The Orient Express on two wheels, this multi-country tour is a stylish European holiday


  • A perfect romantic couples riding holiday, newly designed to include the classical music mecca of Vienna, Austria and the city on the Danube, Budapest, Hungary, this is a  premium motorcycle touring experience with the best of accommodations, fine dining, and superb service. 
  • It has to be on your bucket list, the historic and romantic canal city of Venice. Would you like more time? Come early and we’ll secure additional hotel nights and services as needed.
  • The Italian Alps known as the Dolomites provide some of the finest sport riding opportunities on the continent. 
  • The Grossglockner Pass is Austria’s highest and a stunning ride. Earn your sticker! This is Alpine riding at its best.
  • Vienna, Austria. Think the great music composer classics, Lippenstein stallions, and gothic cathedrals. Two nights here to enjoy this stunning European city.
  • The Dalmatian Coast of Croatia with its castles and walled seaside cities such as Dubrovnik offer photographers a treasure of inspiration. Two nights in the gem of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik.
  • We’ll pass through the tiny country of Montenegro but you will not forget its tranquil bay and the fun day of riding
  • Greece. We have grown to love this country.  We’ll visit the remarkable 14th Century Greek Orthodox monasteries perched on the pinnacle peaks of Meteora.
  • Istanbul, Turkey is one of our favorite cities in the world. With its stunning architecture and layers of thousands of years of history, you will certainly want to return. Plan on extending your stay.
  • As with any MotoDiscovery tour, count on the service to be the best. Groups are limited to 10 motorcycles and traditionally run small to permit a more relaxed pace and intimate touring experience.
