A well-organized guided motorcycle tour makes everything easy. When you book a guided motorcycle tour, most times you are new to the area so it is always a good idea to have a business organize your entire trip, especially if the country you are visiting is very unlike yours. Although sometimes you are just a local who just wants to relax, enjoy and ride
So let’s go through the top reasons why you should book a guided motorcycle tour.
Let Somebody Else Worry About You
Probably the best reason to book a guided motorcycle tour, you are on vacation and you just want to enjoy your free time and not have to worry about hotels, routes, and various other things that involve planning a trip. You just want the perfect trip and you want somebody else to worry about everything. I don’t blame you, I’d do the same!
Meet new people
If you are a social person, this is the perfect time to meet new people from all over the world and, make long-lasting friendships that can potentially turn into new riding experiences with these friends you’ll make. It’s a great opportunity to meet new cultures, new personalities and to create a little community over the course of a few days. You’ll normally travel with groups of 5 to 15 people This will depend on the company’s policies of course. Some companies limit the number of riders to provide a much more personal experience. In my personal opinion, 10 riders should be the absolute limit to create the most amazing trip, but of course, this is only a personal opinion!
The perfect route
As a motorcycle rider, your main worry is the route, accommodation stays in a second-place (although is key to have the best experience). Now, if you travel to a new country it is always hard to find the perfect route, you can spend hours, if not days, in front of Google Maps finding winding roads that go through beautiful places, and that have great hotels along the way. So this is when booking a guided tour becomes handy. The company you hire will always find the best route, with the best roads, best towns and cities to visit along the way, and of course the best hotels.
This is a key aspect to enjoy your trip. Safety doesn’t only mean wearing the correct gear, which is essential whether you do a guided tour or you go on your own. Safety also means choosing the right road, having an experienced team to back you up in case of an accident, have a back-up vehicle, visit the right places, have someone that speaks the local language, having a well-maintained motorcycle, etc. Can you imagine breaking down in the middle of nowhere, in a country where you don’t know the language and at night? I mean, as an experience to tell your grandkids maybe, but it wouldn’t be fun if you are doing this during your vacation. So if you want to enjoy your holidays and of course, enjoy your riding, always trust a motorcycle tour operator.
When you travel alone in a new country or in an area that you are not familiar with, you will most likely miss a lot of good stuff. When traveling with a tour operator you’ll have the opportunity to access many experiences and activities that you’d otherwise miss. Of course, this is not the most important point, but it will definitely make your trip that much better! Also, if you travel with a group you can get many discounts when visiting places like museums, or many other activities.
