Mandalay Morning and Sunset Tours
Feb 2020
We did both the morning and sunset tours in Mandalay. In the morning, Than Htike Aung took us out to the market where we snacked on some delicious local food before heading out to the coutryside. It was quite a hot ride with little shade. The countryside was still mostly on the main bitumen roads so it wasn't so much the scenery that captivated us, as much as the workshops and seeing the traditional ways people continue to process goods. Than was a great, friendly and cheerful guide. He always checked up on us and gave information as we were cycling.

In the afternoon tour, the van dropped us off out of town before we started cycling. We were very lucky to see one of the novice processions with children on horses, cows, and even an elephant! Wai Linn Aung was our guide for this segment as we cycled through the ancient city of Inwa. We stopped at some traditional family homes and he would explain how the families conduct their trade. It was an interesting, relaxing and shady ride while we visited the less touristy sites of Inwa and wound our way to Ubein bridge for a sunset boat ride.

For both Mandalay tours the paths were easy to cycle and all relatively flat. However, the afternoon ride was a bit more pleasant as there was more shade and scenice views throughout. Surprisingly, there was no overlap between the morning and afternoon tours so they were equally interesting and definitely not touristy (besides the sunset boat ride at Ubein bridge). Would highly recommend a cycle with Grasshoppers. Two tours in a day was quite tiring though. If I were to choose only one, the afternoon was more enjoyable.

A deferent way to see Mandalay
A great way to get out of the city and see the lovely countryside surrounding Mandalay. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed our time chatting with him. The visits to local farms and tea houses were the highlights.

fine tour - bad preparation
Jan 2020
We had a great tour with our guide San. It was very interesting to meet and hear about the farmers and villagers and cycle in the countryside. Highly recommended.

It was also my second trip booked via tripadvisor. Unfortunately when I had booked the tour, it didn't inform about where to meet. It just said Mandalay - so I had to contact Grasshopper via Whatsapp to get the specific dates.

Morning Private Tour
Just had a tour with Wai Linn Aung, (Linn) he was very informative, friendly and professional. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle amd bustle of the city. Visited a rice processing facility, a farm growing special mushrooms, a place where they made charcoal bricks, and also a local restaurant in the end, where we tried a few yummy local snacks and green tea. The scenery could have been a little nicer, but the local smiles made up for it. All in all, I can definitely recommend the tour.

Fun morning on a morning cycling tour of Mandalay with Hlaing Phyo Oo and the team with visits to the market, the worlds largest book, through rice paddies to a local rice + mushroom farm and a traditional tea house. A great way to see the city and nearby villages and great food along the way. Highly recommend.

Interesting and great fun
We had a great trip with our guide. A very nice guy, who showed us many special places in and around Mandalay which you normally would not find. He could tell us a lot about the people, their lives and the religion.

The mountainbikes were good and the trip was also fun and safe for our children. Absolutely recommended!

Exercise and Learn
I had the tour all to myself today. We started off visiting a market where I learned about some of the items sold there. Then we went to see a man who cuts bamboo to make construction materials. Next we rode out to the countryside. We stopped by the home of a rice farmer and chatted for a while. Then we stop for some snacks at a coffee house where I was treated to some delicious food. It was an interesting tour with plenty of variety.
