"Just returned from 2 weeks riding the 5 Country Tour. The ultimate motorcycle tour! For the avid motorcyclist, this should be the "must do" ride. Our Guide was awesome, his local knowledge, language skills and ability to pick the routes made this trip priceless!"
"A well-run trip that is for riders wanting to ride exhilarating roads with excellent scenery and great accommodations!"
"The 5 Country Tour was the first guided group tour that my husband and I have participated in. I believe that the Blue Rim Tour staff is truly dedicated to the happiness of their customers. Specifically, the 5 Country Tour was very challenging for me to ride and the tour guides, as well as several members of the group, were very supportive. I believe that while riding through incredible scenery, my motorcycling skills have improved. Thanks, Blue Rim Tours!"
"My wife and I each ride our own bikes and frequently ride together. We decided to try the Blue Rim Five-Country Tour because we felt that it was the only way that we would be able to experience riding in these extraordinary locations. The reality is that we were escorted through some of the most challenging riding of my fifty-ish years on two wheels. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and supportive. The hotels and food were excellent. It was "an experience of a lifetime"."
"Blue Rim Tours ran a truly flawless tour. From start to finish everything was handled in a both professional and at the same time fun loving manner. If you are looking at a "bang for the buck" kind of bottom line I defy you to find a better bunch of people and a better tour of the Alps. You won't!"
"This is a well thought out and planned tour if you want to explore some of the passes that other tours don't include. Be prepared to do many hairpin turns climbing up and descending the mountains."
"The 5 Country Tour was our first trip across the pond. We rode 2 up and had a blast, challenging roads and great scenery. This trip is really catered for those who like to ride!" Todd T.
"I couldn’t believe how fast those 12 days went. I’d do that trip again without a second thought, and I’d recommend it to anyone who asked." Amy T.
"We had a great time all around. Our tour guide was an instant friend and perfect for the task. We loved the sights and the riding." Linda and Ron M.
