We had a superb 7 day trip with Brian and New Zealand Bicycle tours. The route was carefully planned in coordination with myself, and detailed maps were given to our group of 14 every day. Brian provided wonderful, healthy morning teas and lunches-which were very welcome. Suited up perfectly. As well,it was great to be able to use Brian's expertise... More

We contacted Brian Farrant of NZ Bicycle Tours last year inquiring about bicycle tours of New Zealand. Brian built us a custom tour which included two bicycle tours (6-day and 8-day) of the South Island and a week gap week for us to explore the Christchurch and Queenstown areas and to rest up. The bike tours were a fantastic experience.... More

Another brilliant trip with NZ Bicycle Tours. Slowly pedaling through the countryside with a group of friends, staying in comfortable accommodation, and enjoying the best of NZ wine and food makes for a memorable holiday whether you are a New Zealander or an international visitor.

Along with 6 friends and an American couple we have just completed another (6 day) guided road cycle tour with Brian Farrant of nzbicycletours.com The cycling distances each day were selected according to the terrain and scenery - these were increased or decreased to suit individual needs and weather conditions on the day (Of course the bus was always available)...

As I plan this year's family bike tour and compare past trips, I realize I've been tardy in recommending a remarkable custom tour in to the South Island organized by owner/operator, Brian Farrant. First, Brian loves his country, his array of tiptop bicycles, his cohorts, and being a tour guide. For 13 days and about 16 people of various riding... More

For four summers I have gone on cycling trips with Brian Farrant of New Zealand Bicycle Tours - the Mackenzie Basin, the West Coast, Coromandel and Central Otago. This is simply the best way to see New Zealand's magnificent countryside. Brian has up-to-date knowledge of off-the- beaten-trail places to cycle, swim, dine, and stay. For both New Zealanders and the... More

This is my third trip with New Zealand Bicyle tours and i have enjoyed them all. It will also not be my last. I can not think of a better way to travel with your friends, have a fitness holiday, see the country, stay in delightful accommodation and have a wonderful food experience every day. Brian's knowledge of every region... More

In February 2013 I was invited to join a group of New Zealand and British cyclists on a one-week bike trip in the Central Otago region (in the South Island of New Zealand). The trip was organized by Brian Farrant of New Zealand Bicycle Tours, based in Christchurch. I was a bit reluctant to go because the others were experienced... More

Thanks Stefan for your feedback. Every tour we do is a custom tour, and this tour was no exception. We researched and designed this one off tour through Central and coastal Otago to suit the wishes of the group Stefan joined. This area has some great places to stay, largely due to of the success of the Otago Rail Trail,... More
