Here’s what previous participants had to say:
“I enjoyed the adventure i.e., road conditions due to recent weather, the sightseeing was very good and the change in geography was pretty cool. Note: This was my first time going anywhere south of the U.S. and it was quite an eye opener. Enjoyed the group and had a great time.”
“I enjoyed all aspects of the tour. I especially liked the ample opportunities for independent riding when the situation allowed. The tour was a great ride with a wide variety of road and weather conditions and some of the most spectacular landscapes imaginable.”
“What I liked best about the tour were the roads–the altitudes–the variety! It was nice to have the opportunity to mix up the road surfaces we traveled. The participants in the group were all fantastic!”
