Amazing time aboard Hermes Cruise

We went on a 2-day, 1-night Hermes Cruise that was organized by Best Travel. Janet, our amazing staff member, made our magical journey. In addition to picking us up, the staff at our hotel assisted with moving our luggage.
There are just 18 rooms on the large, cozy ship, providing optimal comfort for all passengers.
For us, taking a kayak ride is the most beautiful hour.
Strongly recommended.

Wonderful time on the Hermes Cruise!

Great experience on the Hermes Cruise! Tommy, our tour manager, was wonderful! Jack of all trades: led the culinary demo, guided us through the sights, took photos for everyone, answered all of our concerns, and made sure everyone's requirements were met. The suits were quite comfortable, and the trips we took were both enjoyable and well-organized!

Does the price include being picked up and returned from Hanoi and what time fo we get back to Hanoi as we have a flight booked at 1600hr. Thank you

@Stephen Hargreaves:

The price is seperated cabin price and transfer so that you can make decision on your own. For the flight depart at 16:00 am you will need a private transfer to go direct to the airport, the price will depend how many person will go
