A quick escape into paradise

We did a 2 day 1 night tour in Bai Tu Long Bay and for this we were given a really great price, a lot of information and we definitely weren’t pressured into choosing one option. Dylan J
I ended up booking a 2D/3N Sapa tour and a 2D/1N Halong Bay / Bai Tu Long Bay tour. Both were great and I think we got very good prices for the services we received… In person, she is so genuine, funny and simply adorable! Thank you Lily! pnamster
