Why Do a Self Guided Tour versus on your own? The most capable and experienced riders often choose the self guided tour option versus trying to figure it all out on their own.  They realize they are probably only going to be here once, and want to make the most out of their trip.  You can still add other things you want to do, but it gives a solid foundation for your trip.  Read the testimonials at the bottom of the page.  With my 20 plus years in the touring business, I would not consider personally going to an unknown area and trying to figure it all myself, I would rather spend my time having fun.  SELF-DRIVE TOUR FAQ’S – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What a pity as I already complained about the absolutely filthy places we had to stay. I lived in Backpackers lodges on previous bike trips in South Africa. They were clean and acceptable though. I now understand your warning about the cheapest hotels. I spent extra on a different hotel tonight as the $57 hotel we were booked in is simply too sick. For a little more $ we got a lot better place. Sorry we could not have taken your trip. Hope to see you on a bike trip in South Africa some day. Let me know and we will host you in our are. Kind regards C 2: This person decided to do a Ride Free Self Guided Motorcycle Tour after being skeptical Hi Wil (& Erin) Sorry I haven’t gotten around to this sooner – things got a bit hectic after our vacation! I just wanted to say that we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us. We had such an awesome time, and this was so much thanks to you. In the beginning my brother-in-law was skeptical and thought we could figure it out ourselves. But after a few recommended stops, our mantra was “do exactly what Wil says”. All of the food places and things you recommended were worthwhile, so we felt like nothing was a waste. The other part that I am so grateful for, was your assistance in helping us have a great day after our Big Sur disappointment. (Ride Free:  the rains washed out the road ) Your follow-up, and care in helping us recover was really cool. I am not sure what would be most helpful to your business in terms of reviews and testimonials – but I am happy to do whatever you think will give you the most recognition. Just let me know whether Yelp, Facebook, TripAdvisor or your website (or all of the above) are helpful and I will get to writing some reviews. I could tell right away that you were going to be great people to work with, and that was totally true. I hope you and your family have a brilliant year and we will hit you up again for a tour somewhere else soon. Regards, Phil 3: The types of places we stay in etc: Hello Wil and Erin. Just a short note to thank you for the ‘BEST VACATION EVER’. Both Brian and Andy were exceptionally professional and it is fair to say that that trip would not have been as good without the professional and friendly banter between the group and the guides.  They were well able to cater for the differences in the group and this aided the holiday. The locations, lodgings and roads traveled matched and, sometimes, exceeded our expectations.   On at least two occasions the accommodations were part of our dreams.   ( Log cabin on a lake ) Meals and locations for meals were fantastic.   Even on the two occasions where Brian had to think on his feet due to changes or closures the replacements were great. I am a bit concerned regarding just how good the Harley Davidson motor cycle is and unfortunately for me it looks like I am going to have to review my Suzuki Boulevard now as the result that Judy enjoyed sitting up the back of the ultra glide in her arm chair.   According to Judy the ride is much smoother also.   After talking with Brian I feel that I must check out the Indian as well however, I spit on BMW’s still.  I acknowledge the small issue that we had with our bike was nothing that you could have prepared for and it did not dampen our tour or our enjoyment of the tour. We are currently still doing our sums regarding next year but hopefully in a month or so we will be able to inform you regarding the Route 66 trip in 2017. In closing I would like to say again that our holiday was fantastic and this was largely due to the hard work and professional attitude of both Brian and Andy.    We will be recommending them and the Ride Free company to all our friend and company here.   If ever you get to Australia there is a bed at our house for you all. Thank you. Bill and Judy – Australia – 2016 Canadian Rockies Guided Motorcycle Tour
