This bike tour was our first activity since arriving at midnight the previous day. It was a perfect choice following 20+ hours on airplanes. My adult daughter and I were greeted at 9:00 in our hotel lobby by Jay, who turned out to be a fabulous tour guide. We had booked our tour through Urban Adventures/Intrepid, and didn’t realize we were getting an awesome historical tour. Jay is a wealth of knowledge; we learned so much of Thailand’s history as we pedaled through alleys and back-ways. We stopped at two temples, one where we were the only tourists and one with many other visitors. Jay made sure we were well hydrated and introduced us to local snacks at street side vendors. Perfect tour guide!

A great way to see the historical side of Bangkok, away from the traffic and noise. My guide was super, well informed and fun to be with. I enjoyed the temples and her knowledge about their history. I went on a morning tour and by lunchtime I was fairly overcome with the heat and humidity. Be ready!

I booked this “Bangkok by Bike” tour via Urban Adventures/Intrepid already a couple of months in advance. It turned out that the tour sold by Urban Adventures is actually the “Historical bike tour” from “Velo Thailand” which I can highly recommend to book it directly with Velo Thailand! As my tour started at 9am on the morning of New Years day, I was the only attendant. My guide, Jay, welcomed me at my hotel and brought me to the bike shop. The bike I used was good quality, quite new and well serviced, together with a helmet. Jay led me from Banglamphu through back streets to the small villages in the outskirts of Bangkok, to the west of Chao Phraya river. She explained that this used to be the capital of the Kingdom of Thonburi, when we fed the fish at some temple alongside the many canals. We continued to see some more Wats and visited the flower market after crossing the river by ferry. Afterwards, we had a coffee at a really stylish location. Jay showed me some spots of Bangkok that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise and she gave me many insights to this unique mixture of history, Buddhism and normal people’s lives in her society. We returned to the bike shop around 2:30pm. Jay is a fantastic tour guide and impressed me with both her knowledge and her passion for her job. She answered all my questions, adjusted the tour to my wishes – as it was just her and me – and made it fun and safe to cycle around Bangkok. I can clearly recommend the tour!

We had a local tour guide called Jay and she rocks. We discovered the back alleys, markets and temples of Bangkok away from the touristy crowd and also the hustle and bustle of the city. I cannot recommend more this visit and the guide, Jay. They are also very honest and rigorous (and reimbursed us because of the kids discount for example)

I thought this was a great way to see the “real” Bangkok, although it also took in some of the key sites - including Wat Arun and Wat Po (quieter and more atmospheric by night). Brilliant for solo travellers - the tour went ahead even though I was the only person booked on! The bike was pretty new and well serviced and the guide (Jimmy?) treated me to snacks and drinks on the way round - he’s also a key photographer, so there were plenty of photo opportunities!
