“My husband and I have been to Asia many times and we usually book everything on our own which means many hours on the net organising…. this time we decided to try something different… We contacted Simons and ended up booking our whole trip with him.”

Excellent service Paul Baxter

“Simon and Ngat planned a 14 day trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.
As we arrived we were met by a personal driver to take us to the hotel. Once settled in the hotel, Simon and Ngat met us for a street food tour that was amazing.
The day after was off for a 3 day cruise in Halong bay.”

At 8am you will be picked up from your Hotel and taken to Halong Bay on the cruise for 2D1N. On arrival to Halong City you will board the boat and check in to your cabins and then take an exquisite seafood lunch (other options available) in the restaurant. While you are eating lunch you will cruise through Halong Bay with views of some very interesting islets and limestone karsts. You will then arrive at the surprising cave where you will spend 45 minutes on a guided tour exploring the huge cave and learn about its history. After this you will then get back on to the boat and sail through to the clean area where you can take part in some kayaking for 45 minutes. Here you can explore inside the limestone karsts, floating through the cave and maybe having fun with the children on who can shout and receive back the loudest echoes.

After this you will get chance to freshen up and change for dinner which will start with a welcome drink for the adults and a soft drink for the children. You will then enjoy a marvellous dinner with the rest of the passengers. In the evening you can check out the squid fishing and then retire to the roof top with a drink or two, before retiring to your cabin for a good nights sleep.

Overnight on Halong Bay Cruise

Day 3: Halong Bay Cruise (B,L)

If you are an early riser, perhaps you would like to take part in a spot of Tai Chi on the top deck of the boat before having breakfast. You will sail through Halong Bay & the fishing villages, stop at a pearl farm and then get back on board to take a cooking class. You will be served lunch again before reaching Halong City, where your transport will be waiting to take you to Hanoi, arriving in the Old Quarter around 4.30pm-5pm.

At 8am you will be picked up from your hotel by your private guide and driver and taken to Tam Coc in your private vehicle. Hoa Lu is the ancient capital of Vietnam and is a splendid tourist destination and a must while in Hanoi. You will see and feel the history and culture surrounding you in this beautiful scenic part of Vietnam. The area is abound with natural limestone peaks whose splendour often surpasses that of Halong Bay. Regarded as the Halong Bay on land, you can see why this has to be visited. You will get to ride in the rowing boat through the 3 caves and snaking canal looking above to see the beauty that is Tam Coc National Park. Having lunch and an optional bicycle ride. Returning to Hanoi around 6.30pm where you can relax or take in a delicious meal at a recommended restaurant, the best in Hanoi's Old Quarter.
