We had a wonderful experience on the full-day trip! Our guide was very fun and informative, and we got a very thorough look at Halong Bay through the boat trip, and excursion around the islands, and the cave hike.

Tour guide was good, the cruise and caves part was nice. The cruise charges for drinks but were not upfront about this which was tricky. Every time you go on excursion and come back, they have drinks waiting, but the costs or potential for charging customers was never explicitly mentioned until they come for collection at the end of the tour. Also, they don't allow you to bring your own drinks on the trip which was just setting up their customers to be ripped off.

What's a spectacular sceneries! Ha Long Bay was much more than we expected. Visiting the Tien Cung Cave was a great surprise. It's definitely worth for visiting.

Trip well organised and the guide knew his stuff. Kept to time, which is important and not always the case. The only downside was some of the food on the boat could have been better. Pre cooked prawns were only slightly reheated. However, the whole fresh fish was excellent and well cooked. All uneaten food (including "whole" leftovers on people's plates) were put back on the serving dishes by the staff clearing up. If this was for them to take away later then fine, but it left me with a question about what might become of it - reheated again for next boat trip?
Overall a trip worth doing, and much better than the overnight cruise which we also looked into.

We have decided long time if go there for one or for two days. Finally we have gone for one day and I would say that is enough time to kanoing, cave visit etc. I can really recommend that trip, especially in that days with low traffic in that area.
