A friend and I used multiple services offered by vietnambyvespa.com (don’t let the name fool you; they offer more than vespa rides around Hanoi). As a matter of fact, we were fortunate enough to spend 75% of our time in Hanoi with Thao and Ha, the proprietors of vietnambyvespa.com.
Thao and Ha took us on well-organized, customized (on and off the vespa) tours around Hanoi, and Halong Bay. Sure anyone can take you around Hanoi or Halong Bay, but what made vietnambyvespa.com stand out was truly our incredible hosts – their ability to relate, service (flexibility as well as resourcefulness), and insights into local culture (food joints included). While the historic sites of Hanoi and Halong Bay were remarkable, the most memorable aspect of that stay (and what started as a one-off 3 hour city tour) is the friendship.
I highly recommend vietnambyvespa.com
