This cruise with Rosa Boutique Cruises was very great. Our guide Trung was very nice, humorous and was very good at creating relations within the group by letting us share something about ourselves to the group and generally invite us to do a lot of activities together. It was amazing to wake up between all the limestones and experiencing kajakking for the first time between these limestones. The trip to the cave was beautiful too and Trung had a lot of knowledge about the cave that he shared with us! The service on the boat was very good with lots of good food and the room was very nice too.

The Halong bay cruise was a really good experience, our pick up , transfer, & guide was excellent. The Food was also good, however the drinks were extremely over priced! The itinerary was very rushed, particularly the pearl farm visit, far to over commercialised. The whole experience with so many boats doing the same thing runs the risk of over exploiting the area with tourists.

The trip was very organised and everything ran on time! The staff on the boat worked very hard to meet everyone’s needs and food was a plenty! Activities were very good! The boats interior was beginning to look a bit tired, could do with a makeover!!
