we booked a 3 day Sapa tour directly followed by a 2 day Halong Bay tour via Vega.
Great guides, good value for both the Sapa and the Halong Bay trip.
We are a family with 3 kids from 10 to 16 years old and all are very enthusiastic about the great experience.
We especially like the homestay location in Sapa, which was not located on the place where most of the travel agencies used to host the guests, but located along the river, with a lot of rice wine offered by the homestay owner during the nice diner.
For SAPA we also had the best guide ever (Cuong). He was really funny, social, good with kids, lots of knowledge, great language skills etc.

Again, great value!

We visited several travel agencies in HaNoi but we choose Vega because of the mention on Lonely Planet guide. We opted for the 2 days/1 night tour in Halong bay.
All in all it was a good tour and we enjoyed the breathtaking sightseeing, however I believe the tour it is still a bit too much touristic and the food served onboard was really average.
Plus: the price is good (110$) and group size is relatively small (max 16 guests).
Minus: despite they promise you to avoid the most crowded itineraries, at the end you do almost exactly the same tour of the other boats...

Nervous after reading all the horror stories of tours round Halong Bay, I opted for Vegas Travel's 2 day / 1 night trip. It was everything that I had hoped it would be. Vegas Travel seem to be different from all the other tour companies traipsing round Halong Bay. You really are made to feel that you are with the good guys. Our guide, Tiger, spoke completely fluent English and seemed intent on giving us a truly memorable trip. Each attraction we got to was either after all the crowds - or before.. Perfectly timed, every time. The most amazing memory of our 3 weeks in Vietnam was kayaking into a deserted lagoon and watching the wild monkeys swinging around in the trees all around us... The boat was the prettiest we saw with immaculately clean cabins and the food was some of the best food we ate in Vietnam ( and that's in a country where everything is utterly delicious). Halong Bay really is the not to be missed site in Vietnam and Vegas Travel succeeded in making it quite perfect. My advice - don't go with anyone else!

If you want to do a varried trip around Halong Bay I would really reccommend Vega Travel.
The transfer bus was clean and air conditioned. The junk boat had all the facilities required and was very clean. The food on board was amazing. A great selection of freshly prepared vietamise dishes.
We did a good selection of activities on the tour and even had some time around the quieter side of Halong Bay which was extremely relaxing and a great way to end the tour.
Our tour guide Danny was also great, very knowlegable and organised.
Great trip, would highly recommend to anyone.

If you are looking for a safe and well organized trip to the Halong Bay, VegaTravel is an excellent operator to put your trust in. Our guide was well informed and enthusiastic — if not funny —, and at every stop in the bay (to see the caves and a mountain, for kayaking), he tried hard to go around the massive groups of tourists — what was, in my case, highly appreciated. The boat was not crowded, the food was excellent and the rooms, even though you get what you pay for, were clean and comfortable. I did the two days trip, which did not include the trek on the Cat Ba island, but I was told it was a great way to end the traditional tour in the bay. If you were nervous about booking a trip after reading bad reviews or other stories of the same kind, don't hesitate: this one is trustworthy even if it's quite cheap.
