Six Great Days on a Motorcycle
Feb 2020
My wife and I are not fans of big tours, so after hearing what we wanted to do, Jeff set us up with a “custom” 6 day tour. Jeff was great to work with, always responding quickly to emails and making the whole process fun and easy for us. The tour was just us on a VStrom with Marcus and Tik as our guides. It was my first trip to Thailand, and touring on a motorcycle with TBB Tours helped to make it a truly amazing experience. The VStrom was a great choice for 2-up, and performed perfectly the entire time. With Marcus and Tik, it felt like we were on a trip with friends, not just guides. Marcus is a very experienced rider, and he adjusted the pace to what was comfortable for me. If you like nearly endless curves and elevation changes, these roads are for you. They rivaled anything I’ve ridden in the US, Swiss Alps, or Spain. Tik seems to know all the small restaurants with great food, and all the interesting coffee shops, places we probably would not have found on our own. The hotels we stayed in were first class. Of course, words cannot describe the temples, markets, small villages, and the people of Thailand. Marcus and Tik had great flexibility, changing the schedule when my wife was a little under the weather, and when I needed to get an unscheduled tetanus shot. I can’t think of a better 6 days I’ve spent on a motorcycle.

Fantastic Adventure
Jan 2019 • Friends
Did the 7 day golden triangle tour with Jeff as guide and Nat the support driver. Jeff was a really easy going guy with lots of tales to share and Nat was ever dependable support driver and translator. After the first day it was like we were touring with mates and by the end we were partners in crime. The scenery was amazing, the endless curves were fun and challenging. Every day was completely different in terms of places to see, road conditions and different types of thai people. I had a small slide half way in and the guides were very accommodating and changed the itinery to cater for my daily hospital visits and reduced capacity to ride. Thailand was the perfect place for an adventure and a big bike is the best way to experience it all. Travelling with TBB tours gave us opportunities we would never have had if we just hired a bike and followed the GPS route. There were so many characters we met along the way and places that would not show up on a google search. We had planned for a trip of a lifetime and TBB tours delivered beyond our expectations.

Hi Hue, Thanks for the great review and I'm glad you and Yutarvie enjoyed the tour so much. Myself and Nat did too - you were both funny fellas and easy to get along with. I hope your knee has completely healed and that you'll think about coming back with us again sometime in the future. Cheers to you both Jeff.

Thanks to Jeff and Nat for giving us the best bike experience we ever had.

During the 7 days with them we were guided professional and top safe around the Golden triangle , we were taken places that we did not think existed, Jeff and his team have done their research to show us the best of Thailand.

It was a pleasure to meet Nigel and all the rest of Jeff’s mates , on the tour.

Everyday we were met by a fantastic positive attitude an perfect sense of humor , once again thanks to Jeff Nat and Nigel.

We will definitely come back, 👍👍👍

All the best from Jacob, Holger and Svend from Denmark.

Thanks guys. We all had a ripper of a time with you and would love to see you back here. Nigel says that you never gave us a Thai address to send your tour t-shirts to but also reckons you're the best Danish w@*#ers he's ever met! Cheers, Jeff.

Mae Hong Son Loop & Golden Triangle
Aug 2017 • Friends
We did a custom 5 day tour with Dave so we could do both the Mae Hong Son loop and see the Golden Triangle region. It was an unforgettable experience. Everything was very well coordinated by Dave and Nut, they even took care of the weather for us. The riding was great, Dave rode at just the right pace to keep it exciting but also enjoyable. Also added in alot of site seeing. He also knows where to stop for the best coffee shops in northern Thailand.

Thanks for the great time! Gerrie, Wazza, Shahin and Zain

TBB offers great guided tours, friendly staff, well maintained bikes and a thoroughly enjoyable experience
Feb 2017 • Solo
This was my first foray into adventure touring and also first time to Thailand. It was such a great experience, I am considering returning to try another, perhaps longer, guided tour.

My end to end experience, including pre-planning emails, was all top notch. I felt a certain attention to detail that I appreciated. I chose TBB over other competitors mostly on what I considered value. They had a 7 day trip, where others had 10-11 days. Since this was my inaugural trip, I wasn't certain I wanted to commit to such a long trip. Also,TBB offered what I thought was a good mix of motorcycle touring with enough cultural stops to provide a good perspective of Thailand. Plus, the cost per day was well below others.

The actual trip started off well and continued to get even better. After the quick paperwork exchange, and meeting the other riders, we were off. Honestly, I was a bit intimidated with the traffic flow in Thailand. But Jeff, our guide, flawlessly navigated through it to reach the open road towards Nan. (I should point out I took the Golden Triangle Tour). The routes ridden were challenging for me as my experience was based on mid american flatlands on a yamaha cruiser (VStar 1100). My rented Honda CB500X was enough for me to (mostly) keep up with the group. A quick note, my fellow riders were obviously more experienced than I. But Jeff devised a simple plan to keep all of us entertained and challenged on the road. By the end, I felt my skills had improved and I thoroughly enjoyed the endless twisties that Thailand threw at us. All on pretty good road surfaces. It was a great trip.

