    The Valley of Fire day tour was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. Riding a Harley Davidson where it was meant to be ridden. The vast extension of the Nevada Desert, combined with the colors of the land, the roaring of the engine and the guidance of Larry made it all a superb experience!

  2. Troy Cuddigan - Ireland says:

    Great day out with Larry. Well organised, no hassle tour with great advice regarding tour locations even in very hot weather. Will definitely go on another tour next time I am in Vegas.

  3. Vic & Dot Lawson - Blackpool England says:

    We would like everyone to know that Larry and Jill (aka Vision Motorcycle Tours) Have again given us another “Once in a Lifetime Tour.”
    Seven years ago we did the Southwest Canyons Tour and were thrilled and delighted with every aspect .
    This year we joined them again for a Tour through the Sierra Nevadas , visiting (amongst other fabulous places)Lake Tahoe, the Nappa Valley, Trinidad on the coast, SanFrancisco and wending our way back to Las Vegas through the infamous Death
    Valley . Another “Once “ in a Life Time Tour,
    They are simply brilliant at making every day full of amazing roads, spectacular views and wonderful experiences.
    With their wealth of experience, expertise and thorough knowledge of Roads, Views, Hotels, Motels, Restaurants etc, etc. Coupled with their determination to provide everyone with everything they hoped for on the tour Vision Motorcycle Tours cannot be anything but First Choice for any motorcycle tour.

    Hat’s off to Larry and Jill at Vision Motorcycle tours!!
    What an amazing adventure, through canyons and mountains, alongside gushing turquoise rivers and past dry desert river beds. A mystical ride through The Avenue of Giants , an awesome experience as the sunrays beamed through the morning mist. The challenge of the twisty roads in the heat of the sun as we headed toward the snow capped mountains. Unbelievable experiences came thick and fast on our lastest tour , Vegas to the West coast and back through Death Valley, carefully planned and brilliantly executed.
    An exceptional tick off our bucket list!!!
    Thank you soooo much Larry and Jill.

  5. Paul & Val Holden - Middlewich England says:

    Well yet again, Larry and Jill from Vision Motorcycle Tours delivered a fantastic Tour! We returned to the US for a 7th Wedding Anniversary for our friends and Larry and Jill put together a bespoke tour for us to go from Vegas, via Lake Tahoe and a couple of days in the Nappa Valley to try the wine and then on to the West Coast to travel down through San Francisco and on to San Simeon before heading back to Vegas via Death Valley. (There were several other stops as well). Every day gave us some fabulous sights and some amazing roads to ride. From the Giant Redwoods to the infamous Highway 1 and the views down the rocky coast. Larry lead at a pace that was suitable for all of us on the tour and ensured we were well fed and watered throughout the tour, including his very good BBQ skills….MMmmmm those steaks. The whole tour is planned with the customer in mind with great Motels / Hotels and everything planned to perfection, including lunch stops, fuel stops and restaurants to eat at in the evening. Once again Larry and Jill gave us a trip of a lifetime and we will definitely be back again. Thanks for a wonderful time guys!

  6. David Irwin - Sydney, Australia says:

    We had the opportunity to have a one day tour with Larry, he took us on a loop out to Oatman taking in some of Route 66. Larry was extremely helpful from the very first contact. Larry is easy to deal with and very professional. The weather was hot for the whole trip but Larry kept us hydrated with water and frequent stops. The bikes performed faultlessly and were comfortable to ride. Thanks Larry for an experience we will always remember. If you get down to Australia I will be happy to return the favour.

  7. Jim Katona - Michigan,USA says:

    This was the most organized tour we have ever experienced, Larry communicated with us from start to end and his knowledge of the area and passion for motorcycles just shines all over him. Larry also gets a lot of help from the weather and what a great team they were , we took the Red Rock Canyon / Mt Charleston one day tour, it was well planned and we had a very enjoyable ride. We are looking forward to booking another tour on our next trip west . Ride safe my friend!

  8. Neil Morris - Bristol England says:

    Booked a morning tour to Mount Charleston with Larry while in the UK. Cannot thank him enough for his patience as it was my first time on Harley. Very friendly easy to get on with guy and highly recommend anyone who wants to go on a tour, this is the company you need to go with.
    Many thanks again.

  9. Oliver Marsh - UK says:

    I’m from the UK and for my birthday my wife got me a day on a Harley and a tour of Route 66 with some historic stops along the way. One of the best days ever! Larry, my tour guide, was brilliant, professional, fun and an all round splendid chap. Can’t wait for another opportunity to call Vision Motorcycle Tours again….though next time I hope to go for longer ride!!

  10. Graham & Kim Trude - Ontario, Canada says:

    Amazing trip and beautiful scenery. Larry is an absolute beauty, had an amazing time we will be coming back again for a longer trip! Graham and Kim from Ontario, Canada

  11. Rob Sieders - BC Canada says:

    Got this day tour as a surprise from my Wife during our visit to Vegas. Larry and myself ended up going to Oatman and riding a section of legendary Route 66. It was a really nice and relaxing ride with beautiful scenery and hardly any traffic. Larry is a really easygoing guy, well experienced and real proof that you do meet the nicest people on a motorcycle. Thanks Larry for a great day.

