"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!
The planning that these guys put into the route, the accommodation and even the coffee stops, meant that we experienced the very best that NZ has to offer in the way of scenery and incredible roads, before luxuriating in the comfort of the next 5-star overnight stopover.
Mike and Alison’s knowledge and experience of all the overnight stops and en-route attractions were complemented by their complete commitment to making the arrangements ‘join-up’ for a stress-free, unforgettable holiday experience.
This included booking all the excursions we chose, in addition to ferrying us to-and-from the venues in the luxury, air-conditioned minibus. Kath enjoyed the minibus so much that she took a couple of days off riding pillion! Marks out of ten? …….. Can’t be less than ten!
Thanks again Alison & Mike – the memories will last a life-time … but I’m still working on returning to remind myself, in person, just how good a Paradise Tours holiday is!"

"Paradise Motorcycle Tours NZ testimonial"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 were a unique group and Alison did lots of research to make our trip the best ever. We will never forget the amazing places, exceptional roads, and warm, wonderful memories of this ’trip of a lifetime’.
We really are working hard to be able to return and travel with Alison and Mike again."
Dale, Ride Nude Zealand, USA
"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.
Accommodation was just as good as the bikes and the people we met we wanted to stay in touch with all of them. This is roughing it Five Star.
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!"
Jim & Dot, UK
"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. If you get the opportunity, please mail me some of your brochures and business cards, as soon as spring breaks out, I'll be catching up with my riding pals, the one's with whom I've already spoken are green with envy. I love it!!
Now that I've mastered driving on the "wrong side of the road", I will endeavour to return and rent a bike for 5 or 6 weeks just to wander around the entire country on my own. Best wishes to everyone, thanks once again for all the wonderful times, will be in touch soon."
Ray Milek, USA
"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, as it meant I didn’t need to ride with panniers, or keep extra gear with me - a luxury.
The hotels were well chosen and very good quality. I had a great time, the trip was excellent value and I have memories to last a lifetime."
Juliet, Reading, UK
"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 b'n b's were great..our hosts were such lovely people...those 10 days were easily one of the best in our lives."
Indu & Sudhakar, Singapore
"Graham and I had a fantastic holiday in November with Paradise. 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! Thanks so much to Mike and Alison for making this a fantastic time. We are saving to go back!"
Sandra Coombs and Graham Fisher
"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. Thanks Trevor and see you again next year."
Irene and Steve, NZ
"First 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. You made the whole experience easy and completely enjoyable!
The itinerary was well planned with stops in all the scenic locations! The hotels were first class with wonderful surprises! Who can forget dinner at the Larnach Castle in our own private dining room? The trip to Milford Sound was breathtaking and dinner overlooking Queenstown was both delicious and visually exciting! Everyone was so welcoming and helpful in all our excursions.
Did I mention great food and wine?! We are pleased and appreciative of all you did to make our vacation perfect. We know we didn't get to see everything; our only regret is that we didn't have more time to experience more of your beautiful islands. Thanks again and we hope to see you again one day soon."
Beemer Banditos, USA
"Just got back from a 10 day tour of the south island. Mike and Alison made everything easy and provided exceptional customer service. The accomodation 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.
I cannot thank Mike and Alison enough for all their help."
Andrew Niven, UK
" We have just got back to Tasmania after a 12 day adventure of the South Island and feel it appropriate to thank Mike and Alison for their very professional attitude and friendly nature that has made our adventure something we will never forget. We had breakfast with them on our first day and it felt as though we had known them for years. They worked closely with us over several months to determine what would be the best itinerary for us to see as much of this beautiful island as possible.
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 prebooked. Mike had also preprogrammed 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, prebooked helicopter flight over the glaciers and suggestions in a printed itinerary of places to eat and sight see. We have no hesitation in recommending Paradise Motorcycle Tours to anyone as our experience with them from first contact right through to when we left the island has been nothing short of outstanding."
