Guided New Zealand Motorcycle Tours
New Zealand is more than just a country, it’s a sanctuary: a place of easy-going people and beautiful scenery. When you ride here you will experience all our must-do spots – from crystal clear rivers to alpine lakes and golden sand beaches.
You’ll also get to meet a bunch of real deal Kiwis, we don’t take ourselves too seriously, unless it involves rugby, cool cars or drinking beer…
Father and son Mark and Ben Van Leeuwarden are your guides for each tour. They ensure that you always feel at home and have a laugh each day.
So, your bucket list ride awaits.

Our Team in NZ
Father and son Mark and Ben Van Leeuwarden are born and bred kiwis. They bring their own flare to each tour, and provide carefully crafted itineraries, ‘real kiwi’ experiences and occasionally some good humour.
Mark comes from a private investigation background while Ben used to work in advertising around the world.
The pair have hosted many New Zealand group tours, music events, and have been a part of New Zealand’s supermoto racing community for many years.
Their existing relationships give you special access to the New Zealand many tourists don’t get to see.
