We have a wonderful memory of Ha Long Bay, especially with our tour guide, Daisy. She is efficient, helpful in all ways. But I need to stress that she speak English very well, making our trip so much easier. The whole team was fantastic in its own was, making us so comfortable n happy.

Serene Scenery

The hard wotking crew on Swan Cruises make it possible for guests to experience the sublime beauty of Halong Bay. I personally did not enjoy all the planned activities and i am probably in the minority to comment that the food was bland. But my purpose to experience a phenomenal natural setting overshadows any negatives. David is an excellent guide who exhibited great care in meeting passenger needs.

Excellent cruise

We did the 1 night 2 day cruise with Marcus as our guide. The trip was well organised and Marcus did everything to make sure we had a great time and got the most from our time in Bai Tu Long. The boat was well maintained and we really enjoyed the balcony cabin, well worth the little bit of extra money. The time spent kayaking was just right and we got to swim from the beach at sunset before returning to the boat. All the activities were fun, although there is no pressure to take part if you would rather just chill on deck. The only negative was the cave visit, it was really packed with people and not worth seeing, it would have been better to stay on board and just relax. I spent a lot of time reading all the reviews of the different cruise companies and was glad I chose Swan as it was good value for money. If you want a fun cruise and enjoy mixing with other people rather than a romantic couples cruise Swan Cruises is a good choice. Thanks again to Marcus for making sure our trip was so enjoyable.

Efficient pick up. Swan offices at Halong rather cramped but soon on to our boat, and glad to be on a smaller vessel with enthusiastic staff. Some very beautiful scenery and we had a nice kayak trip. Thanks to all
