We were with only the two of us. We had a great guide and driver. We were picked up from the hotel and drove north. After more than a hour in the car, we started the bike tour. This was great. You pass wonderful nature, rice fields, small villages and more. The guide explained a lot about the things we encountered. We tasted some local specialties. After 27 km by bike we reached the first temple of Ayutthaya. This was great and beautiful and much better because we had to work hard to reach it (38 degrees and on the bike). We visited more temples and had lunch. The day was a great experience and I think so much nicer than driving everywhere by car. You really experience the scenery by bike. Highly recommend!!
We had great history lessons throughout the day, and Kan also provided insightful perspectives on Thailand history, culture, and on life. What a wonderful day! We would highly recommend this tour
We've done 40 km Ayutthaya tour and all was awesome to see every corner of their life. Thanks to our tour guide and the support man Edi. They backed us up with full of water and fruits & food when we needed. Can’t tell riding bike around the traffic did not scare us a little but we survived ;)
