Nice little cruise through such a beautiful place. Don't expect a lavish cruise. Very basic but very nice. The hosts were very accommodating to our travel plan changes and let us change our dates

A splendid experience. Pick up & drop at Hanoi was on time & easy. The boat was clean and comfortable. The host was very friendly & the guide Tuan was a funny guy. They had real patience & handled the guest well. We did trekking, swimming, kayaking & cave visiting as a part of this. It is not to be missed. The food made were really good & we enjoyed. I will recommend this to anyone. Feel free to book with them & you will be amazed.

The trip was very well orgnanised and the tour along Halong bay was great. The boat was very decent and the food fairly good but watch out at the end when paying as the bill was well over what we had consumed, d over actually. Also, wake up on Cat Bab islanz was a 6 to leave at 6.45 am, a bit early! Appart from that it was a very good time

Thank you very much for your very helpful review. Can you leave me the private email to explain more about the food there? Please remember that all the drinks you have to pay, we offer the set menu, if you order more, you have to pay also and the prices for everything on the boat, floating on the sea, it is more expensive than normal. Thank you again and hope to hear from you via email Best regards Luan

This is for the Aurora boat, 2 day tour. We were generally pleased with the stay and tour. However, the boat is not as it appears in photos. The accomodations were more rustic and rudimentary than appeared in photos. The common areas were much nicer than the rooms. It was fine, since we weren't in the bedroom much, but manage your expectations. Otherwise, the guide spoke English well and the activities were short, but fun. The tour operator we booked with told us there would be internet on the boat - that was not the case. Halong Bay is fantastic and the 2 day tour (really just 24 hours there) went by very quickly. If you have the time, I'd recommend looking into the 3 day/2 night version.

This being my first trip to the country of Vietnam I wasn't sure what to expect, but Vietnam Home was really wonderful and provided everything they promised. Halong Bay is gorgeous and our guide was a sweet as could be (I wish I could remember her name to say "thanks again"). Food was delish, and my room was cozy and comfortable. Be advised that you may not get the exact boat that is in the pics, however like the pics ours was a truly cool old traditional junk that was the best way to cruise around the calm waters of this amazing place. I wish I could have stayed longer! I highly recommend Vietnam Home, they were great!!

Dear all,
My name is Luan, I have worked for 10 years as local guide, and I travelled in many places especially in Vietnam. My biggest dream is to travel all over the world and be able to share my great knowledge about Vietnam. With my family, we decided to support each other and open Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay.
My main objectives was to include what the travellers want the most which is experiencing the authentic Vietnamese life and exploring local activities. Today, I consider that the authentic Vietnamese life has become quite rare. Whenever or wherever you travel you all want discover new customs and learn more about a culture. So this inspired me to the host and share my home with the travellers from all over the world.

=== MY FAMILY ===
Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay opened as the interfering cultural place to connect friends with new friends. The homestay couldn’t be more authentic without my family, all raised and born in Hanoi. As a longstanding Vietnamese tradition, my family includes three generations:
Me and my wife Nguyen Nhu Quynh (Name of the flower which only hatch in midnight of the lunar new year) – She works as the official staff. She also can speak Chinese because she lived in Shanghai for 3 years. We have a 20 month-old son together, his name is Do Truong An (Peaceful forever).
Nguyen Do Khai – My younger brother – a high school student.
Nguyen Viet Thuy – My father – He is a retired cook. He can help you with the Traditional Vietnamese Food with an authentic taste. If you want to learn how to cook some tasty Vietnamese dishes or enjoy a family dinner, feel free to inform me in advance then we can prepare the dinner for you.
Finally, my mother Do Ngoc Lan also the Housekeeping Executive – She has been working in three star and four star hotel for 15 years. So you can feel the cleanness, comfort and relaxation at my home.

My home is located in the Old quarter, the heart of Hanoi, surrounded by good restaurants and shops, in green, quiet streets within walking distance of Hoan Kiem Lake which is the perfect environment to enjoy your holidays.
The cosy rooms are lovely decorated with air-conditioning. Some of the rooms have a balcony with a nice view of the Old Quarter streets. The others rooms are located in the back of the building, which guarantees you a relaxing and quiet night.

=== EXTRAS ===
- Pick up service from and to the airport
- Renting or buying motorbike
- Laundry
- Family dinner
- Local Tour Arrangements

I have been working in tourism industry for 10 years. Traveling all around my country from the north to the south, experiencing all the local culture and authentic places of Vietnam.
Each year, I help more than 1000 guests who became my friends later to experience d the authentic places and real landscapes of Vietnam.
I always offer the best rates guaranteed. I have not had the working office or company. So I do not have to pay the government tax or operating fee. Moreover, I have the good relationship with all the hotel owners or tour suppliers. That is why I can offer not only the best local knowledge but the best rates also.
In order to make our own brand, I have created Local Tours Vietnam.
