What people are saying about Northern Vietnam

The tour was excellent. The food was excellent. They also showed us the Pearl farm which was not mentioned in the itinerary. The room is neat and clean. The guide was good. The only negative that I can think of is the planning for viewing the sunrise. By the time they moved the boat from where we could see the sun the sun was already above the horizon. Basically we missed the sunrise in spite of waking up early and waiting on top. Thank Ding Dong our guide..

It’s our first time in Vietnam and booking this cruise was the best decision ever. Was a little bit disappointed at first coz the boat I initially book was full but then the staff of the local partner guide was able to compensate by giving us free limo pick up. During our cruise, the staff were amazing. Food was great and the experience was superb. Thank u to all for a great job. Kudos to the staff.

A wonderful trip and an absolute must when visiting Vietnam. The rooms in the boat were spacious and luxurious compared to hostels! Friendly and helpful staff and plenty of food. Great activities aided in the enjoyment and appreciation of the beautiful landscapes. Highly highly recommend this trip, this is the best thing we have done in a long time!

We had a really good time on board. All the staff was so friendly and helpful and our guide was really professional and well-informed. The food was good and we were so thankful that our special wishes were fulfilled completely (no meat, no seafood, no eggs, no onions ;)). The cocktails were delicious! Everything was clean and comfy. Thank you again!

We loved our experience! I highly recommend this cruise to anyone and everyone.
