This is our first contribution during our trip in Viet Nam. We went asking for the day trip to visit Ha Long bay at some different agencies on the island and they all gave different prices for this tour. We finally chose Cat Ba ventures which the price was few dollars extra, but it was very valuable for money instead... More

This company was recommended to us by Blue Swimmer. Later we realised that it is also in the Lonely Planet. Hence many people are booking their cruises with Cat Ba Ventures. The two day trips were all booked out when we came to the office. The popularity of this agency seemingly leads to the attitude of the owner who couldn't... More

I heard great things about Cat Ba Ventures from a friend, so me and my friend decided to book a one day tour with them. We were not dissapointed. There were 10 people in the group, so it wasnt very crowded. While driving through Ha Long Bay, there are some parts where the water isnt clean, but the guide made... More

Ok it's definitely more expensive than the cheap tour you can find to visit Halong Bay. But it definitely worth the price considering the fact you are alone almost all the time (we saw just 10 boats in 2 days), that the food is excellent, the guide excellent, evening thing was great

We did the 2 day / 1 night tour with Cat Ba Ventures. We booked a deluxe junk as there were 5 of us in our family so had the whole boat to ourselves. Tours cost a bit more than Halong Bay but I would definitely recommend as there are no crowds or having to queue to use the kayaks... More

We booked a 2 days/1 night boat tour with this company 3 weeks ago. We really wanted to do something special and we spent a lot of time on the Internet to look for the best company, and Cat Ba Venture is the best!! The tour was amazing, the boat is better than a 5star hotel, the staff is kind... More

I think they have changed hands as I found them a scam. I paid $88 dollars for a transfer to Cat Ba island which is expensive. The drive to the dock was fine but then we were pointed to a mass of people and left for 2 hours. We got on a boat and had the worst ferry ever. I... More
