6 reasons why you should take Genesis Cruise

Our cruise team has 03 vessels by new iron boat with air-conditioner, and traditional in boutique decorating of interior. They will be more safety than the classic wooden cruise. The engine is stronger for a long route discover and comfort.
We almost use the traditional material such as silks, ceramic…to use on board, that bring a cozy ambience and cultural feel for traveler when they stay on board.
All facilities are very clean. on the sundeck, it has a roof, that could help to avoid the rain or too hot weather, where crew organize the sunset party for every trip.
Both of restaurant and sundeck also equipped the music speaker system for theme music of time, to be more enjoyment for tourist when they stay on board. For lunch time, the instrument music will be played, and for sunset gathering, it would be party music.

When you join a day tour, the transfer type and standard of road from Hanoi to Halong bay is a big matter since a long time ago. Almost company still use the old road for tourist, 170km to go, and go with long vehicles on road. The quality of road is bad and pampy.
If you join the day tour Halong with classic route 1 (destinations that are near pier), visit Thien Cung cave as almost other cruise operators, so you will get more than 3 hours on board only, but the time for staying on bus is 4hours each way and 8 hours total. So we think this is a ”bus tour” not a boat tour and surely tourist will be very tired after one day trip. Leave hotel 7.30 AM in the morning, but reach back about 9.00PM and just visit route 1 for 3.5 hours on the bay only. We do not understand why other tours organizer still be conservative to remain the old road. Just pay a little more for toll fee to go by highway as what Genesis gonna do.
To solve that matter, Genesis gives out a solution with 02 points:
– Using hi-class modern minivan that are modified to be very luxury and comfortable.
– Go by Hanoi – Hai phong express way, it brings the most comfortable and save trip to tourist. From Hanoi to Halong bay, there are 02 highway system: one is Hanoi-Hai phong then connect to highway Hai phong – Halong. The highway Hai phong to Halong will be done in this August 2018, then the time to go from Hanoi to Halong bay just in 02 hours, then the day tour is become trendy and good option for tourist.
Since August 2017, Genesis already use Hanoi-Hai phong highway to serve our clients, a little more for tour price but get more comfort, safety and time to enjoy the bay.

Audio guide is one of hearty project for our clients, with hope that could help all travelers get the full experience for your trip with us from information providing.
Currently in Vietnam, the application of AG in the tourism industry has not been developing. At present, there is only one museum in Hanoi using this system. That’s the AG system in a place.
We are the first company research and develop this application.
To see how this system combining with smartphone, please read the detail in this article….

As one reason why Genesis Luxury Day tour was created, because it is experience for tourist when they come to Halong bay.
For last 15 years, it has been defaulted that, day cruise will take Thien cung cave (route 1, 3 minutes from pier)  and overnight cruise will take Sung sot cave (route 2, almost 2 hours from pier). Because of the distance from Hanoi to Halong for 170km and take 3.5 hours to go. So it is not enough time to go for route 2. Then Genesis day tour come out to change that rut thinking. By using limousine van, highway, new iron boat… all for fully experience.
We want the tourist, who do not want or do not have much time to stay overnight, still have the best experience to Halong bay with taking the most highlights of the bay.
Currently, Halong bay – Bai tu long bay have 05 routes, but basically is route 1 and route 2.
To see the different of route 1 and 2, the price for ticket…and comparing the itinerary of Genesis with other tour operator, please read this article…

One the bus, the group is maximum 14 persons only.
The standard of day boat size is maximum 48 persons on board. And other cruise tour will take up to around 35 persons per trip.
But with Genesis, we just content 24 persons one boat, 4 persons one table to ensure that tourist will have their own space to enjoy the bay trip.
With 24 persons, you will be taken care by 02 tour guides, speaking English, go on 02 bus. That could help the tourist will get the best personal care, get full interesting information or story about the destination while sightseeing.

As you know, this is hospitality and service industry, the the product is invisible. It is created from many parts, and almost by human. And also it is impacted by objective reasons like weather, regulation, traffic…
We always commit to bring the value products that are equal to what client pay for, but no body could ensure all tours are perfect every days.
But we have strong policy for after-sales care. If tourist not happy to any part of the tour like we do not provide what we listed, mentioned, committed…After the trip, we will listen to you and would like to respond for all of it. We will apply for flexible refund policy as one of our apology.

All in all just for your most complete journey with Genesis.
