We had a fantastic time on the Maya cruise ship, the staff were really enthusiastic and friendly and would not hesitate to help us when we needed assistance. The activities were also great, they suggested that we get up early to go to the caves and avoid the crowds which was a good advice as when we were leaving the caves all of the other boats had to wait in line. Our two tour guides Chung and Tommy were some of the nicest people we met on our whole trip, their English was very good, in particular Tommy and their knowledge of the area was remarkable. Definitely a company worth booking with, at an affordable price!

Had a very nice bike tour with our guide named David of Cat Ba island on the Maya cruise (3 days 2 nights total tour). We visited a nice local village and experienced some local drinks (snake juice is great). After we visited the village we did a short hike to a cool cave, thanks David!

WOW, this trip was wonderful. From the moment our guide Soya (hope I spelt it right), picked us up in the luxury van, to the end of the trip we were captivated. Our rooms were so very comfortable and we slept soundly. The lunch and dinners onboard were scrumptious and well decorated, drop dead gorgeous. Breakfast was just basic but still ok. Kayaking was magic and swimming off the pontoon was very refreshing. Our second day allowed us to take in another day of kayaking. Our guide was great, top points to David, he showed us so much on Cat Ba island, but I couldn't drink the snake rice wine, but had a sip of the honey rice wine, it sure packs a burn on the lips. The boat crew that took us to the pontoon, and later cooked us a meal were also so very good. This experience is one that should not be missed. Great 3 days 2 nights.

We went for the 3day/2night cruise with Maya cruises. It was beautiful and the scenery was great! Food was magnificent, with local seafood. First day we went kayaking, we found an remote bay with an old tempel and we were all by ourselfs. Then we did swimmimg before we went back to the ship for dinner and drinks. Second say we were picked up by a smaller boat and brought to a village on Cat Ba island, you can choose between bike and car. Went for the homestay and a batcave and tasted the local drinks. Our guide David, followes us all day and told about the community and history of the village. Afterwards an splended lunch on the ship before kayak in between the fishfarms og small islands. Laste thing of the minicruis was swimming in one of the white beaches in the bay. Water was warm and we had the beach all to out selfes. Later on, 5 course dinner and drinks onboars the main vessel. Third day we went through the caves and had good lunch onboard again before going back to Hanoi. Wery nice and clean onboard, fine cabins og very friendly crew. Good english!
