We went on full day tour to the countryside of Bangkok. I think the tour was very nice, we saw all the rice plantations and you really get an idea of how people live outside the center of Bangkok. Our tour guide was very polite and willing to answer all of our funny questions. We tried new fruit and we had a very tasty meal in a local house in the area.
Don't worry about the required fitness for this tour, because the landscape is as flat as possible. It is very easy, relaxing and you really get a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
The unreliable timetable of the trains does make it difficult to make the most of your time, and you might feel that the tour is ending a bit too soon, but it's still worth it. Great bike-ride.

We went on the half day bike ride on a recent trip to Bangkok. It was a fantastic experience especially with a 10 and 7 year old. The bikes are well used but functional and there is a spanner on hand if needed along with constant smiles and local information. We all raved about our day to my husband who had been unable to join us! We would love to try the new cookery tour offered by this company as the food was delicious and the setting so refreshing after a few days in the city. Come rain or shine this is a day to remember - we managed to shelter from the rain with the guide and enjoy an undercover rest! This lingering meant we had to run to catch our scheduled train but it all added to the fun and adventure. Orn was brilliant and took great care of all of us.

Rice fields, visit of school and wooden house where we ate were great. Bikes were old, brakes did not work well and could not adjusted to my height (1,82 meters). Guide was not taking care of my 2 kids. We nearly got lost. Thai trains are unreliable making an ineficiente use of your time.

My wife and I were on our Honeymoon in Thailand for 2 weeks in July and came across this bicycle tour. A friend had recommended going on a bicycle tour while in Bangkok. We didn't realize at first that this tour was primarily outside of Bangkok... and what an amazing experience it was! We had a very nice, friendly, knowledgeable tour guide, Panida aka Orn. Orn took us on an adventure starting in a local farmers market in Bangkok in the morning. The market was quite an experience, very interesting (smells and sites!). Then we took a local train ride for about an hour to a village northeast of Bangkok airport. We then road bikes throughout the beautiful countryside and farmlands. Stopping frequently to hear about the fascinating things Orn had to say about the local people, vegetation, and culture. We stopped at a few different places for local snacks & to rest. We then had an excellent meal in a newly constructed house which sits over water. We then worked our way back to Bangkok to call it a day. What a great experience! To top it off, even thought it was the rainy season while we where there, we had sunshine all day!

Thank you so much for the amazing day in the Thailand countryside! Thank you again Orn (and by the way, the lottery ticket we bought on the Train going home didn't end up being a winner, shoot!)
