"Halong Bay overnight cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

Really good package deal to see the highlights of Halong Bay. Our tour guide Jimmy was amazing, he really went above and beyond in his efforts to make us feel comfortable and he had a great spirit and attitude to life, he was a real pleasure. Even for me and my friend who are vegetarians, the food was great, and everything was arranged perfectly for us. We had a very straightforward pick-up from the hotel in the morning and we arrived to spacious cabins on the boat. Mattresses were maybe a bit firm but overall it was not too bad. Activities included hiking through a cave, kayaking Halong Bay, cruising Halong Bay, beach time and an informative cooking class, all in the two days that we were there! The Halong Bay 2 day 1 night cruise is a can’t-miss opportunity in Vietnam. Call V’Spirit and request Jimmy!

"Halong Bay overnight boat"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

Really had a good time with v’spirit cruise for 1 night! So many good activities such as trying island hopping, kayak and delicious food! Lots of time for relax on the boat after going to the islands and after rthe kayak. Cabin was so comfortable and quiet in the night for good night sleep. Our tour guide Thang/Win guided us well and provided lots of education about Halong Bay and Vietnam. He is a very good guide and he is careful and nice with all the guests. I highly recommend him for every tourist come to Hanoi! Very very nice!

"Halong Bay Overnight Cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

I had hoped that Halong Bay would be the cherry on top of my trip to Hanoi…and it was even better than that…a big thank you to Mr. Manh and his crew for giving me and the 16 other customers a really fantastic trip that will stay in my mind fondly. From the great guidance and transport to the activites and the food, everything was great. For the food there were so many different options which is good for vegetarians like me ;) I’m highly recommending this Halong bay 1 night cruise without a second thought.

Lunch was great and sleeping in the bay is perfect. Recommend!

"Amazing Halong Bay Overnight Cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

The staff at VSpirit were so attentive to our needs, right from the start during our booking until the end when we got off the boat. We were on a tight schedule but they made sure that a car was arranged for us after the boat so we could catch our flight. Our guide Jimmy was great and really made the trip extra special. He has an amazing knowledge of the area and its history and has a very entertaining way of telling it! I’ll be highly recommending this Halong Bay overnight trip! You can choose this Halong Bay 1 night cruise itinerary or 2 night cruise itinerary.

"My Best Meal and Tour Guide in Vietnam!"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

I was eventually convinced by online reviews to book a cruise even though I’d heard of a few cons, such as the levels of tourism and pollution etc. None of this ruined my Halong Bay 2 day 1 night cruise and we were happy that we selected V’Spirit to take us.Our tour guide Tan was amazing; a lovely person and very informative about the many places we visited. I’d definitely recommend her for any trips with this company. The views of the bay were fantastic but they were beaten by the amazing food. The chef did a brilliant job with catering for the different dietary requirements of the group. We had a nice celebration with a couple who got married, who had brought a cake for everyone to share. A really great experience on the Halong Bay boat!

"Amazing Experience at One of the Seven Wonders of Nature on V' Spirit 1 Night Cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

We had a very charming wooden boat with small but adequately-sized cabins. We had great activities on the first day, including a visit to Sung Sot Cave, which was very impressive, followed by swimming at the beach and a hike to the top of Titov island to get a glimpse of a few of the many limestone rocks of Ha Long Bay. We were anchored with about 35 other boats in the evening but there were more around during the day. We had an excellent dinner which was impressive considering the different dietary needs onboard. We stayed in Halong Bay overnight and rose early the next day for some tai-chi and an exploration of the bay by kayak. We had another great meal for lunch and headed back to the harbour. For a 3 star booking I thought everything onboard Halong Bay one night cruise was highly professional and excellent value for money.

