Contratamos un tour por la Bahía de Halong por 3 días y 2 noches. Pagamos un porcentaje por adelantado y el resto 1 día antes del zarpe directamente a la agente en nuestro hotel. Recomiendo 100% esta agencia. Cumplió cabalmente con lo prometido. Destaco la excelente atención de la agente, Nora… More

The rest of the is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed out trip very much. We would recommend you to our friends in case any of them ask about Vietnam.

Although they asked if anyone is vegetarian, they did not expect halal food requirement. I must say, they tried their best to provide alternatives. But it would be better if they were prepared for such requirement.

The highlight of this tour was the service of staffs on the cruise. They were very nice, friendly and dependable, especially the managers of each day.

Some staff need more skill for English. In addition, the room and facility looked old a little bit although they supposed to be new one in cruises of the bay.

Food was great, cabin very comfortable, overall a great experience

Second day activities were a little in a rush, not a lot of time to leave cabin after getting back from Fishing Village

Overall, everything was 10+ on rating. The only thing I would recommend attention on is the beds need replaced and the exterior of the boat needs a little paint. But honestly the service and meals made up for everything, they were perfect!!! We had the best experience, words cannot express the fun we… More

If we were to rate our Starlight Cruise all categories would be scored 10. It was absolutely super. Our trip ran smoothly from our pick up at the hotel to our fabulous cruise. The staff were very accommodating on the cruise and provided us with excellent vegetarian meals as requested.

Very well planned cruise

Only issue was not enough hot water for Jacuzzi or even bath. Also the room A/C did not heat.

we had a really nice and pleasant stay at the starlight cruise

nothing to complain beside the guide of the second day was a bit unfriendly.

The cabin was very good, except the mattress was very hard. I advised the tour guide but nothing was done about it, despite being told they would do something about it.
The breakfasts were very very basic. Some fatty pieces of bacon with overcooked eggs was one option, certainly not up to even a 3 star… More
