Very Nice Tour
Feb 2020
This was a good way to get out of Mandalay and see some of the life outside the city and some nice historic sites as well. Bike ride easy going - as advertised - so no worries if you are not a hardcore cyclist. The guide, a young man named Linn, did a very nice job - he was enthusiastic, flexible, knowledgeable, and spoke very good English, which he was eager to take to the next level. This was my second tour with Grasshopper (previously did one in Bagan) and they are well organized and easy to work with.

Great guide, good equipment and very professional. Worth the money
Feb 2020
We had a fantastic afternoon doing the U Bein Bridge Sunset Cycling Day Tour from Mandalay. We saw so many different things and the trip was exactly how it was described ending the day on the river with the sunset at the bridge. I have to mention our guide who was superb Wai Linn Aung a young lad who was so enthusiatic about what he did, the places he took us and his knowledge was great too.
My wife hadn't been on a bike for over 20 years and she managed and loved it too.
Thanks again Grasshopper and we will use your services again the next time we are in one of your locations!!

Don’t miss this opportunity- will be the highlight of your stay in Mandalay!
This is a fantastic way to see some of the smaller villages and understand all the great work they do to make a living. Our tour guide was Lyn and he was fantastic. The finale of the sunset at U Bein bridge was remarkable and this tour was the highlight of our stay in Mandalay! Would highly recommend!

Dear Tracey L, Thanks for spending some of your time sharing this feedback and we are so happy that we could make your trip more enjoyable here in Myanmar. This tour is a fantastic way to witness daily life of local people from villages by riding off your bike through old towns of Äva and Amarapura to understand the process of small local industries in those areas, which is also a great way to know more about our country. Also thanks for mentioning our fantastic guide “Lyn” and we will surely pass your words to him. Hope to see you again very soon. Take care and best regards, Win.

We had a great time cycling through Myanmar countryside and temples meeting local people doing their job on the way. Our guide Lin made our tour very fascinating and authentic. Sunset cruise by U Bein bridge ended our day in best possible way.
Highly recommend!

Great way to see Mandalay
Dec 2019 • Solo
This tour was great. Highly recommend. The cycling was not hard. I only wish I had brought a GoPro for on-the-move photography because I kept wanting to stop and take photos along the way. Our guide, Linn, was excellent. We unfortunately didn't have time to walk on the U Bein bridge after the sunset boat ride. That would me my one suggestion to the guides.

21km beautiful cycling
Dec 2019 • Friends
Dan was a great and knowledgeable tour guide taking us around the village and ancient site of Innwa. Much better way to travel than horse and cart in my opinion because you move freely. Dan provides good snacks and we got to sample some local street food also. We cycled 21km (we used a FitBit to measure) through countryside and village stopping at various interesting points as we went. Safety helmets were provided and the bikes were excellent condition. As well as stopping at ruins and pagodas, we also stopped at a weaving factory which was interesting. We took a short ferry hop across the river which was fun and finally we take a rowing boat into the river to look at the U Bein Bridge. Excellent trip, highly recommend.

Great adventure
Oct 2019 • Solo
Cycling around villages and seeing the sunset at the U Bein bridge seemed to be a very right choice for me to escape from the hustling and burstling of Mandalay. I was taken through local houses making tobacco, silk/ cotton weaving, some pagodas and ended with a sunset boat trip by the guide named Hliang Phyo Oo. He was so nice, attentive, knowledgable and paced the tour that made me relaxed. Great adventure, great guide, great bike and great Grassshopper Adventure. I highly recommend this tour.
