Great way to see parts of Bangkok that you would never normally see. Our guide Ting was lovely and took great care of us Great way to avoid jet lag by staying awake
This is the way to see Bangkok and hear histories about back alleys, neighborhoods, and the city itself. We had a blast.
We had the BEST time with our guide Jackie on this tour! We believe that bike tours are the best way to see new cities and this one did not disappoint. While the Temple of Dawn was amazing to see and was definitely on my list, the non-touristy parts of the tour, through the canal neighborhoods in Thonburi was the highlight of our short trip to Bangkok for sure. Do it!
Fantastic tour highly recommend. My guide was the best, very accommodating, and very knowledgeable of the city and markets. I would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour of Bangkok. Only thing I would have liked is if it were longer. Maybe an all day tour
