Hello, I am looking to book a 3 day, 2 night cruise to ha long bay/cat ba island. I was wondering if the transfer would pick up us up at the airport in hanoi instead of a hotel. There would be 9 of us looking to get picked up on January 8th! Thanks

Our transfer only picks up from the old quarter, but if you book a private transfer we can pick you their with surcharge. May I know your flight time?

Cruise and location problems

1). No link to make payment

2). It’s impossible to read where (exactly) the cruise will begin and end. The information pops up and is impossible to read. You must know this…? I can’t tell if I need transfers going to or coming back the next day. We are arriving on April 17 at 08:00 in Halong Bay……leaving April 18 at 15:00. Can I confirm the cruise and please advise what transfers, if any, are needed.

03 Dec, 2023 Reply

Depend on cruise available we will send the payment together or not. Please advise which boat are you interested in so I can send you exactly address and rate with payment.
