Reviews Summary

{"reviewer_id":"A16C43BFD6F48C4CD24C4A661381FB90","reviewer_name":"Franklin W","review_text":"My girlfriend and I went on the 2D/1N trip to Ha Long Bay, in mid-July and had an amazing time. From start to finish our tour guide Dem was amazing, he was helpful and conscientious to everyone on the trip and provided us with a great amount of information and made sure everyone had a good time. \n\nThe trip itself was a wonderful break from the craziness of Hanoi, we were picked up from our hotel and driven 4 hours to Ha Long City which didn't feel so bad as Dem gave us some interesting insights into Vietnamese life and culture and the bus was comfortable.\n\nBased on other reviews we had chosen the Deluxe room which worked out at only $15 more, which I would definitely recommend, it meant we had a much nicer view, our own personal little balcony and our toilet wasn't in our shower. This said, overall the boat was spacious, clean and pleasant to relax on. The only issue with the Deluxe was that is was directly next to the bar so maybe not for people who plan to have an early night and don't want to socialise with their fellow travelers.\n\nThe activities on the trip were also great, the kayaking was really good fun and a great photo opportunity, the caves on the first day were interesting although definitely bring something with a light as it's dark and can be slippery, also a warning to people with claustrophobia there are a few moments that are very tight and low. What really stood out for Vega's trip on the first day was the feeling that they were taking you off the beaten track away from the other tourist areas, even in the evening it was noticeable that we stopped for the night away from the other boats.\nOn the second day the larger caves and view from the top of the island were both breathtaking but definitely be warned if it is hot the humidity is killer so bring lots of water.\n\nThe food on the boat was very nice, we had read reviews suggesting there wasn't much food however we found it to be quite the opposite, lots of food to choose from (even an interactive starter making summer rolls) and Dem had checked ahead of time and catered for those with dietary requirements. We even played some games and overall had a fun social evening, as two people in our late 20s the group was a really nice mix of international young people.\n\nOverall it was an excellent trip, really worth the value of what you pay. I cannot say enough though how much Dem did to make it amazing. He really was everything you could want from a tour guide. Without any hesitation we would definitely recommend this trip. As a final note other than two rest stops while driving, at no point did the trip feel like they were attempting to make you buy something extra, which was really refreshing. We took four large water bottles with us, water was available on the boat but we would recommend you take some extra as if it's hot you will need it.","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.9474814917647059,"sentiment_breakdown":[["My girlfriend and I went on the 2D/1N trip to Ha Long Bay, in mid-July and had an amazing time.",["positive",0.96546257]],["From start to finish our tour guide Dem was amazing, he was helpful and conscientious to everyone on the trip and provided us with a great amount of information and made sure everyone had a good time.",["positive",0.9903437]],["The trip itself was a wonderful break from the craziness of Hanoi, we were picked up from our hotel and driven 4 hours to Ha Long City which didn't feel so bad as Dem gave us some interesting insights into Vietnamese life and culture and the bus was comfortable.",["positive",0.9584599]],["Based on other reviews we had chosen the Deluxe room which worked out at only $15 more, which I would definitely recommend, it meant we had a much nicer view, our own personal little balcony and our toilet wasn't in our shower.",["positive",0.9828655]],["This said, overall the boat was spacious, clean and pleasant to relax on.",["positive",0.9752514]],["The only issue with the Deluxe was that is was directly next to the bar so maybe not for people who plan to have an early night and don't want to socialise with their fellow travelers.",["positive",0.88378054]],["The activities on the trip were also great, the kayaking was really good fun and a great photo opportunity, the caves on the first day were interesting although definitely bring something with a light as it's dark and can be slippery, also a warning to people with claustrophobia there are a few moments that are very tight and low.",["positive",0.8375969]],["What really stood out for Vega's trip on the first day was the feeling that they were taking you off the beaten track away from the other tourist areas, even in the evening it was noticeable that we stopped for the night away from the other boats.",["positive",0.89864796]],["On the second day the larger caves and view from the top of the island were both breathtaking but definitely be warned if it is hot the humidity is killer so bring lots of water.",["positive",0.95744276]],["The food on the boat was very nice, we had read reviews suggesting there wasn't much food however we found it to be quite the opposite, lots of food to choose from (even an interactive starter making summer rolls) and Dem had checked ahead of time and catered for those with dietary requirements.",["positive",0.97550833]],["We even played some games and overall had a fun social evening, as two people in our late 20s the group was a really nice mix of international young people.",["positive",0.9723841]],["Overall it was an excellent trip, really worth the value of what you pay.",["positive",0.957381]],["I cannot say enough though how much Dem did to make it amazing.",["positive",0.9724557]],["He really was everything you could want from a tour guide.",["positive",0.8707899]],["Without any hesitation we would definitely recommend this trip.",["positive",0.99677]],["As a final note other than two rest stops while driving, at no point did the trip feel like they were attempting to make you buy something extra, which was really refreshing.",["positive",0.9365728]],["We took four large water bottles with us, water was available on the boat but we would recommend you take some extra as if it's hot you will need it.",["positive",0.9754723]]],"reviewer_fake_points":-20}

{"reviewer_id":"436351A534EEF7C239AA64555B2F0F5B","reviewer_name":"Uxue S","review_text":"We travelled with Vega Travel and everything was great: activities (kayaking, biking, trecking...) food, stuff... It was worth taking the 3d/2n tour due to the fact that we did not only visited Halong Bay but also went to Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba on the second day. It was really beautiful and peaceful, out of tourist masification. \n\nOur guide Duy was very talkative, attentive and his English also was good. He organised all the steps of the tour perfectly and making sure that everyone was having fun.\n\nMoreover, after the tour we went directly to Ninh Bin instead of coming back to Hanoi. Duy bought the tickets for us and he organised our bus.

He really made sure we were prepared for every next step of the trip, was literally running sometimes to get things done.\nHe also made a lot of jokes, told us interesting facts and made sure everyone had a good time.\n\nUnfortunately a storm came up on the last day, which means all boats had to return to the harbor.
