Testimonials

This Alpine Adventure exceeded my best expectations in every regard.

I have just reviewed my pictures from this last week with you and the gang in Switzerland and Italy. Truly a remarkable experience to say the least.

This Alpine Adventure exceeded my best expectations in every regard. Congratulations on assembling a great team. We were certainly beneficiaries of their professionalism this week.

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.

We will definitely ride with Ayres again

My wife and I both rode with Ayres Adventures for the first time on their Prudhoe Bay/Alaska tour. We were both impressed with the organised structure of the tour; our tour guides were of an exceptionally high calibre.

We will definitely ride with Ayres again.

Robin and Pixie's Adventures include:
Prudhoe Bay Excursion

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.

This is my third tour with different tour operators and yours is the best so far!

Hi Ron,

Just a short note to say thanks for a great tour this month of Alaska and the Yukon. I would especially like to thank your tour guides Ed and Juergen who conducted themselves in a highly professional manner where nothing was a problem which greatly contributed to the tour.

The food and accommodations were excellent. I especially liked the gravel roads from Chicken to Dawson City and parts of the Dalton highway.

Thanks,

Mike

The most wonderful vacation we've ever had!

Before we left for New Zealand, we told ourselves it would be the trip of a lifetime...it was all that and ten times more. Every aspect of the entire experience far exceeded our wildest expectations.

The accommodations and the meals were fabulous, the rides amazing, and the people were the absolute best. It was without a doubt the most wonderful vacation we've ever had.
We will return to New Zealand some day, and we will ride with Ayres again--somewhere in the world.

You can't go wrong by booking a tour with them.

"Adventures" is an essential part of the Ayres company name. The professionalism of the tour guides is a strong point for this company. You can't go wrong by booking a tour with them.

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
Norwegian Viking Run

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

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!

Birgit and Manfred's Adventures include:
Norwegian Midnight Sun Adventure
Japan Cherry Blossom
