Tripadvisor reviews

“Relaxing, enjoyable, romantic!”

I don’t know where to start! This trip was truly memorable. Blue Swimmer from the first email were so helpful and efficient at organising our trip. We met both Minh and Bing, tour guides that speak great English and are good fun to be around and will make your visit special and informative too. Bing was our tour guide on an overnight tour and he was faultless! The boat we stayed on was basic but had everything you needed for a comfy stay. Kayaks were in good condition and Bing found secluded, quiet places to enjoy Lan Ha bay away from other tourists. We would never have found them on our own. The sunset views are spectacular. The seafood was very tasty and cooked perfectly. There was so much food, you won’t go hungry and drinks on tap recommend this tour, enjoy…..
