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!

NZ South Island is fabulous place to ride a motorbike and South Pacific Motorcycle Touring is a fantastic company that can make that dream come true. They are very easy to deal with and can take of all needs. Very friendly and knowledgeable people. Great company.

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.

My boyfriend and I rented Poppy, the BMW F800 GS, to tour around New Zealand for a week. 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
