A MUST DO!

I could not believe the luxury and beauty of the ship. Although Ha Long and Bai Tu Bays are far from Hanoi, it's worth the ride. Was a DREAM.

COCO was the best! And so was Mike our server <3

Great boat, beautiful scenery
Jan 2020
We got upgraded to the Dragon Legend Boat a few days before our trip to Bai Tu Long. Our cabin was excellent - very large and comfortable bed. Large bathroom including a corner tub.

All the staff were friendly, helpful, and smiley. The food was fantastic, as fish eating vegetarians the staff tailored the set menus so we got all the best options. Lots of variety, and tasty too. The wine was a little pricey but that's to be expected for Vietnam.

Trying Tai Chi was fun, and the cave stop was a nice addition.

On the downside (and not necessarily 100% the fault of the Indochina Junk Co) - the check in process the the ferry building is a nightmare. Crazy busy, chaotic and not overly organised. It could certainly be improved.

We didn't really enjoy the sculpture/art selling stop en route either. Too long, and nowhere warm to enjoy a decent hot drink. The water puppet show was OK, but we had to wait nearly an hour for everyone to arrive before it got started. Not ideal.

This is the cruise you want to take!
Feb 2020
We are so grateful we stumbled upon a recommendation for this tour in our Vietnam guidebook! We were skeptical about Halong Bay because kept hearing that it was overcrowded with other boats. This tour is great because it takes you to the less-visited (but just as beautiful!) Bai Tu Long Bay. Every aspect of the tour was well organized and tastefully done. The rooms are spacious, clean and well-decorated. The food was delicious and never stopped coming. We were able to take advantage of the kayaking trip and were happy to learn about the emphasis Indochina Junk Tours places on keeping the Bay clean.

We must give a shoutout to our wonderful tour guide, JD, and Cruise Director, 'Milkyman!' They were friendly, informative, and welcoming the entire trip.

We cannot recomend this tour enough!

Perfect cruise in Bai Tu Long Bay
We searched the internet for the best 2D1N cruise in Halong Bay. We chose this company for several reasons and were not disappointed. Arranging the trip from the US, as well as check in at the port were well organized and effortless. We liked that this line spends the time in the less crowded bay of Bai Tu Long. It was cleaner water and there were very few boats from other companies!! When we kayaked it was with only fellow passengers of our boat. The Dragon Legend 2 was luxurious yet cozy. Our cabin was huge and packed with luxury , the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was amazing. We didn’t use the jacuzzi tub over looking the bay but it looked amazing. We did enjoy the hot tub up on deck and the meals were amazing as was the staff. Speaking of the staff they were friendly, accommodating and attentive!
Fishing off the back of the junk at night was really fun, and the food sculptures and other entertainment were quite enjoyable. We even had magic tricks performed at our table!! This was a magical trip.

Incredible Beginning to the New Year
Jan 2020
We spent New Year's Eve on the Dragon Legend and it was magical. Traveling through Ha Long Bay is an experience that should not be missed, and we feel lucky we got to do it on the Dragon Legend. The boat was incredible--with luxurious and immaculate rooms, delicious meals, and an attentive, professional, and kind staff and crew. We were in especially amazing hands with Milky Man the whole time. Kayaking and hiking with JD - who not only shared interesting information but also memorized every passenger's name! - was a blast, not to mention beautiful. We were treated to magic, music, and a New Year's Eve celebration that will be hard to top! I cannot not recommend this experience enough!

Staff and the view
Our overall experience was amazing, the view, the food, and the services. We can see that the staff tried so hard to give us a trip to remember. Of course they have their own limitations, but i think a proper hospitality training would do. Another tips : please check the linen cleanliness.

Highlight of our trip
We did this cruise on a whim, based on a travel book on Vietnam. We were on the boat on 2/24-2/25/2020. We were not disappointed! This was the highlight of 15 day trip. We were on the Dragon Legend 2 ship with Mr. Smiley (mr. Nguyen travel guide ) and Mr. Milkyman (boat manager) and they were the most professional and lovely crew to have. Everyone on the ships staff was kind, accommodating and willing to help me with whatever I wanted. The rooms were amazing and my boyfriend and I loved the room and bathroom we had. They were gigantic sized rooms and the AC worked lovely. The staff went to great lengths to clean and sanitize everything due to the Corona Virus and we did not feel unsafe at any time. This is an eco-friendly cruise so there is no single use plastic on-board but they give you glass water bottles (which you keep) and refill from a water tank whenever you want. I think the highlight of our two day trip was the incredible food (the chef is incredible!) and the kayaking and swimming in the bay. They actually want you to help pick up any plastic or garbage if you see any while you kayak, and for me, I loved that part. Some people on the kayak trip didn’t do so, as it isn’t mandatory, but any small help counts. The views were breathtaking and the stars a night were extremely romantic. I would urge you to book with this company as they are both community focused and ecological responsible but you still get an amazing luxury experience. Thank you to the amazing staff!

Trip of a lifetime in Ha Long Bay
Feb 2020
I visited Ha Long Bay with my husband in February 2020. We were on the 2-day cruise, and were taken care of by JD and Milky Man.

We were picked up in Hanoi promptly in a luxury van and taken to the port. They were efficient in organizing the different tour groups and we boarded the ship where we got a quick rundown of the schedule for our trip. There were about 30 of us onboard for our tour and plenty of room for us to roam the ship.

We ate like royalty on the ship -- TONS of fresh amazing food at each meal, a nice minibar in each room, and great cocktails offered throughout too.

The ship itself is impeccably maintained - with several decks for viewing Ha Long Bay, and our room was gigantic (for ship standards).

JD and Milky Man provided humor and warmth throughout the trip. They thoughtfully answered any question or concern we had, and also provided entertainment throughout the trip (music & magic :) )...

My only wish was more time onboard, since we had such a wonderful time.

Look no further
Feb 2020
Choosing a Ha Long cruise can be incredibly overwhelming. If I can be so bold, look no further than Indochina Junks. We took a two-day, one night cruise on Dragon Legend 2 and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I cannot even think of a single negative.

The company makes coordination easy. I happen to live in Vietnam but cruised with my parents who booked the cruise from the United States. The company works on US-time zone too. The check-in process was easy. The boat was BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, the staterooms were the nicest I've EVER experienced on any cruise I've ever taken. And, the bathrooms were especially remarkable. We couldn't get over how delicious the food was - how great the service was - and how spectacular the scenery was.

Another KEY reason to pick this cruise is that it doesn't actually focus on Ha Long bay...which you'll hear is very overcrowded. This cruise goes to Bai Tu Long bay which is just as beautiful but far less crowded.

OK yes, the wifi was not strong but there was connectivity for most of the cruise but it was also kind of nice to have some detachment from the rest of the world for one night.

Pick this cruise! Oh, and if you're looking at booking now (February/March 2020), this company takes great care to protect it's passengers and crew from corona. We felt very safe.
