        Highlight
        This is probably going to stand out as a highlight of my trip although I’m still in Thailand! Our guide was so knowledgeable and throughout the whole experience which begins with the cave (which is also a temple so ladies bring something suitable to wear, I didn’t but they give you something to cover up with thankfully) he pointed out different creatures living in the cave and all about the rock formations and the history, the fish there. Really really good! Lunch. Kayaking next which you get a really good tutorial in before you go sailing off and I’d never kayaked before and I managed it no problem so you’re definitely in good hands. 100% recommend this!

        Take the Adventure Route!
        My daughters & I had an awesome day with our guide A! It was only the 3 of us, so we were lucky to have him all to ourselves! Unfortunately the hike to the highest summit is closed right now, but we still hiked 2.5 miles and A said the elevation gain is about 800 meters. Very steep in sections! We brought along temple appropriate clothing (covered legs & shoulders) and put those on over hiking clothes along the way so we could visit the 2 temples. (And put them right back in our backpacks after!) A also took us to a village where we enjoyed local coffee and guided us on another hiking trail to a waterfall. Highly recommend!

        Absolutely amazing!!!
        After booking I was immediately informed by the owner (Adon) that there will be a slight change to the route which was accepted. I was picked from my hotel by A (tour guide)and Rin (driver)really cool and welcoming guys. Cycling with A was amazing, it was cycling with a mate, we had so much fun and laughter that it didn’t seem like a tour. A’s friendly demeanour,character and knowledge are simply priceless. Overall, I’m glad I booked Chiang mai mountain biking and kayaking. Highly recommended!

        Fun day out
        Great opportunity to try proper downhill MTB. Definitely not for the faint of heart as its a steep and bumpy ride. Fun day out all round. Would be better if there were larger option bikes available; they all seemed to be M size so it was difficult to pedal uphill on the few occasions that was needed.

        Recommended Operator and Tour
        I highly rate this adventure tour operator and this tour. Starting with a well prepared orientation for the day at their office we had a 90 minute drive north. As we are older participants they were attentive to our needs and let us ride in the pickup truck cab. The cave visit was memorable. Cave ecology and the caves history as a Burmese monastery were explained. bats, snakes and spiders pointed out (no danger to us). It is a long walk with some narrow or low or slippery passages. Lunch was very plain. I wish we had been told there is a selection at the restaurant besides Pad Thai. The kayaking portion was also memorable. Good orientation. River never too swift but we still managed to capsize once. Khun Jojo was right there to help, but still I got my phone wet (you are warned). On the way back Khun Jojo kindly took us to a phone repair shop where the phone surgeon declared my phone DOA.

        Great fun for all the family
        This was our second guided tour during our time in Chiang Mai and another cracker. We were collected by Jen (our very friendly guide) from our hotel in the Old Town and after a good briefing of how to control a single person kayak plus being fitted for our buoyancy jackets we were on our way. The minivan was comfortable with air conditioning and our first stop was the caving at Chiang Dao. We saw loads of bats inside the caves, huntsman spiders and crickets together with some spectacular stalagmites and stalactites. There were some narrow passages to fit through (nothing too claustrophobic) which was part of the fun and Jen provided us with some historical facts on our way. After the caving we were treated to a nice Pad Thai lunch then on to kayaking. This was great fun and well supervised. It was very much at an easy pace and no sign of white water which made the whole experience very relaxed. We kayaked through some beautiful areas, stopped halfway on a sandbank for a cooling swim and break and completed the river section in just over 2 hours. Overall a great tour - big thanks to Jen and his fellow guide for a fun and friendly time 🙏

        A bit boring
        Pick up was as planned. The kayak trip itself is fairly boring, very little to see along the way. For an inexperienced kayaker this would be quite hard, it is over 1 hour long.

        Great tour of DOI Mountain temples with a fantastic mountain bike descent on the road from the top… at least 20 minutes (15 km). Lunch of Pad Thai was good, too!

