Definitely will return

Because I didn't have time for an overnight trip to Halong Bay, a buddy recommended this cruise to me. Even though it was only a day, everything was good. It was professionally organized by Best Price Travel Hera from the beginning of the trip to the end of the day.

Amazing service

This was a nice journey with an enthusiastic tour guide, who made my stay so much better. For a day cruise, this is more fun than I thought. It may be crowded in some areas, but I’ve prepared for that.
Thank Ms. Phuong, for such wonderful experiences. You were very nice and knowledgeable.
See you on next year's trip to Halong!!

Excellent cruise

I tried to book a last-minute cruise to Halong Bay but the cruise I wanted wasn’t available. Luckily, My Uyen from Best Price Travel helped me find another cruise which was Wonder Bay. This cruise was great for a 4-star: nice staff, delicious food with amazing activities. I was able to see a lot of Halong Bay within a day. Thanks, My Uyen and Wonder Bay.

Is it possible to go to Noi Bai Airport at 21:00 after the trip? We have a flight at 22:00, so I am worried we may not arrive in time.

@Arjan C:

I suggest you should not go to airport after take a trip because it very risky. You can change to take a 8 hour trip to Halong bay because the tour will end around 4 pm at the habour and you will have more time to go to the airport
