we really enjoyed our trip to Halong bay, everything was excellent from start to finish. On the first day we would have little more time to relax on board and enjoy scenery. However both cave trip and kayaking were brilliant. We thought Binh was an excellent Tour guide – He was very professional, his knowledge and English very good and i really enjoyed his humor when telling us useful information. We really liked talking to him about life in Vietnam. Thank you!

June 23, 2017

Roy was an excellent host. His knowledge of all areas covered in the tour, including land service portion was brilliant. He was interesting and humorous to listen to and helped all members of the tour feel comfortable and welcome. The audio guide system was easy to use with our smart phone and very informative about Halong bay in French, it was useful.

June 23, 2017

I would like to say thank you for a wonderful tour. We love the boat with sails, very traditional. Our guide Happy was top class – he was friendly, helpful and had a good sense of humor. We madly enjoyed learning about Vietnam and Vietnamese culture and life from now. Thank you.

June 23, 2017

A fantastic trip, comfortable transfer from hotel and back in hi-class minivan, the way back by highway, so fast to reach Hanoi. We chose this cruise due to be advertised with interesting itinerary to Surprising cave and visit tunnel on bamboo boat, and were not at all disappointed

Memorable trip
We wanted to go with some group and Genesis was suggested by our hotel .
I must say it was a fantastic suggestion . DONE EVER MISS IT .
Our tour guide THANG was outstanding . He was just perfect to be a guide . Explained well , was very understanding and caring , made the trip very enjoyable . Taken care of brake requirements and there was no hush push . He was very loyal to his company also
A true ” WINNER” and asset to the company
The boat was also very nice , captain was calm and diligent and the other crew in the boat was also nice and courteous
Food was very tasty .
We went to the cave ; like the name suggests it was simply amazing and memorable
Thanks Genesis for giving each family a packet of coffee .
Suggestion :
we climbed up and down the the hill to the cave steps in one go . could give two or three brakes – in our group as well as other groups there were people who were breathless .
Inside the cave there is a lot to experience .If the time inside the cave could be extended by 15 minutes – 5 minutes in three spots for self exploration or to enjoy the spot so that the memory remains and it will be remarkable .

We wanted a day tour in Halong Bay but most tours are short with only 3-4 hours spent at the bay.
This tour was recommended by our hotel, even though it was more expensive than others it was worth it.
Everything about the tour was wonderful and well planned. The group only consists of 8 guests. Thang, our tour guide was very fluent in English so there’s no communication issues. The vehicle and cruise were both safe, clean and comfortable. Lunch served onboard was quite delicious.
The scenery around the bay was spectacular. We also travelled in a small bamboo boat to a smaller cave which was a nice experience. The small hike (45min) to the Amazing Cave was really amazing, the cave was majestic and beautiful, for me that was the highlight of the trip 🙂
The cruise ended with a sunset party with some light refreshments. Overall, we spent about 5-6 hours at the bay.
Thank you for your effort, we really enjoyed the trip! I would recommend this trip to anyone.

December 14, 2017

Firstly, the tour guide was very experienced and fluent in his use of english, which made the trip super enjoyable. The transport provided to and fro the destinations were also of top quality, featuring wifi in both the limousine bus and boat trip, cushioned and spacey. The crew on board the boat were also very friendly and understanding, the lavatories on the boat was very clean – very much like a 5 star hotel toilet – the boat they provided also stood out among the rest(in a good way). The meal on board the cruise was also very tasty, with an amazing scenery.
Overall it really was an unforgettable and enjoyable experience. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

December 14, 2017

Great tour! Really happy, with the everything was great during tour very good keep doing what you are doing. The itinerary was better than any Cruise company we know when book the tour with rowed boat and the huge mountain cave, especially we took them in the less-crowded time. The way moving was amazing with superb scenery, it was must-do tour.

December 14, 2017

From pick up to drop off, the service was excellent. Having been overwhelmed by the number of different tour companies offering day trips to Halong Bay, we decided to take a gamble on paying a little more for Genesis. Our gamble paid off and we were we really glad with our choice!
It wasn’t quite the glamarous Hollywood limo we had hoped for, but the transport was certainly high quality, extremely comfortable and spacious, with good in-drive service provided!
We were picked up around 8am in the morning and arrived in Halong Bay just before noon. Plenty of time to fit in all of the day’s activities without feeling rushed, especially if you’re short on time in Hanoi or the surrounding area.
There was never a dull moment on this trip thanks to the excellent service and care provided by Ken and the crew from start to finish. Ken made us feel very welcome, was very informative and made for a great guide, keeping us well entertained with his knowledge, insights and humour throughout the day.

