This was a fantastic overnight cruise. Whilst the boat is a little old, it is very well furnished. There is an excellent sun deck and the rooms were perfect for an overnight trip. The quality and presentation of the food whilst on board was exceptional. Halong Bay is beautiful and a must see. Our trip included being taken to an... More

One word for our personal tour guide -"EXCELLENCE" for his friendliness and hospitality.. He was very jovial and cheerful at all times,.. thus he had imparted good feeling and HAPPINESS to us with his good nature... His willingness to explain things in details when asked is also laudable. As for the service of this company, I am more than happy... More

I recently visited Halongbay with my family, and must say that we had such a memorable time thanks to this tour package! Everything was very well-planned to the details- from pick-up at the hotel to the animated guide and explanation in the bus, to our arrival at the special Vietnamese boat, food so well presented and enjoyable activities such as...

I recently had an overnight trip in Halong Bay with Alova Gold. The trip was fabulous. The boat was anchored for a while around the back of an island, away from the rest of the tour boats giving us a feeling of isolation and peace. We were able to swim off the boat and enjoyed kayaking around the bay's as... More

We were travelling as a group of 8 and all of us had a wonderful time at Halong Bay. The boat was comfortable and the food and cocktails, amazing! We all felt that one night was sufficient to spend out on the boat. We swam at a small beach, kayaked off the boat, visited the caves and drank far too... More

My girlfriend and I visited Halong Bay with Alova Gold tours last week and had a lovely experience. With our fantastic guide Sunny, we not only got to cruise through the bay, we also went kayaking, hiking swimming and cave exploring. Despite all of the planned activities, we still had time to relax and sunbathe on the top deck. Sunny... More

I was on the Alova boat for the 2 day 1 night cruise. I was very happy with the organisation, everything worked well. Even though the stops (1 for each way, from Hanoi) were bot necessary and are only designed to spend some money, the cruise itself was fantastic. Our tour guide 'Sunny' did his best to make us feel... More

First of all it was definitively the right decision to do 3 days 2 nights. The second day was the best of the 3. The first and the last day were packed with tourists stops which were very crowded. This gave the impression that the whole of Ha Long must be stressy and crowded, which was not the case on... More
