Thanks for good job!
Chartering a seaplane to fly to Halong Bay was one of our greatest decisions. We traveled in a group of eight Americans and really felt satisfied with this high-end tour. We enjoyed sightseeing the beautiful serenity from the top, like we had swings. When landing, we embarked to Violet Cruise and soon admired its luxurious facilities. Excellent!

Hi from Hong Kong
It was our three happy days to travel to Halong Bay by seaplane and rest on Au Co Cruise. My husband and I adored the majestic seascape in Halong via the bird-eye view. We flew above turquoise water as the two free birds. Other scores for this package were luxurious accommodation, facility, and rich meals. Your price is also very competitive. Excellent indeed!
