What people are saying about Quang Ninh

wonderful experience. I highly recommend. the boat and the staff are excellent and allow you to take full advantage of your few days in the bay by taking magnificent photos. a moment out of time. cons: Hanoi shuttle <> ha long = 2 places only when there were 2 of us with 2 children. no sails hoisted, lack of clarity in the information given by the organizer on the day's activities and when will we be back on the boat. price of drinks on board too high (Parisian prices!)

HaLong Bay is definitely worth a visit for the stunning views. This is a great value one day trip that includes kayaks, cave tour, boat cruise and meals (drinks extra). Only small complaint is late pickup in the morning, but everything else was great. It’s a long drive but that was expected. Would recommend.

The guide is too professional and a very kind boy, I loved it, It was a Tour that everything was too calm, we did not see things running and above all very punctual when picking us up at the Hotel and leaving us, Everything was really perfect

The absolute best day trip you can do if you visit Hanoi! This was definitely the best part of the whole trip. So magical and beautiful, you won't regret it! Superb guide in Bam as well. Very pleased!

The guide was thorough and easy to understand. It was nice to be able to pick up and drop off near the hotel when I was staying at a hotel in the old city area.
