What people are saying about Quang Ninh

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.

The Tourguide was funny! He really gave good tips what to do in Hanoi also! He also included everyone (when we were standing at another corner he came all the Way to us and explained everything again)! Really friendly

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!
