We very much enjoyed our tour with Active Travel. The only suggestions I would make for improvement to the package would be to state it was a hut for the accommodation on the beach and not include the tent option on a secluded beach in the itinerary as it isn't really what you get.

Also maybe you could consider rock climbing incorporated in the package? We saw people doing this while we kayaked and would have enjoyed the experience of this during our trip.

Hi Ms Sunny,

Thanks for your mail. I'm so sorry that I haven't replied you earlier. I have been so busy after my holiday in Vietnam! Sorry for neglecting your email.

Actually we were very happy with Active Travel. We had an excellent tour guide, who could speak good English, and was very informative and engaged. He was a great assistance, and he took us to many wonderful places in Halong Bay which we wouldn't have discovered without him.

We greatly enjoyed the kayaking and exploring of caves and lagoons. We also like that we had the boat all to ourselves during the day, and we could be flexible on how we want our itinerary to be. The seafood was also great, and I loved that special lunch we had on our last day when the boat crew created dishes with amazingly crafted dragon and phoenix from carrots and vegetables.

We would like to say thank you to Active Travel for its good service, and well-planned itineraries. Please continue the good work, and best of luck to you too!

Best regards,
