PRICE PER PERSON, IN USD
Luan is a fantastic point of contact for our Halong Bay trip, and did everything to ensure my friends and I had a good time and are well-prepared for the short get-away. The staff on the cruise are very friendly and welcomed us with kind words, great alttitude and good food!
This was a great experience - A cruise on the Halong Bay is not to be missed when visiting Hanoi. The cabins are well appointed and the bathrooms are great. I would definitely recommend this tour. Pickup from your hotel was included as well as all food. I would recommend taking some alcohol on this trip as it is not included and the boat charges an awful lot! Also remember to pack your swimming trunks!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
