Would highly recommend.
I've would highly recommend Garden Bay cruises. The level of communication was excellent as I had to change arrangements a couple of times beforehand. We had a balcony room which I would definitely recommend. Just bring able to sit outside and watch the beautiful scenery pad by was amazing. The room was very clean and comfortable. Good Aircon and a nice bathroom with great water pressure.The food was excellent and plentiful. We went for the 2 day, 1 night option which was plenty, although there is so much included in the itinerary it could feel a little overwhelming. I decided to sit out the kayaking in favour of just sitting on the balcony enjoying the scenery. It's a very relaxed cruise and the staff were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and they made you feel very welcome.

Wonderful experience
Beautiful surroundings. Beautiful old-style wooden boat. Amazing food! The rooms with balcony are just perfect! Enjoyable activities. Excellent service. Also nice to have the option to sometimes just stay on the boat when there were so many activities. Could not expect more for this price. Alcohol and other drinks are a lot more expensive than ni rest of Vietnam. You can bring maybe ½-1 liter of extra water per day so you don't have to buy all the time.

8/10 Very good

The cruise was lovely. Felt so short. We did an overnight cruise, and I was surprised at how many activities the boat operators were able to fit inside that time. My only gripe (and I'm not sure that this is something that the operators can help) is that all the points at which we were allowed to disembark were packed with tourists. I wish wehad been able to see the less beaten path a bit. Not sure ifthe tourist areas are designated and regulated though. Otherwise, the food was generally average, though the barbeque dinner was great. And thesmoothies were delicious. Drinks were suprisingly cheap considering the monopooly on the market lol.

En tur der bør opleves, på besøg i Vietnam
En fantastisk tur, super service og alle vores forventninger blev opfyldt, fuldt ud. Maden var en kæmpe oplevelse og rigtig lækker. Der indgik en halv times massage, hvilket var dejligt ovenpå dagens oplevelser. Fin arrangeret tur, med indblik i naturen og det vietnamesiske folk. Stor ros til alt personale.

Halong Bay Boat
The boat is a little bit old, which is older than the photo that we saw on the web. The lighting in cabin is very week, the bathing water sudden hot and sudden cold. All the crews work very hard, one person can be a small boat driver and a Tai Chi instructer as well. They do all their best to make our trip full of joyful. Tony is a professional tour guide, his arrangement is excellent. Besides the hard ware, the meal, the services and the arrangement are good.

생각보다 조그만 배
스탭들은 친절하나 배 노후 됨. 음식은.괜찮은 편 투어 중 방문 하는 동굴은 정말 작았음. 야간 낚시는 스탭도 없이 진행 됨 스탭들과의 영어 소통은 크게 문제 없음.
