We had a small group of 14 and our tour guide Kuong. The tour ran smoothly. The people on the tour are great fun and our guide in my opinion was very professional, automatically explained about surrounding areas, the rock formation, and he could answer any kinds of question which you pose to him. We ran far away from the... More

We did today the day tour with Cat Ba Ventures which was great. The trip happened exactly as was explained to us when we purchased it (general itinerary, swimming and kayaking). The food was great (chicken, shrimps, squid, rice, potatoes, etc) with special drinks like beer that can be purchased on board for a decent price. The guide, Duc in... More

I cannot recommend Cat Ba Ventures highly enough: Mr Tung was very clear & prompt with emails when we were planning our trip. He sent a car to pick us up in Hanoi & every step went according to plan! As for our 3 day trip of Lan Ha & Ha Long bays: fantastic! Our young guide, Lun, was so... More

The guides for this tour company are friendly locals with a good level of English. The boat trip with kayaking and swimming stops was fun and the lunch on the boat was delicious. For 28 USD per person it was also great value.

Our guide was '' Power " did a really great job. We kept to less touristy areas of the bays which was spectacular , when we went swimming it was only... More

The hostels all seem to offer similar tours as cat ba ventures but cat ba ventures is more expensive. I assume this is because you get an english-speaking guide (and free water, but i assume that doesnt explain the 10 dollar difference!). The trek was fun and adventurous at times, climbing over the limestone. However, our guide was rather miserable... More
