Excellent - Mr. Michael Grande
Best day ever!

Very opulent and almost overstuffed with food, but everything was excellent!
The outdoors was fantastic, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of area for lounging both inside and outside.
It costs more than others, but the boat and the cuisine are probably to blame. Very worthwhile.

Excellent - Ms. Christina Perry

My partner and I would like to extend a special thank you to Devlin for his courteous, diligent, and especially excellent service.

I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic this particular experience with the Halong Catamaran is if you are visiting Halong Bay and are deciding between the various options available.

Excellent - Mr. Andrew Wellington

I am extremely happy that we selected this cruise line after doing a lot of research on which boat to take.
The cuisine was fantastic, the personnel was very welcoming, and the boat was immaculate. The activities were enjoyable, and I'd suggest this business and day trip to everyone! Thanks for a wonderful day!

Excellent - Ms. Gabriel Harington

What a lovely day trip to Halong Bay, where you spend the day on a boat after the bus picks you up from the hostel. Kayaking is an excellent way to explore the islands and even some caves.

Excellent - Ms. Amanda Trevizo

This was unbelievable! The crew, the experience, the food, the staff, and the pace were all perfect. I would absolutely recommend this tour to everyone I know. The communication was superb too, shoutout to Anna for being the best!!!
