wonderful experience. I highly recommend. the boat and the staff are excellent and allow you to take full advantage of your few days in the bay by taking magnificent photos. a moment out of time. cons: Hanoi shuttle <> ha long = 2 places only when there were 2 of us with 2 children. no sails hoisted, lack of clarity in the information given by the organizer on the day's activities and when will we be back on the boat. price of drinks on board too high (Parisian prices!)
