Guided tour

Guest Reviews

My husband, 1 year old daughter and I had a great morning out cycling. Highly recommended even if you don’t think you’re fit enough.
We loved the electric bikes and our first tour (Bride Valley) so much, that we booked another one (Portesham and Upwey) for a few days later.
I would recommend these electric bike tours to ANYONE. We were a party ranging from 18 – 71 in age and EVERYONE just loved it.
My sister organised this as we were visiting from Australia, and it was really the best afternoon we had in the UK.
The bikes are really comfortable and easy to control and we couldn’t believe how straightforward they made cycling uphill.
We toured beautiful inland spots we would otherwise have missed. I will definitely do it again. Anyone who can ride a bike will love this experience.
Martin is a pleasure to travel with, full of interesting local information. Would I recommend his tour? Yes, with the greatest enthusiasm.
Marshwood Trails offered us the perfect opportunity to enjoy a lovely bike ride through glorious countryside with a very knowledgeable guide.
Apart from the true beauty of the area one must mention how simple it was to use the bikes and just how simple they made climbing the steepest of hills.
The electric bikes made it possible to see a lot more of the peninsula than we could have done in a day otherwise. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

 “Most Amazing Birthday Surprise!!”                           Reviewed 31 July 2015          Reach31

“I planned a bike tour as a surprise birthday gift for a friend and they weren’t disappointed! We both had so much fun and an amazing way to discover the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

It’s for all biking abilities and the electric motor gives you that little push you need to get up those steep hills :) . Martin the tour guide and owner is great fun and made the entire experience worthwhile. I wouldn’t hesitate to book another tour!!!”

I’ve never ridden an electric bike in my life, and yet within five minutes it  feels like second nature. This really is the perfect way to explore without getting all hot and bothered.Dorset Magazine.
Instinctively I ready myself for a tough, heart-pounding climb…but…as I press down on the pedals I am amazed at how easily we fly up the hill.Daily Mail.
