Douro Valley Portugal 2023

Hi Julie

We are back home safe and sound, what a great trip!  Nothing on the roads, good hotels, plenty of wine, now on a diet!

We want to thank you for arranging the trip we really had a great time.

 Can you send me over fact sheets for Croatia, as possible trip for next September and also Ireland as possible trip for earlier next year.

 Best Regards




Spain & Portugal

Hi again Julie

We are back home now after our fantastic Spain and Portugal tour that you put together for us.

Each hotel was superb and their locations were spot on.

The routes that you suggested took us on some fantastic, quieter roads through brilliant scenery.

All the directions and road numbers you provided were accurate and very helpful.

The twists, turns, climbs and descents all added to the thrills that we were expecting.

All the SatNav lat/long positions were absolutely accurate for the hotel locations too.



E2312 Eifel & Mosel

Dear Paul & Jo

Just a note to say thank you for the trip to Mosel & Eifel region. As it was my first tour, I wasn't sure what to expect and was a little nervous! 

Really enjoyable with a great bunch of like minded people to enjoy the day and the evening with. A great initiation into the world of motorcycle touring.....I'll hopefully be back for more.

Look forward to next year's tours being released!!

Kind regards



E2206 Luxembourg Long Weekend

A truly great long weekend in and around Luxembourg.  Lovely hotel and good food. Superbly organised by Colin and June, with a little help from Steve, and a great bunch of people (new friends).

Most enjoyable, thank you MCI

Best regards

FEC800 tour of Scotland

Paul and Jo ran a fantastic tour, every day was fantastic with no sections that ever seemed a slog (even with Scotlands changeable weather). Every corner and new stretch of road brought new fantastic views and varied riding. Lastly but certainly not least, the tour changed a group of riders who had never ridden together before into a group of mates. 100% would jump on the bike and do it all again in the morning.

S23 SelfGuided Best Biking Roads in Austria

The SatNav largely behaved, the routes took us through some brilliant countryside in France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland, and we were blown away with the beauty of the area.  From agriculture, to vineyards, mountain passes and a myriad of tunnels, there was never a dull moment and we loved every minute.  The hotels you booked were all perfect, and the service we received at each was brilliant; nothing was too much trouble and there was so much food that we nearly had to buy new kit for the return as our stuff was getting a bit snug!  From the Manager of Auberge  patiently helping me with my French, offers to dry our kit in the Black Forst, to talking bikes / routes and pressure washing with Chris, everyone was interested and helpful.

On a personal note – I would like to say a big thanks in particular to you for your help, support and advice.  From the minute we sent off our initial booking request, you’ve been there by our side helping with everything.  The documentation provided was brilliant, clear and comprehensive.  The routes themselves clearly reflect the wisdom and experience gathered from years of arranging similar trips; there is no way I could have planned such a journey myself and capture so many great roads, sights, locations and cafes.  We are incredibly grateful to you for the service you have given us throughout.

J&A T, Dorset


Black Forest - Self Guided

I would just like to say thank you for arranging a fantastic trip hotels and staff were lovely, roads were amazing it was just a shame about the weather we got very wet three or four times.  Would definitely recommend your company and will be using you again in the future.

Austrian Tirol SelfGuided

Hi Julie,

Hope you are looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend.

A very belated thank you for organising our bike trip in Austria, P and I (especially P) had a great time and really didn’t want to leave. The bike hire company were great and the hotel really lovely, we will be going back (especially after they have built the outdoor swimming pool!). They also made a real effort for P's birthday

