The arrangement was good. Picked up on time, the tour guide Chris was professional and speaks good English. Car and cruise were clean and not old.

A day to see Halong Bay is not enough, and this tour only scratches the surface. That being said, if you only have a day, this tour is worth it. It's a 3-hour trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay, and given the limited time left in the day, it's good that this tour only goes to the main sights. Other tours may cover more ground, but they'll leave you depleted by the end of the day. The pace of this tour was just right for a one day excursion.

Nice day trip to Halong Bay with Vietnam OpenTour. Our guide Sofie was very enthusiastic, and her smile was contagious. Sadly, the drive to the bay from Hanoi is about 3.5 hours plus a 30 minute rest stop, so it's a lot of driving in one day. At Halong Bay, you'll receive a mediocre lunch, will have the option of kayaking or riding in a bamboo boat operated by locals, and will tour a really cool cave. We spent about 4 hours in Halong Bay, which didn't feel like long enough, so personally I felt like I would've enjoyed an overnight tour more.


4 star rating: Recommended January 2016

A pleasant day trip. Extremely cold and wet, however, this did not detract from cruising Halong Bay - it almost gave the tour a mysterious feel. Bus had no heating and was extremely cold for the four hour drive each way. I would still recommend this trip despite the cold/wet weather conditions.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this November 2016

Transportation provided for this tour was horrible, many seats had the legroom abbreviated with wheel wheels leaving for an extremely uncomfortable 3 1/2 hr drive. Do not book the tour with this company, the price Is the same but the quality of transport is very substandard compared to other tour companies charging the same.
