Questions & Answers

What if we are not staying at a hotel in the old quarter? Is there a designated pick up area?
Response from BestPrice Travel
Hi If you do not stay at the Hanoi Old Quarter, please discuss with our travel consultant for meeting point ( maybe at the Hanoi Opera House, or maybe at our partner's hotel) Please advise how many people in your group, and the departure date of your cruise tour! Cheers
Hi, Where is the pick up location at the hanoi old quarters?
Response from BestPrice Travel
Hi We pick-up at every hotel located in Hanoi Old Quarter Cheers
Price for 2 adults, 2 children, ages 10 and 14? I wonder if the transfer back can be to Tam Coc instead of Hanoi?, or is it possible for us to make our own arrangements to stay overnight at a local hotel and get a transfer back with one of your buses the next day (to Ninh Binh/Tam Coc)?
Response from BestPrice Travel

Hi, I was just wondering if you offer any day cruises from ha long bay? Or if we could meet you at the port instead of coming from Hanoi, because we are already in ha long Bay, thank you! :)
Response from BestPrice Travel
Dear Samuel , As our cruise starts from Halong Bay, of course you can book our cruise from Ha Long Bay. We will pick you up at Cruise Pier. Acturally, it can save you transfer fee from Hanoi to Halong Bay. Besides, I wonder what cruise are you looking for? If you still don’t have any ideal, I can offer you some cruises. Could you please let me know the class of service you looking for: luxury, mid rage, budget? Or any special requirement?

We are interested in the Swan Cruise Bai Tu Long day cruise. We will be coming from the Celebrity Millenium at the cruise ship dock. Our ship leaves at 22:00 hrs, so we need to ensure we are back at the ship by 19:00 hrs latest. Can you advise on above and the cost for 4 adults Kind regards Rod Mann

Dear Rod Mann, Warmest greeting from BestPrice Travel. The Swan Cruise leaving pier between 12:00 - 12:30 PM then back to pier around 17:30 - 18:00, it is enough time for you back to ship dock before 19:00.
