We had a great tour, Highlander 1, 15 days in May and June with a mixed European group of 3 riders and my wife in the support vehicle. BMA has been very helpful from the beginning of my contact with Ronaldo, instructions and tour itinerary were clear. Although because of roadblocks and gasoline shortage in the Cochabamba area we had to deviated to a plan B halfway the tour.
But BMA managed thru their network of Bolivian acquaintances to get some extra gasoline so we could continue on our journey. BMA made sure we could visit the, for me, highlights of the tour like Potosi, Uyuni and the Altiplano.

Ronaldo is a professional guide with a lot of knowledge on the amazing landscape, culture and lokal sites and attractions, where to lunch, have a rest and get some coffee. We also made some smaller detours for some extra scenic photoshoots as I was carrying my cameras with me..
Bikes where well maintained and easy to ride. No technical troubles during the ride, not even a flat tire.. Hotels are as can be expected in the Bolivian country side and better quality in the bigger city's. That's part of the adventure.
We had a beautiful ride in a beautiful country with a friendly group of like minded travellers. Thanks for the company Ronaldo and to Yerson in the support vehicle, and T. and P. as fellow riders. We would do it any time again!

Best wishes..

Nachdem ich jetzt gestern wieder gut zu Hause angekommen bin möchte ich nochmals auf diesem Wege ganz herzlich für die tolle Highlander 1 –Tour bei Roland und Cherson bedanken.
Ich war vom 28.6. - bis 12.06.24 zusammen mit drei weiteren Teilnehmenden aus Holland und England auf der Suzuki DR 650 unterwegs.
Die Bikes waren alle in tadellosem Zustand und Cherson kümmerte sich kompetent auch während der Fahrt darum dass dies so blieb. Die Tour selbst ist eine sehr abwechslungsreiche Zusammenstellung von Routen, Sehenswürdigkeiten und Herausforderungen. Für mich gerade richtig. Eine sehr gute Mischung aus kurvigen Asphaltstrecken und spannenden Dirt-Road Abschnitten. Ich hatte während der ganzen Tour nicht eine Minute das Gefühl in Gefahr zu sein obwohl der Verkehr in Bolivien abenteuerlich sein kann. Roland ist ein sehr verantwortungsvoller Guide der trotz aller Schwierigkeiten wie z.B. kein Benzin an den Tankstellen oder Straßensperre durch Demonstrationen die Tour super durchgeführt hat. Die Hotels und die Restaurants waren alle prima und sehr abwechslungsreich. Es war alles dabei vom Top-Hotel bis zum sehr leckeren Mittagessen in einer einfachen bolivianischen Familie vom Land.
Roland führte jeden Abend ein kurzes Briefing für den nächsten Tag durch und berücksichtigte dabei auch die Wünsche und Bedürfnisse der Teilnehmenden.
Die Tour ist gespickt mit Highlights. Meine Highlights waren die Besichtigung der Silberminen mit dem lokalen Guide Jonny in Potosi und natürlich ist es unbeschreiblich schön die Salar de Uyuni mit dem Bike zu befahren.

Just rode the BOLIVIA WILD WILD west 17 day tour with Roland (Owner/guide) and Yerson his chase truck driver. Total of 4 riders plus guide. First I would have to say all his bikes where like new DRZ650's nicely set up for Bolivia riding. Big tanks, panniers, crash protection etc.. His chase truck was very very well outfitted with spare parts, tubes, tires, etc. He has a very thorough parts inventory for the bikes and his driver is a motorcycle mechanic by trade. One DRZ had a freak complete ECU failure about 10 days into the ride. Which I never heard of on a DRZ650. Well Roland had a spare'!!!! His mechanic/driver/awesome guy had it diagnosed and replaced in 10 minutes and we were on our way! All hotels and meals were awesome and we got to see some truly special places. Great tour!

I’ve just returned from the Highlander 1 tour (15 days). Roland & BMA were very professional & attentive from the very start to the finish, both during the tour & importantly from early days during my initial enquiry & various questions.

Roland is a very professional guide with a keen eye on safety for his clients, whilst also ensuring they have a great experience too.

Roland not only gave us a great motorcycle trip but also incorporated lots of interesting sights, places & histories of Bolivia.

BMA’s motorbikes are well maintained, easy to ride & gave us no breakdown issues at all during the tour.

I had a very enjoyable, scenic & interesting ride with BMA & would not hesitate to recommend Roland + Yerson + BMA to anyone wishing to explore Bolivia by motorcycle.