We had a wonderful time, even the weather was great



Historic Route 66

There are things in life that you hear of, read about or glean from the media that make you think ‘I would dearly love to do that someday’. The problem is that for many, some day never comes & quickly turns into ‘Oh how I wish’. Jacki (my wife) & myself gazed at Route 66 & took the decision that ‘would’ or ‘should’ needed to become ‘did’!
Just imagine arriving at Chicago & collecting your Harley (it has to be a Hog if you want to connect with the Americans, especially the old guys, bit like Triumph is in the UK) and then setting off across the vast continent that is America. So many differing states, peoples, customs, foods, the variety is unending - forests, plains, deserts, rivers, canyons, craters, mountains, bridges, temperatures. It’s just a joy to travel the Historic Route that the Old Pioneers took to get to the West to escape hardship - to be amazed that many of these desperate folk actually succeeded & deeply saddened to see the evidence left by those whose attempts ended in misery & failure.
Truly, a trip of a lifetime! Every day a surprise & every surprise a good one!
Our eternal thanks to Paul & Jo Myers & the crew at MCi who made this dream become a reality for the two of us. I should mention that we’re both in our 70s - it’s never too late, just get on & do it!
John & Jacki


SelfGuided Tailor Made Tour to Black Forest and Mosel Valley, Germany 2018

Hello Julie,

We had a absolutely fabulous holiday.

 We thought the Black Forest hotel was the best we have ever stayed in, the staff were courteous and pleased to help with anything, the food was excellent.  So good infact we are going to go back there at some point.

 Even when not doing riding routes, the walking trails was great.

The Mozel hotel was great, as promised he owner provided locations and routes to do. ( providing you take your sat nav cable with you)

He was a great cook and very welcoming. The hotel is situated in just the right place for walking and catching a train to the bigger towns if required.

The only thing I can think of is that the hotel is situated next to a train crossing, this is probably only an issue if you sleep in the front facing rooms.

 The routes provided for the holiday were spot on.

 All in all Julie you did rather well in putting this together for us, good effort and well done!

SelfGuided Pyrenees Tour

Dear Julie,

We got home yesterday from a wonderful holiday in the Pyrenees. We have to thank you for the accommodations you selected, especially the Moulin. The routes were great, and very easy to follow because of the very professional way in which they were presented. You even managed to arrange for clear blue skies. You must have influence with the weather gods!

Thank you once again for a great holiday, and apologies for being a bit of a pain over the technology.





Picos & Douro Valley

Hi Paul,Jo

Thanks for another great tour. I look forward to another tour with you next year and will probably call in and see you at the NEC show.

Kind Regards



Transylvania & Draculas Castle

I enjoyed the tour and the company all round was great. I thought it was very well organised with hotel check ins and parking quick and easy, and the hotels themselves were very good. I certainly hope to do another tour with you sometime and recommend MCI Tours.



Corsica & Sardinia

Thanks for leading a great tour - it was most enjoyable and thanks for the company, organisation and guidance you provided. I hope to travel with MCI again in the future.

Thank you for leading, another, great tour.  I have very happy memories of this tour - the scenery, the leadership, the accommodation and, most importantly, the riding. Well done on delivering another great adventure.




Assen MotoGP

Hi Paul

Just a short thank you for a brilliantly organised trip. Most enjoyable, everything was perfect.




Assen MotoGP

Paul, Jo,

I just wanted to take a moment to send you a thank you for all your organisation and assistance with getting myself, Peter my brother and our friend Andrew to the Assen Moto GP. I’m sure you’ve seen the result, so the GP didn't disappoint at all, the weather was wonderful, the hotel was lovely, the staff were brilliant, Groningen was fabulous, and both the ferries left on time!!! What more can I say but a genuine and heartfelt thank you, we had an outstanding weekend!!!!! And by the way those Grandstand seats were beyond belief!!! Right in front of the Chequered Flag with the front 3 just yards away!!!

I think we’ll be using you guys again for another trip, once we’ve sorted ourselves out and decided where to go. Thank you both so much!!

Kindest Regards



Assen MotoGP

Hi Paul.

Well we certainly did enjoy the trip. The race and the weather was outstanding! It has been easy to deal with you from the first enquiry and throughout - both you and Jo have been responsive and informative. The hotel and location was great and the tips and information sent through very helpful. The grandstand tickets were spot on as well!

