"Very nice accommodations provided. "

The boat was quiet, which helped with falling asleep at night. The small boat allowed everyone to get to know each other well, providing close intimacy. The views were great. It was nice to be able to open the windows to look out at the scenery or to go above to the sun deck. In addition, the activities… More

Cruise…pretty, romantic, good food, nice room, there was supposed to be karaoke and dancing but it never happened. No one was supervising the squid fishing activity. More activities on the boat would have been good.

"Need to improve"

Cruise quality: 8 beautiful surroundings
Food: 6 more than enough food but wasn’t too good
Cabin: 6 we had a good bit of cockroaches and insects in our room
Staff: 9 all friendly and helpful especially Viet
Activities: 3. Cave and beach stops we’re very crowded and there should be some coordination between boats so not everyone arrives at same time

"Good trip"

Food and guides were fantastic. Enjoyed kayaking especially morning kayak to a cave with smalll group. Boat very clean. Over all loved the cruise. Will recommend it to others.
Room too small for a triple - no room to move. Third day cave was not great, too busy.

"Halong was very good!"

Arrival in Halong was a bit messy, but that is just the way it is, I guess. Too many people to manage, that's part of the deal
In the bay we enjoyed a lot, I think our boat was a bit old, but we knew it because we booked one of the cheapest options... Food was very good and plenty. The crew was very… More

"Good boat"

Food was good, Tour guides were great and had excellent English, it was good not having many people on the one boat.
No safety briefing once on board. Kayak “tour” was much longer and harder than indicated. Not enough space for all passengers to participate in cooking class.

"We had a great trip through bai tu long bay thanks to Kien"

Amazing trip through bai tu long bay. Our guide Kien was very enthusiastic and explained a lot. We would have preferred more traditional Vietnamese food on the tour.

"2 days halong bay"

We were a group of three ( me and my two teenagers sons) sharing a cabin. Cabin was comfortable enough, no balcony but there is no real need for the few hours you stay on the boat in two days. Private bathroom in cabin is good enough too.

Guide was very nice and fun ( Hui? , sorry I can not remember… More

Questions & Answers

Hello, could you please confirm me that the transport for Hanoi is included in the price for a day trip to Bai Tu Long with Swan Cruise ? Many thanks
Response from BestPrice Travel
Dear Clea, Our day trip to Bai Tu Long bay on Swan cruise is included. When is your travel date? BestPrice
David Bong
Quick questions as our group is considering some details. 1. Deluxe Cabin - if we would like to have it with private balcony, how much extra would it cost? 2. What is the difference between Ha Long Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay? As I have noticed there is some price difference between operators at these two areas.
Response from BestPrice Travel
Hi 1. It cost 30USD to upgrade from Deluxe Cabin to Deluxe Balcony Cabin 2. Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay are different area. But look the same. While Halong bay is famous with Titop Island, Sung Sot Cave, Bai Tu Long Bay is famous with natural, less touristic. Since Bai Tu Long Bay is located far from the shore so the wave is stronger than Halong Bay Cheers
Roger Blum
Hello, I am interested in booking the 3Day cruise with Swan in September. I have a couple of questiosn: Are the transfer between Hanoi and Halong Bay and visitor visa included? At the top of your web page, it say "Free shuttle bus HN - HL- HN". But in the middle of the page, it lists the transfer under "Price Excludes". I hope to transfer to Ninh Binh after the cruise. Is there any option to change the transfer from Hanoi to Ninh Binh after we disembark? Are non-alcoholic drinks, like tea also excluded from the price? Are life jackets provided free of charge? Regards, Roger
Response from BestPrice Travel
- Hi, normally, the transfer Hanoi- Halong- Hanoi is not included, however, due to promotion, we offer free shuttle bus Hanoi- Halong- Hanoi when booking Swan Cruise - The transfer Halong- Ninh Binh by private car: 4 seat private car: 95USD 7 seat private car: 105USD 16 seat private car: 115USD

Might I know what's the cancellation policy? When's the deadline if we want/need to cancel due to change of plans/ unforeseen events?
Response from BestPrice Travel
Hi, I am pleased to send you the cancellation policy: More than 15 days prior to check-in: FREE of charge From 15 to 3 days prior to check-in: 50% of total rates Less than 72 hours prior to check-in: 100% of total rates No-Show: 100% of total rates So I suppose that you should cancel the cruise 15 days prior departure date to avoid the charge
