Group trip (24 travellers per group)
This is a well-run Halong day cruise from Hanoi, for a good price. The group size is small which is unusual at this price point. This boat has a friendly and reliable crew that speaks good English, and the food on board is yummy. A special seafood lunch will be served, with Vegetarian and Halal options available on request! You're not cruising on the water for a super long time (4 hours in total), but the pace is still relaxed and comfortable.
