Chris & Ngoc organised everything , flights , home stays , hotels, food. Ngoc was fantastic at explaining everything about Vietnam, food,culture, history, traditions, he was a fountain of knowledge and very interesting , as for Que our upfront tour leader “I adopted him as my third son” was fantastic and I really enjoyed riding with him . As for the rest of the group they were brilliant to travel with and hope friends for ever.Don’t think about doing this tour just get it booked “you will LOVE it , great value, fantastic experience.

  • Well where to start this tour was suggested by my brother in law and I’m so glad of that It was Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh Chris who runs the tour sorts it all out for you even the flights were arranged by him Met everyone at airport and glad to say we had a great group. On arriving Ngoc the tour guide then took over and he was amazing we were waited on. He taught us lots of history during the tour too Our leader at the front of the tour was a young man called Quê and he too was fantastic looking after us alongside Ngoc they just couldn’t do enough for us This was our first tour and it was the best thing we’ve ever done and will certainly be doing more Couldn’t recommend guided tours highly enough what a fantastic team Keep at it Chris, Ngoc and Quê love Sheila and Mark 🏍🏍🏍

  • 5 star review  Went on my first tour Vosges 5 day tour, I have only been biking for just over a year and wasn't quite sure what to expect, went with a friend of mine, but great to meet a whole bunch of new bikers. Had a fantastic time, loved it, had a mixture of weather and the B500 was foggy, but that just means I'll have to go back and ride it again. It was great experience, Tour Leader Snips, was an excellent guide and looked after us well. Made some new friends and am now looking at which tour with GMT. Thanks Peter

DAY 1 & 2 - Calais to Germany

Leaving the Eurotunnel our journey begins in France. We head for Luxembourg for our first overnight stop. Our second night stop over is in Munich in Germany. A brief stop with an evening free to stroll around town, eat out or just relax and unwind in your hotel before day 3 when we ride through Austria and along one of the most famous roads in all of Europe, the Grossglockner Pass (weather permitting).

DAY 3 - Grossglockner Pass Austria

THE MOTHER OF ALL BIKING ROADS
If you haven’t heard of Grossglockner Pass, then look it up. It is stunning, mesmerizing and breathtaking. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is the highest surfaced mountain pass road in Austria. It connects Bruck in the state of Salzburg with Heiligenblut in Carinthia via Fuscher Törl and Hochtor Pass at 2,504 m. It is a toll road but it is worth every single Euro!
A memory that will last for a long time!

We stay just inside the border this evening in Austria, which, lines us up very nicely for tomorrows scenic day

DAY 4 - SLOVENIA

A DAY FULL OF SCENIC INSPIRATION
Today we head into the Julian Mountains on the Austrian and Slovenian border as well as take the opportunity to ride through Vršič Pass. The Vršič Pass, with an elevation of 1,611 metres, is a high mountain pass across the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. It is the highest pass in Slovenia, as well as the highest in the Eastern Julian Alps. A day truly worth looking forward to!
We also stop briefly to admire Bled Castle on Lake Bled and we make time to capture memories and photos of the surrounding beauty, namely the Grintovec and Karawanks Mountains.
This, in addition to some spectacular roads, you’ll be sure to have a breathtaking day. We stay the night in a hotel in the woods accessible by a 3 mile long compacted dirt road.

DAY 5 - CAVES & WATERFALLS

In the morning there is an option to visit Postojna Cave where we will have the opportunity to have lunch after in the restaurant, relax for a while and enjoy a tour of the beautiful cave (caves tours must be booked in advance). This is optional and is usually situated just a few miles from the previous nights hotel stay.

In the afternoon we ride to Plitvice Lakes National Park, where we stay the evening after exploring the magnificent waterfalls. It is a longer day today and a lot is packed in but the conversations over dinner will be worth it!

6

DAY 6 - The Adriatic Coast

We continue our journey south through the Zadar County, hugging the Bosnian border and pass through valleys with a brief stop a the Visovac Monastery eventually heading west back towards the coast. We follow the coast road around to Split and rest for the evening in our hotel

7

DAY 7 - Rest Day

Today is as relaxing or as adventurous as you wish, spend the day in the town of Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, it is known for its beaches and the fortress like complex at its centre, Diocletian’s Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are shops, bars, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses.

