The Adventure Motorcycle tour Morocco is different from our other tour – the Imperial Morocco motorcycle tour, as we’ll be riding more of the high Atlas mountain roads, passes and unsealed roads.
+ We’ll also be heading down towards the Sahara to visit Erg Chebbi one of Morocco’s large areas of dunes, to spend the night in a luxury Kasbah with swimming pool. Where we will have a day off to relax or explore the dunes on Quad bikes or 4×4 (optional) In the evening our Berber guides will collect us with Camels for the Desert camp experience! (included)
From intermediate to experienced rider ✓ Adventure tour ✓ Guided / Escorted tour ✓ unsealed road riding experience – happy on gravel ✓ Up for an adventure / Challenge ✓ Average daily mileage 230 miles 16 days ✓
Un sealed road riding or trail experience is essential as we will be using unsealed roads in places to join up interesting places along the way! Most bikes are suitable, if you are unsure please ask.

Tour Reviews 2017
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 with Overland Motorcycle Tours Morocco trip 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 organised makes all the difference. The sheer logistics of a 16 night tour would not have been possible for me to organise 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 organised 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 Africa Twin on the fuel tank, not Milton Keynes…!
Thank you guys for your kind words, were 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
