Great tour...the ride is a bit brutal but friendships with other passengers and conversation helps to pass the time. It's about 4-hours each way on the bus after about 1-hour circling the Old Quarter to pickup other passengers can't really be avoided but does add to the time. The boat ride is really great and very enjoyable passing through three tunnels. I was slightly disappointed the it did not look like the picture being advertised with rice fields on both sides, instead it was through what is probably a better landscape of projecting rocks and caves. I can only imagine that rice fields would get old viewing them from the surface.
The bike ride is short and not very spectacular...is a single road with a short walk at the end with not much to see. The adventure is in riding some Vietnam standard bicycles along the road. It would be good to have a bit more time to stop and take more pictures or explore some of the side streets.
Overall a good trip and our guide, Tony, did a great job of engaging everyone.
Quick pick up, small group tour, good lunch, relax boat trip! You will see local woman row boat by her leg. She could not speak English but she is really nice! She invited to buy some embroidery pictures which made by hand. It s cheaper than the things sold at the shop on the way. Tour guide is nice and very caring.
Such a great tour!
The Boat Trip and Bike Trip is awesome . The Food was not up to the mark but the trip is worth it.
Too Many tour people are coming to the same restraunt and suggestion will be to move to another food for lunch or just have a different timing.
Always carry your raincoat or umberlla to that place , even if the Hanoi is sunny .
