We wanted to look at Halong bay but didn't want to do the overnight as the weather was coming in (storm Wipha) We went to a booking agency in Hanoi and they said the Arcady trip went out to a less visited part of the bay. Timing was great. As we were going out all the larger were coming in and visa versa on the way back. Lunch was was fantastic and the crew of the boat were very attentive. Henry the guide was very knowledgeable and ensured all safety procedures were pointed out particularly when canoeing. We expected Halong to be touristy and it was however the company, crew and Henry made it a very enjoyable and worthwhile trip.

Henry was the name of our tour guide and he is one of the nicest guides that I’ve met. He is happy and passionate about his tours and that results in a high quality experience. This tour for me was one of the best I’ve had throughout Asia and I fully recommend it to anybody who’s considering going to Halong Bay
