Motorcycle Tours in Europe

There is no way to travel by motorcycle in Europe without being awestruck. No other place in the world is quite like it. Touring by motorcycle permits you to experience the sights, sounds, smells, and other sensations in a most seductive way. It’s as though Europe was designed to provide motorcyclists with an incredible playground.

Although The Old World has an extraordinary past, the continent leads the world in fashion, art, music, architecture and design. Motorcyclists will have the opportunity to enjoy all of this, but in addition they will enjoy the breathtaking landscapes and stunning scenery.

Europe is synonymous with diversity. Europe today consists of 47 independent countries ranging in size from Russia, with some 140 million people, to Liechtenstein with a population of only 35,000. Many European countries consist of multiple regions and cultures. Diversity extends to the multitude of languages spoken in Europe. Most countries have their own language and many have several languages. There are also dialects, and some smaller languages that don’t make the list of official languages. In many countries, young people speak English, but you’ll often meet people who don’t speak or understand English at all.

In Europe, the landscape in places just a couple of kilometers apart can be completely different, and cultural history manifests itself everywhere. From the fjords of Norway to the Swiss Alps to the Pyrenees that divide Spain and France, to the Moorish palaces of Andalucía, to the ancient ruins in Greece and Turkey, it just never stops. Many riders, especially upon touring Europe for the first time, speak of “sensory overload” and literally must stop to permit a particularly stunning experience to set in.

Our native European tour leaders have carefully assembled a portfolio of motorcycle tours that range from an 8-day Indian Summer in the Alps Adventure to our 34-day, 14-country Munich and Istanbul motorcycle odyssey. More than any place in the world, Europe is the venue where our policy against limited choice “set menus” and budget-priced “tourist hotels” is most appreciated.

Be prepared for our European Adventures to exceed your highest expectations. Review the testimonials on our website and you’ll begin to get an appreciation for the excitement you’ll experience on your European motorcycling adventure with us.

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.
