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!

Was the best experience in Bangkok, the guides were friendly and funny! They give us great insiders!

Sugar is wonderful!! also, very careful on the road
