About Our Tours
Great Escape Motorbike Tours will lead you through a vast array of scenery; from bustling villiages, packed with foot traffic, families on scooters and bullock carts loaded with rice straw, to remote mountains where tourists seldom tread, tiny villiages with shepherd folk and farmers. You may ford creeks frequently swollen by tropical rains or even cross rivers in dug-out canoes. You’ll climb mountains with long sequences of hair-pin bends, and you’ll cruise warm humid valleys lined with green crops and smiling children.
You may stay in 5 star luxury, pool, restaurant and spa or you may bunk down under straw thatched roofs. There will be an adventure of flavours too with local food, beer and wine to blow your mind. Fresh from the sea, the river, the field and cooked traditionally with huge flavour.Our tours are unique. They follow trails that we discovered over hundreds of days of wandering and research. They aren’t followed by large groups of tourists and you’ll often find yourself at the centre of attention from the locals who almost never see foreigners pass through. That’s the point of a Great Escape; to see it like it really is, to get off the tourist trail and down into the real grass-roots of these wonderful places and people and to do it in the freedom a bike provides. There’s absolutely nothing like it!
If you have an interest in any particular country or area within South East Asia, India, Nepal or Sri Lanka, then we would love to customise the perfect tour for your group of 5 or more riders. We can customise the difficulty level, duration, accommodation, other included experiences and more.

If you’ve done a fair bit of riding, then you probably have all the gear you need. Riding bikes in Asia is not easy and not without risks, make sure you have protective clothing.
Many travel insurance companies will not pay for motor cycle related incidents and there are often additional costs – do your homework and check the fine print. Many require that you have a valid and current motorcycle license in your own country. Some of them do not cover bikes of certain capacities. Make sure you know your policy covers you for the worst case scenario.
KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE. WE WILL BE RIDING SOON!
