Good: "From the time our guide picked us up at the hotel until he dropped us off, we were well taken cared of. I liked the size of the Calypso Cruiser. It was the right number of guests and it wasn't crowded. Food was decent but the guys in the group complained about quantity of the food. =) The trip to the cave on the first day was amazing. We chose to kayak the next day and we wish we had more time to explore. "

Good: "We did the overnight cruise, as there is so much to see and it takes a couple of hours to travel to Halong Bay I would suggest you do the two night cruise."
