India Tuk-Tuk Adventures

Drive around India as part of a team and complete challenges. The ultimate bucketlist experience!



The Adventure

Welcome to the India Tuk-Tuk Challenge! Fact: lots of people have been to India. In fact, you can barely move for people who’ve been to India. It’s all “India this” and “India that.” And that’s not a bad thing. India is amazing. Properly amazing. 

But, the next time someone comes up to you and starts going on about India, imagine you were able to respond with: “Sorry, can I stop you there? I actually once drove a rickshaw about 1000km around India on my own, so whatever you have to say about India, it better be more interesting than that. And if it isn’t, well-intentioned though I’m sure you are, my suggestion is that you leave this conversation posthaste and go and have a long, hard think about how decidedly pedestrian your trip to India was compared to mine. OK?” Yeah. Cool innit.

See, we love rickshaws and we love adventures. So we thought we’d take our extremely successful rickshaw rally format – in which, you drive around a country as part of a team and complete challenges to accrue points – and apply it to India. It’ll kick-off in Kerala then wind up, down, under and around this incredible sub-continent, before eventually arriving back in Kerala, like a big, spicy, self-drive boomerang. And there it is. The India Challenge. Are we good or what?

Everything will be ready for you. You just have to get there to start the adventure of a lifetime.

The Highlights

We are sure you want to know more about what really makes this trip unique... so here we go



Our India Rickshaw Challenge does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s in India. It’s challenging. You drive rickshaws. And an Indian adventure is pretty much guaranteed. But really, there’s so much more in the tin than that: there’s Jungle with tigers in it, impossibly hot curry, getting lost and the occasional monsoon rain cloud . If that sounds like your particular brand of fun,

Fun guaranteed

Fun guaranteed

Our tuk-tuk adventure is about new experiences, cultural immersion but mainly about having fun – the adventure type of fun. Where you have to work for it, get dirty but finish off indulging in a fresh juice and outrageously delicious food while laughing about the challenges of today.

Join, accumulate points and win a prize. How do you get points? By nailing various challenges, we set you along the way. It’s not a race, it is an adventure challenge! So forget about setting a new Indian ground-speed record in a tuk-tuk.

Our India tuk-tuk adventure will test your wits, endurance, navigational skills and communication skills to the absolute maxxx (yes, three x’s). 

What else is there to say? As far as we’re concerned, there are two ways to see India: in a tuk-tuk, or not in a tuk-tuk. And we’re going with one.

“We can not say enough great things about this company. We are a couple in our 60s and had a fantastic time on the Southern India tuk-tuk adventure. Everything was well organized, the staff amazing, and the accommodations excellent. We look forward to doing another trip with them”
