Cruises are a popular tourist pastime in Ha Long Bay, but it can be hard to experience the full range of the Bay, from its intimidating karst pillars to its hidden caves, without tying yourself to a large group on a crowded junk. Avoid all of that on this private day tour. Spend the day cruising around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, sunbathing and enjoying the majestic views. Stop along the way at the Thien Cung Cave, full of otherworldly stalagmite and stalactite formations.
Marvel at the cavernous Dau Go Grotto, a short distance from Thien Cung
Take the opportunity to go kayaking in the Bay and experience it a different way
Lunch is provided during the cruise at no extra cost
Whether you’re flying into Hanoi that day or staying there, hotel and airport transfers are included
EPIC FAIL on request for English speaking guide. Picked up by a driver unable to even relay his name. Nice man, but with NO communication skill. Thought perhaps we were first going to a transfer point to meet the real guide. Instead felt captured for a three-hour car ride that made two stops at tourist trap places. Upon arrival at Halong, we were finally met by an English speaking boat host who quickly made clear he had no relationship to either Viator or HHT. Sightseeing still was interesting on a very overcast day. However, not at all like serene postcard scenes due to swarms of boats and tourists at every location. Viator arrangement was extremely disappointing compared to prior experiences. Should at least have sent a driver with some printed explanation of what and where we were going and stopping during the day.
