“Great to see the Real Urban Hanoi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

This is a great way to know the REAL URBAN HANOI. Bicycle is the way to go. Fast enough to see more and slow enough to enjoy every corner. I enjoyed seeing were the Hanoians live and work, the markets, the narrow passages and sharing the street with motorbikes in old quarters . I highly recommend it.

“Be part of the Hanoi traffic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

It's great to be a part of the crazy traffic of Hanoi, especially with 2 local guides looking after you. My guides, Ha and Tu, were very patient with me and answered the list of questions I have. They were young college students, and their energy was infectious, which you would definitely need under the Hanoi heat. I would definitely try their other route when I come back to Hanoi.

“Must do in Hanoi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Highly recommended! When lived in Hanoi for three years, I recommended this trip to pretty much every friends and family members who visited me. And they all loved it. Literally all of them young and old, men and women. Hanoi traffic seems terrible from outside, but with trained guide and well selected route, you may find that bicycle is the best way to discover Hanoi.

“Cycling in Hanoi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

This was a really fantastic trip "off the beaten track" of Hanoi. Duyet our guide was great and we all had a great timetogether. We were a group of 4, we tasted things we'd never eaten before, met some people along the way and the only thing we regretted was that it ended!! Bravo for this experience! It is definitely a must for visiting Hanoi!

“Daring and wonderful way to get to know Hanoi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

In March 2011, we took a cycling tour of Hanoi with Urban Discovery and it was an amazing adventure! We visited the outskirts of the city off the tourist path. We enjoyed a lunch served by Buddhist nuns and joined the citizens of Hanoi on their thrilling and sometimes scary commutes through the busy streets of the city. A highlight of our trip!
