Tour Info

This is a wonderful loop that takes you first to some of the most popular tourist villages and national parks around Hanoi and then off to much less known areas that see very few foreigners. The riding is not difficult and there is plenty of time for photos and taking in the views. Comfort levels do drop a little as the tour progresses due to the simplicity of the quieter places we visit, but that is a welcome trade off.

(This map’s just to give you an idea: your tour guide will take you on all sorts of roads you can’t find on the map!)