Many thanks indeed



Corsica & Sardinia

The tour was great! We really enjoyed ourselves, and will definitely go with you again next year dates permitting.  Thanks for being great host's & great tour leaders.

Spanish Heritage

I would be hard pressed to find fault with the Spanish Heritage tour we just returned from. I enjoyed the company, the routes, the places we visited, and thought the pace was sensible.

I enjoyed both your company, and hope we can join you on the road to somewhere next year.

Actric Circle 2017

All in all a really enjoyable tour with good quality accommodation, fantastic roads and spectacular scenery in plentiful supply. Despite mixed weather and expensive beer (both expected) the social aspect and general camaraderie was great, which is why doing a long tour like this ourselves wouldn’t have been half the fun.

We are glad we did it and have now ticked Norway off our bucket list.

Paul & Helen


S1 Black Forest SelfGuided

“ An excellent trip to the Black Forest. The sat-nav routes provided worked great with our tomtom device. The hotels en route were  clean and comfortable, the sat-nav took us straight to them. The hotel in the Black Forest was excellent - the hosts were very welcoming and the food was lovely - nice to try some authentic German dishes.  Some great biking roads and sightseeing was done during our stay!  Looking forward to our next trip! 

Thanks so much for the organisation and providing all the information we needed, it made the trip so much easier! “




Arctic Circle 2017

Hi Paul

First, thank you both for a truly memorable trip. It was a tremendous experience which I will remember long after I am too old to ride bikes.

The routes were fantastic, the scenery was breath-taking, and Norway was everything I thought it would be, albeit a little damper than I had hoped for.

I have got some good footage of the trip including the underground roundabouts and the Trollstiggen road. When I find the time to do some editing, I will send you a copy. In the meantime, thanks again for such a memorable trip and I hope to see you again sometime.

Best wishes,



Arctic Circle 2017

Hi Paul & Jo,

The Arctic circle holiday was great. As we know the weather wasn't too good but with that you get what you're given. Other than that I had a really good time.

The hotels, trips out, and places we visited were all good, and on the day we visited the Arctic Circle the weather was good so that made the trip there all the better. The whole group got on well from day one, so the evenings at the hotels were a good laigh and great company. As for the roads, they made it all worth while. I'm sure everyone else on the trip had the same experience as me.

Many thanks, and kind regards.



Arctic Circle 2017

Thank you to you both for The Arctic Circle Tour; I will certainly hope to travel with you again!

Best Wishes.

2017 Yellowstone & North by North West USA

What are the ingredients for a great motorcycle tour?

Destination - USA, including Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, Deadwood, Laramie, Glacier National Park, , and the gem that is Mount Rainier, and finishing in Seattle?

Sounds pretty good to me.

Accommodation - all good but all quite different - from rustic in Walden, to free drinks in Orofino!

Bikes - as good as could be expected with a pretty wide choice - very happy with my GS

Routes - destinations are one thing - how you get to them is another. Rod and Julie have obviously researched well and used their local knowledge - Lolo Pass was stunning,  as was Beartooth Pass and I would never have found the routes on my own. All in all the roads were a joy.

Company - outstanding. A fabulous group from the beginning. How do you do it?

Weather - great! Don't understand how you organise that.........

That's it. Ingredients for a great holiday, perfectly presented by MCi. Thanks a million.

I loved it.

Hope all good ! Back from hols safe and sound !

Holiday was excellent, ferry, hotels, routes all perfect could not fault and we loved the hotel  in Pamplona for last night - even had a full body hot air dryer in the shower !

Thank you for organising this for us, great job as always !

2017 Spain and Portugal

Firstly, I would like to thank MCI tours not only for the hospitality both Allister and Fionna gave us all throughout the tour but the great hotels, routes and food that was also supplied while on the tour. The reason I went with a motorcycle tour operator was to take the hassle out of arranging the holiday. I must say I feel that MCI tours surpassed any expectations I had with the tour, the hotels we stayed at were some of the best I have ever experienced, the whole tour was flawless and most enjoyable. I will definitely be looking at Booking with MCI tours in the near future for any further trips and possibly a second this year. 

