What you can expect

On this private tour everything is taken care of for you. You’ll be picked up at your hotel by your private guide, who will drive you through beautiful countryside along the Red River Delta on the outskirts of Hanoi. Along the way your host can point out places of interest and tell you the stories behind the sights.

Your leisurely car journey takes you through Bac Ninh province, the homeland of the “Quan Ho folk song”, one of Vietnam’s World Culture Heritages. Your host can tell you more. After a short break with refreshments it’s time to drive on to Ha Long bay.

Even from the car, when you first encounter this stunningly beautiful bay, you instantly realize why “Ha Long” means "Bay of Descending Dragons". All 1600 islands and surrounding cliffs are made of limestone, which has been steadily eroded over the centuries to create amazing rock formations - towering pillars topped with greenery. It’s an outstanding example of ocean karst landscaping, the process of rock erosion by the continuous movement of the sea.

We arrive at Tuan Chau island at around midday, warmly welcomed by your crew. This is the start of your four-hour luxury cruise and the chance to get close to the awesome visions of outstanding natural beauty. A delicious seafood lunch will be served when you are completely relaxed on board. And after lunch, it is the time to explore the Thien Cung cave (Heaven Palace cave) and admire thousands of breathe taking stalactites and stalagmites.

Your private host can safely guide you to the most spectacular geological formations. Time for more photos and complete wonderment.

At the end of the cruise your private guide will drive you back to your hotel.
