The whole trip was above expectations. Transfer bus easy and comfortable with aircon. Boat, aircon cabin, food and service all above expectations and delivered with a good atmosphere. The scenery is amazing.
Jimmy is amazing, I woke up at 3am to stare into the dark abyss and it was awesome! I loved the boat sounds and the views.
Well organised tour. Plenty of activities on the bay.
No WiFi on the boat.
A lovely tour through Halong bay, which is good value for money at a really spectacular location.

A very good overnight cruise on Halong Bay.
Accommodations were good, food was excellent, all employees were very friendly and helpful, visiting the floating fishing village, the cave and anchor spot for the night were all outstanding - They know what they are doing...
I will go again.
Only Neg - Speakers were not on the cruise ship, no local music or Karaoke. I was told speakers were damaged a couple days prior and would be repaired and returned in a couple days. SO, if not there now, thats a problem.
An absolutely wonderful experience! Aside from the natural beauty of the area, the food on our trip with exceptional, our guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and humble, and the cruise was as relaxing as possible.
It was a little foggy on our trip, but it is a beautiful area. The caves were a little congested, as expected since this is a prime tourist area, but it was well worth the visit.
The staff were very friendly, boat was clean and rooms large and pleasant. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The scenery was amazing. We kayaked for a while. The caves were a must and the climb to the top of Ti Top also well worth it for the view.
Really enjoyed everything about this trip. The food was amazing and plentiful. All activities were great, enjoyed the kayaking, visiting the beach and going to the cave. All staff were very helpful and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area. Was a bit of a drive to Halong bay from Hanoi but worth it.
We had such a gorgeous time at Halong Bay. Would highly recommend this trip to everyone.
The tour was so organized and efficient. From the pick-up at our Hanoi hotel, to the transport to Halong Bay, to the activities, food and drink absolutely delicious and the staff so accommodating, friendly and knowledgable, I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Very pleased and even wrote about it on my personal blog site.
If you are planning to do the Halong Bay cruise, I highly recommend this Overnight Cruise. The itinerary was excellent, well planned and you'll get to see as much of Halong Bay as you wanted. The crew were nice, well trained and professional. the Boat is not new but the rooms are well kept and clean. The food on board the cruise was excellent too! activities includes kayaking, trekking the caves, making your own rice paper roll, massage optional and Tai Chi class in the morning. If the weather is good, you'll get to see beautiful sunset and sunrise. Don't forget to bring along your swimming costume/trunk, sunblock, zip lock bag to protect your camera/phone during kayaking and shoes for trekking up the cave. value for money and highly recommended.
A phenomenal expirence. The overnight cruise is just the right amount of time to enjoy everything. A must if you have more than 3 days in Hanoi.
Fantastic food, great tour guide who was pleasant and funny but also informative. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was great, huge shower with hot water. I really enjoyed the activities of visiting the caves and the kayaking. if anything I would have loved to do more kayaking as I found it very relaxing and enjoyable. Overall it was a great experience that I would recommend to friends and family who traveled to the area.
It almost started with a disaster as we never got any email from the tour company to confirm where the pick-up point would be, especially we arrived in Hanoi on Sunday late afternoon and the tour was the following day. Luckily a receptionist at our hotel made the call to a specific person whom on duty on Sunday and arranged the pic-up at our hotel lobby. The tour itself was great and on time with the itinerary schedules. With a small group of people we enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Halong Bay. A trip of a lifetime to take for everyone who comes to visit Hanoi Vietnam.
Excellent experience overall: attentive and competent staff, interesting itinerary, very good food.
Our best memories from Vietnam are on this boat, sailing in the Ha-Long bay. Beautiful boat, friendly and helpful staff, nice guide speaking good english, delicious food,... And everything in the middle of the amazing Ha-Long bay. Must go place in the world.
Everything about this was Excellent. I strongly recommend this tour!
Good cabin though I wished that they had shower curtains as the whole bathroom became messy after a shower. Good food but bad waiter as we could not tell him what we wanted due to the fact that he did not know English. Good scenery but debris floating in the bay spoils it all. There is therefore much to be improved on but nevertheless a good place to visit.
This was a lovely trip - mostly because of the scenery and the beauty of Halong Bay and the staff on the boat were very friendly and kind. The times we spent on the boat - enjoying the scenery, getting to know fellow travelers, etc were wonderful. The off the boat tours weren't great. The Cave and the swimming beach were so crowded with other tourists from other boats, it made the experience of those aspects not enjoyable. The cave was beautiful and quite spectacular, but way too many people being herded through at once. One the boat, the staff were wonderful, the food was decent. I do think one should not have to pay for water - or have free water at meals...this was a negative aspect. The room was really nice, but smelled like a toilet....so that was not great. I don't know if that is just part of being on the ship, or if that is avoidable and there is something wrong with the plumbing. All in all, a lovely trip despite crowds and smelly rooms.
Me and my partner went on this trip at the beginning of February. Apart from the weather still being a bit chilly we can't fault it. The boat was clean and spacious, the staff were attentive and the activities were exactly what we imagined. The food was exceptional and presented brilliantly, I have never seen cucumber, carrots and spring onions served as a bunch of flowers before. Halong Bay is absolutely beautiful and we would highly recommend this trip.
The cruise was lovely. It was very busy and filled with activities but there was an option not to partake as well. The ship is okay, the rooms are rather small but clean. Our guide Hai was absolutely fantastic and very entertaining. I think it is good value for money to go see Ha Long Bay for real. There was plenty of good food, though it was a bit trickier for a vegetarian.
Lovely small ship with character. Very friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful area, will worth doing this trip
The boat was definitely not the one pictured, but also wasn't the worst looking one in the harbor either. Everything on the tour was nice but the flexible schedule often meant that we weren't exactly sure when or where we were going, making it hard to decide how you may want to pass your time. The fishing village was underwhelming but I highly recommend the Surprising Cave. The drinks were not as expensive as described in other reviews, with beers being less than 2 USD and cocktails being significantly more. They also had a corking fee if you brought your own wine or liquor. One thing that we weren't prepared for was the driving distance to and from Halong Bay and Hanoi. It was about 4 hours each way and not exactly what we were looking for after being on a plane for 20-something hours the previous day.
