The Tour de Thailand Rides are designed to be strenuous but enjoyable adventures through different areas of the Kingdom while we take you on the back roads but also show you some of the touristic highlights of Thailand and the countries unique culture. We don’t want you to pass through Thailand with your head down just trying to get to the hotel each day. We want you to really take it all in and look around while you are riding to truly see Thailand better than any other visitor to the country. We encourage riders to take as many photos as they can and we have more sightseeing involved in the routes than most tour groups get to see. Most riders will share their photos with each other at the end so you will have loads of good pictures and memories of this incredible journey you have made.
Each night we ensure that you stay in comfortable hotels that are always clean with air condition, hot water, and most often have swimming pools. We usually aim for 3-4 star level hotels but in some towns they only have basic accommodations. ALL of our customers have complimented us on how much nicer the hotels were than they had imagined.
When we say that most meals are included, we are referring to Days Off from riding where most participants like to go out on their own or with others of their choosing and eat at a time and place that suits them rather than following the normal routine and eating with the group. Another of our most complimented services is the meals, though breakfasts can be a little challenging at times. Each meal we enjoy tantalizing Thai dishes and we make sure that each rider has had their fill to eat. This is definitely the kind of trip you want to indulge in the food and really enjoy yourself as the food is great and you are getting plenty of exercise each day to help burn off most, if not all, of what you consume.
While alcohol is not included in the tour package, we fully welcome those that like to have a few drinks after a long days ride. Many days after riding we will meet up in the pool to have a few beers before dinner and quite often we head out after dinner as well. We also respect those that don’t consume alcoholic beverages and want them to feel comfortable with the group at all times.
Do you hate changing flat tires? No problem, our staff are more than happy to change them for you and since the bicycle rental comes included with the package price we also include normal wear and tear repairs, tubes, tires, and other parts and accessories. From road racers to casual riders, everyone agrees that our bicycles are perfect for this kind of riding and are in the best condition of any bicycle touring company as we constantly rotate our bikes to make sure they are no more than 2 years old and in excellent condition. Riders are welcome to bring their own bicycles, but in our lengthy past most have admitted that had they known how nice our bikes were and how new and in excellent condition they were they would have preferred to leave theirs at home and use ours. Besides, we have all the spare parts for our bikes and if you bring your own we will expect you to cover those costs. The biggest bicycle challenges we have had are with riders bringing their own bikes and not finding the right parts they needed here. You will love our bikes and we’re confident you will really enjoy not having to travel with yours before, during, and after your trip.
