Hanoi to Hue Destination Reviews

The bus came an hour late, the pillow and blanket we got were not clean and they used the bus to transport packages which were in the way for passangers.
Bus Sleeper 41, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Jan 8, 2023
Good driving, the bus wasn’t in the best conditions, dirty inside and not charging point. But anyway it was a good price for the 14 hours ride and smooth for a perfect sleeping.
Bus Sleeper 41, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Dec 11, 2022
Bus was late to board, supposed to board at 6pm and didn't board till almost 7pm. Seats were very narrow, I am 6 ft tall(170lbs) and could not straighten my legs. 12 hours of agony. Would not do it again.
Bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Jul 20, 2022
Not as advertised, very uncomfortable - worth getting the train or flying instead
Bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Jun 7, 2022
From what we heard about this bus company it was really OK. We probably got lucky. Bus was only half full, so we got space and we had only hour delay (on 13h trip it is a huge success in my mind). The staff were not friendly but they did their job.
Bus Standard AC, Hoang Long (Hoàng Long), Jan 21, 2020
The journey went smoothly and the drivers were very friendly. It only would be nice if we would have been informed at the bus station in Hanoi that the bus was on its way, but an hour late.
Bus Standard AC, Hoang Long (Hoàng Long), Jan 4, 2020
The bus leave with 30 minutes of delay. The seats are really short, maximun 1,5mt. The driver honked all the way and drived really fast, we could not sleep and we arrived two hours before the time of arrive. He got off everyone 5km form the point of arrive that was write on the ticket so we had to pay for a man that brought us to the hostel.
Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Nov 10, 2019
There needs to be a toilet facility on the coach. If there was one, it was not accessible as there were not enough stops to be able to go to the toilet. If there were one on the coach however I am unsure there was. There was one cupboard looking section at the back however had a lot of stuff in front of it so was no accessible whatever it was.
Bus Standard AC, Hoang Long (Hoàng Long), Nov 7, 2019
Bus left on time. However the person roaming around the bus was rude.
Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Oct 4, 2019
