About Us

You can be confident that we will take away the stress and let you focus on the fun. We have many years’ experience of organising and leading motorcycle tours and understand what it takes to make a great holiday.

Come and join us for the trip of a lifetime.

 

Since 2007

We have been making people’s riding dreams come true since 2007 by providing motorcycle guided tours, designing bespoke and self-drive tours and arranging motorcycle rentals.

We currently offer tours in the USA, the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, Nepal and India.

Through its years of operation Hadrian Motorcycle Tours and Rentals has built a reputation as a friendly and reliable business that delivers wonderful touring experiences that you will cherish for a lifetime. Many of our customers enjoy our holidays so much that they come back for more – year after year – and have now become firm friends.

Our Team

Hadrian Motorcycle Tours is a friendly, family run business that has expanded over the last 13 years to include a large team of staff and tour guides. All guides are very experienced riders, with many years of touring under their wheels. Our tour leaders are all trained as advanced riders and all guides are first aid trained.
