A nice way to get around, but very expensive. I only would only recommend the pedicabs for a short trip. There are less expensive travel options.

These guys are fun, but very expensive. In the middle of the summer it is incredibly hot, so I used them once, but was sweating like a mule at the end. Not sure how to get one if they are not parked some place.

These are a bit on the expensive side, but are an exhilarating option for getting around town. Pedicabs have ways of getting into areas where cabs cannot, so it's often easier to hitch a ride with one than with a taxi The peddlers of these...More

Hello sir! If you'd like to schedule a pick up in advance please e-mail us. If you would like to schedule a pick-up on the same day you can call our phone number and we can dispatch a pedicab to come pick you up.

As little or as long as you'd like. We try not to rush you through your adventure, and our time can be extended for as long as you wish. Its not uncommon to do a 3 or even 4 hour tour in some cases.
