Without a doubt, A-Must do!

Made the right decision to go with a recommended and famous company, Garden Bay cruise Halong. Had a very relaxing and entertaining time. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the food was very tasty, and the accommodating of the high class liner was top score. The hostess was very warmly and went out of her way to make the guests felt appreciated and taken care of. The pick up and embarkation was well arranged and smooth. Garden Bay Halong is definitely a must!

Specatacular rooms

"Garden Bay cruise Halong was very traditional style, and compared to the other boats we were excited. 


 But the rooms were nice and the bathroom even nicer. Room was super great, set type. Our guest had a shellfish allergy and the staff was very attentive and handeld the situation for us. Staff were very nice and guide was really attentive and helpful, overall enjoyed my cruise."

Outstanding, always fun

"We honestly don't know where to begin praising the efficient, friendly and incredibly gracious staff of Halong Garden Bay Cruise - this absolutely gorgeous boat. The boat manager and his team did a great job on creating fun, superb experience from the moment we stepped on board. Our room was beautiful. It's worth every penny for the spacious cabin with private balcony and the view is breathtaking from the multiple windows. Halong Bay is simply spectacular. There is a reason Halong Bay is a World Heritage Site...there are no words for how magnificent, and how peaceful the place is. Garden Bay Cruise was the perfect way to experience it all.




 Our only regret is that we only spent one time it'll be at least two!




 Highly recommend Halong Garden Bay Cruise, great job lads!"

Not a ton of sunshine but staff made up for it!

Lovely trip overall. The Garden boat looked old when we first saw it, but the cabins with balcony were nice. There was no sunshine at all, I feel that the sun is rare in this part. The food was nice in the boat, the team were very good, and our tour guide was also amazing.

Memorable number one Halong cruise

"It was the first cruise ever in my life. I have been travelling a lot but it was one of the best traveling experiences that I had ever had. They picked me up at my hotel, it had rained our entire commute and I was assured that it would rain the entire vacation, however shortly after boarding the rain stopped, the skies lit up and the fun began. All members of staff were very kind, friendly and as helpful as they could be. I stepped aboard to a fabulous welcome with drinks and music. All the stress, anxiety were instantly gone. My room was beautiful with private balcony. My first day on board, I visited Vung Vieng fishing village and had a great chance to learn about life in Halong Bay communities. Later of the day I had a nice kayaking time around the bay. At the end of the day they served this amazing authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Every dish I tried, I love it. 


 The following morning I attended the Tai Chi class on the sundeck. All the passengers were fun, and we quickly enjoyed the class with lots of smiles and clever movements. After having breakfast, I visited the Surprised Cave which was the most spectacular limestone cave I had never seen. Don't forget to bring your fully charged camera, you will want to keep those pictures. Quickly later we returned to the boat for the check out and it was the moment when I wish I could stop time. 


 Thank you Halong Hub for this awesome trip, I would definitely comeback with more friends!"

Magical experience

It was a great experience and we were impressed with the coziness of the junk boat; all the other guests seemed to agree with our experience. I'd never stayed in a boat for a trip before and it was a magical experience.

Luxurious experience

"Old world elegance meets the most outstanding location of the World Heritage Site. The food was very good and varied. Somehow we were ungraded to a suite, how mucked up were we?




 Even the lunch and entertainment before we returned to Hanoi were first class. The service was amazing.




 What a terrific journey - well done Garden Bay Cruise!!!"

Love Garden Bay Cruise Halong!

Best enjoyable experience on the Garden Bay Luxury Cruise. We did a one night stay. We had a room with a balcony on the second level and it was very clean and comfortable. The food was not my favourite but I love the seafood. Overall, the staff was very friendly and I would recommend this cruise for its value.

Just right, and Bai Tu Long Bay!

Booked this luxury halong bay tour because I wanted to get away from the very busy halong bay to the smaller Bai Tu Long Bay. The staff was very friendly and their English was really good.

I had an excellent experience!

I had a fabulous time on Halong Garden Bay Cruise. My suite was lovely and all members of staff were pleasant. There was nothing to complain about foodwise since it was all totally delicious. All the trips and activities were fabulous and the organization made it all so easy. I would have to say that it could have been even better if I had more free time, perhaps fewer events... The fishing villages, caves and islands were all spectacular though. I really loved the Taichi class on the sundeck every morning. In the end, the whole experience was excellent and I would definitely go to Halong again!
