    This was an exceptional tour to take part in! The crew and tour guide were unbelievably accommodating and the side tours from the ship were so much fun! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family next time they visit Vietnam 🤙

    Pick up from hotel was on time. The tour bus was very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and organized. There was a rest stop at a Pearl factory before arriving at the ferry terminal but there was no hard sell. The mid-sized boat we took was clean and the lunch provided was delicious. The kayaking/bamboo boat activity was very controlled and therefore safe for families. The cave hiking is also very nice and interesting. The hike to the top of Ti Top island was moderately challenging and the view at the top was a worthy reward. All of this with a US$60/person price tag is incredible. I highly recommend this company and this tour.

    I booked the 2-day Ha Long Bay tour and had an excellent experience. They arrange a pick-up to your hotel in Hanoi and drop you off in the city the next day. The activities were all very interesting: kayaking and exploring caves in the majestic Ha Long Bay. All meals are included, and they were very tasty as well. You spend the night on the boat, and the accomodation had top notch amenities: private shower and bathroom with running water (cold and hot), mini-fridge, double bed, electricity and air conditioning.

    Overall I would recommend this tour to anyone staying in Hanoi. The value is incredible given the quality of the tour and the amenities.

    We just finished this cruise. What a trea it was. They picked us up from our hotel in Hanoi and took us to Ha long bay. The boat and room were even better than the pictures. The staff was the best… Arrow was our favorite. Always helpful. See our Instagram @weliketovacation for more

    A breath taking experience! Our guide Huy was incredibly kind and knowledgeable about Ha Long Bay. We loved cruising through the islands and learning about the culture. We kayaked, hiked and biked on our trip. We did not want to leave! We were a little concerned because the day before the trip we were told our boat was not going out but we could either cancel or pay an extra $90 usd/ person to take another boat. That didn’t really seem fair considering we got the email the day before we were meant to depart but we just paid the extra and it all worked out.

    Any season is great.

    The food served enroute is amazing.

    Hien was an amazing tour guide - Ha Long Bay is beautiful! It is a long trip for one day but well worth it. We can’t speak highly enough of Hien and this tour.

    My wife and I travelled to Cao Bang region with Vietnam Top Trading and Travel Company. The trip was an excellent blend of scenery, history, and cultural immersion. Regarding the scenery: Most of the travel is through the limestone mountains. They are simply beautiful, particularly when sprinkled with terraced rice farms and the like. Much of the drive is through twisting mountainous road providing a variied landscape around each bend. The waterfall at the border is the 4th largest in the world and has multiple layered drops which are unlike anything I have seen. The Ba Be National Park was traveled across on the last day and is simply beautiful. I took a dip and that alone was worth the price of admission.Regarding the village experience: Both villages were very welcoming and scenically situated. One community, consisting of 40 or so homes, was totally geared to producing incense. The entire product is manufactured here which I found quite interesting. Both homestays were somewhat rustic, but not to the extreme. The food was excellent and sanitation was not a concern. Bathroom facilities were western toilets. The opportunity to stay in an ethnic Vietnamese rural village was quite extraordinary. The history of the border between China and Vietnam has been a flash point for conflict between 1 AD and 1988. The guide took us to some of these sites and explained their historic significance. I came away with a much better understanding of the French and American wars of 1946-1975 as well as the Cambodian and Chinese war of 1978-1979. Our guide, Luan, was excellent- well organized, knowledgeable, sociable, prompt, and reliable. He had a great sense of humor as well. Since a lot of time is spent in the car, it was a great opportunity to chat about life in Vietnam. A word about the driver--- this is a long trip along mountainous winding roads with the usual Vietnamese road rules (none). A bad driver could ruin the trip. Our driver, Trong, was great. I only looked at the road to see the sights and never once got a case of white knuckles. Remarkable. So for us the trip exceeded our high expectations. One caveat however. A lot of time is spent driving to get to these great destinations. It is made enjoyable by the guides banter and the scenery. For those who tend towards car sickness and do not like long trips, this excursion may not be for you.

    A little late to review my single-day Halong Bay cruise tour, but this was one of the best experiences I had. You get one meal provided and drinks/snacks are not included so be prepared with your own cash.

    The organizers Anthony and another man who I can only remember by his nickname "Tiger Woods" were beyond accommodating to all guests and never stopped pouring efforts to keep us all entertained and comfortable.
    Although Halong Bay is a bit of a robotic tourist hot-spot, this tour allows you to see all the attractions offered. All the staff is incredibly hardworking, and as a tourist simply enjoying the experience; I too was extremely fatigued by the end and cannot imagine how tired the organizers were since they always kept a positive attitude. I personally believe they should be charging more for their efforts.

    They should get our 5 star but the private pickup (really expensive) was done with an unfriendly driver, old shabby car. At one point the driver stopped for toilets and drove away without giving any additional instruction. We found the car parked somewhere, locked with our coats inside. It was very cold and windy. We went to a building next to the toilets where they told us that the driver went to drink coffee somewhere...
    We do recommend the cruise, great boat, nice guide and staff, tasty food but better use their bus transportation than pay extra for a lousy experience.