Thanks again BMA & keep doing what you do best !!
All the best wishes from Paul Harding, England

I just did the highlander tour. the obvious stuff is great. like the views and towns. its a very structured schedule. the bikes are in very good condition. and they maintain the bike when needed during the tour. more importantly the guide knows things and has suggestions based on his experience living in Bolivia. (e.g.) when to eat certain foods and drinks in certain areas. tries his best to provide comfort in accommodations and restaurants. that is difficult because what the country can provide is limited. always good with wardrobe questions while riding. he has a lot of knowledge when it comes to health and or medical attention. always finding a solution for a personal issue that someone may have. dietary, or allergy, or injury. he helped me greatly with an allergic skin reaction I had. fluent in Spanish he was able to translate medical terminology. also having the chase truck is a huge help. carry all your big luggage and extra tools and spare parts. and the driver is a great guy who is fun to hang out with. feels like a friend. they do all the accommodations costs and fuel and food and airport national park costs and everything so you don't have to worry or think about any of those logistics.

A motorcycle guided tour can be an exhilarating and unforgettable experience for motorcycle enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike. These tours provide a unique opportunity to explore new destinations, enjoy scenic routes, and meet other like-minded individuals who share a passion for motorcycles and travel. did exactly this for our group.

Geile Tour "Highlander 2"

Wir haben unglaublich viel vom Land gesehen, die Landschaft wechselt manchmal im halbstunden Takt , Bolivien hat sehr viel zu bieten .

Roland ist der perfekte Organisator, nichts wird dem Zufall überlassen, alles ist top vorbereitet und doch so flexible das die Gruppe immer wieder eingebunden wird, stop hier oder lieber dort, länger oder nur kurz, alles ist möglich.
Es war auch immer genug Zeit für Fotos oder einfach zum schauen und auf sich wirken zu lassen.
Für mich hat alles gepasst, ich würde jederzeit wieder mit Roland auf Tour gehen.

Based in the US, I have ridden thru a few countries in South America. Despite that Bolivia throws a lot more unique challenges your way. Rolandos outfit has it all figured out. Bike are meticulously maintained, routes are amazing, every hotel and meal is curated for safety and an authentic Bolivian experience. I would not ride Bolivia without these guys, and the safety of their chase truck/mechanic. I plan to go back again! 🙂

I enjoyed this tour a lot and this is coming from someone in his 4rth year on a South American motorcycle ride. Roland, the owner/guide and his assistant Yerson gave us a safe and enjoyable experience. I would recommend this tour without reservation.

BMA did an amazing job… 4 guys, 8 days on a custom highland tour. Great views, twisty roads, the surreal Salar de Uyuni, silver mines in Potosí, amazing meals and decent hotels in beautiful remote small towns in the highlands of Bolivia. Rolando took care of everything, the only thing we had to do was to have a great time riding motorcycles is this beautiful country.

When planning our dream trip to South America, we came across Bolivia Motorcycle Adventures.
Contact via email and whatsapp with Roland, the person in charge always went smoothly and clearly.
It gave us peace of mind to be able to consult with a 'local', who adapted a standard package to our wishes (custom WWW tour).
This way we had a clear planning and agreements in advance and we knew what we were getting into. (airport pick-up, transfers, overnight stays, meals, visits,…)

As 1200cc adventure riders we were a bit skeptical about the Suzuki DR, but after 1 day we were sold. It must be said, they are in perfect order and are very well maintained! At the end of the trip we realized that this bike is the perfect companion for this country and these conditions!
In terms of overnight stays, we were able to taste everything, from hotel to local B&B… but this way we also got a better view of the 'Bolivian way of life'.

Our guide, Roland, came across as a bit strict at the first meeting, but once he gets to know you, he will loosen up. He also emphasized safety a lot, but as the trip progressed we understood why and thanks to the clear agreements we never felt unsafe.

Roland and Yerson, big thanks for this unforgettable experience!
We really had a great time in Bolivia with you.

Booked a trip with Roland end of may. Overall a great experience with amazing views and a once in a lifetime experience. I only had to tell Roland the number of days and my arrival times in to Bolivia and he arranged everything else. He arranged the tour to have many authentic local experiences and several nice surprises. The highlight is obviously Salar de Uyuni, and the whole experience is unforgettable!

