We took an eight day independent tour in the South of South Island and it was perfect!

We had a wonderful experience hiring our bike to do a self guided trip around the South Island. From bring collected at the Airport, introduced to the bike and NZ riding rules and conditions until we arrived back after 10 days of great riding, and finally being delivered to our B&B the service was great. Look forward to doing it... More

Picked up from and dropped off to our bnb by very friendly and helpful owner operaters. Our BMW f800 was in perfect condition and we were really impressed by the bike.

The ten day tour around the north of the South Island in which I took part was terrific. Good choice of route, restaurants and accommodation, an outstanding visit to the air show in Omaka and perfectly prepared bike combined to make a memorable tour. Even the rain provided by Cyclone Debbie didn't dampen our spirits. The group of 15 was... More
