This tour was very cool. One thing I was worried about when taking a 12 mile bike ride was sitting on a bike for so long. I did not have any issues with this because the bikes and helmets they provide are very high quality. They also gave us some drinking water to bring along. However, it is still a 12 mile bike ride, so prepared for the exercise that entails. Our guide, Palm, was very nice and taught us a lot about the temples and areas we visited. The biking provided a great way to see the temples and city. The temples do have a dress code they enforce. Women need pants that cover the knees and shirts that cover the shoulders and back. Men can wear shorts that cover the knees and t shirts, but no hats. My wife did bring some pants to take on and off over shorts at the temples, because it would be very hot riding bikes around Thailand in pants. Only thing you really need to bring is some drinking water you may want and clothes to follow the dress code.

Greeted by my host/ guide Mr Palm on a extremely early but sunny Sunday morning I was immediately informed that I was the only rider! After adjusting bike seat and fitting helmet we were off. Palm took time to explain each monument and place with dates littered with personal experiences. The pace was quite smooth with regular stops in the market and along the road with some local sweets and fruits thrown in. The 5 hour tour pas from the city centre to the suburbs.

This was a really good tour. The guide was lovely and did not short cut, as I was the only person on the tour. Win went over and beyond to please and he did. The bike was safe and in good condition a helmet provided as promised. Overall very happy. Big thank you to you Win and I hope you see this review and you are given some appreciation.

Good value, great fun with an enthusiastic and knowledgabel guide Ton. Bikes were in good order and the pace was good but suitable for everyone. Also felt very safe in the busy Chiang Mai traffic. It was also nice to get out of the city to see some interesting cultural sites. No hesitation in recommending this bike tour.

I really enjoyed my ride with Ji. We saw several temples and historical sites in Chiang Mai. Ji spoke perfect English, and she educated me about Northern Thai history and culture, and answered all my questions about Thailand and Chiang Mai. I learned a lot. Loved our snack stops! Definitely recommend this tour to see all the highlights in Chiang Mai. Thanks, Ji!
