IOM Trike Tours was launched in August 2010 by Manx couple Andy & Wendy Turner, who have a good knowledge of the Island and it's places of interest. They were delighted when it was announced in December 2011, following their first full year of operation, that IOM Trike Tours had won the Isle of Man Tourism Award for Best Attraction. This was especially pleasing as it was based on the quality of nominations submitted by customers. This award was repeated in 2012 and in 2013, the final year of the awards, they were runner up in the same category. IOM Trike Tours also received the TripAdvisor Award for Excellence in 2014.
The company's aim is to help visitors & locals enjoy riding the Island's roads in a thrilling & safe way. Customer service is at the forefront of everything they do and they look forward to welcoming you to the Isle of Man very soon.
IOM Trike Tours now have three Trikes available so you can share this exhilerating experience in safety with your friends and family.
The Isle of Man is known as the Road Racing Capital of the World and as such draws fans of the sport from all over the world. We know however that some people are nervous about riding motorbikes but have always wished they could just have a go, at least once. With that in mind we have researched the best way to fulfil this dream and can now provide a safe, reliable but still thrilling means of transport. Although many of our roads have no speed limit we want you to enjoy our beautiful Island and tours safely. The emphasis of our tours is on enjoyment rather than high speed, though believe me when we say 30mph feels more like 50mph on the Trike when the stunning countryside is flying past.
The Island has hundreds of miles of quieter roads that will take you through places of historical interest and breathtaking scenery. Our Manx drivers are very knowledgeable about the Island, its history, people and places, so feel free to ask anything! We love to show people what our Island has to offer and therefore IOM Trike Tours provide a range of set tours for your enjoyment. Alternatively we are happy to discuss tours tailored to your requirements.
We are also available for pre booked Wedding hire, Prom Nights, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Memorial Last Laps and even romantic Marriage Proposals. If you have an idea that we could help you with, please phone to discuss your requirements.
Our Trikes are fully licensed by the Isle of Man Road Transport Licensing Committee and our experienced and knowledgeable Manx drivers will ensure your safety and enjoyment at all times. All our drivers have been Police vetted, and are first aid trained.
The Trikes are factory built in Germany and have been stringently tested and approved for use as Private Hire Vehicles by the Isle of Man Vehicle Testing Centre. For added safety the Trikes are fitted with lap belts for passengers, which must be worn at all times. Each Trike has a 3-way intercom between the driver and passengers and also carry a fire extinguisher and first aid kit.
Your safety and enjoyment are our top priority, so come along and enjoy the ride.
Owner & driver. After a career in the Royal Navy then the Isle of Man Constabulary, Andy set up the business in 2010. Having owned many motorbikes over the years, his current pride & joy is a Honda Varadero 1000cc, though with all the Trikes to ride, he doesn't get too much time on it these days. Andy also enjoys sailing & is a volunteer skipper of Sailing for the Disabled.
H has been driving with us from the beginning & has been a great support in helping us develop the reputation for good service that we have today. A lifelong racing fan & one time competitor, H has a vast knowledge of the history of racing on the island and has many friends in the racing world. When not "playing" on the Trikes, H sings in the Llondhoo Male Voice Choir, spends time with his family & enjoys walking their dog, Lottie.
Roy joined us in 2012 as we were in need of extra help. We knew Roy well as he is a volunteer skipper & great supporter for Sailing for the Disabled. Due to his sailing commitments, Roy leaves himself very little spare time, but when he does have time to relax, he enjoys his gardening & grows some great tomatoes!
Ok, he's not really Dangerous, its just a name that's stuck, though he prefers Dishy Dave! Dave joined us in 2013, though as a former colleague of Andy's, we have known him & his family for many years. Dave rides his own Triumph motorcycle, completing several European road trips & is kept busy with property renovation for family when he is not driving with us.
Dukey joined us in 2014 & seems to be really loving it! Again, as another former colleague, we have known him for many years & Wendy went to school with his wife! He is a father of many, so most of his spare time is spent with his rapidly expanding family & he also enjoys gardening & grows the biggest apples!!!
Yet another former colleague, Robbie joined us in 2014. As a lifelong motorcyclist with many driving qualifications, Robbie is well practiced using Manx roads to their fullest potential. Owner of several bikes & cars, he competes in trials along with his sons, recently beating them both, "which is not cool Dad"!
