“3 days 2 nights tour is highly recommended”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We enjoyed the 3 days 2 nights trip. The guide (Mr. Jack) picked us up at the hotel and along the way he told us a little bit story about Vietnamese culture and also vietnamese language in casual ways so we don't get bored in a 4 hours driveway to Halong Bay.

On the first day we went to the most crowded and visited cave, the surprise cave and also to crowded beach.

On the second day, we went to a very secluded area of Halong Bay, in which we experienced the natural beauty of Halong Bay and also its mystic surroundings that grants Halong as the new 7 wonders. Our Guide Mr. Jack knows best time to visit the bright cave, so he arranged us to visit the cave when it is less crowded. The bright cave is the best thing during our tour. When we reached the bright cave, we are surrounded by silence and peacefulness. We really enjoy the beautiful moment.

During our stay on board, the staff and captain tried their best to entertain our needs and at the same time make sure of our safety.

The food taste is also recommended. Though I don't like vegetable, but looking at the vegetable dish makes me want to try and the taste is so nice and delicious that makes me forget that I don't like vegetable. One small note on the food, if you don't like cilantro, you better tells your guide as most of the food is using cilantro.

Also thanks to Jack Thang and on board crews that make our stay pleasant, enjoyable and memorable.

At last, combination on the natural beauty of Halong Bay, the good care of the guide and crews make this trips are so highly recommended to be on "has to go" list...

“Halong bay spectacular”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our tour group stayed for a night on a Marguerite cruise on the awe inspiring (insert other adjectives) halons Bay.
The accommodation and service on the boat was excellent and we were shown many fantastic sights and looked after.
There was an issue with the settling of bills where it seems that staff were using conversion rate tricks to charge a little more for drinks.

“Excellent treatment”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Best of all was the excellent treatment of the ship's staff, the guide and the person in charge of managing the reserve. They made our stay unforgettable. We were stayed in Hanoi and they picked us up at the hotel, free of charge, and they carried us to Ha Long Bay and returned us back next day. The ship's facilities were correct; the food was very good and varied. With us coincided a vegetarian man that the agency didn’t warn that he needed special menu and they fussed over in order to prepare him a proper meal. The painting of the ships, now all in white, is because Ha Long Bay is one of the seven natural wonders of the world since last year, and they had forced to paint them in that way. It is worth kayaking around the bay, included within the activities. Undoubtedly, our stay at the Marguerite Junk has been one of the best experiences we've ever had. Strongly recommended.

“Perfect way to experience beautiful Halong Bay”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We did the 3 day/2night cruise. Our first night was on a larger boat with nicer facilities. Had to transfer to their slightly smaller boat on the second night due to technical problems. Even though this boat was not as high standard the food was still good and the cocktails were fantastic. We actually had a better time on the smaller boat as only 12 of us and more of a social atmosphere. Great mix of nationalities and age groups. The best part for us was the tour guide, Thang. He was very welcoming and speaks excellent English and was happy to share his knowledge of Vietnam and it's history with our group. He would have to be up there with the best tour guides we had in Vietnam. One of the ladies in our group had been quite ill before the cruise and the staff on the boat couldn't have been more helpful. They brought her special meals and sat with her when she wasn't able to join the group. This is not a luxury cruise but good value for money and a lot of fun with plenty of fresh food. Halong Bay is spectacular and this cruise was one of the highlights of our Vietnam trip.
