This is a very professional operation. We chose to hire two Triumph Bonnevilles and have SPMT organise the accommodation based on the route we selected. The two bikes were well prepared, accommodation was fantastic and we had a great time. We would not hesitate to use these guys again!

From being picked up from the airport, the email communication, the presentation of the bike (s1000XR was a fantastic bike), the safety briefing and the overall experience, I recommend if you are considering hiring a motorcycle to tour South NZ, these are the guys to choose. They also dropped me off at my accomodation at the end, now thats service.

We found the south island absolutely packed with winding roads surrounded by gorgeous scenery, and very light on traffic, making a motorbike the perfect way to travel. The staff at South Pacific Motorcycle Tours staff were extremely friendly and helpful all the... More

They were awesome with communication on line, answered all my questions and made the entire booking process very easy. I had originally booked a 2014 BMW GS 1200, but... More

Our tour was one of the last in the season in April/May 2016. We were a bit worried since we were going two up in weather that was just about to turn a bit ugly.
