Begin your full-day tour at a bike shop in Siem Reap, where you’ll meet your small group and get fitted with your quality mountain bike and helmet. Then, follow your experienced guide on a small road alongside the river until you reach Angkor Archaeological Park. At the gate, you can purchase an Angkor Pass for admission to the UNESCO World Heritage site.

Your first stop is the amazing Angkor Wat, a monumental temple among myriad ruins built by the former Khmer Empire during the 9th to the 15th centuries. Admire the reflection pools and galleries showcasing elements of the Hindu epic, the Ramayana.

After stopping for refreshments, cycle the main circuit road to Angkor Thom, riding past 54 sculptured gods and demons, and then spend the rest of the day on charming, quiet trails around more majestic structures in the ancient walled city. Take time to visit Bayon Temple, famous for its 200 or so stone faces, and explore the Terrace of the Elephants while lunch is prepared.

After you devour tasty Khmer dishes, ride with your guide to Ta Prohm, commonly known as the jungle temple, with tree roots attempting to reclaim the ruins. Stand in awe of the otherworldly atmosphere as you take advantage of numerous photo ops.

Departing the Angkor complex, hop back on your bike to follow a red dirt road and several small paths back to Siem Reap, pedaling through local villages in the countryside until you arrive at your starting point by late afternoon.

Please note: This bike tour covers a distance of approximately 15–18 miles (25–30 km). The ride is mostly on flat paths and small roads without hills, with some small dirt trails unsuitable for beginning riders.

We are so happy we took this tour! Biking turned out to be a phenomenal way to see the temples because we saw the countryside all around them, more than if we had taken a bus. Biking through the very large, impressive gates on either side of the temple complex was an experience I won’t forget! And the exercise was also nice! Our tour guide was very informative and happily answered our many, many questions (we’re history buffs). I would do this tour again tomorrow if I could!

Excellent way to get an introduction to Angkor. Our guide was called Wich and he was knowledgeable and very helpful. Very warm day so hard work by the end but would definitely recommend this. FYI we are in our 50s.

Easy cycling but a lot more fun to go on some back roads to the temples at Angkor than by motor transportation. The tour leaders and guides were friendly and made sure everyone was safe while cycling. It was a great way to spend a day in Angkor Wat.

It was fun and I enjoyed it immensely - my favorite of my Siem Reap experience. I loved the trails we went through and the pacing was okay. Just make sure your body's up to the biking : I highly recommend it to the adventurous. Cheers!

This tour was great for us, a family of four with two boys 11 and 13. Pretty hot but enjoyable and such a great way to see the area around Angkor Wat. We rode through peoples’ farm yards and saw areas that we would not have seen without the bicycles. Thank you to our guide ”We” for taking care of us

EXCELLENT TRIP! Highly recommended. From the time we reached the office, the entire process was very well managed we got water, the bikes were labelled with our names and set to our height. We then rode to get our tickets, which was a smooth 1min process at the counter. From then the ride actually started. The initial section was a regular tar road, but then we moved in to the forested area. So be aware that you will be biking through sand/bumpy roads too. There was a guide at the front and back, both VERY VERY helpful and appreciate all that they did for us on the trip. Wonderful way to be up and close to nature and see the temples. We had ample time to see them too with inputs on history from our guide it was not rushed. Lunch was AMAZING! Even when the tour ended back at the office, we were given coconut water, which was a total surprise and a wonderful treat. Amazing hospitality. Just a note on the weather and road: It will be hot so do come prepared with proper cycling attire hat, sunscreen, and proper shoes. You MAY be tired/knees may hurt due to the sand/bumpy ride in between. But it should be all ok after rest. No worries. Good luck to Grasshopper tours on the amazing work they are doing!

Increíble experiencia. La mejor forma de conocer los templos de Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom y Ta Prohm: la bicicleta. 35 km en total que incluyó adentrarse en la jungla para cortar camino, ingresar a Angkor Thom pedaleando sobre la muralla que rodea al templo y atravesar zonas donde se palpita la vida rural de este pueblo maravilloso donde a nuestro paso nos saludaban con un amistoso Hello!, no tiene precio. Nuestro guía, Vic, siempre respondió todas nuestras consultas y nos informo la historias de los maravillosos templos

Great tour. A very nice and full day program to see a number of the greatest temples. Lunch and fruit stops are includes and the food and fruit are absolutely fabulous. The guide was great and had heaps of knowledge. The second guide was always around to keep people safe. This is a very professional and well thought out and very well executed tour. These company and these people deserve some serious stars for what they offer. Absolute firm recommendation.

This tour allows you to see part of Siem Reap you won't see by car. Cycling off road through wooded areas and finding temples along the way. The views are break taking and the temples u see are amazing. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Stopped for lunch midday and was given water.

