Good guide, good service, lovely place.

This was first of all a dream come true, and it couldn't have been better!!! Small Hanoi groups was amazing!! very convenient and super nice. I would give a 10 out of 10!!!
This was definitely one of the best highlights of our trip to Vietnam with only three nights in Hanoi. The views of Halong Bay are overawing. Our tour guide, Cong, was very insightful, funny, patient and went above and beyond to make the trip an enjoyable one. Lunch was fresh and delicious we feasted on prawns, salt and pepper pork, marinated fish fillets, squid salad and vege spring rolls. We felt safe and comfortable during the entire journey. The minibus and cruise boat were clean and well maintained. Make sure you include it in your itinerary for Hanoi - you won't regret it!
Amazing experience to sail around Halong Bay and see this unique part of the world. Tour guide, Mr. San, was very friendly and knowledgeable and able to answer all questions. He also took a lot of pics for the tour members He really made the trip more enjoyable! The seafood lunch served on board the boat was actually delicious with many more options that you would expect. The excursion off the boat into the caves was unexpectedly awesome. Be aware that the day trip takes a full day- traffic can be heavy and very slow there and back- return trip took about 5 hours but the trip was worth it. The bus is modern, air-conditioned and very comfortable and it offered wifi ! There is a stop on the way there and the way back for a potty break and a chance to purchase local crafts. I'd recommend this trip and try to ask for Mr San.
Our tour guide Ahn was brilliant. Energetic and informative. Full knowledge of everything and made it nicer as we weren't just taught about the sights but got so much info in general about Vietnam and the culture. She was very attentive and caring and made sure we had the best experience. A wonderful guide who made the experience all the more better. Halong bay tour was great, visit to cave, boat ride and boat lunch were included. As I didn't eat meat Ahn made sure the chef made me something else so I didn't go hungry, always thoughtful : an enjoyable day, I would do it again. Thank you
Amazing day our with a hugely knowledgeable guide Anh for whom nothing was too much trouble. It's quite a long ride but the bus was reasonably comfortable and it's a good chance to watch the countryside go by. The bay itself is spectacular and the boat was large, comfortable and uncrowded. Highly recommended.
Great tour. Great people. Great service. I'm vegetarian/vegan and from experience, I was expecting either no vegetarian options or poor ones. They outdid themselves, and put out a vegan feast I had to share with my tour mates, it was too much and as delicious as any good restaurant. Very pleased with the experience. Highly recommended. If you have any special food preferences, make sure you tell them in advance.
Would highly recommend this trip to anybody staying in Hanoi and wanting to squeeze in Halong Bay for the day. Don't let the 3 hour coach trip put you off - the time goes by very quickly in the air conditioned van and the beautiful Vietnam scenery passing by the window.
The boat trip itself was perfect with a great lunch and plenty of photo opportunities of the bay as well as the visit to the spectacular cave!
Many thanks to our fantastic tour guide Ching who was friendly, enthusiastic, provided us with a lot of interesting information along the way and all in all looked after us well. The small tour group size ours was a group of 6 also made it even more special.
Excellent tour, really could have done the 2 day as it is a long day to see Halong in one day. Despite this the tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable. Would recommend highly.
