The tour was great! The bus pick up us early in the morning to start before other tours. The landscapes were awesome. We did many activities like kayaking through caves in calm waters, swimming in a very peaceful and lonely lagoon, and hiking in the Monkey Island. The lunch was delicious and with many options, including vegetarian, and it was a lot of food. And finaly, but not least, our guide Than was very kind and cheerful, se was always thinking in pie wellness and security; he speaks very good english, and he knows a lot of good tips about the bays and its surroundings. We were only 23 people in the boat, so the experience became more prívate. Overall, the tour was excellent and for a few more dollars, compared with the other tours, it's worth ir.

We had an awesome trip with our tour guide Kong. He is the best guide we had in whole Vietnam. Very knowledgeable about everything, we were stunned about how much he knows. He is funny and takes care very well. The food was the best one we had on any tour. We were not rushed at any point. By setting off at 7.30 we were ahead of anyone. You will have a great time for sure if you choose to do this trip and have Kong as your guide.

This day trip is well worth it and was wonderful! The scenery we saw was incredible and as the boat was small and not a huge cruise boat we got to go to very remote areas of Lang Ha and Halong Bay where there were none to very few tourists which was very special and great if you want to get away from other tourists. Our guide Thank was awesome - so sweet and funny and very informative on safety as well as general information about the places we were going. The day involves kayaking through caves which was amazing, beautiful traditional lunch on the boat, swimming in remote areas and hiking up Monkey Island all guided by our tour guide. I would highly recommend this tour!
