Motorcycle Tour in New Zealand, Ayres Adventures, Review

The tour leaders were way more than I ever anticipated. They are thorough, knowledgeable about motorcycling and the area and they both have really good people skills. I saw them accommodate every person on the tour in a unique way for each person and they made it look easy ...which I know is not the case.

Bravo to these two guys and to you for hiring and training them. They are what made this tour so exceptional.

The ride scenery in New Zealand was unbelievable and fantastic and the dinners were first class.
Thank you, thank you for a trip of a lifetime that exceeded my highest expectations.
