" Firstly Greta is a terrific tour guide. Makes each person feel so special.

She comes up with alternatives if needed. Six of us travelled in a van (Greta is an excellent driver) and our accommodation was comfortable and spacious and we felt safe in Covid times keeping in our bubble. We were most fortunate to have glorious weather warm and blue skies throughout apart from fog early am in Dunedin.

The scenery in the south is to die for. Absolutely stunning in late summer and into Autumn."

"Greta’s tours are comfortable, safe and exciting. She is absolutely caring and she goes above and beyond expectations. She picks you up from your home and makes you feel welcome immediately.

I totally recommend her tours. It’s fun and exciting. Lots of adventure awaits you and the price is great."

"I really enjoyed the recent trip with BikeHikeStay to Southland, Otago and Stewart Island. Every day was packed with interesting places to see without being over busy and making us unduly tired.


Greta is very good at catering for people's individual interests and nothing is too much trouble with her."

"We are just completing a wonderful Southland and Stewart island adventure with our wonderful Greta.


A great no hassle holiday in great weather and we have enjoyed the many extras Greta has added to our trip.  The best and most relaxing trip Eric and I have ever had and we have travelled heaps. Highly recommended for safe and well-informed travel."

"Tony and Greta were both so lovely and extremely helpful. The bikes were excellent with baskets and high vis vests added for those in our party that wanted them. Greta gave us directions, advice, a map and also bottles of chilled water. Highly recommend hiring bikes from Tony and Greta!"

A group of us went to Rotoura for the day, where we visited Seva Day Spa & Relaxation and were pampered for a few hours and then onto the Secret Spot to soak our feet, while having a lovely beverage. It was good value for money and professionally organised by Greta Verhoeven.
