We asked every agency around about their 1 day cruise to Halong Bay, and Cat Ba Local seemed to have the best option. They might be a bit more expensive than others (20$) but we were convinced their decision to go off the touristic path was worth it, and we were right. We had some amazing kayaking and visited isolated and super cool islands. Lunch was excellent too. They also arranged a night on a floating homestay for us, and the taxi back to Cat Ba.

We had the best 1 night 2 day halong bay and Lan Ha trip with our guide (and new friend) Linh. We spent the first day as part of a group exploring sea caves In Halong Bay in kayaks, overnight on a private boat in Lan Ha and the second day spent kayaking hidden lagoons and relaxing on our private boat. Linh is the best guide who takes you to all the best quiet spots, and will always make you smile and laugh. We really enjoyed spending our time with him whilst he pointed out the landmarks and explained everything to us. Highly reccomend this trip and Linh!!

We completed a 1-day kayak tour through Lan Ha Bay & Ha Long Bay and it was incredible- the sights were beautiful, kayaking was plentiful and we were able to roam wherever we wanted for 2 hours at a time, the lunch provided was delicious, and our guide, Duong, was great... especially given the price. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to explore the limestone formations. I would highly recommend using this company for tours, as they are a local company and really know the area inside out.

Linh and Jake went above and beyond and showed us an excellent and professional day through the Lan Ha Bay and the less touristy parts of Ha Long Bay on a combined boat and kayak tour. We even got to see private beaches and play a round of charades. An overall superb day! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for some fun and adventure!!

We were looking for a cheaper place to do a boat and kayak day, it was what we were expecting for! We checked on TripAdvisor for a place and we send a message on FB if they have still available place for the next day, the answer was very fast and in a good English!
We decided to go on the office and all the people were very friendly.
For the day trip, we were 10 people on the boat and we traveled around the Lan Ha Bay, have a break for kayak on the sea and on the cave with our guide called Linh, very funny guide and he Speak good English! We through also the Ha long Bay. Lan Ha Bay was very beautiful and quiet place, not much people! We did 2 times kayak and one chill time where you could jump on the boat or swimming and do kayaking again.
For only 20$ you could spend a very good day, with a very good meal for the lunch and very good view point and kayak day!
Honestly, for the price and for our day, it was a really good experience
At the end of the day, we all ate with Linh on a good restaurant with another good meal (Hot Pot) and drinking a lot ahah.
