Your day trip begins with hotel pickup in Hanoi, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Halong Bay, a UNESCO-listed area home to more than 2,000 limestone islands. During the journey, you’ll admire the Red River Delta, replete with water buffalo and rice terraces. On arrival in Halong Bay, you’ll board a boat and spend the afternoon cruising.

We had a good trip. The weather was hot. The guide was very good. The food excellent. The boats are not like the one pictured. Overall an experience to do if you haven’t done it before.

We did an overnight out from Hanoi, which in our opinion, would be a minimum as opposed to a one day. The trip offered everything it said, the caves were a great walk, the house boats were an experience and overall, if youre in Hanoi, your trip is made richer by a Halong Bay

OK - to start off with, we didn't actually end up on the Ha Long Bay Tour- but that was because Typhoon Wipha decided to pass directly overhead and the govt brought all the boats to harbour. But ... here's the actual review of BC Family Tours. We'd organised multiple locations

The only negative I have is that the place was hard to find to catch the bus, make sure you check it out the night before so you know exactly where you going to meet the bus the next morning! But what a great experience we had, great guide, easy experience with breathtaking

Hi Jessica, Thank so much for your review. As we discussed, you can search our meeting point on Google maps or other apps, and you can show to driver and they can take you from your hotel outside city center and drop you off at our place. We knew that you visited us in the evening before and this day was weekend and there are walking roads around Hoan Kiem Lake and Hanoi Old Quarters at weekend, so your driver have to drop off you not exactly our place. Anw, you found us and had a great experience with Halong Bay Day Trip :)