This tour was according to what was on the description plus during the time of our bike on to the road area, I felt safe with our tour guide, his pace was similar to the local bike riders which was good when you are biking in public. The route was excellent, it was on the country side most often and I feel that we got to see the Angkor Wat more than as a tourist. The bikes were fully maintained, I felt that the mountain bikes shocks are according to the road's condition. If it was compared to the bike tour in U.S.A. it was safe and he used the correct hand signals and oriented us with the hand signals and pace was for safety and not for speed of pure leisure. We had fruit snack right on time just before I felt I was bonking Lunch was very tasty Water cold was provided through out our ride Temple Tour inside met the expectation A refreshing cold fresh coconut drink and cold towel was provided when we got back at the office. All else, this tour provided more fun to me and felt safe.

I went on this tour with three friends and we all loved it. It was extremely well organized. Definitely not for someone who is not in moderately good physical fitness because we biked 20km to the three sites. Lunch was enjoyable with plenty of options to buy souvenirs along the route. Tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable. I not only got to enjoy the temples, but get there quickly and efficiently with nuggets of wisdom from a local. I would definitely recommend doing a tour of the temples this way! Make sure to wear something practical because you will be biking through trails in the woods and pants I bought in country ripped! Other than that, we had a great time.

This was an excellent tour from start to finish. Well maintained bikes, knowledgeable guide, good route that minimized road travel as much as possible and provided for some great jungle riding / trail riding. The morning flew by and after a generous and delicious lunch we saw another temple. The only thing I could think of to improve this tour would be to do Angkor Wat last so it ends of a truly wonderful highlight. The last little touch of getting to keep the water bottle was a really nice gesture and great memento of a great trip!

Our cycle trip to the Anghor archaeological area was very well organised and executed. Our guide Chen and his assistant and mechanicwere punctual, competent , kind and patient. The tour itself was well paced and gave us the opportunity to cycle through villages and green areas on the way to the temples. It was a full day but with time to walk around, take photos and ask questions and to Enjoy good local food for lunch. Definitely to be recommended.

This was a fabulous trip. It was very well organised from start to finish. We were cycling on a day when the temperatures reached 35 degrees but we were supplied with regular fresh water and an excellent stop for a very generous lunch. The guide was very informative. At the end of the trip we were greeted with a very refreshing coconut to drink from. I was travelling alone so I welcomed the company of some excellent people on this trip.

We had an amazing guide - there were only two of us my wife and I on the tour, and he gave us a great overview of the different temples. Definitely recommend the experience.

Six of us, plus our guide,Chen, set off on this tour of three temples.We started with the iconic Ankor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world. Chen was incredibly informative with regard to the history of not only the temples, but the country as a whole. This gave real depth to the tour experience as opposed to just wandering about solo and taking a few photos. There were plenty of stops, including a delicious lunch where we were invited to order anything from the menu, plus grab a beer if we wanted. It was amazing to cycle off road through a forested area to emerge at the last temple ruin where huge trees had overgrown the structures. The cycle ride was not too arduous even though it was an all day tour. Was the highlight of an all too brief Siem Reap visit.

We really enjoyed this tour, the tour guide Sam was very good and knowledgable. Program was very well set up, riding through the jungle, villages and rice fields was the highlight with quite a few stops along the way. Lunch was great with the locals. Fantastic inside view of the temples. An experience that we will never forget and would highly recommend it.
• Submitted 03 Aug 2017
All round great tour! Our guide Sami was very professional and led us safely through relatively calm backroads to the temple complex. The mountain bikes provided dealt well with the sandy trails. Lunch was great and we were given lots of refreshments. You don't have to be a super athlete for this.

Wonderful biking tour lead by a very knowledgeable guide whom took us on the adventure through the jungle bike ride to reach the templates build by the Angkor kingdom! Highly encouraged to see the temples through this tour.

An awesome way to see the temples, our guide Sambo was great, so informative and always with a smile. The ride was an easy pace with many tracks away from the main tourist areas. The area is mainly flat so the ride is not to difficult, with plenty of stops for snacks, lunch and drinks. It truly is a majestic site, the temples are so amazing and their size and scale is hard to comprehend. The tour was good value for money, and I would highly recommend the ride tour, anyone of average fitness would cope with this tour.

the tour was amazing and i loved doing it by bike, definitely more fun! Our tour guide spoke perfect english and was very knowledgable, so it was a great day and I highly recommend to everyone! Do note that the biking is a lot, not only is it 30 km, there is a significant amount of riding in an off-road setting, which can be challenging if you're like me and haven't ridden a bike in years let alone ever mountain biked.
