    Quite a rrelaxing tour even with canoeing, trekking, biking thrown in. Halong Bay was abit crowded but cannot be avoided as it is a UNESCO and famous tourist attraction. Would have loved to know more about Cat Ba town and could have put in a morning city tour on 3rd day before travel back to Hanoi.

What To Expect

Enjoy 3 days and 2 nights discovering the beauty of Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island. Spend one night on a traditional junk boat, and another in a 3-star hotel or 4-star resort (depending on your preference). On day 1, meet your tour guide at your hotel at Old Quarter, and from there, travel to Halong Bay. Board a boat at the harbor and enjoy a welcome drink and lunch before continuing on with the rest of your trip. Visit Sung Sot cave, famous for their amazing array of stalactites and stalagmites, then head to Soi Sim Island or Titop Island to go swimming. Afterwards, go kayaking around the islands - the best way to take in the beauty of Halong Bay. Your night will end with a cooking session on the boat before dinner, then you have the rest of the night to enjoy as you please. The next day, enjoy some breakfast aboard the boat then visit a pearl farm for a chance to see authentic pearl products and learn about how they make pearls in Halong bay. Afterwards, you'll travel to Lan Ha Bay, where you can see Monkey Island, then go on a 5 kilometer bike ride through the jungle to Viet Hai village. Enjoy a short trake to Cat Ba National Park, then ride back to the harbor for lunch. Afterwards, travel to Cat Ba town, where you can enjoy dinner at your hotel or resort, then enjoy the rest of the night exploring at your own pace and time. On your last and final day, enjoy the morning at your leisure. After checking out, you'll be taken back to the harbor where you'll board the Dragon Gold cruise for a relaxing ride back to Hanoi city. Have some lunch on the boat while heading back, and your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel in the city as soon as you return to port.

    I will leave it to your discretion if you should go ahead a book this particular tour. Day 1 started of very well (We were picked up slightly later after 8am but that's expected with hanoi's traffic). Bus ride to Halong Bay with filled with information from the guide on board the bus and the 4hours ride was a smooth one to say the least. Upon reaching the Halong Bay habour, we were transfer to your cruise operator, Lavander Cruises. The 2D1N cruise was very good and the team at Lavender Cruise was excellent. Guide and on board was the approachable, friendly and experienced. Meals were great and so were activities. It was only after this tour when we got dropped off back at Halong Bay habour that that things go complicated. We were transferred to a taxi that ferried us to the other end of the pier (the one that ferries people across to Cat Ba island). We were told to wait for a person who would transfer us to Cat Ba island. We waited quite a while and many drivers approach us asking if we needed taxi. It was only after 10mins that our speedboat operator managed to locate us. We got into a private speedboat and was sent to Cat Ba island. once off the speedboat, we were asked to walk straight with ZERO indication who to look for (Granted, the speedboat operator wasn't exactly able to communicate in English). Again we were touted many times.. This got me extremely fed up and rang up Klook using my Singapore sim card (Super expensive since it's an overseas call) that things got sorted out. Apparently our driver (who wasnt fluent in English either) was also waiting for us and had approach us earlier. He asked if we were from "Kai Xin Tours" to which we obviously said no as we were never informed of it. It was only after klook called the driver that we realized we were now under "Kai Xin Tours" Once at Cat Ba island, we met up with our English speaking guide and he helped us checked into Sea Pearl Hotel. I'll spare the details of the hotel but note that ALL meals provided in Cat Ba island was actually just means provided in the hotel. Since the second part of the "Tour" was only for myself and my companion, we were given more freedom in choosing what we wanted to do. We opted out from the morning hike of Cat Ba National Park and chose to visit Monkey Island that afternoon. Once again, was sent out on a taxi (Guide never followed us) to the pier headed for Monkey Island. Overall I'm an easy-going person so it didn't matter much to myself that the second day's itinerary wasn't as stated. I know plans do change but it was rather drastic and also felt like we were constantly thrown around. I'm not saying to not do the tour because in the end I was well alive and wasn't kidnapped but the experience of being bumped around different private operators didn't feel good when I booked a tour with Klook expecting it to be one whole SEAMLESS experience.

    Quite a rrelaxing tour even with canoeing, trekking, biking thrown in. Halong Bay was abit crowded but cannot be avoided as it is a UNESCO and famous tourist attraction. Would have loved to know more about Cat Ba town and could have put in a morning city tour on 3rd day before travel back to Hanoi.

    Excellent!our guide Hien was very friendly, informative and properly took care of us since day 1. Worth the money. Food was good and our request for food was very well taken care off. Would recommend

    My husband and I went for the 3 day 2 night trip to Halong Bay in Sept, and it was a well planed, fun and exciting trip for us! The view was stunning everywhere we visit. The guide was friendly and was able to communicate using good English. He shared many interesting facts and stories with us throughout the trip. We were well informed on what to be expected too. They were able to customize vegetarian food for me throughout the trip, and there were overflowing of food for every meal. The people working on the cruise has good service and attitude, but We were just disappointed by how old and not well maintain the cruise was, plus there were no hot water shower available on the cruise too! We get to travel to different places as listed on the itinerary using the small boat provided by the cruse, and the life vest provided on the small boat (which we were requested to wear when we are on the small boat) were old, smelly and some of the clip can't even work. but overall, the whole experience was good, and i recommended my friends to join the trip too! (i just kept telling her not to expect too much from the cruise, which i think klook should look into it.) Thank you klook!

    In general it was well-organized and a good experience. Food and accommodations were excellent. We had two tour guides. The first tour guide, Chang,picked us up from the hotel in Hanoi and toured us on the first day. She was fluent in English, humorous and knowledgeable. The second day we were transferred to another cruise and had a different tour guide, Anna. She's rather unfluent in English and that really caused some problems when we tried to communicate with her. When we arrived at one of the islands and were ready to go for a bike ride, we realized that the bicycles were really city bikes, not the mountain bikes that were shown on klook. We tried to communicate with the shop owner through Anna to see if there's any chance to get mountain bikes, but she mistranslated and the shop owner somehow got very mad at us and Anna just panicked. In the end we had to take the city bikes to ride to the top of the hills. Apart from that, Anna joined us at our table for every meal, which was kind of strange. I guess she just wanted to improve her English. Everything else was good and well-arranged. A nice tour.

    Meals provided were very good and varied. Much activity packed. We were thoroughly exhausted after the 3 days. Felt that the package was a bit overpriced though.

    The first day went very well, we got picked up and transfered to dragon cruise promptly, but found out that we couldn't use aircon until after dinner, boat was very old, 2nd day we were transferred to another boat to go catch ba island, after monkey island, we finally arrived at our beautiful sunrise resort, but was told to be ready for picked up by 7.40. For some reasons we didn't get picked up till 12.30 and was no longer following schedule, but was dumped to another bus with local ferry back to hanoi. Food during trips was average. Our first tour guide was professional, but the 2nd one was not so professional. I will not use this if I ever come back to Halong again.

    Our guide "Silver" was very nice. The boat and the hotel were quite good. As well the meals. Quality\price is a 5. I missed an email to confirm the booking but everything else was OK
  • Susanne 7 Mar 2018
    The Tour was a I very nice experience, it was all very organized and the tour guide was very friendly and helpful. Food was a lot and very delicious. Only the drinks you needed to pay, were a bit pricey for Vietnam. Had a small boat with ca. 15 people. The weather was very foggy but also nice. Can recommend it.
