Halong Bay is definitely a place worth visiting. Our tour guide, sugar, is also very friendly and responsive to all our needs.
I purchased a 2 night cruise as a honeymoon gift for good friends and the feedback was so disappointing. Rooms weren't clean with evidence of mold, staff very unfriendly. They were even yelled when selecting a window table for lunch and told to move, only to find the crew sitting there a few minutes later. At night all the boats are moored together making it extremely noisy hearing loud music for hours. They ended up leaving after one night and I'm left utterly embarrased for purchasing such a terrible gift.
Comfortable bus, cosy cabins and delicious and ample variety of food made visiting Halong Bay even more of a delight. We had an excellent and personable guide (Peter) and the crew go beyond to look after you. Itinerary is packed without feeling rushed. Would recommend.
Tour: 3 days and 2 nights in Ha long Bay. Average stay in a averages ship. The pickup took very long time and on the way to Ha long they stop at a shop for more than 30 min - only for buying something that was 2-3 time the price as in Ha noi. The services personal onboard only understood a little of English and the cooking class and fruit carving was wast of time. On the way back they made us wait for 75 min from arriving in the harbor before our transport began back to Ha noi. On the way back they stoped again in the shop - waist of time again. When we arrived in Ha noi we were just drop off far from our hotel and then we could walk with all our luggages on our own. If you take this cruise then you need good time. Don't pay too much for it is averages.
Enjoyed our 2D1N V'Spirit cruise. Pickup bus from/to hotel is clean & comfortable. Our guide, Peter is very knowledgeable, helpful & friendly. Food & program for the whole trip is very well organised. Would definitely recommend this cruise to friends going for Halong bay cruise
