    Should do it!
    August 11, 2018

    We booked Garden bay cruise for our trip in Halong bay & that's amazing experience. The boat, foods, staffs, tour guide was good and fantastic. The bai tu long bay was better than Halong bay because it's cleaner, quiet. the surprise caving tour a bit crowded. Overall i really enjoyed every activities they offerred. Highly recommend!


    Amazing garden bay team
    August 08, 2018

    2 days in a boat, it was amazing. The team are helpful and nice. I recommend a travel with them. One word : AWESOME


    A nice cruise
    August 08, 2018

    This trip was amazing. The view was breathtaking and the cruise was a very relaxing break from an otherwise busy trip. The food was excellent as the seafood was very fresh. The only reason I wouldn't rate this higher is due to the high cost. Compared to the places that I stayed in Vietnam and Thailand for a similar price, this cruise seems grossly overpriced. However, if cost is of no concern for you, I wholeheartedly recommend this cruise.


    Amazing cruise
    August 06, 2018

    The Halong bay trip is great. We’ve got happy hours on the Garden bay cruise, everything done smoothly. Our cabin was lovely with private balcony and en-suite room. The foods was tasty and abundant, the tour guide speak English so well and funny. The bay is wonderful like unique picturesque that just existed in your dream or paradise.


    The best part of our trip to Vietnam!
    August 06, 2018

    This was very nicely done. The boat itself was really nice and our room was well appointed. The food was good and the activities were really enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend.


    Just wonderful
    August 05, 2018

    Rooms were beautiful, generously sized for a boat cabin and very well appointed. A tip - upgrade to an upstairs room with a balcony if you get the chance. The food was plentiful and delicious. Drinks a little pricey but as you'd expect. The staff were all lovely and there was a great but busy timetable on offer throughout the 24 hour trip. 


    Kayaking and swimming from the boat were real highlights and the crew were brilliant with our two young boys. Sunset on the top deck was also fabulous. There were cooking demonstrations for those who wanted to join in and otherwise loungers on which to sit and admire the view. The caves were very busy - surely it'd be possible to spread out the trips to avoid the bottle neck of boats arriving?!? So prepare for a 90 min excursion and cover yourself with bug spray first but it was fascinating once we were finally inside.


    Only gripe was that 24 hours wasn't long enough once all the activities are taken into account. Probably I would consider 2 nights option on the next time visiting here.


    Great food & excellent staff
    August 04, 2018

    We went on the 2 day and 1 night cruise and loved every moment of it. From the outset our tour guide was very informative and made the long bus trip go quite quickly. The food was a real highlight though we did struggle finishing all the courses! A real highlight of the trip was the staff. They were not only helpful but also willing to relax and chat with everyone on board. Halong Bay is breathtaking!


    Good Experience
    August 04, 2018

    Overall this was a pleasant experience. We started off the trip with a private bus picking us up directly from our hotel. The bus ride took hours and do bring some lots of snacks! The guides spoke comprehensible English and was engaging. 


    The cruise looks very cosy. There's a balcony for most rooms and you can sit outside to enjoy the amazing view while the cruise moves along Halong Bay. From what I observed, only rooms on the second deck had a balcony. Be sure to question about your room when you book, as you wouldn't want to miss out on the great view!


    My cruise had a mixture of travellers from Europe and America. Everyone was lovely and we would all gather together for meals. They held optional "classes" to teach us how to make authentic Vietnamese spring rolls, and how to carve fruits.


    The cruise brought us to different attractions at Halong Bay. While it is good to get off the cruise to experience it for yourself, you can also choose to just stay on deck to rest and enjoy the view. 


    Also, the cruise isn't rocky at all (for someone who has motion sickness like me) so don't worry about puking on board! 


    PS. Their happy hour includes get 3 beers for the price of 2!


    Great trip and experience
    August 03, 2018

    My wife and I took this trip last minute as the one we wanted was fully booked. But as chance had it I'm glad we did. It was very good, the bay is amazing. Most boats will cover the same itinerary so what you are really looking for is the type of boat and people you want. This is by no means a party boat which is initially what we wanted but in contrast it was good to relax. The food was good and if you want to do the cooking class or making flowers from vegetables you can, if not just sit and relax. We did the 2 day 1 night tour.


    Our guide Kien was excellent, a very nice guy, helpful and knowledgeable.


    Top service
