    About The Tuk Tuk Club

    The Tuk Tuk Club was the result of too many long flights, too much thinking / dreaming time and a few too many nights of far too many beers. Surely it’s possible to drive a Tuk Tuk around the mountains of Thailand we thought, everyone else seemed to think it wasn’t. A few months of navel gazing (planning!) later it turns out it is possible and in fact it’s hugely enjoyable and, even better, there are some awesome and very comfortable places to stay en route. And so ‘The Tuk Tuk’ Club was born.

    The ‘Club’ is run by people who have been delivering travel experiences in Asia and beyond for year and years and share a huge passion for Thailand, for doing something a ‘little bit’ exciting and helping others to experience and see what they’ve been lucky enough to see. We are also far too fond of a nice ice-cold beer at the end of a day’s adventure…

    Highlights

    Thailand's only self drive, guided, Tuk Tuk adventure
    Explore mountain back roads and communities
    Trekking, elephants, hill-tribes and of course Tuk Tuks
    Awesome boutique accommodation throughout

    Driving a Tuk Tuk

    Can I really drive a Tuk Tuk?
    The simple answer is yes! If you can drive a manual (stickshift) car then you won’t have any problems driving a Tuk Tuk. It takes a little bit of practice to get used to things – that’s what our training sessions are for – but they’re pretty simple beasts and a lot of fun. Just don’t think you’re Lewis Hamilton and try to take corners too fast……

    What happens if I don’t want to drive the Tuk Tuk?
    Why wouldn’t you want to? But seriously, this is no problem at all. If you’re travelling with friends you can sit back and let them be your chauffer or if you’re travelling solo, the others in your Tuk Tuk are going to love you as they’ll get more driving time. Of course you can also take a seat with our lead Tuk Tuk which is driven by one of The Tuk Tuk Club team.

    What happens if I don’t pass the Tuk Tuk driving training course?
    If you drive at home we honestly don’t think you’ll have a problem with the training course BUT, if you do, don’t worry. Our team will work with you throughout the trip until you feel confident and pass any elements of the training course you struggled with (they’ll give you extra training when we arrive in new locations and keep working with you as long as you want). Once you’ve passed the course then you’re up and away and will be able to drive on the tour.

    What sort of license do I need?
    We ask that you make sure you have a driving license from your home country that allows you to drive a manual (stickshift) car. Even better would be for you to get an International Driving Permit before you travel. If you have any problems / questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

    Questions & Answers

    • I’m travelling solo, is there a single supplement charge?

      There is no better way to make friends than on an adventure like this when you are travelling alone! If you are an adventurous solo traveller you do not have to pay a compulsory supplement however you will be matched you up with another solo traveller of the same gender on the trip. If there are no other solo travellers of the same gender then you will have the privacy of your own room.
    • What type of travellers join your tours?

      To be honest, literally, everyone can join one of these amazing tours. Their oldest traveller to date was 81 (and one of the best Tuk Tuk drivers they have ever seen) and the youngest driver who participated was 18. You will see adventurers from all over the world and all walks of life – however, what everyone does have in common is a real desire to discover Thailand and, of course, they have an adventurous spirit!
    • Is there luggage weight/size limits on the Tuk Tuks?

      The luggage/weight limitations can vary depending on the tour you select. For example, if you choose a 3-day adventure it is recommended to pack light (1 x overnight bag) and the Tuk Tuk Club will store your larger luggage in their local office before you pick it up again on day 3. On the tours that are 5 or more days in length, there is more scope for larger bags/suitcases. However, it is recommended to limit yourself to one large suitcase/travel bag per person.
    • Is it possible to adjust the itineraries?

      Unfortunately, on the standard tours, it is not possible to change the itineraries as they are a set package however if you do not wish to participate in a certain activity such as trekking etc, this is not a problem.
    • Will the Tuk Tuks be air-conditioned?

      You will find that all the Tuk Tuks have the best air-conditioning possible, the amazing cool breezes provided by mother nature as you ride up and down the roads.
    • What do I need to bring?

      A sense of humour, casual relaxed clothing and some spending money (around GBP 250-300 will be more than fine).
