We booked our cruise through our hotel after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. Our guide was really interesting and funny and clearly explained timings etc whilst en-route to Halong from Hanoi. It was quite a misty day when we left and there was some confusion when we arrived at the dock about whether... More

We had an absolutely wonderful time with Alova Gold Cruise. Tom our guide picked us up at the dot of 8 in the morning. From then on everything was meticulously planned. The trip is a must...the weather was perfect. The boat is very well maintained. Cabins are delightful though you hardly spend time in them. Food was in abundance (a... More

We wanted to take a Halong Bay cruise whilst staying in Hanoi. We didn't want bargain basement nor did we want to blow our budget on luxury so we chose the mid-range Alova for 2 days/1 night as part of a package with our hotel and we weren't disappointed. The journey to Halong Bay takes approaching 4 hours along some... More

We were picked up on time from our hotel and we were greeted by our outstanding tour guide Mr. Kim who made sure everything was okay. The cruise manager Mr. Moui is very friendly and approachable.

We recently travelled out to Halong Bay with these guys on a 2 day 1 night tour. It was great fun, the guide (Minh) was fun and helpful. Tours included were great, a little on the short side and we were unable to swim. Our room was cosy and the facilities were great, food was ok. Sometimes it seemed we... More

A wonderful experience and such memories! Truly awesome! The crew and guide (Man!) just add to the trip - they were exceptional. The bus driver was patient and safe, the guide informative but funny and the crew were most attentive, a perfect combination! Drinks on board were not cheap but neither were they breaking the bank. Food was plentiful and... More

We booked 1 day tour with Alova to Halong Bay after reading up from trip advisor. We visited the office at Hang Dong St since we were staying in Old Quarter on a Sunday to book the Monday tour. The guy in the office placed our booking and said the office is usually close on Sunday. Guess it was meant... More

I would highly recommend this excursion. The amenities are comfortable, the staff is talented and very nice, the food was great, and the views are unbelievable. I went solo and still had a good time. It will always be a top story I tell when I speak of my travels to Vietnam.
