Hanoi Cyclo and Walking Small Group Tour
What to Expect
See local life on a small-group cyclo and walking tour of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, aka 36 Old Streets. Stop by countless street-side shops, food stalls and family-owned eateries to sample regional specialties. You can relax while your cyclo driver does the pedaling on this everyday mode of transport. Select from several departure times for a 3.5 hour tour with personalized commentary from an informative guide.
The tour guide will welcome you at your hotel lobby, then begin the walking tour in old quarter "36 streets" to visit some famous and specialized food stalls, local restaurants and shops where they run their businesses everyday. You will certainly watch authentic dishes being made and taste them too. (Vegetarian and other dietary requirements can be catered for).
The old quarter in Hanoi is over one thousand years old and today retains much of the old flavor that made the area special in earlier times. Each street was the exclusive domain of one trade (guilds) so there are whole streets of blacksmiths, silver shops, paper shops, headstone makers and more. Originally there were just 36 streets in the old quarter, but today there are more than 50 streets, although many of the streets are short, so the area is very compact.
Visiting Hanoi by cyclo really gives you the chance to dive into the soul of Hanoi. This authentic way of traveling allows visitors to discover the city center in intense emotions. It's like you are in the center of a whirlwind of movement, wrapped in a cacophony of horns and the bustle of people trying to reach their destination in the midst of all this excitement.
At the end of the tour you are free to continue exploring the area, or your guide will assist you with directions or a taxi back to your hotel.
