The group after riding a fab section of the B500 – a great group with many regulars & some newbies too.
“Hi John and Jen, well where does one start on providing feedback on one of the most memorable trips we’ve had on a motorcycle holiday. In two words – bloody fantastic!!! You achieved everything as described on your web site and above and beyond, we were overwhelmed with the attention to detail ( I’m a great admirer of attention to detail!!).

The Tour de France is coming!!
Our tour starts in Calais
“I have toured a lot of Europe on two wheels in the past but previously with a friend so this was my first organised tour. As I was on my own this time I thought that riding with the same people each day would be more sociable. If I’m honest I was doubtful whether the lack of freedom would suit me however, I confess, I had a great time. The riding pace was fast enough without putting any pressure on anyone and the support van to take the luggage was more of a bonus than I thought it would be.
I also did a little research beforehand and B.N tours had good reviews. I now know why: John led the tour each day in a professional manner and made sure everyone was accounted for at each coffee break, lunch stop etc. Having hotels booked each night worked well with the right amount of meals included and “free” nights to explore towns and find a place to eat.
I am now booked on the Italian Lakes and Swiss Alps tour and know it will be equally well run.”

“Hi to you both, another fantastic tour (our 11th), l am sure you will get repeat business from the 1st time tourers. Thank you BN Tours, the back marker (liked the wave as you approached), the van driver (who had to turn up the air con from time to time!!) and the really smashing group.
Thank you for the hotels, the roads and looking out for the welfare of the group in the hot weather, the cornettos were very much appreciated at the coffee stop!!”

“Another fantastic tour of the Black Forest, so much so we’ve now done it twice! You meet great people who become friends. The hotels are great and the rides are fantastic on their researched roads. I would happily recommend this company to anyone. We are on our 7th tour with them and we’ll definitely be doing more! John & Jen are great hosts and make it a memorable holiday.”

“Thanks John for another excellent trip. Having been with a number of tour companies you are head and shoulders above them all and provide your clients with a great holiday. Having the van to put luggage in is a great feature. The hotels and routes are well researched and you led us on some exciting roads. The tour group were a friendly and safe bunch to ride with and I never had an anxious moment. Favorite stop -Baden Baden. Really enjoyed the roads on the trip to the waterfalls and the B500.”

“Just finished the ‘ Black Forest’ tour. Had a great time with great people even though we were on our tractors (Harleys)!! We were never far behind the main group because of the drop off system. Hotels were great and also the rides. Recommend to anybody wishing a guided tour.”

Thanks to Chris for riding as back-marker and to Stephen for sending photos too. Thanks to everyone for great riding & great company – we look forward to seeing many of you again on future tours. Ride safe – John & Jen.
