Drive was long, but once on the boat, awesome views for 5 hours. The weather was perfect for a day in the bay. Food was very good, a lot of it. Our guide was friendly and very informative and patient. A must do trip when in Vietnam.

Definitely worth the trip. This one is all well organized with a knowledgeable guide with good English - pickup from hotel worked smoothly and everything taken care of for us. We were well looked after on the boat too and lots of good food provided.

Ngoc our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic throughout the trip. Halong Bay is incredible and the cave tour out of this world. The lunch on the boat was delicious. My only downside was the mini bus driver who thought he was in death race.

The perfect day trip to Halong Bay. We had limited time in Northern Vietnam and this was on our must see list. We had beautiful weather and the bay is breathtaking. It is a drive to get out there and back, but the van stops at a rest stop for about 30 minutes on each way there you can buy snacks, use restrooms, and they have some shopping available. It is a big area where all the other tour buses stop on their way out to Halong Bay. Our guide was very kind and imformative it's a very busy area so pay attention to your guide on where to meet and keep up with the group :

Extremely enjoyable Halong bay tour!
I never regret to book this tour via Viator, it just 44 usd per person. It s included: pick up, drop off at hotel in Old Quarter luckily my hotel located at pick up area, it s very convenience, bus, ticket, lunch, kayaking, cave.
It take quite long time to pick up, around 45 mintues I think, but it's not their fault, traffic is terrible! Reached Halong bay at 12 noon. Quick check in. Then we have lunch with plenty of seafood. Soooo tasty! We did kayak through water cave at floating village. Do not miss it! Then we visited Tien Cung cave named Heavenly. Tour guide told us a lots of historical stories and a lot of joke.
Our guide Mr Ngoc is a nice person. He is really helpful, informative and very hilarious. He took care of our group really well. Thank you Ngoc for making our trip such wonderful.
This is such enjoyable trip. Highly recommend!

I'm very pleased with the trip. Bus was comfortable and quick pick up although it took almost 4 hours on bus for each way. Bus stopped at middle way for rest room. Tour guide is friendly and caring everyone. Lunch on boat was great with plenty of seafood. I love the way the operator let me choose to do bamboo boat or kayaking at there. The cave was stunning with colorful light. Definitely recommend!

Driver picked us up on time, comfortable van, informative English speaking tour guide, plenty of food at the boat, instructions for traveler was solid and clear. Snack can be helpful specially in the afternoon and additional water all through out the trip. Unless this was specified in the tour description, we would have brought snacks and extra water, no problem.
