When I had just two days to navigate through hundreds of Halong Bay cruise options, I found the process overwhelming. Fortunately, I came across Darian Culbert on TripAdvisor when I read his excellent reviews, and I sent him an e-mail in addition to contacting two other cruise companies directly. Darian replied immediately, and walked me through the booking process. It couldn't have been easier to assess a few great options and to make a secure payment online. (The other two cruise companies were slower to respond.)
But the value of working with Darian isn't just sorting through different cruise companies; it's also that he helps you to gain the best experience from the cruise you select. For example, I chose Indochina Junk (Dragon Pearl), which was phenomenal, and Darian helped me get a top floor room with the best view looking out from the boat. Without Darian, I never would have thought to request such a room. Even better, Darian explained to the boat tour director and crew that a family member I was traveling with would be celebrating his birthday on our trip. The crew baked a cake for him, and everyone on our cruise (20 people total) celebrated together. It was extremely memorable and amazing! I couldn't have asked for better service from Darian, and I'm so thankful to have worked with him to plan my Halong Bay adventure.