Jim, Great Yarmouth


Pyrenees & Lot Valley 2017

Hi all

I returned home on Sunday night from my first European motorcycle tour. I had a brilliant time, from the time I booked the tour to the very end when I got off the ferry, the service has been excellent . Colin and June are a credit to your company, the care and attention they showed to every detail on the tour could not have been any better. When I next have a bike touring holiday you will certainly be at the top of my list .

Regards John


S1 Black Forest SelfGuided

We had a brilliant time thanks. The ride out plans you sent were really good. Also we had fantastic weather all the time we were there.

37 degrees on the ride back was a bit hot mind and rode all the way back without gloves! 

Diane especially enjoyed Titisee and Baden Baden. Riding B500 was the best bit for me.

Thinking of doing Hartz Mountain trip next year. 

Kind Regards


PS, Cheshire


Best of Norway - SelfGuided

Hi Julie,

I just wanted to send you an email with a huge thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip!

It all went perfectly, without a single hitch and we both thoroughly enjoyed every second of it.

The hotels were all good, some GREAT and the scenery… stunning although the word just doesn’t begin to convey the scale and beauty of the place. The people were all very helpful too. All in all, we are indebted to your organisation and attention to detail.

We met another couple  who also travelled with you and they said that the accommodation that you found them up near the Atlantic Highway was fantastic - we hadn’t met them at that point, but stumbled on the place they told us about and we had already commented on how beautiful it looked, so you might want to look at adding it to your regular stop overs. :)

The weather was also very good ranging between 9 and 29 degrees! We only really encountered one very wet afternoon, arriving in Voss like drowned rats!! We were dry underneath the bike gear, but the room was rather small and didn’t make drying the kit very easy, we manage ok though :).

I intend to write up an article for our IAM group magazine and will whole-heartedly recommend your company. I’ll send you a copy when it’s done. If you’d like to send me any information that can be included in the report i.e. MCi Tours overview, please feel free to send me something and I’ll try to include that too.

Champagne Tour 2016

Hi Alastair,

We truly enjoyed the tour, 

The locations you took us to were outstanding  

The quality of the accommodation was fantastic. 

The food was amazing 

The entertainment,  including your musical abilities were a treat 

The friendliness of the group your company attracted to the tour was pleasing 

The best thing for me was that we felt that we were looked after. Thanks for you extra help with my hire bike at the start of the tour.

Alena commented that,  bar our Caribbean cruise holidays,  your Swiss tour  turned out to be her  best holiday ever!   The cruises only came first due to the fact she can not normally get up before 11:00 :-)    But that said,   the flexibility in relation to how we were allowed  to spend our days ment that she realy enjoyed herself. 

 I enjoyed the bike riding 

So it was an all round great holiday. 

Please pass on our thanks to the rest of your team. 

Kind regards 

Alena &  Michael

Swiss Passes, Black Forest, and Champagne - 2016

Dear Fionna, Alastair, Jo, Paul and Julie

It's incredible that it's a week since we started off for the ferry back to England after that great tour. I just wanted to say thanks to you all for such a fab time. The riding, scenery, company and food made it all work so well and gave me the most fun I have had on my bike. Your consistent effort to ensure all went smoothly was much appreciated.

Hope to see you again in 2017.

Best wishes

Swiss Passes, Black Forest, and Champagne - July 2016

We have been on approx 12 tours with several companies, and this tour was very much the best. This was thanks to the organisation, the way Paul & Jo lead the tour, and the way they took the trouble to spend time with everyone making us all feel included.

The ride out over the passes in Switzerland was fabulous, and was the best day ever on the bike for us.

Derek and Sandy, Wells.



I just wanted to let you know I’m back in rather cold and quiet Northumberland sitting in front of my log fire.

Thank you both so much for a memorable tour which will stay with me forever.

I felt you pulled out all the stops to give everyone a fabulous time.

That takes energy , conviction and sincerity, and I really appreciate it.

