Although a long dive, the stops on the way were most welcome and a surprise to see all the crafts by hanicapped people. The Bay was a realy eye opener and very atmsopheric. . The visit to the caves and fish farm was terrific. Lunch on board the boat was a real treat. A trip not to be missed
Top notch, excellent guide. Bus getting there was spacious. Food on the boat was also good. I couldn't recommend Indochina tours enough.
It was great wish it was longer.Great team every one of them .

It was kinda long drive but the beauty and serenity of Halong Bay is amazing. The cave we went into was breathtaking. My wife and I really enjoyed and given the chance to go back we'll stay over a night or two. Thanks to our guide.
This was a fantastic day! The drive from Hanoi takes about 3 hours but it is a good way to see the smaller towns and courtyside. In total, the day was about 10 hours. The boat was clean and had everything we needed on board including lounge chairs on the top to relax and take in the view. Lunch was fantastic with lots of variety and yummy food. I would recommend this trip as a good day trip for anyone not wanting to stay overnight in Halong Bay.
Amazing! Very friendly tour guide, highly recommeded to use VIATOR!
Wonderful day, absolutely beautiful and the tour guide was excellent.
We were picked up promptly from our hotel and driven approx. 3 hours to Halong Bay with a stop half way, going and coming back. The guide spoke excellent english and had a good sense of humour. She took us onto our junk which we had to ourselves and for the next 3 hours we sailed around the islands. We also had lunch on-board which was included and it was cooked fresh and dish after dish kept coming to the table. We were full afterwards and enjoyed the scenery for the rest of the cruise.
I would have loved for it to be longer, but for a one day trip it was an amazing experience and made me want to come back for more. The boat and staff were very nice, and the guide very friendly and informative. The driver was very nice about stopping for photo ops!
This trip met all of my expectations. Read some complaints of length of time spent on the road traveling to/from Hanoi, but I enjoy seeing life outside of main cities on trips that I take. Boat portion of the trip itself was very pleasant. There were 8 other people in my group, so you got to know everyone on the trip. Sights were terrific, and the food was excellent, with sufficient quantities for all. Since I had only enough time for a one day side trip to Halong Bay this trip was perfect.
A long drive to and from the city but getting to see and tour Halong Bay was worth the while. Exploring inside one of the limestone mountains was a very good experience, but be prepared to climb a lot of steps along with the walk back down.
Loved Halong Bay and the cruise. Wonderful adventure and a nice group of people. The van ride to and from the bay was long and the van not that comfortable for an 8 hour round trip.
