What people are saying about Hanoi

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!

Excellent comunication, seamless organisation and a fantastic guide

Organisation and communication were excellent. Our guide was absolutely fantastic: friendly, experienced, knowledgeable and really took care of members of our group who struggled and needed alternative arrangements to be made. Sapa is beautiful and this trek gives you a great experience of the region. They did an awesome job of avoiding the most touristy routes, so we mostly felt like we had the trails to ourselves. This is totally doable for anyone with a semi-decent level if fitness and a pair of trainers. The homestay even had wifi and hot water! The only thing that needs to be improved is the provision of drinking water: The only option was to buy plastic bottles, sometimes only small ones so we had to buy multiple. This was despite the fact that other drinking water was available (a couple of members of out group were allowed to have this, but only after threatening to complain). Overall a fantastic experience that I would highly recommend

It was so cute - Amazing stunning beautiful Perfomance

I really really loved the show. The water puppets were so cute and the scenery was so sooo beautiful. I enjoyed the traditional Vietnamese music and you really can't say anything bad about the theater. I think it's totally worth it to visit the show. Ich fand die Show super. Die kleinen Wasserpuppen sind so niedlich und die effekte und das Puppenspiel ist unglaublich süß. Das Bühnenbild war sehr hübsch und die traditionelle vietnamesische Musikuntermalung hat mir auch sehr gut gefallen. Allgemein kann ich wirklich nichts schlechtes über das Theater oder die Vorstellung sagen. Bitte beachtet die Show ist in Vietnamesisch, aber durch das Puppenspiel einfach verständlich und wundervoll anzusehen. Die Show bekommt eine definitive Empfehlung von mir.

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.

Excellent tour, Jack was outstanding tour guide

Halong Bay is a must see if you're in Vietnam! This was a great tour. The caves were amazing! The only negative I can think of is that the lady who was our guide on the bamboo boat paddled us way out into the water and then demanded a tip. I generally prefer to tip someone at the end of a service commensurate with the service they provide, and not feel basically trapped into providing a tip while in the middle of the water.
