We have had the best three days! Bungalow location is fabulous, comfortable and all relevant amenities for a comfortable stay. Our personal guide ( Toni) we had for all activies over the three days and he made sure we had the best experience. The food provided throughout the trip was extremely good and plenty of it! The coordination for the whole trip was great and we were picked up and returned to our hotel in Hanoi, which was certainly one less thing to think about. Do this experience with this company, it really is excellent!

We went on the full day kayak tour (November 2019) and it was absolutely fantastic. The tour took us away from the main tourist trail and we had the opportunity to enjoy caves, beaches, tunnels and fish farms all to ourselves. Tony was the perfect guide and knew all the best spots in Cat Ba away from the hustle and bustle. We were given a generous, leisurely lunch in a great location... and there's even a chance to have a glass of wine if you wish. Highly recommended, you wont be disappointed.
This was the only thing we booked in advance on our trip to Vietnam and it was more than worth it!
We took a 4 days and 3 nights booking,
They made sure we got picked up in Hanoi with the bus, then they booked us the connection by boot,
Everything went really smooth!
We slept 2 nights in on a island and 1 on a boat.
We did a lot of kayaking, biking and trekking, an amazing expirence!
Thanks a lot to the team!!
I recommand this to everyone who would come to vietnam!
We did a three day two day kayak trip with Cat Ba Kayaking Adventures and had an absolute ball. This was made by the excellence of our guide Truong and the smooth organisation from the whole team. It made bus trips, boat connections and all transfers easy and comfortable.
We loved exploring the caves and discovering hidden lagoons which were clean and quiet away from the other tourists and boats. We must admit we were a little disappointed with the amount of rubbish in the water and also around the resort. Effort needs to be made to tidy up some of these beaches so they can be more enjoyed and not spoilt for the future. We understand that much of the rubbish comes from the fishing industry and villages, but hopefully education and new technology can improve things for everyone to still enjoy in the future.
We stayed our first night in a bungalow but if we had known how much fun the junk boat was going to be, we would have chosen two nights on the junk boat. Such nice big rooms, such fantastic fun crew and so fun to swim off the deck of the boat. The food was tasty and fresh and the facilities were clean and comfortable. A real highlight.
Overall we would greatly recommend this tour for its excellent guides, scenery, its challenge and well organised adventure.
Unlike other tour operators, Cat Na Kayak Adventures use real sea kayaks in perfect shape. The selection of sites is thoughtful and the organisation is smooth. Our only reservation was that there was top much delicious food.
