Why you should go on a Guided Tour of your own country. As a result of the Covid 19 Pandemic international travel for many is now off the menu. Now more than ever is a fantastic time to travel your own country (when permitted to do so). Not only will there be fewer tourists about but you will be supporting local businesses who are desperately struggling to keep staff and their businesses afloat.

But I can do that on my own, I hear you say. Yes you can - but there are many benefits to taking an organised group tour. Firstly you’ll be benefiting from the experience of your guide who has taken great care to design an exciting and enjoyable route along roads you may not have discovered. You’ll get to make new friends and share tall stories along the way. You’ll get full days of superb riding, enjoy some great meals and at night relax in some of NZ’s finest boutique hotels & lodges. Your skill as a rider will also benefit from the shared experience and exhilaration that riding in a small group provides. And truthfully how much of your own country have you really seen? The saying 'Don't leave home till you've seen the country' is so true. We all live in amazing places - go out and discover it.

Even if you have your own bike is it suitable for riding long hours in the saddle? Can your partner spend 5-6 hours on the back? Many road bikes are just not designed for touring or have a comfortable seat for a pillion. They're often great for commuting to and from work and for filtering through traffic but just not so good when it comes to hitting the open road. Our bikes are touring maestros and offer superb comfort, style and performance. All our bikes are equipped with Givi hard luggage, and your pillion will appreciate the comfy seat and the backrest provided by the top box.
