The two day cruise in Halong Bay was one of the best things we did in Vietnam. The boat was very nice. The cabins had dark wood and big windows. We also enjoyed the balcony where we took a lot of photos from. After our kajak tour we went in the hot tup and drank some happy hour drinks. The staff was very friendly without being too much.

Enjoyed the biking and the steep hike (view was worth it)! The boat ride, not so much - around 1.30hrs sitting under the sun. It was pretty hot so make sure you bring a hat and sunblock. Overall, it was good. Our tour guide Zuy (Frank) was knowledgable and fun. He adjusted the itinerary that fit to our liking :)

This is a must do activity when in Hanoi! Do not miss it! The view after climbing 500 steps is just unparalleled and beautiful!! The 1 hour boat ride though the green fields surrounding by hills is just splendid! Highly highly recommended activity!! Our guide Mr Kay (Mr K?) is just awesome!

The trip was amazing and the scenery beyond mesmerizing . The whole trip was really organized and even though the boat trip was cancelled, they provided an alternative in order for us to expereinece it to the fullest . Our guide Franky (Dyi) was great !

Best time to travel during pandemic. Very little tourist. Less stressful and frustration. Bad for tourist companies but it was great for me
