It was a great tour, we even got to visit an oyster farm to see how pearls were made. The guide Kholia was very entertaining, he spoke good English, was funny and jovial and he even entertained us in the bus trip back despite the long day. The kayaking at Ha Long Bay was absolutely beautiful, that was favorite and also the caves were beautiful. However our lunch on the boat was disappointing… was meh… least favorite part.

A 12+ hour tour including transfer from/to Hanoi : it’s a must, expect to be (happily) tired. Very well organized: after a good lunch, our great, helpful and super friendly guide Tiger brought us to Surprise Cave, then kayaking at Luon Cave - 30k additional to pay onboard though it was the best part of it !! - , TiTop mountain with hike to the top. Eventually cruise back to the harbor at sunset. Amazing day!
