        Good tour but forced to tip by the tour guide
        The view is amazing.the biking is pleasant . However coming to the boat ride.Everything was prepaid but the boat operator asked us to buy snacks so we obliged.Since it takes a long while to row. Later while reaching the bay area the boat operator forced us to tip him to which we replied we would once we get off. So as promised we tipped him.Our tour operator Mr.Minh said 5000 won't buy him anything we should tip more...hence we shelled out 4000 more as that was the only cash we were left with...to which he said this would hardly buy him anything..but my question to all this is...is the customer responsible for well being of the staff or is the company responsible for giving them a fair wage..also tipping should be done according to once means not as per the happiness of the receiver. The whole incident was truly disrespectful.

        Great Tour of Ha Long Bay
        Booking was easy. I made reservations to see Ha Long Bay the night before and the operator promptly sent me a message via Whatsapp and email to confirm. I was picked up at my hotel and bought to a central location in the Old Quarter and was picked up in a bus with other passengers. Bus was full but not crowded or cramped. The tour operator explained the itinerary engaged the group in light conversation before the roughly 2 hour bus ride. The ride includes a stop at a rest area for snacks before reaching the cruise port. The cruise port is very crowded as numerous tours are embarking at the same time. We were guided to our cruise where it was roughly 30-50 guests on a boat with 2 floors. First floor consists of assigned tables, a bar area and bathrooms. Upstairs is an open air deck with lounge chairs. Boat never felt crowded, plenty of room to move around. The tour included numerous stops including Ti Top island (where you can either swim at the small beach or climb 250 plus steps to see spectacular views of Ha Long Bay. Additional stops included Kayaking and visiting a large cave. The tour itself was wonderfully done, very informative, great host, plenty of time at each stop. My only complaint has nothing to do with the tour operators. Ha Long Bay is noticeably polluted with plastics so I chose not to swim. Also the crowds (during summer months) were huge so there were often lines at each place. The tour itself was well done and I would recommend to anyone.

        Row Row your boat
        A trip full of fun n adventure Started day early from Hanoi & was transferred to Hoa Lu after 3 hours On the way you will take a pause at some neatly maintained Rest & Relax facility & you will also be guided for some local products Once you are at Hoa Lu you will be directed to Dancing Cave side wherein normally u will have two choices either to go for tracking or cycling You can also get bike . Cycle for around 30-45 minutes in the country side You will be passing through lotus ponds & villages which is quite exciting Thereafter move to Temple side In Vietnam temples are basically a memorial places Here there are 2 temples of 2 ancient kings who shaped Vietnam as a country in 10th century Visitors are not supposed to wear short dresses Bit don’t worry robes are available free of cost which your guide will give you to wear Normally after there you will be taken for lunch break which is buffet & having varieties however vegans will struggle After that most exciting & adventurous piece of the journey comes I.eThe boat tour The 45 mts boat tour in the river is mesmerising The boats are sailed by boat person normally they are females & it is sailed by not by hands but by legs Very labour intensive The sight is worth seeing as the boats sails through the river under caves near mountains Very scenic & enjoyable There are no if good resorts Bungalow Tom Coc caught my eyes On the return journey pls pay tips to boat person as a mark of your gratitude to hard labour

        Great experience
        Exactly as described. When compared to a 5 star Ha long bay experience with the ‘limousine’ travel from another company, the experience on this tour was a lot better. Tang was a great tour guide - giving interesting info about the places we drove through without being too much. He kept us to schedule really well and adapted to the changing traffic to do this. Nice pagoda visit at the beginning. In contrast to our other tour - this tour wasn’t trying to up sell throughout (or at all). Normal tour bus not anything fancy but had A/C. The bike ride was excellent - really beautiful and good length. Not physically demanding. Brief stretch of road at the end with more traffic was a little bit dangerous. Providing helmets would be useful. The food wasn’t bad for the overall tour price. The boat ride was really long - maybe around 1 hour 45 mins with a rower! Great scenery including caves with low ceiling that you go through. Could make this a little shorter for more time at the final part of the tour. Not asked for tips like I read for other locations like tam coc although I did as the poor woman worked so hard. The steps on the last part of the tour to the view point would be physically difficult for some people particularly to do in the allocated time - more time here taken from the boat ride would be great. Lots of great photo opportunities throughout. Surprised it’s not got more reviews on Tripadvisor as genuinely really good value and the best experience on our trip so far.

