What people are saying about Quang Ninh

Very chill and beautiful halong bay cruise! Taking a halong bay tour on Renea cruises, the ship itself was beautiful and comfortable, with each room being luxurious with comfy beds, good air conditioning and even bathtub with ha long bay view! The crew were also very friendly and helpful, especially the tour guide, Duc, who was extremely friendly, always chatting with us and telling us jokes, as well as being very informative teaching us about how ha long got its name and how it was formed many years ago. The beautiful boat, stunning views and friendly staff made the trip very enjoyable :)

It was a great trip. Our guide Son (I hope I have spelled his name correctly) was very knowledgeable and his command of English was very good. He talked about Halong Bay telling us some interesting facts. First we stopped of at the place where they were cultivating pearls, then we got on the boat to Halong Bay starting first with lunch. We sailed passing by few landmarks such as Fighting cocks. Then we had 40mins for kayaking and then we visited Dong Thien Cung cave.

Full day tour went smoothly, guide was knowlegeable, informative, bus driver was cautious and drove safely. Halong bay cruise and cave visit is a must do for all first time visitors to Hanoi. Keep up the good work!

Beautiful nature, exciting activities (kayaking, cave visit), this is a much recommended trip. The lunch was delicious, the tour guide knowledgeable and friendly, we enjoyed this tour a lot!

It was such a fun and relaxing day. Our guide Harry was so helpful and friendly. The seafood lunch whilst cruosing Halong Bay was amazing
