The Best Ha Long Tour operator View on TripAdvisor I could go super into detail of everything we did but it would actually take so much time I don't even want to. These guys were great. Absolutely 0 complaints about anything... and for the price... wow.They organized everything and prepaid for tickets for anything we needed to have tickets for and fed us the whole way. We will be booking them next time and recommending them to anyone we meet.

Great experience View on TripAdvisor My husband and I rented a house boat for one night in Halong Bay. The day started out with lunch on the boat and our own private guide Tien. We had the boat to ourselves (except for the cook and captain). Everyone was so nice and friendly. We went kayaking and visited a fish farm. Would highly recommend this company.
