Mr Cao Kim Kien was charming , cheerful guide. He made the trip really memorable and really looked after us well. The trip seemed a bit pricey - but actually it was very full day - good food (Not so much though if you aren't keen on shellfish/fish) Pity they do the pushy sales stops at overpriced 'craft' stores and...

The staff were so lovely especially Hung. He made the trip more enjoyable. Visited Titop island and the Sung Sot caves. Both were definitely worth seeing. The rooms were of good quality and the food was good too. Plenty to eat! Would definitely recommend Alova Gold to anyone wanting to experience the beauty of Halong Bay
