          Joke of a company
          Don't use this website to book a cruise. They show a lot of cruises as available and when you book they want a deposit. I booked one cruise and I then got an email saying the cruise is not available. I then chose another cruise and I was told only more expensive cabins are available. What a joke! The same cabin on is cheaper. I asked for my deposit to be refunded and they said it's going to take 10-15 days. Why take a deposit in the first place for something you can't actually provide? This company is a joke, you'll waste your time and money if you book through them.

          Waste of money and time
          Waste of time and waste of money. Food wasn't amazing, for dessert just a slice of watermelon, half of the things on boat didn't work - aircon didn't work, bath not working. The tour went to a complete tourist trap and were just too many people. Couldn't enjoy anything in those crowds.

          Sales scam - avoid transfers by Halong Bay Tours
          Booked a Halong Bay cruise (Swan Cruise), loved everything but... via Halong Bay Tours. Positive: Our private transfer to Hai phong airport was smooth, we requested to leave two hours after the cruise ended, so we would not have to wait 4 hours in the airport. There wasn't much to see in walking distance from the port and we had just eaten another good dinner, so did not use the restaurants, but had a walk and a drink in the port (very quiet after the cruises had left). Negative: The communication with the booking agency was not amazing. Every time it was a different person who replied, they did not reply to my questions and did not give me the information I asked for. I plan our trips myself, therefore I am a very demanding customer (I want details!), and the information regarding transfer on the HP, did not match the information I was received after booking. We had to leave 8.00 in the morning for the cruise, which embarked 13.30, a trip which takes about 2-2½ hours. They did not tell me why, but it is because they schedule a shopping stop after reaching Halong. It did not figure on the itinerary given (I think we wouldn't be the only ones to questions this stop), it was sold by the guide as a restroom/refreshments stop, we never got ANY kind of refreshments, but was ushered into a very depressing building with very boring assembly rooms with bad chairs. We guess, to receive as spiel about the products they sold in the shop, locally produced. We didn't want to hear a spiel in that dreary room, found nothing of interest in the shop and waited standing outside for the rest of the group. It was sold as a 30 min. stop, but took 95 min. And then it took 5 min. to reach the port. If we could have waited in the port, it would at least have been more pleasant. Oh yeah, and the schedule said pickup from our hotel 8.15-8.45, which was changed to 8.00 the evening before (I did not see the change until morning). And the guide was waiting for us at 7.45. So we really loved that we had to rush check-out, without time for coffee, just to sit 95 min. waiting outside a shop (again NO COFFEE!).

          Great option for comparing cruises
          This review is for Halong Bay Tours who we used as booking agent and not for the cruise which I have reviewed separately. We found this broker to be good value and an easy way to compare options. Beware that the website does not show live availability so do wait for confirmation prior to booking flights etc - we tried to book for April, received a "thank you for your booking" email and I was halfway through booking flights when I saw another email stating there was no availability. Fortunately I hadn't finalised the flights. When we came to book for the summer instead, we checked the pricing and found Halong Bay Tours was still better value than booking direct. Checking our itineerary ahead of travelling we spotted the confirmation was for 2D1N instead of 3D2N - our mistake - which the team were able to sort for us immediately, removing the stress. Transport was on time and comfortable, collecting us from our hotel in Hanoi and dropping us off at the airport. Overall great service.

          Great tour but could book directly through the boat
          The tour itself was incredible; we went on the Stellar of the Seas boat for a 3 day, 2 night cruise. The boat was beautiful and their staff was lovely. But this review is for the tour company that booked the cruise (Halong Bay Tours) - NOT the cruise itself What I liked about the tour company: - professional & polite, even with irate customers (me...prior to booking) - provided many options for tours to suit our needs. I emailed them stating what we were looking for and they replied with various options. Other companies that I emailed did not do this to the same standard What I did not like: - more expensive than booking through the boat company directly - took longer to reply to emails (a 72 hour window to reply was what they told me) - were sent the wrong itinerary - were given the wrong cancellation policy on 3 separate occasions prior to booking . Only after I paid in full and enquired about possibly canceling, did they tell me they made a mistake. This could have resulted in a very costly error for us. I would recommend using this company if you are unsure of what boat to take and just want it all done for you. If you know the boat you want, I would book directly through the boat. Booking directly through Stellar of the Seas would've been cheaper and they replied to my emails the same day with accurate information.

