Luxurious Cruise with comfortable transport
Trip started with comfortable limousine, fit for 7-8 persons with wifi onboard. Took 2.5hours to reach the pier. Cruise journey was pleasant with stunning Halong Bay view. Food was great however I’ve a 3yrs old kid who didn’t really enjoy the food as it’s more towards fine dining. Other than that everything was perfect! Reach hotel around 7:30pm, just in time for dinner.

One of the nicest trips
For us it was one of the most impresive places to visit while our trip in Vietnam. The excursion was well organized, the guide was very welcoming and nice and with a good english. The only thing which could be improved would be the food at the lunch buffet. The rest of the visit was impecable even under rain.

A beautiful way to see Halong Bay
This day trip has been the highlight of my time in Vietnam. It is such an amazing way to experience what Halong Bay has to offer. Amazing food, comfortable transfer and the most lovely crew helped to make this trip memorable.

Great cruise
From the time we were picked up to the time that we were dropped off. It was first class all the way. The amount the company charged is more expensive than the other companies. However, it is worth every single penny. First of all, we traveled in a luxurious van on the the new highway which took us half the time to reach Ha Long Bay compared to traveling on the old highway. Secondly, there was air conditioning in the dining rooms on the boat. If you find it too hot outside, you can stay inside to enjoy the scenery. And the five course lunch that was provided, was delicious. Staff were very courteous too. It was a relaxing and enjoyable trip. Needless to say Ha Long Bay is beautiful.

Pleasant experience with the best people!
We booked this tour a day before the actual trip itself. A few minutes later, the tour agency messaged us and asked for some special request/food allergies that they should note. Very good communication! The pickup service was on time, and we even arrived about 10 minutes late but they still waited for us. The tour guide can speak fluent English. The posted itinerary was followed throughout the trip. The cruise ship is relatively okay, as well as its crew and staff. The food is so good, you will not be disappointed! But take note that every drink has its fee (3$ each), so better think first before getting the pineapple/mango juice during meals. It's better to check the weather first before going, because during our first day, it was raining so hard and we had to wait for the rain to stop before going back to the cruise ship. Overall, this tour will definitely be a memorable experience especially if you're with the best people! My friends and I recommend this tour :)

A walk through history and boating
A must do for all those who tour Vietnam. A walk in the ancient capital followed by an awesome buffet lunch. The boating was a major surprise. Didn't expect the experience to be so good. Just go for it!

Comfortable vechicle and nice tour guide
Combination of Trang An boat tour and Mua cave with stunning view, no one will persuade you to buy souvenier during boat trip, worth every penny.

Halong Bay Cruise - I Would Definitely Recommend
The speedy minibus that took us to Halong Bay from Hanoi was very nice and very comfy with reclining massage chairs for seats and bottled water. We stopped once there and once back for a toilet break at what seemed to be a pearl sales outlet but weren’t there very long. We had a wonderful day out in Halong Bay. The boat was lovely and comfortable. The group wasn’t too big. There were loungers outside, an air conditioning bar area on the top deck and a separate restaurant/lounge area on the bottom deck. Staff were friendly and polite and the gentleman in charged came around a few times to check if there was anything we needed in between activities. He also gave us a talk at the start of the trip with lots of information about the area and our itinerary for the day. There was a sit down meal about midday, a movie if you wanted to watch, a boat trip through a cave in one of the mountains, kayaking and swimming and then food making and a buffet later on. I would definitely recommend this trip. Thank you for a lovely experience.

Exploring Pu Luong reserve with Tommy
I warmly recommend this tour provider. I spent 3days/2nights on the Pu Luong tour, and now I know perfection exists. The hotel was amazing, with a marvellous swimming pool, and the staff was so kind. The activities were delightfull: hiking in the natural reserve where people still live in a traditional way, walking through lovely rice terrace and enjoying a magical waterfall where I could swim. Above all, my guide Tommy was exceptional. He made everything to make sure I felt being a special guest, in a friendly manner. His English is perfect so I could exchange (and drink 😉) with local people. Moreover he is a clever man, who respects his region, local people and his family. It is a real pleasure so explore the region with him. So if you want to discover the preserved countryside of Vietnam, far away from mass tourism, do not hesitate one second, book a tour with "Eco Travel go Green Vietnam" and ask Tommy to be your guide. See you next year Tommy 😁😁
