We spent only one day and one night aboard the magnificent Ginger junk, my two children (7 and 15 years old) and me. We had this chance ... but we would have liked to spend more time there. This remains my daughter's best travel memory and one of the best for me too. It was fine, the route taken by the boat being one of the least congested of the Bay along we have crossed only 2 or 3 other boats and the constantly renewed landscapes have enchanted us in the peace and quiet. serenity. We visited a cave, went canoeing, we went swimming, we visited a floating village, a fish farm and we discovered pearl oyster farming. The rooms were great, we had our showers watching the sea, the food excellent and all taken on the deck. The crew on board was very attentive and sang us a moving song at the end of the cruise. We will keep all these moments spent with them an unforgettable memory to come out during the sad winter days. Thank you to all of you !!!

Stay three days two nights aboard the private junk White Dolphin. Beautiful landscape under the sun. This service allows to discover the bay in all tranquility because we are always alone. ideal for calm; No more noise problem at night in the room, this problem has probably been solved; Small cabin beautifully decorated. Bathroom correct: a pity that we could not close the door where freshness of the air conditioning. Nice breakfasts: quantity and quality. More average dinners: change of what was written on the menu. We deplored the fact that in a country where fruit abounds, at breakfast we are given the choice: fruit or fruit juice but not both. We had to negotiate! All these little details that did not spoil our stay were told to the guide and to our surprise the commercial director of the agency was waiting for us on our return to take us to his comfortable office. He kindly listened to us, took notes and offered drinks for our return to Hanoi. A few days ago, when we got home, we received an email from him highlighting all the points and solutions: proof of great professionalism.

You must have seen Halong Bay and sailed around these curious rocks drowned in mist. The silence is impressive and the strange beauty of the place is moving. The junk (Bhaya of memory) that led us in this huge labyrinth was also part of the approval. Copper, mahogany, cleanliness, impeccable service, excellent table. Everything would be idyllic if there had been some flats. Firstly, access on board requires fingering, grip and balance, the safety of these operations being minimal. Then the temperature of January in Vietnam requires efficient heating and the generator released us (fortunately a rescue group came later to the rescue). And then the cottage of the ship made the Italian shower useless because of overflow. Well, a junk for 4 people in such a place leaves only great memories. To recommend ... warmly.

Air-conditioned cabin, comfortable bedding, perfect bathroom , all of an exemplary cleanliness. Landing on a white sand beach for a swim in the bay ... exceptional! Squid fishing at night with a projector ... fun ... when it bites ... By chance, the sun and the heat was at the rendezvous, which makes the place even more majestic, unforgettable, fairy ... This company was recommended by our travel agency in Vietnam: Sail Back In Time, so thank you for this excellent choice of company because it is not easy to make a choice on the mass of offers.

Beautiful cruise in the bay of Halong aboard a junk with all the comforts of a hotel room, certainly the cabin was not very big but it had a bathroom with modern shower and especially a fantastic view through the window. The staff are numerous, helpful and very friendly. The meals on board are hearty, varied and delicious. Visits are organized at a pace a little too fast, we would have liked more free time for the contemplation of this magical site. The advantage of this company is that it offers a circuit a little away from the busiest areas, we were three boats on area during our visit is about 60 people in a space of several square kilometers, rather reasonable when we think of thousands of visitors annually! If possible, favor the circuit over three days for more peace.

With family and friends of 6, we spent a day and a half on a private junk (Amira cruiser), with 4 cabins. These, with modern shower rooms, are comfortable and in all respects in line with the photos presented on the site of Sail Back in Time. The service is impeccable, with stylish and smiling staff, it's very nice! The cuisine is excellent and presented and served with research on a remarkably set table on the deck, facing the sumptuous scenery of Halong Bay. It will remain a remarkable memory. During this short stay, we were able to visit a very pretty cave, a floating village with its school, all this with a swim in the bay ... We were lucky to have a great time, without much of fog, and to sail practically alone while savoring the calm and the beauty of the sites, with a superb sunrise as a bonus. Finally, we regretted not to stay longer on this junk, this interlude in a circuit of a month in Vietnam is a real happiness: unforgettable and to recommend.
