    "Hi John... We just wanted to write to tell you what an amazing experience we had and it was because of 2 things... Your beautiful country...and YOU!!! We could not have asked for anything better. It was so well layed many little details thought of and over the top service you provided. I can't thank you enough for making Joe's birthday experience the one I had hoped for. "


    "now Joe...."

    "John, well done! I so enjoyed all of the B&Bs, side hikes and COFFEE spots. The bike was perfect and flawless to travel on. I hope to stay in touch and we have a few amazing photos that may work for you. Picton was not really in our plans.. but we enjoyed a hike around the sound and the twisty road of the Charlotte sound. please let's debrief sometime on a skype call. All the best,"

    "Ian and all, I want to thank you for the trip of a lifetime. I have many cherished sites stored in my mind that I can return to and find peace amidst the hectic lifestyle we can't seem to escape here in America. I have been telling people about the wonderful tour you put together for us. My cousin is going to plan a trip to NZ but he and his wife would not be interested in riding the motorcycles. I am assuming you can provide a similar tour with car rentals? Again, thanks so much for the wonderful accommodations and tips regarding what to see and where to stop for a midday treat. The experience was incredible. God bless your business,"

    "We have just hired two bikes from GoTourNZ. In all my dealings, I found John to be extremely professional and he’s one of those people who always respond to emails and phone messages immediately, an absolute pleasure to deal with. The condition of the bikes was good and both bikes ran perfectly on our 2,000 kilometers trip, neither missed a beat and we experienced no issues whatsoever. Scott Baker has obviously maintained the bikes very well. I would unreservedly recommend Go Tour NZ to anyone considering renting a bike or doing a tour with them. Thanks to John and Scott for a truly memorable trip around South Island."

    "Thanks again Ian for a wonderful tour. The experience in New Zealand was as in the advertisement. I especially appreciated your thoughtful selection of rides that showed off the South Island and your choice of the first rate B&Bs at every stop. The side trips you recommended were also right on target. It was obvious that you and John put a lot of time into planning the tours, which produced a memorable experience for the riders. I will favorably recommend Go Tour NZ to all riders I know."
