“Great Value for money”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We started off with a 2 day cruise on Halong Bay. I relaxed on the boat deck taking in the wonderful view of the limestone mountains as we cruised past many Islands in the bay. I enjoyed the excellent seafood lunch that was served in the boat restaurant. Then I went off to Kayak in the emerald waters to explore the lovely lagoons and nearby caves. My room was comfortable and had a great view of the ocean. As the boat anchored for the night I had dinner on the boat deck. The next day I watched the amazing sunrise over the bay and enjoyed an excellent breakfast. The price for the cruise was reasonable and it was not crowded. Great way to explore Halong Bay.

“Excellent tour to Halong Bay!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

After much deliberation my boyfriend and I decided to book a trip to Halong Bay with Vega Travel, and we're so glad we did! There are so many different tours available but this one really is value for money and great fun. We spent the first night of the trip on board the boat in a very nice cabin and the hotel they arranged for the second night on Cat Ba Island was a great 3 star hotel.
The activities we took part in were great and very well organised. We visited the surprising cave, went kayaking twice, did some trekking, cycling and there was also the option to go swimming in the Bay. We also got to have a look at some of the locals houses on Cat Ba Island which was very interesting. The food was excellent and there was so much of it! Our tour guide Chooky was a really lovely guy and made the trip really fun and a bit more personal which was nice. His English was excellent and he had so much knowledge about Vietnamese culture and history. All in all a wonderful trip and money definitely well spent!

“Great Cruise, Awesome Guide”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

We did the 3 day 2 night cruise with vega travel to Halong bay. Whole experience was so good and so much more than we were expecting. We got to do everything the tour said plus more, this included kayaking, twice for 1.5 hours each, trekking, cycling, visiting a village and learning about how they live and also some improvised rock climing by our tour guide.
Our guide, Chukky, was amazing! Knew all answers to our questions and was great fun as well. The boat was great with really nice rooms and tasty food. The hotel on cat ba island the 2nd night was even better.
Tours in Hanoi are a minefield but this one was great and not too pricy at $165. Highly recommend.

“Sa Pa Bac Ha Markets”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We arrived in Hanoi and has a few tour agencies in mind. We went to Vega on Trip Advisor recommendation. They were first class. We wanted to see the Sunday markets at Bac Ha and they suggested a 2 day trek around Sa Pa with a home stay, We elected to take a private tour of the Markets.
They arranged everything from taking us to the train station for our overnight trip to Lao Cai, mini bus to Sa Pa where we met Tu who was our guide for the next 3 days. How wonderful he was. Tu took our group of 5 on a track less travelled by the masses. The only people we met on the way were the lovely HMong ladies and locals. Our overnight home stay was also remote and a great experience with the Dzay minority people who welcomed us into their own home with their 2 children. We had a most memorable night with the family. We trekked 16kms through all sorts of terrains, including many a terraced rice paddies.
Day 2 we carried on to some more remote villages, visiting homes and finished with a wonderful lunch. Back to Sa Pa for free time and great accommodation.
Day3. We had a guide and driver take us to Bac Ha markets about 3 hours from Sa Pa. This was the one of our most memorable experiences in Vietnam. Tu was the best guide we could imagine. We will go back one day!

“Halong Bay Vega travel”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Very nice experience. We can highly recommend this travel agency in Hanoi. We took the 2 day trip to Halong Bay. Our guide Chuc spoke English very well and was a surplus to the whole trip. The group consists out of max 13 persons. The first day we visited a beautiful cave and went kayaking in Halong Bay. Magnificent! The second day we visited an island where we had to take 340 stairs, but it was worth it. What a view! After that we cruised back to the wharf and drove back to Hanoi. We arrived back in Hanoi around 5 pm.
