” We had a great time on the Pyrenees tour, it was my partner’s first bike tour, she can’t wait to do it again, many thanks to overland motorcycle tours.”
Overland Motorcycle Tours met us at the outgoing ferry and guided us along the best roads the Pyrenees have to offer. All the hotels were excellent with consideration for secure parking. GPS routes are provided so you can find your own way if you prefer. Lunch stops away from tourist areas and interesting visits along the way enhanced the experience. You do need to be ready for some fairly long days in the saddle but it is well worth the effort. Thanks to Jay and Alan. Recommended.
Tour Leader Jay is a superb moto rider and mechanically knowledgeable. He has clearly invested many hours developing fantastic tour routes and selecting a neat variety of hotels. The small group size and Jay’s logistical planning resulted in efficient travel and enabled everyone to ride at their desired pace. Most importantly, Jay’s positive attitude, helpfulness, and constant smile made for a most pleasant experience.
Fantastic tour organized by Jay. Excellent coordination and planning resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable 8 days riding through the Pyrenees across numerous, beautiful mountain passes and flowing valley roads. All the hotels we stayed in were excellent with secure parking for our bikes.
Two of our group (including myself) opted to go via Brittany Ferries on our own bikes, which worked really well with a relaxing night in a comfortable cabin. Fly & ride also an option.
By far the best and easiest way to enjoy the best roads in the Pyrenees thanks to Overland’s choice of routes, which Jay has gone to great efforts to perfect! Many thanks
