My friends and I recently used this company for the 2 day, 1 night trip. It was fantastic. From the start, we got lost and went to the wrong harbour - Chuyen (tour leader) - quickly arranged for us to be picked up. The boat itself was beautiful and the rooms were a good size - the bathrooms were great with lovely hot showers and the beds were soft. Everything was lovely and clean. They provided delicious seafood throughout and a fantastic vegetarian selection for my friend. Chuyen was knowledgeable about everything and all the activities were accessible for all. A great mix of relaxation time and active time!

This tour was very good, time keeping a little off but that was due to one group from Malaysia constantly being late to activities and meals. The kayaking and caving were nice. Really liked the very attentive manager Chunyun. When we were taking the bus back to Hanoi, we asked him to promise that we wouldn’t be taken ‘shopping’ brought into a mass organised Vietnamese tourist scam shop and left there for 30 mins while our driver had lunch. He reassured us when waving us off after our cruise that we wouldn’t and I find myself writing this review while sitting outside a bus of the very scam shop right now. Quite a disappointment after what was a very nice trip.

This was a good excursion for our family. It’s very busy on halong bay but the boat was clean and had a great crew. Only complaint would be the smoking by crew in areas that were supposed to be non smoking. Would be nice if crew spoke a little more English as they cater to English speaking tourists.

The boat is really clean and the rooms are really comfortable! Chuyen was a great host - really thoughtful touches and really look after the people onboard. The bay itself - is really crowded and is hard to squeeze in amongst all the other boats but secret Halong cruise try their best! Dao Linh was also very helpful with our booking. They helped us with the shuttle there from Hanoi which was on time and perfect (would not recommend the awkward toilet/ souvenir top half way though) and they also helped us with the car to Hai Pong. I would recommend Secret HaLong cruise to my friends!!

After an extensive research on which Ha long bay cruise to book, we finally decided on this one and were more than happy with our choice! The boat is very nice and not too big ( just 20 guests in total), so it has a very nice atmosphere. We were also very happy with the activities during the tour - especially loved the kayaking and the visit to the cave during the first day and the tai chi lesson at sunrise during the following day. The tour route was planned to try avoiding the crowds as much as possible, so we were happy with that, especially on the first day we were not bothered by big crowds of people. Our guide Chuyen was really great! He was very nice and helpful, told us of a lot of interesting information about Ha long bay and made sure that we enjoyed the activities without being in a rush. The whole crew on the boat was really professional and took great care of its guests. Overall would definitely recommend this cruise! It’s a great way to experience the beautiful Ha long bay.
