    Halong Tours Booking amazing

    Just arrived home from our 10-day Vietnam tour my boyfriend and I booked on Grabone (NZ) with Halong Tours Booking. Despite being sceptical as I had difficulty finding the tour on Tripadvisor, there is not one bad thing I can say about this tour. 

    As someone else has mentioned this is NOT a group tour. It's a trip that's booked for you by the company and includes hotels, airport transfers, transport and tours. For us this was perfect as it meant that before the trip we organised a few changes (eg we went South-North rather than North-South, we also took the plane instead of the night train and spent a couple of extra nights in Ho Chi Minh and an extra night in Hanoi). Tracy, who we were in contact with before the tour always replied within a day and it was never a problem to accommodate for the changes we wanted to make (I do recommend the plane instead of night train, as well as the extra nights, especially an extra night in Hoi An would have been nice). 


    The day tours booked for us were all of a high quality.... ranging from bus tours to private tours with just the two of us, a driver and an English speaking guide. They all included lunch. 

    The hotels were all fantastic and perfectly located. 

    The airport transfers were all great, always on time, nice air conditioned cars, no issues.

    Everything was organised amazingly and with our added on days we had a perfect mix of free time and organised tours. I would recommend an extra day in Halong Bay if you have the time. (While we were in Halong Bay we decided we wanted to spend an extra night on the cruise and managed to get in contact with Halong Bay Tours. It was about 10 at night and they were super helpful and willing to help us organise the extra night so it was all stress-free. In the end the price would have been to high so we went back to Hanoi as originally planned, but it was just an example of how helpful they were).


    All in all I cannot recommend this tour enough. It's not for you if you want a bus-tour type trip, but if you don't know much about Vietnam and want a cheap trip where the main attractions are all planned for you I say go for it, and enjoy.
