Very memorable trip. Our guide, Quang, was very knowledgeable and provided lots of history of Vietnam. He has a way of being professional yet humourous and helpful. Halong Bay is one of the new wonders of the world and it’s just breathtaking. The cabins are very nice and comfortable, the balcony was a plus! The bathroom in your room is also nicer than some hotels even. We also did visited the Sung Sot(surprise) Cave and did the evening squid fishing. The staff on board are all smiling and attentive. Food was excellent!! Great experience on Garden Bay cruise, highly recommend! Definitely a highlight from my one month trip throughout Vietnam.
We only had 1 day planned for Ha Long Bay in our trip throughout Vietnam. Quang, our guide, came to pick us up from our Hotel in Hanoi. Everything went super smoothly, they even organized another visit because we arrived at Ha Long in advance! We didn't have to plan anything or take care of anything, even our luggages were taken care of. The boat itself was very nice, we had a cabin on the second floor, with a small balcony overlooking the sea. As we only had 1 day, our shedule was tightly packed but if you didn't want to take part in the activities you could stay on the boat and chill. Quang was always friendly and smiling, as were the other crewmen. The food was great, the cabin was great, the view was great. All in all highly recommended! I can't comment on the price as we booked it in a larger package from a travel agent.
This trip was a birthday treat to myself and I honestly have not regretted the decision. My partner and I chose the 2 nights and 3 day option and were well looked after by Quang and Huyen and her crew on board from the moment we were collected from our hotel in Hanoi. They even surprised me with a birthday cake which was shared among fellow guests after dinner on the 2nd night. I have to say, the real highlight of this cruise was the food..... There was so much of it, all expertly prepared by onboard chefs and food preferences were extremely well catered for (I can't eat seafood)...... This tour company is highly recommended to all who are willing to pay a little more for extra ease and comfort. Fabulous experience!
Would like to to thank the cruise operators for the awesome experience we had from the time they picked us up to dropping us at hotel!
Our guide Kevin was really experienced and gave us outstanding experience. He even told us some nice places to eat in the old quarter and one of the dish that we tried again and again Bun Cha.
Food on the boat was tasty and there was wide variety. Our daughter who had sea food intolerances was also looked after.
Once again thanks to the operators and Kevin, our guide
Upon arrival at the Ha Long Port we were greeted right away by Hoang Lee. Hoang explained the boarding process and within short period of wait time we were aboard the Garden Bay Legend boat. There we were given the agenda for the trip ...clear and easy to understand. First order of the day ...amazing lunch starter appetizers main course and desserts!! Staff was very attentive especially our tour guide Hoang. He always spoke with a smile and always made sure we were happy with the food and accommodation. Hoang was very knowledgeable about the Ha Long area with cave tour kayaking & fishing village. Overall excellent attentive service by Hoang & his staff, food was delicious with the Vietnamese cultural flair:)) We took amazing pictures during the tour ...thank you Hoang & staff for memorable family 1st trip to UNESCO Ha Long!!
