My cousin and I booked a three day and two night cruise after seeing it in Lonely Planet. We both had an amazing time in the cruise. The food was amazing and there were plenty of activities, we loved kayaking and cycling. It was a great atmosphere and we felt that we thoroughly saw the bay. We were also taken to more quiet spots with less boats and were taken to the caves early to beat the crowds. Dem was an outstanding guide. He was super friendly, knowledgeable and funny and we couldn't have asked for a better guide! I learnt a lot about the bay and also Vietnamese culture and daily life from him that I would not have got from a museum or book. If you have Dem as your guide, you are very lucky. You will have a great time and will be well taken care of!

We had an amazing time on our cruise with Vega over the December break. Our guide Duy was awesome and was incredibly attentive, answered all our questions and took us to great spots. The itinerary for the 3 days is busy but is very well organised and orchestrated. We did a night stay on the boat and a night stay on Cat Ba Island and thought it was a great balance of experience. The food on the boat was good (just be sure to be clearly communicate any dietary restrictions if you have them). Overall, the experience was exceptional and we met amazing people along the way too. We would highly recommend it!!

I spent hours online trying to figure out which travel company to go with for an overnight in Ha Long Bay. For some reason, my gut told me to go with Vega Travel. It was moderately priced and seemed to offer more active options like kayaking. This past December (2019), we were SO happy to find ourselves aboard. The organization is extremely professional and well run in all aspects. From the emails exchanged far in advance to how we were first greeted when we arrived at their offices, I knew we were in good hands. My feelings were reinforced by the quality of the staff, the lovely character of our boat, the amazingly delicious food that was served. But most importantly, the mix of individuals on our tour was just fantastic. We made new friends all over the world (from Australia to the Basque Country of Spain, from London to New York). We really loved being together and finding out about each other. I don't think that the boat could hold more than 20 guests which makes it ideal to get to know each other. This wonderful mix of people then got to drink and eat fabulously together. We had the chance to kayak and swim. We were anchored almost alone in this beautiful setting overnight. I especially liked viewing the dawn as it came up. So settling. I can't recommend this more highly!

We had a great time on the two day one night Halong bay tour. Dem our tour guide was awesome , very helpful, informative and friendly :we learned a lot about Vietnamese culture. The bay was beautiful and we really enjoyed the activities included. It was great that Vega took us away from other more tourist spots so it was quiet. We liked the boat on the whole although paid for deluxe room and felt it wasn't worth the extra overall as the other rooms were nice and ours had an adjoining glass panel door to the room next door who we didn't know, so a little askward- a solid door would be better to minimise noise and ability to see light on etc. Overall recommend Vega and the tour.

We can definitely recommend booking a Ha Long Bay tour with Vega Travel! We were picked up at our hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter and then drove to Ha Long Town. From there, we spent two days and one night on the ship and one night in a Hotel in Cat Ba Island. The Tour was perfectly organized and our tourguide Duy was a very fun and guide who enjoyed the trip as much as our group! The activities were super well planned and a lot of fun, and definitely made for a very special experience. The Food on the boat was great too!
