Hi friends! My name is Sang and I invite you to join me on a wonderful bike tour through Hanoi. I'll take you for a spin and show you Hanoi like you otherwise never experience! We will approximately cover 10 km or 6 miles and visit some of Hanoi's most iconic and inspiring locations. The tour is safe and for all fitness levels! I am passionate about sports, culture, and anything out of the ordinary, whether it be people, things, or concepts. In my free time, I enjoy taking my road bike to explore the greater Hanoi area. I have lived and worked in Hanoi as a local tour guide and storyteller for as long as I can remember. I can't wait to share my passion for Hanoi and my love for cycling with you! Hop on and join the ride

Really enjoyed taking this tour. Learning about a culturally Rich place like Hanoi from a local while experiencing the old city by cycle is a great way to spend 3 hours in Hanoi. Highly recommended. And do no worry about cycling through the busy streets of Hanoi - it seems more difficult from the outside.

Ho apprezzato molto poter vedere un angolo diverso della città, molto meno turistico e lontano dal caos. L'esperienza nel traffico è stata davvero divertente! Basta seguire il flusso!
