Hi there, I am looking for a Halong Bay Cruise, but instead of returning back to Hanoi, I would like to head to Ninh Binh and further south. Is there an oppurtunity? Thanks and best regards, Alexandra
Alexandra, August 05, 2019
Hi Book the private car is the best way to get to Ninh Binh from Halong Bay due to following reason Driver will pick you up at the hotels, cruise pier and take you to any hotel in Ninh Binh Driver will pick you up at any time you want. Especially if you would like to go Ninh Binh after your Halong Bay Cruise Tour, the driver will contact with cruise's operator and know when you disembark to pick you up The rate for the private car from Halong to Ninh Binh: 4 seat private car: 95USD 7 seat private car: 105USD 16 seat private car: 115USD

Asked by David Yan, July 08, 2019
Dear Sir or Madam, we are planning to get a Cruise from your website, the Stellar of the Seas, for 2D1N starting 12th August. We saw that you offer transfer services however only round trips from Hanoi. We are coming from Tam Coc (Ninh Binh) so we are wondering whether you also offer transfer services from Tam Coc to Halong Bay, and afterwards from Halong Bay to Hanoi. If not, could you give some advice whether the bus transport from Tam Coc is reliable for catching the Cruise at 12:00 pm? Thanks in advance for your help. David Yan
