Alex designed a truly terrific tour for us, we enjoyed every minute of it! I highly recommend this tour! Halong Bay is beautiful and very tranquil, I could've stayed there forever. The cave was magnificent and the boat ride there was indeed memorable, we enjoyed the opportunity to make spring rolls which later was a part of our very delicious lunch. Thanks to Alex we now have experienced a water puppet show, understand pearls and were able to view the beautiful embroidery made by such wonderful people!
