We wrote Cat Ba Ventures an Email to ask what they recommend because we wanted to see the not so popular Lang Ha Bay as well. Mr. Tung answered within a few a hours with very helpful informations. He suggested a private 2-day-1-night trip on their Dolphin Boat. We could give our wishes for the trip and they could even... More

We took the full day trip of cruising through the Lan Ha bay alternated with kayaking and a visit of Moneky Island. The tour sails all the way up to the Ha Long Bay part. If you are hesitating if you should rather go for the full Ha Long Bay experience instead of "just" Lan Ha bay: no worries. Lan... More

First of all, thank you for your comment but there is a mistaken here! You joined the full day tour from your hotel, Pineapple hotel, not our company! We operate all the cruises which are very different with other agencies. We operate Lan Ha and Ha Long Bay tours with kayaking activities, avoid touristic areas, crusing further around Lan Ha...

My wife and I were disappointed with our 2 day, one night boat trip with Cat Ba Ventures. We'd give it 2.5 stars as it was below average, but not horrible. We arrived the night before to pay for the trip and were told everything was good to go. However, when we showed up the next morning to leave, we... More

Dear Mike, Thank you for your review! First of all, we want to say sorry again for the thing happened with the boat. We arranged everything on the boat for your tour but in the morning, the captain said that the engine of the boat was broken down and it was not possible to stay on the sleeping boat. So... More

We did the all-day Lan Ha Bay - Ha Long Bay boat trip with kayaking, and it was fabulous! From the owner Mr. Trung, to the office staff, to our tour guide, Phuc, everyone took great care to ensure our day was perfect. We were picked up from our hotel, given a huge bottle of water, and great information from... More

To avoid the busy hustle of Halong City and overcrowded Halong Bay, we decided to set off from Cat Ba island for a tour of Lan Ha bay, and Cat Ba Ventures provided the perfect experience. They arranged for us to be picked up at 5:30am from Hanoi station after our overnight train journey, and sent us off on the... More

We booked a day tour from Cat Ba Island, taking us through the local bays and into Halong Bay (and we could see the skyscrapers of Halong Bay in the distance, so we knew we had made it that far, unlike some other trips). We had a well-equipped boat just for the group, and everything about the day was well-organised... More

Large and comfortable boat, delicious lunch, nice routes and activities. Kayaking and jumping off the boat were the highlight for this day trip of which we were lucky to see monkeys. And our tour guide Power :)), i can't say about him enough: friendly, great english, good sense of humor, knowledgeable. What else are you looking for?

We booked a 2 day/1 night private tour with Mr Tung of Cat Ba Ventures and, though it was a little more expensive than the Halong Bay big group tours, it was worth every dollar. Apart from the fact that we were in one of the most incredible natural wonders we had seen, what really made our experience special was... More
