1. North Thailand, Burma, Laos and the China border - All four countries in an eleven day guided tour.
2.The Golden Triangle - Seven day guided tour - Taking in remarkable roads and beautiful scenery with a splash of culture thrown in for good measure!
3.The Road to Mandalay - Fourteen days traveling to and within this magical country. Only run twice a year due to the hassle of all the paperwork involved.(note: you cannot enter into Myanmar on a motorcycle as an independent rider!)
Dates fill up fast for this one so if you're thinking about it, don't dilly-dally and book early whilst the country is still in it's infancy of becoming a developed nation!
4. Retro Tours - New for 2017. We are happy to present you with the opportunity of experiencing northern Thailand on a choice of Royal Enfield Classic 500, Triumph T100 Bonneville or Honda CB1100. Check out a video here
5. Off-Road Adventure - We are able to cater for single riders or groups and work with you to ensure that you experience the best tracks with stunning views and great riding that pushes you to your limit or reigns it in a little, depending on what you want. Click here for a video!
6. The Mae Hong Son Loop- Four day guided tour. Much has been written about this famous ride but simply put, words cannot justly describe the beauty of the scenery, the friendliness of the people or the quality of the roads you will experience n this tour. Taking in the fashionable "must see" town of Pai, a Chinese Village on the Myanmar border, beautiful Mae Hong Son, Karen long-neck hilltribes and much more, this is a fantastic way to see a lot in a little time.
7. A Taste of the North -Three day guided tour. Introduced late 2015 to satisfy demand for those who don't have the time available for one of the longer tours above.
8. The Little Gem two day tour - Short on time or just want a "taster" of motorcycle touring in northern Thailand? Hand-picked roads with an overnight stop to enable you to sample some of the best that the area has to offer.
9. The One Day Motorcycle Tour - out on roads less traveled. The tour includes lunch and will have you back in Chiang Mai before 17:30.
Don't ride but want to get out there and experience the freedom of biking in beautiful northern Thailand? No problem - we can accommodate you by putting you on the pillion of the guide with a 30% reduction in tour price! (maximum bodyweight 70kg)
Full details of these tours are to be found by clicking on the links above whilst specials are published when we have mapped them out and recce'd them. We are also able to customize guided motorbike tours of Thailand to your personal requirements.
There are many companies offering tours of northern Thailand and it's neighbouring countries so why choose us?
The number one reason, be it for individual rentals or guided tours, is that being English and very keen riders, we understand the concept of customer satisfaction and are prepared to go that extra bit to ensure your guided motorcycle tour experience with us is exciting, interesting and trouble-free. Sure, we're in it to make a few quid (it enables us to "ride for free") but primarily we pride ourselves on delivering an adventure that will provide the memories to keep you smiling for a long time to come.
Unlike most other tour companies (many of whom we have supplied), our company owns and maintains its own fleet of motorcycles. This means that when you are on tour with us, we have overseen the prep of the bikes and are personally responsible for any issues with the bikes (unlikely) and won't fob you off with something like "sorry, it's not my bike, I can't do anything about that". Combined with over fifteen years riding experience in South East Asia, the TBB Tours team offers its customer's unparalleled local knowledge in all aspects of enjoyable and safe motorcycling.
We provide most of the riding gear you will need for tropical riding conditions. Included in the price of our tours are helmets, gloves and airflow motorcycle jackets. Not provided are riding boots and trousers. Please provide us well in advance your sizes/measurements so we can ensure that the correct fitting equipment is waiting for you upon arrival.
We are affiliated and bonded with the Tourist Authority of Thailand for both inbound and outbound tours and all of our tours are run within the legal guidelines of local laws and all of our bikes are insured. You'll be riding with either Jeff or Duncan and be accompanied by a T.A.T licensed guide and support vehicle for your luggage (where applicable), enabling you to travel unburdened for maximum enjoyment of the routes we have chosen for you. If your partner does not wish to ride pillion there are limited seats in the support vehicle available on a first come, first served basis.
