    The tour went smoothly from the bus from Hanoi Hotel pickup until the end. The agency texted me by WhatsApp and communicated clearly about what to expect and do.

    The overview says the cruise is to Ha Long Bay, but the route depends on what cruise the agency is able to book. For my trip, we went on Renea Cruise to Bai Tu Long Bay. The cruise cabin was clean, beautiful and comfortable, and has windows for looking at the scenery. Take note, Ha Long Bay has a no-plastic water bottle policy to protect the environment, and cruise provides free drinking water.

    The cruise has amazing once-in-a-lifetime scenery. The tour guide, Duc, was excellent and communicated very well about the information on the Bay and our itinerary. Activities include kayaking and swimming in the Bay near some beaches, squid fishing at night, and cave exploration. The food was decently prepared too. Halong Bay was the highlight after the busy night in Hanoi.

    My wife and I took the 3-day 2-night cruise to Lan ha Bay which also includes halong Bay we had the premier double room a balcony Suite on the second floor the bed was very comfortable great shower and view,

    Although the balcony was very narrow comfortable enough to sit and have a quiet drink or read a book. The views in Atlanta with the karst we're extraordinary.

    The nights were quiet with lights of other cruise ships reflecting and the sunset from the top deck although cloudy was still quite nice.

    Bicycle tours kayaking and swimming all were grade activities I was able to dive from the top of the tender boat great fun for an old man. The bicycling trip into the UNESCO Village on Cat Ma zisland was interesting as well.. Annette Lee try the Cobra rice wine during that part of the tour.

    All in all the staff was very attentive and willing to please making the two night stay on the boat enjoyable and very comfortable the food was very good with good option choices for vegan and carnivore alike and although I seldom have three Square meals a day with these options I was stuffed continuously.

    This tour from start to finish was well worth the cost and good value thank you again to our host Sunny and the hard working crew of Ha long Bay Cruise Hunters

    Took my mum to visit the famous ha long Bay when she visited me in Vietnam.
    Great service and excellent communication with the trav consultant Kevin.
    Our guide Hà was excellent and spoke great English, was funny and had great info for us. The boat is small with max capacity about 20 pax.
    We had a small group of 10 all up and it was relaxing. The boat is not luxury but clean and comfortable. The crew were fantastic and there were enough activities.
    Lần ha bay was beautiful and not too many boats there.
    Definitely recommend.

    The Scarlet Pearl cruise was everything that was advertised. Pickup and delivery was timely and professional. The magnificent cruise ship was more that we could expect with impeccable service, delicious meals and amenities that are usually not found on such cruises. The prices were fantastic and affordable for us but only because of the recent issues with the virus. Normally the prices would be higher and so the value for money start to even out. For us, we enjoyed the benefit of a top class (and above) for a very decent rate. The cruise is also beautiful because of the scenery offered in the Bay.

    Ngoc anh (Kolea?) was exceptional as a tour guide. He went above and beyond his duty for the passengers. He was very personable to each and every passenger. He shared personal stories and entertained us with his funny jokes and singing (in Russian!). I would definitely recommend requesting him.

    Spent the day in awe of the beauty of the bay. This tour takes you to the lesser travelled parts of the bay with little other traffic so you can truly experience the tranquility of nature! The crew and our tour guide, Jack, were very welcoming. Highly recommend!

    Cruise was fun and tour guide’s English was excellent. Activities throughout the cruise trip. Love the squid catching at night. 2 days 1 night trip was just nice!
