WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Well, all settled back here and off to boring reality in Manchester tomorrow..ugh! It was a great week and life seems quite flat away from our merry routine of seeing and experiencing so much. I thought that without any doubt it was a really excellent week and your knowledge of the area, the history and your considerable Naturalists talents all gave a dimension to it that we would have missed completely on our own. Hasta Luego."

Pat Eyre recommends Duncan Gough.
August 25th 2023, my wife Kate and myself met Duncan at the start of our tour with him. We had read reviews and were excited about our ride but did not know exactly what to expect from the tour or the man. But, from day one to the end of our tour 2 weeks later we were not disappointed in any way. Duncan is an easy man to get along with and generous with his knowledge of Spain, its culture, flora and fauna and its back roads which kept us enthralled all the while. His advice and riding tips to us as we progressed through the tour, made for a safer and much more enjoyable ride and increased our riding skills no end. It was a pleasure to take Duncan's tour and I cannot recommend him highly enough and hope to do another tour with him in the future.
Kate Andrews recommends Duncan Gough.
My partner and I travelled from Australia to do a 2-week tour on motorbikes with Duncan through Northern Spain. It all started with searching after having this idea it would be great to ride in Spain and we found Duncan online. From the very start communicating was easy and friendly, he was very professional and the planning was really smooth. Everything he says about his approach to travel on his website is absolutely true. He is a great travel companion and guide. He has really comprehensive knowledge about the regions we travelled through and is always willing to share - their histories, culture, wildlife and wove a very interesting itinerary to places we definitely wouldn’t have known to go if we were travelling solo. Which led to some great experiences, Including in the towns and cities great restaurants and bars and local places. He was all over all the logistics of bike parking and places to stay that were super easy with bikes but positioned really well to see and do what we wanted. He was very responsive to his group's unique wishes and interests, which we communicated about in the planning. The tour was very relaxed and personal. Only wish Australia was a bit closer to UK & Spain as we would love to do regular tours with Duncan. Unforgettable journey muchas gracias Duncan
We used Duncan last year (2022). If you need an expert guide with an in depth knowledge of Spain, contact Duncan Ryn Gough he's awesome!
I did my first bike tour of Spain with Duncan. My husband didn't want to be responsible for planning and guiding even though he had guided several other trips. It was the best decision. I learnt new skills following Duncan. As you say he has a wealth of knowledge, culture, flora & fauna history the last is endless. A great travelling experience and Dincan is now a dear friend. We would thoroughly recommend Duncan Ryn Gough to anyone who wishes to see the real Spain, stress-free on some of the best roads in the world.
