I visited Veitnam just couple of week before and stayed at Hilton Hanoi Opera for three nights. I booked this one day tour to Halong bay with Alova tours and it was simply amazing. Comfortable coach, luxury cruise ship with fresh and hot food. I will definitely recommend this tour to all visiting Veitnam. Raza London

Had a fab time on the one night two day cruise. Alova back a lot of activities into a very short period of time but it enables you to make the most of your short time in Halong Bay. The cruise was relaxing and the views are fantastic. All the crew were very helpful, and Sunny was our guide who... More

Dear LJD09, I admit that Halong bay is natually beautiful and I'm glad that our Alova Gold cruise gave you "a desire to spend much longer in Halong Bay". Of course you should. To be isolated and go further in the bay, let get back and spend 1 more day in Halong bay. You will have full day relaxing, kayaking... More

I just wanted to say Tom was a tremendous host. He was incredibly funny, very enthusiastic and was very passionate about Hanoi. Had so much knowledge. Shared thoughts on food and took questions from everyone. He even sang at the end. I enjoyed the Halong Bay trip although it was a short day. I went with my friend. For couples,... More

Everything was really well organised. We took a one night cruise around Halong Bay and we were a group of only 15 people or so. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Bought the cruise in airport while getting transport to the hotel. The promoter claimed that this is one of the best with high standard. She charged USD65. But with all the homework I did before travel, I knew that USD54 can get a good day cruise. With only that statement she immediately lower the price to USD55. Anyway, the scene... More
