The Ha long bay full-day tour was fantastic. The tour guide picked us up from the hotel. We drove to the port by a mini bus. It was a two hour long journey. Then we boarded a beautiful cruise. We were sailing for about an hour or so. The tour guide showed and explained to us about all the beautiful rocks, their varied shapes and the meaning behind it. Then he took us to the marvellous Sung Sot caves. The external view from the caves was breathtaking. It was serene and all worth visiting for at least once. We then headed to our boat and had a lunch. The feast was mouth watering with all the seafood cuisines and their authentic spring rolls, etc. They also offered a vegetarian meal for vegetarians. After sailing for sometime, we went to a beach where we took a dip in the waters for sometime. Towards the end of the trip, we witnessed a beautiful sunset with some wine and french fries. :) All in all, It was a lovely day!

The car drive from Hanoi to Ha along Bay was quite lengthy, but definitely worth it!! As soon as we arrived, we boarded the boat and had a generous lunch with a vegetarian option. It was very delicious! Then we took off and drove about one hour to get to our first attraction: a cave with stalagmites and stalactites. Ha Long Bau is as stunning as the pictures in the internet and I would make sure to see it if you can. During our second activity we had the chance to paddle a Kajak through a cave and past a few beautiful islands. This was our favourite part of the tour. Afterwards we we offered a few snacks, such as fruit and biscuits. It was an amazing day overall! Before you go, you should know though, that only a very small water bottle is included in the price. There is the option to pay for drinks on the boat, but you can also bring your one. However, single use plastic bottles are not allowed.

Our time with Renea Cruises to Ha Long Bay was incredible! Our tour guide, Duc, was incredible and you are in for a great 2 days if you have him as your host! Incredible activities, food and scenery awaits! Great time was had by all and we hope to go again!

We had a lovely experience and it was an absolutely incredible day! However my partner got sick after eating the shrimp onboard, so it might be a good idea to skip that. Otherwise we were very happy with the day and would do it again!

The whole trip was amazing, Duc was a great guide and the food was fantastic!
