"Marvelous Ha Long Bay"

Two nights/three days on the Valentine on Ha Long Bay. There were moments we had to pinch ourselves to believe we were actually there, two unexpectedly sunny days gliding between the karst mountains. It may have been too busy at some of the trips away from the mothership, but all in all we could not… More

The tour was fantastic. One of the best activities we had in our stay in Vietnam. We really liked the junk, in good stay and really beautiful. The crew were really nice and helpful and the activities we carried out were really nice.

We loved the cabin, but we are not giving a 10 because the mattress was a little bit too soft, so not that confortable.

An excellent trip, beautiful boats, helpful, friendly staff who go out of their way to make your trip special, combined with stunning scenery and delicious meals.

Stick with the cocktails and beer during happy hour (They are excellent), unfortunately the wine is pretty expensive. Also beware of the tourist trap rest stop on the way to Halong Bay, overpriced stock, food and drink

Beautiful boat, we felt indulged and looked after whilst enjoying the activities and fabulous scenery (crew gave extra first aid assistance when I got nasty bruises slipping on steps).

No issues, once I insisted on the original itinerary!

Overall the service was good. Staff was friendly and responsive. Food was good.Cabins were good size and clean.

However, a little more effort could have been made regarding presentation. Junk is nicely called "valentine" with only 5 cabins. Extra effort should be made to make it "different".

Maybe a film on Vietnam or ha long bay would be good to watch whilst we pass time away. Some activity is required to pass… More
