Full description

Head off on a motorbike tour to discover Hanoi like a real local. Hop on the back of the motorbike and let your driver/guide show you the main sights of the bustling city.

Begin your tour and stop at landmarks like the historic Opera House, dating back to the 10th century. Move on to the St Joseph Cathedral and continue to Long Bien Brigde, the oldest, rustiest bridge built by the French in Hanoi.

Arrive at the Ba Dinh district, with the Tran Quoc pagoda located right near the West Lake, the biggest freshwater lake in Hanoi. Be overwhelmed by spectacular views, then stop at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the last resting place of President Ho Chi Minh, and see One Pillar Pagoda.

Explore the Temple of Literature and take a short walk on the campus of Vietnam’s first university. Finally, stop by a coffee place and try out Hanoi's infamous egg coffee or simply zoom through the streets in style before tucking into a delicious local meal.

We had a fantastic time with Mike and Travis! Travelling on the back of their mopeds across Hanoi was an experience we will never forget. They tailored the day's activities to suit us (e.g. trying food we had not had before) and were enthusiastic and knowledgeable when showing us around the city. It was a much more authentic experience than 'more typical' tours and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for the best way to experience Hanoi (plus they took great pictures!). Thank you both, from James and Eleanor!

The tour was wondefull. Being part for a bit of the creative caos traffic in Hanoi is an experience that will let you feel more like a traveller and not a turist. We covered many spots I would not be able to see otherwise in my limited time. The guide was very kind, with perfect english and answering all my questions about culture, society, history of Vietnam. They also added a stop to took me into a place where I could find some camera films. The food and coffee was great. I recommend the tour very highly!

Gina was super knowledgeable and told me stories and history to each temple and key sight. We managed to cover so much ground on the bike - she knows the roads and never once was I nervous. We topped it off with Vietnamese Street food in the old quarter. I couldn't have asked for a better 4h
