Z Motobirds miałem przyjemność zwiedzić w listopadzie Radżastan. Organizacja wyprawy na najwyższym poziomie, trasy były profesjonalnie przygotowane. Każdy dzień był wspaniałą przygodą. Atmosfera była bardzo przyjacielska wręcz rodzinna. Na pewno wybiorę się jeszcze z nimi na niejedna wyprawę.

Best thing I have EVER done! I loved every second of this trip!! Every detail was so well organised and I knew what to expect at every point, from route planning to the altitude to prepare for. Our support crew were amazing! We were always safe and well looked after. Anything we needed they made it happen. Every time I got off my bike, someone was there just in case I needed some assistance. If there were tricky sections, they were planned out with people to provide assistance getting through. The support was wonderful, it was just a great vibe all round. Accommodation was great, always clean and comfortable. Same for the food, it was always amazing. Bikes were awesome and well maintained at all times by our trip mechanic. THE VIEWS! I came for the views & I got way more than what I bargained for! Many times I caught myself tearing up in my goggles as we rode through the most incredible scenery I have ever come across. It was UNREAL, it actually didn’t look real it was just that beautiful 😍 You have to see it for yourself, there is absolutely nothing like it! Thank you Ola & Team for the best best memories ever!

MotoBirds team did wonderful job organizing and executing impot of my two antique motorcycles from Europe to United States. They had plenty of professional and experienced stuff who picked up the bikes from my house, delivered them to shipping facilities and package them in shipping crates. Throughout the process communication was outstanding and they also updated me with pictures of my motorcycles just prior to shipping. Thank you MotoBirds for bringing my dream to reality!

Wspólnie z Moto Birds byłem na moto-przygodzie w Himalajach. Organizacja, przygotowane trasy, opieka, atmosfera na najwyższym poziomie. Ola, Guy i Mat wykonali kawał dobrej roboty, za to dzięki... Zdecydowanie polecam, satysfakcja i emocje gwarantowane 🙂 Ja z pewnością wybiorę się na kolejną wyprawę z Moto Birds 👍

Żadne słowa nie oddadzą mojej fascynacji wyjazdem z MotoBirds. Niecałe 2 tygodnie temu wróciłam z Indii - podróży życia. Jestem wręcz oczarowana profesjonalizmem z jakim całość została zorganizowana. Opieka przed wyjazdem, wsparcie podczas podróży, organizacja noclegów, posiłków, wybór tras. Bardzo, bardzo za wszystko dziękuję ❤ PS Najlepszym dowodem mojej opinii, jest planowanie kolejnych wypraw z MotoBirds 😁 Z serca polecam.

Jest pomysł, jest jakość i odpowiedzialność. Każdy na takiej wyprawie prócz tego co w umowie, znajdzie wiele wiecej, zależnie od wrażliwości i życiowego doświadczenia. Ja mam poczucie długu do tej ekipy ale zamierzam go spłacić na jakiejś następnej wyprawie. Himalaje 2023
