When my boyfriend and I were looking for Halong/Bai-tu long bay cruises we had done extensive research and had decided on the Dragon Pear Cruise (Indochina junk). We looked into booking and how to do it and other reviews had excellent reviews for Darian, however there were very few for the specific cruise/Junk we wanted. So let me just say... More

I wanted to tour Halong Bay but was apprehensive about which boat to take that would meet my standards and budget. Along comes Darian Culbert who recommended the overnight cruise with Huong Hai. I was picked up at my Hanoi hotel and don't regret a minute of this tour with its stunning scenery, excellent food, interesting activities and smiling, helpful... More

It's the best boat cruise I ever had particularly the customer service of the bartenders namely Phan Curong and Tom the cashier. Aside from the customer service, the boat facilities are superb. I would definitely recommend La Fairy to my friends. Room for improvement; better English for your creemembers.

I was a little worried at the beginning because I've never booked a tour with a broker on line before, but Darian is very efficient and clear about all the questions I made. Though I didn't checked all the details with him before the trip but everything went perfect! Darian is a reliable agent.

We booked our trip to Ha Long Bay with Darian. He was very responsive to reply my e-mails and the booking process was easy. The service was great and we had good time on the cruise. Thanks Darian.

I booked with this agent and they were very helpful until the week of. I realized that La Fairy cruise did have the dinner in the cave on my own discovery. I am disappointed they didn't inform me of this prior and offer me a discount. I tried emailing me them twice and of course all of a sudden they... More

I booked a trip to Ha Long Bay a few weeks before arriving in Hanoi. I booked through Darian after speaking to a number of agencies. I liked the fact that my emailed were responded to very promptly and accurately. On the day of the trip I was concerned that they had missed me, and so I called him and... More

Darian made our process of booking a trip to Ha Long Bay easy. After taking a look at his very useful website and good reviews we decided to reach out for assistance in booking a tour. Having him take care of all the difficult work of figuring out which tours were available that matched our interest was immensely useful, and... More
