Delivered just as promised. Victor, the tour guide, was superb and contributed to our having a great time. Only glitch related to our not knowing we needed to bring our passports but that got ironed out with transmitted photos.

Loved this tour. Our tour guide Victor was on the ball and very funny.

Our boat manager was very kind and proactive. Lovely deluxe room with balcony, boat was beautiful, kayaking and tai chi were great fun. The itinerary had the perfect amount of things to do, with a good amount of downtime.

Would be great to have had all local Vietnamese meals on board, as that's what we're there to experience : felt the food was a little too western.

Sadly the weather kept us from staying overnight, but the company tried their best to accommodate. There was some confusion as we wanted to stay the night in halong bay city, but hotel was booked for us in the middle of nowhere and we weren’t able to cancel. We were refunded for part of trip!

Just wow! Totally worth every penny!! The rooms are fantastic (and actually pretty big!). The staff goes way above and beyond. And, of course, Halong Bay is spectacular.

2 days really is all you need. The food was delicious and the tour was perfect. Perfect balance between relaxing and exploring. Don and #39;t forget to have a nice hot cup of Vietnamese coffee to go with the view.

This boat trip was really lovely. Both the hospitality and itinerary were on point. It was perfect for the amount of time in the area. The staff was very nice, and the food was tasty. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the boat/rooms could use a bit of a facelift. It was older and more worn out then I expected. However, all the boats in the area sort of have the same vibe so I don't think you can find a better one. Fair warning- it has a cute but cheesy romantic theme on the boat so if you are looking for a party boat, check out their other boats instead.

Had an overnight cruise staying on the Oasis Bay which was a lovely ship, older but nicely maintained. The spa at the bow of the ship was a nice, relaxing touch. The crew were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. There was a slight problem with our cabin booking but they were reasonably quick to sort it out and ensure we were happy. For the money you pay which is not really that much, it is worth upgrading to a balcony cabin. We went Kayaking on the first afternoon which was amazing and true to a previous review I had read about this trip, went the opposite way to which most of the boats go so we had the area all to ourselves. There was only a total of 19 people on the boat which I thought was better than being on one of the bigger ships. On the 2nd morning, went to Hang Sung Sot cave system. Very crowded in the first 2 chambers but the 3rd chamber is so massive that the crowd thins out and it becomes more enjoyable. The caves themselves are spectacular. Our tour guide, Quy Cookie Monster was fabulous. Her English was the best we came across in Vietnam. Her concern for the groups' safety and enjoyment during activities was apparent and her knowledge of the area was excellent. What impressed me the most was her obvious passion for the beauty and preservation of the bay. The only 2 things I can say as a con is: Overnight cruise is not long enough as the 2nd day is really only a half day so the trip seemed too short. 2 nights would be way better. We were so used to eating awesome street food in Hanoi so the meals just seemed a bit sub-par and bland.

Our guide, Ricky, was superb. He was thoughtful, conscientious, and made sure we didn't get lost.
We were pleased to have travelers in a similar age group rather than rowdy,smoking, beer drinking group. As it turned out, 12 of the 14 passengers spoke no English. Ricky spoke no Chinese. With humor and professionalism he smiled, made an effort to learn a few key phrases. Fortunately, my husband served happily as the translator. The food was good though a bit too much fried food. The beds were comfortable. Drainage in the bathroom could have been better. All in all we loved our time but feel it really isn't 2 days on Halong Bay. It's more like 24 hours if you don't count the bus trip and tourist stops. I felt the cost was high.
