This Biking tour is a very different and fun way to see Chiang Mai. You get to see the true colors of the city, learn about the lives of the people, and see some cool things off the beaten path. Koi was our guide and she was very good!

My buddy and I had an afternoon private tour with Wee, which exceeded both of our expectations. Out of all the activities I did in Bangkok, Chiangmai, and Phuket, this was probably my favorite experience. Although every stop of the normal tour wasn't available because of Covid, it was a pleasure biking through the scenic countryside of Thailand. It was a very culturally immersive experience that authentically felt you were part of the local community where tourists would not normally go. Wee was very friendly and enthusiastic even though he had just finished giving a tour right before ours. The bike ride itself was about 17 miles total and I wouldn't say it was difficult at all. I recommend bringing sun protection. A large bottle of water is provided and there are stops where you get to try a unique snack and have a meal of Khao Soi. A+++

Wee was an amazing tour guide! We loved exploring the different landscapes of Chiang Mai! We stopped at various farms and learned about their agriculture. Lunch was a hole in the wall spot with incredible koh soi. We rode about 18 miles but everything was mostly flat- not a difficult ride.

We loved our half day biking with Koi. The route was beautiful and we wouldn’t have been able to see it without being on a bike. We had interesting snacks and stops along the way - all very unique and not touristy at all. Koi was extremely knowledgeable and all around great to spend the day with. We ended with a delicious authentic Thai meal. The bikes were in good shape, had nice helmets, and felt safe. Highly recommend this activity!

Our half day (5 hour) bicycle tour started almost immediately when we reached the meeting point. Our guide Theo was professional and led us through the routes at a comfortable pace. We cycled on a rather busy road for a while and I was thankful when we finally turned into a bridge that took us into a more quiet and forested area. Cycling through the greenery was what I enjoyed the most. We made a few stops in between, most notable for me were the stops at the primary school and the ruins of Wat E-Kang. Also interesting were the eating stops where we sampled really delicious Khao Soi, and a local bakery where we ate fresh buns filled with floss. In between the stops, however, were long stretches of cycling and at numerous times, I actually found myself feeling rather bored. But that could also be because the sights (padi fields, farmlands, housing estates) were mostly quite familiar sights to me. I also wished there was less riding along busy roads. At one point, we crossed through a large intersection. At another, we were riding on a highway. This did make me feel rather ill at ease although I realised there probably was no other way to return to the starting point. I can imagine less confident cyclists would be rather uncomfortable with that too. All in all, it was a pleasant way to spend the morning and I'd recommend it if you are new to Asia and would like an insight into little known sights of Chiang Mai's countryside. .

Dear Whisker11, Thank you for your review. The busy parts of the tour is for only 3 kilometers of the 25 kilometer ride. Yes we are a bicycle tour , so there is some biking to be done but not longer then 20 minutes till the next stop. The sight along the way are for most people not familiar but new experiences. Sorry that it was not that interesting for you anymore. The last stretch on the highway which is a wide 3 lane road over a bridge is exactly 412 meters long, not something to get unease about in my opinion. All in all you did had a pleasant experiences for which we are very happy. With kind regards, Fokke van Egmond

We did the Colors of Chiang Mai afternoon tour with Wii and he honestly made the day. It was myself, my husband, and one other couple and he really catered to what the group enjoyed. He took special interest to get to know you and what you liked and went from there. It felt really intimate and Wii has to be the most genuine person we've ever met (the other couple agreed). Must book with Wii if doing a cycling tour!!!
