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

Halong Bay with Swan Cruises

Great experience of 2D1N cruise at Halong Bay with Swan Cruises, very professional guide Kien and supporting service staff onboard that made this one of the highlights of my 8D North Vietnam trip. Food is outstanding with great activities kayaking, morning exercise, caving, cooking demo thrown in. To prevent destruction of limestone formations that take millions of years, it is necessary to build buffer or barriers to ensure proper conservation and preservation of this natural heritage in the beautiful cave, high tourist volume is having huge negative impact on the ecosystem here which needs special effort, one way is to have a carrying capacity to control the numbers of visiting tourists.

Daisy is a pretty girl who is very very sweet, sincere , patient , responsibility, hardworking...... can’t finish all the good words to describe her she always smiles and talk to us very friendly. Like a bird fly here fly there busy doing things for us. She made our trip very happy and memorable. If I get chance to come to Vietnam again. I’m sure I will look for her to be my tour guide. I recommend this cute little girl for you. And thank you very much Daisy. God bless you
