Our tour guide, made our trip memorable. We had a wonderful time. We rode a wide variety of routes with breathtaking scenery, fun and challenging roads. The selection of restaurants for our daily lunch stops was excellent. The food was great and very reasonably priced. Our nightly accommodations were all in great locations and met all of our needs. We stopped at a variety of interesting places during the tour which enhanced our experience and increased our understanding of the region. its roads and places to visit. We highly recommend this tour!

Mountains All The Way
My friend Marc and I just returned from this tour. We went for the self guide option.
We both ride Harley-Davidson’s.
Everything is said in the title of the tour and when Jay says ‘mountains all the way’ he isn’t kidding. Every day you are treated to amazing roads, peaks and spectacular views.
If you love riding your machine you will love the switchbacks, gradients, mountain passes and summits.
The selection of hotels was good and we enjoyed a comfortable stay in each location.
Best of all is Jay’s attention to detail. In advance of the trip he prepared bespoke Sat Nav routes for us using the Harley-Davidson online ride planner and these routes worked flawlessly. From point A to point B each day and never missed a beat.
At any point during the trip when we had a question Jay was there on WhatsApp within minutes to provide immediate assistance, it was like the ultimate ‘Phone a friend’ ?.
We both thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would definitely book again with Jay without hesitation.

Fantastic tour organised 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 comfotable cabin. Fly & ride also an option.
By far the best and esiest 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 Phill

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.

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 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.
I’m happy to recommend Overland Motorcycle. I had a great time with some great people and I’ve got some great stories to tell as a result.
