Great day tour. It is a very long day (I think we got back around 7/7:30) so I wouldn’t plan anything in the evening. Benjamin and Ladyboy were fantastic hosts for our private tour. Benjamin was very informative and went on the cave walk with us to give more insight. NOTE: We booked a Private Tour which included a private van from Hanoi City to Ha Long Bay as well as a private tour in the caves. It does NOT include a private boat, you will likely be placed with a group of 20-30 people.

We had a wonderful experience on this tour. Our guide Harry was amazing and made the entire journey memorable for us. The cruise ship was in great condition and the food was lovely too. We were vegetarians and were given a good few options to eat. Kayaking in the halong bay was a bucket list moment and the tour of the caves was made even more interesting thanks to Harry's fun tidbits. Would definitely recommend everyone to go with them.

A wonderful day in magnificent Halong bay. Everything was very well organized. The bus trip from Hanoi, the boat tour with lunch in Halong bay, a rowing boat trip into naturally tunnels under these massive rocks and the visit of an amazing cave. Special thanks to our wonderful tour guide Cương who made a six star experience out of a five star day!

The tour was amazing, I definitely recommend it. The scenery was incredible and lhe tour guide was great, always involves taking pictures and even had a drone with him to take cool videos. Definitely worth it.

I can't say enough about how having a guide like Viet made our trip so much more fun and interesting than if we had planned on our own. He was extremely knowledgeable, super conscientious and a lot of fun
