Amazing day. Our tour guide Paul was fantastic! The trip itself was planned very well. We got to Monkey Island before any other groups, which allowed us to climb to the top without others blocking the path. You should know that this is not very easy, however not so difficult. It isn't a path. It is literally climbing limestone but very doable and totally worth it. We took a swim, and later took a 2-person kayak around some of the limestone karst. Again, the timing was spectacular, as we were before any other tour groups. We got to a quiet isolated bay and enjoyed a few moments of total silence. It was so cool. We even got to see a rare langue in the wild! Paul was very helpful the entire time. He helped us navigate the climb up Monkey Island, swam with us and took us through tunnels, and while kayaking, he helped everyone get through areas where the tide was low. He was friendly, funny, and very informative. If you visit Cat Ba, this is absolutely a tour to do!

Favourite day! Went for a one day Ha Long Bay tour with the guide Paul and it was one of my favourite days spent in Vietnam! Strong recommendation, you will have lots of fun. Climbing the mountain on Monkey Island and jumping off the boat to swim to the closest 'gemstone' were definitely my favourite parts of the tour. Oh and the delicious lunch, yummy!

Amazing day ! 7 of us had the best time .. there was some quality trekking, swimming, cave dipping and some fresh seafood lunch. Kayaking through caves and coves topped up with a sightseeing tour of the bay and villages on the way back to Cat Ba. Real good one Sarah (guide) ! Thanks

Best tour with the best guide ever. Nice tour with a lot of fun things to do and with the greatest views you can imagine. Paul was the funniest guide and had an answer on every question you asked him. Can recommend it to anybody who wants to make a Ha Long Bay tour.

Great guide, nicely planned trip. The climb in the monkey island was a bit difficult and challenging, so better be prepared for that. Kayaking was excellent and also the food was good. As a whole highly recommended. "Sara" the guide is very friendly <3
