I did a 6 day tour with Greg around the Southern part of Negros early July 2013. It was great fun starting in Dumaguete then riding comfortable distances each day. The scenery in this part of the world is fantastic and the road traffic relatively orderly. We stopped at several places of interest ranging from hot springs, caves, a museum with a collection of war artefacts and many more places. We stopped often and chatted with the locals and always amazed that even way out in rural areas someone had a relative that lived in or visited Australia. The locals were always friendly and I felt secure and safe the entire trip. The highlight of the trip was a two night stay in authentic bamboo hut at the Driftwood beach resort on the West side of Negros near Sipalay. The bikes were parked and we accessed the resort by small boat and foot. The staff were friendly and it was a real down to earth experience. I can say the trip was well organised, the bikes in good condition, the and accommodation very good. Overall the tour exceeded my expectations. Thanks Greg for a great tour.
I would like to thank MATPI for a fantastic and unforgetable trip. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area we covered. He knew exactly where the best places to see are located. The kind of tropical places I travelled 10,000 miles to see.
Any concerns I had about the 125cc Honda XRMs not having enough power were quickly displled as soon as we hit the offroad. The bikes performed admirably on some really rough roads and were easy to ride. They can handle off road riding with no problem and they are pleasure to ride on the highway as well. Thanks again for a professionally run tour and I look forward to doing it again.

Wow what a trip of a lifetime, just finished a 7 day tour, and it is definitely the only way to see the country, you get to access areas and see things only possible by motorbike! The tour is very well organised and you get to stay in some lovely locations and experience some really cool things. Bernie my guide is one in a million, just had the best time with him, a real friend for life I hope! Thoroughly recommend using MATPI, never at any point did I have any concerns about the trip.
p.s. It has just started snowing here! Wish I was on the boulevard having a beer with you guys!

Just a quick note to thank you for the trip.
We all found it to be just the adventure we were looking for.
From riding the bikes through the beautiful countryside in the provinces, the magnificent coral and tropical fish at Moalboal, the tranquillity of Siquijor to the waterfalls and beaches along the way and that cave was amazing.
It was an adventure yet still very relaxing
Bernard and his merry men were very helpful and accommodating and were fun to be with.
I will definitely be recommending this trip to my friends and colleagues.
