WHY CHOOSE MOTOGREECE

A LEGITIMATE COMPANY YOU CAN TRUST

MotoGreece is a registered company, operating legally with a license granted by the governing body for tourism in Greece, the National Greek Tourism Organization.

Registration & License number: MHTE 0206E82000521401

We founded MotoGreece in 2015 with one goal and vision: to highlight Greece as a favorable motorcycling destination and show to riders from all over the world what a fantastic time they can have while touring on a motorcycle in Greece. The challenge is a big one: to stand out among numerous companies that offer such services in Europe & become established as a reputable and trusted company.

We can say the obvious: we turned our passion into business. That’s something we are sure you read often. It’s almost a cliche. But really it could not be otherwise, could it?

Here are our ingredients to make this happen: our pure love for motorcycling, our noteworthy traveling experience domestically and abroad, the inside knowledge of our country’s secrets and a strong professional background. Continuous improvement, customer focus and all the principles of Quality Management Systems have been incorporated into our organization.

5 , I rent a motorcycle from MotoGreece for three days. I got a new F700 BMW, new helmet and a big smile and a cup of coffee as soon as I get to their office (5 min walking from the train station to/from the airport). John, one of the managers spent time with me to review my trip plan and the motorcycle itself, suggested me on places to sleep at and which roads should I take.
As soon as I brought the motorcycle back the checkout was very easy and fair without any major issues.
I will be back!!

Ami Sayag, from Israel, review on Facebook

We hired motorcycles at a new agency in Athens, MotoGreece.gr – Motorcycle Tours & Rentals in Greece, a lovely guy named John Kapelakis. The new BMW 700GS motorcycles, suitcases with high-quality BMW side luggage, top box, lock, gps holder, etc.

John sent tracks to the road and to the terrain that proved themselves, and also gave us detailed maps.

The guy is trustworthy and the attitude is excellent. The agency itself is a bit cramped, soon they will move to a more spacious place. Located in the center of Athens near the Hilton. Warmly recommended!

5 , Rented a BMW f700gs with two side bags. John was great to work with, flexible as possible with a last minute tweak to my schedule. Safely stored a bag at his office. The bike was in great, mechanically sound with zero issues. I can’t say enough about the experience. I’ll be renting again. Thank you

Justin Kosmides, from U.S.A., reviews on Facebook and on Google!

5 , My friend and I rented two BMW 700GS bikes from here. The bikes were almost new and immaculate condition. Service was excellent and John went out of his way to help and even let us drop the bikes back on a Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended.

TRAVEL EXPERIENCE MATTERS !

Whether it is a short-term tour to popular motorcycling destinations all over Europe, such as the Alps, the Pyrenees, the North Cape, or a long-term motorcycle expedition over a distant continent forming what is usually referred to as “a trip of a lifetime”, we have done it.

The experiences earned during all these years that we have been traveling on our motorcycles have been integrated into the planning of our tours. We know which details are important. We know what can make the day go bad and what can turn it to a “day to be remembered”. We understand the particularities of motorcycle touring and what the rider wants at the beginning, during the course, and at the end of each riding day.

In “Our travelogues” section of the MotoGreece blog you will find stories from some of our personal travels. Below is a random selection of them :

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

Before establishing MotoGreece, our career paths led us to operate in very demanding, high-calibre business environments. It is from within that combined background that we draw all the necessary qualifications and skills to ensure that this venture is run at the most proficient way.

Deriving best practices from our previous professional experiences we follow one major rule: do it right the first time. So, at MotoGreece we have set up all of our procedures following the principles that apply to modern Quality Management Systems. Our work is documented, reviewed and constantly evaluated as per the operational practices and the requirements of the international standard ISO 9000. In fact, we aim to become official certified by an accredited Certification Body as soon as we complete the minimum operating time required.

Customer focus is the corner stone of how we do things. We measure our success not in terms of financial indexes but in customer satisfaction. And you will be the proof of that!

Our Quality Standards

We think as customers

What would we want if we were customers to a similar company? What would make us satisfied with a tour operator, their service, their package? We have placed the answers in our product.

Brand new motorcycles

All our motorcycles are no more than 2 years old, in perfect operating condition. They all are 100% privately owned by MotoGreece.

Maintenance & Service

All our motorcycles are being serviced and inspected only by authorized service centers.

Evaluation

We test & evaluate all our suppliers and we accept only those who meet our criteria. Hotels & restaurants, guides for the archeological sites, etc. We carefully select everything.

Improvement

We will not settle. There is always place for improvement and we always seek ways to do things better.

Certification

As soon as we complete the minimum operating time required by the international standard ISO 9001 we will aim for a certification for our Quality Management System that we have implemented.

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

We are Greeks, born-and-bred. And we have been riding our motorcycles through our own “neighborhood” for the last 20 years. We know the places. We know the sights. We know the routes. No other foreign tour operator knows our playground better.
