Adrian is very professional, an excellent rider, and he seems to know every backroad in Tuscany. If you want to experience Tuscany by motorcycle, Adrian is your man. He organized a week long tour that was customized for our group of 6 people (3 bikes). A trip of a lifetime.

June 27, 2018

Thank you so much for your review Alan-Luigi! See you soon and say hello to Shirley!

My husband, Stephen, and I recently enjoyed a weeklong tour of Tuscany provided by Tuscany Motorcycle Tours. The company’s owner, Adrian Lemasson, was our guide and met all our needs and desires for this tour admirably. He led us through beautiful scenery on technically interesting roadways. The lodgings he chose provided us with varied perspectives on local culture, as some were modern and some were more authentically Tuscan: all were lovely and comfortable. The motorcycle he provided, a BMW R1200 RT, was also comfortable as well as reliable, agile, and powerful enough to handle the mountain roads even with our luggage, me and my husband on it. When we picked up the motorcycle, the mechanic who oriented us to the bike, Andrea, was conscientious and thorough as he explained the bike to us, assuring both himself and us that would have a successful and enjoyable week. Stephen and I are very pleased that we made the decision to ride with Tuscany Motorcycle Tours and Adrian: we now feel that we have a friend in Italy.

October 8, 2018

Thank you so much, Sue Ann and Stephen for such a great week together. It has been a real pleasure to show you my region and share this adventure with you. I hope we’ll meet again in the future!!

After searching various sites for recommendations about a guided motorcycle tour of Tuscany, I settled on Tuscany Motorcycle Tours run by Adrian Lemasson, this was for sure a good choice.
We had an outstanding week touring Tuscany visiting both the most obvious locations (Siena, San Giminarno, Pisa, Florence, but also some less visited but no less beautiful towns like Poppi, etc the weather on our tour (10-16th October) was excellent with a mixture of mountain passes, villages and a broad selection of Tuscan landscapes, I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, either hiring or riding to join the tour in my case.

October 20, 2018

Tim, thank you very much for your comment and sharing this amazing week with us! Adrian

FANTASTIC TOUR OF TUSCAY WITH ADRIAN. COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR MORE.
Adrian has designed a tour that hits all the tourist favourites while still giving you an authentic experience. He has planned a trip that takes you over the best passes in Tuscany, to the most beautiful locations with pit stops in the hidden gems you could never find on your own. Adrian is well know amongst the locals in each village you visit and this makes the trip a truly unique and memorable experience. The journey through the scenic region offers the perfect balance between riding, sight-seeing and relaxation with something for everyone as you tour and taste the local delicacies.
The accommodations chosen by Adrian are nothing short of amazing. The hotels chosen fit perfectly with the itinerary and allow you a unique experience in each location without having to compromise on luxury. Adrian chooses accommodations situated in quiet and relaxing locations that give you the opportunity to reflect on the amazing days riding. His management is flawless and the check-in process at each location was seamless with gracious and welcoming staff. It is worth noting that each accommodation requires you to pay, often in cash, a city tax between £2-6 per person per night, though this is no fault of the tour.
The reputation of Italian food speaks for itself! The restaurants visited were incredible and offer everything your heart desires. Again, Adrian ensures variety and while you are welcome to pizza and pasta for every meal, he gives the option to explore the some rather strange local delicacies!
Adrian appears to have genuine relationships throughout the locations visited on this tour. His reputation amongst the locals ensures a warm welcome from a selection family owned restaurants and some unique specials that you wouldn’t be able to order a la carte, not to mention discounts in certain restaurants for the evening meal which was a nice touch.
The rental was effortless and we were able to tailor our trip by hiring a BMW RnineT for 2 days followed by a GS (albeit at some extra cost but this was our choice as we wanted to try out the RnineT). The bikes were in amazing condition with only some cosmetic damage. The rental place takes pictures of the bikes and sends them to you for your review but you are obviously encouraged to perform your own inspection.
Having only just passed my test a month before the trip, I was rather nervous riding a new bike, fully loaded with baggage and a pillion. Adrian was very patient as I got used to each bike and managed to keep a pace that was enjoyable for both myself and the other rider on our trip (30 years riding experience). He took us across fantastic roads that offered the perfect experience for everyone straight off the bat. As a relative novice I would say that the driving is quite challenging with some tight hairpin turns but no problem for a seasoned rider but also a brilliant and safe learning experience for new riders.
The views on the trip are breathtaking and the excitement of waking up knowing your day will be filled with a 1200cc engine beneath as you tear through the long windy roads of the mountain passes is enough to make anyone a ‘morning person’.
There are a few stints of motorway riding but this is to be expected and the majority of the roads were off the beaten track. (I MISS IT ALREADY)
The man himself, Adrian
Adrian is a brilliant and exceptionally likeable guy. He is positive, encouraging and really easy to get along with. We would often go for meals and drinks in the evening with him, which is not part of the programme but added to our experience. Adrian is extremely patient and offers the best advice in any situation, leveraging from his 15 years riding experience and knowledge of the roads. He was quick to tell my girlfriend and I who originally wanted to travel with only 2 cases for a week, that we were potentially crazy. He politely managed to convince us this was not sensible and made for a much more comfortable ride and a much less moody pillion!
He’s very knowledgeable about the areas you visit and having someone like him around makes the whole experience a lot easier and fulfilling.
In summary I couldn’t recommend this trip more, it was a great experience, amazing value for money and we cannot wait to do it again. Thank you.

