    The tour went smoothly from the bus from Hanoi Hotel pickup until the end. The agency texted me by WhatsApp and communicated clearly about what to expect and do.

    The overview says the cruise is to Ha Long Bay, but the route depends on what cruise the agency is able to book. For my trip, we went on Renea Cruise to Bai Tu Long Bay. The cruise cabin was clean, beautiful and comfortable, and has windows for looking at the scenery. Take note, Ha Long Bay has a no-plastic water bottle policy to protect the environment, and cruise provides free drinking water.

    The cruise has amazing once-in-a-lifetime scenery. The tour guide, Duc, was excellent and communicated very well about the information on the Bay and our itinerary. Activities include kayaking and swimming in the Bay near some beaches, squid fishing at night, and cave exploration. The food was decently prepared too. Halong Bay was the highlight after the busy night in Hanoi.

    My wife and I took the 3-day 2-night cruise to Lan ha Bay which also includes halong Bay we had the premier double room a balcony Suite on the second floor the bed was very comfortable great shower and view,

    Although the balcony was very narrow comfortable enough to sit and have a quiet drink or read a book. The views in Atlanta with the karst we're extraordinary.

    The nights were quiet with lights of other cruise ships reflecting and the sunset from the top deck although cloudy was still quite nice.

    Bicycle tours kayaking and swimming all were grade activities I was able to dive from the top of the tender boat great fun for an old man. The bicycling trip into the UNESCO Village on Cat Ma zisland was interesting as well.. Annette Lee try the Cobra rice wine during that part of the tour.

    All in all the staff was very attentive and willing to please making the two night stay on the boat enjoyable and very comfortable the food was very good with good option choices for vegan and carnivore alike and although I seldom have three Square meals a day with these options I was stuffed continuously.

    This tour from start to finish was well worth the cost and good value thank you again to our host Sunny and the hard working crew of Ha long Bay Cruise Hunters

    This day trip was a great way to experience all of Ninh Binh. In particular the boat ride and the hike up the mountain had stunning scenery. Happy was an amazing tour guide who provided lots of interesting information and really made our day enjoyable!

    Myself and a friend thoroughly enjoyed our trekking trip despite far from ideal weather for the first day. Chanh was a great tour guide and made the trek enjoyable despite the cloud cover ruining the views on day 1. The homestay was also good fun where we got the chance to help with cooking and have a herbal foot bath. Overall a great trip. Only negative being the bed was very firm. The sleeper bus was also very comfortable and easy to sleep on.

    We had a great trip around Hanoi with Alex and Toan going to places a tourist would never see. We went to banana island, backstreet markets, train street and great food as well. Alex was a knowledgeable guide and couldnt do enough to make our tour memorable.i would recommend it to anyone wanting to see Hanoi off the beaten track.
    Its a lot safer than it looks once your in amongst it.

    The food tour was great! We had Alex as a guide and he was great. He brought us to all of his favorite local stops which were all equally delicious! Come hungry!

    I had a phenomenal trip organised by this team, everything was made so easy for me, everyone worked together to ensure I had a great experience.

    I was very lucky at the time to visit Sapa, I had perfect sunny weather and not many other tourists have returned since Vietnam recently opened the borders. This meant the hiking tracks and scenery were pristine with stunning views of the farmlands and villages. The team provided me a very comfortable return bus trip and an amazing hotel with views of the mountains across the valley.

    I was shown the hidden mountain tracks by a fantastic local guide named KIN, who knew the region inside and out, as we walked along a track he would find a sneaky path to take us to many beautiful trails and views. I really enjoy hiking and experiencing more difficult trails and Kin made the adventure very challenging and rewarding with the best untouched spots, but he is also able to accomodate if you would prefer easier main roads. Also he was like a gosh darn butterfly, I left the hikes each day with my shoes and legs slapped with mud and this man seemed to float across any obstacles like a ninja wearing dress pants! Would strongly recommend.

    My home stay was also wonderful, the family was very welcoming and understanding of my naivety. It is most important to be patient, respectful and kind while you are there. The bungalow I stayed in was very comfortable, I had a great bed with fly nets and my own bathroom. AC is there if you need it.

    My host was very friendly and we cooked a delicious local meal together with the family, if your are lucky and keen you may even get to be floored by the ‘happy water’.

    Now if you’re as lucky as me you may get a chance to experience some family celebrations, there happened to be a party organised by the family for their friends at lunch time on my last day, with a whole roast pig and other delicious local food, everyone was extremely welcoming and eager to share a drink together. At the end some of the attendees had prepared a dance and then everyone got a chance for a bit of a boogie when they had finished.

    There will be a few moments throughout the trip where you may not know what is happening or where you are meant to be, especially with various people picking you up and dropping you off places, but whenever this happened I just messaged the organiser Thomas and he would tell me exactly what I needed to know. Also, enjoy and embrace the chaos, it’s part of the adventure.

    All in all it was a trip I will always remember, very good value and will recommend my friends to do it if they ever want to visit Vietnam :) Enjoy!

    Highly recommend the tour to everyone who want to have a fulfilled trip at Ha Giang. I booked the 3 days Ha Giang loop tour randomly but it turned out to be one of the best trip ever.
    Mr Truong, the organizer, was very supportive in helping me with recommendations and transportation booking. My tour guide, Mr Thuc was the best one I had so far. Beside being very caring to every members of the trip, Thuc is really friendly and is willing to share every of his knowledge about the ethics traditional cultures and history, which makes the trip incredible. Mr Nghiep and Kien were also very caring as they have helped me with my hard time trekking down to Nho Que River. I really enjoy the time spent with them (Highly recommend to book them!)
    The food and homestays was great. The tour was private so it's comfortable to stop to take photos. The scene was extraordinary and tour guides were there taking nice pics for me. Though the weather was not that great to see all the nice views, but the trip was fulfilled and I will definitely book the tour again for my next trip to Ha Giang.

    Took my mum to visit the famous ha long Bay when she visited me in Vietnam.
    Great service and excellent communication with the trav consultant Kevin.
    Our guide Hà was excellent and spoke great English, was funny and had great info for us. The boat is small with max capacity about 20 pax.
    We had a small group of 10 all up and it was relaxing. The boat is not luxury but clean and comfortable. The crew were fantastic and there were enough activities.
    Lần ha bay was beautiful and not too many boats there.
    Definitely recommend.
