We were able to enjoy the most amazing sunsets over the water, drink delicious cocktails made from fresh fruits, kayak past towering limestone isles, explore enormous caves and eat some of the tastiest foods...

I really enjoyed my trip to Hoa Lu - Tam Coc, totally different from the noisy busy Hanoi but just as much interesting! Although it rained on that day, I keep a wonderful souvenir of beautiful scenery and a peaceful and quiet countryside with mountains, rivers and rice fields. Our tour guide, Tuan, alias Handsome, made this day even more... More

Halong Bay was one of the to-see-place in my list. I'm glad that I've booked this amazing one day cruise. It was a great experience overall. Our tour guide, Hung, picked us up at the hotel around 7.45am. We started the 3 hours plus journey to Halong Bay by the bus which was in good condition. The boat was in... More

Out tour guide was very difficult to understand his English, we only understood 20% of what he said. The driver of the 25 person bus was holding his cell phone using it for calls often over the 8 hour drive. The food quality was poor. I can't recommend this tour company
