Frequently Asked Questions - Motorcycle Trips in Greece


Frequently Asked Questions

Below we answer a few very general questions.

Additionally, as genuine motorcyclists we believe in human interaction and the individuality of each person. For this reason we have created a chat on our site, so that you can ask us any further questions you may personally have and we can respond to you directly. Do not hesitate to join us in a friendly chat session.

How long do we ride each day?

For each tour the daily distance covered is approximately 200-300 km, all on asphalt roads. This means between 4 to 5 hours of riding. On most tours we start at about 9:00 am and return to the hotel between 5:00 and 7:00 pm. The remaining hours are filled by rest stops, snacks, coffee, visiting attractions, photography and so on.

What kind of motorcycle experience do I need to participate? How difficult are the routes?

MotoVoyager tours are tailored to motorcyclists of all levels. However, you must have a valid motorcycle driving licence for at least two years. The selected routes are planned to follow low traffic roads and to offer a good deal of sightseeing. You do not need to be a highly experienced motorcyclist. Furthermore, the tour leader is always there to help, if needed. Based on our experience, if you are not travelling with your own motorcycle, we recommend that you to book a 650-850cc bike with us. It is more than enough for travelling in Greece and particularly agile. Of course, the final choice is yours.

Do you offer medical insurance? What happens if there is an accident or a mechanical failure?

With regards to insurance coverage we offer two types, which are included in the tour prices.
For health insurance: we provide you with an advanced medical care package. Please ask for further details. 
For bike insurance: all our motorcycles are fully insured, although there is a deposit which has to be given for each rental. Also, all the bikes provided by us are covered for roadside assistance or immediate replacement, if the problem is serious. You should ensure the same if you join with your own bike.

During the tour am I required to ride in a specific order?

Greece & Motorcycling are two concepts that are intertwined with freedom. We do not ride as if we are in a parade. The tour leader provides a comfortable touring pace to the group, but each person can ride at a slower or faster pace, if he/she wishes. Our experience and design is such that it ensures no one gets lost or feels pressured to ride at any particular speed. We focus on allowing each individual to enjoy the ride as he or she desires.

What is a rest day?

A rest day is when we relax in one place. We enjoy local attractions, tastes and shorts walks. Our tour guide can suggest a non-guided route on this day and each individual can decide whether they want to join the company or do their own thing.

What is the group size of each tour?

To achieve the highest comfort and enjoyment of the tour each group consists of a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 10 motorcyclists.

Is it safe to ride a motorcycle in Greece?

Greece is a very bike friendly country. It is a land with warm and sunny weather for most of the year and for this reason there are many motorcyclists. It is estimated that there is 1 motorcycle for every 10 cars on the road, suggesting a very high rate of motorcyclists, however car drivers are accustomed to driving amongst motorcycles and are always alert for bikers around them.

I like motorbikes, but I do not ride. Can I follow the tour program with my car?

Yes, for sure. All selected routes are scenic routes with asphalt. You can enjoy 100% of the entire tour with your friends in your car. Your only obligation is to comply with the instructions of our tour leader, so that the car does not interfere with the driving of the motorcyclists. The tour benefits and rates are the same as if you were joining us with your own bike.

What languages do the guides speak?

All our tours leaders are fluent in Greek and English, and can speak one other language. Additionally, from their great international travel experiences, they can even manage to communicate with the rarest languages.
[About Us]

What hotel and meal quality does the tour provide?

All our hotels and guesthouses are carefully selected by us based on comfort, cleanliness and customer service. In Greece, European cuisine and Mediterranean flavors are customary. It is also possible to find vegetarian meals everywhere.

How much luggage do I bring?

Please note that all our bikes are equipped with 2 side panniers.
Furthermore, Greece is a temperate and warm country with a casual dress code. For example, when you are not riding, you can enter a museum and go almost anywhere with only shorts and t-shirt, if you like. Our recommendation is that you bring comfortable clothing and not too much formal dressing. We can, of course, store for you at no extra charge, whatever you may carry and do not wish to take on tour, until you return.

What is necessary to bring with me?

You must bring your riding helmet and a water-proof uniform. We do not provide riders equipment - unless we have arranged this with you in advance.

What if I want to extend my trip in Greece? Can you book us rooms to stay?

As we have mentioned we are not tour agents. We are, however, Greeks in our country, with great experience in organizing and booking trips. We can recommend to you where to go and what to see, and advise you about where to stay and what to eat. Simply tell us what you would like and we will help you find what you're looking for - at no extra charge.

Do I need a visa for Greece?

Visitors from all European Union, UK & Skandinavian countries do not need a visa. Nor do citizens from USA, Canada, Australia, Japan and N. Zealand. If you are not sure you should check with your local consulate or travel agent.
