    Stop: 4 hours
    Morning Tours 8:00am – 12:30pm (Lunch included at the end) Afternoon Tours 1:00pm – 5:30pm (Lunch included at the beginning) Duration: 4.5 hours Pick-up & Drop-off: Your hotel or requested location You’ll be greeted by our female drivers and tour guide wearing traditional dress – Ao Dai at your hotel lobby for a safety briefing and detailed itinerary of your journey. We use a fleet of brand new 2018 + 2019 Honda Lead scooters equipped with PASSENGER BACKRESTS for comfort, you feel like you are in a lounge chair, not hanging on tightly as some bikes you may do. From there the adventure begins! Our bike tours will take you through the winding labyrinth of back streets and alleys of the innermost parts of Hanoi, to the sprawling city scapes and beautiful architecture that line the main streets. Along the way our knowledgeable guides will tell you stories of the rich history and fun facts of all the must see landmarks of Hanoi. From the famous opera house, to the crashed remnants of a B-52 “Flying Fortress” bomber that reached its final resting place in a small lake. Catch a glimpse into the lives of the locals and see the bustling markets full of life and vibrancy. As we exit the city we pass the Long Bien bridge, an iconic symbol of Vietnam’s capitol built during the French colonial time over 100 years ago. As the tour takes you out of the hustle and bustle of the city, you’ll be welcomed into the more quiet and contemplative side of Hanoi. Surrounded by green gardens with farmland stretching in all directions, you’ll enter the canopy of guava and banana trees as our tour leads you down dirt paths into the heart of Hanoi’s agricultural countryside- The Banana island . From there, the tour carries on, leading you along the shores of the West Lake as the cool breeze off the water cools you down before heading back to the narrow alleys leading to Huu Tiep lake and the legendary Reunification Train Street. On our trip we will visit a local family and have chance to talk to the owner who is a war veteran about his interesting stories of our country from his childhood to modern Vietnam and its legacy as well as learn more about Vietnamese culture and customs. Finally your whirlwind tour wraps up as we make our way back to the city to rest and recharge. Your tour will come to a close at a authentic eatery for lunch and a local cafe, a famous spot for Vietnamese egg coffee. Dressing standard: Light and comfortable clothing and shoes. Sunscreen and sunglasses are recommended.

This is more of an experience than a tour as you don’t stop off at locations. Although you do have a great lunch and stop for egg coffee and learn about the food. You get to see so much of the wider city and it’s liberating and so much fun to be on the back of the bike! My

Response from Davids_Lg, Manager at Hanoi City Insight Motorbike Tour - 4,5 hours
Responded Mar 6, 2020
Dear Jo, Thank you very much for travelling with us and giving nice compliments about our company. We are really happy to hear that you have enjoyed your trip with us. As indicated in our itinerary, Our tours are one-of-a-kind and really different from most others out there as we take guests off the beaten path through the meandering back streets and labyrinth of alleys to show authentic places and hidden gems of Hanoi. We only pass outside main tourist attractions because we believe people can do by themselves. This is the reason we organize motorbike tours. However we do stop on our unique itinerary: We stop at: Banana island to show people a canopy of guava, banana trees and farmland. We stop at : Long Bien Bridge - an iconic symbol of Vietnam’s capitol built during the French colonial time over 100 years ago. We stop at : the legendary Reunification Train Street. We stop at : Huu Tiep Lake - where a B-52 “Flying Fortress” bomber reached its final resting place in a small lake. We stop at : local restaurant to taste local food for lunch. We stop at : a local coffee to enjoy unique egg coffee and a few more depend on time availability. At all stops our guide will give information and explanations as well as time for you to ask questions you may have and also time to take photos, drink water. We try to make the best of your time within limited 4.5 hours so you can have a no hassle tour and in the mean time see more of the Hanoi that most people would miss without travelling with us. We also use a fleet of brand new 2018 + 2019 Honda Lead scooters equipped with PASSENGER BACKRESTS for comfort, you feel like you are in a lounge chair, not hanging on tightly as some bikes you may do. I hope with my explanations our guests will understand more about us and services we provide. If you need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email at: Hotline 24/7 or Whatsapp +84(0)98 840 2008 Happy travels Mike - Motorbike City Tours Operator
