My cruise to Halong Bay was great! I booked through EcoTours because I wanted a cruise with environmentally ethical policies. The company they matched us with picked us up in a van from our homestay in Hanoi and drove us to the bay. Our cruise started with a delicious lunch, followed by 3 activities. The first was a beautiful cave, the second a chance to kayak or rowboat in a secluded spot of Halong bay (my friend and I saw wild monkeys!) and the third was to hike a mountain and dip your feet into the water a beach. Our tour guide, Phuong, was fantastic. She was enthusiastic and helpful, and spoke great English. Overall, it was an amazing trip. My only suggestion would be to make our destinations in Halong bay slightly longer, because there is too much to see!

Amazing service from Alexander Somg, we were picked up from our hotel quickly and he was kind and welcoming. The day was full of fun activities and our host Alexander was helpful and had lots of information about the sites. Good way to see the bay in one day if you're short on time. Thank you!

Mr Hung was very funny and informative on the tour. Telling jokes and legends along the way to the harbour. Gave us a quick crash course on kayaking as well as recommendation on places to eat when we got back to Hanoi. Highly recommend, was a good laugh.

I book 1 day tour to Halong Bay with Go asia travel company The tour guide picked me up quite soon and also no need to wait for long time in the bus. Harry( An or Anh, i don't hear clearly) us very friendly, informative and sense of humor. He gave us some interesting fact about Vietnam on the bus and each destination also Halong Bay is super beautiful. The cave, the island and floating village are activities we did during the tour. When I see directly Halong Bay from my eyes, i can understand why it was recognized by Unesco as New Seven Wonder in the World
