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!

The tour was great. However, what would make it even more fantastic to go with the "Instagram-worthy" title is to offer professionally taken pictures as an add-on service.

Leo is a good guide. He speaks fluent English and was knowledgeable about the history of Hanoi and surroundings. Will use GetYourGuide again soon in other countries.

Best tour we did in Vietnam. Our guide Finn was brilliant. We took the 8am tour which was great timing as we got to see the morning train come through train street.
