Review List

Amazing!! Must do

I recently did this cruise with 2 friends and it was incredible. Our guide Tom was so knowledgable, spoke great English, very polite and entertaining. The staff on the boat are very obliging and happy to help in anyway. The food was great, activities were great, boat was very clean - overall a fantastic experience!

Organized and fun!

Our Hotel, Essence Hanoi, arranged one day trip to Ha Long by Alova Cruises. The cost was about $55 USD I think per person and included hotel pick up, cruise, lunch, tour of the parts of the bay, canoes (canoe guide available), stopping at Thien Cung Cave (highly recommended, but it is a little hike to get inside), then cruise back to land. Our tour guide (I feel bad that I can't remember his name, but I want to say maybe it's Sunny??) was awesome, funny and professional! We had a wonderful time and so did everyone else on our cruise. Would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

Oh...and the shuttle bus WILL have mosquitoes on it. Lots. So do bring mosquito spray with you!!

An Awesome Experience

We opted for the one day cruise as we weren't sure about the weather conditions in Halong Bay and if it would be OK to spend the night there. And our decision turned out to be good as the day cruise is quite comprehensive and you cover almost everything.

One thing you must ask your travel agent is the cancellation policy if there are typhoons and the cruise gets cancelled. Alova refunds you the money in this case. They pick you up from the hotel and have a English speaking guide.

On the way to Halong Bay they stop at a big artifact showroom but dont buy anything from there as you will get it cheaper in Hanoi and after that you reach Halong Bay. There your guide will have your tickets ready and will take you to the cruise boat.

The ship is great with good interiors and you are seated comfortably. They give you enough time to go on the upper deck and explore the ship. And later they serve appetizers and food ( Please note that they have vegetarian options and you should specify that at the time of booking)

And then a mesmerizing journey begins...Go on the upper deck and enjoy the scenic view and you could grab a local beer( on extra payment)...After taking you around they dock the ship at the Boating Harbor....Here you will be given an option of either taking a boat which will be rowed by a boatman or a Kayak . Do go in for a Kayak to enjoy the surroundings....The scenery is awesome and you will not feel like going back.

After this they take you to a cave and our guide showed us things which we would have missed otherwise. All in all a great trip and I would recommend Alova Day Cruises as their service is good and they are cheaper than the others

One Day tour Halong Bay

If you are tight on schedule and planning to see the beauty of Halong Bay, then you better consider Alova Day Cruise which is I believe a sister company of Indochina junk. We booked Alova thru the indochina junk website and they are very accomodating and helpful. Our group guide was Sunny and he made the trip joyful from start to finish. The trip was pleasant and the bus is comfortable enough for a 3 hr trip.

Fun day boat trip amazing scenery

The whole experience was amazing, great staff and crew and our tour guide Tom was very knowledgeable.

Great one day cruise with top notch crew

Under Sunny's delightful planning skills we had a great time on the Ha Long Bay. The 10-minutes relaxing time windows are rare, so you better enjoy them

Great one day tour in Ha Long Bay with nice tour guide

We go to Ha Long Bay at 8 Jul 2016. Luckily, it have a very good weather, just like our nice tour guide, Sunny. He is so funny and helpful within the tour.

The lunch on the boat tastes very good. With the beautiful view of Ha Long Bay, we are very enjoyable within the trip. Next time, we will join the 2 days/1 nights tour and feel the silent night of the Ha Long Bay.