It was truly fab

S1 Black Forest Self-Guided

Just got back this afternoon from our trip.

Very many thanks for organising this for us it was everything we had wished for.

The Hotels were spot on, the hotel was fine both on the way to the Black Forest and on the return trip, we even had the same lovely room.The owners and their staff made us most welcome and having  an undercover place to store the bike was also really nice.

The Black Forest Hotel was brilliant, really lovely spacious room with its own private balcony with lovely views of the Forest and huge comfy bed.

The food was excellent with a good choice every night.

The crowning glory for us with this Hotel was the exceptional way we were treated by both the owners and the staff.

Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to help when we had a small problem with the bike, even finding a triumph dealership nearby that would look at the problem for us and phoning and translating for us, brilliant.

We had use of the lockup garage at night, just another nice touch.

The routes and rideouts you sent us were great I programmed them into my sat nav and off we went.

Excellent accommodation , the new chef is brilliant,  superb food, friendly and helpful owners. Undercover bike parking. Both stays there excellent.


Black Forest

Excellent hotel 10 out of 10 on all accounts. 

Brilliant staff, very helpful . Secure parking in the owners garage.  Swimming lake great after a hot day riding.

New Zealand 2015

I wanted to drop you a brief note to say a big thank you for organising a wonderful tour of New Zealand South Island. This is my 5th MCI Tour to date and the best yet. The organisation was spot on, the itinerary was perfect for getting a feel for the wonderful places and scenery that New Zealand has to offer. The daily mileages were comfortable and the New Zealanders are some of the friendliest I have met on any travels. The hotels and food (especially the Carrot Cake......) were superb and thanks for arranging perfect weather for the tour!


As my time in New Zealand draws to an end I am genuinely reluctant to leave this wonderful country.

Ray C., Basingstoke


New Zealand 2015

I can say this was with out the best motorcycle trip I have ever been on.

Good scenery hotels food and riders who became friends.

 Excellent information and guidance from Alister  and Fiona took us to parts and roads we would have missed

 The motorcycles were excellent well maintained with good size panniers to carry the goodies.

 I would recommend this tour and company to anyone who wanted to visit new Zealand for the time of their life.

Greece Tour 2014

Your Greece Tour was definitely one of the best holidays we've had thanks to your planning and attention to detail that gave us an itinerary of full and interesting days. The daily mix of riding, sight seeing, brew and lunch stops plus meals and drinks in the evenings was spot on.

Thanks again for a brilliant holiday,

Hi Julie,

We are now back home after an amazing trip.The hotels were excellent and your routes superb.

During the three weeks we were away from home we had a couple hours rain in Denmark and

a morning north of Trondheim,how good is that.

Thank you very much for organising what for me is now top of my foreign holidays,

Best wishes,

Corsica & Sardinia 2014

I just wanted to drop you an email thanking you both for a wonderful 12 days touring Corsica & Sardinia as I missed the opportunity to thank you face to face last night or this morning. Having developed a cold during the run up through Sardinia & Corsica and failing to sleep during the crossing to Toulon, I really just wanted to dose myself up and get into bed. I got an early start this morning and managed to board an early ferry to Dover so now sit at home feeling tired but fulfilled at having experienced a wonderful 12 days.
I would like to compliment you both for your organisation and management style, being thorough but not controlling allowing individuals the flexibility to "do their own thing" or "run with the pack" if so desired.

Thank you both once again and I am sure we will meet up again in the future.



Corsica & Sardinia 2014

Now we are back and getting sorted - just a quick message to say thank you both for our holiday in Corsica and Sardinia, What changed this from a long tour into a great holiday was the organisation, routes, locations, but most of all the friendly atmosphere which you generated with great enthusiasm, fun, and humour. This permeated into the tour group, making it more like a long ride-out with old and now new friends.

 Thanks again for everything and take care.

