Thanks for making our 10th wedding anniversary vacation a memorable one.

Ron,

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for allowing us to be part of the tour, and also the opportunity to experience a wonderful bike trip. I proudly wear my Stelvio Pass T-shirt.

The choice of hotels and restaurants were great, exceeding our expectations many times. Mauricio's  and John's ability to make everyone comfortable and part of the team is amazing. Most importantly, we made good friends and we are proud to be associated with your company.

Thanks again for making our 10th wedding anniversary vacation a memorable one.

The cruise to Antarctica will be an unforgettable time in our lives

Heidi and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the recent Escape to Antarctica/Ushuaia tour. This was our first tour of this sort and any expectations we had were met and far exceeded. Your tour staff was excellent and helpful, as well as our traveling companions.

The cruise to Antarctica will be an unforgettable time in our lives. The ship and crew were all first class. The sights and wildlife in Antarctica are indescribable, and need to be experienced first hand to grasp the magnitude of the seventh continent. Walking amongst the penguins and the seals was a kick. This is an experience enjoyed by few, due to the limited numbers allowed to this truly wild place.

We thank you for the opportunity of a life time to have joined you on this tour, and hopefully we can join another Ayres Adventures tour in the future.

Bob and Heidi's Adventures include:
Ushuaia and Antarctica

We can't wait for the next one!

It’s been less than two weeks since we completed the African trilogy and I’ve wondered how I’d ever find the words to describe our feelings about this extraordinary adventure. When the October 2008 Waypoints Bulletin arrived, it gave me the perfect start. As one who had to “overcome initial apprehension about travel to the ‘Dark Continent’,” I can honestly say that none of my fears materialized. Nick and I fell in love with Africa. From day one and throughout nearly seven weeks of travel, Africa grabbed us with the warmth of the people, the cultural diversity, the mind-blowing wildlife, and the spectacular scenery. Ayres Adventures delivered in its usual superb fashion on each and every day of the three distinctly unique tours.

The “Southern Cross” could be described as “Africa 101”, offering a taste of everything—from the busy, upscale Capetown waterfront to the luxury of L’Agulhas Country Lodge, from the cultural experiences in Eshowe and Shakaland to the overall African immersion at Otter’s Den. Leaving Johannesburg at the start of the second tour, we mistakenly thought ourselves steeped in a sense of place. Then came Shibula Lodge and we realized that a very different African adventure was just beginning. The “Call of the Wild” is truly all about the wildlife—watching the elephants crossing the river in Chobe can only be termed a life-altering event. As for Namibia, we’ll never forget the sands—towering over us on the dunes and shifting under our tires as we crossed the Kalahari! But the challenge was thrilling and the landscapes incomparable.

We’ll always be grateful to the Ayres “family” with whom we shared this amazing experience. So while "doing 'Africa Ayres Adventures Style'" may be addictive, I think it’s more accurate to say that we’ve simply become addicted to Ayres Adventures. We can’t wait for the next one!

Ayres Adventure Switchback Challenge was amazing
Erica Danek, motorcycle tour testimonials, Ayres Adventures

Ayres Adventure Switchback Challenge was amazing. If you are the type of rider who measures the chicken strip before and after your ride (like my husband does) then this tour is for you. We spent most of the time leaning than we did riding up right. This was especially challenging for me because I was riding two up and in charge of the filming while trying to hold on. Axel was not only entertaining but a wealth of knowledge when it came to the bikes, riding and safety. He made sure to include me in the decision making process even though I was the only female and pillion. He went above and beyond to make me feel like a real life princess on my birthday. The little touches did not go unnoticed. Thank you Axel and thank you Ayres for the trip of a life time.
