What People Are Saying About Ha Long
Long pickup and journey time but worth the 2 x 4 hour bus journey. Guide was great. Boat was ok & food was exceptional. Halong Bay was everything we expected it to be: beautiful, stunning and magical. Our time there certainly made up for the long trip there and back which was broken up by a 25 minute stop at 2 great service stations with clean toilets and food, along with market stalls (high end souvenirs) galore. Amazing all round!
Small group, comfortable ride, a good driver and a nice and competent tour guide, who gave many information about life in Vietnam, History etc. When we arrived in HaLong Bay, the boat was ready to leave and to cruise to the rocks, while the excellent and sufficient food was served. We landed on a swimming ponton, where we could have the choice for kajaking by our own (always two people in one kajak) or in a rowing boat for four people, rowed by a man or woman. The impression of the rocks the tunnels and the land shape was fantastic. Returned from this excursion, the big boat cruised to a landing bridge, where we left the boat to visit a cave with different chambers. We left the cave on the opposite side of the rock and went by boat back to the starting point and went by bus back to Hanoi. The excursion is a must for tourists being in North Vietnam. The company, which organized the tour is a good choise.
The best trip in our life .Relaxing and beautiful trip. The scenery is incredible and this particular tour went to more secluded areas so scenery was unspoiled. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful- rooms were comfortable and the food was great. Frank was our tour guide and a highlight of the trip!
Basically we stucked in the traffic for more than 3 to 4 hours to and forth halong bay. The shuttle bus was full and very timid seat area, really feel uncomfortable sitting with long hour journey. Seeing the halong bay at the cruise was amazing, taking lots of beautiful pictures, food was ok but not so wow. At the floating village, the guide didn't even ask us whether our packages include kayak or not, he just direct us to the sampan, we paid extra for kayak not sampan. Kinda pissed off with the guide. Luckily the boat rower was kind and took many pictures for us, well at least we could relax and enjoyed the view. The guide was bit rushing towards the end of tour, especially in the tien long cave, kept asking everyone to walk faster without letting us stop to take pictures. Another traffic on our way home again, we reached home around 9pm plus... best to go for 2days 1night instead, not so rush.
It is so scenic and it is one of the places that everyone should visit in their lifetime. The tour guide was amazing, the food was very good, activities included Visiting cave, Cooking Class, Fishing Village tour and swimming , had the most fantastic time very good value for money . Dragon gold Cruises were wonderful boat, the crew were very fun.
