Full Day Ha Long Bay Tour with Kayaking/Bumboating
Aug 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide, Harry, was brilliant - both funny and engaging and made the tour 100% better.

The bus was a bit squeezy (for 3 hours from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay and then 3 hours back), but it was convenient that we were allowed to leave our bulky bags in the bus while we went on activities.

Lunch was pretty bad, had a lot of dishes but none were good.

Would say that Harry overall made the trip better, very insightful about Vietnam history and shared a lot of very cool facts that I see a lot of other guides skip. In fact, his facts were so interesting that other groups were listening in and asking Harry to repeat the information for them to hear!

Dear Krstnviola, Warmest Greetings from Dragonfly Cruise - a Brand of CharmingVietnamTravel.com. We would love to thank you so much for taking your time to leave beautiful words. It was a lovely time to work with you and we are very happy that Mr Harry did a good job to help your group had a great time in Halong bay day tour. This is Halong bay 1 day tour with national highway so that the transfer time is almost 7 hours on the bus. However, there is one stopover for travelers take a rest, go to clean room or grab some foods. If you have chance to comeback, you can try our another tour with only 5 hours both way. The transfer time is shorter but the price is higher. About our lunch, we serve all Vietnamese food, maybe Asian food is not suitable for you. We appreciated your feedback, we also try to change our menu to be better. All the best for your from Hanoi, Vietnam! Linda Customer Care Team of Dragonfly Cruise A member of Charming Vietnam Travel

Excellent Guide and good food
Dec 2018 • Family
We visited hanoi during the last week of dec 2018 and we had booked a day trip to Halong bay via Klook. It was managed arranged by Charming Vietnam Travels. I would give 5 stars to the guide. (probably his name is Sam our travel date 31-12-2018). He is excellent knows the geography well and he explained about the caves in detail. Couldn't visit the floating village . Our group of 9ppl were pure vegetarians and the vegetarian food served was very good.

1 Day Halong Bay Tour
Our tour guide Benjamin, called the hotel and left a message advising what time we were to be collected in the morning so we weren't sat in the lobby to long. The bus ride was extremely comfortable. The boat we took was amazing, so clean and comfortable. The food was brilliant and the staff so attentive. Overall a brilliant experience and I would def recommend using this tour company. Thank you Benjamin 😃
