Brilliant way to visit Chiang Mai historic centre!Really brilliant tour with Ai today. Bike is such a great way to visit the town and Ai was amazing. She taught us a lot about Chiang Mai tradition & culture, and some laughs too! Highly recommended.
Super professional and friendly company. We did a 1/2 day biking tour of historic Chiang Mai with the cooking class add on. The biking tour was the perfect way to start our visit to Chiang Mai. It helped us get oriented to the city while also knocking out a lot of the touristy "must-dos." We saw so many things so efficiently it freed up a lot of time for exploring the city later.Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable. All in all, a great company to book with!
We enjoyed a morning cycling tour of the Old City in Chiang Mai, and had a lovely, friendly and knowledgeable guide (Aimy). Easy ride and many beautiful sights to be seen. We loved cycling through the side streets and getting a bit of history along the way. This is our third tour with the Grasshopper Adventures company and have had such an amazing experience with all of them.
Yes, it is a really fun and safe way to explore the old city. The tour rides the back streets and alley of the old city where there is little traffic.
