Beautiful Views, Modern Facilities & Superb Service

We booked a two day cruise while staying in Hanoi, and would highly recommend it. Our room on the ship was fantastic - modern, spacious, with a balcony which was a great spot to sit and admire the view. Meals were delicious & very generous (5 courses!). We really enjoyed the tours (kayaking, and to the Hospital Cave on Cat Ba) with our knowledgeable guide. The whole staff team were consummate professionals & also great company (the cooking competition with the Chef - who also happens to be a very good comedian - had me crying with laughter). We'd recommend taking part in as many of the activities as you can - squid fishing on the first evening was great, and a good chance to chat with one of the team.

Perfect way to get a good taste of Ha Long Bay.

The boat was a nice size with not too many passengers so you got to make friends quickly. Tour guide Mr Tun was excellent with good English and very knowledgeable. Easy pick up from Hanoi hotel. Crew on the boat were all very friendly and helpful and the chef was brilliant serving up a wide variety of delicious dishes all beautifully presented in Vietnamese style. Kayaking was good fun and visits to the Amazing Cave and viewpoint were interesting. Highlight was spotting wild monkeys and Lemurs on an island while kayaking. Thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone and two nights is definitely the better option!

Superb scenery, fun activities, wonderful guide, and delicious food!

Ours was the 2-day, 1-night option and we regret we didn't have the opportunity to do the extra day. The cruise went along at an unhurried pace allowing us to enjoy the superb views of the limestone karsts. The tour of "Surprise cave" was also a splendid visit. We enjoyed boating, swimming., and a couple of cooking demonstrations, which added to the experience. The guide was wonderful, providing commentary and answering our questions with her in-depth knowledge and a lovely sense of humour. The crew were very accommodating, attending to all our needs. Overall, a highlight of our stay in Vietnam.

Excellent cruise at a very competitive price.

This cruise was one of the highlights of my 2 week trip to Vietnam. Visiting some of the cities in Vietnam can be a very intense experience with the high volume of traffic and large crowds and this trip was the perfect antidote to all the hustle and bustle of city life. The peace and serenity of sailing through Halong Bay taking in the sights is impossible to capture on paper or even by photographs. It's just something you have to experience yourself in order to fully appreciate it. Go for it!

Good organised tour with very good accommodation and food.

Good organised tour with very good accommodation and food. However halong bay was too crowded for us and it seems that non of the approximatly 200 boats do realy care about the nature (very dirty and generator noise all over the night). Although the staff on our boat was helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the kajaking tours.
