  2. Jonathan S

    I had a good trip with Dragon Bay Cruise. Despited of being a solo travelers, it’s never less fun on board. Trung, the tour guide was excellent with his humor!

  3. Jayc Q

    Our guide, Tom, and the rest of the ship staff were so helpful and friendly. You will love Lan Ha bay because it is quiet and has beautiful scenery.

  4. jackborne9

    Nice trip and crew. We went on a trip through the bay and had the chance to swim and boat. River, the tour guide, was friendly and excited about the trip. The food was good, but it could have been a little more traditional Vietnamese.

  5. Bon J

    This is a great trip, with fun things to do and a beautiful view. Trung is a great tour guide who did everything he could to make sure everyone had a good time. I would tell everyone to go on this trip.
