Amazing service on a special boat

If you can afford it, it is so worth doing a private cruise of Halong Bay. I did a two night cruise... read more

We rented a private boat for 2 days. Thought it would be a way to avoid the crowds (there are many!) and experience the beauty of the area. This site is over-sold. Too many boats on the same track. A shame. Also, maybe unrealistically, we had visions of finding secluded coves and swimming in the sea. Wrong. The water is not clean/clear or suitable for this. What a shame. Cleaner seas and beaches elsewhere. Our 2 room private boat didnt seen equipped for long trips. There wasnt enough shade on the upper deck for 4 people, not enough seating in cabin for when it rained. The crew were very pleasant, but didnt seem to anticipate. They were always reacting. The caves were amazing, the kayaking was fun (although beware speedboats and the wake they create). I think you can do all of this in 4/6 hours. 2/3 days is too much.

Concluding our trip, we spent our last couple of days on a private cruise in Halong Bay with Minh and his team. From start to finish, we had a blast. Between having a whole boat to ourselves, private tour in the bay, private cooking lesson, squid fishing, and great service, we couldn't have asked for more.

We loved our two-night excursion aboard one of Legend’s junk boats. The staff was simply outstanding. They anticipated our every need and made the entire experience memorable.

Our butler, Minh, has the perfect ability to always be available and yet to never intrude. He led us on a kayak trip to a deserted beach and then gave us plenty of space to be “alone”.

Our waiter, Hai, was also terrific. He always had a smile on his face and he even gave us a Tai Chi lesson on deck one morning.

We highly recommend this group.

Four of us had a private boat cruise in October in Halong Bay on one of the Bhaya Legend boats, a truly unforgettable experience. Our "butler" Minh Tran was excellent in coordinating all the activities on and off the boat, and providing useful and colorful information about the area.The accomondations were very comfortable. Meals were delicious and plentiful. It was a journey to paradise!