  12. Mary Lucey and John Pender - Dublin Ireland says:

    We were in Las Vegas last week and we had booked a trip with Larry from Vision Motorcycle Tours. Larry was so helpful even before we arrived. He met us at our apartment and brought us to the motorbike bike rental shop where we picked up our bike. John was a little nervous as it was different to his own Harley. Larry was very understanding and patient. he escorted us on our day trip to the Valley of Fire. The pace was perfect, plenty of stops and a lovely picnic area selected for lunch. The scenery was amazing and Larry was a great guide and we had a great fun day. The trip was great value and I would certainly recommend checking out Vision Motorcycle Tours for a day trip or a longer customized trip. at the end of the day we were dropped back to our accommodation. Thanks Larry for a great day, a great experience , a dream come true for John to ride a Harley in the desert and great memories and photos.

  13. Paul & Denise Hart - Cornwall England says:

    This was our second tour with Larry, we had told him we would like to see Monument Valley and Bryce Canyon and wow did he come up with a tour. It was fantastic from start to finish not only did we get to see the above we also saw the fantastic Fry Canyon, Marble Canyon and Zion Park and much more. The roads were amazing and the scenery breath taking. The hotels were all small non big chain and Larry the perfect guide his knowledge is invaluable. Thank you Larry for the perfect tour. We would recommend this tour.

  14. Richie and Dawn, Staten Island, New York says:

    First time we booked this tour, and we can say without a doubt it won’t be our last! Larry put together an amazing day ride for us that included stops for pictures and lunch at a local mountain Saloon. Larry made everything easy for us – from picking up the motorcycle, the tour, lunch and the return went beautifully. He is professional, knowledgeable about the area and easy to talk to. Highly recommend his services! Thank you Larry!

  15. Carl & Brenda Kasas - Luseland, Sask, Canada says:

    This is the third year in a row that we booked tours with Vision Motorcycle Tours and this year we booked a five day Arizona tour. We left Las Vegas on the 19th of January, heading to Cave Creek, starting raining shortly after we left Vegas, 20th we headed to Bisbee, rained a little in the morning but afternoon was just overcast.Bisbee we stayed in the Copper Queen Hotel(haunted), its a beautiful old hotel. The next day we headed to Tombstone in the morning, spent a few hours in Tombstone and then onto Tucson. The weather was cool but being from Canada it was like riding in the fall here. Then we headed to Lake Havsau, awesome, we stayed at the London Bridge Resort, highly recommend it, beautiful luxury rooms. The 23rd headed back to Las Vegas all in all about 1300 miles, enjoyed everyone of them. The scenery was spectular, Larry takes some less travelled roads, which gives you time to enjoy the scenery. Again can’t say enough about Larry, he’s knowledgeable about the areas, researches, and always come up with great places to stay and eat. We thoroughly enjoyed our selves, and recommend Vision Motorcycle Tours to anyone looking for a relaxing, enjoyable way to bike for a holiday.

    Also a shout out to EagleRider, we cannot say enough about the staff and service we
    received from them the 3 times we have rented from them. Vision Motorcycle Tours and Eaglerider are
    a great mix to having an awesome holiday!

  16. Julie Mangan - Purth, Australia says:

    Thanks so much Larry, it was something Paul will never forget for his 50th birthday!! He had an amazing time thanks to your organisation. Still can’t believe it all came together from organising over here in Australia, via UK to USA, isn’t technology brilliant!

    Paul will never forget his fantastic day, thanks to you all, very well done!!!

  17. Jon Erik Bjore - Norway says:

    As an enthusiastic motorcycle driver from Norway, I had a dream of riding a Harley Davidson Ultra into Death Valley, and Vision Motorcycle Tours made it come through far above my expections!

    Found Visionmotorcycletours.com through internet, and sent a request for a one day trip. Got a friendly answer from Larry with some additional questions to make sure he found the best possible trip to meet my expectations. From there on it just got better. Within shortly I got an proposal just as I had requested with all information needed. Larry also told me that at the date I had requested he was out of the country, but will make sure I’ll be well taken care of.

    A week before the trip, Larry sent all necessary details on mail including pickup locations, name of the guide, and all other practicalities. Couldn’t have been done better.

    The day of the ride I was picked up as told on time and driven to Eagle Rider for picking up the bike. There I was met by my guide for the day – the Larry P – and helped with the process.

    Then we left for the trip together with a couple of friends of Larry . That really made the whole day even better and was a postive surprise. Larry P had really found a great route and had control of everything throughout the day. It was just an fantastic experience and all thanks to Vision Motorcycle Tours and the two Larrys.

    The return of the bike was just as well organized as the rest. Larry P. guided us back to EagleRiders location 5 minutes before their closing time, and a long day was close to an end with only positive impressions. All honour to Vision Motorcycle Tours. Thank you. Will sign up for a new and longer trip when visiting Las Vegas next time.

