We did this tour on a cold and misty day and it was great... The comfort on the boat was terrific and we were blown away with the quality and amount of food that was cooked fresh on board. The there's the bay itself. My wife and I have traveled extensively, and were hoping the bay would be as good as the publicity that promotes it...and it is... Not only did we spend a magical couple of hours cruising between the limestone island, we stopped at a cave complex and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The tour guide, driver and boat crew were all friendly and informative which contributed to an excellent experience. HOWEVER, it isn't all good... The trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay is about 200k and takes around 3.5 hrs, so the time from pickup to dropoff at the hotel is about 12 hours. 7:30am to 7:30pm... Having said that, the trip cost about $100 each (including lunch) and the Mercedes van that Viator used was comfortable. We also had a comfort stop at very clean facilities both way, so in summary its definitely worth the effort.

We had booked the Halong Jasmine 'junk' for one night, with our travel guide book suggested unforgettable sunsets and swimming oportunities! Unfortunately, we managed to find a couple of days which were very cold and somewhat misty. A great pity as the views of these iconic islands was stunning, and in the sun would have been fabulous.
The boat was excellent with a small 22 room capacity making it both spacious and intimate. Our room had airconditioning which we used to heat the room, and its own en-suite shower etc. it also had a little balcony to sit outside - if only the sun had been shining ! Great food, good service and a friendly crew. we even managed to do some Ti-Chi in the morning under the instruction of a young man who must surely have been double jointed ! it was a good place to meet some friends who we kept bumping into in different places during the remainder of our trip.
The only reason this is not a 5 star experience was because of the weather .

We booked our Ha Long Bay overnight on boat trip via Halong Bay Cruises - Day Tours, and it was a super efficient team and punctual. Their bus was good and the boat was also in a good condition and well-designed cabin. Ha Long Bay is a worth-visited attraction and the food available here just coming too yummy and really nature, tasty. Would love to come back

Halong Bay had always been on my bucket list and it didn't disappoint. It is just wonderful. I booked a two night cruise before we even had set foot in Vietnam. I wanted to make sure I had the full experience. However, on reflection I would have to say that you really don't miss much on a one day tour. The way it works is that on the second day you are taken off the main boat onto a day boat. This then takes you to three different places. One where you can go kayaking, one where you can go for a swim and the third visit is to a pearl farm. As it was too cold for swimming and we didn't want to kayak we spent an hour and half to two hours at each of the first two places just lounging around. Lunch was served at the second stop. After visiting the pearl farm you rejoin the main boat which has already returned to port and collected a new lot of day passengers. Note you keep your cabin. On the second day you return to port as if you were on a one day tour. Hence if your not into kayaking and the weather is too cold for swimming then one day is fine. Mind you after the frenetic pace of Hanoi we did find the solitude of the second day very restful.
