What is a Tuk Tuk?

Tuk Tuks are kind of like a super charged rickshaw that holds two people.

The engines on the first Tuk Tuks sputtered so much these open air vehicles became known for the “tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk” sound.

The iconic Tuk Tuk name persists. Even though modern Tuk Tuks, like the ones from eTuk USA, now run on quiet electric motors.

Tuk Tuk tours have long been associate with travel in Thailand, India, Cambodia and throughout Southeast Asia.

Over the years countless travelers have told tales of their adventurous Tuk Tuk ride.

Why should I consider Tuk Tuk tours?

Modern electric Tuk Tuks are an upgraded version of the original noisy tuk tuks.

eTuks are limo versions of the original Tuk Tuks.

Electric Tuk Tuks can hold up to six people. That’s three times as many as the original Tuk Tuks!

Tuk Tuk tours offer an intimate way to explore a city.

The open air vehicles means you don’t have to worry about the glare from windows while taking photos.

Tuk Tuk tours are essentially private hop on hop off tours because of how small and easy they are to get around in.
