Pegasus Bridge raised just for Bike Normandy guests! 

“Thank you for an extremely well organized WW2 Tour. I am not used to riding with other people but your marker system allowed me to ride at my own pace and yet be part of the group as well. I cannot recommend you enough as this was my first European trip and I felt completely at ease. Many thanks for a great time – I will be back”  

Steve Jones, BMW GS8OO 

  

Stroll round the ramparts at La Rochelle 

 “Bonjour John & Jen. Well, what can I say? Just an amazing trip, riding with good people on fabulous roads, but over too soon! I can’t thank you enough for a great holiday and showing us what France has to offer…please DO NOT change the way you do things, it really is pretty perfect as it is…”    

 Dave Washington, BMW 1200 GS 

 

Parking with the Mayor’s permission at La Roche Bernard! 

 “Just wanted to drop you a few lines to say thank you for the wonderful six days WW2 Tour I just had with you. The riding, the roads and all the sites we visited were fantastic. You both put a lot of effort into researching the trip and running it which shows in the great fun and enjoyment we all had. Don’t change anything you are doing, you’ve got it right!”      

Geoff Newnham, Triumph Street Triple 

 

  Plenty of time to visit the “Martyr Village” at Oradour-sur-Glane 

 “I went on this Tour not sure what to expect as I’ve never been on a bike tour before. Thoughts of flying down motorways and dual carriageways never materialised, only a beautiful mix of winding and open country roads. Did not imagine how good it was going to be. I would like to thank you both for a fantastic six days, I cannot think of a time that I have enjoyed so much. We had the weather, good roads, great sites, great company and fantastic hosts. And I am convinced that even if the weather did not hold out we would still have enjoyed the run.  Again, thanks for a great time!” . Will definitely be back! Whatever you do, do not change the formula!
