Had an awesome time visiting UNESCO’s Halong Bay on an all day private tour. There were 7 of us in my group. Our tour guide, Bruce Lee, grandmaster black belt in kung fu and jeet kundo :), did an excellent job from start to finish. His sense of humor, geopolitical knowledge of Vietnam’s history, and the natural significance of the Bay was very well received by everyone. I particularly admired his ability to connect with each of us. Our boat staff was very welcoming and friendly. They prepared various tasty dishes unique to the area. It is often easy for a tourist to be enamored by the natural wonder known as Halong Bay and find themselves inspired by it. But it is the local Vietnamese that you come in contact with and learn from that you find yourself appreciative of life’s simplicity and hopefully find your own place in this interconnected world. I highly recommend Amazing Sails for anyone who wishes to explore the natural beauty of Halong Bay and the opportunity to “live” through the eyes of the local “floating region” people.

We were recommended this tour by friends and hotel and it truly was one of the best tours we have done on a 2 week long trip. Hieu our tour guide was very friendly and was able to spend personal time with each person on the tour group to make sure we learned more about Vietnam it’s people culture and kept us informed throughout the tour. We had an amazing lunch followed by a 5 course menu dinner that was delicious, went kayaking through some of the bay and recommended other places for us to visit. Money well spent considering we are only here 4 days and want to maximize our stay. Thank you Hieu

Amazing Sails provided a fantastic service on this one-day cruise around Ha Long Bay. The transfer from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay was seamless, and the service on the boat was excellent. Our guide, Bruce Lee, was very kind and knowledgeable; I really appreciated his hard work throughout the day. All the staff on board were very professional. The day was a lot of fun, and the excursions to the cave and the fishing village were well planned and coordinated by the team.

We are visiting Vietnam for the first time and used this tour to visit Ha Long Bay and Bai tu Long bay. We LOVED this tour. It was really well done and extremely enjoyable. Pickup was easy, there was delicious food, we saw wonderful sites, we kayaked, we made fruit art, and we learned a lot. QA, our guide and company owner, was the best! He was very nice and informative and funny and we really loved getting to tour with him. Highly recommend!!!
