Detailed itinerary

6:00 PM - 10:30 PM

At a stylish local cafe, we'll kickstart the adventure with some cocktails and appetizing local snacks. Get the conversations started with fellow travelers and friendly guides, it’ll be a night of chatting and eating your way through Vietnam’s famed capital with these new pals!

Sit back and watch your skillful guides weave through the busy streets of Hanoi towards the railway tracks, and what better way to do this than on a classic Vespa? This narrow street where trains rush past houses a few steps away is a destination in itself, you may want to get your camera ready. We’ll try rice-infused wine and buffalo jerky to keep your appetite up and going.

Next, we’ll hop back on the bikes and head over to a bun cha restaurant. A bowl of bun cha and a plate of nem (spring rolls) are the perfect introduction to Northern Vietnamese food - fresh, savory, and filling. After the bun cha treat, we’ll venture beyond the Old Quarter to taste another local favorite, pho cuon. Stack a few lovely pieces of greens and beef over a silky sheet of pho, roll carefully, and gobble away. Think pho minus the slurping, it’s equally amazing!

For the last stop, we'll drive to the Opera House and wind the day down with good ol’ jazz tunes and traditional Vietnamese music. And if there’s still room in your belly, get yourself a few good beers for the road.

Whether you’re a first time visitor or a Hanoi regular, there’s something to be discovered in this city of elegant charm. Come by and let yourself be surprised!

We LOVED this activity! Our two teenagers loved it even more. Amazing way to experience this wonderful city. Lucy was our guide and she was interesting, fun, connected with our kids, took us to delicious restaurants and was proud of Hanoi.I was really nervous to ride on the Vespas -- Hanoi traffic and its drivers are crazy -- but my guide took great care and started off slowly and made sure I was comfortable with his speed....by the end, we were whizzing through the streets at night and it was spectacular! This is a must do in a city filled with great things to do.

A great way to orientate yourself if you've just arrived in Hanoi. The drivers are very careful and our tour guide Finn was good fun with excellent English. We would never have found the canteen-style restaurants they took us to - all served delicious food included in the price - and we loved seeing the French quarter and Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum lit up at night

The ride for my husband and I on Vespa Adventure around Hanoi was amazing. Our drivers were safe and really enjoyed their job. Our guide was absolutely lovely and the progressive dinner was a great idea. We ate at places where you would not normally go. I loved the whole evening and ending the night at a Jazz Bar was perfect. They took lots of photos for us and posted them to us the next day by email. Service was faultless.
