South Island trip with my 22yr old daughter. South Pacific was friendly and helpful. Giving useful tips. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a South Island motorcycle trip. And the South Island has to be some of the best motorcycling in the world. I did 3500k in 7 days. First day 500k was only held up in any... More

I wish there were more ways to say thank you. You are correct - The South Island of New Zealand surely does have the best motorcycling asphalt roads in the world - glad you experienced it, and hope to see you back for another Trip one day. More

South Pacific Motorcycle Tours exceeded our expectations and delivered superior customer service before,during and after our tour. We rented two bikes and did a 7 day self tour of the south island while visiting the country for a month. As this was our first time renting bikes and riding outside of the United States, we were a bit nervous. We... More

There is nothing better than spending the month of January riding through New Zealand. I rode Ronda the Honda (GL1800) and it was great. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Mike & crew absolutely bent over backwards to accommodate us. We gave just a day or so notice, wanted two BMW GS bikes for just 24 hours, I needed a lowered suspension and/or lowered seat 650, AND had no gear with us. They rejigged their schedule so we could take the bikes before their big group arrived the following day.... More

If you are visiting a far away place and planning on touring on motorcycle, you would want a lot of local knowledge to guide you, right? This is precisely why my wife and I choose South Pacific Motorcycle Tours for our 15 day tour of New Zealand's south and north islands. SPMT offers many choices for touring; guided tours, self-guided... More

We did a self-guided15 day tour of both islands in New Zealand. From the beginning, with Carole selecting great motels and B&B's, and creating a fantastic itinerary, South Pacific's personal touch made ours a wonderful experience. Each day's destination and points of interest were programmed into the GPS, so if you're not on a guided tour, you're not really 'alone'.... More

Toured 10 days on motor bikes and covered maybe 60% of the south island. Unbelievable and uncrowded roads. From Christchurch we rode to Lake Tekapo, Queenstown, Te Anau, Milford Sound, Clyde, Franz Josef, Greymouth, Hamner Springs, and back to Christchurch. Organized good accommodation along the way without difficulty. Just 3 negatives. Firstly 10 days on motor bikes a touch too... More

Thanks for the review and I'm glad you had a great trip. Ten days is our average number of motorcycle hire days, many riders spend over three weeks touring both islands. Like all our bikes, yours was road-tested and meticulously prepared to our usual high quality standard before going out on hire, and we would certainly never knowingly send a... More
