Our group was booked on this tour and I was really looking forward to it - a day on Halong Bay - and I was not disappointed. A very interesting bus trip from Hanoi, passing through many villages and passing many rice paddies, we arrived at Halong Bay (a UNESCO World Heritage site) about mid-morning. We boarded the boat and began our sail through the beautiful emerald waters and the many (around 2,000) limestone islets. Lunch was served on the boat and was delicious. We returned to the dock about mid-afternoon to head back to Hanoi.

We went on an intrepid tour with 12 others that we didn't know, this was our second night together what a great way to get to know others sitting on a junk watching the most beautiful scenery having cocktails and beers bought to you while taking photos and chatting. We got to the caves late in the afternoon and then explored the caves they are amazing well worth the walking and climbing so pretty. then back to the boat and watch the sunset while being fed a great meal and drinking more cocktails and beers, then out came the karaoke.The rooms are spacious and very clean & all have en suites. If you can get a room upstairs its a better view, our room was on the bottom & the transport boat was tied up outside blocking the view from our bed a small thing but bothered me

Halong Bay is the stuff dreams are made of: steep limestone islets sprinkled throughout a bay surrounded by hills, caves and the Red River delta stretching from Hanoi. The air seems misty, as if you could wake up at any minute and find it was all a dream -- but it's real, and the photos prove that this magical place really does exist. If you are ever in North Vietnam, this is a MUST SEE experience.

Please please please be careful who you book these tours with! Do not book off of people at the wharf or marina, the guys walking around with brochures are all scammers. So are the people in the little travel agencies in Hanoi! They show you indochinas brochures and promise this and that, and you get to the boat and it's disgusting. We went during Tet mistakenly and we really needed to get to Cat Ba, so we booked a tour and thought we'd just stay on the island after our second day. Huge mistake. The boat was nasty, our room was so dirty, cigarettes in the bed, the tour had nothing they promised. Long waits and a waste of time is all. Everyone in the boat was scammed. Some people didnt even get to sleep on the boat at all. The second night was on the island at a filthy hotel. This was the biggest mistake of my whole SE Asia trip. Do not book these tours! Go on legit websites and book through them.

We purchased 3day 2night tour from our hotel in hanoi. 1st night on boat and 2nd night in a hotel. Was ment to have bbq, fishing, caves, canoeing, games and activities on the boat. All food, water and tranfers included at $105 Australian
We veiwed all the pictures and itinerary. It looked amazing.

The bus was 1hour late to pick us up. The boat was changed at the last min, which ment we had to stay the first night in a diff hotel call Mosco (need I say more). The food was terriable. (My wife got food poisoning). We spent the next day waiting for buses to a trek. (2hours late) The trek was good. The next night was on the boat. No bbq dinner, no fishing and no activities. We did do some swimming in the bay, however there was so much rubbish in the bay most didn't swim. The food was still rubbish on the boat. Staff slept on the tables. Cochroaches riddled the non airconditioned rooms. Another girl on the tour was serverly bitten by bed bugs. Friends we traveled with, bailed after the first night and we bailed after the second night and stayed in halong city. Other tour groups had very similar stories and complaints.

We travelled for two and a half hours from our hotel in Hanoi to Halong bay and stood around for another hour and a half waiting to board the boat. Our group of 35 people from Germany, Singapore ,France, China were all happy to eventually board our boat for 2 days We travelled for 2 hours and dropped anchor for the night .The scenery was beautiful although a lot of mist which was hard to see very far. Our accommodation was very good. with plenty of room. The meals were very poor only just enough for each person. The next day we travelled for another hour and stoped of at a island with caves which we all went to and climbed over 800 steps to get to a cave. We returned to our departure point only to sit there for half a day before we could get off the boat to go back to Hanoi .There are a lot of tour operators here make sure you ask the rite questions as to what the itinery is so you don't get ripped off

2 days/ 1 night, I had an incredible time. The place is so beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, inspiring, I highly recommend. The crew we had were fantastic, they are friendly, helpful and work so hard, the boat is immaculate. Our guide Tim was fantastic, we packed in so much and he got the balance right of telling us things but not crowding us. You have to do the the kayaking, it’s excellent. What’s not to love!
Our bar man Bien was great, so friendly and they just want you to have a good time.
The place the people, I am over the moon with my first two full days in Vietnam and fully recommend this trip.

We were on a cruise ship so this was one of our tours. The boats are the traditional "junk boats" but were just fine and actually pretty decent inside, and they had restrooms. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip for the day enjoyable in a very crowded situation. The boats go across Halong Bay and head to the huge underground cave, which is covered in more boats and more people. Our guide kept us together and got us through the cave in a pretty amazing manner considering. Be VERY prepared for steps upon steps that head up the side of a large hill. You will then have to walk quite a ways up the hill and through the cave on uneven and sometimes wet pavement. The inside of the cave is worth the trip, but if you are disabled, I would recommend skipping the cave completely, it would just be too difficult. The boats are all competing to get to the best place at each area to take pictures while out on the bay, so it's not unusual for them to "bump into" each other to get others out of the way. You're fine, but just be prepared you may hit a few boats on the trip. I don't know of another way to see what we saw that day in Halong Bay!

Took 3 hours by road from Hanoi. Wow amazing surprise when we saw how beautiful our boat was . Ha long Jasmine. Spectacular views , great food and hospitality. Had a relaxing massage on board .Trip to see the caves and a floating village was really fun . Well worth the money.
