This tour is billed as an adventure tour and for someone who had not biked outside Europe, it lived up to its title. There were challenging weather conditions in Spain, border crossings, and breakdowns to contend with, but the rewards were some of the best roads I’ve ever ridden, both tarred and unmetalled and a chance to get close to a different culture. Highlights? Always a personal thing but riding to Ait-Benhaddou and going around this world heritage site was up there with the gorges. The sat-nav routes supplied by Jay were accurate and gave confidence when riding away from the group. Make no mistake this is a rider’s tour with long days in the saddle, but that was what I signed up for. It has whetted my appetite for a return visit; job done.
I bought a new Honda Africa Twin and a mate said: “hey, fancy getting your bike dirty?” – The next thing I knew I had signed up for the Guided Motorcycle tour Morocco with Overland Motorcycle Tours, and I did indeed get my bike very dirty.
If you own a bike with “Africa” or perhaps “Adventure” in the name then you really should let it do what it was made for at least once in its life.
The roads and bureaucracy of Africa are not like that of Europe. It’s not really a place that the inexperienced can simply turn up and expect trip advisor to make everything easy. Simply getting across the border, and out again, in fact, are not without complications.
Having a guide that’s experienced and organized makes all the difference. The sheer logistics of a 16-night tour would not have been possible for me to organize myself. If you haven’t ridden the roads before you don’t really have any way of calculating ride times. Some sections are very fast indeed and others very slow and not really roads by any sensible definition. Jay knows the routes and what’s possible and what’s perhaps less so in a day.
Overland motorcycle tours provided a detailed itinerary early on and plenty of professional assistance long before we even set off. From insurance to what maintenance and tools to bring, they have done a lot of thinking for you. All ferry crossings and accommodation was organized leaving you to simply ride your bike.
The trip itself is a riding holiday – make no mistake it’s an adventure and one that requires some effort on your part to complete, not everyone made it to the end – but that’s the point, “adventure” remember.
Go with the flow, test yourself and your bike, but there is a guide with you for when things go pear-shaped.
I’m happy to recommend Overland Motorcycle Tours and Jay specifically. I had a great time with some great people and I’ve got some great stories to tell as a result.
My bike says Adventure on the fuel tank, not Milton Keynes…!
Fantastic trip from start to finish with a great bunch of people. Jay that owns overland tours could not do enough for everyone, knows first class how to book the best places to stay and Raz the best roads and places to go. Trip of a lifetime and something that we will never forget.met up with great people on the tour and was just like a big family get together.
Just back from the Guided Motorcycle tour Morocco. It was a totally epic adventure well beyond my expectations. A group of 10 of us went, mind-blowing, fantastic hotels, great roads, great group of people, very professional. It was an adventure of a lifetime. Couldn’t recommend it any higher, 100% .Will definitely be back with another group WELL DONE TO ALL AT OVERLAND MOTORCYCLE TOURS
Just returned from the Guided Motorcycle tour Morocco Tour and I have to say I and all the other participants had a fantastic experience. From the initial information provided after booking to the itinerary of the tour, everything was well organized by Jay and well-executed by tour leader Raz. The standard of the hotels and the locations visited were first class and I would have no hesitation recommending Overland Motorcycle Tours.
Just returned from the Guided Motorcycle tour Morocco tour with Overland and would rate it as 10 stars if I could! It was professional and well planned from the start with a meeting with a tour rep at Plymouth before jumping on the ferry.
The routes were excellent and the hotels a high standard being well placed to enjoy all of the places we visited. The welcome at the hotels was also lovely and it was clear Jay had a good personal relationship with them and they were pleased to see him return.
Routes in both Spain and Morocco were excellent and an exciting mix of surfaces and riding styles.
I recommend this tour for the culture, excitement, and feeling of adventure whilst being in safe hands.
Thank you guys for your kind words, we’re glad that all our hard work and effort has paid off, along with the few adjustments we made following last years tour. Looking forward to seeing you again, soon. Ride safe regards Jay
