Hanoi. Hanoi Motorbike Tours
One of the most exhilarating ways to tour Hanoi is on the back of a motorbike. The Vespa was first popular in Vietnam during the French colonial period and nowadays Vespa city tours are all the rage, Hanoi being no exception.
We recommend you join us for a Sunset Vespa Tour, which begins at 5 pm and ends at 9:30 pm, to admire the beautiful view of our wonderful Hanoi city when night falls.
Our guide will pick you up at your hotel. You can choose the time to start your tour
First, we cross the Red river by Long bien Bridge (well-known by the old name during the colonial period as Paul Doumer bridge), which was constructed from 1989 to 1902 during French occupation of the country.
More than 100 years with decades of war, Long Bien Bridge was bombed many times by air attacks by American army in 1967, 1972; and many spans of the bridge were destroyed.
The left spans still remaining today remind us of an unforgettable past. The bridge, hence, is not only a traffic construction, a nice architecture, but also a living historical relic. Here you can stop to take pictures of the scenic view from the bridge
Next, you will ride around West Lake - Hanoi’s largest freshwater lake. It is around 17km round and the tour will take you past sights of street vendors, expat cafes, lavish hotels and small local run businesses selling fruit, grilled pork and local vegetables.
You will also have the chance to stop at one of Hanoi’s oldest and most popular pagodas. Tran Quoc pagoda.
Standing at 15 metres, the main pagoda is made up of eleven levels, while its surrounding buildings include an incense burning house and a museum housing historic relics.You can also see intricately carved statues dating to 1639, each of which bear unique facial feature.
Open daily from 07:30 onwards, Tran Quoc Pagoda is free to enter all year long, though it gets packed with devotees during annual festivities such as Tet and Buddha’s Birthday. As it’s a place of worship, visitors are advised to dress conservatively out of respect for the monks and locals.
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Ba Dinh Square is one of the most visited attractions in Hanoi. It is the final resting place of Ho Chi Minh, the most iconic and popular leader of Vietnam, known to his people as ‘Uncle Ho’. His body is preserved here in a glass case at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in central Hanoi (albeit against his wishes).
For visitors, a trip to Uncle Ho’s final resting place can be an extraordinary experience as it is not just an average attraction; it’s a part of a unique history.
The Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, is an intriguing relic of Vietnam’s history and, signifying its historical and cultural importance, was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010. Also known as the Hanoi Citadel, many artefacts and items dating back to between the 6th and 20th centuries were excavated in 2004, including foundations of old palaces, ancient roads, ponds and wells.
On top of these discoveries, archaeologists also found bronze coins, ceramics and pottery from China and many places in Asia, all of which demonstrate a close trading relationship in the area. Visitors should head for the display room that features interesting excavated items and mock-ups of the citadel itself.

Four hours of fun and education and getting to know Hanoi at night. This was a superb trip visiting eateries we wouldn’t know where to find and seeing Hanoi from a totally different perspective. Never been on a motorcycle in my life but that’s not a problem. Guides and drivers were superb and we had 100% confidence in them. This is a must do tour an sit was a blast.
