Smiley, started the company on her own to provide better private trips for travellers. She bought a medium-sized boat with her work savings to enhance guests sailing experience. The guests love her brilliant arrangement, the friendly boat captain (who is also her husband), and customisable itinerary that is worth every penny.

Have found Mrs.Smiley on Tripadvisor and she was able to organize a private tour for our family in a very limited time. She's a nice person, very professional and speaks good English - highly recommended! The boat was very OK, Captain is friendly and can speak some English too. He's also a really great cook - the food was delicious! Tour itself is so interesting, but please try to choose a good weather (we had to wait one day to have it sunny and warm). During the kayaking part you can find one more "hidden" cave (very tight and dark!) - just follow the other kayakers! Please be aware that Monkey Island has two trails on it's hill - one will take you to a very safe viewpoint with a tent, but the other one (most people take) will lead you to the top of the hill and it's REALLY DANGEROUS unless you're in a good shape and wearing trekking boots.

Four friends and I were staying on the airport of Haiphong, we got in touch with Smiley in that moment to help us to arrive to Cat Ba and to make the best of our time in Cat Ba. She sent a taxi for us in 10 minutes she managed with taxis, boats, guides, buses to sapa and with Everything we needed, she had always a quick solution. She prepared for us a great tour in Cat Ba with a delicious meal Show less

I would hire her again. perfect Our experience in Vietnam was fabulous thanks to her, she did not give us time to organize the trip and smiley prepared the routes and activities in a very short time, we always found her available and willing to help us. The route through Halong Bay, the boat, the food ... prepared everything to make us feel unique in Vietnam. I recommend it. Ana

I was very impressed and happy with the personal service, food, and wide variety of excursions (kayaking, swimming, hiking, biking). Best package tour I have ever taken. Smiley was very friendly, dependable, and helpful. I will definitely recommend this to my friends visiting Vietnam

Best day trip in Vietnam We had a lovely day in the area around Cat Ba Island,with wonderful scenery and a captain that listened to all our requests. The food he prepared on the boat was excellent and was one of the best we had in the whole country.
