          I am very happy with my experience with Hai Phong Tours! I booked the 6 hour day tour from Hai Phong the day before going, and it was easy to get my questions answered and to book through email. Mr. Phuong is very responsive. Pick up from our hotel in Hai Phong was included, and our driver was friendly. Our tour guide for Ha Long Bay was Ben. He was funny and informative. I would definitely recommend this tour.

          We had about 5 hours to fill between getting off a cruise in Ha Long Bay and flying out of the Hai Phong airport. Phuong at Haiphong tours was the answer. He put together a fun itinerary for us and showed us several sights around town. We were traveling with our 8 and 11 year old and he did a great job of incorporating their interests into the afternoon, complete with tasty juice for them upon pick up. He was very helpful via WhatsApp in getting the tour set up and did a lot to help us navigate the cruise ship terminal departure and arrival as well. It was really great to have a local just a WhatsApp message away when we were not sure where we were going or what to do. I highly suggest dropping Phuong a message when if you are in Hai Phong.

          Customer Service started at the point when you reached out to the agency. They are so patient with our requirements and because we are travelling with a baby, I had endless requests.

          Mr Phuong is so attentive with his responses. I don’t think he sleeps. He still reply to my questions until 10pm!

          The overall cruise ship was an amazing trip. Its so organised and on time. The caves are magnificent. View is outstanding.

          The cruise crew member are so helpful. They cook congee for my sick son, they organised the hospital etc.

          I cant thank everyone enough.

          Very well organized and enjoyable one day trip. Clear and nice guide speaking well English. Trying to give the most comfort to te tourists they even change the shift so it was not so crowded.
          Very good food as a lunch. We requested vegetarian and it was very tasty.
          Be prepared, that drinks (even water) you have to pay.
          You are not allowed to take your own drinks.
          The driver picked us up from the hotel in Hai Phong and waited till the boat arrived to bring us back.

          We had booked the tour the night before and got very quick and good help via Whatsapp.
          We chose the VIP option, which meant that there were fewer guests on board the ship.
          The tour guides spoke very good English and were very attentive.
          On board the ship we had lunch with a normal and a vegan buffet.
          Important note for payment on board: Have enough cash with you as credit card payment is not possible.
          We enjoyed the day tour and had a lot of fun.
