Hoi An, Vietnam7 contributions1 helpful vote
Contacted day before to confirm pick up time. Bus arrived promptly, older vehicle but vary spacious and clean. Guide was informative and easy to understand. Took a while to negotiate our way out of Hanoi. Hoa Lu was a let down Very little to see but we did get a good history of the country from the guide. Short ride then to Mua cave. Its a climb up steep steps. There are in fact two peaks on is severely steep the other just steep. It took us 22 minutes to get to the top absolutely amazing view and the chance to take lots of spectacular photos. There is no health and safety, barriers at the summit you can move along the ridge away from the crowds awesome. Unfortunately there's lots of litter and plastic bottles stuffed in the rocks and crags which spoils it so much. 10 minute detour to the other peak and then back down. Easily manageable in 60 mins. We only saw one other couple from our group on the hill no one else ventured up and the guide stayed in the cafe at the foot of the stairs. Lunch in a local restaurant. Everything cooked freshly buffet style grab what you want and eat. Very tasty but not that clean. We cycled for about 40 minutes through the paddy fields and along the side of the river (yes it does look just like in the photos in the guide book) The bikes were awful. The handle bars came off the first one I picked up. Believe it or not it actually made it perversely more enjoyable on a ancient bike with one working brake and no suspension. The boat ride was tranquil with the boatsman rowing with his feet. They do require a tip at the end so have some local currency available. Non eventful journey back to Hanoi. Its a full day but worth it.

I did the tour with my group of students as part of an educational excursion from university and was supposed to be the last experience of our trip. It was in March 2019. The drive from Hanoi to the harbor was around 2h30. Arriving at the harbor we saw that a lot of hotels were being built and construction work everywhere. The boat: Since our group was 17 people we had the tour boat exclusively for us. The boat was a bit old school but it was all clean. It has an inside room with benches and tables and an outdoor deck with benches as well. It was enough room and enough space to relax. The two restrooms on board were clean too. The tour: The tour started right at the appointed time and on board we got briefed by the staff on what we are going to do. On the way to the bay we were given a multi course sea food lunch. It was just delicious, I felt like being in a high class restaurant. Usually I don't like seafood but this lunch made me definitely change my mind. The food was also cooked on board. After lunch the boat already arrives at the bay and you could go on the roof deck of the boat and take pictures. Even though the weather was not that clear it was pretty scenic. After some time we stopped at Sung Sot and visited a beautiful cave. There is a pretty long walkway leading through the cave and its all artificially lighted, at the end you arrive at a viewpoint where you have a stunning view over Sung Sot. They gave us like 45min for the cave and then we returned to the boat. On board, our teacher first had to argue a bit with the tour guide to still visit the second destination included in our tour. (the tour guide had the opinion it was already too late and we should return). At the end we won the argument and went to our second destination, which was a dock with a kayak rental and a bamboo boat tour. The dock was crazily crowded, and we had to fight our way through the crowd to the rental. We all rented a kayak and went through a small water cave to a small bay at the other side. It was amazing! We had a small water battle and got all drenched, had so much fun. Back at the boat we changed clothes one at a time at the boats restroom and returned back. Our tour guide was a bit of a pretty nervous dude and tried to stress around (not in a rude way, he still was very friendly) but our teacher managed to calm him down. He seemed like he wants to do his best, but nobody likes to be stressed around on vacation. Also I have to mention that it is sad that such a beautiful place is so ruined by mass tourism. On the boat to the bay, at least 10 other tour boats crossed us. The Sung Sot cave was pretty busy too, but terribly overcrowded was the kayak rental dock. It felt like being at a fairground at friday night. Also the water was polluted. Its all too much commercialized. conclusion: Ignoring the fact of mass tourism and the small argument on board it was an excellent tour. The kayak, the seafood lunch, the landscape and maybe the cave, a nice experience after all! date of experience: march 2019

We had a wonderful experience on the full-day trip! Our guide was very fun and informative, and we got a very thorough look at Halong Bay through the boat trip, and excursion around the islands, and the cave hike.

The day trip was well organised, a wonderful day of sightseeing away from busy Hanoi. Our guide Nghia spoke excellent English . He was informative, polite and courteous at all times. To mention a few of the activities, the Temples were beautiful. Climbing the 500 steps to the pagoda was well worth the effort to see such amazing views. Bike riding was fun with the added bonus of a wonderful lunch stop along the way. We loved the boat trip, the only uncomfortable part were the sampan sellers who were very persistent in wanting you to buy there goods and also at the end of the boat trip the rower became quite vocal, regarding the tip that he expected. This was a shame because otherwise a wonderful great value money day.