Phill & Andrea


Corsica & Sardinia 2014

Just to let you know that I enjoyed the Corsica and Sardinia trip this month immensely.  I have done trips with a least four other organisers and have enjoyed them all but this one was the best.  The arrangements were excellent and we were given lots of information.  One of the highlights were the other guys on the trip.  It was my first MCi trip but I found quite a few kindred spirits right away!  Keep up the good work and hope to see you again soon!

JA, Powys


California Dreaming and Route 66 2013

I would just like to say what a fabulous time I had on the trip. I'm struggling to find fault with anything. Your guides, Rod and Julie, were spot on. Just the right amount of guiding and 'directing' all round. The phase 'Herding cats' readily comes to mind concerning some people. Rod certainly knows his roads and without that knowledge I would never had seen half of what I saw.

The sights were stupendous. Forget cresting the Great Canyon in a helicopter? Never. But not all sights are magnificent as that. I really loved stopping at a dusty diner in the middle of Nowhereville and eating coconut creme pie, drinking coffee served by a waitress who looked as though she had been there since 1950, desert dried until she had the look of a human prune. Real America. And that brings you to the people. Real Americans with real lives. All brilliant with real live stories of their surroundings. I suppose one conversation about Ipswich Town FC in the 70's was a bit surreal but conversation is a two way street. My hope that we would see the 'Other' America was fulfilled, or maybe on reflection only just awakened to just how much more there is remaining to be seen.

Of course no back patting and ego boosting would be complete with mentioning MCi for all their hard work in making this a Bucket List experience. And that means those office bound folk that deal with the nuts and bolts of touring without the glamour of crossing continents.

R Sterry


Arizona, Utah & Monument Valley 2013

As for the tour it’s self it exceeded all my expectation all the hotel/motels were good, the riding was excellent with the scenery & National park outstanding. Having Rod & Julie as guides was great too, their expert knowledge of the roads travelled, places to visit the National Parks was outstanding, their care & customer service was second to none. It all seems very easy to jump on a motorcycle & go touring but I’m sure a lot of preparation & hard work goes into organizing a tour such as this, they also have background knowledge of each National Park & places we stopped & visited.

Route 66 2013

My expectations were surpassed by the day. This tour had been my dream for many years and it did not fail to impress and we have many life lasting memories of a great ride on a great road with great people. MCI’s passion to impress is obvious.

Thank you ever so much again for the Romania Tour - I can honestly say it was one of the best tours I have been on. I was well impressed with the organisation, the attention to detail and the lengths you personally went to to assure everyone's safety and well being!! I'll certainly be coming with you again!!



Spain and Portugal Tour 2013

Thank you both  great riding experience great hotel stops. Alastair what a lovely ride could follow your line all day long in fact I did on a couple occasions  as the saying goes you both made a old man very Happy

looking forward to my next ride  with you  Well done MCi Tours 



Spain and Portugal Tour 2013

Many thanks to you and Alastair for arranging and leading a fabulous trip. We were a bit apprehensive as we had not been on a bike trip for many years and are rebuilding our experience on 2 wheels. Also we have not been to Portugal before and were very pleased with the experience. I thought Switzerland had all the bendy roads until this trip!


Regarding mci - you provided the environment and the flexibility to the group to enable everyone to enjoy the trip at the pace they were comfortable with and no one was under pressure to keep up. You also cared for us well ensuring we got to where we had to in good time.

Thank you and kind regards.


Richard and Suzanne


Route 66 2012

Just to say what a wonderful journey on Route 66, we both thought it was outstanding, so well organised and a great bunch of people, the highlights The Meat Market, the shooting at the gun range in Albercerque , the rodeo, Gary's place, Grand Canyon, the Angeles Crest Highway ! to name but a few. Also a some cracking roads.
And of course the service and hospitality of everyone we met along the way.

