Know More about this tour

Your Halong Bay tour begins with a 3.5-hour drive from the hectic pace in Vietnam's capital city, Hanoi, to the tranquil and beautiful Halong Bay. En route stop at the Hong Ngoc Humanity Center, a handicraft outlet developed to provide support to communities in the area including people's with disabilities. The handicrafts made at the center are available for you to purchase.

On arrival in Halong City board the Chinese junk for your cruise on Halong Bay, famous for its lime karsts jutting out of the green waters creating a spectacular vista as nearly 2000 islands fill the bay. A UNESCO listed World Heritage site since 1994, Halong Bay means "Bay of the Descending Dragon". Legend has it that a long time ago when the Vietnamese were fighting off foreign invaders, the gods sent a family of dragons to assist in the fight. During the battle the dragons spat out jewels that would later become the islands that now are scattered around the bay.

The cruise explores some of the grottos and caves that have formed in many of the islands that fill Halong Bay. Visit a fishing village where you learn about the culture and customs of the local inhabitants and enjoy a scrumptious seafood lunch on board the boat before returning to Hanoi.

Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour at the rate listed above. Please select child above when booking. Children below the age of 6 are not permitted on this tour.

Please note that swimming is not permitted in line with new regulations introduced by the local authority concerning the section of Halong Bay we visit. The Local authority of Halong Bay decided to remove the Van Gia fishing farm (next to Thien Cung Cave) to be outside in 2014 and therefore we can no longer visit this village. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate.

    We had a small group tour, which ended up as a private tour because the other tourists cancelled the trip. The van was very comfortable. The driver drove carefully. The guide, Chin, was very good in giving information about Vietnam history.

    My wife and i selected a small group tour for Ha long bay. When we finally found our tour guide it was at the Hanoi Opera house. There was a mix-up We assumed They would pick us up but no. We had to go to them. This as it turned out was rather silly as we were the only two on the tour and the pickup was about 4 or 5 streets away from our hotel.The Tour Guide was from "Urban Adventures - Indochina". And the Guide stayed with us the entire time.His name was" My" and was called Mike. He was very knowledgeable, polite and very friendly. I do wish all the guide were like him. Seemed odd to just be two people in a large Van and on the large boat. But Mike said his company guaranteed the tour even when the group turned out to be so small.We had a great time it poured down rain we got soaked and the tour continued into the cave. I must admit the Vietnamese really thought about the tourist making sure the stair leading to the cave and walking areas inside the cave were very safe. Even for senior Citizens. Mike did a great job the whole time with a narration about the islands and cave. Super time Thanks Mike

    This is a great trip if the weather is nice. Unfortunately, we had a cloudy day. The cave we visited was beautiful. Our guide did an excellent job and everything was very well arranged. This is a must do when visiting Hanoi.

    We went with Urban Advebtures on this trip. First of all their team is wonderful. San was with us and explained everything clearly and with great passion. He loves his country and by the time he is done you will too. Great trip. Clean bus. Smooth driver Mr. Hill. Good food on the boat. Highly recommended.

    Be prepared for a long day of travel, but the view of Halong Bay us worth it. The walk through the cave was very interesting. Did feel like we were on the set of Kong Island!

    The tour was good, we were being picked up on time and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about Halong Bay history and spoke very good English. All and all we had a very enjoyable day.

    Enjoyed this trip immensely, was guided by Tam who is first class, she knows her history, geography and is an all round superb host - nothing was too much trouble. Her English and manner is a credit to Vietnam, the people and the nation - couldn’t recommend the tour more!
