Although this review is long overdue (it was actually December 2013 but options don't go back that far), I would like to add my praise of Brian and all he does to others on this site. I was with a small group from a cruise ship who did a day tour with Brian from Akaroa to Arthur's Pass. Could not... More

I just returned from a 2 week bike trip around the south island of New Zealand. This was a trip with a focus on biking, not luxury, and priced as such. Thus, I was very pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the accommodations that Brian Farrant, our professional guide, had arranged. I had also expected to shed a few... More

Where to begin to express my apprecation for Brian Farrant, one of the best travel hosts I have encountered in my years of adventure travel. With a deep knowledge of local color, customs, safe travel roads, sensational eateries and a ability to bend to the desires of the group, it was hard to find flaws in the organization of our...

It was hard to know what to expect when traversing halfway around the globe and NZ Bicycle Tours delivered well beyond our expectations. From a seamless greeting at the airport to terrific and appropriate accommodations to excellent restaurants and the absolute best bike routes I've ever ridden on the planet. Brian, the owner of NZ Bicycle Tours has a special... More

As someone who usually makes all the plans for our travel excursions, I am quite sensitive to details. Brian's perfect execution allowed me to focus on my friends, my rides and the experience without worry about a thing. When I come back to NZ, I will again seek out Brian to lead our worry-free vacation.

Brian Farrant was our host, tour guide and SAG wagon driver. He organized a fantastic bicycle trip. Brian did a great job arranging accommodations and eating establishments. The bicycle routes took us through wonderful scenic routes and the SAG vehicle was always available for the fatigues and weary if the climb proved too steep. NZ Bicycle Tours is a fantastic... More

We are a group of cyclists from the United States who have bike all over the world with several different tour companies. Brian and NZ Bicycle tours did a great job and was one of the best experiences we've had anywhere in the world. He was meticulous in planning a custom tour of the south island for us. He exceeded...

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.