October 26, 2018

WOW ALEX! This might be the best review EVER! Thank you for taking your time to share your experience, I’m really happy that you and Joanna had a good time here in Italy. During this week you have improved a lot your ride and I would be very happy to do it again! Cheers and thanks for everything

Après 2 ans de report, nous avons enfin pu réaliser notre tour de cinq jours en moto avec notre guideAdrian. Il nous a baladé sur des routes incroyables, pleines de virages et avec toujours des paysages à couper le souffle… Les arrêts dans les petits bistrots à midi étaient typiques et les logements le soir magnifiques, parfois même avec une piscine pour ce rafraîchir. Adrian est d’une grande gentillesse et toujours à l’écoute de ses clients, prêt à s’adapter. Nous referons sans aucun doute des tours avec lui, car cette façon de voyager est fantastique, c’est du lâcher prise total car nous n’avons à penser à rien, si ce n’est à nous faire plaisir…

Merci du fond du coeur!

We are just coming back from a dream vacation, 7 days of riding through Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.

I had a lot of expectations and my group depended on my shoulders as I did all of the pre riding.

But after coming back I just feel the need to express the amazing opportunity Adrian and Tuscany Motorcycle Tours did for our group. Everything was well though out, hotels, restaurants, road trip was just flawless. What is amazing nothing was left to destiny, everything was well planned out. Congratulations and from our hearts to yours a big smile.

De verdad vale la pena! El recorrido en moto por la Toscana con la organización de Adrián fue una experiencia maravillosa. La s locaciones, los alojamientos , las reservas para los almuerzos y las cenas. El esmero y la atención se mantuvo durante todo el recorrido. Siempre pendiente de nuestro grupo. Mil gracias!!!

Muchas gracias Merquit!! 😁

7 days of motoring through some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen on a brand new BMW and guided by a most gracious, considerate and charming host, Adrian.

Most of the riding was on winding country roads that challenged the rider while providing spectacular scenery. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I would round a corner and the road would open up on a spectacular mountaintop Castle or panoramic view.

Accommodations were above and beyond expectations and did I mention that Italian cuisine is amazing?

Great value and highly recommended. Two thumbs up and five stars!

