"Amazing experience with local guides"

My friend and I had absolutely brilliant experience with BestTravel, we did couple of tours and I believe we will do couple more.

To me there is no better way to see how a city functions, and to sink in to its pace of life. We only had half a day in Hanoi and this was an amazing way to see the sites.

The mopeds were extremely well driven by two articulate funny girls who were more than engaging in conversation.

A truly fantastic… More

“Wow. What a blast!”
Just back from 4 hour scooter tour with Nhung. She was a fantastic guide and tool me all over hanoi to see all the major sites and we stopped for 3 or 4 great food stops. Can't recommend the tour highly enough. Traffic hair raising but Nhung was a very safe driver

I have to say after having been driven around the city in cars on other tours and seeing the traffic I was nervous at first about being on a motorbike but I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Do not worry about being on a motorbike.

It is without a doubt the BEST way to see the city!
