We had a lovely time on this tour. It was really well organised and ran smoothly. Halong bay was beautiful!
The food was also great. We are vegetarians and they catered for us well. We highly recommend this tour!
We loved this private tour!!! Our guide was very informative and funny. This was one of our highlights in Vietnam. Highly recommend!
Amazing host. Guided well, English speaking guide. Food is nice.
We were very pleased with this day trip. The bus had wi-fi and was comfortable for the 3.5 each way journey and included a rest stop. We also required vegetarian meals and the crew provided us ample food and kept asking if we needed more food-I think they were concerned since we did not have fish or meat. We were happy with the meal they provided and were stuffed! all in all-a good day trip from Hanoi!
Our tour guide Cong was very energetic and pleasant to be around, he was funny and very informative. The trip was long, but the view was well worth it in the end. We had a lovely time on the bay. Definitely a good trip to book if you are short of time in Hanoi.
Took the small group tour. Bus was comfortable and quick pick up. The guide, Son, was friendly and took care of everyone and was chatty. Good time to catch up on sleep on the way there and back and there is WiFi on the bus too. Lunch was on the boat, kaya/bamboo boat and cave visit. Excellent!
Highly recommend this tour of Halong Bay Islands and cave tour which highlighted incredible scenery. We even had a mild storm on our way back which added magic to the experience!
The kayaking bit of the tour was the best. Wish we had a full hour. Our tour guide was really good. He had an honest assessment of what's happening on the ground and didn't paint a pretty and fake picture of what life is like in Vietnam. Lunch on the boat was plentiful but a bit bland. But worth it!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The journey to Halong Bay was 3.5 hours, but not too arduous as there is a 30 minute rest stop half way at a shopping complex, selling Vietnamese goods. The coach was reasonably comfortable as long as you don't sit over the rear wheels where legroom is restricted. Our Tour Leader was called Silver English translation of her real name and she was professional and knowledgable. The boat White Tiger was fine and the lunch was reasonable for the price paid. Plenty of photo opportunities among the ubiquitous limestone formations in the Bay. We made two stops, firstly at Dau Go Cave, where we had a relaxing time on a bamboo boat, rowed by a local girl who took us through the cave and into a peaceful lagoon. Secondly we stopped at Thien Cung Cave. The climb to the entrance is around 100 steps up the mountainside, then there are around another 80 steps to leave the cave and another 200 steps to descend to the quayside, so if you are not reasonably fit, you may struggle. The interior of the cave is beautiful, with many interesting rock formations and stalagmites and stalactites to see, enhanced by colourful lighting. Definitely worth the effort to reach it. The cruise then returns to the port, after about 4 hours in total. We arrived back in Hanoi at about 1930, so it is a long, but satisfying day out.
All-around great day trip. Private car pickup at hotel with driver and tour guide. Drive to Halong Bay is long about 4 hours with a short stop for rest and shopping but worth the trip when in Hanoi. After arrival to the boat that would provide the cruise along the bay, feasted on a first class and generous seafood lunch. Enjoyed the kayaking, and the walk through the caves was amazing and special.
Out tour guide Ha is a great guy- extremely friendly, considerate, funny, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We could not have asked for a better guide.
Definitely recommend this trip to Halong Bay if you have a few days to spend in Hanoi

A truly great trip. Halong Bay was spectacular and the cave tour was unbelievable.
pick up time delayed a half hour... but the tour and guide were so.... good! we enjoyed very much. thank you:
This trip was great and we enjoyed every minute of it and Halong Bay's beautiful sights! Even though Halong Bay is quite a long bus ride away from Hanoi, Our tour guide, Ha, made the bus ride go by pretty fast! He was awesome - very informative, knowledgeable, and entertaining. He also spoke the best English out of any of the tour guides that we had the entire two-week stay in Vietnam. Would absolutely recommend this tour!
Fantastic trip. The journey may be little long, but the guide keep us engaged all the time. The view is unforgettable.
Great trip, guide spoke good english. Enjoyed the ride through the countryside. Cave tour was amazing. Very organized tour. Several food choices. Plenty of time to shop.
Everything was great! Our guide was friendly, informative, spoke English very well and even remembered everyone's name after one roll call. The food was good, the pick up and drop off were on-time, and the bus and boat were both quite nice.
This tour was the best. The bus was great. The tour guide Cong was amazing. The seafood banquet was plentysome and lovely! Fantastic value for money.
Excellent !!!! The trip, the cruise, the place, the food, the guide, everything !!!!
Son was an incredible tour guide. His English was very good and he had a wealth of knowledge about Vietnam and Ha Long Bay. He made sure we got to the sites before the rest of the hoards of tourists, but we didn and #39;t feel rushed at all. This was one of my favorite tours in Vietnam!
Our tour bus was late picking us up. A lower cost tour came along which didn't speak English and thought we were with their tour. We were crammed on an old bus. Once they figured out we were not on their tour, they called our proper tour and arranged to meet us at a stop part way. Once we got on our proper tour bus, it was like NIGHT and DAY. The bus was new and clean and the seats were very comfortable. Halong Bay was beautiful and the rest of the day was just as amazing!!
