Such an amazing experience, we were on Le Theatre cruise - the boat was super fancy with great service. Be sure to request a room away from the engine as it is noisy. The boat was pictured to have a pool but is actually only for show and is about 50cm deep. Good food and lots of it. Amazing to see all the sites lead by experienced tour guides. You definitely need to do the 2 nights 3 days to have the shrike experience as you do most on the second day, otherwise you get there kayak, eat, sleep wake up and go. So happy to see Vietnam open back up again post covid, it was so surreal to share the culture and would recommend this cruise.

Nice tour, and great service from the Cruse staff and also the booking assistant from Get Your Guide, Hanna has incredible timing contacting me at the key moments of the travel, asking me how is everything going, taking care about every detail (pick up time, drop off time, driver plates, etc etc). My vacations with my family were just amazing and all this coordination helped a lot. Don’t forget get Dongs, that was my mistake, if you miss this they do accept US dollar SOMETIMES, and if they take it, they will do at a very high exchange rate.

We also enjoyed trip to the village on the bikes and kayak trips. Especially guide Lucky was great. I would like to recommend this boat if you want to enjoy great view, food and trips. :-)
