What our participants think:
The best holiday we have had together. Fantastic scenery and sights along the route and never felt rushed or too tired at the end of the busy days. Great support and guidance from Mark, Graham and Amy throughout the trip. Everything promised was delivered by the team and this was real value for money. Its hard to imagine now that we actually did it, but we did. Thanks to all, including our travel buddies.

Best of the West was certainly the best yet. Where to start! Riding as a pillion behind my Veteran husband we both enjoyed some amazing, breathtaking and sometimes challenging experiences. he list of places visited went beyond expectation and the miles covered over the course of the 10 days was approximately 2300. The tour incorporated Santa Monica Pier, San Francisco, parts of Route 1 and 101, infamous Route 66, Yosemite National Park, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Oatman (Donkey Village) and Monument Valley to name but a few. For me riding through the state of Utah and entering Bryce Canyon was the highlight of the tour offering the most amazing and overwhelming scenery. The Grand Canyon came a close second as we were lucky enough to be there as the sun was setting, enhancing everything tenfold.
Whilst riding through Death Valley we and another rider and pillion broke away from the group and enjoyed riding a white knuckle ride! As we did so we had a fighter jet fly over our heads - Top Gun eat your heart out! We re-joined the group and enjoyed ice creams whilst temperatures reached in excess of 100 degrees
I embraced every opportunity as a pillion to just sit back and soak in all the sights in the knowledge that I was in safe hands both on the bike and within the group. I climbed Vernal Falls together with a fellow pillion, swam in the sea and Tenaya Lake - now that was just a little bit chilly but again an experience not to be forgotten.
The tour afforded great accommodation, lead us to excellent eating establishments and was very professionally, seamlessly organised. The camaraderie within the group was fantastic and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the experiences, making good friends, sharing stories - laughing, crying and eating throughout the day and evening.
Thank you Darren and team for making this happen
