Tour: 3 days and 2 nights in Ha long Bay. Average stay in a averages ship. The pickup took very long time and on the way to Ha long they stop at a shop for more than 30 min - only for buying something that was 2-3 time the price as in Ha noi. The services personal onboard only understood a little of English and the cooking class and fruit carving was wast of time. On the way back they made us wait for 75 min from arriving in the harbor before our transport began back to Ha noi. On the way back they stoped again in the shop - waist of time again. When we arrived in Ha noi we were just drop off far from our hotel and then we could walk with all our luggages on our own. If you take this cruise then you need good time. Don't pay too much for it is averages.
Enjoyed our 2D1N V'Spirit cruise. Pickup bus from/to hotel is clean & comfortable. Our guide, Peter is very knowledgeable, helpful & friendly. Food & program for the whole trip is very well organised. Would definitely recommend this cruise to friends going for Halong bay cruise
Hoang (happy) our tour guide was amazing! He made us feel very welcomed and gave us information about Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and answered our questions. He gave us insight on what to see for the rest of our travels.
Tour was amazing, food was great!
Definitely would recommend.
We had an overnight stay on this cruise, from the moment we were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi our guide candy kai was truly amazing, the food the staff on board, the efficiency of the staff with keeping the guests relaxed was truly outstanding, kai even took photos of us kayaking which we love, cannot say enough about this truly genuine friendly lad, who made the magical trip to halong bay, which is mesmerising in itself so much more enjoyable, thank you kai
Joined this tour from nz through a grab a deal site. Really glad we got put on v'spirit cruises!! Our tour guide - hoang aka 'happy' was great and really looked after our group from the min he picked us up from our hotel. Answering many questions (great English!), making sure we were all safe for the entire cruise and making sure each of us had a great time. Not only that but we had a group from France on our tour and happy was able to speak to them in fluent French so nobody missed out on any info.
Cabin was clean and roomy for two people (we did the one night and two day tour) bathroom in cabin was really clean too. Boat looks old from outside but inside is really clean. Food was good (westernised a bit but still yum). Service onboard from every one was 5 star!! Couldn't fault it.
Really recommend giving the squid fishing ago (just for fun but a few managed to catch a few!). The cave was good too but extremely packed. It was really cold when we went (march) so make sure you pack a jacket and pants. Views were great!!!! Got many awesome photos. Not much down time to relax. Very full on two days.
Recommend this tour if you want to go see Halong bay. Great value for money. Try get happy as your guide if possible!!!
