Notes:

– The place where we anchor is also very peaceful; no other boats close nearby; not like Ha Long bay- hundreds of boats parking at the same place.

– The trips can be flexibly changed due to customer’s demands, physical conditions and the tide levels (weather as well).

 The prices depend on how many people are going with you; because we only organize private tours. Please tell us your group size then we will send you the cost.

Recommendations: It is good to combine Ha Long tour with Ninh Binh and Mai Chau tours. If you going further south, you can take flight  to Da Nang or Ho Chi Minh from Hai Phong instead of Hanoi to save your money and time.