Tim and Sharon Clark, Tasmania
"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 noticable absence of traffic once I left Christchurch. Every day I found a road or scenery I thought I could not beat. I would definitely recommend Paradise Motorcycle Tours and plan to use them again in the future."
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 ZealandAll 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. Recommend Paradise to anyone who wants to have this kind of holiday (just don’t forget the waterproofs)."
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 marvellous. We’ll be back and next time we’ll be bringing our friends!"
Martin & Sue Corbet, UK
"Where do we start? How about a huge thank you from all of us? Thanks for the bikes, the service, the spectacular country side, and the engineering on the best and most consistent roads I’ve ever ridden!! Lidwina and I have already started to plan for next year. Finally... the Sprint was fabulous! "
Tony and Lidwina, Australia
"A great "Quick Tour" of the South Island on the Sprint GT. Christchurch - Kaikoura, Picton - Nelson, Franz Josef - Wanaka, Queenstown - Milford Sound, Queenstown - Christchurch - in 4.5 days. Sprint is ideal for "swift passage" touring and for a first timer in NZ (New Zealand), those roads are awesome (when they are not being re metalled)... and only one ticket! Friendly service from all at Eliza’s Manor. Thanks to Mike and Alison for making it all so easy."
Dave Marsh, UK
"I called all over Auckland trying to find a good bike hire. Mike at Paradise Motorcycle Tours was by far the best and most knowledgeable person I could find. Bikes were excellent, equipment was top notch and the riding was incredible. Mike guided us to some of the best roads in New Zealand. If anyone from the U.S. is considering some riding outside the States, you could scarcely do better than Paradise. I hope to be back again for a longer trip myself. Mike prides himself on customer service, and it shows. Everything from start to finish was done to give us the best time possible." Curtis, Des Moines USA
"What an amazing experience! My friend and I came in late on a Saturday and had about 8hrs on a Sunday to ride, and Mike took care of that! The customer service was amazing. They accommodated each need that we had, being travelers in from the US. The ride was fantastic. We rode the Coromandel Peninsula in a day, and it was the best ride I could have imagined for the time we had. The bikes and equipment were top notch, and the stops were breathtaking. I would recommend Paradise MC Tours to anyone, and hope to return to do it all again. Thanks Mike."
Ryan, Des Moines USA
"I have had an absolutely fantastic week doing 2,500 km. on the BMW 1200RT. We followed your suggested route most of the way and every day provided both beautiful scenery and amazing roads to enjoy the power and handling ability of the RT. Although I was initially afraid that the RT would be too heavy and boring for the small winding roads, it turned out to be the perfect bike for me. It handled very nicely and I didn’t have any physical discomforts during the tour, even though we did between 400 and 500 km. every day.
It was a big plus that both bike and gear was of high quality and in excellent condition. It kind of made the good experience complete. Finally I would like to complement you on the excellent and very personal service that you and your wife provided me before and after the trip. Thank you very much for organizing this experience and I hope that you will be able to organize a similar experience for me next year on the South Island."
Jesper Elkjaer, Denmark
"Mike & Alison at Paradise Motorcycle Tours are phenomenal. I worked with them for a couple of months on organizing my solo adventure across NZ. They provided me with the highest level of customer service and were extraordinarily patient with all my questions and concerns. They did everything they could to ensure my holiday was a success. I had a great time riding for 12 days in both the north & south island.
The value they provided in service, support and product was unmatched by any other company I had initially contacted. They far exceeded expectations and went out of their way for me.
I cannot recommend a better company to work with whether you are looking to simply hire a bike, organize an independent tour or go on a group ride. They get it...ALL! If you are thinking about riding in NZ, go wth Paradise."
Grace Preston, USA
"Auckland to Christ Church the scenic route 1430km's of the most Amazing roads & scenery we have ever experienced. We would recommend hiring a bike and touring NZ to anyone.. Paradise Motorcycles are the BOMB !!!!!"
