Office Assistant

As the Founder and Owner of Adriatic Moto Tours, Matej started the company as a way to combine his passion for riding motorcycles with a desire to share the beauty of his homeland with other people.

At a time when the countries of the former Yugoslavia were just opening their doors to tourism, Matej invited people to experience the exhilaration of riding the Julian Alps and the Adriatic Coast with him. Matej has a degree in Marketing from the University of Ljubljana and has been riding motorcycles for 25 years. He has been guiding tours since the company's inception fourteen years ago. His personal dedication to quality and customer service, as well as his vast knowledge and years of experience, will help ensure that you have the best motorcycle vacation possible.

Martina has been with the company since its start in 2004.

At first she was helping Matej in the afternoons after her regular job and joining the tours during her holidays, driving the support van. An avid traveler herself, it was somehow logical that Martina would join the company sooner or later. She quit her regular job and officially joined AMT in 2006. The early days were special, as one needed to do all the jobs the agency required. In the past 14 years, the company grew and Martina now runs the office and covers the marketing department. Her favorite job task is talking to clients either at the MOA Rally in the USA or in Australia at the Ulysses AGM. She loves discovering new destinations and meeting new people. If she could, she would be travelling all year round and spending most of her time in nature.

Boris Klančnik

Guide

Travel has been an intrinsic part of his life ever since he can remember.

From a young age he has always been intrigued by the endless possibilities of new places; every trip revealed new horizons, a complete mystery to him at the time. Growing up he would often hop on his bike and let the road take him to different places, different worlds. When he started working as a tourist guide he was completely taken over by this job. Despite taking the same roads over and over again, he could find excitement and inspiration in all of his journeys. Joining AMT team as a tour guide was a step forward combining two of his big passions: travelling and motorcycle riding. Or as Boris likes to say, he now lives the life by the words of Henry Miller: One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.

  • Education: Master of andragogy
  • Languages: English, Croatian, Serbian
  • In my home garage: Suzuki V-Strom 650
  • Hobbies: sport shooting, skiing, mountaineering, carpentry
