Excellent and friendly staff
Review of: Adventure to Cat Ba and Lan Ha Bay 3 days 2 nights
Hellen was since the first contact so professional and friendly. She helped me with the booking of a bus from Ba Be Lake to Hanoi. Also I booked 3 day in Halong Bay, everything was perfect. It just was a couple of issues during the tour, but the agency does not have any responsibility. Afterwards I booked a bus to Phong Nha. Everything is going perfect with this agency

Travel, trekking and trying out the local cuisine
Review of: Adventure to Cat Ba and Lan Ha Bay 3 days 2 nights
We booked a private tour with Mr Linh's following recommendations from previous visitors (who went trekking in Ba Be National Park). This did not disappoint.
Our guide, Loi, was really friendly, adventurous and kept us entertained and enthused on our treks and time on the boat.
We started with a drive from Hanoi, and then onto the afternoons 8km trek across the national park to Viet Hai village - a hard but rewarding trek, with good walking shoes and a daypack essential
...Read More! Our guide helped us to understand the local wildlife. We stayed overnight in Viet Hai Village bungalows (reviewed separately) which offered a basic but comfortable accommodation and a nice dinner (our luggage arrived by boat later in the afternoon). Day 2 was a shorter trek up to view the bays, enjoyable despite the difficult terrain and misty weather, we cycles too the harbour to meet the wooden junk boat. The junk was clean and comfortable with a small cabin and basic bathroom. We had a wonderful lunch followed by a busy afternoon of kayaking and swimming in the bay. Another fantastic seafood dinner followed, and we slept comfortably. Day 3 included a visit to a local floating village fish farm, a trek on monkey island (beware hungry monkeys on arrival), and another lovely lunch before driving back to Hanoi.
We had a brilliant time with lots of unforgettable experiences, our guide Loi really helped us to understands and enjoy North Vietnam! Read Less

Highly recommended!!
Review of: Adventure to Cat Ba and Lan Ha Bay 3 days 2 nights
I took the 3D-2N Cat Ba National Park trip and would recommend this company. The trip was great value for money and I was able to customise it completely.

Helen assisted me and was absolutely amazing - she was so helpful and responsive both before and during my trip even with lots of requests. I did 2 days of trekking in the Cat Ba National Park including walking up Navy Peak - the scenery is incredible and it’s so peaceful (wear proper hiking boots if you’re c

I stayed in Viet Hai village at a bungalow which I would also really recommend - the staff there were so nice and friendly and the setting is beautiful. I had great vegetarian food the whole time as well.

I would really recommend this company and especially Helen for all her amazing work :) Read Less

Incredible 3 day tour of Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba island
Review of: Adventure to Cat Ba and Lan Ha Bay 3 days 2 nights
I would say this is a must do if you are traveling in the north of Vietnam. Our tour took us to the lest touristic but most beautiful parts of the area. We stayed at an amazing fishing village. We had a private bout take us through la han bay, which is way less crowded and every bit as beautiful as Ha Long bay. Cat Ba island and Monkey island were among the most picturesque and charming places I have ever been. Our guide, Tu, was very sweet, informative, and accommodating.

...Read More One small note: please be advised, if you do the tour we did, you will need to back a small bag for 3 days, that you can carry on a hilly 4 hour hike. We were not aware of this and had to lock up our larger luggage at our guide's house. It was a minor inconvenience but it worked out fine. Read Less

Second part of the t
