This was a great value trip! it has been one of our highlights in Southeast Asia. We did the 3 day two night option. We booked online and received quick responses to all of our questions. They where able to accomodate vegetarian and coeliac dietary requirements.

We enjoyed exploring the caves, kayaking and hanging out on the sundeck of the boat. Dem is a fantastic guide, who looked after everyone and made a point of making sure we avoided large crowds in the places we visited (even where the boat went in the bay). Dem also shared a lot of great local knowledge throughout the trip. The hotel at Cat Ba was amazing with a great view out to the bay.

A big thanks to all of the crew and especially to Dem for all of his hard work.

We were reccomended this trip by a friend who had done it with her family in January. It was a great reccomendation, for a good price there was comfortable bus to and from Halong so we could sit back and relax. The food was fantastic, great cocktails were also available on board. First day was kayaking and enjoying the scenery but the second day on Cat back was the highlight, we kayaked and swam from the boat, explored caves before swarms of tourists got there, biked and hiked. Really well out together tour. We had Dem as a tour guide and he was great, looked after us all and gave us really interesting information about Vietnamese culture, food, history and landscape.

We did the Sa Pa trekking and Ha Long bay cruise, both with Vega travel.

The Sa Pa trekking was brilliant. We had a very nice group and an excellent tourguide (Tu): his English was fluent and had some nice discussions on the political systems in Vietnam, football and life in general.

I will never forget the homestay. Dinner with the family was great and also drinking (a lot of) rice wine with the father of the family was so much fun. After a few drinks we ended up singing several songs on the guitar.

The trek itself was very nice, and not as easy as most trails in this region (18km first day and 10km second day). The nighttrain to and from Sa Pa is not really great, but it's the best there is and there is no way to avoid it.

The Ha Long bay tour was also great (kayaking and caves were nice and of course also the scenery), so thanks to our sweet tourguide Lala. With all the activities we were a bit ahead of most tourists, which made the experience better. Beds were good, also food was nice.

If you're planning to do these tours, I would recommend to have a day between Sa Pa and Ha Long, because the night train from Sa Pa is very exhausting. We were very glad we did.

We have a 1 Day tour to Halong Bay with a climb to Ti Top included, in a private boat.
Everything was perfect, the lunch, the organization .. our expectations were exceeded.
Mr. Thang, our guide, was excellent and made this trip even better.

When we were researching this trip hundreds of tours companies appeared so we really relied on trip advisor feedback. This time the feedback proved totally spot on! Vega Tours and our incredible gifted guide Duc got us away from the crowds and went out of his way to show us sites off the tourist route. The jungle trek, climbing vines and discovering hidden caves was a highlight. Duc is a very talented guide having the knowledge to explain rock formations and the ability to do magic tricks and yoga contortions! He really made the trip special so if you can get on his tour I would recommend it but overal the tour with Vega was great.
