Le Xuan (Sam) was an excellent tour guide. He ensured I was safe, gave a good overview of the history of some of the sights we visited, and was very personable. It was great to get to know him as a tour guide and on a personal level. What should one expect during or as part of the tour: 1. An early start time. I was picked up at 5:30AM. 2. To sweat especially if you’re nervous about traffic on a narrow street. 3. To try food and drinks you might not be used to. 4. Light traffic during the early hours. 5. You’ll stop a few times along the way to take in some of the sights.
Binh my tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the North Eastern Suburbs of Hanoi. I ended up being the only one on the tour so we could pick up the pace a bit. It was a great fun ride around the North East of Hanoi. The weather was great, sunny and early 20 degrees Celsius. Great start to the day. I would highly recommend this tour. If you enjoy cycling around NYC and around Manhattan, queens and Brooklyn, you'll love cycling around the Northern suburbs of hanoi.
It was a bit rushed as two types of tours were in the same 17 passenger bus. Time was wasted dropping some people off at their buffet lunch and, although our Bungalow lunch was mostly delicious, there were way too many courses. The swimming item was essentially dropped from the itinerary at the beginning. As the bikes we used were absolutely awful, I would’ve preferred swimming instead. It was a hot day (by Canadian standards).
The tour in total was really nice. We had fun with the bicycle tour with wonderful view in the countryside. Also the lunch was very good and offered in the perfect location, we loved the swimming pool there. The view and scenery on the boat trip was stunning! Only thing that we didn’t like was the way people on the boat forced us to buy something for a price weigh to high. If we didn’t want they kept pushing all boat trip.
Wonderful experience, from the communication through WhatsApp when we first arranged the trip, to the final drop off back at our hotel, we felt is safe and very competent hands. A wonderful trip exploring some of Vietnam’s highlights
