SELF GUIDED MOTORCYCLE TOURS – OVERVIEW

Why take one of our self-guided motorcycle tours ? Because everything is ready for you!

No need to spend all your free evenings or weekends researching for the best riding routes in Greece. No need to search for the proper hotels, nor for the major cultural sites, or wondering how to tie all those together in a great motorcycling experience. Your time is precious and so is your spending money. 

You are in the right place. Our “ready-to-go” packages offer tremendous value for money.

And in case you are wondering about how good your experience is going to be, we let our customers do the talking! The following review (posted on TripAdvisor) comes from a customer who says he and his friends have done 20+ tours with other companies in other countries. So, as you may understand, they could be very tough and strict since they have a lot of references to make comparisons! Here is what they wrote:

“We traveled throughout southern Greece, staying at gorgeous and unique lodgings with the most caring hosts. Every road and then some was marked out on our GPS that John pre-loaded for us including points of interest, with explanations and a list of suggested restaurants. His explanations before we began and his genuine concern for our trip to be successful gave us the confidence to begin our journey.

He also included an extremely handy journal with maps, waypoints and a brief explanation of each stop. We traveled for 10 days with a few rest days on one of the many beautiful beaches that he chose for us. He custom made our trip according to our needs and desires. Having done in excess of 20 + self-guided trips this trip stands out as our best thanks to MotoGreece. Without a doubt MotoGreece is in a class of its own!!

ADD-ONS

Consider the following options to enhance your experience :

ON-ROAD RIDER TRAINING ! (1 day extra)

Spend 1 day before the start of the tour with our certified riding instructor, honing in your skills and boosting your confidence:

  • Body position
  • Visual skill, where to look
  • Counter steering and slalom
  • Cornering methods: leaning vs pushing (extremely useful for the tight hairpins you will encounter in Greece!)
  • Sudden braking, stopping the bike
  • Sudden braking, avoiding obstacles

Cost: 85 euros + the daily rental rate for the bike of your choice + fuel.

Please read our page about rider training for more details !

ATHENIAN RIVIERA (1 day extra)

An introductory ride and a leisure one, combined together! Arrive one day earlier and ride with a member of our crew along the coastal front of the Athenian region, reaching cape Sounio. No luggage, no rush and no worries of getting lost!

Acclimatize to the conditions of the Greek roads, get familiar with the bike in a moderate pace, accompanied by a member of our crew! For the first 20 minutes we will ride patiently as we will be tackling the busy traffic of Athens, but then you will enjoy a leisurely ride along the coast, visit the temple of Poseidon if you wish, and have a coffee break by the sea! We return to the base and your hotel by late afternoon / early evening.

Cost: 100 euros shared* fee, plus the daily rental fee for the bike of your choice !

* shared fee: the cost of 100 euros is shared between all riders/pillions that will join the ride.

Fuel, coffee, snacks, drinks and any other personal expenses are not included in the price shown above.

Spending some days in Athens ? You may be interested :

Quite a few of our customers plan to spend an extra day (or days) in Athens, either before or after their motorcycle tour in Greece. Instead of using a big adventure bike to ride around Athens for sightseeing, we recommend a scooter rental !

This option offers you the advantages:

a) You save money! Instead of adding that one extra day to the rental cost of a big bike, you will get a scooter at seriously lower cost.

b) Navigating and negotiating the frenzy traffic of Athens is sooo much easier on a scooter, that you will thank us later! 

c) We can provide you with a GPS that includes all major points of interest of the capital. Don’t loose time searching around!

Options include models such as Honda SH 150i, Piaggio Medley 150, or Vespa 150/300 GTS. If you are interested in this, just make sure to check the relevant box that you will find in the “request” form, when you make your inquiry for your self-guided tour ! We will include all relevant details in our reply.