Well well well. Vietnam is a magical place with very beautiful people. You do have to be careful with which tours you take. What varies is the tour guides and the detailed descriptions they give you of what your doing. Some tour guides will show you your meal and just leave or some tour guides will not say much at all. Genesis is pretty darn good. The people they hire and the knowledge they share make for an exciting and comfortable tour. Our tour guide “Kong” was extremely nice funny and you felt at ease with him. He made sure you were enjoying yourself and also not forgetting stuff or leaving stuff behind. Now the actual tour itself is perfect. Some suggest staying in baking bay for a night but it’s totally fine as a one day activity. I prefer it since the hotels on the boat did not seem very exciting or good. The cave tours were amazing and the kayaking or the bamboo boat rides were really really fun!!! I highly suggest using these guys they are not pushy nor are they rude. They are genuine people trying to earn a living and so they put lots of effort into their work.

Ha Long Bay Tour with Genesis
Great quality tour. Informative & thoughtful.
The tour guides go above and beyond to make your experience great.
Our boat was beautiful & cozy with fans & AC.
The food was very tasty & better than I expected.
Highly recommend!

July 25, 2018

Great experience with Genesis Tours in our day trip in Halong Bay. They pick us up in a well equipped bus with WiFi connection (kids were happy) and took us to the Harb our in Halong Bay. The boat was well equipped, food was delicious and massive…Roy, our tour guide was great! He went all the way to keep us happy and well informed. Thanks Genesis and especially Roy for an amazing journey !

July 25, 2018

Fabulous relaxing day !
We were picked up at our hotel in a very comfortable modern minivan. Our host provided timely and pertinent information along our way to Ha Long bay, but most importantly, did not talk the entire time – allowing us time to take in the countryside and enjoy the journey.
Once we arrived a the harbor, we realized that we were on one of the nicest boats available – many others did not look sea worthy. Again the staff gave us just the right amount of interaction.
Ha long Bay is a natural beauty, we did not feel rushed, we enjoyed a lovely lunch aboard the boat and enjoyed a wonderful surprise at the cave we visited.

HIGHLY recommend this particular tour company!

Halong Bay Vietnam
Genesis company.
I used this company to book a day tour and Halong Bay cruise today. My tour guide Danny was superb right from the start. He was very welcoming and most helpful to me ALL day. He really made my day!

He gave a very good commentary and I learned more about Vietnam history and other facts from Danny than I have previously heard during my stay.

Danny explained the itinerary very clearly and during the day we were served delish and ample Vietnamese food.

I cannot speak highly enough of his services.

Danny is a credit to Genesis Tours on Hanoi

Halong Bay Luxury Day Tour
I booked the Day Tour with Genesis. The tour guide was Kong who was the best tour guide ever. He was extremely knowledgeable and very funny. Travelling on my own, he made you feel at home and always looked out for you – particularly when it came to climbing the 134 steps to the cave. He always looked out for you to see if you’re okay. Yes, you guessed it, I’m not the fittest person! The food on the boat was plentiful! The kayaking and bamboo boat ride was fun! Everything about the tour went smoothly and that was due to the professionalism of Kong and the rest of the Genesis team. I absolutely recommend Genesis and Kong and his team! From start to finish, it was definitely a memorable tour ever! Thank you Kong and Genesis!

August 3, 2018

Our family took a day trip to Ha Long Bai and what a day it was! Our guide Danny was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make our day as perfect and informational as he could! He was wonderful with my daughter and made sure at all times she was smiling and laughing, he told us all about Vietnam and finished our day with the perfect sunset party to end our trip! It was the perfect day with great people and beautiful sites! 100% recommend using genesis cruises and definitely recommend Danny as a guide! Thankyou for such a wonderful day and making our trip amazing!

Astonishing day tour in Ha Long Bay
I am glad to go with Genesis Cruise company on package through my hotel. The shuttle bus was already impressive than others we saw with amazing services like Wi-Fi. The tour guide Mr. Hung was so kind,Humble,polite, and knowledgeable and took great care of the guests. They really exceed my expectations. I recommend anyone looking to tour Ha Long Bay to go with Genesis cruise.

