    It was a real great experience having a day trip with them. The trip was awesome, the views are pretty. The tour guide did his best to explain and guide us throughout the trip. I was bringing my parents and the activities were suitable for them. Little bit of walking inside the cave, but mostly inside the cruise or boat. Will come back Halong Bay again for an overnight cruise to enjoy the beautiful scene over there.
