What People are Saying about Leysin

In 2 weeks I reviewed essentially 5 years of French study that I forgot plus started understanding spoken French. I was glad I took downhill skiing there. The instructor spoke excellent English (in addition to French) and was very patient and helpful. I brought my ice skates so ended up ice skating as well. The rental car was convenient and I'm glad I had it. I did a fair amount of touring on my own. It may not have been perfect French, but we communicated! Meals there were excellent and more than ample. Bottom-line, I really liked it, learned a lot, and enjoyed it, met a number of very pleasant and personable people. I would do it again." Eva, USA

NORTH AMERICA

What people are saying about MOTORCYCLING 2 & 3 day Neo-Alpine Tours

“ If your aim is to learn the best way to turn a motorcycle on a real world highway with all of its uncertainties, Larry Grodsky is the guy to see.... There were lots of question and answer sessions, chalk talks given en route, and the highlight for many of us was the chance to ride pillion on Larry's GS through the twisties. This was universally considered to be both huge fun and simultaneously very instructive...Grodsky also emphasizes skillful riding to avoid traffic hazards, and spends a lot of time teaching how to read corners. You may think you're pretty good at this stuff, but ride a few miles with Grodsky behind you and you'll develop a sense of amazement at his ability to analyze traffic risks and to figure out what's happening in a corner long before you reach it. His training is based in part on an English system called "pursuit training," in which students are followed by highly experienced instructors with radios...this was the best motorcycle learning experience I've had, by a significant margin.” Jim, USA.

“Arrived home Tuesday evening safe sound and tired. It was a great weekend but much more intense and demanding than I had anticipated. I learned a great deal, not just about motorcycling, and I intend to build on it. You run a great course and it was obvious you work very hard and take it very seriously. I certainly came away with much more than I brought with me. Thank you very much, Larry.”—Bill, USA.

“I am a much smoother and safer rider due to your course. THANKS!”— Sam, USA.

“Just wanted to let you know what a great experience it was taking your course. The variety of instruction techniques, personal attention and direct feedback I got was terrific. I really appreciated the small groups and the personal commentaries from you and Leon. On top of all of that, it was just plain FUN!”—Bruce, USA.

“I had a great time on the tour. Thanks again for putting together such a valuable and interactive learning experience, Larry. It is evident that your love of motorcycling has fueled your desire to create new and useful ways to teach fellow riders. As a student, I find your commitment refreshing and inspirational and I appreciate your genuine efforts when other instructors may be more likely to teach their students like another "flock of sheep".”—Ken, USA.

“I want to thank both of you for planning and carrying out a successful tour in Wisconsin. Although some of the roads failed to meet your expectations (re. pea gravel), the graveled roads gave me an opportunity to ride on a road surface that I typically avoid. It was a good learning experience that I otherwise would not have had... The remainder of the roads also provided for a great learning environment... At least three of the valuable aspects (there were more than three) of this training that separates it from my previous rider class experience is the on-road/real life setting for the training, the real-time commentary that both of you provided, and the chance to experience first-hand (by riding on the back of your bike Larry) how an expert does it. This part of the training may not be your favorite Larry, but I was impressed by your speed control and set-up for corner entry. That was a brief but memorable experience!...Thanks again for a job well done!”—Tom, USA.
