mountain biking before.
Brilliant but quite scary at the start if, like me, you haven't been on a bike for many years. Ian was fantastic, very patient and helpful. The stop at the wildlife park was great, petting a koala and feeding the Kangaroos. Also coffee and cake which was very welcome. Thoroughly enjoyable and great value.
This tour was one of the highlights to our trip to Australia. Ian, our guide, was well organized and guided us down the trail expertly. It is a great way to see Cleland Park and the views on the descent were spectacular. Ian stopped several times to point out Koalas in the trees and the Magpies were racing us down the hill. It was nice to have a tour that involved exercise as well as seeing some beautiful scenery. Thanks Ian for making our trip to Australia really special.
Great tour! Guide was friendly and knowledgeable and very helpful with using the bikes. Trail through the bush of the park was easy to ride and we saw koalas and other animals in the wild.
Great way to spend a morning in Adelaide. Really enjoyed it. Our guide was really good and looked after us fantastically
Good, outdoor and enjoyable experience. Not a lot of things for active teenagers to do in Adelaide but this was a good one - my son enjoyed it. Tour operator is a great guy.
A good way to see a part of Adelaide you wouldn't normally see. Biking on the trails was good fun and you don't need to be a pro mountain biker to do it. Cleland Park was good but seeing koala's in the wild was a bit special. Overall we were very pleased to have done the tour.
