"From start to finish everything is thought of . The bikes are fantastic .the local staff are brilliant. Peter brings his own guiding talents to the group. The scenery enroute is awesome. The Hotel accommodation at the end of each long day on the bike was class. Food was excellent everyday .how many groups can spend 12 days in India without a case of the Delhi belly ?. You return home feeling you have had a proper adventure . Will be back 👍🏻"

Lisa and John - Southern India - February 2023

'We are just back from our bucket list adventure to Morocco. It was our first guided tour abroad and British Bike Tours made it so easy. The hotels and routes were above what we expected, with fun roads, amazing sights and sounds.

Pete and Lorraine (our guides) were so knowledgeable, experienced and friendly it just added to the fun of the adventure.
If you are looking for a tour company British Bike Tours are the people to go with.'
Alex and Sue - Morocco Desert Raid Tour - November 2022
"Nicely back from the North of England Tour last weekend. Have to say I had a great time, my first organised tour and hopefully there will be more to come.
Trip was well organised, Raz was very knowlegable, and good company.
Only a small group, but it is getting late in the year, made very good friends and we hope to meet up again.
Days were great ride outs, helped by good weather. Evenings were very enjoyable, good fun and entertaining.
Heartily recommend Pride of the North Motorcycle Tours.
I for one, plan on joining in with a few more.
Dave A - Pride of the North - September 2022

See you next year on one or more of your tours"
Dave T - Scotland and NC500 - September 2022
"My first official bike tour - had a great time in a fantastic place with incredible history, certainly a must visit area. Tour guide Mark was fantastic - very enthusiastic about the trip from the word go, extremely knowledgeable and brilliantly organised which made it easy for us numpties on the bikes to relax and enjoy the trip to the full. Can't recommend this trip highly enough, beautiful place and a place that's history teaches you the meaning of the word humility - just a brilliant all-round experience. Thanks Mark."
Robert - Normandy D-Day Landings - August 2022
"Just back from completing the Black Forest & Vosges Mountains Motorcycle Tour! Had an amazing time with such a great group of like minded bikers. The tour was well organised with good accommodation and guided by Keith who took time to make us all feel welcomed and comfortable while riding within a group. This was my first Euro bike tour and I'm now looking forward to taking part in many more. Cheers Keith and British Bike Tours team!"
Andy - Black Forest & Vosges Mountains Tour - August 2022
"Recently Completed the Black Forest and Voges mountains tour, which was excellent throughout - the roads and routes were brilliant, scenery was great, and it was really well led by Keith, who was also great company. It helped that the weather was good pretty much throughout, and that we had a really nice group of fellow riders. What’s not to like - with terrific riding through beautiful scenery in countries that positively embrace motorcycling. Recommended!"
Keith - Black Forest & Vosges Mountains Tour - August 2022
"Just came back from a two week tour of Northern Italy, Austria, and Slovenia. Had to have been two of the best two weeks of my life. The tour was great, the people were lovely and the tour guide organised and very informative. Would recommend this tour to anyone who is an experienced rider book it and I promise you will not regret it don’t normally leave reviews but was so impressed that I am already looking at what to book next with this company,"
Steve - Mountains and Lakes Tour - August 2022
"Being my first euro trip I was apprehensive, Keith the guide is down to early laid back and very unassuming, in the evening at mealtime he had some great stories and you warm to him very quickly , the highlight was the roads … smooth , twisty and not crowded, the vistas were breathtaking , parallel to that which took me by surprise was the group of lads on our tour whom we never have met , maybe we were lucky , maybe everyone feels the same with likeminded individuals after a while but all just clicked with very individual personalities it made for interesting conversation and so much laughter , I will take this trip to the grave with me… thanks for making it so memorable to the tour company and the others on my trip … 🙏🏼"
Geoff - Black Forest & Vosges Mountains - August 2022
"Really enjoyed the Alps tour met my some really nice people and did some great riding !!"
Roy - Alps Tour - July 2022
"Fantastic trip Peter. Thoroughly enjoyed it. See u next year 😀"
Martin - Himalaya - June/July 2022
"Back from the pride of the north tour, was a fantastic weekend, Keith our guide was amazing guy, we had been to places we never knew existed, was a lovely group of friendly people and hotels & breakfast was great, would highly recommend this company."
