What people are saying about Sukhothai

Cannot recommend this tour enough! Not only was this tour a beautiful experience of the rural areas of Sukhothai which gave us an insight to how the villages live and their struggles during COVID, our tour guide made this experience everything and more ‘Chip’ was friendly, kind, comforting and engaging. He not only reassured us we could stop anytime to ask questions or take a break he also made us both feel comfortable with the speed of the tour. We do not cycle a lot and did not feel any pressure to go at a certain pace. Chip ensured this experience was at our own pace He made this tour amazing with interesting real life stories and by taking us to numerous places of the villagers work such as the bamboo workshop and a wood factory As we rode round the areas the villagers were very friendly and happy to see tourists! Not only was the sunset incredibly special and memorable the little things such as cookies from his local village made the tour that extra bit special Thank you
