Halong Bay Private Shore Excursion

  • ‘Meet & Greet’ & drop-off shipside* at one of these ports: Cai Lan or Hai Phong
  • Duration: Approximately 7 hours or longer depending on your time constraints. We always make sure that you return on-time to board the cruise ship.

Upon your arrival, our private guide with modern air-conditioned car/van will greet you at your port with a smile and welcome sign! After a transfer to Tuan Chau wharf, we’ll board the Private Junk through the heart of Halong Bay.

The lush emerald and turquoise waters harbour over 1,600 mostly uninhabited islands and islets according to UNESCO. Our route winds through stunning landscape and offers incredible views of thousands of limestone karts and the most beautiful islets such as Stone Dog, Fighting Cocks, and Incense Burner.

We will have the opportunity to explore Sung Sot Cave and to see the surprising interior! Sung Sot is the largest and most renowned of Halong’s many caves, the walls and innumerable cracks and crevices are evidence of millions of years of spectacular natural creation.

Moving onto another gem is a visit to Luon Cave, one of the most appealing nature sites in Halong Bay. You can have fun with water activities available on-site, whether it’s kayaking or a bamboo boat ride. Once you’re inside, get to be enchanted by a perfect combination of natural features including rocky cliffs, the mountain’s size and form, the colour of clouds and sea waters.

Next, we’ll cruise to Titop island for swimming, sunbathing, or a journey up to the top for a worthwhile view!

A delicious seafood lunch will await you upon your return!

Then we make our way back to Tuan Chau wharf for a private transfer to your cruise ship. We are expert time-keepers, so no need to worry about missing your departure – simply sit back and allow your guide to return you to port in plenty of time.
