  • Fantastic, highly recommend!

  • Not so lucky for this trip as it was raining.... so the Halong Bay looked grooming and we cant do kayaking. Our tour guide was too shy and soft spoken but he tried his best to take care of everyone. The cave is nice and worth a visit.

  • Halong Bay is perfect for those who want to get captivated by nature.

  • A very good trip. The sights of Halong Bay made the trip worth the effort. Company was good and made the trip enjoyable. The bus trip was long total 8 hours, but the rest area was not too bad. No high pressure tactics to buy stuff you don't want.

  • A value for money tour. Maybe little improvements on the bus are recommended.

  • I'd say a couple of days tour would be best if you're taking on Ha Long Bay. We found ourselves almost always in a hurry on this one. It was good overall.

  • Fantastic

  • Booking the Halong Bay trip via Viator is highly recommended. The Full-Day Trip is highly engaging. The bus picked us up from the Opera House and it was a four hour drive to Ha Long Bay. There we were separated into two groups and we were taken to the Marina. The boat was quite small but enough for a small group. The food was very good but if you're vegetarian in our case one was the options weren't too great. The guide was insightful and knew his way around. We took a ride on the fishing boats to the caves and then climbed up and saw the caves which were absolutely brilliant and a must-do! Unfortunately we were unable to do the kayaking which would have been a different experience. All in all, the trip was worth the money and highly enjoyable.

  • Ha Long Bay really blew us all away - thank you to our tour guide Tony, who provided the group with entertaining anecdotes of the history of the caves, which was the highlight of the day for us! The seafood lunch on the boat was delicious - just like home-cooked food! The boat ride there and back was lovely - perfect views and a good amount of space on the top deck for you to take panoramic shots. Would definitely recommend this full-day trip to anyone visiting Hanoi!

  • Halong bay was one of the highlights of our holiday to Vietnam and this tour is fantastic. The itinerary has been well planned and the scenery of Halong bay is breathtaking. The Guide was very helpful and informative and the size of the tour group was just right. The boat was safe and comfortable and the lunch on board was tasty and plentiful. There is nothing about this tour that I could fault and I would happily recommend it.
