Our tours

Co van Kessel Bangkok, Bike- and boat tours, was founded over 30 years ago by an innovative and adventurous Dutchman named Co van Kessel.  Being Bangkok’s original bicycle tour we aim to take you off the beaten path and show you the REAL Bangkok. Discover one of Asia’s most captivating cities from an insiders point of view as we immerse you in the fascinating lifestyle and culture of the Thai people.  Our half-day and full-day excursions are designed not to bore you with talk, but immerse you in an experience where your individual fascinations emerge.

Bangkok Bike tours

Bangkok’s original bike tour is not only an ideal way to beat the heat in this extremely flat city.  It is the ONLY way to access the heart of an incredibly diverse metropolis whose many quaint neighborhoods remain inaccessible by car to this day.  Cycling away from the main roads and infamous Bangkok traffic, our tours make use of small side streets, alleyways, and footpaths to deliver an urban adventure that will delight even the most jaded of seasoned travelers.
