I've contacted David for a 1 day tour of Bai Tu Long Bay. He organized everithing and followed all our requests (early pick up at Hanoi and return on Ninh Binh). The tour was amazing, Bai Tu Long is extremely less known than Halong bay but it's beautiful. We had an half day on a boat all for us, we had the lunch on the boat and we saw a lot of interesting things (Oyster farms, fish farms, Little Island with a cave ...). I definitely recomend Hanoi Eco tour, David Is extremely kind and he Will organized a perfect tour for you!
