Good: "It was a enjoyable experience to participate in a 2D1N cruise with pick up and return from a hotel in the Old Quarter in Hanoi. The guides were fluent in English. The program was well managed and adequate time given for each event e.g. kayaking, visit to Amazing Cave, meals, rest time, etc. Halong Bay itself was an amazing experience and has to be seen to fully appreciated. The transfer boats and the cruise boat appeared well maintained and were clean and comfortable with the use of life jackets fully promoted. My room was smaller than those in the pictures in the brochure but still comfortable with the double bed practically filling the cabin.
The guide and crew appeared seasoned professionals who knew what they were doing and did it with practiced excellence! Will remember this for a while to come! "
