This was our second trip to New Zealand and the second time we have explored this amazing country on two wheels. This time, we decided to explore the South Island on a 2010 Honda Goldwing from South Pacific Motorcycle Tours. We have rented motorcycles in several countries and have never had such a good experience. We were greeted by Neil,... More

Day Trip to Arthur's Pass was a magic scenic ride and awesome experience. Thanks to the professional and friendly advise from the Team at South Pacific Motorcycle Tours. We would highly recommend this company. Stay Upright and Enjoy Your Journey.

We used South Pacific to hire 2 BMW tourer motorbikes to visit NZ for 3 weeks. We collected the bikes from Auckland, visited them in Christchurch as part of our route and dropped off again in Auckland, we stayed with family and in Holiday Parks, Youth Hostels and Caravan Sites. In the build up to our holiday South Pacific provided... More

And I'm not just talking about the countryside that the South Island has to offer, either! Carole and Mike run their business like the best bed and breakfast places you've ever stayed at: a homely, welcoming, personal greeting and service that is, in my (albeit limited in the BnB arena) experience, second to none I have ever encountered. Nothing is... More

My husband and I rented motorcycles for a 10 plus day self guided tour through NZ South Island. I had "Betty" the triumph and my husband "Holly" the Honda. This experience was beyond Amazing. The bikes were spot on, the route never missed a "must see", the lodgings were superior. Every day was better than the next and we couldn't... More

I selected this company above all the others in New Zealand because of their sensible insurance bond. They just take your credit card DETAILS to secure against any damage where as most of the other companies actually take a deposit from your card. They picked me up at my hotel and the packing station for transferring all my luggage was... More

Carole and Mike Lester run a great Motorcycle rental company in Christchurch, NZ. We rented 2 bikes from them (Triumph Bonneville T100 & BMW F650GS) for a period of 2 days and the experience was superb! They offer a pickup service in their van from your hotel and once at their HQ outside Christchurch, you're greeted with bikes of all... More

An absolutely amazing week ...... as our time in New Zealand was limited, we started with the Southern Alps fully-guided tour, but then left the group in Invercargill after about 4 days and continued on a self-guided tour for the remainder of the week. From the start, everything was dealt with promptly and personally, and a fantastic itinerary was arranged... More

Went on the 11 night Southern Alps package. Rode a new Triumph Bonneville T100 through spectacular scenery and on roads that begged to have motorcycle riders on them. From my initial email enquiries through to the conclusion of my South Island holiday, the professionalism of Carole, Mike and the team was outstanding. Any enquiries were promptly and expertly answered, reservations... More
