What people have said from past events.

  • “Richard and I went on Bert's mainland tour some years ago. We had a bike each, Richy on a Triumph Trophy, and me on a Suzuki 650. Although I was the only lady rider, I kept up with the boys (mostly) and have to say the roads are built for motorbikes, smooth and full of corners, with breathtaking scenery. Accommodation was top notch, with the highlight the bach at Punakaiki on the Westcoast, with the boys risking the rising water and swell to bring us back a bucket full of mussels, cooked on the deck overlooking the ocean. Bring a larger size in your jeans, you will need it, the food is amazing. A most amazing holiday that we intend to do again.”

You itinerary was perfect with just the right amount of riding and sightseeing per day so well done for that. I saw some fantastic views and interesting places on my journey and the accommodation you booked excellent and well located to everything. To top it all the weather was sunny everyday so what more could anyone ask for? Sandra Claimed it was the trip of a lifetime, based on that we will be back... ”
