Arrow was an amazing tour guide, very knowledgeable and informative of Halong Bay and Vietnam in general. He took great care of us! We had a fantastic time on the cruise, the scenery, trips to the different islands and food were all incredible, we didn’t want to leave! 11/10 for this tour :)

Very pleasant stay. We were only a group of eight. The cruise was clean with friendly and welcoming staff. Canoeing was a top experience for me - could be even longer (lasted 30 min.) Great food with lovely presentation:-)

Nice trips Nice tour by guide Mr Hien. He was very friendly and helpful and very good English. I really enjoyed my trip with my friend in Halong bay. The foods were very delicious and plentiful. The cabin was clean and comfortable. I would recommend to my friends

Went for the 3 day option at Halong, rooms were nice and comfy, hot water for shower is hot. Open the balcony door and you can have a view of the bay, sunset is especially charming! Very peaceful and tranquil. Our guide was Dung, whom picked us up at the meetup point and from there we took a bus ride to the bay. Very friendly and accomodating to our needs! He is the kind of guide that will look out for everyone and ensure we are having a good time! Speaks decent english as well! Do request for him if you do book a tour here!

Arrow our guide for Halong Bay has a great sense of humour and has a good command of English. Knowledgeable of area and very helpful. Take good care of the group well. Arrow used to be a chef at his family business of his hometown. With a degree in tourism, he has a great future. Would definitely recommend him.
