    My Daughter and I had an excellent time. Driving the Tuk Tuks was a highlight and a wonderfully novel way to travel through the beautiful countryside. Our guides, Ken and Jaya were knowledgeable and thoughtful and ensured we had a great vacation.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • 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).

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • How fit do I have to be?

      Any traveller with an average level of fitness will have no problems at all enjoying this tour to the fullest. There is a trek you can do on day 4 which is around 5km and on uneven ground but suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

    • Can I join the tour later instead of on day 1?

      The training sessions on Day 1 are vital for all traveller and due to this is not possible to join the adventure later if you are unable to attend the training sessions for your safety.

    • What is the average group size for this tour?

      The size of the group you will be travelling with can vary, however, the average group size ranges between 6 and 10 people per trip with a higher number of travellers of 10-14 during high season (November through to February).

    • Where does this tour start and end on the last day?

      The tour starts and finishes at The Chiang Mai Gate Hotel in Chiang Mai City. You may wish to extend your stay in Chiang Mai either before or after the tour which can be requested by contacting our team of Travel Experts.

    • What driving licence do I need?

      You will need a full driving licence from your home country that allows you to drive manual (stick shift) cars. Secondly, you may need to obtain an International Driving Permit which is usually very quick and easy but the process is different in different countries – to bring along to compliment your driver's licence.

    • Do we really drive a Tuk Tuk?

      Yes, you do! Tuk Tuks are a cross between a motorbike (the accelerator is controlled with your right hand) and a car (clutch and brake with your feet) and all are manual (stick shift). You will have a thorough and detailed training period on every trip run by very experienced trainers who are extremely good at taking you to step by step through to getting you on the road with confidence.
