About V8 Trike Tours Tauranga
Experienced tour provider, V8 Trike Tours is the icing on the cake when it comes to tours! Having owned and operated a large coach company in the UK moving to NZ and taking it easy we stumbled upon these magnificent machines. We just couldn't resist the temptation in creating a market for tours in the beautiful Bay of Plenty - what a great success and tourists & locals just love them. Our business is family run and we are passionate about giving our customers an unforgettable experience!

Overview
V8 Trike Tours NZ offer a unique, fun and thrilling experience exploring the Bay of Plenty on a V8 Chevrolet Trike.

Built in New Zealand, powered by a 5.7L 350 (330 bhp) Chevrolet Edelbrock motor, our trikes are the ultimate in power and excitement. With the low centre of gravity the trikes are stable, have less roll and amazing grip around corners.

NO HELMETS REQUIRED –Our trikes are operated under a TSL with NZTA and registered as cars (not motorbikes) so helmets are not required. They are fitted with bucket seats complete with compulsory 3-point seat belts. Our drivers are NZTA passenger endorsed and are knowledgeable offering a fully guided tour.

From the age of 2 to 102 we cater for all - disabled and special needs can also take these rides as they are stimulating and fun.

Acreditted with an Excellence Award, V8 Trike Tours NZ are Qualmark, ISS, Tourism NZ & Tourism Bay of Plenty endorsed.
