Testimonials

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!!!

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.

David and Ruth's Adventures include:
Alaskan Splendors
New Zealand Top Down Tour
Call of the Wild (Africa)

Once you travel with Ayres Adventures there is no going back!

First class all the way! Awesome roads and amazing lodging. Staff brings the group together and makes everyone feel welcome and at ease. Gives us plenty of time on the bikes and off the bikes to enjoy our new friends. Does a great job dealing with the unexpected and last minute changes which are bound to happen with any event. Why go with any other group - once you travel with Ayres Adventures there is no going back - they are top notch. This is my 4th trip and saving my money for the next one.

John and Heidi's Adventures include:
New Zealand Top Down Adventure
Ushuaia and Antarctica

Exceptional Road Support and Tour Leadership

While searching on-line for motorcycle travel I came across the Ayres Adventures website. The site was far and away better than any other so I called Ron, took a chance, signed up for the South America 5 Flags Tour and never looked back. The trip was well run and well planned, offered reliable road support, experienced tour leaders and attracted fun, adventurous people.

The next trip I took was an Ayres Adventure to Africa and this past summer I rode with Ayres in Alaska and Yukon Territory. By now I knew I could count on Ayres for exceptional road support and tour leadership and I was not disappointed. The Alaska challenge for me was riding the Dalton Highway to Prudhoe Bay and our leaders, John and Ed, aside from the expected road support, offered moral support and encouragement. I couldn't have done that ride without them.

My challenge now will be deciding which Ayres Adventure to sign up for next.

Marilyn's Adventures include:
Prudhoe Bay Excursion
Alaska/Yukon Adventure
Southern Cross (Africa)
Call of the Wild (Africa)
South America 5 Flags
The Epic Journey - Moscow to Hong Kong

Words cannot express what an absolutely wonderful time I had



Ron, words cannot express what an absolutely wonderful time I had on this trip, for me the trip of a lifetime. John and Ed deserve an A+ for their professional, complete and friendly leadership of this motorcycle tour, as do you for hiring them in the first place.

Again, many thanks.

Bob's Adventures include:
Alaska & Yukon Adventure

The photos can't express exactly what I carry in my memory

The "Best of Alaska and Canada Adventure" was one of the most beautiful tours that we have ever done. The photos can't express exactly what I carry in my memory.

Thank you very much for everything. See you on the Africa tour, or perhaps on another USA tour.

Edison and Denise's Adventures include:
Escape to Ushuaia
BMW Motorrad Days (The Alps)
Best of Alaska and Canada
Call of the Wild Adventure (Africa)

If you want to go to Machu Picchu or Ushuaia, Ayres is your man.

If you 're considering a motorcycle trip to Brazil or anywhere else in South America, I'd certainly recommend Ayres Adventures to be your tour company. Ron is an experienced motorcyclist with a gift for taking care of the details. He genuinely wants you to have a good experience.

If you want to go to Machu Picchu or Ushuaia, Ayres is your man.

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:

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.

Paul and Lisa's Adventures include:
Call of the Wild
Prudhoe Bay Excursion
