Aimy, our guide, was fun and full of useful information. We had a blast. It was also interesting to see some temples at night, which makes the experience a little different than normal temple visits. The Old City has plenty to offer and you get to see more on a bicycle. Thanks again, Aimy and the Grasshopper team.
Nice simple bicycle tour of some highlights of Chiang Mai. Got to try some street food at the end (which was included in the price). Nice to see temples with the night lights in the evening with no crowds and much cooler weather. Although you cannot enter at night, we got pretty good pictures of the outside. Aimy, our guide, explained the history well and taught us quite a lot about each site we visited. Pace of bike ride was comfortable, especially for beginners. Safety was great as there was another guide behind to make sure we were all safe. Not sure how a big group would be like as we were in a small group of 4 in total. Highly recommend though!
This is a great way to see the city and time to go as its a bit cooler. I ended up being the only person for the tour that night and had a wonderful guide(forgot his name)Dinner was also included and after the tour we walked to food night market by their office and had street food, which you could choose want you wanted and I choose Pad Thai which was very good. I would highly recommend Grasshopper Adventures.
