If you only have a day, this is a good option. Van is a squeeze!

This tour was one of the cheaper ones to book but covered everything we wanted/needed without any additional costs. Pros: Hotel pick up and drop off. Got to see the caves, eat lunch (they cater for vegetarians), go kayaking or bamboo boating, good & knowledgable guide (Victor) with good English, good amount of time in bay if you haven’t seen limestone karsts before. Con: The van was a real squeeze, especially if you’re stuck at the back. There is pretty much no leg room and nothing fancy there, just a seat. Our driver was also not great (he got us safely there and back) as he seemed to be in too high a gear throughout the journey, making the van judder loudly constantly. He also seemed to use the throttle as of it were an on/off switch causing the van to serve back and forth. Pretty sure I had motion sickness from the driving after the day had finished (I never get sick from a boat). The journey felt long and some you’re the new express way but you get what you pay for I guess!

Great cruise, fun activities and nice crew

The cruise is really fun and worth the money. You can get picked up from your hotel to be taken to the boat house. From there you enter the boat, checking in to your room first. Then you’ll have lunch and after lunch you have activities like kayaking and cave exploring. ‘Sunset party’ afterwards with happy hour. After that there is dinner followed by squid fishing (nobody caught anything our night). The morning starts with tai chi lessons and breakfast. After breakfast you go visit the fishing village, which isn’t that spectacular. The boat ride is nice but the village itself is nothing remarkable. The trip is concluded with making your own spring roll and lunch. The trip was lots of fun, the activities were nice and fun and the crew was always friendly and there to help.

Really good expérience for a one day trip !!

The guide pick you up at your hotel so it's really comfortable. The day before, Maya from GoAsia Travel sens you some message to prépare the departure and see if everything is working well. Then the activités during the day are really Nice with the visit of 2 temples in the morning. Then, the part we prefer was the 'cruise' on the river !! It was really beautiful ! And then we also enjoyed biking to go to see a Pagoda ! So we enjoyed a lot this day and have a lot of fun !

Excellent and very well organized trip. We went on September 6.

This trip was very well planned and organized. Our guide ‘Man’ was very nice and helpful. Hotel pick and drop off in old quarter. Food was OK on the boat, nothing out of ordinary. The mini boat rides were well arranged in the Halong bay. It is a MUST See in Vietnam tour. Just amazing. Remember, it will get really hot and humid. There in no air conditioner anywhere except on the use. But still worth it. I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic way to experience great food .

Our host, Jenny, guided our small group walking through the streets of Hanoi old quarter to venues that we would never find on our own. Each dish was representative of the specific venue and their specialism. The evening culminated in a short cyclo tour around the local streets to experience the night life of the area, finishing in the area around lake Hoan Kiem. Agreat experience to be recommended.
