Seeing Hanoi waking up was a great experience! The guide Sam (Luong) was not rushing and giving enough time and info to wonder, understand and enjoy. I definitely got a better feeling about how people live in Vietnam (from morning sports over spiritual routines and, of course, food). Cycling was also a nice way to explore: much easier to move with the flow than trying to find a path as pedestrian (although it doesn't hurt if you have some cycling routine because the traffic will need all your attention). I also liked that the company supports community projects. The only thing that could be improved is to mention the rough pick-up time already in the tour description (05:30am!) and then inform participants one day in advance of the exact pick-up time. I had already spent some time in Hanoi and was looking for a tour that would give me a new perspective. Thanks to Sam, mission accomplished! Highly recommended!

What a superb tour!! What a superb guide!! Ruby was very courteous, fun, informative, full of life, and a truly pleasant person. We went on a ride to a fabulous ancient temple, a very local yummy food eatery for banh xeo, a pagoda, the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum for a spectacular sunset, refreshing drinks at a unique vietcong Cong Caphe, an old french railway bridge, the Opera house, and the Cathedral! And all this in the flow (& against) of chaotic Hanoi traffic! Simply breathtaking.. Thanks very much, Ruby! You did a fantastic job on one of the best tours I’ve ever experienced around the world! Awesome!!

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.

Det här var en fantastisk upplevelse. Min guide Fifi var väldigt serviceinriktad och var noga med att mina önskemål blev uppfyllda. God mat på lokala restauranger, huvudsakliga kulturinslag och scootertur mitt i Hanois storstadspuls. Mycket nöjd!
