We rode on the lazalee boat, and relative to the other boats I saw in the bay our boat was the newest and cleanest. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, even with the mist it was beyond perfect. Food was good and various and cabins were top notch. Very good choice.
Everything went like clockwork according to the itinerary. The food on the boat was outstanding and there were some very classy touches. Cabin was very comfortable and the shower was piping hot. Weather wasn't ideal in February - very hazy and misty and a bit chilly, but the great organisation more than compensated for the disappointing weather. Very friendly staff and guide. Overall, a great experience.
Had an amazing time at Halong Bay. It is totally breath taking. The junk boat was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. The food was amazing and so much of it. Definately do this again but would do for 3 days instead of just overnight.
We enjoyed the trip a lot. That was a great landscape, really beautiful. When got back from Ha long to Hanoi, i dropped my wallet in the Van. The next day, the Van Driver (Mr. Tuan) brought me back my wallet. For the great service with honesty and hospitality, this tour is truly recommended
We had a fantastic time on the junk boat cruise and highly recommend it to others. The sleeping cabins were delightful, clean and surprisingly spacious. The crew were friendly, helpful and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. The scenery in Halong Bay was beautiful, including the cave tour and the kayaking tour. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam.
The highlight of our trip, tour takes you around halong bay on a fantastically furnished boat. The dinner/lunch was more than anyone could possibly eat and unbelievably tasty (surprising what they cook in a galley these days!!)
Huong, the tour guide, is fantastic and makes your trip as amazing as the surroundings!
Would definitely recommend to others. Service was amazing and along it is only a short time spent in Halong Bay itself due to the 4 hour trip from Hanoi it is still worth it.
There is soooo much food on this boat, you will never go hungry and it was all delicious.
Our tour guide was really lovely and helpful. We visited a cave, climbed to the top of a mountain (ish) and also went kayaking and swimming.
It's a small group as well which is nice.
This was really good. It was a lot better than I expected. Food was great and staff was friendly. Must do and a popular activity in Vietnam from Hanoi. No negative comments about it at all.

Very beautiful and peaceful place that you will forget the city life. And able to get to see all the limestone sites. Will be going back again.
We loved the experience. We were picked up on time in Hanoi, joined by other delightful travelers and transported through the countryside which was beautiful. The crew on board our boat couldn't have been better. Our every need was met before we realized we had it. We were a little disappointed in the condition of the boat but we realized that most of the junks on Halong Bay were in like condition. The tour of the cave was fabulous. The food was delicious and the evening meal was presented as if we were in a 5 star hotel. Cruising back to the dock the next morning was a surreal experience. Don't miss this experience!
The small amount of passengers on board made this cruise great! Halong Bay is such a beautiful part of Vietnam.
We were not sure what to expect from this tour, but were pleasantly surprised. The cabins were lovely and clean. The staff made our trip most enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble. The meals were more than we expected. The food was presented in a way that you felt like you were at a five star restaurant. Not being a boating person, I was concerned about sleeping on the boat, but I shouldn't have worried. I had the most enjoyable sleep ever. I would definitely do this trip again.
We had the best time and met some wonderful people. Our tour guide was great and a lovely friendly man who spoke excellent English and taught us many things about local history and other events. Halong Bay is absolutely beautiful. Our cabin was great and very comfortable with good air conditioning. The food was fantastic, plenty to eat and the drinks were reasonably priced. We had no issues with security and felt completely safe, and even left our valuables in our cabin with peace of mind, even though a safe was available. Our only regret was that we didn't do the two-night cruise.
