A very enjoyable day trip
, Feb 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Halong Bay qnd the caves. Our tour guide was excellent. We enjoyed a great lunch on the cruise boat while viewing the amazing structures in the bay. Being able to enjoy a row boat cruise in a small section of the bay was great.
Walking thru an area of the caves was breathtaking. Really incredible to walk thru the caves and see the magnificent limestone structures. A must to see
Our guide was knowledgable, humorous and took care of us well. The lunch on the boat was so much more than we anticipated-- beautiful, expansive and delicious! And of course, the sites of the Bay-- our guide gave us multiple opportunities to get just the right picture and to take in all the beauty the bay and the cave had to offer. We highly recommend this tour as part of a visit to Vietnam.

Really enjoyed the boat tour. Seafood lunch was lovely and we got so much food! I thought we may have a free drink with lunch but you are charged for all drinks. The kayacking was amazing. The cave is cool but its only small so diesnt take too long to get through. Especially if you dont wish to stay with the tour guide.

Very good except for the mist.
, Jan 2020
All went well tour guide met us at the terminal as arranged.
The trip lasted 4 hours . Only did 10 minutes on bamboo raft trip very disappointing 1* knocked off because of this.
The mist & bit of rain spoilt what would have been a super trip.
Did a day tour of Ha Long Bay with this company yesterday.
The limestone caves were a pleasant surprise, and the karsts were simply amazing. The tour company did a great job ensuring that the travel involved was as smooth as possible, helped in no small measure by Toan, our chirpy and entertaining tour guide. Our only complaint was that the tour bus was a little cramped for the size of our group, but understand that there are limitations and you will be fine.

Very enjoyable day out in the Halong Bay area, nice luxury boat with lovely cocktails and great food (they catered to my vegetarian wife really well). Excellent tour company were really organised and spoke with me on WhatsApp to confirm everything, we were very impressed and booked our airport transfers with them as well. The dive to and from the boat was fine too (I had heard stories that it could be a bit long and uncomfortable) as we took the main toll roads and the quickest routes. The driver also stopped for a toilet stop on the way back which was a nice touch after our drinks on the boat!

Excellent cabin with private balcony, some of the best food I have had in Vietnam. The boat was excellent, not to big so the tour was more private which we loved. Scenery is just mind blowing especially if the sun is out. Would definitely recommend this boat as it still feels private and your not queuing to get to the attractions. Get a balcony suite you won’t be disappointed

Halong Bay is amazing, it certainly lives up to expectations. The cruise was good and the staff were absolutely fantastic, but the food was very average. They try too hard to give you a ‘fine dining experience’. Rather than 6 small luke warm courses they should just give guests some hearty traditional Vietnamese street food, but their cocktails are delicious. There is also ZERO WiFi onboard, but that’s honestly not a bad thing, the spectacular views throughout Halong Bay is worth the price alone.
(Viator do promise that each cabin has a bath/jacuzzi, this is false as I only had a shower in my room)
No need to subject yourself to cramped conditions to fully experience the beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ha Long Bay. Instead, enjoy space and privacy on this overnight cruise around Ha Long Bay and its scenic neighbor La Han Bay. Spend the days swimming at Ba Trai Dao Beach or boating through the Dark and Bright Caves, and at night enjoy some of the many activities on board – or retire to your private cabin with an en suite bathroom and balcony.

Amazing Boat Cruise Experience
, Dec 2019
Ha Long Bay is an amazing place. Lots of boat cruises to choose from. I would highly recommend Cozy Bay for many reasons. The boat staff is amazing. Great Vietnamese food for every meal. The rooms are clean. The boat holds only 22 people so it is an intimate experience. And we had the best tour guide ever, Tim Tam. We are a family of 6 and my kids absolutely loved Tim. So kind and funny and helpful. Thank you to Cozy Bay for making this experience so memorable.

Three stars for mixed performance
, Jan 2020
The Magenta boat and crew was exceptional - very nice and clean ship, engaging activities, and phenomenal food.
The pick-up service was appalling to put it mildly. Arrival to the boat is also much later than advertised, which cuts in materially into time available for day-time activities on what is already a short itinerary.
Take very positive reviews with a pinch to a mountain of salt - I was offered free transport (worth probably ~$10-15) to the airport if and only if I left a positive review. In my experience if you can book the Magenta and avoid the tour operator, you're in business!
I enjoyed this cruise (2 Days, 1 Night) in Lan Ha Bay. The activities and food were as expected, however the boat was not as pictured - it was much smaller than advertised, with no balconies on any of the rooms (and a bit of a “party boat” vibe in the evening - which isn’t what I was expecting).
I had a positive experience overall (the bed was very comfortable, the guide was great), but the accommodations weren’t representative of what I paid.
Ha Long bay was absolutely stunning, a must see and I definitely recommend an overnight stay. Our guide Charlie was awesome. Genuinely loved getting to know people. - total travel time to destination is closer to 4 hrs the freeway is 2 hrs. Also the pictures show more of the 5star cruise

Deluxe Ha Long Bay Day Tour - Alova Premium Cruise
A return to HaLong Bay
, Jan 2020
We visited HaLong Bay 10 years ago on a bright clear sunny day. It was wonderful. This time - whilst we had a lovely relaxing day, the number of boats on the water had escalated and it was very busy out there. The air pollution also detracted from the experience - it was a very hazy day
Even so, the transport was comfortable, the boat was clearly one of the better types available. It was clean, the amenities were clean and the staff both on the boat and the bus were friendly, engaging and helpful.
Unfortunately, the bus was an hour late picking us up. As a result when we arrived on the boat, our food was served immediately, but was still cold.
Overall, we still had a pleasant, relaxing day on the water, and HaLong Bay remains quite a spectacular part of the world.
Within one day to Ha Long Bay with Alova Premium but you have chance to see two nicest places in Ha Long Bay - Surprising Cave and Titov Island that not many cruises can do. Beside that we do have a well-train and friendly crew members together with cruise hygiene, and the best local cruisines surely offer you not only healthy and delicious foods but also a great cruising time!
Overall the tour was very enjoyable if a little rushed due to its short nature. Really enjoyed the ambiance of the boat and the only recommendation I would have would be to inform travelers that a power adapter is required for regular electrical outlets.
Explore Halong Bay on this 2-night, 3-day guided adventure.

MUA CAVE -HOA LU -TAM COC Full Day Including Boat Entrance Fees and Lunch
Great day out from river to mountain top
, Dec 2019
Friendly English speaking tour guide. Airconditioned bus with good food choice at cafeteria style stop. Regular toilet stops. Mua Cave - best experience if you have enough fitness to climb up 400 stairs to top of mountain for spectacular view - or 200 stairs for midway. No rails. I am older but did it slowly with rests and it was OK. Pretty with places to sit below if you can't do steps. Boat ride enjoyable - be prepared to have local boat sellers ask you to buy something. Also for boat drivers to ask for a decent size tip from each passenger before you are dropped off. I did not do bike-ride option, instead had nice time walking in the village and having a 'coconut wine' in an outdoor bar. Very pleasant. This was a good trip to see a lot and do different things.
Discover the highlights of Ninh Binh in just one day on this door-to-door guided tour that covers the ancient capital of Hoa Lu and the karst landscapes of Tam Coc.
