Met our expectation completely. The guide, Tuan, was extremely nice and helpful with very good English, sharing interesting details about Vietnam and Halong Bay on every possible occasion. Ask for Tuan as the guid if you can!
pick up is on time. since the distance from Hanoi to halong is 182 Km, expect long hours on the road than on the bay. the van is comfortable with ample leg space, not crowded.
Guide is very knowledgeable and friendly.
No problems encountered during the tour.
This is a must do Tour in Hanoi. The tour was well organised, we drived about 2.5hours and stopped for toilet break then continued our journey to Halong Bay, we then spent around 3 hours on the cruise includin hiking to 2 caves. Our tour guide Lucky From Urban Adv was so nice and friendly, he shared with us lot of infomartion pertians to the Halong Bay. The lunch on the boat was really nice too: Despite the long driving hours, it is still worth the trip to Halong Bay and this one day trip will give you the highlight of the Halong Bay if you do not have more days to spend. Btw, it is important to booked a smalled group tour as the traffic in Old Quarter was so bad and the pick up during the morning may take very long, as such if you dun want to spend 1 hour sit on the coach and circle around the Old Quarter, choose a small group tour.
We had a great time on this tour despite being a little unlucky with the weather (it was still way worth it). The scenery is incredible and the tour team (driver, our guide Lucky and the boat crew) were awesome. Lunch was really tasty and the boat was spacious. Awesome tour - highly recommended!
Great tour if you want to include Halong Bay on a tight schedule. Sure the drive is long but it goes by quickly and there is a a stop off to stretch your legs there and back . Food on the boat was probably one of the best Vietnamese meals we had on our trip! Nice tour of the caves and great guide!
Beautify Halong Bay cruise. Good seafood lunch.
Worth the 4 hours drive each way.
Can't say enough good things about our guide Lee for this. He did an amazing job of keeping us entertained during the long car ride and was very knowledgable about the Vietnamese countryside as well as Halong Bay itself. Pickup was prompt and drop off back to our hotel was smooth. Halong Bay itself was a little cloudy the day we were there, but the company and the lunch made it something i would highly recommend!
This tour was fantastic, our guide Cuong was great. Food was a lot and only had 5 of us and a boat all to us.
one of the best tours. The food is great and fresh fish and vegies delivered to the boat so freshly cooked. The area is awesome and the trip so entertaining, they provide internet service on the bus for free so you can upload your pictures right then. They also stop on many places where you can learn about silk and other craft. Silk good and reasonable price bought 2 pieces and still very good condition. Would like to go back.
It is a long drive as everyone knows but our driver was expert in negotiating the roads. We were on a good quality bus with only a total of 4 passengers other than driver and guide. Quite a comfortable trip. The boat was able to take about 50 and it was just us! Nice lunch, quality much better than we have commonly experienced on such tours. The Halong Bay experience was marvellous. Despite it being only 2 1/2 hours we got a great taste of the place. Highly recommend this particular tour.
This was a highlight of our two week trip to Vietnam. The scenery was beautiful. The drive was a bit long, but given that we wanted to do this in a single day, it was more than acceptable. Chyen was a great guide.

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.
