“Bike tour Hanoi”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Last year we went to Hanoi with 2 friends and our 2 little girls (1 & 2.5 years old). We only had 2 days in Hanoi before moving on to Halong Bay, so we didn't have a lot of time.

De bike tour was perfect for us. They arranged 2 child seats for the kids and with our private tour.
In 4 hours we saw a lot of Hanoi, all the different area's and we heard a lot about the city, culture and country.

I is absolutely a must do if you want to explore the real Hanoi!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Its a great way to see the back streets of Hanoi with people who know the city. You won't see as much on an ordinary tour. Well worth the effort.

“See the REAL Hanoi on 2 wheels”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The cycling tours of Hanoi are absolutely brilliant. 2 guides take you on a tour of the parts of Hanoi that other tours simply cannot reach. They use local knowledge to tell you all about this brilliant city and show you how real Hanoians live their day to day lives. You also get to sample roadside cuisine with tea and lunch breaks at personally selected cares. Nothing 'touristy' about it, you feel like you really get to know the city.

The traffic is madness, and you do need your wits about you, but the guides look after you and so long as you have a bit of courage, you'll be fine!

Did this tour today, a great find and a brilliant tour. Hope it gets more rave reviews it truly deserves.
