The two day cruise, i feel is the optimum for Halong bay. The food was amazing. We had requested for vegetarian food and it was given. The crew were amazing and the service was good. The boat itself is a bit old, but comfortable.

Dear Juicylondon, It is very sad to receive your review and we make sure this never happen again. In our website, we already public all the information about pick up point and pick up time. We only do offer pick up at hotels inside the Old Quarter and not pick up from the Apartment/AirBnb/ Homestay as it is difficult to find the address, ( sometimes airbnb besides the small alley) and there is no reception to help us check the name. It's so difficult for our tour guide to pick up. Instead of that, we have office at the centre of the old quarter which is convenient for all the customers meet up our tour guide. To make sure you are picked up, later if you come back, you can book our private tour. We surely that the quality is better than join in group tour. The whole team will keep up working to welcome you back here soon at any time. Best regards, Linda Customer Care Team of Dragonfly Cruise A member of Charming Vietnam Travel

The company had agreed to pick us up from a hotel and we paid on that basis. When we arrived in Hanoi they told us oh sorry we cant pick you up anymore. Instead we had to make a 20-minute walk to that headquarters with all of our luggage very disappointed.
