Testimonials

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.

If you’ve never been to Africa, Ayres Heart of Africa tour is certainly a trip of a lifetime
Paul McClain and Lisa Mahaffey

If you’ve never been to Africa, Ayres Heart of Africa tour is certainly a trip of a lifetime. A word of caution: You will want to return to Africa again and again, once you’ve experienced the wonderful people, riding, wildlife and culture.

The highlight of the trip was spending time with the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda. What a privilege to be a few feet from these magnificent animals. To be able to view, interact and take pictures of a gorilla family where the elder Silverback watches over his group is breathtaking. The young ones are very curious and may very well come right up to you for a closer look.

The safaris in the Serengeti region include the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorogoro Conservation Area. From the comfort of your private game vehicle, you’ll view and learn about the abundant wildlife.

The great riding in East Africa contains a smorgasbord of roads that carve through pristine mountain sweepers to rural villages where speed bumps are common to large cities where few road rules exist or enforced, and mix in some unpaved patches to keep things interesting and a lot of fun.

The people you’ll see and interact with are amazing, especially the children who are sweet and beautiful. The gorgeous, colorful clothes locals wear will amaze you. Beware, the motorcycles will attract a LOT of attention from the locals. We all felt like royalty, as huge crowds of locals stare, question you about the bike and snap pictures with their cell phones.

Our tour leaders were outstanding with their attention to details, their wealth of knowledge on the history of the areas and current events, and their willingness to go the extra mile. They worked tirelessly to make the tour an unforgettable experience.

Ayres Adventures will not disappoint with the premium accommodations, food and activities you’ll encounter. They simply are the best.

This trip was set up to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I hope it was not the only time I will visit.

"My lasting impressions of South Africa, Botswana and Namibia are overwhelmingly positive. This trip was set up to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I hope it was not the only time I will visit." - Corey Hinderstein

"To encapsulate the experience of traveling by Ayres, I compare it to traveling with a wealthy and experienced older brother, one committed to showing you a great time. Once you’ve joined them, you don’t have to worry about a thing beyond paying for a bit of beer or wine on occasion." - Chase Hinderstein

Corey submitted an article about her trip with us. The article was published in Between the Spokes - the magazine of the BMW Club. Click here to see Corey's article.

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.

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"

Indian Summer in the Alps tour highly recommended!

Indian Summer in the Alps tour highly recommended. Be prepared for a wide range of temperatures and paved road switch back riding. Bike selection, tour guides, accommodations, and evening group meals and comradery are top rate. Thank You for offering and providing a bucket-list experience.

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!

Beverly's Adventures include:
Iron Butt Escape to Ushuaia Adventure

My husband loves motorcycle touring and now I must admit I have grown to love it too!

The camaraderie of our tour group, good natured people, well cared for roads, twistie turns and gorgeous scenery enhanced by beautiful silver ferns, crystal blue lakes, and of course lots of sheep!

These all describe the memories I will cherish when I think about New Zealand. My husband loves motorcycle touring and now I must admit I have grown to love it too! ...Susan"
