Awesome travel is just Awesome! Their Luxury Day Tour to Halong Bay is fabulous. The vehicle is very comfortable with lots of space and seat comfort. The guide was fun and informative, pointing out different points of interest on our 1.45 hour trip to Halong Bay (including a 10 minute toilet stop enroute). This tour is arranged so that you get to Halong Bay slightly earlier than the huge crowds, so you avoid the crush. The crew (and our guide) were safety conscious which we appreciated. We loved the boating element, and the limestone cave walk was a highlight. What a great tour, with a great guide, delivered by a great company! Just Awesome!

The bus has wide seats and you can get one bottle of water for going and returning. There is a toilet break not to be troubled. The guide is in English, but it explains Vietnam's history and Halong Bay clearly. At Halong Bay cruise, lunch is served first, but I think that Japanese people can eat easily. Although some sauce was in it. You can walk in the limestone cave while explaining in detail. Activities can choose kayaks or bamboo boats, but when you ride a kayak, your feet and butt will get wet. I think that it is cold in winter. On the deck of the ship there was also a beach chair that could be lying down, so I gently relaxed. Most of them are Westerners and we got accustomed to getting along with everyone, so that was a very good experience and it was fun. Halong Bay itself was wider than I imagined, and I felt it was very beautiful, as there were parts that I did not expect much.

You will not go hungry on this cruise! There is so much incredible and varied food on offer including different meats, seafood, rice and noodles. There are unmissable chances to kayak, swim and hike around the Hà Long Bay islands. I would advise that, although this is a family friendly cruise for the off boat activities, be prepared to bring activities to occupy young children during their time on the boat. Happy cruising!

A thoroughly enjoyable cruise. The staff were largely attentive and organised a range of activities, keeping us up to speed with timings and their expectations. Additionally, they handled a large group of young parents with small children very well, so they didn't detract from our pleasure too much. The catering options were varied and we were well fed, the buffet style restaurant for breakfast and lunch (there was a set menu for dinner) provided opportunities for us all to try new things. We had a full intinery, and found the cruise to be well organised.
