The crew is very nice and really tries to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms are good standard for a boat with private bath and you have a good view from all cabins. Our tour guide Minh was one of the best we had in Vietnam!

The whole crew were really amazing but I cannot rave enough about our tour guide Sunny. Sunny is one of the nicest people I have ever met and genuinely wanted everyone on the trip to feel comfortable and have a good time. We had an amazing time hanging out with him and hope to see him again on our next trip to Vietnam.

First and foremost, our guide Sunny went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and felt included. He really is one of the sweetest guys Ive met in Vietnam.

Our boat was immaculate in every way- very comfortable cabins, fantastic bar, great deck for lounging and the food was incredible! Not to mention the rest of the crew who were very friendly. Mr. Hue made us an amazing passion fruit daiquiri at happy hour and the rice wine was some of the nicest Ive had in Nam.

The only criticism I have is that I would have liked to spend a bit more time kayaking and visiting floating villages but we only spent one night so perhaps do two nights if thats your thing.

Overall, the value for money was great, especially considering the reports Ive heard from other travelers. Could not recommend more!

The shuttle bus is nice, pretty, clean and spacious, also the luggage is travelling with you,but has the best place in the front.
Road is a bit long time and some of its parts are damaged, that is why speed is not that fast.
first impression of the boat is nice, cabin is big and clean. Unexpected amount and quality of the amenities, and as everywhere in Vietnam - special slippers.
the f&b part is a little tricky, the quality and choice of food is good,but there are no drinks included, but the price is adequate, and during the Happy hour you can get 2 nice Long Island ice tea for about 6 us dollars.
The most amazing is entertainment - walking up the Titop mountain, kayaking( under the rocks, and inside the cave), cooking class and hiking in surprising cave,all is absolutely amazing. But it is not very easy for people who are not making exercises every morning( just like us)
The great words we would like to dedicate to our guide, Man) he is modest professional, who is trying his best to make his guests, friends and family happy, everywhere he was with us,always interested in conversation, always trying to help, always in jokingly and polite manner. One more thank for him for our stuff, which has been forgotten in the bus, and was given back personally by him after 10 minutes from our panic)
