Visiting Bai Tu Long Bay and Halong Bay with Ethnic Travel was definitely the highlight of my vacation in Vietnam. I had booked the 3 days/ 2 nights package and it was absolutely the right choice! All my expectations were fulfilled: With only a small group of 7 tourists on the boat, it was really possible to enjoy nature and... More

Two friends and I went on an overnight trip to Halong Bay with little expectations. The guide, Chaing, was so great. We spent the 24 hours talking about the difference between our countries and learning Vietnamese. Her English was excellent. The boat crew did a great job, all of the seafood for lunches and dinner was fresh caught. We moored... More

We did a three night Ninh Binh and Mai Chau trip staying at two home stays. The homes were wonderful and a great experience. Ninh Binh rooms had private bathrooms. We helped with the cooking one night which was fun. Hiking and biking were done, our guide was Ngoc who was wonderful. The driver was very cautious and a good... More

The tour to Bai Tu Long Bay definitely lived up to what it promised. The homestay was nice and spacious. Our guide, Moa, was friendly and organized. It was a good mix of activities. The driving to get there was a bit long, but there's not much anyone can do about that. Definitely worth it!

Great experience with Ethnic travel, the boat trip was great! We had a problem with the boat engine and we had to wait for a few hours, but Ethnic travel compensate it by driving us to the airport for free! Thanks to Lily and pet who were our guides!!

Staff said they would comeback to me on this but never did. Later we discovered we were on a one night trip... More

My husband and I used Ethnic Travel for a 3 day / 2 night tour to Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Overall, it was a positive experience as most activities were away from large hoards of tourists. This was our #1 priority. Our guide (Ming) was a little quirky but, he grew on us over the 3 days... More

We took a two days one night trip to Bai Tu bay and were largely disappointed with the tour. We paid $117 dollars each and expected to receive comparable service. Instead we recieved a tour guide who spoke very poor english, did not explain any information about the things we were seeing and only seemed to care about us giving... More
