Our guided motorcycle tours

Arranging your guided motorbike tour through McTours makes the experience easy and convenient for you. Our European motorcycle tours are well-planned, ride at a leisurely pace and mostly stay in the best hotels each area has to offer. Here are some things included in our European motorbike tours:

Motorcycle Rental

We rent late model well-maintained motorcycles on all our tours, so, if you are planning touring Europe by motorcycle through McTours you don’t have to bring your own bike or try to find a motorcycle Europe rental agent in your destination country or region. In most locations we can supply BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph, Yamaha and other brands on request for your motorcycle Europe tour, thus, there is a ride to suit every rider. Naturally, if you want to bring your own motorbike that’s just fine with us!

Great hotels

We will make arrangements in some of the best hotels along the route. Most are 4 star rated and our standard proposition is each rider in their own en-suite room, so you can rest in comfort and luxury after a long day of motorbike riding without being kept awake with someone elses snoring! Many of the hotels we use have comprehensive leisure facilities and all selected hotels have been carefully vetted to ensure they serve good food because we usually book for dinner, bed and breakfast. Naturally, we also ensure there is secure motorbike parking.


Our tours are carefully researched, well-planned and well-designed to ensure you have the best time. We offer a broad range of tours, some visiting different hotels each night and covering large geographical areas while others operating from a fixed base. These fixed base options prove especially popular for those with non-biking partners because daily trips explore an area in greater detail and return to the same hotel each night so your partner can enjoy the hotels leisure facilities and local sights while you are riding and of course there is no baggage to haul.

Length of the trip

Our European motorcycle touring holidays are flexible and can be bespoke. We start with day motorbike trips for those who don’t quite know what to expect in a motorcycle tour and prefer to take a trail run at first. Most riders come for at least 4 nights and spend 3 of those days riding. We have organised a bespoke European motorbike tour that lasted 5 weeks and visited 10 countries. Our 9 day, 8 night touring holiday with 7 day riding is the most popular. We have a number of different options available to you and can also customise the trip according to your requirements.

Motorcycle Tours Italy

We have offered motorbike tours in our favourite regions of Italy since 2011. In this time we have learnt that the north of the country around the Italian Lakes and Alps together with Tuscany have proven to be most popular. For 2018 we have improved our offering in these two areas.

Motorcycle Tours Spain

We only started touring parts of Spain in 2015 having spent previous years researching the areas we wanted to offer in our tours. We quickly discovered how great the Spanish roads are and for 2018 we will be offering two Spanish Motorcycle Tours.

Southern Spain can be too hot to ride in during the summer months but late February to early March in Andalucía it is ideal. This is why this tour is particularly popular with Scottish bikers who want a pre season warm up before getting their bikes back on the road for the main domestic biking season. Get full details about our Andalusian Tour by following the link.

There are so many great roads in the Pyrenees it can be challenging to plot a route that takes in the best of them but we think we have got it just right for our 2018 motorcycle trip through the Pyrenees. This trip crosses back and forth between the Spanish and French sides and even stops overnight in Llivia a Spanish enclave within the French department of Pyrénées-Orientales; quite literally Spain within France. Get full details about our Pyrenean Tour by following the link.

We also offer regional, national, short, and bespoke motorcycle tours for different locations in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and we are currently researching the Balkans where we plan to offer tours in 2020. Most of our tour groups are limited to eight riders who are accompanied by two professional and experienced guides. This ensures travellers have some company without being too overwhelmed.
