It would be nice to have a/c when we wanted...the room was pretty warm during the day after activities. The food was really nice. I would have preferred lunch later on the... More

We visited halong bay in August on a two day and one night cruise. The tour itself was brilliant. We were picked up at 8am and driven to halong bay where we boarded a boat. We were shown our cabin, which was a good size, with air conditioning and a decent sized bed. The first day consisted of being driven... More

We went to Halong Bay in August 2014. The weather was great offering blue skies and incredible views. We had an overnight stay on board the Alova Gold Cruise boat which is part of Go Asia Travel. The meals and accommodation on board were great, enhanced by the friendly staff and activities provided. The boat only had 9 cabins enabling... More

We absolutely enjoyed this cruise. Our hotel, Hanoi Serene Hotel, offered this cruise as part of one of their packages. After reading the good reviews here, we've booked it and were very happy with our choice. Our guide was Man who provided lots of interesting information and entertainment. We were a small group of 15, and we all get along... More

With so many companies offering Ha Long Bay tours, it's hard to decide which one to choose. You won't be disappointed it you choose Alova cruises. The boat is a great size (8 double rooms) so the group size is perfect for a sociable but chilled out cruise. The cabins are nice and clean - don't expect anything huge as... More

Dear cnlormor1, There are so many cruises in Halong bay with different concept and service standard. It was lovely that we met and fit well with each other as you " like the sea" and "happy to canoe". Alova Gold cruise is small and cozy with 8 cabins only.
