Day 1 : HANOI – HALONG BAY – LAN HA BAY

8:00 – 8:30: Pick up & transfer to Halong BayThe first day of your cruise is an introduction to the amazing scenery of Halong Bay and its southern sister, Lan Ha Bay. Cruising through Halong Bay will literally take your breath away, as we pass famous spots like Thien Cung and Me Cung caves, plus Soi Sim and Titov islands. Also located in the Gulf of Tonkin, to the south of Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay, Ba Trai Dao and the Ho Ba Ham islets offer tranquility and nature at its best, and a guided kayaking tour or a refreshing swim in the Bay’s emerald waters are two of the best ways to enjoy them.

Meals: Lunch/Dinner
Accommodation: Au Co Cruise

Day 2 : CAT BA ISLAND – BAI TU LONG BAY

Cat Ba Island is famous for its national park, with more than half the island designated. This island, far and away the largest in the Gulf of Tonkin, is covered by a dense rainforest home to numerous indigenous species of flora and fauna. The secluded village of Viet Hai, situated in the middle of this pristine environment, is easily accessible thanks to a short walk or cycling trip and is where we are developing an organic farm which you can visit.Bai Tu Long Bay, located a little further east of Halong Bay, is the most remote area of your voyage. The exceptional scale and variety of the geological rock formations in this area are sure to make this a future destination for cruising in the Gulf of Tonkin. A relaxing rowing boat tour through the floating village of Vung Vieng and cruising into the geological park of this bay will definitely be delightful moments for you to remember.

Meals: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
Accommodation: Au Co Cruise

Day 3 : HALONG BAY – HANOI

Halong Bay, designated a UNESCO world heritage site for its limestone rock formations, is home to about 2,000 isles and islets of different shapes and sizes, creating a truly breathtaking seascape. At its heart is the highest concentration of limestone rocks in the area and caves and grottoes abound. One of the most beautiful is the Sung Sot (Surprise) Cave. Exceptional because of its size and the shapes which have been created by millions of years of erosion, the Surprise Cave is not to be missed.

Halong Bay - First Class all the way,friends of ours were upgraded to the AuCo cruise in April, shortly after it was launched. They raved about the whole experience and as a result we booked via our hotel. As we asked for the AuCo cruise we probably are the only people to have paid the going rate, as all the comments on Trip Advisor suggest that most people have been upgraded from Bhaya cruises. No matter, because the experience was well worth the cost. Everything was excellent, from the food, service, rooms through to the (optional but recommended) day excursions). Andrej, the Cruise Manager, has chosen and trained his staff well, and the AuCo kitchen produced consistently excellent food throughout the cruise. The food in Vietnam is generally very good, but on the cruise the bar was raised another notch or two! About the only thing I could complain about is the 4 hour trip from Hanoi at 50km per hour over very poor roads, but I don't think there is much AuCo can do about where Halong Bay is or the quality of Vietnamese roads!!! In our opinion, this cruise is the first thing everyone should slot into their Vietnamese trip. Allow for the 3 days in your schedule. A one day 4 hour drive each way and 4 hours on the bay trip does not do Halong Bay any justice and won't give you the extended feel for the place that it deserves, and the quality of the AuCo experience that you deserve!

The best cruise line in Halong, If you want a first class ship and cruise in Halong Bay, this is the line on which to travel. The Auco ships, there are two, are new within the last year. The ships are clean and seaworthy. The crew is beyond helpful and friendly. The food stands out as some of the best on our 2 week trip to VN. We had the opportunity to cycle on Cat Ba island and visit a floating village. You will not be disappointed to spend a couple of days kicking back and relaxing while seeing some of the most amazing islands formations in the world.

Unforgettably Wonderful, this trip was incredible! I have been to Halong Bay 3 times but somehow from the Au Co it seemed more amazing, more breath-taking and very very special. The quality of service and high standard of the rooms made me feel like royalty. The food was marvellous, the trips so well planned I really could relax (which is not easy for a mother of 4)! It was so wonderful It took me a couple of weeks to adjust to "normal" life afterwards! The children were very well looked after and there were even child-size life jackets! The cruise is more than worth the money. It is absolutely perfect for families or couples of all ages and stages. You can find cheaper but you will never find better!

Loved It,i would have no hesitation recommending the 3D2N trip on The Auco. My cabin was spacious and clean with a great bathroom and a balcony to catch the amazing views as we motored past. The food was beautiful and consisted of a number of courses for each meal which were varied and presented with great service. There was time to relax and watch the view from the top of the boat or the decks below and then there were activities such as an easy kayak to a beach for a swim, a tour of a floating fishing village, a cycle to a village on Cat Ba Island, a walk to a cave, tai chi on the top of the boat early etc. Although I was on my own, I had a lovely group of people to talk to and the staff made me feel welcome and could not have been more helpful. The only negatives were things beyond the control of the excellent Auco staff - a disappointing amount of rubbish in the water in some parts of the bays and the fact that there are too many boats and people touring around this beautiful place at once. We didn't see many boats until the last day around Surprise Cave where the crowds of boats and people made it difficult to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the location. For me it was a special experience.

First class experience running like clock work,ưe enjoyed every minute of our trip on Au Co. We were a little in the dark as to what to expect at the outset but once on board it all became clear. And that was - excellent accommodation, food, interesting excursions, attention to detail and information sharing. The staff were very professional and the whole trip ran like clock-work, without you feeling in any way pressured. We have to admit that we were upgraded. We highly recommend the 2 night/3day trip as you have the opportunity of cruising further in Ha Long Bay and seeing Cat Ba Island. The bike ride to the village was a highlight.

Excellent trip,we went for the 3 days 2 night Au Co cruise from Halong Bay and was more than happy with it. Service was amazing throughout the trip. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and bed was super comfortable! All rooms had a balcony which was nice for some private time. The food was delicious and beyond expectation! One big tip - do wake up early in the morning to watch the sunrise! We were sad to leave at the end of the stay. Thank you Auco for making the trip so memorable.
