based on 713 reviews

Honestly the only thought I have after the last 2 days is: I wish it didn’t end. It’s been such a great experience, off the beaten track with a small group of people on board (~8 guests), a fantastic tour guide in Nam and deliciously made food along the way from the fantastic crew. We did some kayaking and swimming, made spring rolls together, caught squid, discovered a cave on an island and overall just had a fabulous time. The thing that makes me think that this is the best one is that I’m a solo Traveller and this is the only provider that offered me my own (gorgeous) cabin without me having to pay the price for 2. Must book - must go - try to find out if you can stay 2 nights, it’s definitely worth it!!!

This was an amazing experience, outdoing all expectations. The food was way above what we expected. Our tour guide Hoang Nam Nguyen made the experience complete. He spoke amazing English and showed us all the hidden gems of the bay. Renea cruises is the only company heading to this specific part of the bay, so we had it all to ourselves, even with tourism picking up again post-Covid. Next time I am doing a tour in Vietnam, I am checking whether Renea and Nam have something available!

Ha long bay is simply beautiful!! The boat was a little old but the tour guide Duc was so lovely and really looked after us. The kayaking was lots of fun and amazing to be the only ones at the beach. The food was good and very generous portion sizes. If it’s in your budget definitely go for it but check the weather first!

Pick up at hotel, transfer to Halong Bay and return trip were on time and smooth. We very much enjoyed our cruise ship “Renea” and would have liked to spend more time in our suite and on deck. The scenery, well known from countless pictures and videos, remains unbelievable when you sail there for real.

The trip was made particularly special by our tour guide who was charming and knowledgeable! Lunch on the boat was also great.
