“2d/1n Halong Bay = unforgettable experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2014 NEW

My wife and I went on the 2d/1n tour to Halong Bay with Vega travel. The long travel time from Hanoi to Halong Bay is quickly forgotten upon embarking the trunk! The ship is very well maintained, has all the facilities needed, and the crew is friendly and helpful!
Our guide, Duckie, proved to be a cheerful, responsible tour guide, explaining the program clearly and listening to and giving adequate response or follow-up to the guests' questions and requirements (diatery, sickness, ...)!
The program is very varied: relaxing on the trunk deck, kayaking, magnificent views, visit to a cave and even swimming in the Bay!!
Excellent value for money!

“Beyond Expectation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2014 NEW

My husband and I went for a 3 days 2 nights trip to Ha Long bay for our honeymoon trip. Searching through trip advisor, we decided to try vega cruise as the price is affordable, the package include was so attractive with kayaking, climbing, cycling as we loved some adventures. I loved the great response to my booking, they were very helpful and responsive. They delivered every single thing that they promised. The cruise is clean, tidy, beautiful and the crew is very welcoming. We had wonderful meal that each meal comes with at least 8 mainly local dishes (we had to pay for our own drinks though). Our tourguide Chuc was wonderful in telling us the stories and being very responsible in making sure we are safe and had a good time.

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

Went on a 3 day 2 night trip to Ha Long bay with our two teenagers. Fantastic experience! Our guide Chuk was informative and very attentive to our needs (and to ensuring that all four of us had a good time). The hiking and cycling was challenging enough to keep the teenagers engaged ("best day ever" enthused our 16 year old) but there was plenty of down time as we cruised the waters and appreciated this amazing natural beauty. I really recommend Vega for their customer service which was really outstanding. You certainly won't go hungry! (Note that you need to pay for all drinks excluding coffee with breakfast but I gather this forms part of the staff's remuneration.) Highly recommended.

“Sapa Trekking 3d/2n”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

The trekking trip through the villages and rise paddies around Sa Pa with Vega Travel was great. We had a very small group of only 3 tourists and we went on a trek away from the other tourist groups. The trek was about 24 km and we walked for 7-8 hours in total on those two days. The route was very adventurous and required some physical fitness. But it's doable for all ages.

The train ride was ok too. There are a lot of tourist on the night train. It feels pretty safe.

Our tour guide, Tu, is a local guide. His English is very good and he provided a lot of information and answered all our questions sufficiently. Otherwise the itinerary provided by the company is followed by the guide.

The homestay is an amazing experience. With Vega Travel you will stay in a village away from all the other tourist places. The family was extremely welcoming and the food was awesome.

Overall everything was very well organized. And considering that the train ride is very expensive, you get a good value for money with this tour. Just keep in mind that you will need tips for the local ladies following and helping you along the trek.

“Go with Vega Travel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

We hired Vega Travel for a 2-day trip to Halong Bay. After reviewing multiple tour companies, Vega Travel seemed the most responsive, helpful, accommodating and yet one of the most reasonably priced! It actually seemed a bit too good to be true, but when we arrived, they exceeded our every expectation. Our guide for the 2-days was Duckie and he was the best guide we had in 2-weeks of traveling Vietnam and Cambodia. He was great with our two girls (9 and 11), told lots of stories about his life and growing up, which provided a much more personal feel then just "guiding". The boat on Halong Bay was really nice, the meals were the best we had on our trip, the chef even took the time to teach our girls how to make the "vegetable flowers" and decorations that were always on our plates. Our boat took the routes less traveled in Halong Bay, allowing us to see the beautiful scenery without all the tour boats. It could not have been a better experience. Hire Vega Travel and request Duckie!
