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.

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.

Excellent - a long day trip but well worth it. I would recommend if you have time to stay over but if you only have one day this is the perfect one day trip to see Halong Bay. It was beautiful and stunning, really amazing.

The tour guide was fabulous - for a Vietnamese his English is incredibly fluent and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was also very patient with everyone - whenever we requested a photo he would happily take it for us and his photo-taking skill was great! We did many jumping shots at Halong Bay. I also like that the tour was small in number.

This was a great trip. A long day (about 8 of the 12 hours spent traveling) but worth it if you don't want to stay overnight. Although the day was cloudy, the closer we got to the rocky formations, the clearer they were so I was able to get some good photos. Lunch was sufficient and the caves were worth seeing. It was a shame that the merchandise at the handicrafts centre was so expensive. A purse I bought around the corner of the hotel was 5 times more expensive at the centre. Our guide San was terrific and had excellent English.

Excellent day trip if a little bit tiring (4 hours from Hanoi) but time spent on the boat more than made up for the long journey.

We absolutely loved our tour and Thanh was a witty and well-informed guide! He was amazing and enhanced our tour with his very funny quips and good nature. We enjoyed other tour members and the lunch on board was delicious! We would highly recommend this tour... could not have been more pleased! Thank you! We will definitely book through Viator again!

This trip was an amazing experience for me and my daughter. The small group made it more personal and everyone on the trip shared an amazing experience. The food on board the boat was excellent and the rew could not have been nicer. Our tour guide did an amazing job. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone. I have made some new friends as a result and found Halong Bay to be mystical and magical.

Although it was a long drive to get there for a day trip, it was beautiful once we got there! The road is being widened and re paved so it should make for a better journey in the future!
