Everything went smoothly

Booked onto the Dragon Pearl Tour though Darian in early May, couldn't be happier with both Darian's booking service and quick responses and the cruise itself. Thanks so much.

Thank you, Darian, for arranging the perfect cruise on Halong Bay. With so many cruise lines and ships to choose from, making the right choice seemed daunting. But your recommendation of the Dragon Legend II (one of Indochina Junk's newest ships) was perfect! Everything about the cruise exceeded our expectations. We had a delightful time. So thank you again for... More

Darian will take excellent care of you and the travel arrangements you will need in Vietnam.he won't forget about you after you buy something from him. He will be in touch with you all the way through your Vietnam travel. Look no further, he is the right guy for you.

I was really impressed with Darian's service. He answered all my initial questions about a vast number of different cruises, number of days, itineraries, costs, .... very promptly and hence I was very reassured to book with him. Right up to the day of departure he sent updates on weather, time of luxury minibus departure (and it was luxury !!),... More

Darian was very helpful in helping us find a cruise for Halong Bay. He was quick to respond to emails and very supportive. He even sent us email updates before the cruise when there was the threat of a typhoon coming into Halong Bay. Unfortunately, the cruise we took, Pelican Cruise, was disappointing in terms of service. It was a... More

My requirements for a Halong Bay cruise were quite specific given that we were travelling with 2 small children, aged 9 & 6. Darian provided lots of helpful advice to assist in our selection and was always very prompt in replying to email questions and queries. The resulting cruise that we booked based on his recommendations (Paloma Private Cruise) was... More

We just recently returned from our trip to halong bay which we enjoyed immensely! We booked the trip quite some time in advance but were almost late as our travel fell on a busy period - almost everything was booked out but Darian managed to find us a spot on Paloma cruise boat. Also all our additional requests (transportation in... More

From the moment I contacted Darian Culbert, his professionalism and efficiency were unmatched. He responded immediately and accurately to all emails and his information was concise and appropriate. Best of all, he followed through and if there were any changes, he respnded and made adjustments which worked flawlessly. The Aphrodite Cruise was excellent - food great, Balcony room lovely, service... More
