    I wish I would have written down the name of our guide. She was excellent. She was early to meet us at our hotel. We went to the two temples first and then on to the Royal Palace. This is an excellent tour. The temples and palace are absolutely gorgeous. These are must see sites to see when you are in Bangkok. We started right at 8:30AM so not too early and were done by early afternoon. We opted to stay in the old town area and grab some lunch before trying unsuccessfully to find some tourist t-shirts. The guide suggested a really cool restaurant near the palace for lunch and even walked us over there and got us situated before leaving. The lunch was probably the best food we had in Bangkok.

    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.
