Greetings from Vermont,

Welcome to the Northeastern Motorcycle Tours web site. There are so many motorcycle touring companies out there that choosing the right one for your vacation can be a real adventure in itself. 2020 will mark our 24th year leading motorcycle tours in the northeast.  In New England, the Adirondacks, the Canadian Maritimes and Gasp, no other motorcycle touring company can come close to matching our experience, track record or reputation with both riders and the press.  We've worked hard for many years to earn their trust and respect and will always continue to do so.  When you book a tour with NMT, you're putting yourself in the hands of a company that's proven itself year after year, having provided vacations for over a thousand riders, many of whom return for multiple tours.

We're proud that major corporations such as Daimler Chrysler and American Honda Motor Corporation have chosen NMT to provide high quality custom vacations for their executives and dealers and we will continue to focus our efforts on providing world class tours for both corporations and individuals.

We hope that the many pages of this web site will give you a good idea of who we are and what we offer to discriminating motorcyclists. Throughout the site you'll find reproductions of recent articles about NMT as well as letters from past participants. We include these to give you a good sense of what an NMT tour feels like from a rider's perspective.

Northeastern Motorcycle Tours is a small company which specializes in an extraordinarily beautiful and varied region of North America. It is our own back yard, so to speak, and that allows us to regularly research and refine the routes, hotels and dining used on our tours so that they always meet our very high standards. Unlike a large company that may conduct tours all over the world using subcontractors and non-local guides, we only organize tours in regions that we know well and have explored thoroughly.  

As a fourth-generation Vermont native with family roots in Nova Scotia and Quebec, I have developed a real love for the traditions, architecture and abundant natural beauty of the rural northeast.  When we design a tour, we look to create day after day of exceptional riding and unique sights and attractions combined with exceptional dining and lodging. In the end, what we strive for is a motorcycling experience that is both invigorating and relaxing. Fred Rau, senior editor at Motorcycle Consumer News, in his review of our 1998 "Best of Vermont" tour, probably said it best:

"I can't remember when I've felt so relaxed or enjoyed riding so much."

That's what we're all about.

Each year, we ride thousands of miles leading tours and researching new routes.  I invite you to come join us and experience this wonderful region for yourself. We don't care what kind of motorcycle you ride so long as it works for you. All makes of motorcycles are welcome on our tours and rentals include models from BMW, Harley-Davidson and Honda. We don't buy into the "one brand is best" state of mind. 

I'd recommend starting your exploration of our web site at the Site Map which will help you to quickly locate a wide range of information about Northeastern Motorcycle Tours. Our new slide shows section is also worth a visit if you've got a few minutes to spare and would like a visual tour of NMT. We've also added a new Adobe Acrobat section to the site where you can download our brochure information to your computer for printing or exploring when you're not on the Net.

NMT staff alumnus, on the Cabot Trail.

Thank you note from Miguel Duhamel, motorcycle road racer extraordinaire, who joined NMT for a custom Eastern Trek tour we provided for American Honda Motor Corporation in 2002.

If you have any questions that the web site doesn't answer, feel free to e-mail us. Thanks for visiting Ride safely and have fun, we hope to see you soon.
