“Brilliant but 4 hours long.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Really enjoyed the experience, all the staff were fabulous and couldn't do any more to help. If u r going on this tour get the name of the street in Thai before u go as the taxi driver will struggle to find it from the English name. I would also take a hat. The only other comment I would make is the tour is approx 4 hours long with plenty of stops though. Me and my wife went and had a brilliant time. Excellent all round.

Dear TA reviewer,

First of all many thanks for submitting your excellent review! Was fantastic having you with us!
At first I was not sure what to expect reading the Title " .... but 4 hours" but as soon as I read further it all became clear.

The tour takes between 4-5 hours in Total. But me no means we cycle 4-5 hours. As you mentioned we have plenty of breaks in between.

One more comment I would make is to DO open the link on the confirmation email. That link opens up in a PDF format with map and THAI instructions for the Taxi driver to read. Its a breeze after that.

So for future cyclist of Follow Me reading this before booking please note: You will receive a confirmation email in which the instructions tell you to click on a link that opens up a Map that you can print at your Hotel lobby. Just ask the concierge and he will be happy to assist you. Further to that I would also suggest that you ask the Hotel to call us before you set off. They can than instruct a Taxi driver precisely on where to go.

Warmest regards,

Ray

“Perfect way to spend a morning in Bangkok.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Within 5 minutes of the Siam History Tour I knew I had already experienced more of Bangkok than I had wandering the city on my own. Taking us down alleys, through neighborhoods and markets, on the river taxi and past temples our guide explained the customs and culture. He was happy to answer any question that arose. The pace was enjoyable covering much more than I ever could have on foot, but getting us to places other tours would not cover. The fish massage was a unique experience in and of itself with a lovely lunch completing our morning.

“Highlight of our trip!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We did the Siam historical bike tour which was fantastic and the highlight of our trip to Bangkok!!

We travelled on main roads, through back streets and markets, took ferry boats accross the river and stopped at various buildings, churches and temples and stopped off for refreshments along the way. Amazing!

The guide was really really friendly spoke good English. The information he gave us about Thailand was brilliant.

The tour was a fantastic experience that we just wouldn't have got anywhere close to without it. We felt like we got a really authentic experience.

I highly recommend doing the tour it's fantastic value for money with a full 4-5 hours riding about, refreshments and also some food at the end. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would happily do it again!

Thank you for a fantastic day! X

“Worth my time and money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

It is really a fantastic way to see some parts of Bangkok. Older guys and kids giving you a high five is a perk :)
You can find a video recorded by me here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D727tafH6js&feature=youtu.be
The office is quite hard to find so leave early enough. Around 8 am the area is paralised by traffic (if you travel by taxi it can take a while to get there). We traveled from Democracy Monument by taxi and it took us about an hour.
According to other participants, this trip was much better than the other one they tried year before through a different company.
If you have no camera make sure to ride for a while just behind the guide as he takes pictures along the way.
Water, meal and fish spa is included in the price which nice.

“Great tour a great way to see Bangkok!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We did the 4to5hr Siam history tour which was brilliant. Our guide was excellent with good English and a great knowledge of both Bangkok and Thai history in general.
We were only in Bangkok for a day and a half so we were limited with what we could see in that time and I reckon this was the perfect way to get a great snapshot.

Definitely recommend
