We are all first-time pillion rider hence were apprehensive to sign up for this tour. But no regrets, we are able to see quite a few places of interest in Hanoi within half a day given that motorbike is the most efficient mode of transport under the chaos traffic condition. However, we didnt feel unsafe on the bike , and also, all on the road couldnt go fast too as traffic was busy. The package included one meal as well which we were consulted on what we want to have.
Admin wise, I received a text 2-3 days before departure to coordinate some details as well as arrange starting time, as we enroled for private tour. The guides are young men, friendly and engaging.
My private tour guide Brian who I have to say was quite well prepared was an excellent tour guide. As it was slightly raining, he provide raincoats for the tour to protect us from the rain and he was always ensuring that I was alright. Although it was raining, I really enjoyed myself as it was cooling and quite fun to ride in the rain while exploring the old quarters and history of Hanoi.. I highly recommend this tour if you are game to ride a motorcycle while exploring the streets of Hanoi. P.S take note that there is a lot of honking from other motorist, but that the way they do things in Vietnam..😅
We cannot recommend this tour enough! Our motorbike tour guides (Ryan, Linh, Rodney and Martin) were very hospitable and friendly. Ryan especially shared lots of interesting details and history of the places we visited. Travelling via motorbike is also very convenient. If you want to cover the key spots in Hanoi, this is the tour.
We also really enjoyed chatting with our guides along the way to each stop on the tour, getting to know more about life in Hanoi and the sights along the road.
The tour ended with a delicious meal at an eatery filled with locals. We tried a deep fried rice puff dish which we have never come across before in Hanoi! It was amazing.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience and a peek at what Hanoi has to offer. We had a great time!
P.S. Ryan is a skilled photographer, he took very lovely group photos for us :)
The ancient capital may be somewhat underwhelming for those familiar with temples and palaces in Asia, but it's still interesting, also partly due to the surrounding landscape. Hopefully it could receive better maintenance and restoration in the future.
Lunch was quite decent and had plenty of options.
I was somewhat fearful of the biking part, with many reviewers pointing out how old and poorly maintained they were. This is still true, but luckily there were enough to choose from and the second one I picked up was alright. The road is easy to ride and the views are lovely.
The boat ride was excellent, providing great views, and navigating under/through 3 natural tunnels under the karst hills.
However, this is were the tipping aspect gets a bit pushy. At the halfway point (as we turn around), there were people on boats selling some food and drinks, and insisting that we buy some for the 'driver'. Again on returning, the driver calls for a tip. All I had with me at the time was 10,000 VND, which he refused. Oh well.
The entire time I spent in Hanoi there were zero cases of tipping being a thing, so it looks more like taking advantage of captive tourists rather than a cultural custom. I do not enjoy being guilted into arbitrary 'fees', especially after having paid for a tour, the price of which should be set to reflect the costs and labor involved.
I know they're hardworking; I'm hardworking too, but I don't charge my clients again after they've already paid my company for the service
I was supposed to tour with a friend but unfortunately, she cant come and I did the tour alone. I was hesistant at first to go with the tour but I still did. And it was the best decision I made in Hanoi!
My tour guide was Ms Louis, she speaks english well and can also speak other languages like japanese, korean and even filipino!
She brought me to places with her motorbike (she is a good and safe driver). She knows a lot of stories about the culture and tradition in Vietnam.
We ate banh xeo and she also took me to the inventor of egg coffee.
She even let me hitch at her motorbike going back to my hotel.
Four of us took a tour with 4 young University students: Tea, Lizzie, Nam Anh and Jenny. They were excellent drivers on the motorbikes and gave us a brilliant tour of Hanoi. We visited the Opera House, the Confucian temple, the Ho Chi Minh Complex including the mausoleum and one pillar Pagoda. We then had a delicious lunch in pho cuon restaurant, followed the famous egg coffees in Cafe Giáng. The guides had excellent English and between them could answer all of the questions we had. This tour is well worth doing while you are in Hanoi as it takes you out of the old quarter/your immediate surroundings to all over the city.
