Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 2,058 reviews

We chose the three-day tour and would recommend it at any time. The all-round care was very good (very seafood-heavy, but if you are not a seafood fan, you can indicate this in advance and be offered an alternative). You have enough time for activities far away from everyday life. We did three kayak tours, two cave tours and a cooking class. In the evening you could try your hand at squid fishing. The guides and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Gladly again!

The two day cruise in Halong Bay was one of the best things we did in Vietnam. The boat was very nice. The cabins had dark wood and big windows. We also enjoyed the balcony where we took a lot of photos from. After our kajak tour we went in the hot tup and drank some happy hour drinks. The staff was very friendly without being too much.

A very fine trip and stay on an excellent boat. The room, the food, the service and the tours were all very good. The only complaint is that the tour-operator should inform about the expected pick up time and keep the timetable. We had to ask the tour operator about the expected pick up time but the bus showed up about one hour late.

Great way to see Halong Bay in one day! Bus journey is obviously quite long but if you need to squeeze it into 1 day it isn’t much to sacrifice. Benjamin was a great guide, so helpful and spoke amazing English!

The Tourguide, Tony, was Very kind and helpsome! The staff Speaks english Very well and Are Very serviceminded. The food was above all expectations! Very delicious!
