What to Expect
Cruise UNESCO World Heritage Site Halong Bay 

Upon your arrival, our private guide and car/van will greet you at your port of choice with a smile and welcome sign! After a transfer to Tuan Chau wharf, we’ll board the Private Junk for a  

6 hour tour through the heart of Halong Bay. Prepare for breathtaking beauty as we journey through these seascapes! The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay is renowned the world over for its  

forest-topped limestone islands and crystal water. Choose to swim, kayak, or simply take in the ethereal views. 

Explore "Surprising" Cave! 

Our route winds through stunning landscape and offers incredible views of thousands of limestone karts and the most beautiful islets such as Stone Dog, Fighting Cocks, and Incense Burner. As we cruise to the heart of the Bay, you will have the opportunity to explore Sung Sot Cave and to see the surprising (literal translation of Sung Sot) interior!  

Sung Sot is the largest and most renowned of Halong’s many caves. Your expert guide will share information about the formation of Halong Bay and help you explore the fascinating cave famed for its breathtaking beauty. As we make our way back to the Junk, we will hop in our kayaks to explore a hidden lagoon! 

Enjoy Lunch In Stunning Surroundings 

A delicious seafood lunch will await you upon your return! Enjoy  

your fresh meal in one of the most incredible landscapes in Vietnam, and even the world! Next we’ll cruise to Titop island for swimming, sunbathing, or a journey up to the top for a worthwhile view! On return to the Junk we’ll make our way back to Tuan Chau wharf for a private transfer to your cruise ship. We are expert time-keepers, so no need to worry about missing your departure – simply sit back and allow your guide to return you to port in plenty of time.
