We decided to stay on Cat Ba instead of spending 100s$$$ on a Halong Bay cruise. We are really glad we decided to see the national park in this way. Cat Ba is really relaxed with a lot of cheap and comfortable accommodation options. The day tour with Ca Ba Vision was a highlight. The full day was very relaxing, we saw less touristy places, most of the time we were the only boat in the region, and the kayaking through caves was great. Our guide Sun was very enthusiastic, funny and informative, making you feel very welcome. The lunch was also really good. For $50 for 2 people, we don't only feel like we have saved money compared to other tourist options in this area, we were also privlaged to have a unique experience. Thank you for a great day :)

I can absolutely recommend Catba Vision because of their attitude and 5-star service! We spent a wonderful day on a good boat with sincere-smiling&laughing guide Sun (sorry if the spelling is incorrect). The food was varied, towels and water were provided, activities are great (thank you for the kayaking experience). We really liked Catba Vision's 1-day-tour to Halong Bay!

Kun was our tour guide, he was really friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable with the tour, he also explained many things about Ha Long bay and Lan Ha Bay. The weather was perfect during our visit so we were able to sunbath on the top deck of the cruise. The route they took was definitely less crowded so it was really relaxing and quiet. They also provided a generous amount of food for us during lunch. After lunch, we all went kayaking for an hour plus then went to visit a small fishing village before heading back to Cat Ba.

Full day Ha Long/ Lan Ha bay tour including kayaking, snorkelling and lunch. Picked up from our hotel. Great lunch provided (lots of food, really tasty, includes vegetarian). Our guide was fab - really knowledgeable on the area and Vietnamese history and culture, really engaging and sociable. Mostly felt like we were the only tour boat which was lovely in such a tourist hotspot. Sunchairs on the top deck and plenty of space for everyone. Beers/ soda to buy on board. Well worth the money. We thought it may feel too busy with around 25 people but actually it was managed really well. Cat Ba has been a highlight of a month in Vietnam. Snorkelling was not very fruitful but we replaced it with jumping off the boat into the sea so no worries from us :)

Would recommend to anyone. Huge shout out to our overnight guide Tony for the good times and jokes. I hope everyone gets to experience him as a guide. Cat Ba Vision was actually recommended to us after meeting some other travelers in central Vietnam. We knew we wanted to do some kind of boat tour and had heard of the floating homestays / fishing villages but hadn't researched much. Even after looking into a few other companies, Cat Ba Vision's price seemed much more reasonable for what you got. We had a long first day out on the big boat with plenty of stops for swimming and to jump off the top (much higher than expected). Kayaking in lagoons through caves, snorkeling and a huge lunch. The guides were so friendly and genuinely seemed interested in everyone. My friend and I chose to do the 2 day, 1 night tour so we could stay over night on one of the floating homes. The homestay was part of a fishing village so that made it all that more cool. The accommodation was more that nice considering we were floating in the ocean. AC, wifi and decent showers. Day 2 was even more secluded as only 6 of our original group of 20 decided to do the overnight.
