We booked on to the Lan Ha bay - Halong Bay day trip and it was exactly what we'd hoped it would be. It cost us $29 per person and feel it was completely worth it. The day started at 8am where everyone met at...More

Taylah, thank you for the review that you posted. I have been trying so hard to get a tour from Cat ba to Halong but they all seem to leave from Hanoi (bus then trip). As we are staying in Cat ba we want to leave from here. Did the boat actually go into Halong bay or just stay around Lang Ha bay? Could you tell me the condition of the boat and can you book on line? That is another problem that I am facing. Kind Regards, Anne.

Do we need to book a 2-day 1-night boat tour from Catba Island in advance or can we book when we arrive for next-day departure for Halong Bay? What is a reasonable amount to pay for 2 people?
