3 days 2 nights Halong Bay and Cat Ba
Jan 2020 • Friends
It was a great experience.
Thanks a lot for all the organisation well done.
We start the trip with one night in a boat. At first we slowly discover and explore the wonderfull Halong Bay by boat.
The food, the crew, the karaoke, the program and activities are greats (Visiting cave and farm oyster). We had fun a lot.
The room are confortable.
The day after we got Cat Ba and explore the island with an amazing spot in the jungle. The hotel is confortable as well and the food is nice. And to finnish we visited Monkey island, feed the monkeys and walk to join a high spot again.
Thank you again all is well organised and we had nothing to think, only enjoy it.

Overall, an amazing experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
We went on this cruise last week (actually operated by Apricot Cruises). Overall, we had a great time, went to see some wonderful places and our Hotel room on Cat Ba Island was a nice treat with a view over the harbour, although you spend quite limited time on Cat Ba.

There are a lot of boat changes, so as stated try to take a modest sized bag. Food was good, as were the guides and the bedroom was clean and comfy with good air con. I think some of the night time entertainment has room for improvement, but it wouldn't stop me recommending this experience.

Halong bay cruise and Cat Ba island
Apr 2019 • Friends
Good experience for 1 night on cruise and 1 night in Cat Ba island.
Visiting both Halong bay and Lan Ha bay.
Kayaking, visiting cave and pearl farm in Halong Bay
Should take light luggage for easy to move from boat to boat.
If you want to go directly to Ninh Binh from Cat Ba island at the end of tour, you can ask them to arrange it.
After this tour, we booked with BC Family Tour some tours: Mai Chau and Pu Luong, Hue motorbike tour to Hoi An, Mekong Delta tour and all tours are good.

Interesting and funny tour.
We took the 3D2N Tour because we also wanted to see the island.
On the first day you will travel to the Harbour and going to your ship. The ship was great, food is tasty and good. You will be asked if you are vegetarian or in general what you wouldn’t eat. The prices for drinks were also fine. When u have dinner the captain will drive u to a cave. As long as you are eating u can enjoy the view. The cave was ok, the view is amazing but to many ppl and not really hiking (just stairs). Then you go to an island and can swim there or go to the top (by stairs). View is even great. At the evening u had the possibility to fish or sing karaoke (both was really funny, depends on the ppl who are with u).
The second day starts with tai chi in the morning. It was funny and u should try it, it’s not that bad. Then we were kayaking and afterwards we visited monkey island. This day was my favorite because the view while kayaking was amazing as well and when you are on the monkey island you can watch the monkeys and/or can go for hiking (but this is really dangerous, so be aware of that before. You have just stairs on the beginning until the wooden stairs there after that the way is without steps, then you nearly have to find your way). We loved hiking even with slippers, so we went to the top. Afterwards you will go to your island (we stayed in cat ba), there you have a lot of restaurants, bars, some clubs and cheap massage. We tried to find a club but there were nearly no ppl in the clubs and the ppl who were there wasn’t even moving their little finger. So we went for coffee and a foot massage while watching spider man 1 :D. But you have just an evening there (we were there at 4:30pm) and on the next day you will leave after breakfast at 7:30am.
The last day is just going back with showing u how to make spring rolls. It’s more for relaxing then.

In general it was an nice experience and if you have sun then it would be even better. We had just sun on the last day.

Staff and tour guide were very friendly and helpful. If you get pink and Harry as your tour guides then it will be funny for sure :P

Halong bay cruise & Cat Ba island tour - good memorial
I searched 3 days tour in Halong and Cat Ba island, but there are not many options such as cruises in Halong bay. Finally, we found this tour and it’s very suitable for our group: 1 night on cruise and 1 night in hotel in Cat Ba island.
We did many activities and had time to relax and enjoyed sunrise, sunset in Halong Bay.
We booked another tour to Ninh Binh with BC Family Tour after this tour. All services were arranged smoothly.
Thank so much!

Nice trip!
Although the weather wasn’t perfect, we had a wonderful trip. Our tourguide Peter was very entertaining and helpful. One of the highlights was titop island and kayaking. The rooms on the boat were very comfortable. Drinks on the boat not included and quite expensive. The food on the boat was a lot but of average quality. The pick up and drop off was perfect. On our way back we had to go directly to the airport. They dropped us off before Hanoi and our tourguide Peter helped us organise a cheap taxi (8€).
