The islands of Halong Bay are incredible. Loved seeing them. The cruise out on the junk was good and informative. I would pass on the kayak tour if you have breathing problems. If you kayak, the tour was interesting seeing the islands and the fishing village. Lunch on board the junk was good. ...

We booked an independent trip to Hanoi with a Vietnamese company and it was very good. The driver collected us just outside the port and we picked up the guide as we entered Hanoi. He was excellent and varied the itinerary to accommodate our requests. ...

Enjoyed this. Transferred to a junk where we had a Vietnamese fish meal. Sailed through the amazing Unesco site to the caves. Interesting visit to the caves then sailed back to the ship. ...

The tour was good. But the tour guide rushing us to get back. Then when we were at the cruise ship, she said we still had 1 hour to spend. We could go elsewhere. By that time, people just wanted to get back to the ship and said no. ...
