A Recent Review of this tour

Alex was a very devoted tour guide. Our day in Halong Bay was lots of fun but I was there 8 years ago when it was relatively unspoiled. It is very crowded now and is getting overbuilt and has lost some of it's magical feel. That of course is certainly not Alexs' fault. The boat Alex had reserved for us was very nice and included a wonderful lunch on board. One of our 4 person party took a fall in Hanoi and Alex was called and came to assist us immediately. His attention and kindness were appreciated.
