What people are saying about Northern Vietnam

The car drive from Hanoi to Ha along Bay was quite lengthy, but definitely worth it!! As soon as we arrived, we boarded the boat and had a generous lunch with a vegetarian option. It was very delicious! Then we took off and drove about one hour to get to our first attraction: a cave with stalagmites and stalactites. Ha Long Bau is as stunning as the pictures in the internet and I would make sure to see it if you can. During our second activity we had the chance to paddle a Kajak through a cave and past a few beautiful islands. This was our favourite part of the tour. Afterwards we we offered a few snacks, such as fruit and biscuits. It was an amazing day overall! Before you go, you should know though, that only a very small water bottle is included in the price. There is the option to pay for drinks on the boat, but you can also bring your one. However, single use plastic bottles are not allowed.

Great experience around local Villages. The local Guide was exceptional: adapted her way of explaining the history and tradition to what we were interested in. Fantastic!

We recommend! It is true that the bus takes 2.5 hours there and back, but it is an unforgettable result! Also great travel companion!

From what we have heard, this company is better than others to run this tour. We did not have any problem

We loved the excursion, the organization was top notch as was the guide. We can only recommend.