  18. Paul & Denise Hart - Cornwall England says:

    We first met Larry at the motor cycle show at the NEC in Birmingham England in 2015, having explained that we wanted to celebrate my 60th birthday and part of Route 66 was something that I wanted to do.
    Larry came up with a plan that more than met our expectations, not only were the hotels small and friendly and just as you would imagine on Route 66 so were the places that Larry recommended to eat which were just perfect .
    Every detail of the trip was well planned taking us from long straights to winding mountain roads with fantastic views. The whole trip gave us the experience and loads of memories.
    Larry is a great guy , a fantastic guide and a true gent .
    We had the pleasure to meet Larrys wife Jill who we had heard so much about on the trip .
    Larry is already planning next years trip for 2017

  19. Jean Harris from the UK says:

    I first came to Vegas in 2011 I for my sons wedding. Whilst here a friend and I booked the Red Rock Canyon ride. It was so brilliant that we booked the Valley of Fire trip a couple of days later. We really enjoyed the trips and always felt safe and well looked after. The rides were comfortable and we made several stops for pictures and lunch.

    A couple of years ago I was going to Orlando and wanted to have a Harley ride around the area and could not find anyone who did day tours like Larry and Jill so I contacted them and Larry put me in touch with some Harley enthusiasts in Orlando and they very kindly took me out for a trip one afternoon.
    I have now returned to Vegas for a couple of days whilst on a tour of USA and contacted Vision Tours again to arrange a day trip to Route 66. Larry picked me up from the hotel and off we went. It was a wonderful day out. I had chance to take lots of pics and when we stopped at Oatman for lunch and to look around I never felt rushed or missed anything.
    I would always recommend this as a highlight of anyone’s trip over here.

    A road trip on a Harley and with Vision Motorcycle Tours means you will ‘ FEEL it not just SEE it’

    Thanks again for such a wonderful time

  20. Jackie and Mark From the UK says:

    We have just returned to the UK after spending time in Vegas and going on the ride of our lives with Larry.
    From the very first contact, right up to the end of the tour, Larry was super professional and took into account our every request. The tour to Death Valley went well and Larry’s knowledge of the area is outstanding. He is a really considerate tour guide and knows all the best spots for the chance to take great photos. Thank you so much Larry for the kindness shown on our tour and going the extra mile to ensure our safety at all times. We would both highly recommend anyone considering a bike tour to go with Vision Motorcycle Tours, you will definitely not be disappointed.

  21. Matt form New Jersey says:

    As always another GREAT ride with Larry! This has been our third trip with Larry and its just one epic ride after another. With nothing but piece of mind on the tour, fantastic scenery, and good company I can’t say thank you enough for showing us a memorable time and sharing your friendship. Until next time, RIDE ON!

  22. Arien & Calum from Holland says:

    Dear Larry and Martin,

    After our first night in our own bed and able to digest the experience you’ve given us, I wanted to send both of you a thank you message.

    Last year, Calum and I spoke with various travel organizations to book our experience of a lifetime. Most of them offered similar trips, but we’ve chosen Crossroads for the people (Rene and Ronald). When we found out that neither of them was doing the tour, we were disappointed an a bit worried. How wrong we were.

    Beside the fact that both of you are fantastic people we also had a great click in our opinion.
    Larry you guided the group safely over the American roads, with your meticulous planning. Martin you complimented Larry fantastically well, with no complaints and a great sense of humor.
    Both of you did give us that experience of a lifetime and with all respect to Ronald and Rene, we’re not sure if they could have done a better job.

    Words can’t express the experience both of you given us.
    Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

    Kind regards,

    Ariën and Calum

  23. Kevin and Tina - Scotland says:

    As part of our honeymoon, Tina and I decided that we’d like to do a motorcycle tour. We contacted Larry and Jill from Vision Motorcycle Tours who were very helpful and recommended a specific tour that would suit our needs. The three day tour was unforgettable, riding through some of the most amazing scenery we’d ever seen, exploring many towns collecting souvenirs along the way. Larry kept us both up to date on where we were and told us the history of all the places we visited. Due to the very high temperatures, Larry was on the ball, keeping us hydrated and making sure we weren’t struggling in the heat. All in all, we had an amazing and unforgettable experience thanks to Larry & Jill and Vision Motorcycle Tours. Anyone wishing to book a motorcycle ride should contact Larry and Jill and treat yourself to a trip of a lifetime. We will be back… guaranteed! All the best and thanks for the amazing memories, Kevin and Tina.

  24. Becky and Kevin Kocher (Batman) - Washington says:

    The best experience of my life! The sites and Larry and Jill were awesome! I’m already making plans to come back and do a longer tour. I couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much for showing us the beauty in the desert and for the wonderful company. Anyone who goes to Vegas needs to book a tour because there is so much more to the area besides gambling. Kudos to our chef’s Pete & Jolie for an amazing gourmet lunch at Seven Sisters in Valley of Fire!

  25. Carl and Brenda Kasas - Saskatchewan Canada says:

    We would like to say a big “THANKYOU” to Larry of Visiion Motorcycle Tours. We booked 3 days of day trips around Vegas, we were down for the family wedding. Best decision we ever made, riding in April just about unheard of in Saskatchewan, Canada. Larry took great care of us, had some awesome riding, and the scenery unbelievable. Larry is very knowledgeable about the areas we went(Valley of Fire, Death Valley,Oatman,Ar) We highly recommend vision motorcycle tours, can’t say enough good about our experience. Just ‘AWESOME”

  26. Raf Smeets - Belgium says:

    We’re almost 3 weeks back home from the Go West Bike Ride. I still remember it every day as one of the most memorable experience of my life! Thanks of all the superb cares of Larry who guided our group of 19 friends through Nevada, California and Arizona. He showed us the most exceptional places and made all the necessary dinner and hotel arrangements for us so didn’t have to worry of everything !
    Larry, thank you for giving us the time of lives. We’ll sure join you for a next ride ! You’re the best !

