Even gave us a cup of tea and a biscuit afterwards before they drove us back. Wonderful trip and friendly hosts. Location is spot on to visit the vienyards as you are half way down the main road towards them from Belnheim so it saves you cycling out of town.

We rented a scooter from John and Paulette and spend a wonderful day scooting around the Marlborough and tasting fantastic wines! I was a first time rider but immeadiately felt at ease when John showed me how simple it really is (and the scooters were practically brand new!). I can't think of a better way to explore the vineyards!

Book-a-bike was fantastic. Mountain Bikes to tour the vineyards would have been cheaper than other places in Blenheim had we used them, but decided to hire the scooters instead. By hiring scooters we were able to go further and see more than we thought we were going to. The scooters took only a minute to get the hang of and... More

My husband and I stayed at Stonehaven during our honeymoon and also rented the bikes from John. It was great as John and Paulette gave us perfect information on which vineyards to visit and pointers on the best places to eat & shop during our biking trip. They also have adifferent sizes of bikes since I wanted a smaller one.... More
