This trip was much better than advertised. Our guides Pierre and Mirko kept us moving, provided sensational support, showed us endless twistys that no one else possibly could, and they were fun to be with. They introduced us to the less traveled Pyrenees, gave us area history and translated so that we could enjoy the local flavor.

Hotels were excellent and offered either history or a luxury setting. As an added bonus we met amazing locals and made some friends for life among the tour riders.

Soon we will be back at work, but our thoughts will be on the endless turns of the Pyrenees and the adventure that we shared with our friends.

Thanks, be back soon.

Fabulous trip, with a great group of people! For pure motorcycle riding pleasure, these roads are at least the equal of those in the Alps. Excellent tour guides in Mirko and Pierre. It was especially my great pleasure to renew my acquaintance with Pierre who was my tour guide in the Alps two years ago.
