Lavender Cruises exceeded my expectations in all categories and I would definitely book them again. For those looking to book, staying two nights on the boat is a must, and opt for the deluxe/3 person room. Food, staff, and activities were all excelent. The bus ride from and to the hotel in Hanoi made everything extremely easy for us, especially with reliable Wifi and AC. Most importantly, I think the deluxe room with HUGE windows on two walls made for an umbelievable morning sunrise. I don't think I've ever quite had that great of a view from bed, and I didn't see a single other boat on the bay quite the same setup. Ti Top island was crowded, but every cruise takes you there because the view is worth the stairs. I would have probably prefered the small speed boats over the Pearl Farm on day 2, but for booking Lavender the day before from a cafe, I really was impressed.

Our trip in Halong Bay was filled with fun memories, our tour guide Alex took good care of us, from picking us up from the hotel to serving us meals, teaching us to make Vietnamese spring rolls and ensuring we had the best pictures. He did everything he could and with passion and it was nice to have a tour guide like him. Highly recommended even if it’s your first time there :)

The tour in Halong Bay was veru good, the ship, rooms, dinner room and food was great, the crew and guide tour very nice. Only you must be sure if the tour include or not the shuttle bus from Hanoi city, because is expensive if is not include. Bit was very good experience, I recommend totally.

They provide round-trip shuttle bus with additional price and you can order it via Whatsapp. Tour guide Bobby does many jokes during his speeches and it is unique and good. Everything was on time and the pace was suitable for both kids and adults. There were even old people in our group and it was also okay for them. Foods are tasty and you can buy additional drinks on the boat. You should take photos during sunset on the boat rooftop and the time span is very short! There is both wifi and 4g connection so you will be connected to internet all the time.
