A Video a Thousand Words...

Twice a day,

We believe in creating experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. And with the Real Hanoi Bicycle Experience that’s exactly what you’ll get. If you are looking for a standard bike ride, which explores Hanoi’s standard sights and experience her standard activities, we recommend that you seek out one of the many companies imitating us.

The Real Hanoi Bicycle Experience is anything but standard. We venture off the well trodden, or in this case cycled, path to show you the Hanoi that even local residents seldom get to see. Join us today and take in all the wonderfully strange sounds, sights, and smells that makes Hanoi an unforgettable experience.

We’d love to tell you more but you’ll just have to join us and discover Hanoi’s magic and the charm for yourself!

A real adventure
It seems impossible to bike around Hanoi and cross the chaotic roads, but the excellent guides of Friends Travel made it possible. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon exploring, because on a bicycle, different than on foot or by car, we could get a view of many different parts of Hanoi and understand the diversity of this thrilling and exciting city. We made interesting stops and also enjoyed some delicious (partly new) foods and drinks along the way. But the best part was cycling along in the ceaseless flow of motorbikes and scooters and cherishing the adventure.
Biking Tour Hanoi
We wanted a local experience and we got it! What an amazing cycling tour we had! You have to dare to bike (just go with the flow) but wow, how we loved discovering the small street with the railways, the Eiffelbridge, the homeless island, the countryside. Nothing but highlights. Non touristic highlights to be more exact. Can recommend it to any adventurous biker. We also did the streetfoodtour, joy for the eyes and the mouth!

A great experience
to explore Hanoi. We didn’t have much time in the city, but because of this biking tour we got the chance to discover the highlights of the city within just one day!
Very interesting
We did a bicycle tour in Hanoi. Very interesting. You see a lot more than you do walking in the city.
Good guide, special places, interesting stories. Bikes were fine

We really enjoyed our trip!
Communication ahead was fast and clear. For us as a family they arranged 2 bikes with soft seats for the children. Our oldest son (almost 10) was perfectly capable of doing the trip on a bike. We normally don’t book a tour because we prefer to explore ourselves, but this tour really is worth it!
Several great tours!
We had an awesome bikingtour and streetfoodtour in Hanoi which i could recommand to everyone! Also they arranged transport to ninh bin Area for an affordable price. We did an expensive cruise with them to halong bay. They found a cruise that suited our needs but in the end we did not like halong bay that much and found out we are not cruising people. O & they also arranged visa for us. We were really happy with them!

Great tour!
You have a chance to explore another piece of Hanoi with a passionate tour guide who will tell you stories behind each destination you’ll visit. We stopped for some snacks on the way and they’re delicious!
Good job and keep it up!