Kevin and Margaret


Route 66 2012

I had told all my Friends that doing a RT 66 tour across the USA was a dream, the trip of a lifetime. Well, it was ! Hands down, I had the time of my life ! I can't say enough about our tour guides; Alister, Fionna, Trey, Ellen, Rod, & Julie were fantastic. The tour was very well planned, every day had an itinerary and a goal. But we could still improvise if we wished, and we did several times. We really got into the heartland of America, things you never see or experience zooming past on the interstate. Museums, old-time restaurants, gas stations, stores, etc. And the scenery: we didn't just see it, we 'experienced' it; from mountain peaks to desert plains, it was real, hands-on.

So if anyone asks "Can a British company do a decent tour of America?", I will answer "Absolutely ! Take their RT 66 tour, I guarantee you won't be disappointed !"

Just a line to say many thanks for what was our best tour with MCI to date. All the tours we have had with you have been great but this one was the icing on the cake. Ten out of ten for the the effort you both put into making it a success and  making sure we all saw plenty of interesting sites / routes. Thoroughly enjoyed your company and before you reach for the sick bag I will sign out.

Norway Self Guided

Hello Julie,
Just a quick note to thank you for organising our trip to Norway.
It all ran very smoothly, all the Hotels were excellent and the route gave us a great mix of all the superb scenery. We loved it and definitely plan to go back at some point and maybe head further North. Almost consistently dry and sunny weather helped as I think we had 1 fairly wet day in 13, so that was an unexpected bonus! Early June is clearly the time to go, still quiet in terms of tourists and chance of great weather.

Thanks again

Dear Julie,


Sorry about the delay in getting back to you with some feedback about our recent holiday in France – things have been a bit hectic since we got home and the time has just flown. However, I've now completed the questionnaire you sent us and it's in the post. This is by way of a more personal reflection on our holiday experience – if any of it's useful for testimonial purposes in any way please feel free to use it as you will. Also I apologise in advance for it's length – my original intention had been a quick note but how do you encapsulate a fantastic 14 days into one page, so I gave up and just wrote what I felt. And even now it's probably not done it justice, however...

Firstly let me say straight away, we had an absolutely wonderful holiday due in no small part to the way MCi organised and planned it. Every aspect of the MCi content went like clockwork and V and I would have no hesitation in using your planning service again and are already recommending it to our friends.

All that remains is for us to send a very big thank you to MCi Tours for providing us with one of the best holidays we've ever had – and an especial thank you to you, Julie, for having the patience to listen so carefully to what we wanted and then taking such care in making it happen.

Assen TT 2009

I want to take this oppotunity to say thank you for a great trip to the Dutch TT, I really enjoyed the whole experience. Well done.
Thanks also Julie for all her help. It's always a good start when there is a friendly voice on the end of the phone and nothing was too much trouble to help a 'first timer' like me.
I hope to be able to tour with you again in the future.



Black Forest, Bavaria & Champagne Tour 2011

Hi, just a quick note to thank-you both for another great tour around the Black Forest, Bavaria and the Champagne region.
We both had a really enjoyable time (despite the distractions from home) and the people on the tour, were, as ever, a pleasure to get to know.
Hopefully you both had a good (and safe) journey home, sorry we missed you on the ferry, but we just dumped ourselves on the first chairs we found. I’ll be waiting in eager anticipation to see what is finalised later this year .
We’ll see you at the NEC if not before and hopefully on a tour (or 2) next year

Self guided Pyrenees & Picos

A progress note on tour, have arrived at hotel in the Picos de Europa .
I was looked after very well in the Pyrenees , excellent meal on my arrival, and I was even taxied into town when required, had the place to myself no other guests , so although it was not en-suite I still had the choice of 3 loos and two bathrooms. P seems to know all the best chefs in town, every place he recommended was full when I got there, Will have rideouts tomorrow from what I have seen of biking roads when I came into Picos range looks every bit of good as your info says it is.

We made sure we told all the people we met that we were travelling with MCi Tours and what a great company you are.

Thanks again, from a very satisfied customer.

