We had been recommended this boat by another couple who we met travelling and who had recently done the 3 day 2 night cruise. We decided to do the 2 day 1 night and felt that it was long enough. It is a jam packed schedule and you get very little down time. From arriving on the boat, you are... More

It was an enjoyable trip especially that we had a very good english speaking tour guide, Minh, He was very approachable and was always there to assist us. It is more often difficult to connect with Vietnamese due to language barrier but our tour was made convenient for us!
