Perfect tour if you only have a day to see Ha Long Bay. Super comfortable and quick transfer from Hanoi, lots of time in the bay as well as in an incredible cave and on an island for hiking or beach time.

Amazing tour with an amazing friendly guide who was very informative. Would definitely recommend. Stunning lunch on the boat, kayaking, cave tour and oyster farm all included.

Best time to travel during pandemic. Very little tourist. Less stressful and frustration. Bad for tourist companies but it was great for me

Was a good trip. A bit small bus from Hanoi to Halong Bay, but a very pretty view when we arrived the bay.

I am happy that I did the tour, it was amazing experience. Would highly recommend.
