Cyclo Tour in Hanoi
By Hanoi Local Guide
Our hotel helped us to arrange for 2 cyclo drivers (one for each of us) to give us a tour of Hanoi. Based on their recommendation, we went to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the One Pillar Pagoda, the Temple of Literature, the Hanoi Hilton and around the Old Town.
We did not have to deal with them trying to take us to any shops where they knew we could get a "deal". They were very helpful and polite. They waited for us patiently as we toured each of the stops. It was an adventure in itself to experience life in the middle of the scooter traffic.
The cost was US$2 per person per hour, and we also gave an additional tip for the good service. It was a great deal and a great way to experience Hanoi.
Our tour was arranged through the Sofitel Metropole Hotel, which has their own group of cyclo drivers waiting outside at all times. However, I am sure you could arrange a similar tour with cyclo drivers on the street - they will offer you a ride wherever you go.
