European Motorcycle Tours

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Tours
in Europe and Beyond

At Tour1 we therefore provide a bespoke guided motorcycle tour service that is designed to meet any touring requirement you may want for you or your group.

Bespoke Motorcycle Tours

Sometimes, a standard guided tour just doesn’t fit with what people would like to do.

At Tour1 we therefore provide a bespoke guided motorcycle tour service that is designed to meet any touring requirement you may want.

There are two types of guided bespoke tour:

  • Luxury bespoke tours, with a limited number of people on 1 or 2 motorcycles.
  • Group bespoke tours, with up to 12 motorcycles.

We design and run bespoke tours anywhere in Europe, the USA, New Zealand and Australia.  Other places can be considered.  Most of our tours are on Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

These motorcycle holidays can be whatever and whenever you want, and for any length of time. We give you exactly what you want.

We have set out some broad principles of how we operate these tours.

You Tell us

  • How many people
  • Where you want to go
  • How long for
  • What you might want to see or do
  • How long you like to ride for each day
  • If you want to stay in any one place for more than one night
  • What standard of accommodation you want (anything from basic, right up to 5-star luxury)
  • Anything else that is important to you
  • Where are you from and will you need to rent motorcycles

We then design your motorcycle touring holiday:

  • We research and plan the route
  • We work out the best places to stop and look at
  • We book the hotels
  • We suggest restaurants
  • We arrange the rental bikes
  • We transport the rental bikes if necessary
  • We do all the fine planning
  • We book the flights, if that is what you want (although often it is easier if you do this)
  • We arrange a luggage van, if you want that
  • We personally guide each days ride, allowing you to do nothing but enjoy yourselves
  • We operate with absolute discretion

How the costs work:

  • You pay for all the groups costs, including flights, hotels, motorcycle rentals, fuel, including for the tour leader, any back-marker needed, etc  at cost.  We don’t add a penny onto the those costs
  • Or we can pay it on your behalf, at cost, and you reimburse us
  • You then simply pay us an agreed fixed rate per day during the tour for our time
  • We ask for an up-front fee to cover our tour planning work, but this is deducted from the overall tour fee when the tour goes ahead.

It is that simple. You are just paying us for our time in organising and then personally guiding the tour. We have been arranging high quality motorcycle tours for many years and have ridden extensively in both Europe and the USA. We know the best places to ride.
