Details

Mid Wales Tours is the only licenced tour guiding company in the UK providing clients with fully guided tours on a motorcycle and sidecar.

Tour Guide, Sean, is a member of Wales' Official Tourist Guides Association, qualified to provide, coach tours, walking and site tours. A former police motorcycle patrol rider, Sean has set up a unique experience, based in Aberystwyth, providing motorcycle and sidecar tours in Mid and North Wales.

Customers are equipped with radios and Sean provides a commentary as they travel around the countryside. Helmets and wet weather clothing can also be provided if required.

The motorcycle providing the power is a Triumph Scrambler XC 1200. The sidecar has been factory fitted to the motorcycle and is fully compliant with all construction and use regulations. The sidecar is fitted with a lap belt for client safety and comfort and was made by Watsonian Squire from Morton in Marsh, a company who have been making sidecars since 1910.

Tours run between Easter and the end of October and, when weather permits, during the winter period. The tours offer a great day our for couples celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, or other special occasions.

Mid Wales Tours allow visitors to experience the Mid Wales mountains, lakes, scenery and highways and byways from a totally different perspective - smell, hear and see things you wouldn’t experience in an air-conditioned car. It’s all about the journey rather than the destination.

Sean stops at lots of places for photo opportunities and travel along roads that most people wouldn’t go on and, having spent 30 years as a police officer in Mid Wales, Sean has plenty of stories to share with customers.
