Please be aware that there are only 2 or 3 licensed tour operators on Cat Ba but when you arrive you will a number of agencies and touts trying to sell you unregulated tours. They can be quite disappointing as they are usually put together haphazardly and very unreliable. Yesterday I had the pleasure of going with Cat Ba Ventures... More

My husband and I took the one day Lan Ha bay/Ha Long bay boat trip, and we can't recommend this tour enough! The guide was friendly, spoke excellent English, and knew a lot about the history, ecology, geology, etc. of the area. The general feel of the tour was really mellow- we were given plenty of information, but were also... More

we were so happy with this tour! Guide was nice, funny and super knowledgable (a really smart guy). The food was awesome and plentiful. The boat was clean and very comfortable. The best part was how relaxed it was, no rushing or pushing. We didn't feel like walking dollar signs but just guests enjoying seriously amazing surroundings. Kayaking was a... More

Our guide was nice, spoke perfect English (he was a former English teacher ;-P ), well mannered and took care of any details of our cruise. Even if the price can be a little higher compare to others,... More

My partner and I booked by email a 2 days / 1 night cruise around Cat Ba island, shared with other two guests. Communication with the chef of the company was fast and efficient. The tour included visits to several bays, kayaking to hidden lagoons (ranging from easy to OMG am I really doing this?!), passing through fisherman villages and... More

We went on the day long Lan Ha Bay / Halong Bay trip including kayaking and had a great time. The scenery was amazing, in particular I liked the contrast of the floating fishing village in front of the amazing krasts. Our guide spoke good English and provided interesting commentary throughout the day. The kayaking took us through a number... More

We looked around for a boat trip to the Ha Long Bay, and in the end we choose this operator, mainly because of the LP recommendation. It was a perfect day, even when the weather was not brilliant. We saw many of the famous limestone islands, in the less touristic zones, a floating fishing village, beatifull lagoons and caves. We... More
