One of the best trips of our lives!
Wences, Bariloche to Ushuaia Motorcycle Tour in South America

Ayres Adventures took us on one of the best trips of our lives. With 13 friends we rode for a week through Patagonia. Ayres Adventures organized everything with professionalism, reacted really well to things that happened last minute that required decisions, change in logistics, etc and they made the trip fun and memorable for everybody. One of the best trips of our lives. Thank you!

Wences' Adventures include:
Bariloche to Ushuaia

We could not have asked for better leaders!
Mike & Sue McKenrick, Ayres Adventures

We could not have asked for better leaders and can't imagine a tour without them. We loved Jason's enthusiasm for the history and culture of his country and appreciated the way he shared it with us at our morning ride briefings; and we loved how John rounded it out with more contemporary details and highlights. They both went out of their way time and again to do all the little things that made the trip so very special! (Such as the "traditional" shot of heat, the ostrich egg breakfast, Trivia night, Pat's shirt, retrieving Cliff's phone, off-bike rides in the truck when the weather or traffic was not the best for passengers, the list goes on!!)

Mike and Sue's Adventures include: 
Triple S Harley-Davidson Southern Cross

You won't be disappointed!

"I've taken two Ayres Adventures motorcycle tours, two years apart, on two continents - they were both topnotch! I don't normally treat myself to the finest things, but Ayres Adventures did treat us to the finest things, and they did it humbly, with knowing smiles on their faces. They knew the next site, the next route, or the next hotel, was going to knock our socks off. And, sure enough, it did!

I encourage anyone considering an overseas motorcycle trip to choose Ayres Adventures as your host. You won't be disappointed"

We cannot think of a better way to see the world!
Rommens, Ayres Adventures Motorcycle Tour in New Zealand

Travelling with Ayres Adventures was stellar. It was a great opportunity to tour another country with absolutely no worries. Each day we were briefed as to what the day ahead would look like and off we went. The guides, Chris and Axel, were knowledgeable, organized and a pleasure to be with. We made many stops to look at beautiful sites or to take a break. It gave us an opportunity to meet new friends and share the love of motorcycle touring. We cannot think of a better way to see the world and would definitely travel with Ayres again.

We’re coming back with Ayres!

"It’s difficult to describe an Ayres Adventures tour without running out of superlatives. We have toured extensively in Europe, Morocco, Turkey, Mexico and Central America, and we know a superb tour when we see one.
Ayres Adventures’ seamless delivery speaks of painstaking behind-the-scenes preparation, down to the smallest detail. The trip to Machu Picchu was jaw-dropping, fantastic, amazing, unforgettable. Our wonderful guides spared no effort in ensuring that we all had a great time.

South America, we’re coming back with Ayres!"

How does Ayres Adventures keep coming up with these ideas?!

Recipe for an awesome motorcycle adventure: start with a destination that's on every motorcyclist's bucket list (Ushuaia, "The End of The World"), toss in a trip to Antarctica on a world-class cruise ship, and then finish it off with drop-dead gorgeous scenery in the southern Andes.

How does Ayres Adventures keep coming up with these ideas?!

I've been looking forward to this trip for 2 years, and yet, despite having been on other Ayres Adventures and knowing what an outstanding outfit they have, Ron, Barb, Mauricio, John, and Nuno again managed to exceed my expectations. So, for that matter, did Antarctica.

Well done, Ron and Ayres Adventures!

Donald Lapierre, Ayres Adventures

This was our third Ayres tour (Call of the Wild) and it clearly is the best motorcycle tour that money can buy. Claus and Jason were the best guides, very organized and very much understand people. Our accommodations were top notch and all planned extremely well.

Damn that was a fun trip!!!!

Ron - The trip rating - an A+. I repeat - an A+.

I don't even know what I paid for this thing......I know it was a chunk of change, and I know it was accurate billing from you folks, and I know I could go back and tally up what it all cost.....adding in your fees, the ATM withdrawals, AmEx/Visa charges, etc.....but truth is - whatEVER it cost me, it was totally worth it. And - even with the cost of the new BMW I'm gonna HAVE to buy now that I'm back home (the local BMW sales rep should pay you a commission!)....the value I got, the money spent vs. the experiences/memories - definitely worth it!

This trip had a little of everything and it makes me want to go back to Africa

My son and I rode the Ayres Adventures Machu Picchu trip over a year ago and we had so much fun I decided to go on my own trip to South Africa, at Ron Ayres suggestion.  I'm a fair weather, slower rider, the type that likes to look at scenery, stop often, and avoid highways, so after Machu Picchu which really challenged me, I asked Ron for something more suitable to my style, and the Southern Cross trip fit my needs perfectly.

It had everything: beautiful scenery that included seascapes and inland hills and valleys, cultural offerings by the Zulus in S. Africa and the Bsuto in Swaziland, game reserves and Kruger National Park where the big animals walked in their natural habitat, and most touching to me, visiting an orphanage and school where we met some children and which offered us the opportunity to give back a little by connecting them with possible resources in the USA.

The accommodations and the food were always the best, especially Otter's Den, where we were treated like family by the hosts and where I felt like I might hear Tarzan yelling as he swung from branch to branch.

John Jesson and Chris Carey offered wonderful support as group leaders, and they made my experience work, especially since I ride slower than most and I was traveling alone. It's not easy to satisfy everyone with different needs, but they did. The planned visits included a snake reserve, elephant farm, balloon ride, and could have included the highest bungee jump in the world. This trip had a little of everything and it makes me want to go back to Africa.

We have been bitten by the "Ayres Bug", so we will certainly be on another trip very soon!

I have wanted to write and thank you and Barbara for a truly wonderful vacation.

What makes a great vacation? Superb food, outstanding accommodations, well planned itineraries, new friends who share the same values, new challenges every day all with a sense of security knowing that there is great team (Ayres) behind you. The net result is a truly fun time and a remarkable memory and to Lori and I who went on the Southern Cross trip all this came to pass and more. We have been bitten by the "Ayres Bug "so we will certainly be on another trip very soon.

Thanks to all your wonderful team: John constantly keeping the group's fun in mind and taking care of every little detail and with a great sense of humour, ED who was such a gentleman and pleasure to travel with. Lori especially spent a lot of time with him and talks highly about his thoughtfulness and kind spirit.

I can also say that to anyone who is thinking of taking an Ayres trip but whose companion is not a lover of the "Two Wheels" mode of transport, the companion vehicle is a great way for couples to share some truly memorable trips to some very unique and interesting places. These trips allow a multitude of dinner stories recounting the fun.

Thanks again.
