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!!

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.

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!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Ava and U Bien Sunset bike riding tour with our awesome guide, Sai.
We did the tour in late April and the temperatures were very hot, 40+, and we are 2 50+ Aussies unused to the heat and humidity, but the tour was a great mix of flat (and sometimes shady) cycling mainly on back roads, tracks and village streets, and well-timed stops to visit local attractions and home industries (bamboo weaving, alm bowl making, cigarette making, mechanical and manual loom weaving).
The tour was perfectly timed to finish at U Bien bridge for the sunset, and had plenty of stops for drinks and photos.
Sai was a fount of information and his English was very good.
The bikes were in very good condition, and the whole experience was one that we would highly recommend.

I ended up not being able to go on this tour as I had come down with something. So my friend was taken alone. So this is his experience
“Lots of interesting stops along the way, beautiful sunset boat. The cycling was tough in parts, but this was probably due to my own personal fitness! Sadly I couldn’t do the last 9km but they got the minibus to pick me up for the last bit. The guide was super helpful and informative. Even calling his wife (a nurse) for advise on some medicine for my friend! Which he then picked up on the way back. Hlaing Phyo Oo really made the journey for me. Thank you!”

This tour was very well organized. I was picked up at my hotel and we drove out of the city before we got on our bikes. The bikes were in good shape with all the gears working. We also were given helmets. There was a crew available to fix anything as well as set up a snack for us 2/3 in. We had a guide in front and a guide in back making sure we were all set. There was a family in our group and they even had a great add on for their 5 year old. I hadn’t been on a bicycle in a couple of years but it was still a great ride that ended on a boat overlooking UBein bridge at sunset. Feel great to combine some exercise into my travels.

I got picked up at the hotel, they were on time. I was alone so I got a private tour.

My tour guide was amazing. He knows a lot about the villages and if you ask you can also stop next to the road and ask some questions. My guide was Hlaing if you get him as your guide, you are definitely lucky.

I next time I book a tour I will definitely book it again at grasshoppers.
