Testimonials

Here's what our customers have to say.

I have been meaning to thank you for your professional assistance in moving my motorcycle from Southampton to Los Angeles….Ventura. This is the most professional experience I have had in the 3 years I spent in the UK. I would highly recommend your company to anyone wanting an easy time with moving their bike overseas. Bike arrived in perfect condition and there were NO surprises along the way, due to your attention to detail.

Guy Pain, 2010 - Shipping

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

To say that my trip was an incredible experience is a gross understatement. I would recommend these tours to any bike enthusiast, they will love it.

Kevin Schwantz - Australia Off Road

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

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

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

…. 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

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

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

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

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 am enjoying the ride from Vancouver to Montreal on my BMW R1150R.  The staff in the air freight departments at Manchester and Vancouver were friendly and efficient and many thanks for all your help!

P Springer - Shipping

I would love to come back. Went to Vietnam for spring holiday and I was just thinking about time I went back to Thailand and finish the final bit of the 12 day enduro ! That 6 days up north was the best experience I have had on a bike in my life. Still trying to get permission from the wife but I am working on it.

Neil Davis - Thailand - Enduro Tours

We had the holiday of a lifetime: Christmas in Singapore, New Year in Australia and most importantly 2 fabulous weeks in New Zealand. Whilst the weather was a little cooler than normal for January, the sights, sounds and vibrancy of South Island more than made up for it. The Triumph was ready and waiting for us, and the guys at Te Waipounamu motorcycles were helpful and friendly beyond expectations. We covered rising 3,000km of trouble free, spectacular miles and grew very attached to the little Tiger.

Our accommodation was wonderful, but special note has to go to the distillery homestead in the Cardrona valley. The views were stunning and the welcome warm and genuine. Over a very nice bottle of wine, we talked about bikes, the Islands, Christchurch (where they used to live) and everything in between. At the end of a very wet day’s riding this was very special.

Would we go back? Yes. Definitely.

Andy Corteen, 2017 - New Zealand

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

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

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

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

A truly memorable experience that I would recommend to anyone.

Graham Dumphy, 2009 - New Zealand

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
