Testimonials

Here's what our customers have to say.

The New Zealand trip was fantastic. From start to finish and I include the booking procedure, it was just brilliant. The Tour Book was just wonderful, so comprehensive and covered everything. The routes, together with the various options were first class and I managed to clock up almost 6000km without a hitch.

Andy W, 2016 - New Zealand

I just want to thank you and everyone associated for a brilliant holiday. Truly we had a wonderful time, one which we will never forget. It was some of the best money we have ever spent!

Des & Sue Moloney, 2015 - New Zealand

This has been an amazing trip! Bhutan is a truly fascinating country …and we had some fantastic motorcycle riding – sometimes a bit hairy! The accommodation was far better than I had anticipated, and everyone we met was very friendly. Much of the success of the trip is due to our excellent guide, Alam. He was always cheerful, always helpful and he had a very strong feeling of responsibility for the group. His knowledge of the country and its culture, and him speaking the language helped a lot. We learned a lot about India from him. Also our Bhutanese guide, Bhim, was a cheerful and positive chap, who freely gave from his vast knowledge about Bhutan. So this trip has been one of my best journeys – so far… I just might come back for more!

Ulf Leander, Sweden, 2010 - Bhutan - Thunder Dragon Adventure

I have enjoyed the hospitality of Walter and Joang on two separate visits to Thailand, I found the enduro tours great fun, great company and a very relaxed atmosphere, every day an adventure…. I would recommend the experience to any rider regardless of experience

Deano - Thailand - Enduro Tours

Of course there are other countries with glorious, awe-inspiring sights but what New Zealand offers is all of it, bunched together, with quite unparalleled accessibility…
I am almost ashamed to admit that on none of my long journeys around the world did I enjoy riding as much as I did on this trip. So, great time, great people, great experience.

Ted Simon, 2010 - New Zealand

I was on the Himalayan High-Roads tour that departed on 15/8. Every aspect of the tour surpassed my expectations, and even went beyond what I’d hoped. In particular Alam was faultless as a tour guide, providing lots of interesting information, useful advice and was a pleasure to be around. The tour was exceptionally well-planned, with rest-stops and free-days exactly when needed. Accommodation was pleasant and the route was both beautiful and terrifying (in a good way!). An utterly wonderful experience – thank you.

Oliver Keers, 2016 - India

The last of the great wild places on earth

The Wilderness Society - Australia Off Road

Considering you only had two weeks’ notice of my travelling plans, I was impressed how the booking of flights and additional hotel stays in Hong Kong were all done in good time. Many thanks for this – a truly memorable experience!

Martin Evans, 2015 - Thailand/Laos

A truly memorable experience that I would recommend to anyone.

Graham Dumphy, 2009 - New Zealand

New Zealand was great – it felt like stealing an extra summer, I always hate riding in February in the UK as I don’t like snow or ice.

Gordon Windham, 2015 - New Zealand

I just wanted to thank you …. for providing such a well-fettled BMW 650GS. It clocked up 5,500kms with no oil top-up and no chain adjustment required. The weather was good too!

Jeff Hawkes, 2010 - New Zealand - Rentals

The tour was fantastic, everything was perfectly planned and very enjoyable. The scenery, people, bikes and activities planned made it much more than a biking holiday. Rick has done an excellent job of preparing each day so that all thinks that we did, saw and experienced meant that it felt that we were away for a month, not just two weeks! He’s really taken time to plan the tours to make sure that we got the best of everything, and saw as much as possible to get a flavour of the Philippines. I’ll certainly recommend this tour to our pals.

John Baxendale and Vicki Hirst, 2005 - Philippines - Mindoro and Lake Taal

Words cannot explain the customer service we received from (guides) Marc and Eric. They took care of us every step of the way…. Truly an incredible experience!!

Tish & Kevin Rigg

Thanks to you and your team for arranging our bike hire, it couldn’t have been easier. Bikes were fabulous. I am sure we will be back in touch in the future but thanks again. I will certainly recommend you guys.

Jean & Nick, 2016 - New Zealand - Rentals

Every aspect of the tour, bike hire, accommodation, the excellent tour book and last but not least, the routes were fantastic. Every day produced new scenery, experiences and outstanding riding roads, I can’t wait to return someday.

Michael Hamilton, 2017 - New Zealand

…. yet another fantastic tour from HC Travel!
This has been a life-changing holiday – the perfect combination of adventure (lots of!), awesome scenery, brilliant company and a privileged glimpse into a refreshingly untainted country and culture.
The Royal Enfields never missed a beat or let us down even when the conditions became a ‘bit’ demanding! They really are the perfect bike for this trip and we can’t imagine any better way of seeing Bhutan. We cannot praise the team enough. Alam was a joy, an amazing tour leader, passionate about his job, fantastic company and he took 100% good care of us – a great guy. Bhim, our lovely-natured, bike-loving Bhutanese guide, taught us so much about his wonderful country, culture and people, and he went out of his way to be helpful. We felt privileged to have spent time with Alam, Bhim and the excellent Team and to have had such an insight into their lives.

Mark and Kate Chittenden, UK, 2010 - Bhutan - Thunder Dragon Adventure

BMW Club Tour of Spain: on recommendation, we asked HC Travel to arrange the bookings for the BMW Club Southern Section tour of Northern Spain. We planned the locations and presented them to HC with a brief including a budget with 3/4 Star hotels. The resulting tour was a seamless joy with excellent hotels and even arranging tickets for the Aragon round of the MotoGP included. As novice tour organisers with 13 people in our party, the HC service was exactly what we needed and even when things beyond our control went awry, David Grist went the extra mile to help. A 5 Star service throughout.

Bob Melvin, 2018 - Spain, custom services

I believe that one would have to search high, low & far to find a better tour leader than Alam who was most ably supported by his driver and mechanic – both quiet, but most responsible guys, who ensured that the bikes were ready to roll each morning, and always in show-room condition!

Trevor Millett (ex-professional tour guide), UK, 2011

I can’t speak too highly of the guides …
(3rd tour with H-C Travel, returned to ride the Cape Classic again in 2015)

David Sykes, 2011 - South Africa - Cape Classic

Just returned from Bhutan trip had an amazing time, for me the journey of a lifetime. If anyone likes curry, mountains and motorbikes this is the trip to go on – even the beer is a banging stuff. Big thank you to all who made it possible and special thanks to Alam who ran the trip like clockwork.

Syd Turner, UK, 2012 - Bhutan - Thunder Dragon Adventure
