What you'll do

Learn about life for the locals in Auckland - all from the comfort of an electric bike. Escape the tourist trail and zip around the city’s beautiful waterfront and it's cool central neighborhoods on this 2.5 hour electric bike guided tour. Find out where the locals go to socialize and to enjoy the beautiful natural environment in and around our city.

Starting from the Pullman Hotel Auckland (see the Notes and Meeting Location on where to find us), we'll ride up a nearby cycleway to check out Karangahape Road (known as "K Road" by the locals) - learning about its edgy past and promising future. Then it's on to Ponsonby - one of the best places to eat, drink and shop in Auckland. We'll check out some other local neighbourhoods too, before heading back down to sea level, to cruise along the waterfront and check out the delights of Wynyard Quarter and the Viaduct.

And at the end of the tour, I'll give you a list of my favourite cafes, restaurants and bars around the central city - many of which we'll have cycled past! Plenty of options for you to try out during the rest of your stay in this amazing city.

PLEASE NOTE - if you can't find availability for this tour on the date you are looking for, we recommend you check out our other Auckland eBike tour with Airbnb Experiences: "Sky to Sea" - https://abnb.me/NyUmFWofuX?s=51

I was born and raised in Scotland, so I look good in a kilt. But Auckland has been home for a long time now. My co-host Carson and I are highly-rated cycle tour guides and are passionate about cycling in Auckland. So if you ride with us we will share with you our in-depth knowledge of our roads and cycleways, as well as a local's insights into life in the city!

We truly believe that Auckland is a fantastic place to visit, and to live in. And our city has world-class eating/drinking options - so as a bit of a foodie too, we can give you plenty of recommendations for your stay!

Where you'll be

I've ridden the streets and cycleways of Auckland for over a decade - so as well as showing you the highlights, I’ll take you to those hidden places where the standard tours don’t go. And our new cycleway network makes it so much fun to explore the city - especially on our shiny electric bikes (which make it super easy to get around!). I'll give you an insider's view, so you can make the most of your time in Amazing Auckland!

We had a fantastic ebike tour with Carson! The views from the tpp of Mt Eden were spectacular and we really enkyoed rhe rollercoaster ride on the pink lanes : ) Carson was mega personable, knowledgable and always made a great effort to check that pace was good and that we were safe and happy. He even managed to capture snaps along the way! The e bikes were really comfortable and suitable for all fitness abilities - even with the hills. This is a brilliant way to see all corners of auckland in a really fun and memorable way. Highly recommend!
