  • Very good trip in a small group of 12 to Halong Bay.
    Enjoyed the cruise, cave visit, floating village small boat trip although no more villagers and only fishing boats and the food !

  • lots of time in the car but halong bay was beautiful. wish i wouldve done the overnight tour.

  • Incredible trip! Highly recommend

  • Great experience. The 4 hours drive each way is kind of long but so worth it once you arrive there. The food they give you on the boat is really good and there are so many different dishes so everyone is happy. Thank you for a great day

  • 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.
