I have been to Bangkok a few times so I signed up for an afternoon bike trip to see a new part of Bangkok. I went to the office for an afternoon tour and met the guide Aon and got a drink and access to the wifi while waiting for the rest of the participants. We were just a group of 4 and we tried the bikes briefly before we headed out into traffic. Biking in the traffic of Bangkok went surprisingly smooth - there was not that much to see to start with but we soon came into areas where people were living in more modest accommodation. We saw a pretty big monitor lizard coming out of one of the canals in the middle of the city which is fascinating. on every stop our guide Aon would talk non stop about Bangkok life, people, food etc :-) We were talking right through neighborhoods and at times it felt like we were intruding into people's personal space. In the end we reached the river and a boat transported us and the bikes over to the other side. Here we were all of a sudden in the "jungle" which seems quite absurd as it only takes 5 minutes to cross the river. Here we biked on elevated walkways and it was very different from biking around the streets of Bangkok. The elevated walkways are not that wide so it does help to have some experience with biking and keeping balance. All in all this was a great tour and most people will get to see a part of Bangkok that you normally don't get to see. My bike was not the best as the gear shift was giving me trouble but apart from that it was a fun, educational and exciting. Compliments to Aon for being an endless source of information :-)

Hi and thanks for your nice review. Good to read that you enjoyed our tour and hopefully you will come and join us again. Everyday is a different day and thus a different tour. Ms. Aon is indeed a very nice and talkative tour guide and knows the ins and outs of Bangkok very well. It is always a pleasure for her to share all the experiences she has with our customers.
See you next time,
Ms. Oranuch Saraburi

We went on the tour as a couple and there was only us plus lovely lady called Hazzel who was new to the job, which made the tour more intimate and interesting. We cycled round parts of Bangkok which we would have never seen had we ventured out solo. The tour was average pace and predominantly flat ground, easy for everyone! We also crossed the Chayo Phraya river and journied put towards the more rural area of Bangkok with a lot more greenery. Although this part was narrow to cycle on with water eitherside of you Michael was very helpful in guiding us through. Although cycling through the streets of Bangkok may seem scary what with all the traffic, it was surprisingly thrilling and Michael (our tour guide) was very calm and a great guide. Hazzel was also lovely, talked to us throughout and easy to get along with, I'm glad she's got the Job! Lastly we were offered water throughout the tour and stopped when necessary. Would definitely recommend!

Great cycling tour through Bangkok's hidden gems, including the "green lung", with a group of 11 friends. Unique experience to see Bangkok from a different angle and cycle through all the backroads, little markets, cycling lanes of Bangkok's quieter green area. Michiel was a nice and friendly host and guide, who taught us all about the environment, Thai history and culture. 5 out of 5 stars and very much recommend if you are hitting Bangkok for a few days.

Normally one would see Bangkok only from the window of a taxi or tuktuk, going much too fast, or by seeing one of the temples. If you want to get a feel for the rest of the city, biking is a really great way. And don't worry, the itinerary is such that you'll mostly be biking in very quiet streets, or on the sidewalk of busier streets. Every once in a while a bigger street needs to be crossed, but the guides take their time until it is safe. The second part of the tour is on the other side of the river (you take a long-boat to the other side) and runs mostly on concrete paths (on short poles) through a plantation/jungle, which is really very nice. The bikes are very good quality. Our guide was very clear (spoke English very well!), helpful and fun. They take care of photographs, drinks, and some explanation. You can leave valuables at their office, nothing is needed during the tour. For larger groups, a private tour is arranged, individuals and smaller groups can join any of the daily tours. If there is anything that could be improved, I would have liked even a bit more explanation on the different neighbourhoods, buildings, etc. (even though there was room for questions)
