Testimonials

Our trip was beautifully planned.

Our first Ayres Adventure was everything we'd hoped and more. John is extraordinary at what he does. We really appreciated his sincere caring, competency and sense of fun. When asked where we were headed that day by a waitress at a coffee stop, a fellow rider said, "I'm not sure. It's like going on vacation with Dad. We just follow him and everything's taken care of, everything's wonderful."

Our trip was beautifully planned. Greg and I enjoyed the variety of accommodations, from a luxury waterfront hotel, to a country lodge, to a 100 yr. old farmstead, to a tented tree house, and especially the opportunity to visit the Zulu school and AIDS orphanage. We felt that we learned a lot about the country, rather than just passing through it. We're looking forward to future Ayres Adventures. South Africa definitely captured our hearts.

It was my first group motorcycle tour, but it will not be my last

It was an exciting, quick paced ride with an entertaining group. The leaders were always available offering encouragement, riding tips or just reliving the day over dinner.

And then of course there are the bragging rights of riding the world with Mike Kneebone and Ron Ayres.

It was my first group motorcycle tour but will not be my last!

Beverly's Adventures include:
IBA (Iron Butt Association) Ushuaia Tour
Africa Panorama Tour

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

This was our third Ayres tour and it clearly is the best motorcycle tour that money can buy
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.

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
Antarctica Adventure

I can highly recommend Ayres Adventures for any motorcycle adventure
Dietrich Look, Ayres Adventures

The "Call of the Wild" tour offered tremendous value for the money. It gave access to high end lodges such as Sediba which one would normally not necessarily consider. The wildlife sightings were spectacular. Game drives were offered twice a day when at game reserves. The local guides were outstanding and offered a ton of information. The opportunity to visit Victoria Falls was great and a must when in that area. The tour guides Claus and Jason made the tour enjoyable. They are professionals and know their stuff. Especially to have Jason, a South African on the tour gave us so much good insight into the country's history, current affairs etc. Jason's knowledge of the wildlife was especially helpful. Special thanks to Jason for helping me in refreshing my Afrikaans. I felt in good hands with both Claus and Jason. The good chemistry among the tour participants also helped to make this trip an unreserved success. I can highly recommend Ayres Adventures for any motorcycle adventure. Their organization and attention to detail is second to none. I am looking forward to the next tour.

The trip of a lifetime
Cecil Broome, Ayres Adventures

My bucket list motorcycle tour to the European Alps with Ayres Adventures was indeed the trip of a lifetime. Great riding, great food, great hotel and great fun.

Cecil's Adventures include:
Switchback Challenge - The Alps
Africa Panorama Tour

I can’t imagine how the tour route or hotels could have been improved.

Every moment associated with the tour was enjoyable, from planning and preparation to my return home and sharing photos and stories with friends and family. I was very happy when I received the materials a month before the start of the tour; they really created a great impression.

I expected pretty vistas, but there is no way to prepare you for post card views around every corner. I can’t imagine how the tour route or hotels could have been improved.

I look forward to my next Ayres Adventure."

Bill enjoyed the Portugal, Spain and Morocco Adventure
