The service was very good. The staff is really kind. The vehicles they provided were in good condition because of which we were able to complete our trip effortlessly. We appreciate their service.
that was worth getting early for. In very early hours streets are not crowded so beginning of the tour is easy. All of us were given reflective vests so we were clearly seen and locals exercised caution. Guides spoke English very well and we could ask questions and get objective answers. One of them was always riding with last people in the group so none of us got lost. If you healthy enough to ride the bike and can put up with with crazy traffic for few hours (towards the end of the tour - definitely do it. You will not be pedaling whole time. It is 10-15 minute ride increments between 5-30 minute stops (depending on what you are about to see)
