Our two-day Ha Long Bay tour with Swan Cruises was accompanied by the extremely lovable guide Kien. We totally enjoyed it. A great room and fine food underlined the unique natural phenomenon.

Great Bai Tu Long trip!

Amicable, high-quality experience. We did the 2-night option and even extended that with a paddy homestay through Swan. They will pick you up at your Hanoi hotel with a van/bus. It is about a 2hr drive to the HaLing harbor. A tender at the marina transports you to the ship, about a 40min boat ride.… More

We are looking to be picked up from Lotus Field Homestay in Ninh Binh on the 18th February, to come to Halong Bay to start the Cruise on the 18th February. Could you confirm what time the pick up would be from Lotus Field Homestay? At the end of the cruise on the 20th February, we are looking to go to Hanoi, rather than return to Ninh Binh. Can you confirm this is possible?

@Ceri Morris:

We have an option bus from Ninh Binh and back Hanoi at the booking process.

Hello, We are coming from Ninh Binh to Ha Long Bay on the 11th. Since we are not doing the arranged pickup from Hanoi, would we still be able to get on the cruise if we arrange transportation there?

@Anabell Motley:

Yes our check in time for cruise about noon, you can take bus to Halong from early morning then catch the cruise.