          We had a overnight Cruise with Emeraude which started about midday. After embarking there were welcome drinks as we set sail followed by lunch then an onshore excursion to Surprise Cave. Crepes were served at about 4ish then many of us went kayaking and returned just in time for Happy Hour. Following a cookery demonstration on the Sun deck Dinner was served. There was then an opportunity to go squid fishing, see a film or just watch the sun go down on what must be one of the most spectacular landscapes of rock formations. The cabin, although not luxurious, had all that we needed and we slept well in a comfortable bed. The next day after early coffee and pastries it was time for Tai Chi, a quick swim followed by a magnificent brunch then the cruise back to the Harbour. Halong Bay is an enchanting timeless world.

          Very interesting water tourism
          Tourism on the water in a boat with approximately 30 people. Also, get off the boat then use a small boat down the water and into coral caves. Waters with islands in the form of high cliffs. An interesting sight and experience that I've ever done.

          Great tour ...Not so great a drive
          The tour itself was excellent. The drive from Hanoi not so good. The driver didn’t speak any English and the van was freezing the entire trip. He would turn it on to clear the windows and then leave it on! We used google translate to request it be warmer but that didn’t happen for long. The temperature outside was around 16’ C but it was definitely colder inside the van! Overall I would recommend this tour but make sure you get a driver that speaks English and a van that has heat !

          Our tour guide was excellent, very funny and informative. Bus was clean. Boat and food were average. Experience worthwhile.

          Best of the North 6 days - Wonderful and memorable!
          The most important part of any tour you book is the efficiency of your agency to ensure all pickups, deliveries, and fulfillment of the itineraries are well executed. This I must inform was done to the very T - my family of 4 were served so well by Ms Huyen and we even could communicate via whatsapp from the time I booked the tour until the last day when we left Hanoi for home. The journey was complicated from the airport pickup, hotel pickups to the train stations and back, tour pickups from Sapa and Halong etc but I was so assured by Ms Huyen every step of the journey despite me duly expecting something to go wrong but none did. Highly recommending this tour agency to anyone considering a trip to Vietnam's wonderful and memorable north

          Good tour with knowlegable guide
          Luckily this tour only had 16 tourists which made it far more personable and efficient. The guide, Hong, was personable and full of facts and figures and really wanted to showcase his country. Trips were well organised and bang on time. The cave at the end of the tour was awesome.

          Reliable Tour Booking Service
          We booked our Halong Bay cruise through this company and found them to be efficient, helpful, and informative. Questions and concerns were usually addressed promptly and satisfactorily. When we paid the balance of our cruise fare at our hotel in Hanoi, we were informed that one of the activities on the cruise itinerary had been cancelled, seemingly without a good reason. We were not happy. Later we received an e-mail from the staff telling us that the activity had been restored. The limousine taking us to the cruise site, which was provided by Halong Bay Tours, was stopped by the police at a tool booth on the highway. Apparently the driver did not have the proper documents for the passengers he was carrying. The delay lasted about twenty minutes and was a bit concerning.

          Special place to visit
          A must seen place in Vietnam. Very famous and beautiful place to visit. You can take Day long tour in Halong bay or you can stay over night. Scenery are so charming. Their tourist handling system is professional. You will not face any disturbance.

          Wonderful Trip Through Halong Bay
          My partner and I loved our trip through Halong Bay with Majestic Cruises. Our guide, Hero, got out of the tour bus to find us and bring us to the bus from our Airbnb. The bus on the way to the bay was comfortable and Hero shared personal stories and made the drive easier. The cruise ship itself was very comfortable, the food was good, and the sights were amazing! Would definitely recommend Majestic Cruises to anyone looking to travel to Halong Bay, and if Hero is your guide you’re extra lucky!
