What people are saying about Tradition & Culture in Bangkok
the meeting point is at the tourist information booth outside the mall. the guide and driver are very nice & helpful. the train market is enjoyable but it was too warm. have a walk outside on the street, not only the track. it was also nice. the floating market & firefly was a really nice experience. out of all the activities we booked in Bangkok we thought we should've just done this package and chill for the rest of the days. i would really recommend this.
I’ve been to Bangkok a few times and this was my favorite activity among everything. If you’re the kind of traveler that wants to explore off-the-beaten-paths and see the locals, this is your best bet. Our guide Chin was a nice and funny guy. He checked everyone at all times and made sure everyone’s safe. He shared interesting facts and took us to sois only locals go to. Thais living on these sois are friendly enough to say hello while we’re passing by their homes. We also passed by an elementary school and the kids enjoyed waving to the group. Went across the bridge to Old Bangkok and fed the turtles while we rest. Also dropped by at Lhong 1919 for a short break then we rode the ferry (with the bike) back to the other side. It was a beautiful memory to me of Bangkok and would love to do it again on a different trail when I get back. Just make sure that you are fit for this activity if you decide to join. Wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to bike along the sidewalks (with people walking) and narrow alleys as well as uphill. By the way, water is provided! :)
Join two hour tour with my wife today, our tourguid is Chin, he is a super nicely and passion guy!
I have to say if you come to Bangkok you should reserved your time for the bike tour, it'll let you see the daily life of Bangkok people, riding bike in the lane to see the real Bangkok instead of going to the shopping mall!
If I came back to Bangkok again I'll like to have another tour from them!!
Train was interesting. Public toilet not many. 5baht. Temple in tree and thai fighting school was okay. Free toilet. Floating market very claustrophobic with small aisles and too many people. Depart from market for butterfly boat ride. Free toilet stop after boat ride before 2-3 hours bus ride back to Bangkok.
Had the unfortunate luck of having a heavy downpour in the middle of our tour. but our tour guide OFF was very patient and we waited it out. we pushed through and finished late. even though the tour was not complete because of the weather, it was a good and memorable experience and i would highly recommend it to adventurous tourists in Bangkok.
Amazing amazing amazing!! We only had a short time in Bangkok, and I wanted to see as MUCH as I could in the hours we had. The go Bangkok bike tour was the best thing we could have done. We saw a local, behind the scenes view of life in Bangkok. Our tour guide, Chin, catered the tour to what we were interested in (building restoration, bangkok history and architectural history), and kept things interesting and fun by singing the Indiana Jones tomb raider theme song to make people aware of our bikes passing as we whizzed through alleyways, across bridges and onto ferries. At first I thought the price for the cultural tour ($30 per person) was a little pricey, but it was absolutely worth every penny.
We loved our tour and we loved our tour guide. Would absolutely recommend to anybody visiting Bangkok.
