William "Great locations, the hotels and the towns we stayed in were exactly what were looking for, and it felt like we were properly exploring Thailand. The tuk tuks were surprisingly comfy and by the end of the trip it was hard to say goodbye to our tuk tuk 'Wolf'. We've been to Asia a few times but this was by far and way the most fun, interesting and genuine adventure we've had. The team were so helpfu..."

    We have just returned from 26 days in Thailand, the highlight of which was the 11 day Tuk Tuk adventure departing and returning to Chiang Mai. As a family, we have been fortunate enough to have many superb holidays around the world. But this time, now that our boys are 18 and 20 years old, we wanted something special, something memorable and something active. The Tuk Tuk Tour delivered all of that and much, much more. Our grown up sons both have driving licences, and thus were able to drive the Tuk Tuk themselves, and loved every minute of the 850 kms we drove. Whilst the holiday is orientated around the Tuk Tuk, this trip was so much more. We got to see so much of rural Thailand, the scenery was amazing and the local people very friendly and welcoming. The Company promotes, lives and breathes sustainable tourism and does everything possible to support that ethos in their dealings with the Hill Tribes on Chiang Mai province. With our own Thai guide Tony, who is fluent in English, we learnt so much about the indigenous hill tribes, the history and customs of Thailand, and even why the Hollywood classic musical "The King and I' is still banned in Thailand! Throughout the whole trip, Tony was very ably supported by Graham, an English native who now lives in Thailand and speaks several languages including Thai and Mandarin. They complement each other brilliantly and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. We felt privileged to be shown Thailand by them. How could the trip the trip be improved? Difficult to say despite us being challenged to come up with suggestions. I would not change anything. My concern is that this trip is not sustainable for the Company, so if you are thinking of an adventure in northern Thailand, go now whilst it available. It stands out like a "Rolls Royce amongst Fords"!! If you have got 11 days to drive around in a Tuk Tuk but you fancy the opportunity. The Tuk Tuk Club gas the answer. The itinerary for the one day trip from Chiang Mai is awesome, and surely cannot be beaten for one day excursions from Chiang Mai. Forget about driving the Tuk Tuks for a moment, the day includes a visit to two fantastic temples, both in the middle of nowhere and not easily accessed by most tourists. Both complexes were completely deserted when we visited. You then go to what must be the best elephant camp around, get up close and personal, feed them, walk 20 minutes with them by your side (or rather you by their side). Once arrived at the river it literally is a hands on washing the elephants experience! A short transfer and a 30 minute river bamboo rafting thereafter. Oh, and did I mention driving the Tuk Tuk!! No trip in Chiang Mai beats this. So, as you can see, we were blown away by the Tuk Tuk Club. The people and the experiences are simply brilliant. Thank you to all the Team David, Anne, Benjamin and Harry

    From the start, Bruce (owner) was super-responsive and helpful. I was the only client on this trip, but it was guaranteed nonetheless. As Graham said later, it was more like a road trip than a trek. This was a fabulous trip. Traveling in the off-season meant that the temperatures were less stifling and the scenery greener. The accommodation was exactly as advertised, and where it wasn't necessarily five-star, the overall experience was only enhanced. There are so many compliments to pay! Tony has a near-photographic memory, a great sense of humour, and an incredible capacity for ingesting sugar. His knowledge of local/cultural facts is extraordinary, as is his recollection of football trivia. He soon learned of my need for caffeine, and was careful to make sure that extra coffee stops were included on the way. He also ensured that I worked my way through all the local menu specialities, including my first taste of frog. An absolute rock star, despite slightly questionable music tastes. There was a great balance of travel, activity, and down-time. The weather inevitably impacted on a few itinerary items, it being the rainy season, but Graham and Tony were very sensitive to how I wanted to play things. If I was ready to say 'Damn the torpedoes!', then so were they! The video of the three of us goofing around on the top of the King's Pagoda in Doi Inthanon is my favourite one of the trip, and there was only about 3% visibility. We had terrific conversation and laughter throughout, and I didn't once regret the absence of other travelers. ...and as for driving the tuktuk- hilarious! I love to drive, and the roads definitely provided an adventure. Snake-spotting was a favoured hobby- they were all going in the opposite direction, fortunately- and in between Tony's Thai lessons from the back seat, there were many helpful gear-changing instructions to help navigate the squirrelly turns. Views, temples, elephants, chatting, caves, open roads, coffee, great company, jungles, hiking, food, culture, learning, relaxation, exploration, and easy-on-the-knees touring. Loved it. Would relish repeating the experience across half a dozen other countries in Asia. Tony and Graham- thank you! I had a super time!

    Had an amazing time, great experience, helped by the tour guides Smithy and Graham who made the 11 days go by quickly, will be recommending to my friends and family back home. Great way to explore the less seen attractions and hidden beauties of Thailand. Best trip abroad.

    A huge thank-you to the Tuk Tuk Club for giving us an adventure of a life time. Everyday was so interesting and different. A special thanks to Tony, our very thoughtful and knowledgeable guide and Graham for transporting all of our shopping. We laughed everyday and had so much fun with you guys. If you want to experience the real Thailand and get a feel for it, this is definately the way to do it. Let us know when you start "Tuk Tuking" in another location although I know the boys loved the endless switchback roads! Asante sana

    This trip really WOWED us! These guys get it all the little things just right, and make the experience great value for money. The hotels were in perfect locations, some of which had swimming pools which we we enjoyed very much! We were impressed by the professionalism of the team, and driving at all times with the one tour guide in the front tuk tuk and the other one driving our luggage in the support vehicle at the back made us feel safe. The tuk tuks themselves look great, are nice and easy to drive once you've got the hang of it, and the two tour guides really were just fantastic! Highly recommend this one!

    What an awesome trip! The team really made it, we had two great guides the whole way who made everything really easy. Learning to drive was stress free as it was away from the road, which helped us build our confidence. Then when the real driving started it was just so much fun. The accommodation was spot on too, and some of the hotels had pools which was perfect for the days that we weren't driving. Favourite place was probably Pai, the hotel was really nice and we had some ace nights as a group in Pai. We thought the team got it all spot on and we couldn't have asked for anymore. The activities on the days in between driving were great. Loved the trek in the national park too, and the throughout the whole trip it had just the right balance between driving the tuk tuks, exploring the towns we were staying in, and relaxing by the pool.