  27. Tommy McLoughlin - Ireland says:

  28. Adrian Howard, UK says:

    Had a day in Vegas at the end of a 2 week holiday in USA to celebrate my 50th Birthday. Thought it would be nice to end the holiday with a Harley ride. After searching the internet found Vision Motorcycles and was impressed with the previous comments. Contacted Larry to see if he could organise a half day tour for my wife and me. I have not ridden a bike for over 25 year and was a bit apprehensive about my wife riding pillion with me. Prompt reply from Larry assured me that everything would be ok, with my wife riding pillion with a guide. Everything was arranged via e-mail including collection from our hotel to the hire shop. Larrys wife Jill was our guide. She met us at the hire shop and immediately was very reassuring to any fears i may have, even let me do a couple of practice laps around the car park before we hit the open road for a tour of Red Rock Canyon. Anyway the ride was an absolute blast despite the temperature being over 100 degrees. Jill was a pleasure to be with, courteous, informative and funny. It left me with a big big smile on my face.
    Thanks both to Larry and Jill for making this happen

  29. Alison Neary, Glens Falls NY says:

    OK, so I was in Vegas with my husband. He was busy with work and I needed something other than casino’s to keep me busy. With some research, we found Vision Motorcycle Tours. The Valley of Fire sounded like a perfect day trip. Contacted Larry with regards to date and trip and within 24 hours I had a response and a trip planned. From the hotel pick up to the various stops, lunch and a quick downpour on the interstate, the trip was EXCELLENT!! Larry has a wealth of information regarding the area. The pace of the ride was perfect. I am looking forward to another trip with Larry and Vision Motorcycle Tours .

  30. Phil Hayden - UK says:

    I contacted Larry with Vision Motorcycle Tours months in advance of my holiday and he had everything arranged for me when I arrived. I had been looking forward to the day for months and I wasn’t disappointed and the icing on the cake was the fantastic company Dale and Julie provided on the ride. They made me feel really welcome and were a blast. The Valley of Fire Tour was more than I expected and would recommend Vision Motorcycle Tours to anyone visiting Las Vegas.
    Phill – UK

  31. Chris and Katie Russell - UK says:

    We had a brilliant day with Larry riding out to The Valley of Fire. Brilliantly organised and really enjoyed his company. In addition he organised an excellent ‘ride the strip’ event for our 55 staff that they have never stopped talking about. Have no hesitation in recommending Vision Motorcycle Tours

  32. Pete Boucos, USA says:

    While in Las Vegas, NV I contacted Larry Petsche of Vision Motorcycle Tours. I had a free day and wanted to ride to Valley of Fire as I heard it was very scenic. Larry said it would be no problem and arraigned everything from having Eagle Rider pick me up from my hotel and taking me to the Eagle Rider shop. The tour was more than what I was expecting. Beautiful cliffs and scenic view. More than that, Larry was very knowledgeable about the Valley of Fire and gave good insights as to the formation of the rocks. I would highly recommend this tour and Vison Motorcycle Tours if you ever come to Vegas.

  33. Sandy Chennell - UK says:

    In planning our trip of a lifetime back to the States ( we are from Perth Australia ), we wanted to include a Harley ride in Vegas. After several emails between Larry and my brother Bob, we chose Vision Motorcycle tours. We couldn’t have picked anyone better to ride with. We had Larry and Pete take us out to Oatman. Wow such beautiful views, even with the heart in mouth section of road, all those twists and turns. Simply wonderful. Larry was very helpful from the first contact made. We came away from our day feeling like we had made a new friend and can’t wait to catch up the next time we get to Vegas. These guys are the best, so if you want to ride in and around Vegas, don’t look anywhere else. Thanks Larry and Pete.
    Sandy, Sid, Bob and Rosie

  34. Heather & Dale Cosh, CANADA says:

    We visited Las Vegas in September 2013 and pre-booked a one day tour with Vision MC Tours. Larry & Jill were quick to respond to our email inquiries ahead of time, to offer valuable advice regarding tour and bike choices, and to stay in contact with us by email regularly after our arrival leading up to our tour day to ensure all details were looked after. We had complimentary hotel pick up and drop-off via Eaglerider which is where you get your bike rental from. Larry was heading out on a multi-day tour the day of our tour but still made a point of finding us at Eaglerider and introducing himself before we headed out. Our riding buddies were friends of Larry & Jill, Robert and Betty, and they both were so friendly and down-to-earth; great guides for our desert ride! Beautiful scenery out to Lake Mead and the Valley of Fire, a super day all around. Many thanks Vision MC Tours!

