I chose Signature Journey because they were recommended as reliable during the uncertain times of after the COVID-19 pandemic. I didn’t want to miss the Halo g Bay tour while in the area. All in all we (family of 3) were happy with the cruise, the itinerary was good and scenery was incredible. Also - they were so kind to send us a taxi to pick us up as we were staying a bit out of Cat Ba town and taxi also dropped us off afterwards with no extra costs. The only thing I would improve would be the food (basic Vietnamese food). And tell people to bring towels if they plan to swim.

You cannot offer a trip saying it will at 5pm then at 3:20 we are back. If people have to catch bus at 3:30pm either they go on another tour or you say so before selling the tour. I was just expecting my last hour an a half to enjoy on the deck while you gave me the shocking news in 2mins we were getting in the port. It was awful

Had a fantastic boat trip through the Cat Ba coastline with Signature Journey today! They took us off the beaten track away from the most touristy areas, and we had the opportunity to kayak to and explore some of the area’s beautiful beaches, which was really great!
