Testimonials

  • Review by Marty from Scotland

    "Last week my friend and myself were staying in Almuñecar on the Costa Tropical and seen Enfield Classic's 1 day tour advertised and decided to give it a try. All I can say is absolutely amazing!! Our guide Steve was a pleasure to ride with and rode at a enjoyable pace. The motorcycles provided ran perfect and were mechanically sound. Our day was filled with adventure, fun, laughs (thanks, Steve) and some of the most breath-taking scenery imaginable. I haven’t stop talking about the ride since I got back home. I’m already planning on coming back to Andalucia later this year with another 2 friends to partake in one of their 7 day distance tours. I highly recommend this ride to anyone looking to experience riding in the south of Spain. Thank you, Steve, and your terrific staff for providing such outstanding service!"

    "Hello Steve. Many thanks to you and Ron for arranging and leading a fabulous trip. We were a bit apprehensive as we had not been on a bike trip for many years and are rebuilding our 2 wheels experience again now our children have left home. Also we have not been to the South of Spain before and were very pleased with the experience."

    "Regarding ECMT - you enabled us to enjoy the trip at the pace we were comfortable with and no one was under pressure to keep up. You also cared for us well ensuring we got to where we had to in good time. Thank you and kind regards."