Trisha - Pride of North Tour - May 2022
"Just got back from the Battlefield tour.
Great tour with Pete and a great bunch of lads that went.
Highly recommended."
Peter - Normandy D-Day Landings Tour - May 2022
"Great tour. No way would you put together a series of such wonderful roads and scenery on your own. Good hotels and good company. Hardknott was the sting in the tail and a real challenge in the wet."
Geoff - Pride of the North Tour - October 2020
"The rain didn't stop this being enjoyable - if anything it added to the experience. The great roads, scenery and challenging sections give the perfect balance of enjoyment, thrill and a sense of achievement. Coupled with a a great group of fellow bikers to ride with, made this a highlight of the year. The most memorable parts include: Buttertubs pass, Honister Pass, Hardknott Pass, and riding through the forest around Kielder Water. Northern England at its best. Thanks Peter and Lorraine for planning a great tour."
Stuart - Pride of the North Tour - October 2020
"October isn't the best time of year to do a bike tour of the North of England, but having just finished this tour I can highly recommend it at any time of year. We had sun, cloud, rain, wind and floods but the roads, the sights, the companionship with the rest of the tour and the guiding from Peter and Lorraine made it a fantastic experience where the weather didn't matter. The roads were a bit challenging at times, but that just added to the satisfaction felt at the end of each day. Some of the riding was in areas where I ride regularly, but they had managed to find roads that I didn't even know existed, so I was really pleased to learn about them. I'll certainly be doing other tours next year."
Malcolm - Pride of the North Tour - October 2020
"Hi Peter Thanks for a good enjoyable NC500 tour, especially during these times. I’ll certainly be keeping a lookout for 2021 tours and hope to meet up again."
 Allen - Scotland and NC500 tour - September 2020
"This was my first organised tour having ridden in Europe many times before. The tour had to be tweaked due to restrictions in travelling but this didn't spoil the adventure, there were many great roads to be explored and amazing scenery. Peter's knowledge of mountain passes ensured we had many challenging routes to enjoy. The pace of the tour was just right, only one closure meant getting to the hotel a bit later, the rest of the time there was plenty of time to relax and enjoy good food. I would recommend the tour highly and hope to do another in 2021."
Mike - Austria, Italy, Slovenia Tour - August 2020
"Hi Peter and Lorraine. Just want to say a huge thank you for the Nepal trip. It is only upon reflection now, I really appreciate how amazing the trip was and how lucky we were to see the diversity in scenery the country has to offer and take in the culture. None of this would have been possible without you both. Thanks again"
Murray - Nepal Motorcycle Tour - October 2019
"Went on the 2019 tour with my wife as pillion. Absolutely amazing tour. Hotels are roads were just amazing. I think this tour is the ultimate riders tour. This was the only tour I have done, where there was more wear on the sides of the rear tyre than the centre. This is a must do tour, but be prepared for some long days and scenery to die for."
John and Mandy - Alps Motorcycle Tour - July 2019
"I would like to say thank you for a great tour of the Balkans. The route took in some great roads and lovely scenery. I especially enjoyed the Alps, the Dolomites and Dubrovnik to name a few. The hotels we stayed in were superb and the group was fantastic and I can’t wait to do it again"
Mark - Balkans Motorcycle Tour - Sept 2019
 "Big thank you to Peter for the Balkan tour , had a fantastic holiday with a great group.. look forward to the next one ! cheers John"
John - Balkans Motorcycle Tour - Sept 2019
"Hi Peter I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic tour. It ticked every box for me. Great riding. Good food and hotels. Stunning scenery and most importantly a great craic as the Irish say. Keep up the good work and I'll see you again for sure. Thanks again"
Paul - Balkans Motorcycle Tour - Sept 2019
"Peter we had an amazing tour or the WW1 sites and Paul was an excellent host. The whole tour was informative, fun and just the right blend of history and interest. The pace was very enjoyable and the hotel was excellent. Can’t thank Paul enough for his expert knowledge and his calm and patient manner with all of us loonies and jokers. Definitely back for another"
Frank - World War 1 Tour - August 2019
"WOW where do I begin! Peter and Lorraine are the best guides ever. This was the very first bike tour that my husband ( the rider) and myself (the pillion) have ever done and to say I choose the most challenging tour ( Himalayas) is to say the least, but with Peter and Lorraine's guidance and support throughout the tour we had an amazing, challenging and emotional experience. The support backup team were second to none and although we were a small group they were aware of each individual's needs. I would absolutely recommend using British Bike Tours for they're caring, professional, knowledgeable expertise."
