Everything is good, and your response is quick

The driver who came to pick us up didn't show in the correct time, even we were 10 mins earlier in the lobby.

We very much enjoyed the Cruise and the service from BestPrice Vietnam. The Crew were fantastic in each and every part of the Cruise. We were so happy with the balance of free time and structured activities that we were able to have an amazing time both inside and outside of the boa

It was a lovely cruise in a beautiful location.

Everything was rushed. Wished we had more time in the caves & with the floating village. Plus it's alot of money for a 1 day cruise. The brochure says its 2 days but its really 1 day because we had to check out at 9am. The boat needs some updating.

Some Indian vegetarian options would have been good.
It was an awesome cruise and we had a memorable experience.

Not all staff were proficient in English. Having said that, they were able to get hold of someone else to help us out

Good organised entertainment, although staff were pushy to attend activities and no staff gave information about the history and culture of the halong bay which was upsetting

Not enough food served for vegetarians and meals came out much later than the meat eaters meals

We love the cruise and we enjoyed the kayaking and cycling activities. We were lucky as the weather permitted us to do the kayaking, We heard on some days, (when the water gets too choppy), the boat cannot get to the Cat Bha island so they have to change the itinerary. The food was excellent, fresh seafood and vietnamese dishes.
Prompt email replies and good service

We informed the staff 3 times that we do not eat pork and they forgot and served us bacon and pork sausages for breakfast. But they quickly changed the menu for us, we were not too upset about it.
