This was a great way to travel from HCMC to Vung Tau. The ferry is very clean and the service was wonderful. The ferry was on time and arrived on time. I would definitely suggest this as a way to get around in Vietnam.

Advertised as 90 min trip but it took 2 hrs and 30 mins. Even the crew says it's over 2 hrs. Also original departure time cancelled due to tides - more likely low numbers ?

I am usually meticulous and neurotic about getting to my transpo hours in advance. I mid-read this trip and thought it was for 2pm but it was instead for noon. Luckily for me it was 1 1/2 hours late and since I was there an hour early I made it. So, thanks for being late.

We are two women who had to travel from Ho Chi Minh City's airport to Ho Tram. We were looking for a shuttle bus / transfer that could take us to our destination and we came across Ouros travel on 12go.asia. There was a WhatsApp no. And we got in touch with a very friendly and helpful person who told us what to do when we arrived in Ho Chi Minh City and everything was well organized. The person from Ouros travel had already informed the driver of the van where to drop us off and made sure that he would help us get a taxi. I would recommend Ouros travel to anyone! :)

Girl in office at Ho Chi Minh ferry port office needs to learn some manners very rude and abrupt. If you do not speak English why not try to be helpful. Sitting at her work station with no shoes on, trying to look at her phone discreetly and two children I guess hers creating havock in the office...... Are we at work or home??? Best of luck!!........

The 2 hour trip took 3.5 hours as we drove round saigon picking up other travellers and waiting 30 minutes for 1 person. We were due to arrive at 8 but instead arrived at 9:30pm unable to find anywhere open for dinner. We hope the return trip today is better!

We got a ride straight from hotel to hotel, which was more than we expected. Comfortable ride and plenty of space. I just couldn’t get my seatbelt on.

On arrival after immigration and customs called number. I was met at post 11 shortly after with my name. They let me take bus at 11:00A.M. instead of my booked bus at 12:30 P.M. Bus very comfortable including massage. Bit slow getting to Vung Tau including stop for a lunch.