 Deborah and James - Himalaya Tour - June 2019
"Just completed the epic Alps Adventure Tour. This tour was not for the faint hearted but if you want to ride some of the very best twisty roads and mountain passes out there whilst taking in some awsome scenery and changing landscapes this is it. I have been doing motorbike tours around the World for 25 years and this was one of the best I have done. Thanks Peter keep up the great work."
 Mark L - Alps Motorcycle Tour - July 2019
"I took the plunge to sign up for this adventure and what an adventure this is. This was my first full tour into Europe on a new bike. Nervous but truly excited, knowing that I was in the confirmed great pair of tour guide hands of Peter and the BBT Team. The trip promised to be tough and I can’t say I was not challenged. Even learned a few things about my character and not being able to handle 40 degree heat (I know now how cranky I am in the hot Seriously I travelled with some real honest folk who were as excited to be on this trip. The scenery is breathtaking and the roads magnificently challenging. As I said the organisation is simply fantastic and everything was planned very well. I look forward to my next tour with the BBT Team. Thanks to my fellow riders for making this such a memorable trip."
Mark - Alps Motorcycle Tour - July 2019
"Just like to say a massive thank you to Peter and Paul for organizing and giving Phil and myself a brilliant adventure with some great riding and scenery along with perfect accommodation. It was tremendous value and fun and I think we all made some great friends thrown in."
Simon - Black Forest & Vosges Mountains Motorycycle Tour - May 2019
"Hi Peter, just to say many thanks to you and Paul for a great tour. Had the weather been better it would have made all the difference, however I still enjoyed myself and what a great crowd of guys.
Some great riding and great roads, well done, thanks again"
John - Vosges (Intro to Twisties) Motorcycle Tour - April 2019
"Thanks for another great trip with a good bunch of blokes. See you next year."
Bill - Vosges (Intro to Twisties) Motorcycle Tour - April 2019
"A truly magnificent experience for my first ever organised groups ride. Well done to Peter & Lorraine. To my fellow travellers, thanks for the humour and memories."
Mark - Pride of the North Motorcycle Tour - May 2018
Thanks for another great tour, well organised and led. Well worth the sore **** and aching limbs to have such good fun!!!!
Apart from the one afternoon the weather was great.
How do you find those roads?????
It was all over to quickly, and we were back to the overcrowded british roads again. Going to try and do another tour with you later in the year."
Kelvin - Black Forest
"Hi Peter,
Just a short email to say how much I enjoyed the trip to South India. The route,riding and bikes were great and so was the company.
Everything was very well organised, the support and the hotels were very good too.
I'll keep an eye on the website from now and keep up with the tours available.
Thanks again, it was the most enjoyable bike trip I have been on.
Best wishes"
Jane - Southern India
"Hi Peter,
Black forest tour – perfect, from the booking, the information and sat nav files through to the riding.
The icing on the cake for me was being a “mini me” and having my own tour group of 4 bikes down the B500 on Saturday, followed by a rousing “Happy Birthday” in the restaurant and a very much appreciated bottle of Champagne!
As you said, it was a good group and the riding standards were good. I’m trawling your web site for the next tour, which is tentatively Morocco…..
Steve - Black Forest
"Hi Peter,
Just a Big thank you for a fantastic tour Led by Ras and Gordon, these two guys were great as it was my first time on a tour like this with a group. They made everyone feel relaxed and really gelled as a team fantastic riding and great evenings. I would have no problems in recommending British Bike Tours to anyone.
Really look forward to getting on a tour again with your company. Please give the boys a big pat on the back from me and will see them soon.
My Very Best Regards to a great company."
Norman - Vosges Tour
"Hi Peter / Lorraine,
Long overdue email from me saying thank you for a fantastic experience on your Himalaya tour in July.
