Just wanted to say thank you for our excellent Northern Peru Tour. It
started slowly with our days travelling down the Pan Americana Highway,beach
hotels and visits to historcal sites giving us chance to take in the feel
and the culture of the country.Then when we reached the mountains the
scenery and the riding just got better and better.Thanks to you and all at
APM for a fantastic adventure.Pete, Carlos and Franco looked after us so
well and were able to answer all our questions and sorted us out when ever
we had any problems.Hope to join you again in the future and maybe will get
a chance to see another part of the country.
Gerry Gooch, Solent
I would like to send you and your team of, Peter, Franco, Carlos and
Lorenzo, my most sincere thanks for the way that you each guided me and the
group of 7 other `Clients` around the most spectacular motorcycling country
that I have ever visited in the world.
The friendship and loyalty
that you and your team showed towards each of us in various ways, both
during the great times and when things were not going quite so well, was
comforting beyond what any of us could have expected. You are each to be
complemented in this respect. I felt that I was part of a family throughout
the adventure and the group of riders that I met helped enormously in
achieving this atmosphere.
I have done some pretty exciting things on bikes during my long life, but
the memories of, `The Northern Tour of the Andes` will linger on at the top
of those memories for many years to come.
Thank you to you all for making this happen.

Probably the best trip we have done so far, we have done 25 states in the
USA and to change to South America was really exiting, the roads and views
were stunning, especially the cloud forest, the canyon Del patos was
I've not done a lot of off
road work, so with a pillion it was demanding, but well worth it.
everything was just great!!!. the group we rode with were brilliant and
the APM team were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble. it was a holiday
of a lifetime,
Hope to do the southern tour one day
A big thanks to Dave, Peter, Carlos & Franco (vely vely Cold!!)
Just a few words to tell you what a great time I had on my trip to Peru.
I have travelled a fair bit in Europe, Scandinavia and particularly Africa
but this was without doubt the trip of a lifetime. Peru is a fantastic place
to ride and your route ensured that, in between riding some amazing mountain
roads, we crammed so much sightseeing into such a short period. Your
operation is slick and well organised especially by Peter and his team in
Peru. They were able to keep it friendly and laid back whilst still getting
us where we needed to go. I could go on, but will you book me onto your
Northern Tour in 2010. I think that says it all.
Many thanks to you Peter,Carlos,Franco and Lorenzo
All the best
Bev and Andrew
WOW........ What a Honeymoon!! ie Day one attacked by dogs ....fell off!!!
However no injuries and honestly....wouldn't have changed a thing ;-) Those
chilled out Dudes from Peru Motorcycling don't make a drama out of a
crisis!! Scenery amazing and the team give encouragement and advice every
step of the way so that even a Fat Forty-something female like myself felt
ok to try the more challenging rides without feeling that I was letting
anyone down if I decided to take time out!! Thanks lads!!
We recommend leaving time at the end of the tour to fit in Cusco and Machu
picchu...it finished the holiday off nicely!!

Do Peru ! Just do it ! If you think you cant afford it, beg, borrow or steal
the money and do it. It will change your life. You'll come back with stuff
you couldn't dream of, and perhaps leave some baggage behind that's been
holding you back.''
Mel Falconer, TBM (Trailbike
& Enduro Magazine) Deputy News Editor
High altitude thrills amongst some of the most awe-inspiring scenery
in the world is what riding in Peru is all about - just go there and ride.
& Carol Green - Inverness
Once again many thanks for a fantastic time despite the challenges that we
all faced! You and the guys really went out of your way to accommodate us
and provide us with a fantastic bespoke adventure holiday.
If you want any references or a point of contact don't hesitate to pass on
our number, I know Carol will be more than willing to talk with any
prospective lady riders that you may have thinking about your trips.
Dave Haggett - Leeds
Great trip, value for money biking. The Andes and mountains were
fantastic. Loved the people of Peru.
David Woodiwiss &
Richard Langdon - Solihul
From the winding dirt tracks high in the Andes to the five-hour
gravelly blast through the Canon Del Pato was extremely good practice for
the trails back home and were awesome fun to boot - especially when you
rode them fast!
MATT WHITTINGHAM- LONDON
I had a fantastic time on
the tour & my only regret is not doing it for 3 or 4 weeks! Peter & Franco
were top blokes & great companions. Peru is wonderful & the riding was
superb especially the more challenging off road sections
JAMIE LATCHFORD- DAGENHAM
I Loved Peru! I could not
have hoped to have met a warmer and friendlier people especially given
their circumstances. I felt exhilarated to be riding in such an array of
conditions. Several times within the same day the weather & roads (or lack
of them) would surprise me in their ability to change without warning! but
it was all part of the adventure. I pushed myself beyond anything Id dealt
with before & returned a much more confident rider.

