Testimonials

  • Review by Andy from Hampshire, England

    "I just got back from Germany with Missed Adventures. This is my third trip with Phil. The whole trip was well planned and the accommodation was great as always. I went through fantastic routes every day. The B500 was worth the trip alone. With Phil being able to speak German, we didn't go hungry even once. I'm looking forward to another trip next year!"

    "Many thanks for a well organized and enjoyable adventure. Every day was different in terms of ride, scenery, and culture. I thought our Indian trips could not be better. I'm not so sure now."

  • Review by John from London, England

    "Picos and Portugal 2016 was my fourth tour with Missed Adventures and once again Phil's consistent caring attitude, attention to detail, fluency in Spanish, and a varied route with quality hotels along the way make this a memorable holiday. We were a group of mixed ages and different bikes but we all got on very well. Once again I would recommend Missed Adventures to anyone. Try it!"
