The Hanoi Explorer tour starts and ends in Hanoi. The Hanoi Explorer is a bicycle tour that takes 1 day taking you through Hanoi, Vietnam and other destinations in Vietnam.

Leave the chaos of Hanoi behind for a day as you cycle through farmlands and villages surrounding the city. On this Hanoi bicycle tour, we cycle on the banks of the Red River on a quiet farm road passing through flower and vegetable gardens, traditional village lanes, and alongside lotus lakes to give you a whole new view of Vietnam’s capital city. You’ll be surprised at how little traffic we’ll encounter as your tour guide brings you to a side of Hanoi that’s well off the beaten path.

We start our Hanoi day tour bright and early! At 8:30 am we take a short transfer from your hotel to our bike garage, hop on our mountain bikes, and head down hidden back alleys to see where the real Hanoi lives. After winding our way through we leave the concrete of the city behind to open farmland along the banks of the Hoang Giang River. We visit a broom making village as we head towards Co Loa, an ancient spiral-shaped citadel that dates back to the third century BC.

After riding around the citadel and a stop at An Duong Vuong King Temple we'll have a break for a local lunch. We next cycle on top of the dike along the Red River, named for the reddish-brown heavily silt-laden water, where we will see where two great rivers meet. We ride along the water’s edge to one of the most important places of worship in Hanoi,Tay Ho temple, and learn the legend of the golden buffalo calf. We’ll pedal on through quiet back streets, admiring the colonial architecture, before transferring you back to your to your hotel around 3 pm.

To make sure we don’t miss an important cultural event, this itinerary may be adjusted if there is a festival or other special activity nearby.