        Excellent tour worth every penny
        Jo-Jo our guide was exceptional - he was fun informative and engaging, in the caves he showed us the different forms of geological formations and made it really interesting. He also held a very large spider and by being so calm allowed us to hold it too which seemed incredible. To me a complete arachnophobe. The kayaking was just right and our guides were bery helpful and involved, I guess some of the comments directed about the young woman on the trip seemed a bit “off” but I genuinely think It was an attempt to be funny not meaning to be offensive. And certainly not something that would lose a star. One point the whole day is quite tiring so note that it says a reasonable level of fitness is required - I went with the England over 50’s international football team. And they snoozed all the way home!😯

        Beautiful Scenery full of Surprises
        This super exceeded our expectations. The wait in the morning for the kayaking lesson had to have been the only negative but is required. It's over an hour's drive to The Caves. It's beautiful, it is a temple, so ladies do have to cover up. There were a lot of self-exploration opportunities and it's a pretty slippery and dark space with some crawl spaces and neat temple items. Lunch is served after the cave - Pad Thai a short walk outside of the caves. The kayaking launch was only 15 or mins from the lunch spot. The guides did an awesome job with this! We loved the scenery and this was a highlight from our entire trip to Thailand.

        Great ride in Chiang Mai.
        I had a fantastic day of riding with Bas-definitely was a challenge, but Bas was a capable and knowledgeable guide, and we had a blast! Although you are descending from a mountaintop, there are certainly some tough climbs as well. We had several short stops to admire the scenery and look at the foliage, but there was several hours of riding. We enjoyed a lakeside lunch, and then rode the 15kms into town and back to the shop.

        Great tour! Nice to get out of the city. Fun kayak ride. :)
        The caves were much bigger than expected! Very interesting. The 2 hour kayak ride was very enjoyable. Bring sunscreen! The trip out and back in the van was very comfortable (about 90 mins each way). Great time getting out of the city.

        Downhill adventure
        This was a fun day if you can ride a mountain bike on gravel trails. It's mostly downhill except for one 400m significant uphill. Bike is good and safety gear was adequate. Lunch good, bring your own electrolyte drink and snacks for energy.

      Would recommend this trip as you see a bit of everything and isn’t too difficult so don’t worry if you’re not overly fit.
      They stop at a big temple which is nice as not in a tourist area so much quieter (if you don’t have appropriate clothing they have some you can wear). You get about 40 minutes to look around whilst they unload the bikes, then head off cycling through the rice and tobacco fields (it’s flat so not difficult). They stop regularly and give out water which is much needed as it’s hot. We stopped in a small village and they gave us bananas to refuel then not far from the river we stopped at a small shop on the side of the road where we tried different local fruits and had more water (also a toilet stop).
      You can choose a single man kayak or a double, don’t be put off the single man one as it’s not difficult. The current takes you down the river all you have to do is steer every now & again, it’s not fast but enough to keep you moving downstream.
      We stopped half way for a swim and they allow you to float down stream if you want (you need to wear a life jacket though).
      The kayaking is about 1.5 - 2 hours so you definitely get your money’s worth & it’s beautiful.
      You finish up at a local restaurant for lunch but it’s more like early dinner as it was 4/4:30 by the time we got there. The food is great & you can buy beers which aren’t anymore expensive than anywhere else which is nice to see, they could easily charge more but they don’t (110bt for a large Chang).
      All the staff/guides are friendly & the owner Art (sorry if spelt wrong - likely!) is very funny and really makes it a great day, he tells you stories and gives you information about the surroundings.

      Highly recommend this day trip of biking and then kayaking. The guide was awesome, he provided local information as well as made the day really enjoyable. The meal provided was one of the best I’ve ever had on a day excursion. On the way the stop at the Temple was incredible, very cool. Thanks to the guide for a fantastic day!

      We did the half day cycling/half day kayaking and found it really enjoyable.

      While we wouldn’t be regular cyclists by any means, and had only ever been in a kayak once before, we didn’t find this too strenuous and I’d say this is suitable for almost everyone.

      Somewhat surprisingly, the cycling part was actually the highlight. But that’s not to take anything away from the kayaking either.

      We really enjoyed our day out with our guide Art and his team. We sat through a short information session in the morning. Honestly it was hard to retain all the information on kayaking techniques - but it was a good sign that they cared about safety! We then stopped at a temple for 45mins and then started to ride out into the fields which was absolutely stunning.

      I found the bike ride pretty challenging because it was so hot (even during winter!) but Art really helped me mentally ride up a steep hill on the last leg and I felt really accomplished afterwards. So big thank you to Art!! The kayaking was amazing and an experience we'll never forget.

      Big tip is to bring lots of sunscreen!!!

