  • Beautiful location, excellent crew, very nice comfortable accomodations for a small ship. There are only up to 25 passengers on this type of boat. Tour guide and some staff spoke English. The food was great fresh seafood every day, multiple courses for lunch and dinner, Asian style. Cooking class was fun. I really enjoyed the extra day, as many people only book a 2 day trip and I did 3 days. The extra day allows more relaxation and seeing more of the Bay. Unfortunately the Vietnamese Government banned kayaking as of April 1st 2017 and I had really wanted to do more of that. Also the Government is going to phase out all overnight cruises by 2020 so go soon if you want the overnight experience. It is worth it.

  • We had no idea what to expect when we chose this tour. We were very happy and pleased with the result. From the prompt service at pick-up from the hotel, to the cruise itself, the staff, the service, and finally the return to the hotel, all went great. Thank you for a great time on Halong Bay.

  • The cruise overall was grearlt. Super nice staff and good food. It would be nice if the lounge chairs upstairs had cushions.

    The only thing i really was disappointed in waa that water wasnt included. Its fine to have to pay for all other drinks but water should really be free and included with meal

  • A pretty good trip, not all the things promised were achieved, for example, kayaking at Dark and Light Cave. But on the other hand, we got to see a cultural pearl site, very interesting.

  • Great tour with lovely people and of course beautiful scenery! Would definitely recommend 2 nights though as the second day was our favourite and I think we would have been disappointed with the 1 night one as too much time spent travelling.
