Very nice tour, at a very reasonable price. The guide and the food was excellent. The lugar could have been a little bigger, as shown on the pictures. But in general very good and clean. If the weather had been nice, it would have been perfect.

Very nice experience! Amazing Tourguide Hung did everything we asked him for. He took nice pictures of us and was able to answer all of our Questions. He seemed to be very in to historics and myths about the Halong Bay and gave some very interesting insight on them.
