      Although this day involved a lot of car travel, the time we had at Halong Bay was worth the effort. Mr Dang gave us lots of information about Vietnam and the rural lives of the Vietnamese people. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

      We chose the company as the quality reviews and the tour was wonderful. Windy let us choose wheather to join 4 hours or 6 hours tour and his recommendation of 6 hours was really great. Halong Bay is too beautiful to be discover in just a short trip after the 4 hours drive from Hanoi. Our tour guide was really caring and informative.
