Then, take the ferry back to Bangkok city center. Ride through the vast public square of Sanam Luang, and see the Grand Palace.

    The Guide (Ahm?!, sorry) was in time, the bikes wehre in good condition and fitted to our body size! Very importang if you go for a 5h ride! We definitely saw Bangkok from a total different perspective and it was also a little thrilling, We never thought to use a bike in Bangkok before. Anyhow thanks to the caretaking and responsible acting of the guide we have had always the feeling of bering save! Further more you get to see all the nice places without so many tourists (although you might not enter all temples as the close esrlyer). The streetfood was great and authentic. If you don‘t like this kind of food, tell the guide!

    Places you see that you would never see on your own

    This was a great experience. The guide was good. We went all around the little back streets of Bangkok, across the river, dodged traffic (all in the light rain) and it was fun. See the city at night like this was an experience. It is certainly not for the faint hearted (dodging the traffic) and you need to be confident on a bicycle, because there is no waiting around for anyone - or maybe the guide knew we were all capable riders. Dinner was also great. The only downside is, if you are staying in city it is a little out of the way to get to, but if you are staying on the river it would be a lot easier. You must meet them at the Sheraton on the River, they don't come and collect you from your hotel (or the MRT/BTS).

    Great insights into Bangkok's life

    Nicr and easy cycling tour with a good english speaking guide (Ben). It great to visit the temples in the evening far away from the tourists. Just a handful people at the spot and enough time to enjoy the place without hustle and bustle! We liked it very much and it's the money worth it.
