Lovely people well organised great places to stop off chosen

Picked up on time by driver in comfortable air conditioned car. Same driver was there to take us home as boat docked. 2 1/2 hours little quicker coming back. Much better than the 4 hours other companies were taking. Boat was lovely good buffet lunch on arrival . Spacious comfortable roof top seating to enjoy the views whilst soaking in the sun. A must do extra is the option to kayak in a cove . Was lots of fun cost very little. Stopped to swim at a beach and look around a vast cave was interesting and enjoyable. Afternoon tea served on way back. The crew were really helpful and our guide talked us through the sights on the tour. The prices on board the boat were not inflated just a little more than you would pay in Hanoi. Halong bay its self was beautiful. A must see

Absolutely amazing! The kayaking is an absolute must do! (Just note that there isn't a cabin included- even though it is advertised as included). But everything else is wonderful and helpful staff.
