Amazing day filled with adventure
Best tuk tuk experience ever. We all got a turn of driving our own tuk tuk, and even our pre-teens got a little experience! Bruce and Yaya were fantastic guides. We had a delicious lunch, got to feed, walk, and swim with the beautiful elephants, and water-rafting down the river. One of the most memorable experiences in Thailand so far!

A unique full day experiencing local places, people and adventure
Mar 2020
There were six of us travelling together, and our day with Tuk Tuk tours was one of the most memorable. Driving around on backroads, seeing villages we never would have experienced was insightful. We loved the elephants, the lunch was delish and the tour down the river was something we still giggle about.
We saw so many local sight and shared some laughs with people of the region.
I would highly recommend this tour!

One of the highlights of our trip!
Mar 2020
We've been on many guided tours, in many different countries, but this one definitely stands out as one of the best. The Tuk Tuk team were beyond excellent, and we enjoyed a fabulous and unique experience. Bruce (the owner) also went out of his way to give us his best Northern Thailand day trip ideas. We really appreciated his extra efforts, and we enjoyed several more wonderful days based on his advice. Do not hesitate! You wont regret going on this adventure with the Tuk Tuk Club.

Fabulous!!
We had an amazing time learning to drive a Tul Tuk and touring around the farmlands of Northern Thailand. The owner, Bruce, and our guide, Tony, were super friendly and provided exceptional instructions how to drive. We also fed and "bathed" elephants and floated down a shallow stream on a bamboo raft. If you're a little adventurous, this is an absolute must do trip when visiting Chiang Mai, Thailand

Amazing Day
The day started with a bit of a drive into the country and then you had to pass a driving course with your own tuk tuk which was loads of fun. After getting the hang of driving you drive along the rural roads to the elephants! The sanctuary for the elephants was top notch. There was a 13 week old baby and Papa Joe who is gigantic. You get an amazing meal with the locals and then walk the elephants to the river to bath them. This was spectacular. You get to end the day with a gentle rafting ride with a guide and then drive your tuk tuk back to the testing area and then back to the hotels. Highly recommended.

Absolutely Wonderful
Feb 2020 • Friends
This day trip was by far the best guided tour we had while visiting Chiang Mai! Boyz and Boone were our guides and they were wonderful. Boyz spoke perfect English and was able to share with us so much history and knowledge. Whether it was about temples, Buddhism, culture, food, or the land, he had the answers. We were a group with tons of questions and he loved answering them all! Boone was an absolute amazing driver and knew right when to stop for us to explore the views.

Every activity/adventure planned by them was on par. We visited a temple, waterfall, elephants, and last went rafting. The temple and waterfall were wonderful and of course visiting the elephants was unreal. With a busy day of sightseeing, rafting was the perfect way to end the day. Incredibly relaxing floating on bamboo rafts down a river.

I can’t say enough about how wonderful this excursion was. If you’re heading to Chiang Mai, definitely book one of their trips!

Best day in Thailand!
This was our favourite day of our 2 week honeymoon in Thailand.

We were picked up from our hotel at the exact time we were advised and met our tour guide who was great from start to finish.

We loved learning how to drive the Tuk Tuk and even as a nervous driver I had a go and enjoyed it. It was all quite relaxed and there wasn't any pressure to pick it up faster than you were able.

We went to a couple of temples where our guide taught us a good bit about Thai culture and Buddhism and then we went on to the elephant sanctuary.

We fed the elephants and then had our own lunch. It was egg fried rice and it was gorgeous. We got water and fruit too. Then we walked down to the river with the elephants and helped bathe them before we took the river raft down the river then headed home.

Couldn't complain about a single thing. We were given bottled water throughout the day and our guide really looked out for us. There's a small shop at the elephants if you need anything and my one piece of advice is to grab a waterproof bag before you go so you can keep your stuff on you for the last part of the day, especially sun cream as you're totally exposed on the walk down to the river.

Amazing experience. I'd recommend this to anyone!

Lovely experience
Jan 2020 • Solo
I had the one day tour. The tour guide was so lovely, I learned so much. I was travelling solo and he made me feel so welcome. I did visit the temple in the mountains, local markets, learned how to ride a tuk tuk, spent some tine with the elephants and did the river rafting. It was so much fun! It was private tour and just Everything was amazing! I was so happy! The best tour I ever had. The tour guide went so much above and beyond for me to have the best experience ever!

Best way to use a dag in Chianh Mai
We went on a one day trip and it was so good. We had the best guide who learned us a lot about buddhism and thai culture.

We met another tourist group who walked with elefants and the guide said that we could join them as long as we wanted.

Good dinner at a local restaurant as well.

We highly recommend this.

Best day of our honeymoon
Feb 2020 • Couples
First of all, YaYa is THE GREATEST TOUR GUIDE EVER!! Knowledgeable, personable, fantastic English. We did a poor job of planning activities for our honeymoon and they got us in under 24 hour notice. Worth every bhat we spent. Hands down the best day/adventure of our honeymoon. Could not recommend more.
