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

The best day we had on Cat Ba! We did the one day boat and kayak tour to Halong Bay and Han Lan Bay. Our guide Phuc was so knowledgeable and helpful, the kayaking was awesome (he takes you into lots of great lagoons and let's you kayak as you wish), the grotto was interesting and only discovered very recently...

I did a 3 day and 2 night boat trip with my 2 teenage children. We had a fantastic trip and found the scenery around Ha Long bay and Cat Ba more spectacular than we thought. The kayak trips through the caves were amazing..... We organized everything by email ahead of time and it worked really well. The only recommendations... More

This was an absolute perfect end of our trip. We stayed in Hanoi, which is pretty far, you better stay in Hai Phong to go to CatBa. Either way, everything was perfctly arranged, a driver of Tung picked us up in the hotel, brought us to Hai Phong, arranged our tickets for the boat which would take us to Cat... More