There are many small islands in the bay of Spit which you can also explore. Or head for the stunning seaside port of Omis, a beautiful small town between Makarska and Split

Hvar is a city and port on the island of Hvar, part of Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia. The municipality has a population of 4,251 while the city itself is inhabited by 3,771 people, making it the largest settlement on the island of Hvar.

Šolta is an island in Croatia. It is situated in the Adriatic Sea in the central Dalmatian archipelago, west of the island of Brač, south of Split and east of the Drvenik islands, Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli

Or why not take the opportunity to go river rafting, an amazing experience. (let us know if you wish to participate in this activity so we can book in advance) https://raftrek.com/tour/cetina-river-rafting/

DAY 8 - Adriatic Coast Road - D8

When riders talk about Croatia and Slovenia they always mention the Dalmation Coast road and that is exactly what is on the menu today! We head north on a 250 mile journey, a relatively long day with plenty of miles and lots of curvy roads alongside beautiful turquoise waters edges (some are motorway and dual carriageway) but the best bit is riding alongside the coast. The road is an abundance of twists, turns, straights and moderate hairpins all with a stunning view. We rest for the evening in Koper

9

DAY 9 - DOLOMITES

From Koper in Slovenia we head through Italy and continue through the northern Italian Alps and ride across the Italian Dolomites as we go. We finally cross back over into Austria, through Innsbruck and back into Germany, resting for the evening on the border with Austria. Germany being economically better priced and it’s beer being unequivocally better flavoured, its a warm welcome from our days riding!

DAY 10 & 11 - Heading home

Our last 2 days we head for Luxembourg then onto Calais before heading to UK. Our route on day 11 is toll free. The last couple of evenings are spent reminiscing, talking about the experiences of which there will be many. New friends will have been formed and new skills would have been learnt. The tour ends with our usual speech from the tour guide and nomination for “Rider of The Tour”, just some light hearted fun to finish what will be an epic adventure

All prices are inclusive of VAT

How many riders in the group?

We limit our tour groups to a maximum of 15 riders in any group. For special circumstances we may increase this slightly.

How do you keep all the riders together?

We use a drop-off system. A system whereby one rider will usually nominate him/herself to be back marker. The system works very well as a team

What time is the meet on the first day at the Eurotunnel?

We meet at 07.30 in the terminal itself, ready for boarding the train at around 08.20

Can I meet you in Calais or at the first nights hotel?

Yes, you can, just let us know and we will make the necessary adjustments to your invoice

I have never ridden abroad before, is this a suitable tour?

Yes, indeed. It is an ideal tour as it has a relaxed pace. Just bear in mind the first and last days mileage may be higher than what you are accustomed to. Our tour guides are very professional and experienced riders and we ensure the group stays together at all times (unless you want to go alone on any particular day, then this is fine)

Is this tour suitable for pillions?

Absolutely, it’s a lovely scenic tour and there will be lots for your pillion to see on route each day. We typically stop mid morning for a coffee break, again at lunchtime and usually again in the afternoon for refreshments. In between these times, there is usually plenty of stops for pictures and leg/bum rests. This tour does attract pillion riders (typically female pillions) which does offer some female company to any other female pillions on the tour. (makes a change from man talk!)

Does everyone socialise in the evening?

The way GMT run it’s tours is so that everyone has the choice and flexibility to do as they please, even if they want to spend the day riding on their own and following the sat nav having loaded our routes onto it. However, our guides are very attentive and will spend the evening with the clients making sure they are entertained, having fun, being happy and enjoying themselves. You can of course do you own thing, there is no obligation to stay as a group in the evenings, in other words, if you want to venture off and dine alone or with your partner/friend

I have heard horror stories of arrogant and obnoxious tour guides and some that have left riders behind, can you assure me this wont be the case?

We wont assure you, we will guarantee you this will not be the case! Every GMT tour guide is attentive and puts the customers first, each and every time. It is their objective to ensure the group remains together and no one is left stranded at a petrol station etc or feeling left out. You only have to see our independent review site to get the assurance you need… https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/guidedmotorbiketours.co.uk

If you have any further questions please ask us, we are very personable and friendly and are more than happy to chat. You can call us on 0330 111 0112 or email us at hello@guidedmotorbiketours.co.uk

For me an extremely important element of an adventure such as this is how the tour guide is and I have always found Chris approachable and understanding

I enjoy the pace we travel at and if I feel like going at another pace, then I do so, without worry. It was also fortunate to share this journey with a wonderful group of people, all in all a really good trip. Would also add the hotels were very diverse and the more enjoyable for this
