Transportation is an important element of our tours. We use the same group of drivers since many years. They have strict instructions regarding driving standards, maximum speed and safety. We have a perfect safety record. Our vehicles are regularly checked. We have indicated under each tour which transportation is being used. We use the following vehicles.
We use trekking trucks for our join-in trekkings and some private programs. This is the traditional transportation for trekkings. They have two benches on the side of the passenger compartment of the truck. These vehicles are open vehicles which is nice in a tropical climate. They have no air-conditioning except on the driver’s compartment. A trekking truck is part of the experience but for some people it might not be comfortable enough. A trekking truck can accommodate a maximum of ten persons and a guide.
We use minibuses or minivans for most of our tours. They are air-conditioned. There are seat belts in these buses. There are various sizes of minivans but most of them can accommodate nine persons and a guide. They are more comfortable than trekking trucks. If your program indicates that the transportation is a trekking truck and you want to upgrade to a minibus, please let us know. There are some extra costs involved, depending on the program.
Four-wheel drive vehicles
We also use four-wheel drive vehicles of various types. These are very comfortable, air-conditioned and have safety belts. Normally these vehicles can accommodate two persons and one guide. There are types that can accommodate four persons and one guide as well. The Toyota Fortuner is such a car. We also use other four-wheel drive vehicles such as the Isuzu Sportrider and the Honda CRV. Transportation on any our private tours can be upgraded to these luxury vehicles.
