Hanoi to Hai Phong Destination Reviews

They were great. I really recommend Daiichi. In Hanoi they have a sitting area above their office where you can wait for your bus, drink water, go to the toilet, and lock your stuff. The busses were great and on time. But pay attention - there are no usb spots in the busses so you can't charge your phone. They stop in a great and clean location for 20 minutes.

Perfect Pick up and drop off and the hotels. No waiting time at the ferry, great timing!

Bus Express 47, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Feb 27, 2023
It was clearly explained in the bus how long it the journey lasted with bus stop, ferry en drive on island. Drop off at hotel and bus was driving pretty safe
Bus VIP 45, Daiichi Travel (Daiichi Travel), Feb 22, 2023
Mostly good organized and quick trip. It would be better if they just make a meeting point for all guests in old town instead of picking every single one up at the hotel with the whole bus which takes way to much time. The bus was comfy enough for the 4 hour ride. Would book again though because there were no complications at all and the personel was very friendly.
Bus VIP 33, Good Morning Cat Ba Bus (Good Morning Cat ba), Feb 22, 2023
Beds / cabins were fine as advertised but they didn't offer a pillow which was kind of uncomfortable. The buttons to adjust the bed didn't work and staff was not very accomodating / kind of rude. Arrived 3 hours later than advertised (which was to be expected, as you cannot go from Ha Giang to Hanoi in 3 hours). In the end it was fine, but manage your expectations I guess...
Bus VIP 33, Good Morning Cat Ba Bus (Good Morning Cat ba), Feb 21, 2023
Very friendly staff, on time and smooth ride. Well organized! Bus was a bit old but still comfortable enough. Would recommend

Organisation, staff and equipment was excellent and safe
Bus Express 47, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Jan 22, 2023
The ride was good, we had a little delay from Hanoi because the bus had to pick up some people at the city. But all in all, the trip was good!
