Tour Overview 

Your tour guides will meet you at a prearranged time and location near the Eurotunnel in Folkestone. Once we are all together and refuelled we'll check in and board the train to Calais. On arrival in France we'll take a steady ride to our first hotel in Tinqueux for the night. The following morning you will be guided through France into Germany where we start to explore the beautiful Black Forest region, ending the day at a great hotel for dinner and a bed for the night.  Then continuing down the famous B500 we cross the border into Austria to our fabulous 5* hotel for the next 5 nights. During your stay here, you have the option to join one of our many guided ride outs, take yourself out on a ride of your choice or simply relax in the amazing surroundings or onsite spa. On leaving this hotel we take a different route through Garmisch-Partenkirchen back into the Black Forest for another nights hotel stay. Then its back to our hotel in France for the last night together before the journey to Calais and the train home.
