Gavin : Generally, we both enjoyed our trip. Everything was nearly perfect. We just want to have more free time to enjoy swimming and kayaking. These activities brought us lots of fun. Only one hour was not enough.
This is definitely the highlight of our Vietnam tours. We loved stunning scenery of Halong Bay, clean and tidy cabin, excellent food. The services were outstanding.
