Testimonials

From communication to delivery, Ayres Adventures over delivered!

As a Harley-Davidson dealer, large event, and ride planner, I understand what detail and professionalism is required.  From communication to delivery, Ayres Adventures over delivered!  I always felt comfortable and was very pleased with the destinations and accommodations.  The guides took pride in the experience they were providing and were genuinely interested in you.  I am looking forward to my next ride with Ayres Adventures!

Trip of a Lifetime

When we signed up for our Alaskan Splendors adventure, David and I thought we would have a good time, see some wonderful things, and meet interesting people. We never expected that a short trip to Alaska would prove to be the trip of a lifetime, led by guides who not only set the bar, but exceeded it, for professionalism, technical expertise, patience and pure fun!

John Jesson had us all laughing together from the first day, and working together as a team by the second. Traveling with him was a pleasure from start to finish, and you may be sure that we’ll look for him on future Ayres Adventures.

I can't say enough good things about this experience!

This was my second Ayres Adventures tour, but definitely not my last. It will not be my last trip to Africa, either. The tour guides, John and Rob were as much a part of the group and the experience as everything and everyone else. The accommodations were first class and the food was incredible--they always pick the best of both. I think we were all surprised by South Africa and its peoples. The country is clean and the people are friendly. I can't say enough good things about this experience!

Getting a photo at the Arctic Circle sign and completing the Haul Road all the way to Deadhorse has been on my wish-list for some time

A hearty thank-you to you, and to your team, for all your efforts during the inaugural Prudhoe Bay Excursion. It was the most challenging ride I have ever been on.


Getting a photo at the Arctic Circle sign and completing the Haul Road all the way to Deadhorse has been on my wish-list for some time. Thanks to your professional and customer focused organization I was able to complete that goal.


I hope to see you, John, and Nuno on another one of your tours. Next time on a different continent. Best wishes to you as you travel the world.

First Class Adventures

Recently my wife Chris and I took an Ayres Adventure trip through South Africa (from Cape Town to Johannesburg). We have nothing but good things to say about the Ayres people, having done several "adventures" with them, in various parts of the world. They are first class, and go the extra mile to take good care of their customers. The Africa trip was exceptional in every respect. Ayres has a knack for picking exotic places to visit and stay. Kruger is breathtaking and Swaziland is really cool. We totally recommend anyone that wants to do an overseas adventure to strongly consider this opportunity.

A great time was had by all.

Our tour leader, Axel, was excellent. Not only did he check out the bikes each day and get us on the perfect roads but also he was the perfect leader and had an ability to gently convince 7 head strong, high energy clients to do the right thing all the time. A great time was had by all.

Cliff's Adventures include:

This Alpine Adventure exceeded my best expectations in every regard.

I have just reviewed my pictures from this last week with you and the gang in Switzerland and Italy. Truly a remarkable experience to say the least.

This Alpine Adventure exceeded my best expectations in every regard. Congratulations on assembling a great team. We were certainly beneficiaries of their professionalism this week.

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.

Prudhoe Bay was truly a bucket list event.

Ron – just a quick note to let you know what a great time the Prudhoe Bay Excursion was. Ed and Art did a great job and are to be commended for their professionalism. Everyone in the group was a pleasure to have on the trip – no 'flamers' which can make for a more challenging experience. Was truly a bucket list event.

Again, my thanks and hope to ride with you again soon.
