It was a real great experience having a day trip with them.

The trip was awesome, the views are pretty. The tour guide did his best to explain and guide us throughout the trip. I was bringing my parents and the activities were suitable for them. Little bit of walking inside the cave, but mostly inside the cruise or boat. Will come back Halong Bay again for an overnight cruise to enjoy the beautiful scene over there.

Very Good Tour!

We had a 1 day cruise with Halong Bay Day Tour to see what Ha Long Bay had to offer. We went island hopping through the different islands and enjoyed the different caves that were truly marvels of mother nature. We also went snorkeling for a few hours and had lunch on the boat. The people on the cruise were really warm and friendly. We also made a few friends who have been going around Vietnam and that was entertaining.

My fiancé and myself went on a this one day Halong Bay Day Tour.

The bus with A/C picks you up from your hotel, takes you to a bus stop halfway to to Halong Bay. Make sure you get the beef banh mi sandwich from at your first stop.... it’s delicious! When you arrive at Halong Bay, you get on your boat and you take off. They bring you out several dishes and you get to do a tour in the caves when you dock. After the guided tour, your next stop is where you get to kayak. I recommend kayaking like we did. Overall the one day cruise is highly recommended.

Great experience with Charming Tours!

Good seafood lunch, our tour guide was very informative and did a great job explaining the various places. Highly recommend this one day trip if you’re pressed for time. A good tip would be to get the bamboo boat instead of the kayak so you can sit and relax while enjoying the view. If you’re adventurous the kayak is okay as well if it doesn’t tire you out because you only get 45 mins to kayak out into the vast space and come back to the jetty. Overall, Halong Bay is a bucket list trip when in Hanoi!

We did a day trip to Halong Bay

We did a day trip to Halong Bay with AZ. We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the boat and set off to see some amazing scenery. The highlight for me was the cave that we went into, it was like another world. Happy, our tour guide was very informative and made our day go smoothly, and true to his name he did it all with a smile. It was a very long day, driving from Hanoi central but well worth.
