Excellent trip, small group in a mini bus, and same group on boat to ourselves.Reviewed by: Denise J, April 2013
This is definitely worth a visit, just a shame about the 3.5 hour trip each way on the bumpiest roads in history. Had the good fortune of getting in a row boat and going through the rock formations (additional cost).Reviewed by: Colin G, April 2013
It was a great day out taking approx 12 hours. The boat ride in Halong Bay was perfect and a seafood meal was supplied. There were only 5 of us on the day trip and we had a boat to ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who doesn't really want to spend 2 or 3 days on a boat looking at the Bay, which I felt we saw most of what needed to be seen in 1 day.Reviewed by: Stephen W, April 2013
Took 4 hours by car to arrive at pier to took ferry. A simple lunch with combination of cucumber salad, seafood, fried meat. Drinks exclusive. The lime rocks are quite fascinating which as you travel along/between, each angle is different and is a different picturesque for photos. Is like a never ending business. After travelling along for few hours, we end up at the Cave with icicles etc which worth watching. Arrived back in Hanoi and hotel around 8pm so you better bring along some snacks with you if you have stomach problems. Other than this, scenery was enjoyable.Reviewed by: Paprika, Hong Kong, May 2013
Guide arrived at our hotel early which was great. The guide was very knowledgeable but not as sociable. All in all it was a good day out.Reviewed by: Andrew C Chew C, May 2013
