(25 reviews)

We recommend! We were picked up on time at the hotel by bus and taken from there to the port, where we boarded the ship. When we arrived in Lan Ha Bay, we had the opportunity to jump into the sea, swim to a small island and explore it with our guide. Towels were provided. Kayaking (approx. 1.5 hours) was also fantastic. Lunch was authentic and delicious. We also moored on the monkey island for an hour before driving back to Cat Ba through the floating fishing village. A very nice, full-day tour with friendly staff through the picturesque bays around Cat Ba!

The day trip was excellent, nicely paced with three different stops through the different islands. Firstly stopping with an option to hike to top of hill (or half way) that only takes 10-20 minutes before a quick chill at the beach (or dip in sea!). Then moving on to either boat or kayak through to a cove. Finally last stop at a cave you walk through. Really good value for money, wonderful, funny and informative guide. A nice lunch with very attentive staff on board the boat.

Incredible day on this boat trip, the activities were very fun and varied, there was something for everyone, and we saw loads of the bay and surrounding area

The tour was excellently organized and the tour guide had everything under control and was very funny.

Sunny Is a great guide! Amazing tour and wonderful day! Recomended to everybody 💕