        Amazing day in Ninh Bihn
        After the initial mix up with the hotel pick-up, we had an amazing day in Ninh Bihn. The tour includes a visit to the local temple, an easy 30 min bicycle ride, an hour boat ride to the caves and a steep hike to the local peak. Sophia our guide did an amazing job sharing some stories on Vietnamese history and giving us some insights on local customs. We really enjoyed the tour and it's highly recommended if you're visiting Northern Vietnam.

        Responsible Tour
        I book this trip on 29th march. And Actually we have a good experience with this trip. But at that time we had some quite bad experience with the tour guide. But due to the very good response from Tony Hoang (owner) and also Trinh. They both said apologies for it. And they handle the problem very serously So I decided to change the star and write down another review..anyway it didnt change my love for Hanoi. And I will book another tour from this tour for another visit

        Not good on a wet day
        Well the scenery is great, even when th clouds are ow and and it is very wet. But I was not that impressed with the samoan ride. It is linda fun to be rowed up the river and then back, but you do have to remember to duck when you go through some of the caves!! But is was quite uncomfortable on a hard bench with no back-rest and it was raingin quite steadily, so we were very, very wet by the time we got back to the starting point. Different, but not that enjoyable.

        Amazing experience
        The boat ride down the river through the caves was amazing. We also took a bike ride through the countryside before lunch which was fun. It was misting and we were provided w ponchos which worked well to keep from getting soaked. The lunch that was provided wasn't the greatest but that did not detract from t the rest of the excellent day.

      Our Ninh Binh tour was one of the highlights of our Vietnam trip. The tour includes visits to Hoa Lu, Tam Coc, and Mua Caves. However, I advise confirming with the booking agent what is included in the tour (check the photos in their catalog) and the mode of transportation. You should clarify whether it will be a bus, which can be crowded with around 40 people, or a limousine with fewer passengers (7-12 people). Choose according to your preference, but ensure you get what you're paying for.

      Additionally, be aware that prices can fluctuate significantly between online bookings and purchasing at a local stall, so do your due diligence. Our guide's English was just okay, but we noticed other guides who were more proficient. This is an area for improvement for the tour companies. Lastly, note that water bottles are unlimited, though this isn't always communicated clearly, leading some to believe only one bottle is provided at the start of the trip.

      Although we rarely take tours, I think that for this particular itinerary the best way to do it is by taking one. We reserved it via Viator, and the company that provided it is called Aloha Vietnam Travel. They picked us up from the hotel at exactly the time scheduled in a very beautiful, modern and comfortable mini van with wifi, seat massage and great AC. The tour itself is amazing and a must for any visitor to Hanoi. If you want to take full advantage of what the tour offers, you need to be in good enough shape to climb the steps to get to see those fantastic views. Mr. Sang was a courteous, caring and skilful driver. Maya is a FANTASTIC guide. Full of energy and knowledge she gave us all the necessary information, climbed with us all the steps and took pictures and movie clips of the 7 people who participated in the tour. The bicycle portion is a nice opportunity to feel a bit like a local. The boat trip offers allows you to admire the scenic beauty of the area including short passages through cave sites. The lunch was magnificent. A well planned tour as activities and bus travel time and relaxation are appropriately integrated it. DO NOT MISS IT.

      We enjoyed every second of our tour with Victor (literally). From start to finish he was excellent providing insight to the history of Vietnam while still keeping it light and fresh. We smoothly transitioned from one activity to the next without becoming tired and at each stop Victor provided more information. We loved our time on the tour and would recommend it to many others.

      Quy our tour guide and Hoa our driver were the best hosts we could ask for. Quy is from Ninh Binh and is super knowledgeable about the history while still making everything engaging with his jokes. Everything was timed nicely and we never felt rushed. Super friendly 👍 I also really enjoyed the bicycle ride!

      big shoutout to Quy for guiding our day trip to Ninh Binh -- he was proactive in taking photos of our big group and individual groups, looking out for each of our safety and overall ensuring we had a fun time. I'd highly recommend this for people who are into the thrill of outdoor activities - cycling around the area, the boat ride along Tam Coc, trekking up and down Hang Moa. if you are more keen on the history of Vietnam's ancient capital, you can chat with Quy/the guide more or consider another tour.
