My fiancé and I booked this activity in order to get a locals taste of food and learn about some historical sights on motorbikes!This was a great way to explore our first night in Hanoi, and surprisingly it turned out to be a private tour for us both. Tracy and Maya were our excellent guides. Not only did we try some excellent local foods, they were both very kind and knowledgeable, giving us great information about the culture in Vietnam, and much needed tips for shopping/haggling. We did come in February which is the dry/cooler season, so pack a warm sweater/ coat as it can get a little chilly on the bike (think San Francisco weather 50-60F or 10-16C). Over all 10/10 and I would do it again.
This was an excellent street food tour with our guide Jenny. Interesting, friendly and knowledgeable, Jenny made it fun too and was was happy to answer all our questions. We had bun cha, fried and fresh spring rolls, papaya salad, banh mi & egg coffee. We finished off ourselves with a Hanoi beer on the street. All very clean and tasty and felt we were in safe hands. We did our cyclo tour mid way through and it was fun seeing the old quarter buzzing at night.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had very good English. We were able to try many varieties of street food and learn about the traditional culture and history around them. The puppet show was another great insight into Vietnamese culture, and something very unique we had never experienced before.
I must say the motorbike night tour has been my best experience in Hanoi. It’s a must try itinerary. The tour guides, Tracy and Shelly, are both proficient in English, knowledgeable and professional. Highly commendable. Great job! Simply superb.
Many facts and history about Hanoi combined with yummy food and some hidden spots. You can tell them your needs and they will adapt their route/restaurants e.g. I wanted vegetarian