PERU 2007 BIKE TOUR
What a journey! to a real
culture which people most normally do not get to see, smell or feel as
tourists these memories I will always have with me on my journeys in life.
The Peruvian people in this
beautiful country were just the best, very friendly & I didn't come across
any situation which was difficult to deal with at all on this well guided
& organised small group tour.
A pleasure & a incredible
time in a great environment, If you want memories which will stay with you
forever take this opportunity to travel in a beautiful & challenging
country PERU! These memories you will carry for the rest of your life!
of Celendin Peru;
Great Trip! Thanks David, I saw parts of Peru I had never been to in my
life even though I am Peruvian! Stunning scenery and ideal biker trails.

Ralph, British Ambassador to Peru;
Being a biker myself, such holidays hold enormous appeal for me. Keep me
informed as your business in Peru develops and I will certainly visit you in
Cajamarca the next time I am up that way. 2005
of Chepstow, South Wales;
Riding off road for over half of our 1000 mile journey was undoubtedly
the most rewarding and I was deeply impressed by the resilience of the
people of Peru whose harsh existence contrasts so sharply with ours. 2005
Walters of East Sussex, England;
Great off road riding especially going up the Canyon De Patos for 70k's.
Loved the food and drink and women of Peru! In fact, still going out with
the one I met in Caraz! Northern Tour.
Davies; Brecon, South Wales;
Super trip, wonderful scenery, shame about my stomach! Got a new name on
tour Di Rea! but can't wait to go again (that's a trip not to the loo!) 2005
& Brian; South Kilkenny, Ireland;
Thanks boys for a great trip. We really enjoyed it, it was an experience
we will never forge. It had everything from snow capped mountains to deserts
to lush warm valleys to dirt roads. The trip was well planned from start to
finish with every day a new adventure. The Suzuki DR650s are an excellent
bike for the terrain, we would like to thank Dave, Pete, Carlos and Franco
for a great trip. Keep in touch, we definitely want to go again next year!
2005 Northern Tour.
of Alicante, Spain;
The DR 650 is a great choice of machine, many of the trails and roads we
followed were great and we had a real insight into Peru proper before seeing
the tourist attractions. I was pleasantly surprised by the food in the rural
areas both in quality and cost. One of my lasting memories is being ambushed
by village dogs more times than in my 46 years of riding. Thanks for all the
work which went into organising the tour as I know it was considerable and
to Carlos and Franco for all their help, thanks to Peter whose obvious and
extensive experience/endurance showed through and was greatly appreciated. I
hope you will run many more tours in the years to come and make more people
aware of the attractions of Peru. Southern Tour 2006.
Tarporley, Cheshire, England;
Thanks for providing such a good tour to the Andes, the route and roads
were excellent. The riding was superb and the Suzuki DR650s were I reckon
just about the best bike possible to do such a trip. They climbed
faultlessly to nearly 5000 metres! which for carburettor engines was
astounding. Wherever really nice hotels were available we stayed in them and
where not it was always perfectly adequate. I enjoyed the trip and the
company of your staff and clients. I wish you the best of success with the
future trips. Southern Tour 2006.
Cherry (Captain Chaos)
Peru is one of the greatest biking countries I have ridden and I have
ridden in 19 countries to date. Particular thanks to Carlos for all his help
and if you want someone to help Peter investigate new trail routes in Peru
let me know, even though im 73! Southern Tour 2006
It was out of this World. I've been riding for 25 years and never seen
anything like it. You go to five times this height of Ben Nevis and when you
return there is a real sense of achievement.
Tunbridge Wells, England;
I can thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone wishing to escape the normal
pressures of life. The combination of stunning scenery and good company
added to the pleasure of riding modern, well maintained bikes makes one
forget everything else. The staff are very helpful and make sure that if,
like me you prefer to potter along, you are not left on your own. If I was
looking for criticism, some of the hotels though clean can be a little basic
and do not for instance have hot taps in the washbasins. However that is a
minor disadvantage on a holiday that is different, fascinating and amazingly
good value. Delighted, Tunbridge Wells!
Ferguson, Rhyader, Mid Wales
This was a life
changing experience for me having ridden off road in Wales for many years
nothing could compare with the views I have seen of the Andes and mountains.
