    Was just amazing, Tammy was a great guide, equipment provided was top quality, comfortable bikes and Tammy had our safety in mind. Those who have been on bike tours before may have felt their hands or bottom was sore afterwards, however these bikes have a very comfortable seat, very soft suspension, bikes were incredibly light hybrids and the handle bars had a soft grip; the perfect equipment for the duration we were riding. I really enjoyed the experience seeing the temples and the flower market and we got to try different street foods whilst on the trip provided by the tour guide. You get to experience the temples at night where there were literally no crowds and because it was at night the temperature was much more comfortable. Would highly recommend. The tight narrow streets and some areas required mounting up pavements and balancing around tight twisty corners, so would definitely recommend those with less riding experience to get some practice, overall worthwhile.

What people are saying about Wat Arun

The Guide was super kind, we were the only ones who booked this tour on that day so it was very private. At the end she took us up to a hidden roof top bar, which we‘d never have explored without her because it‘s so in between local hotspots. The rooftop was an absolutely secret tip with an amazing view and it was just perfect to fullfill our trip. We would highly recomend!

Very good Guide (Tammy): took very much time for us showing a lot of good things and very friendly and helpful :) highly recommended! Good tour, nice spots and very good staff!

Great experience. We have been to Bangkok couple of times, but we discovered a couple of new neighbourhoods during the tour. Can absolutely recommend it.

The itinerary was good and our guide was good. We enjoyed the lunch and then the long tail boat ride through some canals.

Was the best experience in Bangkok, the guides were friendly and funny! They give us great insiders!
