We hired a pair of motorcycles (F700GS's) for an 8 day self guided tour around New Zealand's South Island. The owner's Mike and Carole are super nice and take great pride in their business. We got a warm and friendly welcome as we got picked up to get the bikes. As we arrived the bikes were parked just outside the... More

The wife and I hired a GS1200 for a few weeks to do the South Island (self guided). South Pacific Motorcycle Tours (SPM) picked us up in Christchurch (CC) CBD and drove us to their base about 20 min out of CC, and at the end of our trip dropped us off at the airport.....no hassles at all. This is... More

My 12 day South Island guided tour was just fantastic....even though New Zealand summers are not always as wished (don't forget your rain gear ;-). Betty (Bonneville) was in very good shape, and the perfect ride for this kind of trip. Logistics and accomodation were top. Our tour guides were very friendly and caring. I would definitely recommend South Pacific... More

We just returned to Alaska after an incredible 15 day GPS Tour of the North and South Islands. We had high expectations after reading the S. Pacific package descriptions, and reading the reviews, but everything about this trip and tour company far exceeded anything we could have imagined. Truly a trip of a lifetime, made possible because of the professional,... More

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.
