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 Euro tunnel?
We meet at 07.00 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?
It is an ideal tour as it has a relaxed pace. 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
