    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.

    It was a nice experience except for the Airplane Graveyard which is I think not safe for tourist plus the area seems not accomodating that's why we need to leave the place as soon as we got there. Other than that, it was a wonderful day for us in spite of the rain. The tour guides were very friendly and they brought us to a nice Thai Restaurant for us to try their food.

We took a tour on the 9th of February and Nancy was our guide. She showed involvement and passion for what she does. She was very nice, funny, always paying attention to our needs and interests. She knows very well the town and the Buddhist culture. Nancy answered all our questions and shared with us facts about Bangkok, Thailand and Buddhist temples/ culture. She took us lots of photos and made the tour a lot interesting. I want to congratulate Nancy for her work and dedication!
