fantastic tour, the best we had in Bangkok. We saw the part of the city we would have never been able to discover by ourselves. roamed around in tiny lanes, crossed small canals and were able to look into the way of living of the locals. we had plenty of snacks and food to try too.
Steve ( our guide ) was fantastic.
Great tour, through alleys, to experience local/rural life. Also nice to see Bangkok from the river. Great, authentic and funny guide, very good English, accompanied by 2 other guides to keep the group together and, if needed, stop traffic for us, to cross the busy streets as a group...very well organized. I did this tour 7 years ago for the 1st time and enjoyed it as much the 2nd time. The route was different, different restaurant for lunch.
We visit Bangkok every year but decided to try something different this trip & went on this Bike tour led by Steve. It was an interesting tour. Snacks, fruits & drinks provided along the way which include homemade local lunch. Truly an experience that we have never had. Highly recommended for those whose keen to see the other side of Bangkok where the local people live & work. We rode past many narrow lanes, streets, canals to see the local dwellings of the Thai people... And schools too! It's fun to see the kids/students having their dance & singing activities in schools. A different sight of the more laid back, happy & vibrant part of Bangkok as compared to the touristy & commercial sides in the city. There were a few times we need to ride on main traffic roads to cross to the other side. A little apprehensive for someone like me who don't really cycle on main roads often... But all was good as Steve will lead us & make sure the roads are cleared for us to cross... The drivers do stop for us when they see a group of cyclists on bike tour... The visits to temple, floating market & barkery factory also some highlights of the trip. The locals are friendly & nice. We lost our direction when finding the meeting point & seeked help from a lady. She not only helped us made calls & even gave us a ride there knowing we might have problems finding the location!! So grateful to her! Steve, the tour guide is also very fun loving, cheerful, knowledgeable & caring which made the whole trip enjoyable. Could be due to time constraints, but would be great if we can slowed down a bit & have Steve to explain a bit more of the neighbourhood to us. Anyway, a great experience despite bodyache the next day. 😅
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! :)
We took this tour with Steve yesterday and it was honestly one of the best tours we’ve ever taken. This tour is very off the beaten path and you get to see a whole side of Bangkok that many tourists definitely don’t get to see. Steve was very accommodating—especially since we had such a large group size and some friends that occasionally fell behind.
He gave us a good amount of information on the religion, the culture, and the influences that make up Bangkok today. He kept at a steady pace and made sure everyone was safe. Just keep in mind, you ride through some pretty narrow canals and there are a few times you will need to carry your bike up bridges/steps so come with energy! They feed you very well throughout the activity so you can be energized, but he will help carry your bike over steps if you need it.
Overall, this is the best tour of Bangkok and I would recommend it to anyone that visits the city!
A wonderful experience! An easy riding session full of coyrmet and surprises! Steve the guide gave good briefing, warm hospitality and full description to all places we went and Food we tasted. A great way to experience the old town of Bangkok, highly recommended!
Just be aware this only suits those who is comfortable to ride the bike on busy road and little tiny alley.
