Our tour guide, Victor, was great and spoke very good English. The tour over all was amazing for the price paid. Be careful if your booking through booking.com for a 2 night stay though, as they tried to put us in a shack for a night in cat ba island in the middle of no where. Luckily we swapped with another couple but they can’t of realised the hotel which was on offer with amazing views!! See photographs attached!But do ask before turning up! We had spring roll cooking classes, the food was amazing - so much of it on the boat!!! And karaoke was good fun too. The trips to the caves, monkey island, cycling through cat ba, was all amazing. Over all a great experience and would recommend !!

This boat is mid range and I did not expect too much, but it surprised me by the enthusiast of tourguide and crew they took good care of everything for me. Such as, came to my room and instructed on how to use right mode of airconditioner, friendly chatting with me about normal social affairs. Definitely, highly recommend Halong Dragon cruise to everyone who are looking for the boat trip to discover the Halong bay.
