Full description
Head off on a motorbike tour to discover Hanoi like a real local. Hop on the back on the motorbike and let your driver/guide show you the main sights of the bustling city. Stop at main landmarks like the historic Opera House, dating back to the 10th century. Built during the Ly Dynasty, it is a true historic landmark in Hanoi. After that stop at the St.Joseph Cathedral, head off to Long Bien Brigde- the oldest, rustiest bridge built by the French in Hanoi. Next stop is to Ba Dinh district with the Tran Quoc pagoda located right near the West lake which is the biggest fresh water lake in Hanoi. You'll be overwhelm with the spectacular view. Stop at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum- the last resting place of president Ho Chi Minh and One Pillar Pagoda. We can't miss out on the Temple of Literature too. Take a short walk on the campus of Vietnam’s first university. Final stop is the train street. You can stop by a coffee place and try out on our infamous egg coffee, zoom through the streets in style before tucking into a delicious local meal.

I had an amazing time today on tour! I got to see a good bit of Hanoi. Andy was a fantastic driver and very knowledgeable about the History of the town and the sites. Andy also picked an amazing lunch. I felt very safe riding around with Andy and would definitely do it again. I would also definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family!

This is a great way to experience a slice of Hanoi for a couple of hours. Being on a scooter means we covered much more ground than had I done it on my own. Tra, my guide, was absolutely brilliant. Explained the history and customs and always had an answer for my questions. Lovely.

Make sure you ask for Giang when you book this tour. Her English is great and her driving is not scary. Lol. I really enjoyed my tour with her. I had already been in Hanoi for a month when I booked this but I still learned so much! She really catered the experience to my needs and preferences. Thank you Giang!