  35. Prash and Priya Paramanathan, Sydney, AUS says:

    First of all, let me start this review by shouting out a special thanks to Larry Petsche and Jill Petsche for their hospitality whilst we were in Vegas.
    I contacted Larry a few months ago from Sydney. I was on google looking for a Harley tour in Vegas. I came across Vision Motorcycle Tours and sent Larry and email straight away. Due to the time difference from Australia and USA, Larry got back to me within 6 hours of me email in regards to the business and gave me a range of options to choose from. I was blown away by the speed and options provided.
    I was initially daunted by the idea of driving on the wrong side of the road, let alone riding a Harley. Larry was very helpful and answered each of my annoying email courteously and calmed me down. He provided me with his and Jill’s contact details and asked that i contact him 2 days prior to the ride to confirm when we were in the US.
    On the day of the ride, Larry sent a car to pick us up from the hotel and took us to the rental place and had the Electra Glide ready.
    The ride was amazing. The scenery was amazing. Larry and Jill were amazing and very hospitable. Larry even hooked me up with great gear from the local Harley store. Thanks man.
    I seriously recommend Larry for a great time riding in the US. Next time, my wife and i will go on a 4 day ride with Larry and Jill. Thanks guys. Looking forward till next year.

  36. Jan, Anna, Shirley & Caroline; London says:

    After a recommendation from Nikki Bibby (see below) we contacted Jill & Larry to see if they could provide 4 bikes and riders for us to do a morning Hoover Dam trip whilst on the Las Vegas bit of our US trip. They did and we had an amzing morning with Jill and the guys. For Anna and Caroline who had not been on bikes before, the organisation, preparation and support recieved from Jill & Co made sure we have some fabulous memories to get us through the time we need to save up and come back again.! Thank you so much.

  37. Julio Garcia, Spain says:

    Just last week I finished a two week motorcycle tour of Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica. It was a wonderful time spent on the road. Larry was very knowledgeable, friendly , fun and, above all, kept safety in the forefront. If you ever want to make this trip of a lifetime, I highly recommend Larry as your guide. Thanks Larry for all that you did. It was a pleasure to get to know you and be a part of a great tour.

  38. Nikki Bibby, England says:

    I contacted Jill & Larry last October about the possibility of a ride out to the Hoover Dam from Vegas as a pillion and they were able to take me out, providing all the gear I needed. Larry collected me my hotel and took me to the Hoover Dam via the local lake & Boulder City . The bike was fab & Larry is very cool with loads of local knowledge. Would thoroughly recommend them.

  39. VIC n DOT, England says:

    Hi Folks

    To anyone browsing this site looking for a motorcycle tour your questions will be; are they good, can they provide what we want, can they cater for our needs, will they go that extra mile? The simple answer is YES.
    In every way we got more than we’d expected, the organisation from start to finish was smooth and effortless, the days rides sooo exceeded our expectations. The places we visited and stayed were what we had hoped they would be and better! And the friends we made…well if you make good friends then that says it all!
    As for your hosts and tour guides Larry and Jill, the effort they put in for your comfort and pleasure is monumental and second to none. They become part of your group and look forward to the same fun and excitement as YOU, their customer and friend.


  40. Guy and Bev Foreman, Canada says:

    Tour of Utah June 2012 with Vision Motorcycle tours!

    What can we say? The words great, fantastic, unbelievable, out of this world, etc. cannot begin to describe the scenery we saw while on our tour through Utah. The great thing about the tour is that this was only half of the enjoyment that Larry and Jill presented all of us that ventured out with them for a fun filled week.

    We were all treated like and did become friends instead of customers. Larry and Jill went far beyond requirements to insure that the whole group had a fantastic holiday. Their knowledge of travelling through the desert, history, eating locations and the best accommodations that each area offered really showed itself throughout the tour.

    The tour was set up in a way that each day had us feeling that we had seen the most magnificent scenery available only to be surprised at what the next day held for us. The riding terrain had something for everyone. From long straight runs through the desert, rolling terrain in the valleys and thrilling S turns and switch backs in the mountains. The ride and view going down into Zion National Park was worth the cost of the tour itself.

    This was the first bike tour that we have been on that was set out exactly the way one should be. Instead of a route march, the amount of riding and sight seeing was balanced so we did not feel rushed to get anywhere or become tired of one or the other.

    Everything was set out for us, where to eat, where to sleep, what route to take and the best views available. The only thing we had to do for ourselves was make sure we were in bed soon enough to get up rested for the next days fantastic travels.

    We were also impressed with the way Larry and Jill could interpret foreign languages. It was easy with us because we are from Canada but we all had problems understanding the couples from England with their accents.

    We cannot express the enjoyment and great times we had on this tour and look forward to booking another.

    Guy and Bev

  41. Dave & Chris Stenton, England says:

    Great tour company, great people and a fantastic experience – it could’nt have been better and something we’ll never forget.

    Thanks for everything Larry & Gill – our new found friends.

  42. Paul & Val (England) says:

    Hi Larry and Jill,

    Well what can we say?? It’s simple, a trip of a lifetime organised by two wonderful people who were able to make our dream come true!

    The tour was part of a trip to Las Vegas where we and 3 other motorcycling couples were visiting to see our friends Vic and Dot get married with a full blown Elvis wedding experience. As we’d all talked about doing a Harley tour down Route 66 for years this was the perfect opportunity to make this dream come true. We saw Vision Motorcycle Tours on the Las Vegas Harley website so thought they must be OK, that was an understatement, from the first enquiry to Larry and Jill we were very impressed with their communications and their flexibility to accomodate our requirements.

