This was exactly what we were hoping for: a perfectly organised cruise, with a great guide (Kien is knowledgeable, has a great sense of humour and was the perfect host throughout the whole cruise) and the perfect balance between fun activities and relax. They pick you up on a minibus, collect your luggage and make sure it’s on the boat once at the port, while you get to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee in their lounge (wifi included). On the bus, Kien entertained us giving us some interesting facts and figures about Vietnam, and its society. Once on the boat you get to do fun stuff like kayaking, squid fishing, spring rolls cooking class…on top of that, the whole staff was very attentive and food on board was great! Meals were much tastier than we expected. Highly recommended!
