We really enjoyed this tour. Even though it was overcast, the seaplane was still an amazing experience and Halong Bay was spectacular. The boat was very comfortable and the staff were extremely helpful. Even the bus trip was great - keep some money for the stop point! Would highly recommend!

Plane ride and pilots were fantastic. Very nice accommodations on the boat, and the food was great. Would have preferred to sail somewhere other than the same places that dozens of other boats went at the same time, but overall a very good experience.

Such an amazing experience! Was great to see Halong Bay from above as well as explore from the water. All staff were welcoming and willing to go over and above to make sure we were happy.

Mediocre way to spend New Years Eve. Sea plane was tiny. Boat was old and motor leaked oil into Ha Long Bay. Bus ride back to Ha Noi was long and poorly coordinated.
