"It was an amazing trip, our guide keep taking us day after day to beautiful places."
"The uncrowded roads and high passes on the Top of Europe Tour were awesome. Uwe made good choices based on current weather conditions."
"We have done four motorcycle trips in Europe. This Top of Europe trip with Uwe Krauss as our guide was by far the best trip. Truly the best roads and scenery that I could have imagined!"
"Top of Europe exceeded expectations! Uwe was a big part of that, with his comprehensive knowledge of the area, joyful personality and brisk riding style. He also was responsive to the group's input and deviated a couple of times from the originally planned route, both times with excellent experiences: great views, corners and memories." Bill D.
"We took the top of Europe 2016 tour. It is hard to put into words how great of time we had with this group. Our guide gave us enough freedom to ride as much or as little as we wanted not to mention the views! Great group of people to be with also." Slade & Robyn M
