By going with this company you are getting the best value. Avoid all the touts on the street selling you promises that are not kept. Excellent english speaking guide. Great food. Good boat. Great day out. Pay the extra money and get a lot more

loved the bike ride to the village, the school was wonderful and the villages friendly. Pearls could be purchased here for a reasonable price.

Booked with Cat Ba Ventures after reading the reviews, and felt it was an excellent day with great value for money. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and provided enough commentary to keep it interesting and not boring. I visited Cat Ba in the winter season (Feb) so swimming wasn't really an option, but the Kayaking was fantastic and our lunch... More

After hearing about how hit or miss the tours of the bay could be I'm so stoked we found cat ba ventures. Our guide, Phuc, was awesome, as were the cooks. He led us on some kayaking through caves that will blow your mind! So fun. Lunch was stellar with so much good food. The boat had shade and nice... More

We decided to do the 2 day / 1 night trip to kick off our honeymoon and we're so glad we did. As everyone else has experienced, Mr Tung was super helpful in organising and clearly knows how to run a seamless operation. We were told to expect a driver at 6:20am at our hotel in Hanoi, and sure enough... More

Thanks for a great day trip on Lan Ha bay, Phuk (did I spell your name right?) and crew! Despite the chilly, overcast day (it's a tough season for these tours because of the weather), I had a great time and happy I spent the little extra. Phuk was a professional. friendly, and energetic tour guide, knowledgable and clearly an... More

This was without doubt the highlight of our visit to Vietnam. We spent 3 days and 2 nights on board a small boat for 2 guests with our guide Hung, the captain and chef. Before our trip Mr Tung was extremely helpful in answering any questions and directing us to Cat Ba. The trip itself was brilliant. We really enjoyed... More
