MOTORCYCLE TOUR REVIEWS
We think we organise and run the best tours available anywhere, but don’t just take our word for it. We pride ourselves on using the independent review platform Hootvox to survey every one of our clients, so why not see what they have to say …
Our Motor Bike Tour with Magellan has been an amazing life time experience. Magellan has a fantastic informative website, the quality and professionalism of this business is second to none. Communication has been outstanding from beginning to end of our experience. The tour was well planned in terms of destinations, accuracy of timings, food and accommodation.
Excellent communication and planning Fantastic destinations Great food and accommodation Enthusiastic Tour Guide, knowledgeable, patient and demonstrated great people skill.
Everything was organised in a way that made for a relaxing holiday. The daily itinerary, Sat Nav routes and pre-trip information were excellent, I have done a few organised trips abroad and the level of information provided was First Class. Coming from the north I chose not to go by eurotunnel so took the ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge and made the trip to the first hotel with no problems. The routes provided made for a more scenic route away from the motorways. Felix was a first class guide and made sure everyone knew what was involved each day with a brief during breakfast. Accommodation and food throughout the trip was excellent, the group all got on well with each other it was interesting hearing stories over dinner from others of their adventures on and off the bike.
Going on tour with a group of strangers was, for me, something of a leap into the unknown, but, on the basis that ‘you’ll never know until you try’ I paid my money and signed up for the Picos Tour of Northern Spain and Portugal. I have to say that I enjoyed the company of all of the other participants, I very much enjoyed the tour, the roads and chosen routes, the accommodation, the sights, the riding, the food and the camaraderie that was built up, with the others, over the eleven day outing. It was great fun, so much so that I’ve now booked for the Corsica trip in July & also the Croatia trip in September. I thoroughly, from my previous experience, recommend Magellan Motorcycle Tours…the guy who runs it and makes it all possible: Felix Billington is a top bloke, an excellent facilitator to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Very professional. Great system for directions including waypoints to keep you on the best roads. Very caring, possitive and all inclusive attitude. Nothing was ever too much trouble and every attention to detail was made to make everyone feel included, happy and confident. Briefings were useful especially for local knowledge, specific laws for each country and local do’s and don’ts. I will definitely go on more trips with this touring group. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
My second tour this year with MMT. Throughly enjoyable and a great mix of characters, bikesand roads on both tours.
Well planned routes with a variety of road types. Great to have all the routes sent before the trip and downloaded onto the sat nav.
Tours like this don’t just happen, Felix and the team must have worked & researched very hard. The mountains and gorges were stunning, that and a brilliant group of like minded bikers were the highlights. Felix “the great” is a star. He took special care of me when I went down with a bug despite not feeling great himself. That was very much appreciated!
Excellent!! 5* Fantastic trip with heaps of great memories that will last a lifetime, everything from the routes to the daily banter was superb. Can’t wait to get away again. Magellan went above and beyond and I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.
Fantastic group, Scenery mindblowing, good food great hotels what more could you want.
Well organised Good hotels Detailed routes and maps Excellent meals Full detailed itinerary Always there to help nothing Is to much trouble the list of good points is endless.
Now done two tours and will be booking again. Think that says enough!
Friendly, laid back approach. Good value for money. Excellent choice of routes. Group size not too large. Leader knows his stuff, where to ride, where to stop and eat, where to refuel etc.
Excellent holiday – so good I’ve booked another!
Felix had done excellent research of the routes and hotels. He was always there to help should you wish help but was not like a chaperone.
We had a fantastic tour with Felix, riding through the Alps,stopping at lake Garda for 3 nights and working our way back through Frace, Felix was very helpful where getting over any language barrier was concerned, we also enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know them, will tour with Magellan again.
We can’t praise Magellan enough, Felix in particular. We toured great roads, through some beautiful countryside and the Hotel stays were all excellent. The organisation was first class and Felix, our tour guide went out of his way to be helpful, his knowledge of the routes and his multi-lingual skills coming in very useful. A fantastic trip. We’d love to go again..
Small, like-minded, easy-going group. Great tour leader – calm, experienced, affable. Good company all round made for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Meticulously put together motorcycle tour, ensuring that it all came together perfectly on each of the eleven days. The planning, research, hard work, and lots and lots of effort pre-tour, and during the tour by the guide/owner made my holiday one that I will never forget. Amazing scenery, roads, routes, coffee stops, excellent hotels with marvellous food, at a very reasonable price.
Everything was wonderful. Great routes day after day. We were very fortunate that our weather was good. Obviously that can’t be controlled. Felix did a great job of assessing the various riding skills and assisted when and where needed.
Fantastic organisation and leadership by Felix Billington. He sorted out all problems due to satnav/ intercom/breakdowns in a calm and efficient manner, making even the least experienced tourer feel comfortable and in control. I particularly appreciated the ability to set off on my own and catch up with the others later, as being on a big old Harley, my gearing wasn’t always conducive to group riding, particularly at slower speeds. I’m sure the others saw this as antisocial behaviour on my part, but it really wasn’t! The mix of male/female riders and pillions was a big plus, as it made for a very relaxed atmosphere. Some tours can be a bit ‘balls-out macho see how many miles we can do in a day’ contests of endurance, whereas Magellan got the distances between stops just right. The fact that nearly all the meals were included was a big plus, as it made budgeting a lot easier, though surprisingly some of the worst food was at the poshest hotels! (But that’s just my opinion of course! ). Overall, great roads, great weather, great company.. .. What more could you ask? Would I do it again? Tomorrow!!!
Using sat navs makes you free from the pack or not if you wish. Guide was v good with sat nav problems. Guide was v good with languages Hotels good Some meals included in price means that we all sit together a few times.
A fantastically well planned and smoothly run holiday. It was so easy, just pack the bike, climb on, follow your sat-nav and check in! Having a knowledgeable and experienced guide available gives you the security to explore without worrying and the opportunity to see little known places that you wouldn’t find yourself. The social aspect of sharing the experience with a group doubles the enjoyment!
Magellan are simply the best. You are looked after really well, nothing is too much trouble. More importantly they make the tour great fun, interesting and pick some of the best roads in Europe for biking.
This is the first organised tour we have tried. The organisation was first class, good hotels, good food, good company, fantastic scenery and roads. We were with a group of very friendly, likeminded motorcyclists. Everywhere we went and almost without exception, everyone was welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to be helpfull. Our tour guide deserves a medal for his patience and fortitude, always keen to help, a wiz with the satnav and a linguist to boot. The trip was over all too soon, we’re saving for another.
Lot’s of information before & during the trip. Good locations/itinerary. Great group of people on the tour willing to share experiences and help each other out when necessary. No pressure to keep up with the group. You could do everything at your own pace. Tour guide was always there for help and advice.
