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

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

It has been a pleasure dealing with . She has at all times been most attentive to our queries and always willing to help. We had an excellent and most memorable cruise on Halong Bay.

The only negative comment is that the Visa we arranged through BPV still ended up costing us the same amount of money at the airport as if we hadnt arranged through the travel agent.

We had a wonderful trip on the Valentine Cruise. The staff were great, and everything was well organised.
Would we contact you again, YES!

The only problem we found, was our driver could not communicate with us. He was otherwise very safety conscious.