"Peaceful and Beautiful Halong Bay 2 day cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

We had wonderful time with V'Spirit Cruise for Halong Bay 1 night cruise. We were so lucky to have Dan, our amazing guide who did an excellent job, along with all of the crew on board with their own individual jobs! They provided an enormous amount of delicious food for each meal. I was initially worried because a prior review from a vegan stated that she couldn’t find enough options for food onboard, but I didn’t find this to be the case. My husband is lactose intolerant and I’m a vegetarian and we felt like the crew did a FANTASTIC job providing us with a lot of different options, all at the same time, which is something they should be proud of. The only concern I had was the amount of plastic I saw floating in the Bay. Tourism is the secondary cause of such garbage but the country really needs a plan for how to reduce waste before the beauty is eradicated for people who live in and visit Halong Bay.

"Fantastic Halong Bay 2 Days 1 Night"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

This Halong Bay 1 night cruise was arranged for us from our guesthouse. The bus picked us up along with a few other guests around Hanoi. We went during the new year festival so there were no cars on the road! Very comfortable and clean rooms when we arrived. The food was amazing, as was the service, and our guide spoke fluent English which made everything very easy. We headed out to Thien Cung Cave and Titop Island, which were both amazing. I enjoyed tai chi on top deck of the boat with a constant beautiful view of Halong Bay. Our cooking lesson showed us how to make wrapped spring rolls. Just one downside was that we needed to board the cruise via a small boat. Enjoyed everything though and our Halong Bay overnight cruise was brilliant from beginning to end.

"Amazing night on Halong Bay 1 night cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

We had all of the boat to ourselves, which is good because were a group of 24! About the price, I think the offer was really good for us.We had a really good guide on the bus and boat from the start til finish, he explained very well everything that we will be doing. Very nice activities, kayaking Halong Bay will stay with me for a long time!Great crew, all very friendly and professional when allocating rooms. All the meals were so nice and drinks were reasonable price.I criticize only one thing and that is the room, maybe it needs some renovation! that would make it perfect. It is okay for one night but maybe a little bit of paint and new curtains would improve it!Yes there are many boats in Halong Bay, but it didn’t feel overcrowded, maybe just the cave and the beach, but you can just enjoy the view from the upper deck.Beautiful bay.

"2 days 1 night in Halong Bay"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

An essential part of any Vietnam vacation. This was a really comfortable cruise that sails through such pretty scenery. Although there were plenty of activities like kayaking, swiming, visiting the beach and cooking class, I never felt rushed at any point and could take in the scenery at my own leisure. The crew is always so attentive and welcoming of everyone; they put on a beautiful breakfast, lunch and dinner for us during the trip. I was lucky enough to grab a balcony room which was super clean and comfortable. Man was our tour guide for the trip and he was just brilliant: so funny, courteous, intelligent and always listened to the guests. I highly recommend this tour and the company for anyone looking to jumnp onto a Halong Bay 2 day 1 night cruise.

"Halong Bay 1 Night Cruise - Fantastic experience"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

Amazing experience on the Halong Bay 2 days 1 night cruise. Everyone was collected from their Hanoi hotels and taken to Halong Bay in a very modern and clean bus with no problems.Our tour guide was called Minh and he was brilliant. He was very considerate of everyone’s needs and included everyone in activities and talks about Vietnamese history.The activities included a visit to the Surprising Cave, a viewpoint on an island with the chance to swim too and a bit of kayaking. There was plenty of time to chill out on the top deck of the boat as well. Everyone ate together so you might need to be sociable.I’d certainly do this tour again with this company, it was very well organised and I had a wonderful time!

"Great Halong bay 1 night cruise"

Halong Bay 1 night cruise

Had a wonderful Halong Bay overnight cruise with Vspirit Cruise. We saw a lot of different islets and islands along the way and stopped at some for swimming and going to the beach. Everything was well organised from the company and from Man and Tan, our tour guides, who gave us great information about the culture and history of Vietnam. Really nice food for lunch, breakfast and dinner with lots of interesting activities like going to the cave and seeing the cooking class. Definitely recommend!
