Very lovely cruise. The highlight for us was our one day, day cruise that was an awesome day. The rowboat to the fishing village was also very good. The food has been great and great variety. The cake for our honeymoon was also a lovely treat. Thank you. We will recommend you to our friends
We had a wonderful experience. It was such beautiful scenery, however it was the high standard of professional care and attention from Kent was exceptional and it makes the difference between this and other companies. Congratulations to Kent who was very attentive and thoughtful. Please send details of any promotions and special prices. We are living in KL and can come again with friends.
The moment I step on the boat I felt relaxed and welcomed, the staff are very hospitable and very kind. The food was of an excellence standard and the presentation of the dishes was extraordinary. Our guide Ha Luong was awesome throughout with great knowledge and as a personal favour she offer to show me around Hanoi which I accepted. Outstanding 5 star services
We have totally enjoyed our time on a boat. The program is well organised and we had lots of different activities.
The staff on Starlight and Tom were very accommodating, friendly and provided excellent service. They made our honeymoon extra special with our beautiful cake and wine. We will remember forever. The food was also amazing. I will recommend Starlight cruise to my friends and family in Australia when they come to Vietnam. Thank you.
