Matt (owner) and Jo (the boss)
Hearts & Tears MC is a group of guys and girls who have a thirst for adventure and motorcycles. We’ve figured out that life is not something you work towards, but is happening now. With that in mind we want to make every moment count and love to share those special moments with other like-minded travellers from around the world.
We are based in Pokhara, Nepal, at the foothills of the Annapurnas. Our clubhouse and office is based in central lakeside and we all live within 1km of the action.
Matt (Australia) heads the team with his partner Jo (Poland), and the rest of the crew are local lads and ladies. Matt came to Nepal back in 2011 working as a chemical engineer in the water industry but decided to ditch the suit and tie and focus on a life on two-wheels. It was the best decision he ever made…after meeting Jo of course!
Meet Prabin. He's an absolute legend. Always with a smile, a joke to tell, and his understanding of both foreign culture and Nepal is incredible. Prabin has been with Hearts & Tears since 2014 year and is an integral part of our team. Before joining Hearts & Tears he was a trekking guide in the Everest region. He's a fantastic instructor, tour leader and is determined to give you the most enjoyable experience whilst you ride in Nepal.
Meet Surja - our head mechanic. We couldn't do what we do without him. He is always the first to arrive and last to leave with an unrivalled dedication. He also loves the open road and would happily support back-to-back tours all season unless we force him to take a day-off! We love this guy and his quirky personality and cheeky smile are just wonderful to have on tour.
Meet Manoj. He's been with Hearts & Tears for about 18 months now and is becoming an expert guide. His soft nature but sly sense of humour is great company on any tour. He is a smart fellow with a keen sense of group dynamics ensuring that you have a super time in Nepal.
Meet Rajan - The newest member to the team. Having just returned from nearly 12 years abroad in Malayasia and the middle-east, Rajan knew his calling was back in Nepal. He speaks Indonesian, Malay, English, Hindi and Nepali of course. He is a hard worker and is learning all the basics starting in the workshop through to tour management and guiding.
Meet Bishnu. The one and only. She's been working with Hearts & Tears since 2011 and is an absolute gem. Her main role is customer service, dealing with tour bookings and overseeing the day-to-day management of our clubhouse. Whatever your need may be, Bishnu is there to assist and ensure your time in Nepal is as easy and fun as possible.