September 11, 2018

You can’t go wrong with this Cruise
We were lucky to go with this Cruise company on package with our local hotel. The pickup bus was already impressive than others we saw. The tour guide Mr Hung was polite and knowledgable and took great care of the guests. We took off earlier than the other cruises and it meant we got to explore the caves and other sights much before it got crowded. Super recommend this cruise company.

September 11, 2018

Ha Long Bay day tour
The tour was well organised and well done to our tour guide Mr Cong for taking us around and sharing with us the history of Vietnam and Ha Long Bay. We paid slightly more but was thankful we made that choice. The group was smaller compared to others and we had our own table and space on the cruise.
Overall very good and will recommend anyone looking to tour Ha Long Bay to go with Genesis cruise.

Amazing Halong Bay trip
Dear Team,

It’s been one year almost but still the feeling of the Halong Bay tour with you makes me feel happy. Whenever I scroll the images from my gallery , the happiness is just mesmerizing.
Extremely grateful for your wonderful arrangements of trip and giving such a amazing experience to me.

Once again thank you so much for all your help.

September 11, 2018

Fantastic Trip!
This was our first time to Ha Long Bay and we wanted to do a day trip to see the islands. Researching a trip was extremely overwhelming however, we found Genesis (The Luxury Cruise) when searching online.

The company usually pick people up from Hanoi and travel to Ha Long (which is roughly a 3 hour journey) We contacted them explaining that we were staying in Ha Long and they arranged a return taxi ride from our hotel.

We met our guide Li and his colleague Peter on board the boat. They were extremely friendly, their English was excellent and they were both very knowledgeable. We were severed a lovely lunch, which was included in the price.

The first stop was Sung Sot Cave (aka “Surprising Cave”) which was incredible. 150 steps but well worth it throughout! The second stop was at the water cave called Hang Luon. You are given the option to either kayak or travel on a bamboo boat.

Before the end of the boat trip we were offered a mixture of fruit, a drink and biscuits and the opportunity to relax on the deck.

We could not fault the day everything was what we wanted and more. Thanks again

September 11, 2018

Amazing one day trip to Ha Long Bay
Thanks to Genesis for this day tour. Our tour guide Danny, was very nice and energetic. The tour didn’t feel rushed and we had enough time to relax in the boat to enjoy the magnificent views. The route was wonderful, it was not crowded by other boats and the transport in the van was very comfortable (fast WIFI acess, leg room, USB charger and free bottled water). Lunch was ok, not amazing but this was our first meal in Vietnam so we have nothing to compare it with. We were provided complementary local fresh fruit in the afternoon, which was a nice refreshment on board. The crew is lovely, I would definitely recommend it if you are short in time and want to enjoy the Bay.

September 11, 2018

Day Trip to Ha Long Bay from Hanoi
We did a day trip organised by Genesis tours to Ha Long Bay. My wife, son and me enjoyed the overall experience and we would definitely recommend this tour company for a day trip. Our guide Chong( pronounced as Kong) was very friendly and helpful. He also educated us about the Vietnamese culture and took good care of us. His English was good and it made it very easy for us to comunicate with him.

September 11, 2018

Good experience
Danny 이동수단과 먹을거리 모두모두 저의 기대이산이상이였고, 가이드 분도 정말 친절하셔서 이번에 여행을 하는데 정말 도움이 되었던것 같습니다.
다음에 여행 하실때 꼭 한번쯤은 사용한다면 좋을것 같습니다~~^^😚

September 11, 2018

Superb English speaking guide with a sense of humor!
Our guide Cong who’s a local native gave us a great insight to the beautiful Halong Bay. The tour was amazing, the bus that picked us up was seriously state of the art(never complimented a bus before til now). Bring your USB chargers because the bus is equipped with it along with WiFi free of charge.
Genesis tours really goes out of their way. This trip was the highlight our Vietnam visit and made Hanoi and Halong Bay honestly at the top two of a future repeatable visit. Thanks (King) Cong for taking care of us!

September 11, 2018

Great trip, well worth the cost
Went with a friend on. Halong Bay day trip, picked up at hotel on time, friendly, funny tour guide, who spoke excellent English.

The journey to Halong from Hanoi takes around 3 to 3.5 hours at present but should improve in the next 2 months with a freeway extension set to cut the journey time by 1 hour.

Service was excellent, a group of 13 of us was looked after and joined another group of 12 with another tour guide when we made the boat,. Lots of advice and they even looked after the tickets at each stage so we didn’t lose them.

