This was such a great start to Vietnam and such am amazing place to see. You'll love just cruising around with a drink in your hand just taking it all in and the food is great as well. This tour is a must if you intend to visit Vietnam. This was by far the best thing I did in Vietnam and will be something I remember for a very long time.
Great time with the folks on the cruise. Guide was nice. Food was extravagant but not super Vietnamese. A little pricey, luxury accommodation.
Just loved this...Incredibly well organised and a fantastic place. Halong Bay has the most amazing topography and I cannot think of anywhere else in the world you would see what you see here. I have read previously where it has been dirty but I did not see it. Also, it added to the ambience to have the other cruise junks there at night. I also found the cabinsexcept the bed very comfortable and the shower amazing and the staff and food were wonderful Definitely 5 Star!!
This was by far the swankiest thing I did on my trip to Vietnam and I must say it was worth every penny. Be prepared for a long bus ride and a stop at a ridiculous tourist trap don't buy anything there- you can get it on the street for 1/10th the price, but the cruise was absolutely fantastic. The food was great and the accomodations were spacious, comfortable, and clean. The planned activities were also the perfect amount of time to experience everything but not get bored. Also, the tour guide spoke fantastic English and had a great sense of humor.
It was a great trip. The staff were very accommodating and responsive by phone or by email. They were also able to accomadate our special request which helped us immensely. A great way to see and enjoy the bay with very knowledgable staff and a lovely boat to sleep in. Great food and great activities.
most beautyfull place to see. good stuff.
Zoom was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, hospitable, and spoke English very well. The car ride to Halong Bay is around 4 hours each way. Overall extremely beautiful and awesome experience. I was with a group of 6 people and they accommodated our needs and exceeded our expectations.
The bus was on time when picking us up and the staff were all really nice and helpful. I told them I am vegetarian and they prepared special meal for me. The itinerary was according to the schedule and we had so much fun with kayaking in the cave. The meal was also nice and fresh.
Boat looked pretty tired from the outside and the rooms although pretty simple were comfortable - wasn't quite as deluxe as advertised.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The advertised 3 hour journey from Hanoi is actually 4 hours and unfortunately stops on route at a gift shop.
With the exception of the stunning scenery the highlight of the trip was the amazing food at every meal - lots of variety and choice and all beautifully presented.
Although the onboard wifi exists no-one was able to connect to it.
Went in late January, which meant heavy rain. Despite that, still had a good time cruising around the Bay. Couldn't go Squid Fishing or Tai Chi, but did go kayaking and caving. Food was good and the service is good. Company is responsive to emails and arrangements.
