I had an awful experience with the tour guide Mike. We felt it was odd that on the bus he would focus his attention to the Caucasian patrons with zero Eye contact to us while explaining things. He singled us out in one of his questions as if we don’t understand English. Returning he would give water to all of the white patrons first who were behind us on the bus. While we were sleeping on the deck after checkout he clapped his hands and woke us up. This is so he got us to help him to take up to 10 different pictures of different poses.... I felt like I was working for him rather than the other way around. I already had a very bad sleep so the tour guide clapping and waking us up purposely is really out of line. Karaoke is not allowed because there being only 14 guests on the tour according to Mike. Please note the cabin smelled and toilet is clogged. It was very uncomfortable. I think for a proper experience you need to pay up unfortunately or find a last minute deal. I am thankful for the manager of the cruise , without him I would think it was terrible.

The boat and rooms are exactly as pictured, comfortable and clean. The food and level of service was well above what we expected. Our guide Noi was lovely and gave us lots of information. Very helpful as well such as ordering us a taxi when we got off the boat as we weren’t going back to Hanoi. Single use plastic has been banned from the bay so they will make you throw away/leave behind and pick up later. This is a good thing! We noticed much, much less plastic waste floating in the sea compared to other places in Asia. But it wasn’t mentioned until 5 mins before going to the boat - some people had already stocked up with bottles of water and weren’t too pleased. Water and reusable bottles are provided on the boat free of charge.

We were picked up by a bus in Hanoi, together with other cruise guests. 3,5h’s drive, but good accommodation. The boat itself was above expectations. Nice room and bathroom. The food (breakfast, lunch and diner) was of very good quality, served by a very friendly staff. The activities were very well organized and fun, lead by a very funny and friendly tour guide. The scenery in Halong Bay is fabulous, so you can be sure to go home with some beautiful pictures.
