Aspira Cruises 3 Days 2 Nights | 25/11/2023
A lovely journey

My overall impression of this cruise is how well everything was planned. We're 70 years old but we still joined every activity as they were fun. Choosing the 3-day tour was a good choice, we have more time to relax on board. Thanks the team for this amazing experience.

Mon Cheri Cruise 2 Days 1 Night | 25/11/2023
A truly unforgettable experience in Ha Long Bay

Going on a 2 day/1 night cruise with Mon Cheri Cruise was a fantastic experience.
The cruise was fantastic, and the accommodation was quite comfy and large.
The cruise staff was amazing, really nice, and helpful. Mr. Jon, in particular, who serviced us during the voyage.
He was extremely helpful and pleasant.

Paradise Elegance Cruise 2 Days 1 Night | 25/11/2023
1 night Halong cruise is a must do

We'd never done anything like this before, and it was well worth it.
We took advantage of every opportunity to get off the boat and go hiking, kayaking, and so on. Dinner was delicious and the fish was fresh, which surprised me for a cruise.
They offered us the entire lounge to see King Kong (the islands… More

Paradise Sails 2 Days 1 Night | 25/11/2023
Paradise on Board

Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! My sister and I had a fantastic day at Paradise Sails! Seeing Halong Bay in person had been a lifetime goal; in fact, photographs and films do not do credit to this UNESCO World Heritage site. The crew on board were really accommodating and courteous. Joselito… More

Prince Cruise 2 Days 1 Night | 25/11/2023
Excellent two day cruise on the Prince Private Cruise

We made a reservation for the smaller Prince Junk, which had four cabins, and it turned out to be the best choice for us. The boat was incredibly comfortable and spacious, providing a pleasant and enjoyable experience. We occupied three of the cabins as a group of five, and we were joined by another… More

Pelican Cruise 2 Days 1 Night | 25/11/2023
Excellent service and experience

We had an absolutely fantastic 2-day, 1-night cruise in HaLong Bay with Pelican Cruises. Our entire trip was booked through Best Price Travels, with the invaluable assistance of their Consultant, Ms. My Uyen. Initially, the cruise we had chosen was fully booked, but My Uyen quickly arranged an alternative… More

Nice overnight cruise

I had the pleasure of working with Hera Vu to arrange an overnight Halong Bay cruise. I must say that Hera was incredibly prompt in her responses and ensured that our boarding process was seamless. We embarked on a delightful 2-day, 1-night cruise aboard the La Regina Classic boat. Our suite was absolutely… More

Queen Luxury Halong Bay Day Trip | 24/11/2023
Great from start to end

My Uyen was responsible for organizing the entire tour from start to finish. We were promptly picked up and introduced to our guide soon before boarding the boat. The schedule was ideal, with plenty of time to see all of the sights. The food was delicious, and the crew was quite helpful. We even received a complimentary upgrade, which was really appreciated.

Phoenix Cruise 3 Days 2 Nights | 24/11/2023
3 days trip in Halong Bay

We've just finished our trip to Halong Bay and it was amazing. The food was delicious, the activities were fun. I liked the trip to Luon Cave.
It was memorable, thanks to the staff on board.

Heritage Binh Chuan Cruise 2 Days 1 Night | 24/11/2023
We have a good time

This cruise was very memorable. The bay is stunning, I took many pictures there. Our room is spacious, it has a huge window overlooking the bay. The staff was very friendly. Sadly, it was raining on the 2nd day so we couldn't do much.
We'll return in the future, maybe a 3-day tour will be much better.

"Breathtaking and intimate"

On our roundtrip through Vietnam we decided to spend a few days in Halong Bay. A week before departure we received a message with a question whether we'd be fine with a transfer to the smallest boat in their fleet. We agreed, and boy, were we lucky. We ended up on an almost private cruise, having everything… More

"Perfect trip"

We did a 2 night 3 day cruise with Indochina sails and it was better than we could expect, our tour guide while there was Jax and he was great, extremely friendly and his service was second to none. The first day on boarding we were given a set menu lunch, the staff were very accommodating to my meat… More

"Not worth the money"

Ha Long bay is a must be in Vietnam, even if it is so touristy experience. We decided to go with overnight stay on boat to experience as much as possible. And the mission was accomplished however it is not worth its money. The bay is beautiful despite the pollution of the water. Floating rubbish and… More

Staff were excellent, compared and matched, they were treated as like royalty. The boat was beautiful and clean, loved the old style. Very well organized tour, felt like I saw a lot of Halong but also had plenty of time to relax. Food was okay.

"Passable, but that is about it..."

I did my research, just as you are doing now and across the internet on a number of outlets you find reviewers speaking very highly of Indochina Sails (enough so need mind you that the company is able to command a premium in cabin price versus the rest of the market – I booked on their website). I… More

"A luxurious 24 hours on board!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our day & overnight trip around Halong Bay on board the Valentine.
It was an excellent five berth boat - and our meals (lunch, dinner & breakfast) were all fabulous! Our cabin was well equipped with an en suite (shower & bath), and Eric and his team were first class.
An experience we would be very happy to repeat!

"Amazing trip in Ha Long Bay"

We had a wonderful experience about Indochina Sails. We stayed overnight and the accommodations were very nice and we toured the caves, had a cooking demonstration, did squid fishing and hiked up to a lovely look out point. The staff, especially Thoa, was very nice and they did everything to make our trip special. Would highly recommend this boat!

"Great 2 Day 1 Night Tour on Indochine Cruise"

Great cruise - really nice cabins and especially bathrooms. The sundeck is huge and perfect for a bit of tai chi in the morning. Friendly staff and super interesting activities. Would definitely recommend.