    We gave them a big “wants” list and they were able to accomodate all of these to come up with a wonderful tour that will forever be in our memories.

    They responded to all our queries beforehand and we were able to come over from the UK fully prepared for the tour knowing exactly what we needed and what to expect.

    From when we first met Larry and Jill at our friends wedding (We felt they should have the full experience as well!) we warmed to them as a couple with their friendly attitued and great sense of humour.

    Every aspect of the tour was brilliant from picking up the Electra Glides at Eaglerider and being briefed on the controls (which I found useful as a first time Harley rider even though I’d been riding for years) to visiting all the amazing canyons, including the helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon! Larry and Jill were very knowledgeable of all aspects of the tour which included the best routes to take, the great vantage points to stop at, the lovely restaurants to visit and the best accommodation in each town we stopped at including great pools!!

    They also knew lots of great tips to make the trip go without a hitch including taking lots of water to keep hydrated!

    One thing that was very clear was they wanted us to have a great time and by the end of the tour saying goodbye was quite emotional!

    We would DEFINATELY use them again (West Coast Tour already being talked about) to do a tour as it just made the whole trip so easy having experienced, professional tour guides, we felt very safe riding in formation and having Jill on her Tri Glide as “rear gunner” meant we kept together as a group in safety.

    They had a great idea of posting photos and a little video on Facebook each day so our families and friends could follow the trip and we’ve used this to keep in touch ever since.

    Thanks Larry and Jill for the most amazing tour and experience and I wish you lots of luck with the business as you can tell you are following your passion.

    As Jill says “You get what you give!” and this was so true for the energy you both put into the tour.

  43. Tommy Mackay, Scotland says:

    Hi Larry,

    Firstly I would like to thank you for organising what was one of the highlights of my holiday.

    While in Las Vegas I wanted to rent a Harley Davidson and get out onto the open road. Having never driven in America (coming from Scotland) and never ridden a Harley, the idea was exciting and a little nerve wracking.

    The service provided by Larry was excellent from start to finish. Any questions I had were answered quickly and fully. Larry gave good advice on the most suitable bike for the day and a good route. I opted for the Heritage Softail and the Red Rock Loop half day tour and can thoroughly recommend both.

    On the day itself Larry explained all the controls for the bike clearly, I know all bikes have the same principles but it was good to have the once over before setting off. Before going onto the open road I had a couple of practise laps in the car park to get a feel for the bike. The tour itself was taken by Larry and Zack. The pace was good and I felt safe and comfortable throughout, I followed Larry and Zack stayed behind the entire time. This suited me as I’m not used to American driving systems.

    During the tour we had a few stops to take in the scenery. Conversation during these stops was good and never felt forced. Larry and Zack are both easy going guys and easy to speak to.

    Overall the tour was an amazing experience I’ll never forget. My thanks to all at Vision Motorcycle Tours for making this happen.

    I was in Vegas recently so took the opportunity for a day trip, we went to the Hoover Dam in the morning and Red Rock in the afternoon, both great destinations and well worth the trip.
    My guide Ken was great, really accomodating and knowledgeable and I’d defintitely recommend anyone to get out there on a tour with these guys.

  45. Sonia & Amador, Spain says:

    We made a tour on Road 66 in Arizona and it was amazing. Jill & Larry are the perfect team! We enjoyed every minute of our trip. It was our first bike trip & the experience was fantastic, impossible to do without them!
    Toujours presents, disponible, attentif, patient et de bons conseils, ils ont su nous faire vivre a travers ce voyage, une experience unique que nous n’oublierons jamais!

  46. Morten Blach Madsen, Denmark says:

    Hi Larry,

    A big thank you for arranging the Oatman tour with Ken. It was a fantastic experience being on the orignal Ruote 66 and see the spectacularly scenery.
    Ken was a fabulous cozy guy and an excellent guide. Very trustworthy through the ruogh rainy and stormy weather an the end of the tour !

    Please give Ken my best varm regards.
    Wish you all the best.

    …a dream has come true 🙂

    Hope to see you again.

    Words can not describe the experience my father and I had on your tour. Our father son trip to Las Vegas marked the end of 9 years in school earning a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. The bikes were great-Brand New. The scenery was absolutely breath taking, and our leader (LARRY) was nothing but professional. Right from the start I had full confidence in his direction and decisions, leaving my mind worry free to enjoy the ride. Jill provided exceptional customer service and tailored both tours to our desires (we liked day 1 so much we had to book a second day) The entire time my dad and I kept repeating to each other how we could not believe we were actually living the moment. Best of all, even though Larry had taken this ride numerous times before, I could tell he was enjoying it and our company just as much as we were and that made the difference. No rush to get back, stop at any time for pics, perfect. Anyone who rents a Harley and skips Vision Motorcycle tours has NO IDEA what they are missing. This ride meant so much more…and it was!