May 11, 2023

Thank you for such a fantastic comment Joel 🙂

My Brother and I joined the Tuscany Week tour and had an amazing experience. While I expected more riding, Adrian opened my eyes to the real beauty of Tuscany. We saw more of Tuscany in 7 days than most people see in a lifetime. Sights both famous and off the beaten path. And, Adrian took the time to share the history and any interesting facts about each stop.

Adrian went above and beyond all expectations to make sure the needs and interests of all group members were fully met. The routes he selected were both scenic and technically challenging, and Adrian made sure we could have fun while he kept his eye on keeping slower riders with the group. Parking with the group was never an issue, and Adrian would move bikes into position for less experienced riders.

Adrian chose outstanding hotels and restaurants. The hotels were mostly 5 stars, and the food was amazing. My only negative dining experience was one evening when my Brother and I broke off from the group for our own dinner and followed the waitresses insistent recommendation for Florentine steak. It looked really great, but was simply awful. Don’t do it!

We were rewarded with fantastic weather for our trip. One day of rain on our way to and from Pisa. Otherwise, clear dry days that were simply perfect for riding and sightseeing.

All in all, I highly recommend Tuscany Motorcycle Tours and will look forward to joining again in the future. Not only did Adrian go out of his way make sure all riders have a fully enjoyable experience, I also appreciate his patience with my occasional exuberant riding habits.

I just finished the 7-day Tuscany tour with a friend of mine. We are both from the States. I am from Arizona and my friend Pierre is from Louisiana. We both agreed that this was one of our best experiences in life, period. our guide Adrian was amazing in every way, Patient, skilled, knows the area well, and brought us to the most wonderful places, both popular and undiscovered by the tourist masses. The bikes were in excellent condition. ( I rode the Ducati Multistrada 1200 and Pierre rode the Ducati 950).
Adrian picked killer roads with curves, rivers, towns, medieval villages, and great coffee along the way. Adrian was patient yet accommodating for all skill levels. If the road was amazing, we hit it hard and then took a quick break for those that wanted to go easy to catch up. It worked well. The weather ranged from rain to perfect sunshine days. It was all part of the experience.
Some of the reviews really cover the detail of the food and restaurants really well. I don’t have the patience to type it all but if you read the review by Jen Dudley, I agree 100%.
Thank you very much, Adrian, and I hope to see you in the States where I can show off some of the almost as good roads in Arizona!

May 15, 2023

Thank you for your nice review Chris!

May 21, 2023

I am an American in my mid 50s. I started riding street bikes a couple of years ago with a friend of mine who lives in Arizona. I must say the Tuscany Week Tour is an epic adventure. I cannot imagine seeing the Tuscany countryside and all of its many villages in any way better than riding on a motorcycle. The Ducati that I rented and helmet was top-notch and very comfortable.

Adrian is an incredible tour guide in so many ways in presenting Tuscany and all of its hidden gems.
I did not have any particular expectations in terms of hotels and meals before the trip. However, the boutique hotels were amazing and the restaurants that Adrian took us to was gourmet food at a next level. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get an intimate experience of all that Tuscany has to offer.

May 29, 2023

Thank you for such a nice review Pierre, it was a pleasure spending those days with you!

June 5, 2023

I have just returned to Australia after spending a month in Italy. For the first week in Italy I had the pleasure of riding around Tuscany with Adrian from Tuscany Motorcycle Tours on the 7 day tour, firstly got to say what a great guy Adrian is, passionate and knowledgeable on everything Tuscan. Adrian ensured we took all the best roads which would show off the abilities of the bikes we were riding, I was on a BMW Nine T R, which I loved and was perfect for the twisty roads.
Our coffee stops were full of discussions from the Etruscans who were around prior to the Romans to which motorbike we like.
All accomodation was very comfortable and very nice.
Would definitely look at booking another tour with Adrian again.
After the tour I also hired a Ducati Scrambler for a few days from Adrian which was also a great ride.
Thanks Adrian really enjoyed myself

Thank you very much Nigel, I’m glad you enjoyed the experience!