Still haven’t “come down” in more ways than one – and you were quite right I did (after not too much thought) go out and buy a bike – Suzuki VStrom 650 (not the Triumph that Ray hoped I would get)."
Malcolm - Himalaya Tour

Derek (a legend) - Southern India Tour
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a great 5 days on the Black Forest tour. This was my first as part of a group on an organised tour and i have to say i really enjoyed the experience. I count myself lucky that i was able to be part of such a great group of people who just seemed to get on from day one and i have some great contacts to keep in touch with.
The organisation was great, hotels top notch and food and beer just what was needed at the end of a days riding along great roads and scenery. 
Keep me updated on the trip details for next year coz i am sure to be booking another."
Andy - Black Forest
"Wanted to say what a fantastic time I had on this trip and it was all due the wonderfully warm friendly and encouraging people I can't believe I met for the first time 3 weeks ago. I have so many memories etched into my brain and some engraved literally on my body as I'm sure Richard would agree. Sorry again mate!!
It was an absolute blast and loved every minute.
Thank you all so much.
The very best of luck wherever life may lead you."
Mike - Southern India
"I would like to thank everyone on the tour for making it the most enjoyable tour I've been on. Also thanks to Peter for all your help and putting up with me. The Alps trip is highly recommended"
Gino - Alps Tour Suzuki GSXR
"Just got back from the Black Forest Tour.........What can I say, we all had a brilliant time, what a great bunch of like-minded people and the icing on the cake was Raz.......what a guy he was born to do that job!
 I would definitely recommend British Bike Tours. I know that sounds like an advert, but it’s true.
Martin - Black Forest"
"Just a quick note to thank you for an enjoyable, moving and interesting weekend in France and Belgium. Good company and places of interest. I hope everyone got home safely and the contingent from the North East in particular, following their morning after the night before!"
Mike - World War 1 - Honda Varadero
"Hi Pete,
Just an email to say thanks for a fantastic trip.
As usual the organisation was great and the unofficial detours were just added value.
It was a really good group of people too.
I hope my little bike wasn't too warn out after all the gear changes etc.
Thanks again,
Jane" - Southern India
"Just a quick message to say merry Christmas, happy new year and thanks for an amazing adventure this year. Hope to join you again soon for another one. Ride and fly safe mate."
Jim (RAF Fighter Pilot) - Himalaya
"Hi Peter and Lorraine,
Well we've been back a couple of weeks now, we had a fab time especially on the bike tour which we both really enjoyed, it was great to get a good flavour of Nepal."
April - Nepal Tour
"Hi Peter
Hope you're keeping well. It seems like along time ago since Andy and I went on your Balkans trip in 2012 but still have plenty of great memories and stories.
We are currently looking for something to do early next year and we are quite taken with the idea of your Morocco trip, particularly as it had such glowing reviews from Libby and Mark."
John - Balkans Tour
"I'd just like to say that the tours you've put together are by far the best trips I have ever been on and congratulations for running the tours for so long and keeping up with the schedule you set yourself. I have been on trips with other tour companies to watch Irish Road Racing but although these were very good they weren't a patch on British Bike Tours.
Wishing you and Lorraine all the very best for the future, and if you get bored of surveying in a couple of years and put a trip together please let me know!
Hope you stay in touch,
"I will re-iterate what Roger has said. I am very grateful to you introducing me to so many great guys; we have had a couple of fabulous weekends away and as a small group we seem to just get along so well……no stress - just ride, eat, drink and sleep and enjoy ourselves. I hope we will continue to get together next year and have equally as much fun. If you can join us at some point in the future that would be good."
Julie - Black Forest Tour, Balkans Tour
"I never got a chance to thank you for a leading a successful tour with no accidents or incidents of any consequence, no mean achievement, shame we didn't see more of the mountains but if the weather is against you and the roads don't exist nothing you can do."
Personally I found the mix of riding, sightseeing and adventure just right 24/7 on the bike can get a bit much.
Once again many thanks
Rhell - Nepal Tour
"Hi Peter
Just to let you know I arrived safely back home earlier today.
Thanks for a great tour that exceeded all my expectations.
I would definitely use British Bike Tours again, and will be recommending your company to my friends.
