  • Review by Michele O'Brien from Melbourne, Australia

    "I just got back from a 4-day trip to Bac Ha, Sapa, and Tu Le. The landscape is stunning with huge glorious mountains that look like something out of the Hobbit, serene deep valleys, beautiful tribal ladies picking tea, and cute kids playing by the side of the road. I mean there is always something amazing to look at. Tu was a safe and skillful driver and also a great guide."

    "What can I say? I have been following Hanoi Easy Rider on Facebook for around 2 years, constantly asking questions, and desperate to have a motorcycle road trip in Vietnam for over 20 years. I have just managed to have my dream come true, with a 6-day trip and it was absolutely wonderful! I left Hanoi with a tour guide and returned with a very good friend."

    "The 1-day city tour was really fun. It is the best way to see and experience the city. The visit to the pottery village was also enjoyable. Hanoi Easy Rider can customize their tour for you. You just need to discuss it with them ahead of time. They are very good and friendly people. Thanks a lot."
