How can I make payment for the trip?

Using on real past customers’ experience and due to the busy and tight schedule and limitation of internet / 4gb connection in Halong – Lan Ha Bay to guarantee a smoothly trip we require the customer to make the payment.

Payment completely in advance to avoid these common issues/ problems which will be affected seriously your precious time with us such as:

  • Unsuccessful payment due to the internet connection.
  • Being stressful and confused about the payment method after the trip.
  • Problem with customer own credit card (Invalid card, insufficient funds)

Hence we would suggest you with 2 following payment options: 

  1. Secure Online payment method ( additional fee goes up to 3% ): we will send the payment link.
  2. Travel directly to our office in Hanoi – 4th floor, 23 Hang Voi Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi: pay by credit card (Visa/Mastercard) – 3% bank fee extra or pay by cash (VND or USD). Travel directly to our cruise office in Hanoi before your travel date at least three day to make the payment. 

The price for room rate does not include the transfers from Hanoi – Halong – Hanoi

We arrange transfer service to pick up/ drop-off visitor from hotels in Hanoi Old Quarter only. Pick up time is 8:00 am – 8:45 am every morning with large options including private vehicle to the shuttle limousine car and up 45 seater bus for a large group. (Please contact us directly to get your specific pick-up/drop-off time). You are recommended to have breakfast and be ready at hotel’s lobby.

  • Pick up service at Hanoi Airport/ Haiphong airport is available with extra cost, it can be handled by private service only, and shuttle limousine bus could not pick up or drop off you there.
  • Pick up the request at Hanoi train station (Sapa arrival) is not available, as you arrive early at 5:00 am from Sapa while our bus- pick up time at 8:00 am. For further hote (out of Hanoi Old Quarter), you can choose to get back at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter or our office location: 23 Hang Voi Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi before 8:00 am. 
  • What time does Limousine Bus pick up/drop off guests in Hanoi?

Depending on hotels you will stay in Hanoi, the time may be different. But normally, the Shuttle Limousine Bus will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter around 8:00 to 08:45 AM and drop you off around 15:00 to 15:30 PM in Hanoi Old Quarter.

How far is this from Hanoi to Halong Bay and how long does it take from Hanoi to Halong bay?

It is around 200 kms from Hanoi to Hanoi and round trip is 400 kms. Thanks to new highway Hai Phong – Quang Ninh, the trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay is now cutting down to only 2.5 hours. 

Break times at least 1 time each way: Why we have to stop over at the middle of the way for 1 time/ way?

Vietnamese road rules stipulate that all drivers on journeys exceeding 100 km must have at least one break to ensure motor vehicle safety, and  the health of the driver.

Our driver starts working from 5 AM and should give him a short time for breakfast and refresh his health.

Time for personal needs such as toilets, breakfast, coffee or tea.

How long do we have to wait for the return trip to Hanoi?

Customer will be advised to wait at least 30 min or up to 1 hour after the trip to join the drop off service back to Hanoi basing on the traffic conditions. To save up and reduce the total cost for the trip, our company and all other travel companies must use 1 bus or 2 buses for round trip. Please be aware of this and should not claim us if you have to wait longer than usual for the transfer back Hanoi. To avoid of that you should consider to take private car.          

Why we can not take the same bus for 2 ways?  

We have a variety of vehicles of the same quality but will vary in size and number of seats. As mentioned above to save and reduce the total cost we have to use a car to take guests from Hanoi to Halong Bay and welcome guests the day before back Hanoi. Depending on the number of guests per specific date we will adjust the car accordingly so customers can not be sure to go both journeys with the same car. Be understanding and do not blame us for this with refund as it is unfair and unacceptable.

Why some customers claimed the drinks are expensive?

Can not compare the prices on boat with other part in Vietnam. If you buy them at stores, cafes or budget hotels, surely they will be much cheaper. But when you use them at restaurants and 5-star hotels, the price is certainly higher than many times because the investment is huge and each product imposes other costs. Especially on yachts, the costs will be much higher and especially for overhead expenses (costs can not be directly attributed to the product or service produced) of this type of business, money for building ship, taxes, fuel costs, bank charges, much higher salary for manpower etc.)
