Amazing experience of the Halong Bay without the crowds View on TripAdvisor Very kind and attentive staff on our private boat (family of 2 adults and 3 kids aged 10, 8 and 3.5). The views were breathtaking, we went kayaking in grottos and cycling to a small village called Viet Ha. Meals were very good and varied, the bedding is confortable. Our guide, Tien, was super nice, and the cook and boat captain were adorable, so thoughtful!

The Best Ha Long Bay tour ever! View on TripAdvisor We chose to book the 3 days 2 nights cruise to Halong Bay area with 1 nights on the boat and 1 night on Cat Ba Island in order to see some of the less crowded areas and spend more of this portion of our trip on site not just in transit. As this was our first trip to Vietnam, we contacted a few companies to help us arrange the details including getting to Cat Ba from Hanoi and then on to Ninh Binh afterwards. We chose Cat Ba Du Ky Travel because they tailored a trip for our specific needs. We were picked up at our hotel driven to Ben Beo. Once onboard our guide Tien and the crew were professional as well as helpful and friendly. Meals were some of the best we had over the course of our two week trip to Vietnam. We were able to get to less visited areas and had access to quieter anchorages at night. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a personalized vacation.
