Everything about the junk boat was amazing.
Fantastic food and service. The kayaking was a lovely experience and so was watching the sunset on the deck.
Not a fan of sharing room with a few cockroaches but guess bugs are to be expected on a junk boat!
Long journey to get there though.

Halong Bay is beautiful. Yes there are a lot of tourists and tourist boats but the area is so beautiful that everyone deserves the opportunity to see it. The cabin was spacious and very comfortable. We were lucky that the weather was perfect. The boat was not large so it gave us the opportunity to get to know some of the other tourists. The staff on the boat were excellent and a lot of fun. Visiting Halong Bay is one of our best travel experiences. Kayaking on the bay was hard work but has given us great memories.

This tour was the highlight of our Vietnam trip and we thorouly recommend it. Our guide Hui was lovely and such a great host and the food was simply amazing and plentiful. A great relaxing way to spend a couple of days amongst the beautiful scenery.

We booked this tour during the off season and were thus the only couple on the cruise. The crew were very attentive and the food was fantastic. Our guide was great and did a great job of informing us and answering all our questions. Being the only couple on board, we truly felt like we were living in the lap of luxury! The crew accomodated my husband's wishes to swim off the boat with him and I'm glad they did because he ended up getting stung by a jellyfish and they were right there with him. It was obvious the crew was very professional and upon comparing stories with other couples, I'm glad we booked through Viator. And it was always evident in the condition of the boats.

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.
