Was just amazing, Tammy was a great guide, equipment provided was top quality, comfortable bikes and Tammy had our safety in mind. Those who have been on bike tours before may have felt their hands or bottom was sore afterwards, however these bikes have a very comfortable seat, very soft suspension, bikes were incredibly light hybrids and the handle bars had a soft grip; the perfect equipment for the duration we were riding. I really enjoyed the experience seeing the temples and the flower market and we got to try different street foods whilst on the trip provided by the tour guide. You get to experience the temples at night where there were literally no crowds and because it was at night the temperature was much more comfortable. Would highly recommend. The tight narrow streets and some areas required mounting up pavements and balancing around tight twisty corners, so would definitely recommend those with less riding experience to get some practice, overall worthwhile.

Amazing way to explore Bangkok. The guides took us through traffic and small alleys and showed us many places. We got history from Bangkok and Thailand to the normal Thai. We felt safe biking in and out of traffic. Could have wished for better English, but they tried their best and explained as good as they could and we hope we understood the meaning of what they where saying on to us. All in all this was weighed up by their helpfulness and humour. We can strongly recommend this activity.

The tour was great fun. We saw a lot of Bangkok. The bikes were very good too. Our guide is very personable, spoke good English and explained a lot to us on the way. The food in a local restaurant was delicious and the owners super friendly. The guide always paid attention to us. We felt very safe on the tour. All in all a very successful tour that we can definitely recommend.

The Guide was super kind, we were the only ones who booked this tour on that day so it was very private. At the end she took us up to a hidden roof top bar, which we‘d never have explored without her because it‘s so in between local hotspots. The rooftop was an absolutely secret tip with an amazing view and it was just perfect to fullfill our trip. We would highly recomend!

Very good Guide (Tammy): took very much time for us showing a lot of good things and very friendly and helpful :) highly recommended! Good tour, nice spots and very good staff!
