I thoroughly enjoyed this trip! Hana, the tour organiser, Nam, our tour guide and the team onboard couldn’t do enough for us. We are vegetarian and they provided so many tasty options at each meal - we were very satisfied with the food options available! The boat was kept clean at all times. The team onboard worked extremely hard to ensure we had an enjoyable and comfortable stay. The bedrooms were well equipped with shampoo, shower gel, towels, hairdryer, flip flops and glass water bottles and there was a water tank on board to refill water bottles. This was a fun packed trip which was also very relaxing. We got to get involved with many activities such as kayaking, spending time at nearby beaches, visiting a cave and squid fishing. All in all an amazing stay and would definitely go again!!

We loved our Cruise with Athena! We took the trip for our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it so special and memorable. The cave activity was wonderful too and we went at the perfect time so it wasn’t too crowded. The rooms were stylish and comfortable with incredible views of Halong Bay. The food was also buffet which is my favourite way to eat! All we wish is that we could have done more nights on board! Thank you all, we won’t forget our time on Athena.

It was a vey good tour,definitelly reccomend it. Worth the money. Well organized, guide was very nice,good english,a little stronger accent but possible to understand. The only dissapointment was the swimming because the beach was very dirty (specially the watter) and crowded, but everything else was amazing,cruising in Halong Bay at sunset wow so much fun! Thanks!

Recomiendo a todo el mundo este barco con esta empresa. 100% satisfecho. El guía, el barco, las actividades, la ruta por la bahía, todo perfecto. Hana (de Get Your Guide) muy pendiente de mi en todo momento por wasap (recogida en el hotel, recordarme horarios y actividades, preguntar si todo va bien...). Muy contento con Renea Cruises y con Get Your Guide.

The view Ha Long bay and sea food were amaging . And also kayak was exciting. Thank you for giving me a special experience!
