Halong Bay was one of the to-see-place in my list. I'm glad that I've booked this amazing one day cruise. It was a great experience overall.

Our tour guide Trung (Le Quang Trung) was fantastic! He made our one-day Halong Bay tour really fun and interesting. His beaming smile and excellent knowledge of the area made the day really enjoyable. We asked him many questions about Vietnam, and he gave us such insightful information. His English is exceptional! Trung's light-hearted conversation and relaxed manner made the... More

Out tour guide was very difficult to understand his English, we only understood 20% of what he said. The driver of the 25 person bus was holding his cell phone using it for calls often over the 8 hour drive. The food quality was poor. I can't recommend this tour company

Don't expect luxury, just fair quality/price service, The food on board is good and the boat is fine. They'll take to visit some caves with lots of unnecessary bright neons, paddle around in not so good kayaks and that's it!