The journey through Halong Bay included lunch a really good spread of nice Vietnamese food, with drinks offered at extra charge (but very reasonable)

The Bay is amazing and photo worthy, the trip heads to a cave system where you are guided through the largest cavern I. The bay with stories and interesting points by the guide, then to a sampan ride or kayaking in a lagoon. All in all a thoroughly great day that takes over 12 hours in total. Throw in a light buffet on the return journey and for price it’s excellent.

September 11, 2018

Halong Bay Tour – Excellent
My wife and I signed up for the Halong Bay day tour and it was awesome. The bus picked us up from our hotel in the morning and the tour guide(Roy) had a great personality and spoke English well.

Our tour guide, Roy was super knowledgeable with the history of Hanoi and Halong Bay. We got there in 3.5 hours, give or take and lunch was provided which was so good. Lunch was a 5 course meal of fish, octopus, and other various seafood. They offered water, soda and beer during our boat tour.

I would definitely recommend this tour company and would use them again for other tours.

September 11, 2018

Great tour!
We did the Halongbaybtour with Roy and his team. This was a great tour!
Everything was really good and very professional.
The schedule was perfect and we didn’t loose a minute. We had a lot of time to profit of the Halongbay and Roy was fabulous. His English was really good and he was funny and easy to deal with. A professional company that you can trust.

September 11, 2018

Excellent tour guide, food, scenery and transportation. Ha Long Bay
Excellent tour guide, food, scenery and transportation. Ha Long Bay.

Tour guide (Roy) was wonderful. He answered all our questions, gave a great presentation and had a great personality. He also went out of his way to take pictures for us and the other guests as well as answer some of our random questions about Vietnam in general.

The food was above our expectations. Each item served was excellent. The staff serving were friendly and met all our requests.

The Ha Long bay tour is a must do of places go. There are hundreds of island’s there and the boat takes through many of them. The cave tour and kayaking were great also.

The vans used to take us to Ha Long Bay from Hanoi were very luxurious and clean.

We will definitely use this company again in the future.
Thanks for the great memories!

September 11, 2018

Halong Bay Cruised in Style!
Thank you to Khanh Hoang (aka…Roy!) and the entire team at Genesis Tours. My wife and I had the most amazing experience cruising the Bay, dining on wonderful cuisine, and spotting golden monkeys in the trees with Roy! The cave hike was spiritual and truly an exotic experience. This is a team of professionals who know their business and clientele. I highly recommend the team at Genesis when traveling in and around Hanoi and Halong Bay! Thx Roy and Team Genesis.

September 11, 2018

Outstanding
Genesis tours was recommended by our hotel and we booked before travelling to Vietnam as we wanted to go to Halong Bay but only in one day. Comparing the Genesis tour itinerary to other companies, it was obvious that we would have more time in the bay and less time travelling on the road. From start to finish the service was gold standard thanks to ‘Mr Winner’ and the other guide and crew members. Transportation was comfortable and efficient and our boat was not overcrowded (maybe 24 people in total). The price includes lunch, but we didn’t expect all of the many courses we were given – fabulous food but far too much! The day was arranged well with some time to rest on the boat and a joy the stunning views but also time for visiting a beautiful cave and kayaking (or bamboo boating). Although it was a long day (approx 13hrs in total) it was well worth it and I would definitely recommend going with Genesis – they are a quality company and you can be assured of a great experience.

September 11, 2018

Great trip, highly recommended
Our trip to Halong Bay with Genisis was a great way to see this natural beauty of Vietnam. We were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi in a comfortable mini-bus and a very friendly tour guide – Roy – who made our day very interesting and engaging, telling us all about the local area and making sure we were comfortable and happy. The boat trip was great, with a lot of nice Vietnamese foods.

We would highly recommend this trip & when you do book, be sure to get Roy as your guide for the day! 5 Stars!

September 11, 2018

Amazing trip
We arranged our Ha Long Bay tour by recommendation of my parents who already used Wati Genesis tour in the past.
Excellent service for this trip.
Besides the fantastic scenery, another highlight of the trip was our Tour guide, Danny who is the most friendly and entertaining tour guide ever! Thank you so much for making our day this great! Can’t recommend him enough!

A great day trip to Ha Long Bay
My son and I had the pleasure of spending the day with Roy and Genesis travel for day trip to the beautiful Ha Long Bay. The trip was very well organised, from being picked up on time in the morning, to the boat trip to the amazing caves and the kayaking. Roy was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information. The bus and boat were good, good food and attentive staff on the boat made for a great day. I have no hesitation in recommending this trip and Roy.