    Thanks- Matt & Dave

  48. Alison and Gang, England says:

    Having been to Las Vegas before we were bringing some friends and wanted something really special to start their stay off with style and a bang.
    Well Vision Motorcycle Tours did not dissappoint in any way – we were totally gob smacked. None of us are bikers – in fact we were quite nervous but Jill and her 3 riders arrived right on time and made us feel at ease straight away.
    The trip was everything we could have dreamed of and more – all the email conversations we had had made the night just a pure joy. We got exactly what we paid for and more – it was so exciting.
    So thank you Jill and the boys for making our first night in Vegas just as Vegas should be – OVER THE TOP !!!!!!
    Thanks and much love from the UK gang – Ali, Bob, Kath and Steve xxx

  49. Dave & Cheryl, USA says:

    On our third trip to vegas, I got my husband a motorcycle tour to Mt Charleston for his birthday. I was a little nervous booking a tour over the internet, but Larry was very good at responding and answering all my questions. Jill ended up being our tour guide and made our experience enjoyable. We had lunch at the top and got to see another part of Nevada other than the Las Vegas Strip. Hoping when we go back we can book another tour.

  50. Chris Russell, England says:

    We have just enjoyed Larry and Jill’s expert organisation to complete ‘taster’ rides up and down The Strip for our company of ‘non’ bikers. “Brilliant and the highlight of our weekend” is just one quote – there are many others. Excellent riders (drivers) made the whole thing a joy for all of our team – they cannot stop talking about it. Would recommend Vision Motorcycle Tours to anyone. Chris Russell, Director, eDigitalResearch.

  51. Jean & Peter says:

    We had a fantastic time…I had done similar tours in Australia and my search to do the same thing in Vegas took me to Jill and Larry, they were extremely helpful in helping me to book this before coming out and it is by far the best way to see anywhere…you really get the feel of the place far more than if you were looking out a coach window !! The bikes are really comfortable and their expert driving makes you feel safe and secure. They were very hospitable and made us feel like old friends straight away. We enjoyed our Red Rock loop trip so much we booked them to take us to the Valley of Fire the next day….if we had stayed longer I would have also gone for the Route 66 trip. I will definately recommend this way of sight seeing to anyone…its not just a sight seeing trip its an adventure !!!!!

  52. Brett Christina Thomas says:

    05.11.2011 It was our pleasure to have Jill as our guide and source of all things interesting on a recent visit by the Nissan (Mexico) team. The weather was perfect, the locations great and Jill was delight. Not only did she lead the group, but she continuously looked out for all, made sure everyone was not only comfortable but enjoying their ride/s. I myself was hesitant at first but after watching Jill and the “gang” for an hour, could not resist asking if I could “hop on the back” — end up staying on for the entire ride and look forward to repeating the experience. Many of my colleagues — all from Mexico — stated it was one of their best experiences and maybe one of their best “Harley” rides — I don’t doubt it! Thanks for all and we look forward to being able to engage you for future rides — hey, you never know — maybe we’ll join you in South Africa or some other wonderful place.

  53. Melanie Goodchild-Southwind, Canada says:

    On my first trip to Vegas in March I knew I wanted to rent a bike and ride. It’s been a long cold winter in Thunder Bay, Ontario and I was really missing my bike! I emailed Larry and he met me at Vegas Harley-Davidson. I am a solo female rider and thought getting lost would detract from enjoyable ride time so a guide would be a good option. And I was correct, Larry was a fabulous host. We rode by Lake Mead and through the Valley of Fire on a beautiful sunny day. The ride was fantastic, stopped for lots of pictures of the breathtaking scenery and had lunch at the Tu Ka Khan Restaurant. I had a fun day touring Nevada and would highly recommend Vision Motorcycle Tours to anyone heading that way! Thanks Larry and good luck with your upcoming tours! Melanie

  54. Leslie Lawson says:

    This was, by far, the highlight of a recent trip to Las Vegas! My decision to go for a ride around the Vegas area was very short notice and Larry delivered. I emailed Vision Motorcycle Tours Monday morning and by the time I departed Calgary, Alberta on Wednesday afternoon we had a plan in place and I found myself sitting on a Fat Boy Thursday morning heading to Red Rock Canyon. It was that easy! Larry arranged everything; all I had to do was show up! Being a solo female rider I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect, but Larry truly is a class-act man. I had such a great day touring with him through the canyon, with a stop at the ever-popular “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and, of course, a cruise along the strip to complete the adventure. So cool! I will definately be a repeat customer. Thanks Larry!

  55. Allen & Penny says:

    What a great time and experience we had with Larry and our guide Ken. We could not have been more happy from start to finish. Larry was always quick to get back to me with any questions before we arrived. Once we arrived the weather looked to be great so we called Ken and asked if it would be possible to add another day – he said they would work on it – and they did and made it happen!! This is definitely the way to go so that you can enjoy the scenery and not have to worry about watching for roads and signs. Hope to be back and enjoy the same great service again next year!!

