Well worth paying a little extra for the facility of a shorter trip to Halong BAY. Coach very comfortable. Boat was great also.Both staff anddriver lovely. Enjoyed the lunch and the little cookery class. Not sure Halong Bay will be able to accept any more tourists as the pollution is unreal there. See it while you can for what it is but dont expect any romantic sunrises/sunsets with the polluted air and sea.

It's just incredibly awesome. Booking was a breeze. Very considerate and accommodating. The van driver despite limited English communication skills was kind. And we enjoyed the luxury travel in a van which only two of us had for ourselves.. The lunch was awesome.. The experience was simply awesome. I would love to bring my children back to Halong bay..

We visited halong bay with awesome travel. The guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. As well as warm and friendly! The bus and trip are exactly how it's described on the website. Our tour was a small group and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The bay is beautiful and nice to get away from the crowds. It's a little more expensive but well worth the money in my opinion . I would definitely recommend this trip. We've also booked our airport drop off with this company. Al and Jo Al and Jo