Pyrenees - Self Guided

An Italian and a Brit Enjoy The Pyrenees. Two years ago my brother in law Mick and myself without any plan, travel insurance, or accommodation loaded up our bikes with camping gear and clothes and took a Ferry from Portsmouth to Santander. Well long story short it was a bit of a disaster. No plan and too many decisions to make in a strange country were too much. Not deterred we planned to return but this time we would ride down through France spend 5 days in the Pyrenees and 2 days riding through Spain and get the Santander ferry back home. Experience told us planning was all, and we decided to try out MCI Tours. This turned out to be the best decision we could have made.



Self Guided Tailor Made Tour

The central location of most of the hotels was great as once you park the bike up you don't want to get it out again to go into towns.  Secure parking was also appreciated. We were all very satisfied with the services you provided.  Well done!

Self Guided Tailor Made Tour

Overall a memorable and great biking tour.  My thanks to Julie/Alastair for all the arrangements.  I was impressed with the weather you laid on for us!

Self Guided - Germany & Scandinvia

I recently did a Self Guided tour to Germany & Scandinavia, but the highlight of the tour was definitely the Harz Mountains.  The roads and the scenery are fantastic and if you like riding bendy roads, like me, I cannot recommend this tour enough.  The B&B is in a perfect position for riding out from.  The village is really nice with plenty of restaurants to eat out at and shops for the ladies. There are plenty of historic places with castles and picturesque houses but for me it was the thrill of riding the bends!  All in all fantastic!

California Tour 2011

We would just like to say to you both what a brilliant holiday we had and what a lovely group of friends we have made. 

Thank you both again for being such brilliant guides and lovely people and hopefully we will see you on another tour

California tour 2010

Sincere thanks from frank and myself for a fantastic trip the itinery was good but the hosts yourself and julie were even better consummate professionals never tiring in your quest to keep us safe ontime and well informed, a brilliant job indeed.



Transylvania 2011

I did my presentation to the Probus Men's Club in December and they were so impressed with your tour of Romania and Hungary and how you were so informative. A lot of them are war veterons are were intrigued with our visit to Hitler's Parade ground,the concentration camp and the Palace we stayed in in Vienna. I just want to thank you again for making my adventure more interesting and so memorable. (They said that I was an excellent speaker because I embraced my trip and that I must have had wonderful and inspirational tour guides. Only one old guy did the nod but I talked for an hour and had everyone's attention.)
I am looking forwards to future tours with you.

Transylvania Tour 2011

Back to work now and the memories of the tour are slipping from my ageing mind, whilst I do still recall the wonderful time I had, with yourself (too short a time though) Alastair and all the group, I would like to say thanks for organising this (probably) once in a lifetime trip to these foreign lands, accommodation and food were excellent, the time and effort put into sourcing hotels etc has certainly been a bonus, knowing at the end of a sometimes long day we can rest up and enjoy our evening meal.

Sachsenring MotoGP 2011

Both Jeff and me would like to thank you Tom, we thought you did a great job, you made us feel very comfortable, you was extremely approachable, if we had any worries or problems we felt confident that we could come to you and you would help any way possible. We had a great laugh as you said on and certainly of the road, it was a fantastic group and we feel privileged to have met such great people.

Cath and Jeff


New Zealand 2011

Many, many thanks for providing a great trip which we thoroughly enjoyed and are so glad we chose.We had a wonderful time, the scenery was fantastic, the roads brilliant, the weather good and all the people we met were so friendly and helpful.

The bike was well prepared, used little oil and never missed a beat.

Thanks to Julie for all the extra work getting around the Christchurch problems. Fionna, your selection of hotels and B&Bs was just right; we found the nine days from Russell to Te Anau a bit much but we're not sure how you could have found another two nighter during that period after the earthquake.

Alastair, the roads are brilliant; while any isolated bits have their match in Europe and America, the fact that you can go 80 - 90% of the day on great roads is just unique.  We also loved the isolation.

We very soon learnt that you can't afford to pass a cafe expecting another down the road - the next place could be 50 or 80 miles away.  In 330 miles from Queenstown to Greymouth there's only one place that could be called a town and miles of beautiful open country and mountains.
