• From the warmest of welcomes on arrival in Christchurch, to the final fond farewells, Mike and Alison literally made it their business to ensure that Kath and I had the motorcycling holiday of a lifetime!

  • Nothing is better than two weeks with Mike & Alison in New Zealand unless you include Trevor. The "Ride Nude Zealand" bare buns bikers had the tour of a life time with Paradise Motorcycle Tours. All accommodations were top shelf and we ate like kings.We will never forget the amazing places, exceptional roads, and warm, wonderful memories of this ’trip of a lifetime’.

  • From day one when the limo collected us from the airport it was a holiday we would cherish for the rest of our life. Everything we did and were involved in showed someone had put a lot of thought into making this holiday one they would like to go on. The bike was new and gleaming, they all gleam when you start out, 4000 km plus of glorious unbelievable scenery and experiences later, they had got dirty but it’s actually a veneer of fantastic memories. Wifey was as enthusiastic as me and even enjoyed her days in the air conditioned bus that carried our luggage about on the one day it rained, one of the best riding days, and on the days she let me ride the best motorcycle road in the world solo. It left me speechless and euphoric!

  • I really have to thank you for all that you did to make me feel more than welcome in NZ, you were the perfect hosts and my tour was truly the adventure of a life time. The bike was perfect, the scenery and vistas beyond description, the people I met were absolutely delightful. You picked all the right places to see, and all the best to do. On a one to ten scale, I must applaud you with a twelve. More than perfect, I'm so happy I booked this tour with you, and am recommending it to my buddies as I go along.

  • What initially attracted me to the 14 day North and South Island tour was the prospect of good weather, great roads, and fantastic scenery. I got that and much more - friendly and welcoming tour guides, wonderful food, really amazing landscape and great excursions off the bike. The BMW I hired was incredibly economical and just ridden-in, all the bikes were almost brand new. Having a chase vehicle to carry luggage was a bonus. The hotels were well chosen and very good quality.

  • What a wonderful time we had... getting back to work was so hard... many thanks to all you guys at Paradise and of course, Alison for checking on us right through the trip...the bnb's were great... our hosts were such lovely people... those 10 days were easily one of the best in our lives.

  • We did a self-guided tour around both North and South Islands and couldn't have asked for better organisation by Alison! We just turned on the Sat Nav every morning and with no problems at all arrived at our own leisure to superb accommodation each evening!

  • We enjoyed 3 days on the new Spyder and could not speak more highly of the service and friendly contact. The bike and B&B's were first class. We started out wanting to try the Spyder out as we were thinking of buying one and whilst the jury is still out on that one, we will be back to hire again for sure.

  • A huge thank you from the Beemer Banditos for making our Tour of New Zealand Dream come true! Your commitment to our satisfaction was evident in every interaction. Great bikes, unique hotels and wonderful roads to experience. We are pleased and appreciative of all you did to make our vacation perfect. Thanks again and we hope to see you again one day soon.

  • Just got back from a 10 day tour of the south island. Mike and Alison made everything easy and provided exceptional customer service. The accommodation they recommended was of the highest standard and the B&B stays were run by exceptional people. I would recommend Paradise Motorcycle Tours to anyone wanting to see some of the most stunning scenery in the world from the back of a well maintained bike.

  • Thank you for your very professional attitude and friendly nature that has made our adventure something we will never forget. The bikes were fantastic, the accommodation outstanding and we were able to enjoy the ride without the worry of finding accommodation as it was all pre-booked. Mike had also pre-programmed a GPS to guide us along the best motorbike roads possible and get us to our accommodation each day without any hassle. The amazing thing about dealing with Mike and Alison was they even thought of all the little things like having a taxi waiting for us when we arrived at Christchurch airport, made reservations at the Skyline restaurant, pre-booked helicopter flight over the glaciers and suggestions in a printed itinerary of places to eat and sight see. Our experience from first contact right through to when we left the island has been nothing short of outstanding.

  • Alison and Mike were able to arrange a tour even with only two weeks notice, beat that! I was impressed with the standard of service throughout and never once had any cause for concern. My unguided tour was arranged perfectly, I only had to rock up knowing it was all in place.The bike was virtually brand new and well maintained, the accommodation chosen by Alison and Mike was superb and their expert advice as to a choice of route and itinerary made the trip. The roads were superb and designed for biking with a noticeable absence of traffic once I left Christchurch. Every day I found a road or scenery I thought I could not beat.

    Lee Scholes, UK

  • I found you guys at Paradise really friendly and helpful from the outset. Loads of information and the booking process was really easy. For someone who didn’t really know New Zealand or where to go, the Sat Nav was a godsend especially in larger towns finding my hotel locations. The route that you guys put together for me was just right, no particularly long days on the bike, 4 -5 hours a day was just about right, the Coromandel and National Park areas were particularly beautiful and some cracking roads... self guided motorcycle tour New Zealand. All in all a great holiday, you and Mike were a great help, in fact I was quite taken with how friendly and welcoming all of you Kiwi’s were.

    Rob Henderson, South Wales, GB

  • An excellent trip. Well sorted Alison! Great weather, great bike, great accommodation and superb roads - what more could a biker ask for? We found everyone really helpful and friendly and the scenery is marvelous. We’ll be back and next time we’ll be bringing our friends!
