“Turtles, waterfalls, Thai food, and a bike -- what more do you need?”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went on the 'Turtles and Waterfalls Bike Tour' with James and we couldn't have asked for more. Best way to see, hear, taste and feel(!) the Thai country side. While the trip itinerary is planned, the pace is up to you. James can make it as easy or as grueling as a master spin class. We made frequent stops, with water / food always available from the support truck. The highlight is the waterfall and the end of the trip. I can not recommend this bike tour enough, go for it!

“Rewarding”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

What an amazing way to see the ins and outs of thailand, this bike tour was just the best! Apart from the heat which cannot be helped this was such an awesome day tour. I loved visiting the gibbon rehabilitation project, so much that I want to go back to volunteer! It was such a rewarding experience! Thank you to amazing bike tours for the best day we had in Thailand!

“Turtles & a Waterfall by Bike”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We did the Thai Muang Turtles & Waterfall full day bike tour by the Amazing Bike Tours. We were picked up from our hotel and from the moment we were collected we were asked if we wanted a drink or anything for the journey to the start point, which was about an hour drive as we were in Rawai at the bottom of Phuket. At the start point we collected our bikes which were well maintained, the guides talked through gears and made sure that we were comfortable before starting. Which was a good job, as I hadn't been on a bike in a couple of years! The route was well planned and we had numerous breaks to keep us fed and watered, giving us the opportunity to try some seasonal fruit and thai snacks. We were also told about the production of Latex and how the rubber is extruded from the trees which I found most interesting.
Just after lunch we stopped at a Turtle Sanctuary which was amazing to see how they are trying to protect and help the Turtle population in Thailand, plus it was a nice break to let our lunch go down! The support team took great care in making sure that we had water to stay hydrated in the heat and humidity, if you needed anything the team in the van would just pull over and get you whatever you needed! They were truly great and set an exceptional standard for future trips that we had planned in Thailand. And the waterfall finishing point was spectacular and a lovely was to freshen up after a day of cycling! And to top it off we were sent all of the pictures taken on our Tour the day after for no extra charge, which is a lovely touch! Would highly recommend James and his Team, a fab way to see Thailand.

“Turtles and a waterfall.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This tour was very well organised and we enjoyed it overall. The bikes were well maintained and we were kept well fed and watered throughout the day - just as well given the distance and the humid weather. The guides and drivers were very helpful. Personally I wasn't that into the turtle sanctuary, preferring to see nature in the wild. And the most spectacular scenery was the waterfall at the end, I thought the route could have been more interesting in places. Enjoyable and exceedingly well prepared, but wouldn't put it down as a 'must do' in Phuket.

Very happy to hear you thought our tour was well organised, bikes were in good condition and guides and drivers provided good service.
I also agree with you that it is much nicer to see nature in the wild, however it is because of the declining numbers of Sea Turtles in the oceans that places such as the Sea Turtle conservation centre that we visit are essential. Without them the chances of seeing Sea Turtles in their natural enviroment will become less and less.
Hope to see you on of our other bike tours on your next visit.

“A great ride!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

A very well organized and fun tour by the Amazing Bike tours. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to our starting point and fitted with our bikes and were told to check out the bikes and became comfortable. The bikes were in good shape and drove well. Tour route was very well planned and everyone seemed to love what they were doing, making it a very pleasant trip. I loved the information about production of latex.

The ride was okay for the most part, there were a couple of hills though. They took great care in making sure we were comfortable and the ending point had a great view of the bay. Plenty to water is provided to you so remember to stay hydrated.
