A group of six of us went on the West Lake Tour, which started in a little Spanish tapas bar & bicycle shop named The Hanoi Bicycle Collective. They assigned two guides to us, Vaness and Binh, who were knowledgeable, attentive and took great care...More

If you can handle the "thrill" of cycling in Hanoi traffic, this is the way to see the city and learn about the culture. The Hanoi Bicycle Collective in the Tay Ho District near West lake provides good bikes and helmets. Four of us did...More

Booked the West Lake tour with my friends. We were cycling along the West Lake with beautiful scene, nice weather and autumn breeze. The tour guide leaded us to those spots by bicycle. We were enjoyed so much. We had local foods for lunch. The...More

I thoroughly enjoyed this cycling adventure and concur with other reviewers that this was an opportunity to see the side of Hanoi not seen by most tourists with a capable and interesting guide. From seeing a closeup of a cemetery to crossing the Long Bien...More

We are fans of city cycle tours...they usually show a different side of the city. We weren't disappointed with Urban Discovery. Despite being a little apprehensive about tackling the crazy city traffic, we were advised to simply be 'a rolling stone in a stream', so...More

A good way to get around and see the real Hanoi. You cover a lot of ground (about 20km) and you become part of the crazy traffic (which just seems to work!). My bike broke down and the guide had it fixed by one of...More
