Our guide Sugar was awesome, funny, attentive. We booked the tour one day in advance and were the only ones on the tour. We were pleasantly surprised, that the street food was included in the price. He even picked vegetarian options for us since we don't eat meat. We toured large parts of the city during the night, including a short boat trip. The road was a bit bumpy sometimes but Sugar was very carefully when crossing streets and making sure we did not get lost. The whole 3 hours were used up, we even took a bit longer since we arived a bit early. Strongly recommend, one of the highlight on our Bangkok trip.

The entire tour was memorable! Our guides, Sugar and Scott , were both very friendly, fun and knowledgeable. They made us feel welcome and at ease on our bikes. We tasted some delicious local food which is impossible to find for new travelers and this was a perfect way to see the city!

So much food!!!! This was a great guide that I'll be recommending to everyone who comes to Bangkok. It's jam packed with food, culture, and historical information. Mod was our guide. She was super energetic and super knowledgeable. Request her if you can!
