Q. How long do I have to book before a tour?
We need a minimum of 48 hours prior confirmation before the tour. But we suggest you book earlier as most of the time (weekends especially) we are fully booked days before.
Q. Can I come if I can't drive a manual / clutch motorcycle?
No, but we have a lesson's package which includes one ride in the trails that can must be completed within one month. You would need four (4) days to complete this package (starting from 3 lessons before the actual trail ride).
Q. Do I need a motorcycle license?
Preferably yes, but not compulsory. But you do need to know how to clutch a manual motorcycle relatively well. There will be short rides on public roads & its risks involved. The Waiver you would've signed puts you solely responsible for any eventualities as a result of this.

We charge MYR150.00 nett for half days & MYR200.00 nett for full days. Included are shared guide, meals, shower facilities, bike & gear wash.

Our guides are mechanically trained & carry spares and basic tools. They can usually fix the bikes in the trails. In more serious cases we will send you a replacement bike. If the replacement takes place within 50% of the tour, we will refund you the difference if the bike is a downgrade. No extra charge if it's an upgrade at any point of the tour.

You will be rescued by our truck support team. If deemed serious you will be sent to the nearest A&E; which is approximately 7km from our base.
Q. Are your guides English speakers?
Yes, while most are not natural English speakers, they are proficient enough to hold a conversation.
Q. Are your guides experienced & capable?
Our main guides are very experienced & know the trail well. They are also trained in basic repairs & first aid. They carry with them basic tools, first aid kit & tow ropes.

We do on some helmets but not on the bikes. You are welcome to bring your own mounts & we can help set it up.

You can join other group(s) yes, but each group must have their own guide(s). Even if it's just 1 person we still consider that as a group & must have own guide
Q. Do you offer long excursions with overnight stays?
Yes, we offer this as custom. We have 2D1N & 3D2N tours with camping / home stays / hotels. Please contact us for your custom tour
Q. Can I book for my group & you deal with them individually for details & payments?
When you book for a group please nominate a leader (contact person) who deals with everyone in the group & then deal with us. We only deal with one person per group to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings. However if you insist we treat everyone individually then we will need to send individual quotations to each & everyone in the group. But do note that none of our quotation goes out without a guide charge. In short if we deal with everyone individually each of them will have to take they own separate guide (please refer to other FAQs with regards to guides)
