  • Hanoi Old Quarter: 1-Hour Cyclo Tour

    1. Hanoi Old Quarter: 1-Hour Cyclo Tour

    After departure from the meeting point, which heads out once every hour, sit back and relax with your driver pedaling you from behind. Enjoy an unobstructed view, and take plenty of photos. The Old Quarter, with its unique architecture from the French colonial times, is the heart of Hanoi and is home to many city highlights. Observe the Dong Xuan Wholesale Market, Joseph Cathedral Church and the Opera House. Take in the beautiful view from Hoan Kiem Lake for the perfect photographs of the city. Ride with the cyclo at the perfect pace to enjoy some of the 36 shaded streets of this historic district. Admire the products made and sold on each street, such as sugar, bamboo, leather or silver.

    However, we were a little disappointed as we gave a small tip but the drivers expected more and were a little unhappy. We were told that tips were included in the price.

Everything you need to know about Hanoi's main landmarks. Guide explained everything about the city and about the Viet culture including a lot of random unrelated wuestion that came from my tour colleagues. The next day even though we wanted to visit any other landmarks by ourselves ..we realised that the tour covered everything important so there were no other objectives left for us to visit which we haven't already seen. The puppet show was a nice finish to the tour and I have considered it some sort of conclusion for all you witnessed and learned during the tour.

We were with Jenny the whole evening and really had a lot of fun! We were picked up from the hotel on time and felt very well cared for in the hustle and bustle of the city. The small hidden corners were definitely worth a visit, the food was just great and also suitable for the European taste. We had a really nice chat and had a very nice and funny evening with very tasty food!

the tour was excellent, the boat trip was particularly incredible. Nghia was an excellent guide, he spoke English very well and was extremely helpful, responsible and friendly. Some reviews comment on not having much time but that is the nature of a one day trip that is 100km out of a busy city. Definitely worth it if you have day to spare :)

Great way to see Halong Bay in one day! Bus journey is obviously quite long but if you need to squeeze it into 1 day it isn’t much to sacrifice. Benjamin was a great guide, so helpful and spoke amazing English!

very well organised, uy was a really nice tourguide and his english was perfect! also big thanks to driver huy for getting us there quick and save!
