This was a fun tour. Not the kind of biking I'm used to (due to infrastructure and traffic conditions in the city) but our guides kept us safe and well informed. The main guide TK showed us the unique Silver Temple and other attractions, and was very open and willing to share personal insights into Thai culture and life in Chiang Mai, while the sweeper guide was always watching out for us from behind and took pictures of us and for us. The entire staff was super friendly and accommodating, before, during and after the tour. Water, snacks and lunch were provided.

A MUST DO while in Chiang Mai. It was a perfect day outside of the city. Definitely got the blood pumping and sweat going. The trail was so beautiful, and we learned a lot. The place we had lunch was fantastic. Our guide was so fun and knowledgeable.

What an amazing tour with TK! She had such a fun and enthusiastic personality - super knowledgeable about the city and was able to answer any questions we had. We loved seeing the hidden gems of Chiang Mai :) highly recommend this tour!

Loved it ! Thank you. It was challenging though - as it was my 1st time mountain biking. Our guides were very helpful and we had a great small group. Reasonable fitness level is required.

Highly recommend. Spent four hours cycling mostly the country side. Bikes in great condition.
