Ivan (Thang) was an excellent tour guide; friendly, knowledgeable, professional and with a good sense of humour. The rest of the staff was amazing too. The tour was smooth overall and we visited truly beautiful places. The food was alright and the length of the trip reasonable as well. Would recommend.

Amazing tour ! We choose this tour based on the planned activities and the reviews and we were'nt disappointed. The crew was very nice and so were our guides, they cattered to all our needs and were very friendly. The tour itself was exactly as advertised, and the activities and viewpoints were perfect. Thanks for the good memories !

Great experience. Good boat, nice guides and service! The most amazing thing was the cave, it was just wow! Happy that we chose this one day trip instead of two days cruise, because Halong Bay is very touristic and spending two days in such an atmosphere for us it would be too much! :)
