    Excellent tour - tour guide was wonderful- breathtaking scenery - one of the most beautiful and surreal places I have been. Day was overcast and it didn’t matter, it was still breathtaking. Go!

  • 23-Nov-2022

    Everything was according to our expectations . Robert is very friendly and the driver very safe. Recommend

  • 20-Nov-2022

    Our tour guide was friendly, supportive and gave lots of insightful introductions about the attractions. Ha Long Bay is of course breathtaking. Will definitely take my foreigner friends back to this tour if I have a chance.

  • 16-Nov-2022

    The tour was very nice! The pickup was exactly on time, the tour guide was verg good at english and explained everything very well. I would recommend however, to stay at least one night since we were on the road for almost 8 hours and the tour took 12 hours in total.

  • 08-Nov-2022

    It was a fantastic experience from start to end. The cave is amazing, truly one of the most beautiful I ve ever seen. The kayak (or small boat) among the majestic landscape of huge rock formations was a wonderful way to experience it. As for the guide, he was super organized, caring, knowledgeable and friendly, not to mention the food is delicious and they accommodate every type of diet. I cannot recommend this cruise enough!

  • 20-Sep-2022

    Robert was not just a superb guide but an eventual lifesaver towards the end. Pick up at our hotel was seamless and friendly. Robert went out of his way to provide the most attentive and professional service possible. He seemed to know what we needed before we even asked for it. The set-up for cruising Halong Bay was much better than we expected with a surprisingly generous and delicious lunch as we sailed. The views are spectacular and they really go out their way to make sure you see everything, take the perfect pictures and feel like a kid again exploring this magical part of the world. As if everything on the tour wasn’t phenomenal enough, Robert saved the day in a special way. We had forgotten to pack the charger for our laptop and felt panic stricken not knowing what we were going to do, as Amazon doesn’t deliver to Vietnam and our laptop is rather old and finding a part - in Vietnam no less - was virtually impossible. Unless Robert made it happen. This man actually managed to find the obscure part somewhere in Hanoi and have it sent by courier to our hotel by the time we came back. Wow, If this isn’t perfect 5 star service, I don’t know what is! By all means take full advantage of this tour and hope and pray Robert is your guide. We can’t thank you enough, Robert. You made our short time in Hanoi a magnificent and memorable experience! You’re the best!

  • 15-Aug-2022

    The view is beautiful, we did some kayak and visited a cave. Our guide was nice and spoie English very well. My only regret is the pause at a shopping center, that was neither necessary nor interesting.

  • 05-Aug-2022

    Robert (Hai) our guide made it even more special. We chose to go on a smaller group - private driver etc and highly recommend it as we could experience so much more. We chose the bamboo boat and so glad we did!

  • 16-Mar-2020

    It was one of my goal to visit halong bay in Vietnam, I had a good day, the guide(Benjamin) was very helpfully and informative about every thing, he made our trip funny. We had a great lunch, good views, sights...highly I recommend this tour Thank you

    The tour itself was nice, my second time in halong bay. The kayak was a lot of fun. However the tour guide, Benjamin, was constantly making gay jokes, such as referring to the driver as a “ladyboy” because he was older and not yet married. Benjamin also made other jokes that made me quite uncomfortable.
