Full description
The tour starts by picking up from your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter or the meeting point. Choose to have a private guide or go on a fun group tour. You will be greeted by the guide and driver for a safety briefing and introduction to your Soviet-era Minsk bike. Then, begin your urban adventure to the best sights, neighborhoods, and food spots in Hanoi. Dive into the real Hanoi and visit the more hidden parts of the city. Taste a slice of Hanoian life in the maze of backstreets, tiny alleyways, local homes, schools, and markets, experiencing where and how locals live, work, and play. Next, move onto the second part of the tour, where you’ll pass by and stop at the must-see sights. You’ll see many places, including: Ho Chi Minh mausoleum (which is considered the Mecca of the Vietnamese), The 1000-year-old Buddhist and Taoist temples of Tran Quoc, the Temple of Literature, the historical training track, the enchanting French Quarter, the hustling and bustling Old Quarter, the romantic lakes of Hoan Kiem, West Lake, the Hanoi Opera House, and the famous Long Bien bridge. You will also visit the poetic and peaceful villages and floating community along the Red River. Enrich your experience with the harmonious contrast between the city and the countryside of Hanoi. While en route between stops, grab a bite to eat at authentic local restaurants, eateries, and food stalls. Savor the tastiest Hanoi’s dishes, including family heirloom and secret recipe dishes.

If you only do one tour in Hanoi this your should be the one. Our guide Tam communicated well before the tour, he and the riders arrived to our hotel early. We were a family of seven and every single one of us rate this as the best thing we did in a busy tour schedule in Hanoi. The tour started with all guides introducing themselves to their passenger and making them feel safe. The bikes are old and very cool, the helmets that you are given are unique. it takes a few minutes to grasp the flow of traffic once settled in we all got the groove of how this chaos works. The stops we made were excellent with a great explanation from Tam our fantastic guide. We went over the oldest bridge in Hanoi with a stop on the middle, then for the next few hours covered so much of the city , food and drinks were plentiful and our dinner stop we would never have found, great food with a social responsibility and sustainability story, celebrating re-use. This is a tour with a difference. Do it

Best part of my trip in Hanoi! Motorcycles are fun and Lucas was a safe and so nice! Mary gave great history and explanations for all our stops. I saw so many I didn’t know about - banana island and going through the very narrow residential streets were highlights. Amazing!

Dat my guide was AMAZING, a perfect driver able to go even in the most complex streets and that knew a lot about the culture of Vietnam and he was always really gentle. The tour was amazing and in a day I was able to see the touristic but even the hidden Hanoi. The food and the drinks were just amazing….
