We booked our tour through the hotel we were staying in, and I must say that everything was wonderful. Very jummie food, a room for 2 with air-conditioning and a bathroom. The bathroom was a bit smelly, but nothing you wouldn't expect on a boat ;) We went canoeing, which was the most amazing part of the trip... Just cruising... More

Staff was friendly and helpful, the food was great and the ship itself was great to be on. A particular highlight was the top deck, which provides a lot of space for visitors to relax and enjoy the atmospher Halong Bay provides.

Generally speaking, Ha Long Bay is among the most famous and beautiful sights in Vietnam and definitely a must- visit. Still, I was not really satisfied with my day trip at the beginning of April. As my time was limited, I decided to visit it in one single day and this was a big mistake: Ha Long Bay deserves at... More

My friend and I booked this Alova Gold Cruise through a hotel package with Hanoi Victory Hotel for a very good deal. On the day of the trip, we were picked up by Mr. Tom, who spoke great English, and was very helpful and knowledgeable as a guide. He stayed with us the entire trip, taking us kayaking, caving, and...

Even though the price maybe a little high compared to the others it is worth it. The pickup form the hotel, the bus ride, the tour guide, the boat, food - everything makes you with little to complain. BTW the beer on the boat is not too expensive but you can carry your own as well. We got a decent... More

The service is perfectly adjusted from the start to the end: pick up, no waiting at the harbour, good agenda, and the food is good :) Choose the 3 day cruise if you really want to enjoy it: you'll...
