San was great and ver knowledgeable about Thailand’s history and Buddhism at large. I was worried that biking on a hot day would be difficult, but the breeze actually made it feel cooler! Sam’s route was great, showing us many thing we wouldn’t have seen and the context we never would have learned. Thanks for a great tour!

SAN was a phenomenal guide. Since I was the only client, he was able to customize the route to my interests. He added a few stops that he thought would be interesting for me based on our conversation. He has a vast knowledge of Thai history and explains it very well in English. I highly recommend this tour! Thank you SAN for a great experience.

The tour is AMAZING! Do it!!! You get to catch a lot of different sides of the city, because you are way faster by bike. And honeslty: I didn’t expect it to be this safe and easy to cycle in Chiang Mai’s traffic. San is a great guide. He really overdelivers. His English is very good and his knowledge is incredible. Don’t hesitate and get in the bike! ;-) Few things to keep in mind: better come well fed and stay hydrated. Women may also want to bring clothes to cover up for entering the temples.
