About Us

 

“We are passionates! We love our bikes and we love Southern Europe for its great roads, fantastic weather, amazing landscapes and easy-going lifestyle. That’s what we want to share with you during our exclusive tours.

With Vintage Motorcycle Tours, everything is included, from the first to the last day: motorcycles, accommodation, fuel, food, drinks, luggages transfer, spare bike, tour guide, visits…

If you want, you can be accompagnied by a guide as well as an assistance which follows with luggages and a spare motorcycle. And guess what? You can even switch bikes whenever you want! What’s better than riding a Honda 1000 CBX 6 cylinders and then a Kawasaki 750 H2 3 cylinders 2 strokes!!! Or Yamaha 350 RDLC, 500 XT or Triumph Bonneville, all on the same tour! Let’s create memories for a lifetime!

As our good friend Vince once said: “The destination is just an excuse for the ride!”

Yamaha motorbikes tour

The overall spirit of these bikes and how they feel when you’re riding them is indescribable, not to mention their appearance and impeccable craftsmanship. There’s nothing better than riding in style.

South of France, Italy and Corsica are part of our classic rides

Our Tours

South of France / Italy / Corsica / Spain / Portugal / Provence / Alps / Croatia / Switzerland / Austria … and ask us for other destinations !


South of France, Provence and Alps

 

South of France is one of the most visited places in France with its exceptional scenery, laid back lifestyle, fine wine and cuisine. The landscape is very diverse and it’s one that has inspired centuries of artists, writers and poets. During your tour you will ride past huge mountain ranges, acres of lush green countryside and long stretches of sparkling Mediterranean coastline. Côte d’Azur is a glamorous region that has transfixed many famous visitors over the decades including royalties, writers and artists such as Pablo Picasso.

North Italy, Lakes and Alps

 

During your ride along the scenic roads of Italy you will have the honour of experiencing the country in the best possible way through the heart of Italy from Rome to the rolling hills of Tuscany — situated between Florence and Siena — and then up and down the rocky mountains of Umbro-Abruzzese Pennines. The Italian Lakes region is another favourite tour, providing riders with stunning and unobstructed views of the Italian Lakes — from Lake Garda to Lake Como — the area is the perfect backdrop for your ride. Along the way you will also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in fine Italian cuisine and wine, which is easily as famous as the country’s artistic and historical assets. Fettucine Alfredo, Pasta e Fagioli, Polenta and Saltimbocca alla Romana are just a few of Italy’s staple dishes.

High Mountains Hills

Around Corsica

 

From the clear blue ocean waters and palm tree-lined beaches, to the mountains of the interior and hill villages of the east, Corsica is another tour that will leave you breathless. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime ride, experiencing the dramatic views of the Mediterranean from a variety of villages including Castagniccia, Cap Corse on the northern peninsula, Gorges de Spelunca, Corsica National Park along the Central Island as well as Calanches de Piana. Following the route of the Col de Bavella between Sartene and across Corsica, we will also pass through the Alta Rocca Mountains, providing you with a dramatic landscape of rocky needles and cliffs that follow the unforgettable horizon.

Riding in Comfort:

With Vintage Motorcycle Tours you won’t be camping in the mountains. We did that as young lads years ago, so now it’s time for quality and comfortable tours. We will be staying at distinctive and exclusive accommodations that come fully-equipped with modern amenities and facilities, such as swimming pools, saunas, hot springs, WIFI, and more. These are hidden gems, where owners have put a lot of effort into designing unconventional settings, with great attention to details and amazing taste for decoration.

When we say comfort, we mean it! We have prepared 3 levels of tours, each of them being more exclusive:

  • 3* Tour: Great accommodation, typically 3 to 4 star hotels or very nice, local Beds & Breakfast, gastronomic restaurantss
  • 4* Tour: Luxury accommodation, hotels or high-end Bed & Breakfast, refined local food and wines
  • 5* Tour: Exclusive and unique, palaces, ‘Relais et Chateaux’, nested in private and hidden areas, includes Michelin star restaurants, renowned Chefs

NON-RIDERS, PARTNERS & WIVES:
Do you want to take your friend or partner with us?
They have the choice to ride on the back of your bike, or follow the group with one of our vintage cars. Thus they won’t miss anything of the adventure, you can share these moments of true wellness together and create memories for a lifetime! See page ‘Not Riding‘ for more details.

2 OPTIONS:
Guided option: There will be a guide on your tour riding with you to make sure that the ride goes well and is safe. But don’t let that stop you from riding in front of the group or with your buddy — we will meet at designated points along the way.

Free option: There is no guide and no assistance car. It includes the road book, reservations, the program, visits and all other information needed for the good proceedings of your tour. This option allows you more independence and corresponds to accustomed riders.

LUGGAGE AND SUPPORT:
The backup vehicle will transport your luggages
from one place to the other, so that you can ride light and comfortable, and your bag will be waiting for you when you arrive at the hotel each evening.

All of our motorcycles are in perfect condition. They are maintained by our team with great care and passion. We ensure all preventative maintenance for trouble-free rides. Because mechanical problem can always arise with these vintage beauties, we also carry a spare bike with us.

All-inclusive:

With each tour, we ride approximately 200 to 300 kilometres per day or 5 to 7 hours each day. The distance and time will depend on the type of roads, country and weather conditions. It will also depend on what YOU want to do: more breaks, more visits, slower pace… We will make sure that our tour suits your requirements perfectly, and not the other way around!

Because riding a motorcycle is essentially all about sharing a passion and moments with friends, we decided to make it easy for riders like you to enjoy their passion for Vintage Motorcycles. This is a reason why all our tours are all-inclusive, including motorcycles rentals, fuel, toll, airport pickup, local transfer, as well as overnight accommodations, drinks and food. Only alcoholic drinks are not included, because it is too difficult to predict!

With our all-inclusive status, riders can enjoy their tour on iconic bikes in extraordinary territories, through beautiful scenic routes without having to worry about anything other than the thrill of the ride.
