The Group in Luxembourg – a great group & glorious weather made for another fun tour.

Street decorations in Calais

Morning coffee stop

“Hi John, I just wanted to repeat my thanks for a really great tour. Every aspect of it was spot on – the accommodation, the locations and the roads were all exactly as I would have wished for on this type of tour. And even when the occasional thing went awry – road closure and Andy’s misdirection – you dealt with it brilliantly.

And while I’ve said this before, I think the drop-off system was ideal in that it allowed us all to ride at our own pace. For me that meant experiencing the scenery as much as the roads. If you have the opportunity please pass on my thanks to Martin & Helen for doing a great job as back-markers. Cheers and safe riding”

So who DIDN’T see the huge wild boar ???

Hi John & Jen, Alayne and I don’t have enough kind words to describe this adventure. We flew over from the USA and really didn’t know what to expect. The roads were nothing short of spectacular and the hotels were all great. Alayne really loved the one in Cochem, Germany, central to the boat tours and castle, and she’s the boss so who am I to argue! The ride into Cochem and the endless wineries on the mountains were magnificent! All of the riders were so friendly and just a great group of folks. It seemed like there was a little surprise at every destination at the end of a long day of riding, we often wondered how it could get any better! We are looking forward to another great adventure in 2025!”

Our hotel is next to…

Europe’s largest fort

Dinner is included tonight

“I was on the 5 nights in 4 countries tour in June, it was an amazing experience led by John. My favourite roads were in Germany, the road surface there gives you so much confidence in the corners and it gave my VFR800f a good workout in the hairpins. I’m definitely booking another tour for next year.” [Ben’s 5* Google review – thanks Ben!]

Ben Hunter, 1st tour, Honda VFR800F, Essex

John has an announcement…

Reece has done 10 trips!

“I have run out of superlatives to describe the tours J&J run. This one, the 5 X 4, was no exception. Well organised, great roads, great hotels, great food, great riding and of course, great company. The included meals (3) were excellent and the breakfasts at the hotels pretty good too – although I cannot comment on them all because I admit to abstaining on a couple –  for an extra hour in bed!

Reece Compton, 10th tour, Ducati Multistrada V4, Essex

What a fab view


The group in the Belgian Ardennes

“This is my second tour this year with BN Tours and it was exceptional. The pre tour phone call from John to ensure I had received the tour pack and answer any questions was typical of the professionalism in which the tour was conducted. All hotels and food included was of a very high quality, the group was great fun and the roads – well they were some of the best roads I’ve ever ridden on. Honestly I couldn’t have asked for, or imagined more. This for me was brilliant and I loved every minute of it.” [Marcus’ 5* Google review – Thanks!]

Marcus James, 2nd tour, Ducati Multistrada V4, Berkshire

Coffee stop here

Lovely scenery in the Ardennes…

For those who didn’t see it!!!

“My god ’tis surely a trek up to the tunnel from Cornwall. After that, I found the Tour mileage was insignificant! This lad has completed 11 tours and every one has been a pleasure. The new venue for our last night in Dinant supplied the best steak I have had in a long while. My thanks to John for all the problem-solving that each trip seems to throw at him – did you miss Jen!

You must be good as I will be 86 next year and hope to be with you once again. Thanks to all the good people on the Tour with a special thanks to my roommate Vince Farmer for sharing with this old duffer. It was great”

“Stoner”, 11th tour, KTM 790 Adventure, Cornwall

Some great roads

More fab roads in Luxembourg

“This is my third trip with BN European Tours and on this occasion I took the 5 Nights & 4 Countries Tour. This was also my first opportunity to use the bike after its winter sleep. There is clearly a lot of planning that goes into the tours by John and Jen and it shows.

Meeting new people on each trip is a bonus and the marker system works well with riders of all abilities, even if on one occasion people may have been sent the wrong way…this may or may not have been partly my fault…however quickly resolved!

Accommodation is excellent and the riding was great as always, the price is well pitched and the whole package is highly recommended. Looking forward to another next year.” [Andy’s 5* Google review – thanks!]

The group & the castle at Vianden

Eric & Alayne

“Hi Both, Lindy and I really enjoyed the tour except for maybe one group photo (ouch). The tour content was great as were the routes. We could not fault the hotels and food . I think I’m not alone in thinking that some days especially when there were unforeseen circumstances that the afternoon coffee break could have been ditched and replaced with a quick refuel and a drink of water and move on so as to get to the hotel a little earlier. But hey still loved it. Can’t wait to do another tour next year and I’ll probably catch up with you at the bike show. All the best”
