About Secret Halong Cruise
With audacity and elegance, Secret Halong subdues the waves to transport you to a place of heightened sensitivities, for a day of discovery, or, better yet, for an even greater appreciation of this enchanted site, a night aboard the junk, where, gently rocked by the sapphire waters, we vanish into the labyrinth of the bay.

I booked this on booking.com based on reviews but the website doesn’t have the itinerary on the site so I didn’t know it in advance. Long story short, they don’t take you to one of the main attractions of Halong Bay, Surprise (sung sot) cave. Instead they take to a tiny, lame cave. They do it because they want to be away from other tourists but there's a reason everyone goes to surprise cave and no one goes to the small lame cave we went to. I was really disappointed. Other reviews here probably think that all the caves in Halong Bay are as lame as the one we went to so they then brag that they were the only ones there. This is a good cruise if you want to be away from other tourists and you're looking for a nice boat at a decent price. It’s not a good cruise if you’re looking to see the impressive cave and experience the better kayaking (the kayaking here provided the same view and experience you get form the boat). I’d much rather see the better sites like Surprise Cave even if there are more people. The staff is nice and tries, and the food is solid (nice but not amazing or anything) but overall I was very disappointed. I really regret choosing this cruise as I’l probably never be back in Halong Bay. What a sad waste.

We had a great time with Chuyen as our host. The shuttle bus to collect us was well organised and it was a smooth journey. Chuyen was waiting when we arrived. The cabins on the boat are beautifully decorated and are a good size. The food is fab, with lots of delicious vegetarian options if you ask for a special dietary requirement. Drink options are also very good. Kayaking was fun. The tai chi in the morning was relaxed and enjoyable. We enjoyed the walk to look out over the top of the bay. The only negative was having to wait 45mins for the shuttle back to our hotel, but this wasn’t a major issue. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

Loved it. it had a lot of different activities with visiting a cave, cayaking and walking up to the top of a hill to enjoy the scenery. The food was amazing and the staff really friendly. Best part though you even get a hot shower after all the activities.
