Worthwhile Halong Tour

I scheduled a limousine pickup from my hotel in the Old Quarter area, and it arrived on time. Even though I was rather tall, the bus was spacious and comfy.

Day tour in Halong Bay

Our group had a great time. We visited many famous places in the bay in around 6 - 7 hours.
There were many activities to try so I was pretty tired at the end of the day.
I'll book an overnight trip next time.

All good

The vacation was fantastic, and the itinerary was well-paced. Alan, the tour guide, explained everything well and with excellent humor. I highly recommend Alan for a fantastic trip. The restaurant's buffet was extensive, with plenty of options. The limousine bus is necessary for comfortable travel.
