A wonderful trip and an absolute must when visiting Vietnam. The rooms in the boat were spacious and luxurious compared to hostels! Friendly and helpful staff and plenty of food. Great activities aided in the enjoyment and appreciation of the beautiful landscapes. Highly highly recommend this trip, this is the best thing we have done in a long time!

The tour was excellent. The food was excellent. They also showed us the Pearl farm which was not mentioned in the itinerary. The room is neat and clean. The guide was good. The only negative that I can think of is the planning for viewing the sunrise. By the time they moved the boat from where we could see the sun the sun was already above the horizon. Basically we missed the sunrise in spite of waking up early and waiting on top. Thank Ding Dong our guide..

Nice tour

The rooms on the ship were clean, just a little small. The boat is also one of the small boats, making the round of potential guests more comfortable. The other ships sometimes had twice as many guests. It was just a bit stupid that part of the floor was wet the next morning. Probably from the air conditioning. The program is the same for all boats. You can really save the cave, it is small and there were too many people for it even in the off-season. I don't want to know what it looks like in high season. It is better to go directly to the beach there, but of course it is full, or just stay on the boat and enjoy the view on the sun deck. Kayaking is fun. The drive through the fishing village is also nice. The crew and guide were always nice and helpful.
