Amazing location – Worth the long drive!
Amazing location – Worth the long drive!

Halong Bay is one of the 'must see' locations in the world. Amazing collection of islands scattered through the bay - rock and jungle covered. The weather was very hot and humid (as expected) and there was a lot of haze during the day (easing in the evening) which limited long range visibility. Lots of other boats on the bay. A long drive from Hanoi - about 3.5 hours each way (with a...

Lovely hotel and value for money – with alova gold
Lovely hotel and value for money – with alova gold

It's a middle size boat with 3 decks. The room is a bit small and the a/c does not work 24 hours. There is no TV in the room but it's better to stay on the deck to enjoy the view. Food is good, 1 Vietnamese food for lunch, 1 seafood for dinner, 1 american breakfast and 1 lunch on-shore. We had a great time kayaking in the bay, as well as a wonderful relaxation on the deck during the night...

We did the 2D1N junk cruise with Alova Gold from 11th to 12th April 2012 recently. Overall, we were rather satisfied with the cruise, guide, meals, activities... The minibus transfer from Hanoi (and bk) was included free (which is nice)... no problem with the bus at all... Our guide, Nghe (aka Peter) followed us right from hotel picked up, ship boarding and during the cruise. So overall,...

We had a great tour guide called Man. He had only been doing this trip for a few months but what he lacked in knowledge he made up for with enthusiasm  and nothing was too much for him to make our trip enjoyable. We did worry about the boat before we arrived in Halong, but we didn't need to. The boat was probably one of the best there (and there was a few). The crew of Alova Gold Cruises...

We took the three day + two night cruise and quite enjoyed it. The food was very well prepared and we also loved the cooking classes. While the boat is less than a year old, there are still some minor problems like the bathroom door wouldn't close as it was warped and need the attention of a carpenter. The staff members were very friendly and always keen to help out with any concerns or...

Trivsam mindre crouser och fantastisk personal

Blev upphämtade vid vårt hotell för resa ut till Halong. Liten båt för transport ut till Alova, en liten familjär crouser med trevlig och kunnig personal. Välkomstdrink, god lunch och kanoting ut bland dom vackra kalkstensöarna. Såg vackra grottor och gick trappsteg uppför ett berg för en fantastisk utsikt. Happy hour på kvällen efter den goda middagen. Såg flytande byar. Fint...

Excellent 3-star cruiseship (Alova Gold Cruises)

Alova was recommended to us by Darian Culbert and it did not disappoint. I don't have any negative comments about this ship, the staff were very friendly, the food was very good and we enjoyed all the activities through out our trip. The best thing was that everyone on the ship had to sit on the same table for meals, which I think was great because it gave us a chance to...

Rejuvenating trip with Alova Gold Cruises

Only tiring period on this trip was probably the journey to and from Ha Long bay with Alova Gold Cruises, but the bus was comfortable enough. Our tour guide Hui ( Johnny ) was courteous, honest and genuinely interested to show was Vietnam has to offer. The Junk was average in size, reasonably clean, comfortable rooms. The highlight was Ha Long Bay, relaxing and enjoying...
