Every single thing about this cruise was outstanding. The beauty of Ha Long Bay speaks for itself. The Red Dragon 1 ship was exactly what we needed: five cabins, eleven guests. The food was glorious from the first to the last mouthful. The service was beyond belief, perfect, friendly, efficient. And our Tour Guide, Alex - get him if you... More

Before arrival the communication from Darian was great; quick and helpful responses to all queries. The cruise was fantastic and to be honest we couldn't fault it at all. Tour guide very good, lovely boat, interesting excursions and really excellent food made the trip a definite highlight of our trip to Vietnam. Would certainly recommend.

A special birthday holiday ( 2 couples) found our stay on the Valentine one of the most amazing experiences. The service provided by Darian was efficient, professional and far surpassed our expectations. We had the most amazing time on Haloung Bay,beautiful boat, professional staff, amazing food. Would recommend a trip on the Valentine to anyone. A Jacouzzi in each cabin... More

Darian was extremely helpful, fast to respond to all emails and questions and cheaper than going direct to the boat operator! Unfortunately we had to postpone our cruise. Darian refunded our money immediately! I could not more highly recommend booking through Darian and we will be again once our trip to Vietnam is rescheduled. Thanks Darian!

We engaged Darian to organise a custom itinerary taking in a luxury 2 days cruise in Ha Long Bay and a driver to take us to the Emerelda Resort in Nhim Bhin. Communications during the organizing phase went perfectly with immediate responses and no miss communications despite our somewhat demanding requirements. The cruise with Indochina Sail was fantastic (see report... More

Darian is very efficient and responds in a timely manner to all your emails. All communication is clear and in good english. Payment is by the Vietnamese equivalent of PAYPAL so very straight forward and no over charging for Credit Cards or sending money by Western Union. After our cruise Darian contacted us for feedback and comments on the cruise.... More

I boarded the Phoenix Luxury cruise and It was a luxurious experience for me. The room was lovely, clean with a outstanding view from the windows. The food was supper except for the pumpkin soup (which I hate the most) being served twice in a row. The activities they offered (kayaking, cooking. etc) were very fun especially squid fishing (unfortunately... More

Darian Culbert was extremely helpful in arranging train tickets and accommodation in Sapa and also reasonably priced transport from Hanoi airport to our hotel. Darian was prompt in answering our emails and arranged for tickets to be delivered to our hotel on arrival in Hanoi. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Darian's services.

We did a bit of research and found that there were so many different cruises to Harlong Bay. We picked Darian as he had good reviews and the prices were much cheaper than others we'd seen but not the cheap backpacker version if you know what I mean. The reply rate and level of communication was very quick and the... More

Booked a Halong bay cruise via darian after searching for all the available online agents. Was offered a upgrade from phoenix cruise to phoenix luxury cruise and the price offered was way cheaper than the rest of the operators. Overall i would recommend Darian if you are planning your trips around vietnam.
