We really had an excellent service led by Mr Kong and his team. He can speak English very well so we don't have any problem to communicate. Other than they served good food inboard for lunch and also sunset party. We also got to see Surprising Cave and then followed by Bamboo Boat. Some of our group member chose to go kayaking. All went well for us and timing is so perfect. We reached Hanoi safely after 3 hours driving from Halong. We actually quite surprised with the shuttle van provided by the company because it is comfortable. We also can recharged mobile phone as it has USB port attached at the back of every seat. MR Kong and his team really puttheir effort to ensure all of us inboard get to our hotels safely. It was a very exciting day at Halong Bay. Very high recommended tour for those who want to visit the beautiful nature of Halong Bay.

If you are looking for a relaxing day trip to Halong Bay, this is the one for you. My wife and I had a great trip there. The whole itinerary is well arranged and everything is on schedule. Mr Hung, our tour guide, who describes himself very talkative :), is very friendly and provided a lot of information about Vietnam along the way. These are good information for me to understand the country and culture better. It was a good experience especially for those first-time visitors to the country like me. Overall, it is a great trip and the scenery is fascinating. Highly recommended.
