    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!

    Meet your guide at the meeting point for a short introduction to the canals of Thonburi. You will then board a traditional wooden longtail boat that will take you on the canals. See the interesting sights along the canals. Your guide will help explain the history of Bangkok and Thailand, as well as dive into the customs of Thai people. In the old days, Bangkok was comprised of hundreds of small canals or “khlong” in Thai and local people mainly traveled by water. They relied heavily on the waterways as this mode of transportation was faster and more convenient than the land route. Today, most canals in Bangkok have been filled in and converted into streets.

Better than any bus tour. We saw interesting places that you would not normally see and Guide Seen told us a lot of interesting things about Bangkok and Thai culture. I can't understand that we were only two, but made the tour even more personal. Can only be recommended!
