    Wonderful experience!!!
    We had a memorable 2 days 1 night on Lavender cruise in Halong Bay. The bay is really majestic with many islets around. It is the first time I ride kayak, it is quite tired but very interesting. Staffs and guide are friendly. We truly enjoyed the trip. Thanks for all.

    Wonderful Trip Through Halong Bay
    My partner and I loved our trip through Halong Bay with Majestic Cruises. Our guide, Hero, got out of the tour bus to find us and bring us to the bus from our Airbnb. The bus on the way to the bay was comfortable and Hero shared personal stories and made the drive easier. The cruise ship itself was very comfortable, the food was good, and the sights were amazing! Would definitely recommend Majestic Cruises to anyone looking to travel to Halong Bay, and if Hero is your guide you’re extra lucky!

    Exceeded All Expectations
    Halong Bay Dragon Legend 2, two night trip. We cannot say enough good about this trip in Halong and Bai Tu Long Bay. From start to finish the organisation was excellent, check in, transfer of luggage and embarkment were all managed with efficiency and friendliness. Our tour guide, JD, had remembered the names of the entire group of 38, within half an hour. He continued to be an attentive and gracious host, making sure everyone was looked after and happy at all times. The boat had fantastic facilities. Lovely big cabins, bathroom with a large shower and even a double bath by a picture window so you can bathe and not miss a minute of the scenery. The rooms were air conditioned, very much needed and a welcome relief from the heat and humidity. We had so much food, beautifully served on deck under the shade of a canopy. Much praise to the chef and his team. We were kept supplied with water and regularly encouraged to return the bottles to the staff for recycling. There was a bar with every kind of drink, including some nice wines and the local beer. I particularly liked that the boat was large enough to find time alone, but small enough that everyone became familiar with each other. Our group was friendly and it was interesting to have so many nationalities together. No words can describe the beauty of the Bay. It takes your breath away. We had read reviews commenting on plastic in the water, and for this, we must all take some responsibility. However, there is much effort being put into cleaning up the Bay, actively promoted by this company. It seems to be working. We saw very little in the way of litter in the sea. While there are many boats, there are not too many, and Dragon Legend 2 has a license to go into Bai Tu Long Bay, which was peaceful and quiet and beautiful. During the trip, we got to go to a floating fishing village, kayak twice, including through caves, and went to small sandy coves, one in which we were given an impressive bbq. Again, all praise to the chef, his staff, our tour guide JD, and the lovely Milky Man. They all worked so hard to make the trip special. The service was exceptional. We would definitely recommend spending the two nights in Halong Bay if you have the time and using Dragon Legend as a company. We would happily have stayed longer. We booked our trip through Tonkin Travel who also provided us with an excellent driver, Fisher, who picked us up in Hanoi.

    great views and interesting cave
    The bay and its surrounding rocks, where monkeys play freely offered ecstatic views from our boat. At the end of the cruising in the bay, a finale with a cave full of stalactites and stalagmites.

    Private balcony room - Amazing
    We felt like royalty walking into our room to find we had our own balcony!! So very luxurious. The food was amazing and so much of it. 2 for 1 cocktails during happy hour was great but the free pouring even better!! Staff and crew were so lovely. Our guide Hero spoke English well and was so knowledgeable about a lot of things about Vietnam and Halong bay. He was very interesting to listen to. We only wish we could have more swimming time as we only had an hour. However I think this is quite good compared to others who don’t offer any swimming which is such a shame as the water is perfect. No sharks or crocs makes it even more alluring!

    Breath-takingly surreal
    In Asia one hears a lot of dragons and when one visits Ha Long Bay one almost expects a dragon to rise up out of the water or appear on one of the 2500 odd islands that are to be found in this gorgeous bay. Take a day cruise with lunch and you will be amazed at the food and the scenery. Those who prefer can spend the night on the boat. The water is very calm so even non-seafaring folk can enjoy. Absolutely stunning!

    Halong Bay day tour with bamboo boat ride
    Took a day tour to Halong Bay. The return journey took nearly 7 hours so it’s a very long day. The boat trip was well organized with excellent lunch on board. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. The scenery in Halong Bay is beautiful with interesting caves to explore. The bamboo boat ride is ok but very touristy. All in all a good day despite the long journey.

    Royal Palace Cruise
    If you are going to hanoi then halong bay is a must. You must go for two days one night cruise. They pick you up from the hotel & takes you to the halong city. From there they take you to the cruise. Depending on your budget you can chose. Generally they serve two lunch, one breakfast & one dinner. They take you for some islands nearby & surprise cave. All the boats have been painted white & the cruises stop moving after 6pm. There are facilities of karaoke & squid fishing as well.

    Halong Bay O’Gallery Lotus Cruise
    3 days, 2 nights. From Hanoi. First Class effort. Not as smooth as international cruise lines, but a fine effort. The Lotus Ship is new and luxurious. No infrastructure amenities, but a full list of activities were included in the price. 6 course meals, were generally good. Very friendly staff. Would recommend 4 days, 3 nights to enjoy at a less intense pace. Activities included cooking class, tai chi, squid fishing, kayaking, bike riding, bamboo boat to a cave, Rice wine tasting, Pearl farm, local village, floating camps. The scenery is outstanding, and they are making efforts to clean up the garbage. Highly recommend

    Orchid 3 Cruise HP 4669
    Wow! We arranged this tour through Blue Dragon Tours and everything ran like clockwork. The pick up from Hanoi was on time, the driver was excellent, there was a timed pit stop on the way (needed), the drop off to the cruise and the trip out to the boat well organised and very professional. The Orchid 3 cruise boat was fabulous and the staff were the best. The food and service were first class. Top marks to Eddie, John and Lisa for their professionalism, and especially to John who really went out of his way to make sure we were looked after to first class standards. The cabin was excellent and extremely comfortable. The scenery here is just spectacular and should be on everyone’s bucket list. Just an incredible experience.

    Amazing sights
    Pick from hotel was prompt. Drive to Ha Long Bay was long, but comfortable. So many boats in the bay, assume they all offer same/similar tours. The boat was clean and food was good. Staff was very friendly. The tour guide kept us busy with cooking class, squid fishing, cave tour, kayaking and climbing one of the rock formations (Titop island)for a great view. No beach or sunbathing weather, but the tour was great and the views amazing. Would recommend this tour to any body.
