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.

Great motorbike tour in the streets of Hanoi...The guide Minch was a very good and careful driver which is very important in these streets with heavy traffic.We passed from the most important sites of interest in the city,had a coffee in the amazing train street and had enough stops to take pictures...And an amazing lunch at the end!Definitely recommended!

A really good, not so typical, experience for someone who has never been to Hanoi before. I took my (active) parents in their late 70s and the drivers made all efforts to help them enjoy the tour despite their age. The tour guide Mai/May is also excellent and very personable.

I absolutely loved this tour. My guides Finn and Son were awesome, and it was incredible to have a one-to-one experience with them as the other people that booked sadly didn’t turn up! We saw some of the coolest backstreet sites, and I really enjoyed the little secret spots that they shared with me that you would only get with locals! Also, the included lunch was amazing, I didn’t even realise that the tour included the meal. They did a fantastic job of doing an all vegetarian version for me and absolutely everything was delicious! I learned so much from the store and had a great time on the vintage bike and taking photos
