This one is a must try when your visiting Northern Vietnam or Hanoi in particular. The tour includes hotel pick up, transportation, food-(drinks not included), english speaking guide. You can choose between 2 activities bamboo boat ride or kayaking. Plus a cave tour for about an hour. It was a joiners tour with a group of 20 people from different countries. It was an amazing experience. Everything was pretty convenient and the tour guide took care of everything we needed. The boat was pretty clean and the food was great. The boat for the cruise have a top deck for a better view of the bay. A big shout out to our tour guide who took care of everything for us. He made sure that everyone is well settled though his english is not that good he made up for it for being funny and joyful all through out. He also warned us about the brand of water and kind of fruits that we should avoid buying from the local vendors. Overall it was an amazing experience and for the price we paid for, it was all worth it.
