Amazing experience. I travel by myself in Vietnam. And I had the luck to explore the Halong bay, with this tour. Ba the captain, is very enthusiastic, he will do everything that you feel like in this family.He is also born here and he is an ancient fishermen, so he know a lot of details about the bay. I can just say do it and enjoy.

Wonderful boat trip! Everything was excellent from the very start/pick up from the hotel. We took a group boat trip but not many people were there which made it very private event. You get aprox 1 hour to see the monkey island, 2 hours for kayaking and and an excellent dinner - big bowl of rice, tasty tofu, very fresh and well seasoned spinach and a fish.

What a wonderful day. From the first pick-up at our hotel promptly on 8.00am to the final drop-off at exactly 4.30 pm the day went like precision clockwork .The bus trip across the island to the boat harbour gave a broader picture of life on the island . The boat was sea-worthy , clean & comfortable , & the captain , Mr. Ba was fluent in English , warm & welcoming . The boat trip itself was fantastic through a myriad of sheer-cliffed islands & all the activities were great , well prepared & well catered for .The climb to the top of the mountain was too tough for we 70 year olds but we went halfway & still got a fabulous view . We took the opportunity of the extra time to swim in the pleasant temperatured & clean water . Kayaking great , diving great . The lunch was the best we have had in Vietnam . A whole fish beautifully cooked & presented , rice , egg , vegetables , tofu ; all great .Cooking was done by Mr. Ba's brother as this is a small family business .I would rate it as the best day we had in Vietnam . Thank you Mr Ba .

Awesome Tour of the beautiful limestone islands in Ha Long Bay, from Ca_t Ba island. Tour guide/captain/crew were all super friendly! The food was great that they served us for lunch! Must climb up to the top of Monkey Island.
