The boat and rooms are exactly as pictured, comfortable and clean. The food and level of service was well above what we expected.
Our guide Noi was lovely and gave us lots of information. Very helpful as well such as ordering us a taxi when we got off the boat as we weren’t going back to Hanoi.
Single use plastic has been banned from the bay so they will make you throw away/leave behind and pick up later. This is a good thing! We noticed much, much less plastic waste floating in the sea compared to other places in Asia. But it wasn’t mentioned until 5 mins before going to the boat - some people had already stocked up with bottles of water and weren’t too pleased. Water and reusable bottles are provided on the boat free of charge.
We were picked up by a bus in Hanoi, together with other cruise guests. 3,5h’s drive, but good accommodation.
The boat itself was above expectations. Nice room and bathroom.
The food (breakfast, lunch and diner) was of very good quality, served by a very friendly staff.
The activities were very well organized and fun, lead by a very funny and friendly tour guide.
The scenery in Halong Bay is fabulous, so you can be sure to go home with some beautiful pictures.
From start to finish one of the best things I did while traveling in Vietnam. The food was fantastic and the team accommodated two of our group's vegetarians. We were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi at a cost of around 582,000 VND ($25USD) return. The boat was clean and very spacious. I can't recommend highly enough. you won't regret going.
We were advised from our hotel to go to dhalong bay with this agency for a low price and good quality cruise. We were very happy to see that it was even better than we thought. Kevin (our guide) was funny and very helpful, he gave us lots of tips about the country and was very honest. View from the goat was amazing and people very nice. And most important: in that area we were really a few boats compare to the Real halong bay
We had a well-planned 2 day, 1 night cruise with Garden Bay. It felt like there were plenty of activities (hike through the caves, kayaking, swimming, trip to fishing village, cooking demonstration), but there was also plenty of time to relax and take in the magnificent scenery. Each room had a private balcony which was really nice, but you could also go sit on the top deck for amazing views as well. Tons of food available throughout the whole stay. Really nice experience with this tour group. Thank you!