  56. Patrick, France says:

    I’m not a biker, Fabienne and her son Marin to. We were in holidays in the USA for around two weeks visiting Los Angeles, San Francisco and within Las Vegas for three days, and it was not acceptable to be in “Sin City” without a ride on a Harley Davidson! After a request to the Harley Davidson dealer in Las Vegas, I have been put through Larry’s organisation, and the dream become true!
    I fully agree with Attila’s comments : Larry is a strongly professional very friendly and customer focused. Our requirements were quite simple : a pick up at our hotel and a ride on the strip and downtwon old Las Vegas. In a few mails the details were checked and agreed, and from this time we had just to wait for the magic date : February, 15th at 5pm… and start the countdown!
    When we met, at Monte Carlo, we found not a provider on the go to deliver a service to its customer, but three friends with three beautiful Harley Davidson and we started the ride with the luck to have a nice weather for this fabulous sunset ride on the Strip. Our eyes are still full of wonderful souvenirs and it’s is really magic to visit and see Las Vegas, its crowd, its lights, its atmosphere, in such wonderful conditions! We have again and again the smooth noise of the motors in our ears and full of incredible details in our memories!
    During all our holidays we met a lot of nice people, we saw scenics sites, and we enjoy all, but to be honest, Larry, with you and your friends, this two hours are really our must !
    Again, thank you for those to short magic hours spent with you and all your team, but as soon as we come back to Las Vegas, my friend, let’s start again!
    it is unforgetable, and what an experience !
    Thank you and see you soon!

  57. Attila, USA says:

    Larry is not only a great guide who exceeded my expectations but also one of the nicest guys you can ever meet! I could not imagine the whole process being easier and more fun, starting with the reservation until the minute I returned the bike and left Vegas.

    Larry was kind, friendly and very professional since we made first e-mail contact. He listened to me and understood what I wanted and needed. He answered all my questions right away. Made great recommendations for the bikes to rent and places to visit, which I am so glad I listened to him. The arrangements were a breeze for me. I worked directly with Larry and did not have to go through anyone else since he is so well connected with the HD folks up there in LV. The bikes were ready on the dates and times that I needed them, so was Larry. He was always prompt and kept the schedule and pace exactly the way I wanted it. We were never too early or late for anything. He knew the places to stop, get gas, eat, shop, whatever you can think of. He also gave me great coaching along the way, with his 40 years of riding experience. I was hoping to have a good time riding around LV but I didn’t think it was going to be this much fun. Thank you Larry for making it happen!

    I booked a day trip for my husband and I and three other riders to see Lake Mead and the Valley of Fire. We found Larry to be cheerful and personable and very organised in planning all the details of the tour.Our ride together was most enjoyable and we all felt incredibly blessed to see such awesome scenery astride shiny new Harleys. Thanks Larry, you made our day unforgettable and we can’t wait to see where you take us next time we are in town!

  59. Andy Bryan, England says:

    Just wanted to post a huge thanks on your page for the way in which you guys looked after the Groom and Best Man for the transport to the Graceland wedding chapel in August 2010.
    Both of us ride HD and with your assistance I managed to organise from my desk in Australia, a trip to the chapel that the groom will never forget.
    Couldn’t ask for more, 2 brand new Ultra’s, 2 great riders and a blast up the strip!
    The photo’s are awesome, we had a ball.
    Next time i’m in Vegas, I shall be talking to you again.

    Thanks guys

  63. Fiona, Australia says:

    Thank you Larry,
    What a wonderful day out on the open road to red rock. Larry is so friendly and full and usefull and not so usefull information, lol. He made my dream of flying down the high on a harley so much fun. I had a week in Vegas with friends and the most memorial was my big ride out with Larry. thank you. I will be happy to show Larry around Australia if he and his lovely wife ever come visit. Everyone enjoy the ride.

  64. James & Laura Johnson, England says:

    Last year (October 2009) Laura and myself had the great pleasure of a day tour with Larry riding from Las Vegas to the old western town of Oatman. Stopping at the Hoover Dam on the way, we travelled 130 miles along route 66 up and down the ” Long and winding road” until we arrived at Oatman where we were greeted by wild donkeys before stopping for lunch and grazing on “Buffalo Burgers” ! What a brilliant day riding a Harley Softail with Larry as our host guiding us through fantastic scenery —– what dreams are made of ! A memorial, exciting and fun day all thanks to Larry who made it very special for both Laura and myself —– thank you Larry ! James & Laura from England.

  65. J.Vivian, USA says:

    Being a solo female rider, I was very impressed with Vision Motorcycle Tours professionalism. Larry was my tour guide for the Valley Of Fire Tour. He was friendly and made me feel comfortable. The tour wasn’t rushed and remained on time. I would definitely use them again!


  66. Tracey Juda, USA says:

    WOW What a great time we had on the “Arizona, Windier than a Politician Tour!!” I have taken a few tours before but Larry and Jill are by far the most accommodating and gracious hosts ever!
    The tour itself was everything I could have asked for as far as roads and scenery. Plenty of twisties and breathtaking views for everyone on the tour. Larry and Jill make the trip so relaxed and fun too. They go to great lengths to make sure that everyone has a great time and make you feel at ease and at home.
    I love my new friends Larry and Jill and HIGHLY recommend them to all my riding buddies.

    Dear Larry and Jill
    Thank you so much for making a dream come true. Nigel and I had the most wonderful trip with you to celebrate my 50th birthday. You have the most beautiful bikes – it was such an honour to ride with you on them. But more than that, you were just such wonderful people who put us instantly at ease and made the whole day so special. We hope we will get the chance to ride with you again and we will be recommending you to everyone. I am working my way through the holiday on my blog and will be shouting out how fab you are on there too.
