Excellent... exactly as advertised, a bit hot (but expected this time of year), plenty of stops if/when needed, definitely got to "see" another side of Hanoi. Highly recommend a bike tour!
Loved the experience of our day tour into the countryside. Saw a good slice of varied picturesque sights which we would not have had the opportunity to see otherwise. The bike ride was fantastic through back streets of small villages, beside rice paddies and Sandstone casts.
Wonderful experience. We wished it would have lasted longer. The countryside was incredibly beautiful. The guide was fluent in English and explained as we cycled. The boating trip was more than we thought it would be. This excursion exceeded our expectations.
This was one of the best tours we took. We had a great guide who took us biking on a beautiful area and then we took a nice trip on a row boat. Amazing experience and great photo opportunities.
Very nice...but the cycling rout was not very scenic. The boat ride was lovely. The lunch served was terrible. i only ate a couple of bananas.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour-- seeing Halong Bay on land! I ended up being the only one on the tour so I had my own personal driver and tour guide for the day! The guide was very informative! the scenery were all beautiful! The story behind the two temples was fascinating! The buffet lunch was sumptuous! The highlight was the boat ride along Tam Coc and it was so fascinating to see how the locals maneuver the river using their FEET! Do not be put off by attempts to sell you things whilst you are on the boat ride including taking your photo ...just say no and enjoy the ride and savour the beautiful scenery including passing through three caves!!!
A good day out, the guide was very friendly and helpful and the scenery was beautiful. The bikes do not have brakes and there are no safety helmets so if you are safety conscious - bring your own! The boat is wonderful, so peaceful and gorgeous scenery but be prepared to be trapped in a boat by a flotilla of floating salespeople who convince you to buy drinks and food for your guide and also some embroidery before you are allowed to go back. A great tour, but I would have preferred to pay a little extra to avoid the hard sales pitch or be forewarned about it.
The boat trip was nice and relaxing, and the scenary was great. Just remember to bring a hat and sunscreen on a hot day - we all got burnt during the 2 hour boat trip.
The bike tour however could have been done better. Whilst we had some very nice scenaries during the trip, there was rarely an opportunity to stop and take photos. You'd think that a "leisurely ride" would allow you to take photos.
the boat trip was nice. But the bike ride was disappointing. Bikes were old and not in good condition. Better to do without it and make it cheaper.
nice views but everything else was really bad. On the boat trip we had to give them money, he stoped before returning to land and just wanted money, we gave them, they still wanted more, not okey!! the buffet was a joke, i got food posioned, brakes on bikes didnt work, not recomending to anyone! BAD
