Our guide was really nice, funny and her English was good, But it rained which affected a lot of the events, the prices on drinks was too high and it was not possible to pay by card, and the food was a low quality, we have had a lot better street food. Also forced socialising, as they only have big tables of 6 people Also the bus was old and shitty and most rooms and the boat was drenched due to the rain

Super nice boat tour in a small group

We had a wonderful stay on the ship. Super delicious food (and very plentiful), very friendly ship staff, great trips (canoeing and visiting the island) and of course this dream of landscape. The transfer from the hotel to the ship and back went very well. Our tour guide accompanied us very nicely and informatively. A successful trip

Very good

We really enjoyed the tour. We had perfect weather and were in a small group. Therefore, we were always the first to go to the places before it got really full. The "cooking class" was also good. However, it is not Bai tu Long but Halong, so very touristy. Our bathroom was leaking.
