Great tour...lots of info...Lucus took great care of us! Loved whipping in and out of the crazy traffic!!!

March 2020

Lucas was our tour guide and we had an amazing time. We felt immersed in the culture of Hanoi and saw areas that we would not see without the tour. We felt safe on the bikes and had a great start to our trip on this tour! A must do!

After having tried walking down the old town, touring parts of the city by minibus, using the motorbikes was by far the best experience. The 4h tour was spectacular, with super well chosen stops, from typical restaurant and coffee shops, to the countryside, to the colonial bridge, to the wet mark...

I have to give most credit to my tour guy, Hoang. He is well educated about the area. He took me to amazing places where I would never thought of seeing. I have a great a great time and enjoying every moments. I would recommand this tour to people first time to Hanoi.
