What is a Tuk Tuk
A Tuk Tuk is basically a 6-seater Tricycle. A cart and a motorcycle are joined to make a large tricycle. All in all, a Tuk Tuk provides its passengers with a comfortable way to enjoy Gozo in full view.
The Tuk Tuk is a completely open vehicle. However, it’s still safe to use for families with elders and children all alike. Kids don’t need to use a booster seat to appreciate the views and everyone can be secured with safety seatbelts. What’s more is that the Tuk-tuk can even come with free Wi-Fi.
Generally, a Tuk Tuk is ideal for more intimate tours. We highly recommend it for couples, small groups, and families. It’s one of the best forms of transportation that allows for personalized schedules and more exciting tours to secluded locations.
