Dien, our tour guide, picked us up from our hotel at 630am. We were the first of the 10 people in our tour group to be picked up and Dien kept us engaged with some interesting information about Vietnam for about the first half of the 3 hour ride. There isnt a whole lot during the ride in terms of sight-seeing but we got go see some smaller towns, factories, and rice planting along the way. About halfway through the trip we stopped for about 15 minutes for a restroom break. Of course we got the opportunity to purchase some items at the location. There are some pricey art items there from the hundreds to thousands of USD, but if you look around towards the back there are some more reasonably priced items.

On arrival at Halong Bay we had a wonderful lunch and got to try out a variety of Vietnamese dishes. It was late January, a bit chilly with no sunshine, and I needed a light jacket. We were still able to experience the beauty of Halong bay and everyone was awed. The overcast conditions gave it a very majestic feel. We also stopped off at the limestone cave, which I thoroughly enjoyed. After about 3.5 to 4 hours it was time for the return trip.

I feel like the 1 day trip was sufficient and that I had not necessarily missed out on anything. The downside is it is a lot of time spent traveling in a bus. However, I would do this tour again. Thanks to Dien for helping to make this a wonderful trip!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
