Hue to Phong Nha Destination Reviews

12Go - I don't know who should update bus times, but the1620 bus is not a 1620 bus. The place where we have to meet for the bus even has it down as a service leaving at 1700 (which we only found our when asking why the bus was so late). It was absolute chaos. There were a lot of people waiting for buses and no information was being given about what time they might arrive. Then suddenly about 5 buses turned up and no-one could find out which bus was for where as the one member of staff was dealing with one bus. We were eventually allowed to board a bus which set off at 1755. Not everyone fit on, but were told there would be another one. Our bus still had the litter on from the passengers on the previous trip, and we used the same blankets that they had left. Most of the seats were broken so wouldn't sit up at all. The driver drove safely and the seats were comfortable to sleep on - the only positive thing i can say about the service. At the rest stop (squat toilets) we collected more passengers (locals), who sat along the aisles. A completely different experience to the bus I got from HCMC

Good Bus ride- we got informed that the bus leaves earlier one day before (I received an email and a Whatsapp) in the end we left have an hour late (same as the time in the first place). Whatsapp contact was great as we did the Hai Van pass before and did not no wether our luggage will arrive on time- the bus company contacted the motorbike rental which was great. We made one toilet stop (30 min) during 4 hour bus drive which was fine.

The bus was meant to arrive into Phong Nha at 19.30. We didn't arrive until 22.00 the bus shares incorrect time on the length of the journey. Not sure if this is to try and entice more people to use this company as all other providers say it does take 5 hours.

We booked T-Bus but when we turned up to the departure point it was outside the Queen Cafe office and it was a Queen Cafe bus (this also happened to other people we spoke to later). We were worried as we had deliberately been avoiding Queen Cafe due to its terrible reviews. That said, the bus was a limousine sleeper and was new, clean and comfortable. We left an hour late but made up time on the road - also someone phoned me earlier in the day to let me know which was much appreciated. So a surprisingly good experience given turned out to be Queen Cafe.

Travelled from Hue to Phong Nha in sleeper bus. Arrived at the stop half an hour earlier as recommended, but bus came half an hour late so ended up waiting for one hour. Bus was smelly and the driver was smoking inside. Otherwise very comfortable ride.

The driver drove crazy. He smoked, phoned and drove simultaneously, didn't feel very save. The seats in the bus couldn't get up, which made you lie down dringend te entire trip (our trip was from 16.30 till 21.30, so we weren't planning to sleep).
