We have unfortunately had to cancel the trip we had so been looking for. However I feel I jave to write a review even though we have not had our trip. I was so impressed by the information and support I had recieved before booking. With the appearance of Covid and the effects I did wonder how things may change. I should not have worried the professionalism with which we have been responded and refunded within days has been unbelievable. We are gutted to not be able to have our planned once in a lifetime holiday. However we will be without a doubt be booking this as soon as we can re-organise our trip. Thank you so much for all your help so far. I cant wait til we can actually meet you all. xx

We really enjoyed our 3 day/2 night private tour with Cat Ba Ventures in March on the small boat called the Dolphin. Our guide, Hien, was very flexible on tailoring the trip to our requests -- combining multiple kayaking outings with a planned trek. The food was excellent -- large servings of seafood, shellfish, meat, vegetables and fresh fruits. The captain and cook even dug fresh clams for our dinner on the second night. We were particularly impressed with the company’s responsiveness to changing conditions. Unfortunately, the government was closing down tours and sights in the area due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We were informed late on our 2nd night that most things would be closed starting the next day, and that we should return that evening. Mr. Tung from the company’s office quickly took the decision to bring us back to Cat Ba City and booked us into a great hotel that night, and ensured that we made our bus back to Hanoi the next morning as the island was closing its borders and quarantining the population and island. The situation was handled extremely professionally. Our tour was right up there as one of our favourite parts of our 2 month trip in Vietnam. We loved the small boat, staying away from the areas where the big cruise ships usually conglomerate to give us a more unique experience. And we enjoyed the kayaking much more than we thought we would (lagoons, caves and opportunities to stop on small beaches to swim if we wanted to). Cat Ba Ventures is the best and we're so happy we found them!

Fantastic 2D/1N cruise in Feb 2020. Family of 4 went on private cruise. Chose Cat Ba ventures over the big cruises because they spend more time on the water and have smaller boats that get off the main track a bit more and we stayed with a single boat the whole time (no day boat to deal with). Absolutely amazing trip, thank you.

So glad we took the advice of Lonely Planet and went straight to Cat Ba Island, rather than Halong Bay. Most fabulous day with Cat Ba Ventures, because it was "winter" there was no benefit to doing an overnight trip, this was perfect.

Best Organisation. I had a luxury Suite on the boat. Good meal. Nice and funny guide. Halong Bay is worth to visit it. I have never seen such a beautiful landscape bevor.
