Our group of 7 had a private boat trip, 2 days/1 night on Halong Bay. Eco Friendly did a great job of arranging all the transportation for us from Hanoi, although word of warning, it does take a while and requires a taxi, speed boat, and shuttle bus to get to the boat. Everything was on time and didn't require... More

Had a lovely time. Logistic organisation from Hanoi return was fantastic. Halong Bay is just beautiful. Kayaking was fab too. The boat itself did let the trip down a little. It could have been cleaner and our guide could have been more engaged and informative. For the amount paid for a 3 day trip for a private charter, we expected... More

We took a 2 day, 1 night trip with eco friendly. The total cost was about £400 including transfer from halong bay (which was the same cost as our return flights from London to Vietnam). We were picked up promptly at 6.15 from Hanoi. The drive was just under 2 hours and we then got the ferry from Haiphong to... More

We took a private boat for 3 days, went through the Ha- Long -Bay and the area. The boat was great: clean, comfortable with a great deck to enjoy the view. The rooms are perfect - simple but have all you need. The crew was very friendly always smiling and ready to help. Highly recommend the company.

For us (a couple) the number 1 priority was the peacefulness of having our own space. We heard that Eco-Friendly do charter boats, and it sounded perfect. Well - it was perfect! We were staying in Hanoi. I'll say right up front the cost of everything: - personal driver from hotel to the ferry (early morning Saturday) - ferry to... More

Have used Ecofriendly for two previous trips to Halong Bay and were very, very happy with their services! On this trip we decided to use Mr. Ba to plan our trip to the Mekong River. Once again, he managed to plan a most rememberable trip free from any problems. It's important to mention that Mr. Ba used a local guide... More

We had a wonderful experience with EcoFriendly in January 2017. Their customer service is some of the best I have ever received in my travels, from start to finish. All of their trips are private and customized based on the number of people. The process of securing various quotes from Ba by email while we were still in the US... More

We did a 1 day tour of Halong Bay with EcoFriendly, but was definitely a highlight of our trip. They were super organised in planning out the logistics, as it's a little complicated getting to CatBa Island. Once we were on the boat we had an incredible time! The views on the boat were incredible, and they took us to... More

Amazing sights, probably one of the best places I have ever seen. The boat are good but very rudimentary, it is not a cruise. The 2days/1night is rather a 1 day/1night since you start at 12am and you are back at 11am the next day. (I believe all tours does that to avoid losing a day. Guide speaking decent english,... More

Dear Mr. Johnathan S, Thank you very much for your feedback. That is very important for us to improve our services. We just want to clarify 1 thing: our boat trips start at 11 AM (can be earlier some times) and this is written clearly in the itinerary. You did not book car for the transportation with us and you...
