We did a 2 day 1 night tour with Cat Ba ventures. The tour was very easy to organise via email with Tung. We chose to pay the extra and have all our transportation organised directly with Cat Ba ventures, which I would highly recommend as this can be a nightmare otherwise. The boat we were on was good for... More

My 3 teenagers were very upset at the end of our 2 day trip as we had had such a good time. Spectacular views, not too crowded, great weather after the heat of Hanoi, kayaking, swimming and the best bit - jumping off the boat into the warm water Hien our guide took the the time to find out what...

We loved our beautiful tour of the Lan Ha Bay formations. The tour guide was fabulous with great English! We had a divine seafood lunch cooked for us as well. The tour was personalised and we were lucky enough to have a private boat. The trip was expensive but you pay for what you get!

We opted to go to Cat Ba Island and we take a trip with Cat Ba Ventures to see less touristy parts of the Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay. Our trip included kayaking and time for a swim, and then visiting some more remote parts of Ha Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. It was... More

$29 pp is the price for an 8 hour excursion out to Lan Ha bay and Halong bay including an immense and delicious lunch, water, dry bags, and a kayak trip into caves and hidden lagoons. We also stopped to swim several times. Our guide was knowledgeable and I liked that the trip moved at a relaxed pace allowing for... More

We opted to go to Cat Ba island and take a day tour as we heard that Ha Long City and the bay itself can be quite overcrowded and full of rubbish. Although we can't compare we are confident we made the right decision as we barely saw another tourist boat on our day trip with Cat Ba Ventures; we... More

We did a 2D/1N cruise with Cat Ba Ventures . I would review this trip in terms of the experience and expectations. Expectation : We expected a clean boat as a cruise like this is expensive. We were travelling as a family with small kids. At Cat Ba Ventures office, we were told that our boat is ready . We... More
