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.

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

'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!

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!

We loved this trip! After a 45 minute drive out of the city, we stopped in the countryside to get on our bikes, took an hour to visit a couple of temples...quite different to the temples we’ve seen in Chiang Mai and definitely well worth a stop...before cycling through beautiful countryside alongside fields full of rice, garlic and tobacco. After a couple of hours, we switched to the kayaks then spent a couple of hours paddling downstream where we finally stopped and had a late lunch. En route, we stopped so people could have a quick swim and cool off. This was a relaxed yet active day. There were plenty opportunities for breaks and local snacks along the bike route (we’d recommend the friend bananas) All the arrangements for this trip were timed to perfection and well organised. Definitely one of our favourite trips in Chiang Mai.

We took a very basic tour which included about two hours of bicycles and then about two more hours of kayaking in a very quite river (We visited in September)

During the bicycle part it was only me and my wife and our guide(Bird) ,which was super friendly and informative, and really made the tour interesting and also tasty(we visited a local food market).

The guide also took very good pictures of us during the trip using his own camera, and sent it too us later via email.

The kayaking part was slow and calm, and there was a spot where we could stop the kayaks and get a little bit into the water.

To conclude,
Highly recommended for a short trip to see some nature outside of the city.
This specific trip wasn't very demanding but still felt like a good outside activity.

The bike trip is a bit too short but the road was easy and enjoyed to farmland scenery.
The scenery during our 1-2 hrs kayaking was breathtaking. Our group was group at the river (Ping River). So quiet and calm. The staff were experienced and patient to teach me (the first time kayaker)
