Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

 

 

What services do we provide?

We create and operate recumbent trike tours. Our services include:

  • We deliver a comfortable, safe, fun adventure travel experiences.
  • We email you a detailed fact sheet for each tour with information on what you will see, what’s included, what visas you need, what the weather is like and what to expect. When you book a space we send you a pre-departure information sheet telling you what you need to bring, how to pack and what paperwork you require.
  • The tour price includes all accommodation and all meals. Our support vehicles carry your luggage and provide a place for you to rest if you get tired. Our staff will make any running repairs on your trike.
  • During the rides, we keep you topped up with water, fruit, soft drinks and snacks and we make sure you get a nice cold drink – and usually a cold towel as well – at the end of each ride.
  • We offer a good mix of accommodation on all of our tours. Always aiming for local charm, we use the best of what is available.
  • At the end of the day, we make sure you get a good meal and prepare your trike for the next day’s riding.

PRE AND POST TRAVEL SERVICES
We will be happy to help you with recommendations on all pre and post travel arrangements, such as hotels, flights and rail tickets. We can extend the tour arrival/departure hotel as pre or post tour hotel. We can recommend you arrival/departure flights. Once you have chosen your trike trip and dates, call or email us to discuss all your pre- and post-tour plans.

Apart from recumbent trike trips, we have been arranging unique tailor-made package tours for small groups to Southeast Asia since 2011. For examples of itineraries please visit us: https://asiaprivatetour.com/

What is group size?
Our tours run with a minimum of one (1) and a maximum of four (4) persons. Above that it becomes difficult for us to provide the individual level of personalised attention and care that we feel makes our tour so special.
What about Solo travellers?

If you’re a single or solo traveller, then our trike tours are perfect for you. We can tailor-make your adventure exactly how you want it and when you want it. Whether it is tweaking an existing itinerary, or creating your own unique one!

 

What about fitness - what is the pace like?

It is your vacation and not a race. You can choose your own pace up to your fitness and cycling experience. There is always a tour guide for you to pick you up and the support van that can take you and your bike.

What about safety on Thai roads?

Our routes are carefully planned. We choose roads with minimum traffic and the best scenery. Safety and quality of attractions are the most important factors in our planning. Every day of the cycling tour we do a briefing and explaining daily route before ride.
Support vehicle follows the group of riders throughout the trip and carries all belongings. If at any point riding seems a little hard for you or road traffic looks too heavy, the van takes you.

What is the weather like?

Thailand is a tropical country with two main seasons (although the seasonal changes vary depending on the part of Thailand you are visiting). From November until May it is warm and dry and from June to October it is warm and wet.

Weather conditions are unpredictable and rain can occur at any time, especially during the raining season. We never cancel a tour due to rain. If it’s raining a little, we provide our clients a poncho and cycle on. Moreover, a rain shower can offer you a refreshing break from the tropical heat.

Most of our tours are on flat terrain and we cycle at a relaxing pace, ensures your body and mind will be worry free. We do most of our cycling in the early morning and finish early in the afternoon. This, together with plenty of refreshing drinks and stops along the way ensures you can enjoy the ride and scenery and late afternoon all attractions.
