what our valued passengers say about us
Exceeded expectations

There were only 4 couples on our boat. Our room was old but quaint. The food was amazing - lunch & dinner. Our guide Chris was great fun. The fishing village was interesting and the caves were small. Beautiful scenic views from the boat. Thoroughly enjoyed the overnight cruise.


Halong Bay is usually promoted as the Vietnam highlight and they are not wrong. My cabin, although small, was the equal of most hotel rooms. The private balcony was an especially nice touch. The food and drinks were excellent and there were plenty of activities on and off the boat to make the time pass quickly. They even let us fish off the back deck before going to bed. One of the other passengers actually caught a couple of squid!

Great trip amazing scenery,food and service

We had a 2 night 3 day trip The accommodation was good food excellent and the staff all 5 Star We would be happy to recommend this trip and company

Wonderful way to see Halong Bay

We loved Halong Bay, and the Bhaya Classic two day cruise was a wonderful way to see it. The accommodations were incredible. We loved our wood paneled room, very elegant and definitely felt like we were traveling back in time to a different age of sea travel. The staff on the boat was some of the most friendly and eager wait staff I have ever experienced. They tried so hard to make sure everyone was having a wonderful time. The food was good, the cooking demonstration a little hokey, but all in good fun. Tom, our tour director was fantastic. I really don’t think it could have been better.

Thank you to Dan and his team

We started our cruise with a seemless pick up from Hanoi in November 2018. As soon as we arrived Dan made us feel welcome. The cabin was delightful and the food was delectable. The activities were well thought out and we especially enjoyed the tai chi with Christmas. Thank you for the memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Graeme and Sarah from New Zealand.

Another world experience

Tried our first cruise around Halong Bay for 2 nights. Au Co cruises are top end of the market but you get first class treatment from hotel pick up to drop off The boat is big holds 96 but there was c30 on our cruise so lots of room. We had poor weather ie cloudy and drizzle rain for the whole time but did not detract from the experience. Very good activities visiting village on island and floating village. Also kayaking, squid disgusting and various others to keep you entertained. Crew and staff could not have been more helpful and cabin was big enough for 2 nights Food was plentiful and high quality. Scenery is surreal it was a shame we didn’t get some sun to bring out the colours more but you can’t book the weather! Well worthwhile experience

Perfect cruise

We were very surpriced by the well organized & friendly service on board. Our room was very clean and equiped with everything we wished. Food was great too. Even when my grilfriend did not like seafood, they took special care and made seperate plates accordingly. Thank you very much for the amazing time. Roger & Tosca
