Had an amazing trip around halong bay on renea cruise boat for 2 days one night, the food was really fresh and tasty, the trip was very well organized with kayaking and swimming on the beach (which was very private and peaceful) and everyone was very helpful and friendly especially our tour guide Nam who had brilliant English. really enjoyed the whole trip and the bus transfer was luxurious with brilliant air con and lovely bus driver would definitely recommend!

Ha Long Bay is a must-visit in Vietnam. In our case, we went on a 2-day trip, with overnight aboard a small cruise ship. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. To regret the impossibility of enjoying the entirety of one of the beaches for reasons unrelated to the tour.

Enjoyed the tour. Robert has been very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodative. We had a lovely seafood lunch, kayaking for 45mins was just the right amount of time and visiting the caves has been eye opening

A trip of a lifetime. I couldn’t recommend it more. The scenery, the staff, the hospitality and food were all exceptional.

We were treated like royalty. Everything is wonderful !
