We have booked the private boat tour for a group of 8 of us and the experience was perfect! Kenny did amazing job as our guide and the boat captain was amazing too. The kayaking experience was one of the best in my life, the kayaks are very good and light and the spot is breathtakingly beautiful. The route we've done is a popular one, but we were taken there at a time when other boats were somewhere else. And that went for all the tour, the timing was choosen in such a way that we rarely crossed with any other boats and we had a feeling as if we are alone in the bay for most of the duration of the trip. The food that was prepared was amazing! A proper meal, not just a pick nick kind of lunch. A part of that, voluntary we started collecting rubbish on one of the smaller beaches and Kenny mentioned that he is planning and trying to organise an weekly activity of collecting the garbage from the sea as part of the visiting the bay experience. I wish him the best of luck for that and definitely recommend the company for anyone as our experience with Vietnam Insiders was spotless

Reasonable price for just the 2 of us. Got to go where ever we wanted. Boat driver so funny and happy to take us to his house in the floating village to see real life and the guide very helpful and spoke good English and was happy to take us to places we wanted to see. He very knowledgeable about the area and made us feel so welcome. They couldn't do enough for us. I highly recommend them. Fantastic day. Thanks guys

We did a 1 day boat trip with kayaking and a visit of Monkey Island at the end of the trip (no sunset view because of the cloudy weather). The boat and it’s captain were so nice, the guide (Ninh) was friendly, competent and had a very good English, the lunch was yummy and the environment awesome. They planned our tour according to the timetables of the big tourist boats, so that we were at the same spots, but always a bit later than the big groups, which means that most of the time we didn’t meet any other tourists. It was only the three friends of our group on the boat, so we could enjoy all that exclusively. Can’t tell you of course about how the trip is with the maximum of 12 persons on board. For what we experienced, we can definitely recommend it!

We made a tour with 3 persons to explore the landscape of cat ba with a boat. We went Kayaking, had a great big lunch on the boat and made a very beautiful hike on monkey island. Including enough time to relax on the boat in between while enjoying the landscape. Ninh is a great tour guide he has a lot of interesting informations, he knows the area and he’s really friendly and helpful. The boat driver was really friendly too. He cooked us an fresh and tasty lunch directly on the boat. The trip was an amazing unique experience! It was a great decision.

What an absolute dream of a day! Ninh and the crew provide a wonderful way to experience some of the stunning archipelago surrounding Cat Ba. The staff put on a yummy lunch, which was then followed by Ninh leading as out on a breathtaking kayak tour (but you still have the freedom to set your own pace). Ninh then brings you back to have a bit of fun jumping from the boat with your friends followed by some ice drinks for the ride home. Just want to say thank you again to Ninh and the crew. You were great!! I hope to visit again.
