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

We took the 1 day hike to Catba national park. No one else signed up so we ended up being just 2 with our guide. He spoke very little english but was very adequate. Hike is a bit harder then they describe it. 10 km of rather rough hills with slippery stones followed by 5 km on a flat road... More

We booked a 3days/2nights cruise on Ha Long bay with Cat Ba ventures. Mr Tung offers great services and adapt his offers to everyone from prepayment to the cruise! We had a great captain- 'chef cuisinier'. Each meal was delicious and the menu was so various and better than what we had expected. It was a great experience for us,... More

We did a cruise through Lan Ha and Ha Long bays with Cat Ba Ventures. Part of the trip was good and we enjoyed seeing this part of the world. One boat was good. The food was good. The scenery was gorgeous. The kayaking was fun. The not so fun part was being jostled around by Cat Ba Ventures. They... More

Cat Ba Ventures gave us an unforgettable experience of Lan Ha Bay and Ha Long Bay. Taking the day tour, we explored caves by kayak (beyond the tourist path), had a delicious fresh lunch, went to one of the two Grottos in the bay, and had a swim at the end of the day. Our knowledgeable guide Phuc gave us... More

On honeymoon, we spent 3 days 2 nights on Lan Ha and Ha Long Bays, with Cat Ba Ventures on the 2-guest boat the Dolphin. We are so happy we did - it was a wonderful experience, one of the best during our tour of Vietnam. Cuong is a great chef, and we ate well. Tien is a fine captain,... More

Kay - our local guide was already waiting for us. We... More

We did the 2 day/1 night boat trip. Weather pretty misty, but it added to the atmosphere and the kayaking into the lagoons was brilliant - even saw the white headed langurs! Food was brilliant and the crew were great.
