This was such a fun and unique way to see Bangkok! The scooters were a lot of fun and we were able to see so many different parts of the city as well as try a few different yummy street foods! The groups are small and intimate (8 ppl max) and the tour guides were awesome - very knowledgeable and very helpful. They took pictures throughout the tour and emailed them to us right after. 10/10 would definitely do this again.

The respon of the Local Partner was very slow. It is hard for me to contact them regarding my booking as they missed the date. However, the Tour Guide, Pete, is awesome. He is very friendly, warm, caring and professional doing his duty as our Tour Guide. Pete definitely recommended to be the Tour Guide and My Family would love to use him again as our Tour Guide sometime in the future. GOD bless
