What people are saying about Queenstown

Ksena is a very experienced, caring and friendly guide. She guided me how to change gear and demostrated and guided me to try on the very very steep slope. I am very happy that I did it which I never believe my cycling skill until this cycling tour gave me the feeling of confidence on cycling ebike. I would highly recommend Rise to the Sky company. Maybe next time i wanna challenge the Ride to the Sky to the mountain. Thank you Ksena!!
