“A relaxing and very well organized tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

We did the 3days/2nights tour with a stay at a hotel on Cat Ba Island and it was great!

We got picked up at our hotel on time and went by bus to ha long bay. The bus ride was 3,5 hours with half an hour break at a ceramic / jewellery factory. The bus itself was clean and comfortable. Only the driving style of the Vietnamese people takes a little to get used to.

When we arrived a Ha-Long-Bay we got off the bus and found ourselves welcomed with a refreshing towel and fresh juice on the boat only fiveminutes later.

The boat looks exactly like I would want it to look like: not a shiny 5 star cruise, but a robust one with a lot of charme, a comfortable eating room and cozy cabines. There are only seven cabines which limits the group size to 14 people which is good in my opinion.

Every activity (kayaking, cycling, hiking) had the perfect time - it was never too Lon or too short.

The food was simply amazing and the prices for drinks are absolutely acceptable.

The hotel on cat-ba island was nice, we again had a great dinner and breakfast.

The staff and our tour guide "C" were very friendly and their English was fine. "C" was able to tell us lot about everything and knew the answers to almOst all questions.

The bus ride back was an exact copy of the ride there.

If you're looking for a great mix of activities, free time and awesome food and don't need unnecessary luxury, look no further!

Thank you Elation-crew and especially C for a great time!

“2 night cruise in Halong Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We had one night on a boat in Halong Bay and one night in Cat Ba island. Room in boat, the crew and tour guide Nam was very nice. Specially we liked our tour guide as he was very friendly and spoke very good english. Food was tasty and they served it a lot.
Cat Ba island resort and spa was not so nice, they dont diserve 4 stars. They should get some english lessons and also more knowledge about service. Also the spa should be renovated as it looked really poor and unpleasant.
All in all the nature is superb and tour itself was nice. Definately worth a visit.

“Visit to Halong Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The first contact was when we were picked up from outside our hotel and we met the very lovely Bihn. He was charming and tried very hard to inform us of what was going to happen on our trip. His english was good. The drive to the boat was enjoyable and we had one stop off at a ceramics factory which was fine. We arrived at Halong Bay and although it was very busy we felt very secure with our guide. The boat was comfortable and the food was fantastic. The chef on board is very creative with the decoration of his dishes. Drink prices were fine. Although thre weather was overcast we really enjoyed the fantastic scenery. The kayaaking was good fun but perhaps a little uncomfortable for my old bones ( probably my lack of fitness actually). We stayed one night on the island. The hotel was very comfortable but slightly lacking in atmosphere. We walked along the promenade in the evening. Visit to the caves was very interesting. The taxi was waiting for us when we arrived back. Journey back to hotel was on tikme which was very important as my daughter had a flight to catch. All in all we were very pleased with the firm and the trip. Would certainly recommend it. Mihn , the guide was great .

“Very nice discovering of Halong Bay & Vietnames cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

First, thank you to our very good guide Binh who took very very good care of us.
The best parts were the room, which is perfect, the food, which is impressively beautiful and excellent, and the kayak in the Halon Bay that make you discover it in a more realistic way !
It's true that there are a lot of tourists everywhere, but being on an ODC Travel boat allows you to be with less people and discover it in a very nice quiet way.
Moreover, Halong Bay is a true wonder that has to be seen in ones life ;)
