Beautiful ride through Halong Bay.. unfortunately about 1/4 of the time was lost due to the transport.. the tour starts at around 2 p.m. and at 11 a.m. the following day you are already back in the bay at the last point - the meal Madness ;) really great :)

Would have been a 3 star rating if the crew and overall experience would have not been good. First of all, the boat from the pictures is not reflecting reality. Just set your expectations right. Also on the 2nd day you need to leave the room at 9:30, which is not so nice. But overall, totally loved it and it’s totally worth. Dong our guide was amazing.

J’ai passé un agréable séjour sur le bateau Renea. Le guide Chong dans l’autobus était incroyable et Duc également une fois sur le bateau. Faire une croisière dans une zone moins touriste était vraiment super. La sortie en kayak était plaisante et nous nous sommes bien amusés. Le guide a même accepté de faire déplacer le bateau pour que l’on puisse se baigner dans une zone que l’on préférait. Le soir, pas de chance pour la pêche au squid mais nous en avons vu. Le seul gros bémol est l’attente interminable entre la sortie du bateau et le retour en autobus. Je comprends que cela demande beaucoup de logistique avec le groupe suivant qui arrive mais c’est vraiment très long.
