"Wonderfull and very memorable experience at Paloma in all aspect"
Wonderfull and very memorable experience at Paloma in all aspects. Polite, friendly and good English speaking guide Johny

Poor level of bus which was in striking contrast with the Paloma itself, the services aboard the shipa and the amount of money which was paid for the whole package. Small, non-comfortable seats with not enough space for legs. Although we travelled as a couple (on a wedding anniversary) we were made sit separately in the bus on our way from Hanoi which went completely unnoticed and remained unaddressed till the port

"Everything about the ship was perfect."
Everything about the ship was perfect. The staff were the highlight of the trip, extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us. It felt like 5* service. The food was excellent, although far too much of it. Glad we chose 2 nights, 1 would have been too short.

"loved every minute of it!"
We had a fantastic time, loved every minute of it!

" thank you "
We enjoyed the cruse a lot, everything was just perfect, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We thank you for all your help, it was very good using your service.
from Hong Kong on Sep 30, 2014
"Excellent service"
Excellent service, staff very attentive.

Amazing cave trip is a disappointment. Boat used for day trip on day two of our three day cruise was disappointing, and below the standards of the rest of the trip.
So on Day two, when the one night passengers were seeing the “amazing cave” and returning to Ha Long City, we were taken off on a smaller boat to Kayak.
The day was great, Kayaking was very enjoyable, but the quality of the boat used was only 2* which is of a much lower standard that the main cruise boat.
from Adelaide, Australia on Aug 22, 2014
"Beautiful junk"
Beautiful junk, well catered and friendly staff …………………………….

Expected to spend the major portion of our time on the advertised Paloma cruise boat, which we paid for but instead we were transferred to another smaller basic boat for the main part of our tour. We were disappointed that this meant we did not have access to our cabin, balcony and privacy.…………………………

"Paloma Cruise for 3 days"
Myself and my partner had a very good time on board the Paloma Cruise for 3 days and would definitely recommend this trip to others who are travelling to Vietnam and Hanoi.

No negative reviews.

"very satisfactory"
very satisfactory, We were very happy with the service you and the rest of the bestprice team provided,

the only small negative comment I can make would be on behalf of my girlfriend regarding the food. As she is Vietnamese the menu was not quite to her taste but for the rest everything was fine.
