  • We booked 2 days (one night) with the company Lavender in view of all the reviews (very positive) on trip Advisor. Even if we had read it in the guides, you must be aware that the Bay d along is a tourist factory, you will never be quiet. What shocked us most was the pollution due to the number of boats. Regarding lavender, we chose the elegance cabin, which actually fulfills its conditions in space and view of the Bay. On the other hand it is located at the back of the boat and just above the exhaust exits which is just horrible to sleep at night as the engine runs all night for electricity, air conditioning and there is a horrible smell in the cabin. What is regrettable with this company is that it is looking for the slightest economy and profit-seeking: the WiFi was not working (this is not the most serious but in this case do not specify in the brochure) the air conditioning is switched on from the first day 5pm to the next 6h, they then cut it... We had to (very) strongly insisted that they put it back in our room due to the smell of exhaust just unbearable. The activities on the paper are interesting but very short!! The cooking class boils down to each 4min to make a Nem... It is really a pity that we would have time to make a more interactive and interesting course. The food on board is really not good, for having frequenting before Street restaurants where we eat for 3 times nothing, we say that they make no effort to bring taste and variety despite their culinary riches. At the table the water is paying, just like coffee or tea, unfortunately we do not tell you that the day of departure... (not very trader). Our guide Peter did not fulfil his duties, he was more often on his laptop than with us, for example we were the only two with my companion during Taichi because he did not even specify the time to the other customers... We asked him before we went to bed. In the positive points the staff is nice and the boat is very clean and beautiful. If we were to redo this excursion we would be more vigilant about the weather, the Bay must really be beautiful by a clear and sunny sky. For our part the sky was cloudy and the exhaust fumes of the boats did not arrange anything. There is also plenty of garbage in the Bay which is worrying for such a place. It is interesting to prefer a excursion of at least 2 days to enjoy a little on the spot and try to avoid the influx of those who come for the day. Finally even though the company agreed to reduce the cost of the room from $30 due to the exhaust smells that made us sick all night we would not go back with this company which is proving very mediocre.

  • It was a great time, did more than I thought I would do in two day with squid fishing, a spring roll class, and with a great tour guide named peter  more »
  • The trip was great. The rooms and crew were really nice. The cooking class showed us how to roll a spring roll. Squid fishing was not as exciting.  more »

  • I have taken 1 night cruise in the bay. Unfortunately, the following elements were very worrying and made my experience not the best. PROS: - good food on the boat - convenient transfer from Hanoi - activities were okish, the guide was not introducing much about the places visited plus there was barely any time to make photos CONS: - quality of the boat - according to the description the boat should have been renovated, but it was not 1. ROOM - shower was dirty to the level that we have decided not to shower, 2. WiFi - there was no WiFi service on the boat, which was supposed to be included. Guide has informed me that we are on open sea, so there is no service 3. SMELL & NOISE of engine was unbearable on the cabin floor and in our room 4. FIRST AID - nobody on the boat, including guide or stuff member have any idea about first aid. I have fallen down the stairs, breaking my leg and nobody was able to help. There was just one gentleman, possibly from kitchen or cleaning service who was able to come organise at least an ice. 5. QUALITY - the boat seemed old and rotten.
  • Very nice
