I’m coming during rainy season (May-September). What if it rains?

The rainstorms here typically consist of scattered showers that occur in the afternoon and are of short duration. In most cases, our guides will find shelter, have a nice chat about local history, nature, the meaning of life, etc. Before you know, the rain has passed and you are on your way again. In the less common cases, when the rain does not stop in a short period of time and is not heavy, your guide will offer rain ponchos and the tour will continue unless someone melts.

Do you offer private tours?

Yes, we do. Please contact us about your plans and we will be happy to accommodate you.

Can everyone join a tour?

We cycle at a leisurely pace and make frequent stops at interesting destinations along the way. You don’t have to be an athlete, but you should at least be comfortable handling a bike and have a basic fitness.

What about safety on the road?

Your safety is our priority number one. It is your guide’s responsibility to look well after you. Our routes have been carefully planned to minimize risks. In downtown Yangon, we will only cycle a few blocks to the ferry terminal. In Dala, we will mainly follow the smaller roads with almost no cars. Please give way to local cyclists, motorbikes and thrishaws. Wearing helmets is required.

Your tour includes local food. Is it safe to eat?

Every traveler knows that when you are trying many foods from different countries you always run the risk of having a bad reaction to the food. Myanmar is no exception and unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you will not get sick from the food on our tours.

However, we take food safety seriously and have taken the following precautions:

  • The restaurants that we pick are popular with local people.
  • Every tea house, restaurant and street-food vendor that we include on our tours is carefully checked by us to ensure that the food is prepared in a safe and hygienic manner.
  • Street food is actually relatively safe. It has a very high turnover and it is, therefore, always fresh.
  • You are able to see how the food is prepared and what goes into it.

What should I bring and wear?

Light coloured, comfortable, breathable clothing with nothing long that will get caught up in the bike and become an emergency brake is recommended. The elevated paths that thread through the greenery have lots of shade, but those who sunburn easily may want to wear a hat or grow lots of hair. Sunblock is available. Covered shoes with sturdy soles are recommended, but comfortable sandals with supportive soles are fine too. Typical Asian construction-worker shoes (rubber flip-flops) are not recommended.

What is your cancellation policy?
In line with the latest international industry standards we have moved to a 24-hour standard cancellation policy. Under this policy, customers will be able to cancel their bookings 24 hours prior to the tour date for a full refund. If customers cancel within the 24 hour period, there is a 100% cancellation fee.
