Know More about this tour

When visiting Hanoi, you won't want to miss Halong Bay, where a lot more than the famous limestone island formations await you.

After pick-up at your hotel in Old Quater at 08 am, the bus ride through the Red River Delta is a great opportunity to see what daily life is like for Vietnamese farmers. Rice fields and water buffalo flank both sides of the road. The most interesting glimpses into rural life come during February and June, when whole families are busy transplanting the young rice plants to the growing fields.

Arrive in Halong City tourist wharf around 12:00. Here you'll board a Traditional Wooden Junk and head into the bay. A fresh seafood lunch (Vegetarian available if requested) is served on the way out.

The limestone bedrock and sheer cliffs of the countless islets have inspired local people to come up with equally fanciful names: Stone Dogs Island, Duck Island, Finger Island, Incense Burner Island, and Fighting Cocks Island, the symbol of Halong Bay.

You will then head on to Thien Cung (Heavenly Palace Grotto), a magnificent and otherworldly caves. Explore their huge chambers adorned with stalactites and stalagmites of all kinds.

Finally, enjoy 45-minutes of Kayaking or Bamboo boat around the islands and water tunnels and bask in the charm of this natural paradise.

Around 4:30 pm you will be brought back to the Halong tourist wharf, where your vehicle is waiting to take you back to Hanoi.
The trip ends at your hotel around 08 pm.

  • We had a lovely time on this tour. It was really well organised and ran smoothly. Halong bay was beautiful!
    The food was also great. We are vegetarians and they catered for us well. We highly recommend this tour!

  • The caves were phenomenal! Great experience! As advertised!

  • The only thing is the long trip by bus, not fault of the agency. But maybe they could change the half-way stop: instead of the touristic bus stop, a break in a local village to visit rice fields and have some real vietnamese food would be the icing on the cake

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We loved this private tour!!! Our guide was very informative and funny. This was one of our highlights in Vietnam. Highly recommend!

  • Really good tour! Tour guide was lovely, really enjoyed cruising around the bay on the boat and walking through the caves. The provided lunch could be improved.

  • Amazing host. Guided well, English speaking guide. Food is nice.

  • Great guide, good trip. I would do an overnight if possible to see a bit more of the bay.Food was okay on day trip but not amazing.

  • Drive back n forth from Hanoi to Halong Bay was 8 hours stretch, which was too tiring. Lunch provided on the boat was not good at all. Wouldn't recommend
