Cat Ba Ventures provided us with an outstanding introduction to Halong Bay. Everything worked like clockwork (we had limited time so this was key) and in a short time we had an amazing experience. Our boat was very comfortable, our guide and captain very knowledgeable about the area. I can't wait to return!

Super tour into Halong bay. The guide spoke very well English and was in good tune about the groups wishes. We were fortunate to be only 18 on the boat that usually seats 25. Everything was spot on; the food, the activities, the boat. Highly recommended.

Apart from the weather which could not be changed (sadly it was a bit misty when we were there ). However it doesn't affect our experiences. Our funny guide Mr Qoung ( properly wrong pronunciation ) kept us Happy. Lunch on boat was great. The 2 hours kayaking was absolutely a highlight as part of the tour. Great floating villages...

We had a very nice day out on this day trip. When we reserved for our package we had left our money at the hotel but they let us reserve places anyway and they let us pay just before we left. When we were on the cruise our guide Hang was a very nice guy with a great sense of... More

We enjoyed our day trip with Cat Ba Ventures. They were professional and organised. The kayaking point was very busy so the guide changed the itinerary around so we can visit the caves when it was less crowded. The lunch was more than we could eat. Will definitely recommend them.

While on Cat Ba island for a few days I wanted to take a boat trip and found the perfect company. Every staff member was great, from the kayak guides to the chef. Both guides communicated with all of us so wonderfully and the food was fantastic.

We went with Cat Ba Ventures on the recommendation from the Rough Guides and really glad we did. We did a two day overnight boat trip which was brilliant, only eight people on our boat while the other boats we saw looked a lot bigger and crowded. They took us on some great kayaking tours of caves and lagoons and... More

We booked a 2 day 1 night boattrip trough the halongbay at cat ba ventures. We had email contact with them before the trip. Because they found no other people for the trip, we had a private ship for us two for 408$. If there would have been more people, it would have been cheaper. So we had a crew... More

We had a tight schedule to visit the Lan Ha and Halong bays as we stayed in Haïphong. Cat Ba ventures organized it perfectly, so we were able to take the last boat leaving Cat Ba to Haïphong. We had a perfect day: the boat is well equipped and big enough, nice team, double-kayak.
