What people say about us
"My girlfriend and I just got back from a 3 day / 2 night cruise wit Galaxy. It was absolutely excellent! Our tour guide Nam, was brilliant and knowledgeable about not only Ha long bay, but Vietnam in general.
The quality of the boat is great ( it's quite new ). Rooms have very comfortable beds, air con, awesome full size showers and clean modern western style toilets.
The food on board is nothing short of amazing. Absolute fine Vietnamese dining..."Tripadvisor customer reviews
