Excellent - Mr.Nick Black
Anna was fantastic to work with and made everything as easy as pie

It was amazing to deal with Anna when she made everything very simple for us. Anna even went out of her way to assist my wife in organizing a special Father's Day meal for me with the cruise team. Thank you once more, Anna, for all of your assistance.

One of the best trip in my life

Just returned home after the trip. It was nice to enjoy the view of Halong Bay and took pictures and forget about our normal life.

Great service

Tery performed a fantastic job. He was really nice and well-informed. It was a fascinating journey to the floating fishing town. We gained a lot of knowledge about the native way of life. Definitely a good investment.

Ask a Question

Hello. Are snorkeling gear included in your services? Can we also expect a coral viewing experience? Additionally, will there be food offered on the boat after 8.30 PM? We're bringing along 3 children, with 2 of them being 4 years old. I'm inquiring about these details to explore potential backup plans.


The gear is not include in our servies, and coral viewing you should go to Nha Trang, Phu Quoc is better