Hope to see you again sometime. Take care."
Andrew - Vosges Tour
Hi Peter , just a wee note to let you kno that the ww1tour was great, company was great and Paul was top dog (great guide) would i do it again yes I would.
Cheers Grant. - World War 1 Tour
"Hi Peter
I am already looking at where I would like to go for 2014, having just returned from a trip to the Himalayas and am interested in two of your tours, the Mekong tour to Laos and the Nepal tour. Some of our party met some guys in the Hotel Metropolitan in Delhi who were just completing one of your tours, and you came highly recommended.
"It was apparent from feedback from Julie that the group dynamics from the Black Forest tour was quite special and re-iterated by Pete when she saw him again on the later Balkan tour that she did. It is fair to say that a custom tour by Pete in 2014 would definitely be a great thing and hopefully we can all start thinking about that and suitable dates."
Roger - Black Forest
"Morning Peter
Another great tour, weather very hot, great group of people, nice roads, what more could we ask for!! The tour was well led by Paul.
Look forward to doing another trip with you."
Kelvin - Normandy Beaches Tour
"Great ride and company, what an adventure and crack still laughing now, thanks Roger for starting this so promptly. It was a real pleasure meeting you all and look forward in staying in touch, will upload video taken and then advise how view.
Thank you Peter, a fantastic time which will be remember happily for a long time."
Andy - Black Forest
"Hi Peter
 Just wanted to drop you a mail to say what a fantastic time we had on the Vosges trip, Raz was excellent as lead bike, given this was our first trip abroad on the bike we didnt know quite what to expect but were soon put at our ease. We were really impressed by how smooth and organised everything was and will definately be recommending your company to fellow bikers:)"
John & Justine - Vosges
"Hi Peter 
Would just like to say what a fabulous time we had in Morocco. We thought you might like to look at our photos so we attach the link for them. It can take a while to download as there are about 900 photos - Deb went a bit mad on the back of the bike."
Andy and Deb - Morocco Tour
"Just wanted to say what a great holiday was had on the recent ‘Intro To The Twisties’ tours and felt good news was worthy of a mention but shame about the weather.
Great riding by both Raz and Gordon, very helpful throughout trip and very professional riding by both, great hotels especially the first 2 nights and good varied riding roads"
Tim - Vosges Tour
"Hi all,
Please find the email addresses from all on the tour. I had an awesome time and can’t stop talking about it."

"Gaz DL 650V STROM GT.
I would just like to thank British Bike Tours for organising first class tours. Had a brilliant time on great roads with great company and tour guide. Will definately be booking another tour with you in the future."
Gaz. - Black Forest Tour
"Hello Peter,
Just a quick message to say how much I enjoyed the Loire trip. Paul, or 'Chef' as he likes to be called in France, was a great tour leader as well, always being sociable, friendly and entertaining as well as being considerate of the different riding abilities in the group. I think that there were quite a few people on their first tour who were a little nervous at first, but Paul made sure that everyone was in their comfort zone and everyone was soon at ease.
Paul said that he liked to see people enjoying themselves on these trips, and I have no doubt at all that everybody did exactly that.
Anyway, based upon this experience, I shall certainly look to go on another trip, hopefully sooner rather than later."
Nigel - Loire Valley Tour
"Hi Peter,
The tour was great, well organised as usual. Good bunch of guys to ride with, thought Liz did so well too, considering she was in with a load of blokes. Now used to the new bike, what a way to run the engine in ! ... on those brilliant roads, good varied riding every day, doesn't get much better. Thanks again, look forward to doing another one, all the best,"
Roland - Black Forest Tour
"HI Peter
Just to let you know the vosges trip was bloody brilliant, everyone had a great time and Keith did a great job, Can you let me know when I can reserve a place for next May."
Ian - Vosges Tour
"Thanks for a great weekend (despite the weather).The tour was very good, well thought out, great hotels, great food and good company.
The tour was just what I was looking for to increase my confidence in riding, it did just that especially in the wet.
Thanks again."
Kelvin - Normandy Beaches Tour
"Hi Peter
Just a quick note to say thank you for such an amazing tour, everyone in the group will have memories to last a lifetime."
Richard - Morocco Tour