Wild wild west Tour März 2023. Roland hat uns "sein" Land gezeigt. Von den atemberaubenden High-Lands, über den Salar von Uyuni zurück durch die Low-Lands. Die Strecke hin war sehr abwechslungsreich in den Bergen mit ordentlich Off-Road Anteil. Die 1100km zurück waren eher langweilige Straße. Die Tour sollte meiner Meinung nach in umgekehrter Richtung und mit höherem Off-Road Anteil gefahren werden. Roland ist der Kümmerer: Er kümmert sich um das Wohl, das Essen, die Zimmer, die Motorräder, etc. aller Teilnehmer.
Ein tolles Land, das er uns gezeigt hat.

We started out the motorcycle tour from the beautiful town of Saimapata and made our way to La Higuera over a 2 day period. Since I was on my own and only had 2 days, Roland tailored the tour specifically to make it work for the time I had. The bikes were amazing to ride and meticulously maintained. I had been riding for 20 years and so I was somewhat skeptical about the tour in terms of whether it was worth doing. That soon changed and I was amazed by Roland's in depth knowledge of the local area, the scenery, the adaptability of the bikes to various terrain and the overall experience. One of the best experiences I've ever had the pleasure of doing. Thank you Roland!

Want a raw experience in Bolivia while on a motorcycle? Well, Roland has the answer! I've been to Bolivia four times, and this is the only time I spent really out in the open. Our ride was 11 days long (Wild Wild West Tour) and we went from nearly sea level to over 13,800 ft elevation. From dense humid jungle (La Higuera - Che Guevara) to high altitude salt flats (Salar in Uyuni). Every day was its own mini adventure! Roland and his faithful sidekick, Yerson, were very professional and knowledgeable of the routes, history, culture and cuisine. Some tour operators will have you ride 100's of kilometers each day, but Roland picks and plans his routes to allow you time to explore, meet with locals, take walks through small villages and just sit and relax with a Bolivian-style cappuccino! The paved roads are awesome (better than some in the US!) and the off-roading was fascinating. Afraid of heights?? Well, I'm deathly afraid of heights, but Roland put me at ease and made sure I was comfortable with each challenge, including a "Plan B" ride-around should I need it (which I didn't!!). Roland's motorcycles are well maintained (I've owned over 30 bikes and currently a 1200GS) and he takes pride in his fleet. I know good moto maintenance when I see it. One look at his garage and you'll see he's quite organized! All of our bikes (6 riders including Roland) ran flawlessly. No issues. Tire issues, yes. But that's to be expected. Never did I feel like I was unsafe on his bike. A few pointers for those thinking of taking on the challenge. 1) Bring your own snacks if you need extra nourishment. 2) Bring plenty of vitamins, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Metamucil, etc. Be prepared!! 3) I brought a Grayl UltraPress water purifier bottle to keep plastic bottle trash to a minimum. 4) Bring Permethrin bug repellent spray for your clothing. 5) Be ready for both Hot and Cold climates...rain gear!! Warm gloves. Balaclava. Wind breaker. Don't underestimate the sudden changes in climate! 6) Consider a silk sleep sack. 7) An open mind and a willlingness to deviate from the plan should things come roadblocks or landslides. 8) And don't expect this to be anything like you've done before! Call won't regret it unless you don't add this to your bucket list!!

(Übersetzt von Google) Guide mit viel Erfahrung, er kennt mehr als die Strecke, er kennt die Kultur und hat unterwegs gute Kontakte zu den Hoteliers. Pro: gute medizinische Erfahrung. Motorcycle Diaries Tour, 6 Tage, Guide kannte interessante Leute um mehr zu erfahren und sehr gute Guides. Guter Rat für Anfänger auf dem Feldweg, man lernt sehr schnell mit Roland

In June / July 2022 we enjoyed a ten day private tour with Rolando Felix from Bolivia Motorcycle Adventures. We = two boys, both early forties.

Everything went as scheduled and we had no trouble at all, even no technical problems!

Reason for us to travel with a guide; the time we wanted to travel was too short to find out everything on our own, not speaking Spanish. (If anything goes wrong you just cannot miss the days if you’re just riding ten days. That could be different if you will travel three months or so.)
Reason for us to plan a journey with BMA; reliable duet to good communication.

The journey went as communicated with us, even the pick up at Viru Viru Airport in the middle of the night was arranged. Thanx Mr. Luis!

I had a really good time in Bolivia, seeing the most beautiful things, experience the most extraordinary nature. I didn’t feel unsafe, not once! I enjoyed the trip from the beginning till the last km’s, and still enjoying the memories 😊

I cannot think of anything I would do differently if I would do it again.
Thanx Rolando for the great experience and bringing us home safe.
