Booked the day tour directly through their website. It was very simple. No phone calls needed. We were picked up from our hotel on time. Our bus was nice and clean. I think the bus is quite new. Our tour guide, Thinh, was a friendly guy. He was very informative and helpful. We were in a small group. There were only 9 people in the group. Perfecto.
After around 3,5 hrs driving, we arrived at Halong Bay. The boat was old, but clean. When the boat started to move, lunch was served. It was really disappointing. They served seafood, pork, beef, and vegetables. Nice try but they really need to work on the food. Those food were the worst lunch I had during my trip in Vietnam.
The view was beautiful. Thien Cung cave was interesting. Riding a rowing boat around the floating village was also good experience. But I think Halong Bay will be more beautiful in the morning. Should go back there and take the morning cruise ;)
