Nice bike ride through rice fields and villages to explore the area and taste what the Thai nature has to offer. The guide knows a lot and clearly enjoys it. Were served a lovely lunch afterwards in the garden of a beautifully situated 'resort'. Afterwards we also visited the sticky waterfall.

Active Thailand were excellent at tailoring our cycling day to our abilities and wishes. We had a great time with Khun Tri who took us out on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year (late April). I could say "no sweat" but that's not remotely true! They also laid on a first class Thai lunch together with green coconuts, amazing papaya in their immaculately organised garden. A very efficiently run organisation. Highly recommended!

A great day out in beautiful countryside

A very enjoyable, active trip. Friendly guides and very well organised. Guides share lots of local knowledge which makes the tour culturally interesting too. On time for pick ups and drop offs. All equipment was in excellent condition. Everyone on our tour had a great time despite there being a range of fitness levels. Highly recommend this tour.