September 25, 2018

Wife and I had an amazing trip
My wife and I just came from a trip with Genesis Tour to Ha Long Bay. Our tour guide Mr. Kong was very informative and took care of all of our needs. We were able to enjoy our time and learned a few new things about Vietnam’s culture.

We would recommend this trip to anyone that is interested in Ha Long Bay!

Thanks again to Mr. Kong aka King Kong! 🙂

Génesis tours is the only tour that uses the new highway to get to Halong Bay taking just 2 hours and not 4 like the rest. This gives us 5 hours of tour in the water and not 3 like the others.The bus and the boat that they use are just 1 year old which is the best you are going to see in the area.
The food was truly good and by the return ride we were all very cheerful and comfortable with the other patrons.

On our way there, one of the patrons suffered from food poisoning from the day before. This was complicated as the sick man was also diabetic. The manager handled it beautifully ensuring that the passenger got the medical assistance without stopping the plans for the rest. They arranged international hospital care while the rest of us enjoyed the day as usual. It was truly outstanding.I have used the services of companies like this in the past, but this was truly something special.

Highly recommended to avoid a long day in the road and more time enjoying the views of the bay.The same company has another tour of the country side that I was also recommended by other people. It is worthy to be checked.

Ha Long Bay – Genesis Tours Day Tour
Excellent from pick up to return. Coach extremely comfortable, spotless, wifi, bottled water and using the new freeway only 2hrs to destination and a very enjoyable 5 hrs on the bay.

Genesis team very professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Cong our tour guide lovely smile, caring, excellent English and a wonderful host.

The experience overall was a great day out with the lunch being tasty, fresh and nicely presented and plentiful. Drinks at lunch was the only added extra cost but very reasonably priced.

Couldn’t fault Genesis’s friendly team – thank you Cong and we wish you and Genesis all the very best in promoting your beautiful country.

A wonderful experience

vietnam wonderful
호텔통해 하롱베이 투어를 다녀왔는데 가격은 80불정도 이동하는데 시간이 좀걸리지만 버스도 좋았고 음식도 나쁘지않았다 무엇보다 하롱베이뷰는 최고
we booked halong bay trip through hotel for 3 people with 80$ the time pick up at hotel were on time. very far from hanoi to Halong bay but we went by express way (high way) so we only need 2 hours. the limousin bus was comfortable service on the boat expected. Danny our guide help is with information in Halong bay. very beautiful lanscape. thank to Genesis company

Fab one-day trip to Halong Bay!
We loved taking Genesis Tours and will take them again when we return to Hanoi. We took a one-day trip to Halong Bay and had a fabulous time. We had read prior reviews that said one day was not sufficient, but now with the NEW highway–it only takes 2 hours to get to Halong Bay from Hanoi! In fact, it took us less than 2 hours to get back to Hanoi from Halong at the end of the tour. The tour guide (Kong) was attentive, funny, and informative and we enjoyed the air-conditioned boat with yummy food and cold drinks.

AWESOME–deserves 10 stars
We decided on the $89 day trip to Halong bay which should not be missed if you go to the north. Now that the new highway is open, it’s about 2 hour drive from Hanoi. I can’t say enough good things about this tour. Our guide Kong was so much more than a guide–he not only went above and beyond what most tour guides share, but educated us about Vietnam’s history and it’s people. As an American, I have felt somewhat sheepish visiting northern Vietnam, and after hearing my concerns, Kong reached his hand out to me and said ‘no enemies, you are welcome in our country’. His genuine kindness and understanding went a long way to ease my fears.

Wifes choice but i ended up loving it
Picked up in luxury coach, on time and as we went via the new highway we saved lots of time. Stopped at the Pearl facility and had a look at what they do in the farms. At the bay the sights are very good and enjoyed the cruise around and a paddle through the caves, you can have someone take yoi so if you dont feel like paddling just relax and enjoy the view. The cave tour was magnificent, there is a bit of climbing involved but we are in our 70’s and managed ok as you have plenty of time. We had a nice lunch with plenty to eat on the boat. Its a full day, but comfortable in the coach and you can rest on the way back to your Hotel. Only problem we had was we were last to be picked up and just about last to be dropped off.

편안한 여행이었습니다.
장시간 이동이 있는 일정이라 이동버스를 최우선으로 고려했습니다.
편안한 버스가 너무 맘에 들었고, 식사나 전반적인 서비스도 좋았습니다.
특히 hero 가이드님 덕분에 편안한 여행이었습니다.
