Our time with Renea Cruises to Ha Long Bay was incredible! Our tour guide, Duc, was incredible and you are in for a great 2 days if you have him as your host! Incredible activities, food and scenery awaits! Great time was had by all and we hope to go again!

Beautiful drive to Bai Tu Long Bay (part of Ha Long Bay). It is a part of Ha Long Bay with significantly fewer boats. The transfer from Hanoi worked great. Nam was a very nice attentive guide. The food on the boat was varied and delicious. Any special needs were catered for. The staff on board was extremely nice. The sleeping cabins more than exceeded our expectations - we even got a corner cabin with two windows and a balcony. Program as described in the booking. As you can see: we were more than satisfied and would book the tour again and again. Thanks to all!

The wonderful natural landscape, a magical place. Very good option 2 days, 1 night, although the ship is really only 24 hours with cabins with good dimensions and exquisite cleanliness. . We coincided with a very diverse and friendly group, magnificent weather. The charming crew, the excellent service and the magnificent guide.
