“This tour was my 10’th with BN European Tours. Perhaps that says it all! The organisation, routes and hotels were excellent. John was his usual professional, friendly and patient self. Nothing was too much bother and no problem too difficult that could not be solved with good grace and a smile. As a lone traveller, it was really good to be with such a friendly group of bikers. I was made welcome by everyone. To my surprise, even the car drivers were friendly. It was almost normal for one to halt the traffic while we exited a junction or petrol station. In summary, an excellent tour that will provide fond memories for years to come.”

“This was our first trip with BN European Tours, riding the Wild Atlantic Way, and will not be our last. Everything was easy from the day we signed up. The trip planning was spot on, with excellent hotels, good distance rides, cultural visits and stunning scenery on great roads. There was a great mix of people on a selection of bikes, solos and pillions, which made for super breaks and social evenings.
John was a perfect guide and host, a natural leader who included everyone, made us all feel confident and safe, and had excellent control of his flock!!All in all a great tour, with loads of fond memories and good value for money.”

“Firstly, a huge thanks from us both for another great tour with BN European Tours. We booked rather late this year and to be honest we were a little hesitant about a tour of Ireland as we were not at all sure about the potential weather and the route. As it turned out we had a mixed bag of weather, which if anything really added to the fun of the rides and it turned out to be one of the best tours we have done. The routes were really good with a great mixture of roads and very well located and good quality hotels. Visits to the nightlife in Dublin and Killarney were great fun…and Christine even enjoyed her first pint of Guinness!! As always it was great to meet new biking buddies and we both hope to meet them again on a future tour with you. Thanks again.”
