This tour was booked for us by our agent, we were expecting to be collected in a Jeep, but were really pleased when 4 motorbikes came. It was a wonderful experience travelling through the Hanoi traffic and then riding to the countryside of Hanoi where we undertook fruit picking and tasting.This was followed by a visit to the ceramic village and then having a go at our own pottery making. The whole tour was an absolute delight which was enjoyed by all us of, the youngest of our group being 14 and the oldest 80!.
Chin Chin and the female drivers were all fantastic throughout, if you are looking for something to do in Hanoi then would highly recommend booking with Chin Chin of Backstreet Tours.

We took this tour as a last minute booking due to a few other things cancelling because of the current Covid 19 crisis. We took the motorbike tour and the guys that took us were so professional and lovely. Boo really knew his stuff and was so passionate about showing us around. We did the morning tour starting at 8am, first stop was to go get some Pho which was delicious (and included in the price), we were then taken to the ceramics village. We had a few hiccups due to things being unexpectedly closed due to Covid 19 but it didn't seem to matter, we enjoyed everything we saw and did anyway. We got to do some hands on playing with clay and pottery wheels which was fun. Despite a few things we couldn't do we were still on the tour from 8-12 so they managed it very well. The guides were disappointed that they couldn't give us the exact tour that was planned but we didn't mind because we had an awesome time. I'd definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking to explore a different side of Hanoi.

I decided to do a half day "backstreet" motorbike tour of Hanoi, and I'm so glad I did! I did the morning tour and my guide was very prompt and super conscious that the driving experience in Hanoi is crazy, to say the least! We went all over Hanoi (and outside of it), visiting so many different areas I never would have thought to go myself. We tried a ton of different food from both the street market, as well as an fantastic restaurant (Pho 31), ordering all amazing dishes.He was super informative about Hanoi and Vietnam as a whole, and I left super full and satisfied. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who wants a non-traditional view of Hanoi (they also have a sister company in Saigon that I went on because this one rocked) - super worth it.

The enthusiasm, attention, knowledge and professionalism of our guide, Andy H., was exceptional. He made the experience come alive and I really felt that I got to see a side of Hanoi that would not be normally accessible to a first-timer to the city, like me. A shout out as well to our driver, Dzung, whose confidence and road skills provided much peace of mind as he safely navigated through the insane Hanoi Traffic.
I would not hesitate to recommend Vietnam Backstreet Tours to anyone interested in a first class tour experience.

The first time I went on tour with my friends, Hanoi was indeed very familiar to us. I have lived in Hanoi for 12 years, but this was the first time I felt the rhythm of life in the place I was attached to. over the past decade.
The tour guide and driver was so enthusiastic, he was willing to let me eat anything on the way that I found "strange". I received very enthusiastic advice.
During this experience trip, I was able to go through small alleys that only a motorbike could pass through, go through the neighborhood or go to cafes crowded with people.
I think the price they offered was really suitable for the value I received in return.

I will recommend my friends to join this experience.

Hanoi is a crazy city for US drivers…terrifying to watch the scooters and cars all going different directions at an intersection. These guys did an awesome job taking our group around and it wasn’t as terrifying on the scooter as it was walking. Martin was the group leader and my driver was Linh. He was so wonderful helping me get my old legs over the seat at each stop. I highly recommend you give them a try if you are in Hanoi. The cost of the tour includes coffee, drinks at one stop, and a fixed traditional meal (again with drinks).

What an experience! This tour is definitely the best in Hanoi, which was made even better by our tour guide Lucas. His English is amazing and he's super kind and knowledgable about Hanoi - any questions we had, he knew the answer to. I feel like I saw everything in the city, of course the obvious attractions and spots, but he also showed us some really cool and quirky places which were real hidden gems. And how can I forget the food we had?! Lucas took us to the best food spots and I honestly had some of the best street food I've ever had in Vietnam! Thank you so much, we had the best time ever and would highly recommend this tour to everyone :)

A great tour around some of the out of the way areas that you would not find, but also includes Train St. Lucas was a really helpful guide in every way. He was knowledgeable, caring & funny. He was a really lovely young man. My wife & I are both 70 but would recommend this trip for all ages.

The jeep tour to local areas of Hanoi, tasting the local food and egg coffee, knowing the local culture is the best way to explore the beautiful city of Hanoi. Our tour guide Tim was very friendly, knowledgeable who happily welcomed us, answered our questions and guided us. I’ll happily recommend this tour to everyone who want to explore this city

The tour was really good and Andy was the best guide. He told us about the city and seeing it from a bike was a good way to experience the daily life is a person living in Hanoi. Andy told us about some good places to see after the tour and he recommended us some places to eat. He was a very good driver and I felt very safe on the busy streets of Hanoi. A good way to see some of the hidden gems in the city. 10/10 would recommend to anyone visiting Hanoi
