The tour itself was nice, my second time in halong bay. The kayak was a lot of fun. However the tour guide, Benjamin, was constantly making gay jokes, such as referring to the driver as a “ladyboy” because he was older and not yet married. Benjamin also made other jokes that made me quite uncomfortable.
very good

We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Halong Bay qnd the caves. Our tour guide was excellent. We enjoyed a great lunch on the cruise boat while viewing the amazing structures in the bay. Being able to enjoy a row boat cruise in a small section of the bay was great. Walking thru an area of the caves was breathtaking. Really incredible to walk thru the caves and see the magnificent limestone structures. A must to see

Excellent Trip Right from Hotel Pick Up to Drop. Every Minutest Detail Was Fully Well Taken Care of. Will Surely Recommend
Must see

Our guide was knowledgable, humorous and took care of us well. The lunch on the boat was so much more than we anticipated-- beautiful, expansive and delicious! And of course, the sites of the Bay-- our guide gave us multiple opportunities to get just the right picture and to take in all the beauty the bay and the cave had to offer. We highly recommend this tour as part of a visit to Vietnam.
Chill and easy day tour

A great tour overall! Our tour guide, Fic, gave us the rundown on many cultural aspects of Vietnam, and delivered a raw and sarcastic commentary during the trip (which was amazing, btw). There's not much walking involved so you won't break a sweat enjoying the amazing views of Halong Bay and the stalagmites/stalactites in the cave! 1) Take note that the food on the ferry is shared in tables of 6, so you may be sharing with strangers if your group is small 2) Remember to bring cash if you decide to take the bamboo boat ride; a local suggested that you tip ~10% of the ticket price. They love USD, though.
Great tour

Great tour guide and tour with interesting history and information. Great driver. Big drive and day for one place to visit but all worth it. The food on the cruise was amazing and the caves were a great visit.
Trip is good, but the "bus" is sucks to max
, Oct 2019
The trip at halong bay was a great experience but the bus that we traveled hanoi-halong bay and halong bay-hanoi was terrible. The seats are SO CRAMP and so SOLID HARD, straight up right, making our waist and ass pain like no tomorrow. I even shifted to an empty seat but the driver asked me to f off to my original seat in no way polite. The seat remained empty the entire journey back to hanoi and we have ache all over our body.
An unforgettable experience!

With pickup from Hanoi, this tour offer an amazing chance to visit Halong Bay! The drive was a little long (as expected) so bring snacks/entertainment.. You'll probably spend most of the return trip sleeping though. Great food options for lunch and happily catered to dietary needs and preferences. If it wasn't for the inconvenience surrounding our transport in the morning, this trip would've been a flawless 5/5.
Great tour

Awesome guide and driver. Long day, but worth it! I recommend this tour if you have a short time in Hanoi!
