Thank you again for another wonderful tour!
Birgit and Manfred, Testimonials, Ayres Adventures

Thank you again for another wonderful tour! We always wanted to go to the North Cape, with all the planning you did for us, you made this trip a great experience. You found nice twisties with spectacular views, stunning landscapes and outrageous bridges from one island to another, which made our hearts beat faster.

Our tour leaders had a lot of inside information on special routes, which were not crowded at all. GREAT RIDING!

What an Experience!

I am now back in the land of reality, but what an experience I have had. I think the preparation and planning of the tour was of such a high standard, the people great company and that resulted in the whole trip being so enjoyable.

The other really great thing was the feeling that I could ride forever, unfortunately appointments mean that you have to turn back.

John many thanks for your excellent leadership and professionalism throughout.

This is our first trip with Ayres & it will NOT be our last!

This is our first trip with Ayres & it will NOT be our last! It was everything we expected; great riding, great people and an experience we will always treasure. The Emprie of the Incas tour is not for the faint of heart, back or butt. It is a "rider's" tour with lots of miles in a variety of conditions. Argentina, Chile and Peru are incredible countries with open, friendly people & beautiful landscapes. Steve Phillips and Art Tarian were great, sharing their knowledge & getting us through.

Linda Jannette

Empire of the Incas is a riders trip. Lots of miles of unending curves and elevation changes. Our trip leaders, Steve Phillips and Art Tarian did a great job of leading us through crazy traffic , 16,000 foot mountain passes and the always frustrating border crossings. If you of the mind set to visit and enjoy some of South Americas tourist highlights while getting a full dose of good motorcycle riding this is the tour for you.

So I'm already planning my next Ayres tour!

The Ayres Adventures tour to Norway last June was the trip of a lifetime! The tour was well organized and very professional. The tour guides did an awesome job from start to finish. The actual route and our accommodations were stellar. It was too bad that it all ended...I'm sure I could have gone a few more months!
So I'm already planning my next Ayres tour!

I can't say enough about it...

Hi Ron, Shirley, John, Rob, Thank you for everything. I did not have time to send an email before to thank all of you. The trip was great. I can't say enough about it. THANKS!!!

Steven's Adventures include:
African Panorama Adventure

What a Ride!

What a ride! The IBA (Iron Butt Association) Ushuaia trip attracted me because of the opportunity to ride with like minded individuals who like doing the miles, and I was not disappointed. Challenging conditions like the Patagonian winds and the gravel roads of Chile were taken in stride by this bunch, and we all looked forward to great accommodations and good company at the end of every day.

My personal highlights were chasing Mike Kneebone and Nuno Leotte on the twisty pavement to the Perito Moreno glacier and the 1100 km day riding from Ushuaia to Torres del Paine through some of the finest scenery in the world.

I'll be back for more.

Rick's Adventures include:

I’ve traveled many countries of the world via motorcycle but this tour is special!
Omaha Beach, Ayres Adventures

If you haven't toured Alsace Loraine, Normandy, WW I battlefields and then the North Sea coast, you haven't toured Europe. From Omaha Beach to the ancient cities along the North Coast up to Denmark, this is a tour that is special. Most of the riding is on back country lanes through spectacular country scenery or on the dykes of Holland or in picturesque villages. I've traveled many countries of the world via motorcycle but this tour is special.

Daniel's Adventures include:
Dutch Treat Adventure (now named Normandy and the North Sea)

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.

Joe and Mary Penney, Testimonial, Motorcycle tour Dramatic Dolomites in the Alps, Italy and Switzerland

What an experience! Traveling through Germany, Austria and northern Italy while enjoying a variety of breathtaking landscapes was truly amazing. Our guide was fantastic, our group was composed of wonderful people and our overall expectations were exceeded. What my wife and I thought would be a once in a lifetime trip has opened our eyes to the joys of motorcycling in remarkable locations so much so that we are now planning on continuing the adventure in the future with Ayres Adventures as our guide.
