An excellent tour. My guide was informative and the lunch onboard the boat was superb! I highly recommend this tour.
Great guide very knowledgeable. The trip itself was terrific. Great sites and cruise lots to see.
Really enjoyed our time on this tour, and the drive there wasn't nearly as bad as I expected.

That's what we would call an out of this world natural wonder. Our guide was absolutely brilliant. He paced his presentation throughout the long to and fro journey with an excellent command of the English language. We strongly recommend taking the tour.
Halong Bay is a beautiful natural beauty. Everybody needs to see it once in his/her life.
Our tour guide and driver Sorry! Forgot their names were GREAT!!! I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Halong Bay is beautiful- can't really take a bad photo there :
We didn't have a long time in Hanoi area so going to Halong Bay via bus and returning that same day was perfect! It's fun to see the landscape shift from the city to rural to coast. Our tour guide San was GREAT! Very friendly, knowledgeable, conversant and easy to be around. The boat tour and lunch great food, great scenery. It's a fun stop at the big cave on one of the islands- like some kooky Disney film meets early Star Trek. A bit crowded with boats and people but all part of the experience.
What a fabulous place to visit my tour guide Cuong Tran Dry was awesome. Very knowledgeable. The cruise was lovely and the lunch scumptious. A must do thing for everyone
Excellent tour and tour guide. Thoroughly recommend. It might be easier to have a central pickup and dropoff point to save time for those who get the first and last pickup and drop-off as in our case. This added over an hour and a half to what is already a long trip.
So worth the day trip if you don't have a lot of time. The drive its self is worth it just to experience and observe the countryside, then arriving at Halong Bay is so beautiful. Excellent
Tour itself was great - great tour leader, safe driver, large sized boat to ourselves, beautiful tour of Halong bay. Had lunch on the boat while cruising past the islands which was amazing.
Just note that the drive to Halong Bay is long. Be prepared for a lot of sitting and waiting - bring a book, pillow, and snacks.
Marvellous day only wish I'd done the overnight trip.. The food was amazing the the boat was excellent my husband and I had the boat to ourselves.. Was just over to quickly..
This was great day long tour. You really see and learn a lot without having to spend days in Halong. I really enjoyed the boat ride and the seeing the cave.
My friends and I were the only ones on the trip and we had a good time with our guide San. The visibility was not the best but nonetheless Halong Bay still looks very beautiful.
What an amazing trip. It ending up being a private tour and it didn't rain. Everything was top notch and superb the boat ride, exploring the cave, food, and transportation from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay. The landscape is truly spectacular and stunning. This is a trip not to be missed. I think my guide was either Thanh or Hoang Le ... sorry. Either way, the guide on this trip was accommodating, knowledgeable, professional and super friendly. Had a wonderful time.
The tour was magnificent! If you want to see Halong Bay in one day, this is definitely the tour. Good food and knowledgeable tour guide.
My experience on this tour rates CLEAR AT THE TOP! Every detail was exceptionally dealt with in a professional and warm, friendly manner. Our guide spoke very acceptable English; the Vegetarian cusine was excellent - some of best vegetarian meals I have ever had abroad! I believe my carnivorous friends on board were jealous of my plate:-)) THANK YOU THANK YOU
Great tour, beautiful scenery, extremely relaxing. Tom was the best host/guide we could have asked for. The food was also delicious. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a day trip to the Ha Long Bay.
Pick up on time, long drive but guide was fab. The food was amazing and cruise and views fabulous. All in all a long day but some amazing views and experiences.
If you only have one day to do Halong then this is a great way to do it. Breathtaking scenery! Be prepared for the long 4 hour driving journey there and back.
