- The highlight of the trip is taking people to less touristy areas and cruise more to see the best parts of Ha Long Bay - Lan Ha bay.
- The place where we anchor is also very peaceful; not at the common place where hundreds of boats gather there.
- The trips can be flexibly changed due to customer’s demands, physical conditions and the tide levels (weather as well). Please do not hesitate to email us to customize your holiday.
- The prices: depending on your group size because we only organize private tours, no open tours. For example, if you are two people, the whole boat will be just for two of you, no other tourists. More people are with you, the price will be cheaper. Please tell us your group size then we will send you the cost.
- If you have any food restrictions or allergies, please let us know when you book the tours.
- Recommendations: It is good to combine Ha Long tour withNinh Binhtours. 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.
