We did the one day tour of Lan Ha and Halong Bay and all went according to plan (except the weather). The boat was clean and in good repair and the guide and crew were friendly. The food was delicious and was ample amounts of everything for everyone and great vegetarian choices. Only down side were the kayaks were old... More

We paid $120 each for five of us on a private boat for two days/one night. Everything was great generally, went to some lovely locations that were almost completely empty of other tourists. The kayaking and snorkelling was great, we were taken into some secluded lagoons via some dodgy tunnels and we even saw some heavily endangered White Headed Langurs,... More

Did a one day trip based on the reccommendation from another traveller. The trip was amazing however I think it must be said that fellow travellers on the tour help make the trip so enjoyable. The tour was very well organised and we had a really good tour guide. While it seemed a bit more expensive than other tour operators... More

After our arrivel on Cat Ba island we started looking for a good 2 or 3 day tour to Lan Ha and Ha Long Bay. Apparently, one has to book these multiple day trips ahead of time, because all of them were full. Cat Ba Ventures informed us that we could sign up for the One day tour the next... More

We booked a one day trip with Cat Ba Ventures to Ha long bay. We originally planned to do an over night trip but had read so many reviews that mentioned rats or mice on board the ships and robberies that take place so decided to give it a miss. Cat Ba Venture seemed to be a little bit more... More

A friend and I booked ourselves onto a one day boat trip around Lan Ha and Halong bay with these guys. It was wonderful, one of the highlights of our whole vietnam trip. The boat trip was really well organised and at no point did it feel like we were being herded like cattle (as it did with some other... More

We went on their boating and kayaking trip around the islands near Cat Ba. The staff were friendly and helpful. The lunch was delicious, fresh and plentiful. The kayaks were a little old and bashed up but perfectly fine for the still waters of the bays and lagoons. I would recommend them.

We booked a 3 day/2 night trip w Cat Ba Ventures and rode aboard the Dolphin for our journey. Overall it was a positive experience, but we felt that one night would have been better. On the plus side, the crew we had - our guide, captain, and cook - were very friendly! We enjoyed getting to know them. Halong... More

We actually visited October 2012, but somehow I had forgotten to put up a review so I'm doing it now. I found out about Cat Ba Ventures from TA forums and was in contact with Mr. Tung via e-mail. He was very responsive and helpful, even though there was very little time until our trip. In the end he got... More