The entire experience would not be so memorable without a good guide. I got lucky with a great guide, Jeff 'hansum man' Pike. He scouted an excellent route, kept a good and sometimes interesting pace, and also attended to evening meals and entertainment. I can't think of a better person to guide a trip. I also want to give a shout out to my fellow riders, Fred, Rob and Cindy. A good riding experience isn't great unless there was good company. They were great company and made the trip beyond memorable. If you are reading this - THANKS for the awesome memories! I would be remiss to not mention our Thai guide Minot, who provided some cultural and historical perspectives on some of the rest stops while driving the support vehicle.

When I think back on this trip, I do so with fond memories. I had a good bike and a great guide and fellow riders. I am also quite happy with the overall value I got.

I highly recommend TBB to any motorcycle enthusiast. I would also recommend a love of twisties and perhaps experience on sport or dual sport bikes. I feel my experience would have been even better if I had more than just cruiser experience. If you are from America, think of Thailand as an endless 'Tail of the Dragon'. Or closer to where I am from, Ohio triple nickel (555).

MHS Mae Hong Son Loop tour (4 day ride)
Dec 2016 • Solo
TBB Tours (or Tony's Big Bikes, former name) runs tours and rents motorcycles. I completed the 4 day MHS loop ride from Chiang Mai through Dae Inthanon, Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son (my favourite) and Pai, in December 2016.

The business is run by Geoff and Duncan. Dave is a tour guide. On my ride I met Dave and also Geoff. One of the first things you will notice about the outfit is that all the guys are very relaxed and friendly. The main reason I chose TBB was the personal service that seemed to be available from the start, and I was not wrong. I can strongly recommend them as reliable, trustworthy and professional; they will not let you down.

I can't speak highly enough of the tour itself. I have a sinking feeling I will not get to ride like this again in Australia -- not without losing some demerit points. Thailand's roads have to be experienced to be believed! Not for the faint hearted. But your efforts and concentration will be rewarded.

If the riding isn't enough, you will also get to see amazing places, and try some out of the way food and hospitality, in landmarks which they will put together. The local knowledge of your guide will prove very helpful.

For my part, I really appreciated the down to earth and helpful calmness of my tour leader (Dave). He is a very experienced rider but didn't make me feel like a complete novice. I had not ridden a big bike for almost a decade, I was a little rusty at the start, and was grateful for the gentle encouragement and excellent riding modelled by both Dave and Geoff.

If you are worried that the tour might not be fun, or be a little silly, or that the bikes are not good enough, forget those concerns, you are thinking too much.

You will love the ride and you'll like the company.

I hope to come back in 2017!

Amazing week on the Golden Triangle Tour with Jeff
Aug 2016 • Couples
Me and the girlfriend did the 7 day Golden Triangle tour and could not rate it high enough, it was 2 of us on a VStrom following our guide Jeff, however it felt like he was more a long time friend than our guide. The tour goes along some amazing roads and it was great fun, Jeff stops at some nice places to add in a mix of culture and good food and All of the hotels we were put up in were of a high standard so you were refreshed for the next days riding. Jeff was very flexible with the route and if the weather was changing he knew which roads may not be safe. Very highly recommended.

Amazing golden triangle tour
Jan 2016 • Friends
I did the 7 day golden triangle tour and had a fantastic time, Geoff and Baz looked after us really well. Nothing was a hassle and I highly recommend these guys. great food stops off the beaten path and Geoff even took us to some great little pubs for a drink in the evening. A really good mix of culture scenery temples. I am trying to talk my wife into letting me taking another tour with them.

Rent you bike from here
Oct 2015 • Friends
We rented two CB300F for one day. A quick day trip up Doi Inthanon, both bikes had good tires, brakes and ran well. Our second rental was two CB500Xs these were outstanding bikes almost bought one when I got home. Both of the bikes I rented were perfect. I recommend these guys.

Also if your on the fence about bringing your own helmet or not, I would bring one. They rent helmets, but they are far from new. Having your gear on a multi day motorcycle trip makes sense.

This shop sells laminated version of the "Golden Triangle Rider Maps." Really cool maps and a must have for your trip.

Yes they will keep your passport for the duration of your rental.

One final note if you have no experience on a bike, this is not the environment to start in. There is a lot going on in the traffic, there is a system but it plays by very different rules. We saw a lot on bandaged up tourist throughout our trip.

Safe riding
