you really should consider this tour. the pick up was on time but it is a long time until you get to the bay (the bus was a bit slow). when you get there it is really worthy! the view in tiptop island is amazing
Must see destination

beautiful environment. The nature is beautiful and nice looking. The best part was the boat trip at sea. The destinations themselves, especially Titop Island, are a tourist attraction
A well-spent day at Halong Bay
, Oct 2019
We were lucky to get some sunny weather on our cruise day. We were picked up from our hotel lobby for a comfortable 3 hour drive in an AC minivan to Halong Bay. In between, we got a bio-break in a pearl farm where we got a small tour of how pearls are cultivated and farmed in and around this area. Once we reached our boat, we were served some delicious Vietnamese lunch. After lunch we visited two caves (one water cave, where we could either kayak or take a bamboo boat) and the Ti Top Island. We came back to the starting point while the sun set in this beautiful backdrop. We were dropped back to our hotel in Hanoi by around 8:30 PM. Our guide Ana was the sweetest, making sure she explained all the trivia and information about each place we visited. We had a great day!
Amazing Tour !!!!!!!

Without doubt one of the best day tour in Halong Bay. Pick up from our hostel was well coordinated by out Tour guide ( Mr. Ha ). he did his best introduction about the tour & country while on the way to Halong bay by bus. super comfortable A/C bus. water bottle provided inside the bus. after 3 hours of drive with a 10 min stop to stretch legs we reached to Oyster Farm , around 1 PM we were warmly welcomed by Cruise staffs on board. very huge lunch, different varieties of foods.1st stop at sung sot cave, 2nd stop at Tip top island, additionally we were able to do Kayaking in Halong Bay & fast transfer back to Hotel. many thanks again to Mr. Ha (Tour Guide ) who stayed with us till end of the tour. i would recommend this tour to others...

Mixed Feelings
, May 2019
Mr. Lee at the Hanoi office was very helpful. The tour guide (I think her name was Lin) was not the best. Her English was limited and she did not provide much information other than to get us from place to place. the bus rambles around the old quarter for hourss picking up you could be on the bus from 0730-1230 before you get to the boat; and you leave by 6 pm, so it is not as long as advertised. For some reason the trip back is shorter as the expressway is used - which is should be for both wasy. The food on the boat was just adequate. Hygiene conditions seem questionable. In the afternoon they passed with a tray of cold drinks and coffee and after consumed, charged for it. Understood that pops and alcohol would be charged but it should be clear that coffee etc is not an offering but for charge. They leave an envelope on the table at the end for tips. An annoying souvenir seller was on the cruise and would not take no for an answer. Then she kept touching my arm to get me to shop ! The tour guide is more smiley and friendly at the end when she suggests tips for driver and guide. Unsmiling driver; one slam on breaks on the highway; one stall and had to open the engine to get the bus going. The scenery was great which was the purpose of the trip, but the method needs great improvement.

It was a pretty long trip but enjoyed every minute of it. Our guide "Tiger" was such a character and he made every minute of the tour memorable and enjoyable. I recommend it and i would like to give our guide an A+
Excellent cruise

James was a great tour guide, very polite even though we didn't want to quit kayaking. Food was good even for those who didn't eat seafood. They sold souvenirs on board which in hindsight was a good deal. We took a tour that went to Tip Top Mountain. The 500 step climb wasn't easy but worth the postcard view.
Halong bay in one day! No need for an overnight cruise!

Great experience, would definitely recommend if you want to spend the day on Halong Bay! I especially love the visit to Ti Top Island, where you get a very nice view I notice a lot of the other tours did not offer this, which was the main reason I picked this tour. Definitely worth it, great tour.