      Well organized, and the tour guide was super friendly. However we were picked up at 8:30 (spot in timing btw, well done) and back in the hotel by 16:45. We did about 1.5 hours of mountain biking and about the same for kayaking. That’s 3 hours worth of activity however you lose your entire day due to logistics and unnecessary (for our specific tour, a very easy going kayak trip) explanations about the river and how to kayak. I did however learn how to “EDDY OUT!!!” :)

      Sights are ok, nothing all too special.

      Thank you for taking your time to review Indeed the Bike and kayak tour is a relaxing and pleasurable trip. In regards to our instructional service ,One never knows , the kayak Lessons in the morning may have contributed to that "easy going kayak trip". Glad to be of service and enjoy many more days on rivers around the world. I hope you will make use of your new learned skills. I am sorry to hear that the northern Thai Jungle (Mae Teang Forest Reserve) did not awake the special peace inside you that so many experience when paddling through this serene countryside Happy wave trail Aidan

      We are a group of 4 backpackers and decided to see Chiang Mai on bicycles on our first morning in Chiang Mai. Stumbled upon Chiang Mai Mountain Biking & kayaks which was near our guesthouse.

      The rented bicycles were in good condition and served us well the first day, traveling to as far as Chiang Mai University. Cycling along the old city gates and exploring the city slowly allowed us to feel the city's vibe and feel the people on a closer level, like a local.

      On day two, we decided to go with their recommendation for a easy Kayaking trip at Chiang Dao. We left the place on time and took an hour ride to the outskirts to start the kayaking trip. The guide was knowledgeable about the terrain and waters and taught us all how to kayak before heading down the river. The owner (Aidan) also kindly lent us his waterproof camera for us to take pictures.

      Over the next hour or so, we navigated the rivers and it obstacles (with the help of the useful guides), enjoyed the wonderful mountain views, and saw some villages along the way. The trip along the river revealed a lesser seen side of Chiang Mai.

      The kayak trip ended with a sumptuous lunch of basil chicken with egg (pra ka pow) before we sat the song teaw back to Chiang Mai.

      Definitely recommended for nature and sports lovers looking for an adventure in Chiang Mai

      'A' was my guide and he really made what could have been a rather dull trip for a solo traveler fun and memorable. He shared his humor, friendship and knowledge without reserve and with so much enthusiasm.
      Althoughh the activities were pretty easy, they left good memories and felt authentic and organic. Lim was a good driver and super easy going and friendly.
      This tour is perfect if you just need a day to chill but also wants to be active and outdoors.

      If you are looking to get out and about in the countryside outside of Chiang Mai, this is a great option. Not too strenuous, but you are outside all day. Our guides Golf (his dad's favorite sport, as he told us) and K took good care of us. My wife had broken her wrist in a bike crash several months ago,and this was her first time back on a bike - and they were very attentive to her (she was fine; enjoyed it once she had ridden a bit). The temple visit before the biking was enjoyable as it was less crowded than the temples in town. Seeing the farm fields by bike was also a nice part of the day, especially if you are into cooking and eating Thai food - we saw many of the items that were part of our meals during our stay! The transition to the kayak part of the trip was very efficient, and the kayaking itself was extremely easy - you are floating with the current, just needing to steer from time to time. And the meal at the end was likewise right there when we got off the river. The only constructive criticism I would offer is that we should either have brought something to eat (water was provided) as the market we stopped at was closed that day, or the company should have some back-up food to offer. Overall, though, one of the best days of our trip!

      We did tour number 20,the half bike, half kayak day and I would definately recommend.
      Booking process easy, just emailed and Aidan answered straight away. Pick up puctual. For the bike part we were only us 2, then we joined the other couple for the river activity.
      Bike we did with Jennifer and he was great. Nice gentle ride, beautiful scenery and we loved the market stop where he explained the produce and invited us to try some fried pumpkin and banana.
      The kayaking was fantastic. Very gentle. We were just 4 guests and had 2 guides. Actually half way through my husband asked if he could try paddle surf instead and the guide swapped his board for the kayak.
      Lunch is simple but filling (fried rice and fried chicken) in a pretty garden with hammacks to relax.
      Overall a very nice day with a good, attentive, reliable company.

      Jane was our tour guide and he was excellent; knowledgeable, caring, and funny. The biking is a good distance, and while it's hot, the hills and open landscape provide a great breeze. The biking trip also stops at a temple, Wat Ban Den, which you'll think is even better than the biggest in Bangkok. The kayaking is on the Mae Ping River and it's a route with low current. You kayak with the current so you can take breaks and continue on the route. Totally recommended!
