I learned more on this tour than on all the other tours I’ve done in Thailand so far. Miauw is a lot of fun, relaxed and very knowledgeable. She has been a guide even in chiang Mai for a long time and that is noticeable especially also in her English skills. We learned about history, the local life, the royal family, religions especially Buddhism and more. The girl who did the girl with me had been to Ayatuyia beforehand and said Sukothai is more impressive (and older obviously) and that this cycling tour was the best she has done so far here. So yeah, just book it if you’re in town! You won’t regret it.

Simply amazing activity! The host is a very warm and really interesting person. The course off the beaten track will allow you to discover the life of the locals as well as to interact and exchange with them. The explanations of our host throughout the day allowed us to understand and learn a good part of the history of this region and this country, information that was very useful to us for the rest of our trip! Don't hesitate for a second and book this activity!

I totally recommend this bike tour! My guide was Miau and she took care of me the whole trip. We visited the different villages of Sukhothai and it was great to get to see a bit of their daily lives on the rice fields. Miau also explained me a lot of history when visiting the temples. It’s a much better experience going with a local like her. Everything is as detailed in the tour description. Don’t miss it! Thanks to Miau for this unforgettable experience.

Fantastic ! Everything: our guide, Miow, who loves her city and shares her knowledge with passion and a great sense of humor; the program, mix of villages visits to understand the ways of living of locals, of biking the rice paddies and -of course- visiting the historical site; and the biking experience. The best activity we had so far.

We had a great time with Miau and the rest of the group doing the cycling tour around Sukhotai. We got to see the new town and the old one. Miau explained plenty of things related to Thai culture and also information about the old city and its beautiful ruins. One of the best tours we do so far!
