Indochina Sails 2 days | 21/03/2023

As we made our travel arrangements, we also directly reserved a trip to Ha Long Bay with BestPrice Travel. We were aware that there were other options, but my husband decided on Indochina because of their reputation. Although the cost was not the lowest, I thought we got good value for our money and… More

With Thinh, a great and friendly person, we experienced two wonderful days. He clearly loved Ha Long Bay, and this made our visit all the more memorable.

While organizing a trip to Hanoi, specifically to Sapa and Halong Bay, I came across BestPrice Travel. Rick N. was the individual I dealt with, and he is Fantastic!

Sena Cruises 3 Days | 17/03/2023
Lovely trip

I previously travel to Bai Tu Long bay with Swan Team and had an excellent trip. So I chose Sena Cruises this time since it was managed by the same group, and I also want to avoid Halong since it was too touristy.

The boat is stunning - modern but with a classic flair. Our room was spacious and comfortable,… More

Jade Sails Luxury Cruise Full Day | 16/03/2023
Jade Sails did its job well

Although we had taken a two-night cruise with a different company five years ago, we only had limited time this time around, so we opted for a one-day cruise. I compared several companies and ultimately chose this one, and I'm glad I did. They had the longest time spent on the water compared to the… More

Paradise Elegance was wonderful as its name

My partner and I opted for the 2-night, 3-day cruise with Paradise Cruises, and it was an absolutely fantastic experience.

"Breathtaking and intimate"

On our roundtrip through Vietnam we decided to spend a few days in Halong Bay. A week before departure we received a message with a question whether we'd be fine with a transfer to the smallest boat in their fleet. We agreed, and boy, were we lucky. We ended up on an almost private cruise, having everything… More

"Perfect trip"

We did a 2 night 3 day cruise with Indochina sails and it was better than we could expect, our tour guide while there was Jax and he was great, extremely friendly and his service was second to none. The first day on boarding we were given a set menu lunch, the staff were very accommodating to my meat… More

"Not worth the money"

Ha Long bay is a must be in Vietnam, even if it is so touristy experience. We decided to go with overnight stay on boat to experience as much as possible. And the mission was accomplished however it is not worth its money. The bay is beautiful despite the pollution of the water. Floating rubbish and… More

Staff were excellent, compared and matched, they were treated as like royalty. The boat was beautiful and clean, loved the old style. Very well organized tour, felt like I saw a lot of Halong but also had plenty of time to relax. Food was okay.

"Passable, but that is about it..."

I did my research, just as you are doing now and across the internet on a number of outlets you find reviewers speaking very highly of Indochina Sails (enough so need mind you that the company is able to command a premium in cabin price versus the rest of the market – I booked on their website). I… More

"A luxurious 24 hours on board!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our day & overnight trip around Halong Bay on board the Valentine.
It was an excellent five berth boat - and our meals (lunch, dinner & breakfast) were all fabulous! Our cabin was well equipped with an en suite (shower & bath), and Eric and his team were first class.
An experience we would be very happy to repeat!

"Amazing trip in Ha Long Bay"

We had a wonderful experience about Indochina Sails. We stayed overnight and the accommodations were very nice and we toured the caves, had a cooking demonstration, did squid fishing and hiked up to a lovely look out point. The staff, especially Thoa, was very nice and they did everything to make our trip special. Would highly recommend this boat!

"Great 2 Day 1 Night Tour on Indochine Cruise"

Great cruise - really nice cabins and especially bathrooms. The sundeck is huge and perfect for a bit of tai chi in the morning. Friendly staff and super interesting activities. Would definitely recommend.
