Bus pour les locaux pas chère. Celui que nous avons pris avec mon amie était très bien, la musique n'était pas trop forte. Il faisait un peu froid à cause de la clim mais il suffit de fermer les bouches d'aération au dessus des sièges et ça va déjà mieux.

Amazing service! Seamless connection from our hotel at Hanoi to our hotel at Catba, same for the returning trip. We booked the round trip (hanoi Catba) on 12go.asia before we traveled to Vietnam. Goodmorning Catba provided one bottle of water on our way to Catba (but not on the way back). The travel worked perfectly - each trip includes 1 bus -> 1 boat -> 1 bus.

Reliable, professional, and friendly! Really made our trip and would definitely recommend booking with them. We used them both to and from Cat Ba from Hanoi. In Hanoi they were a bit late to pick us up and I started to worry that they wouldn't show up but we were staying at a hostel in the Old Quarter on a very narrow street and it turned out the bus got stuck in traffic and then couldn't find a route to get to us, so they sent a guy on a motorbike to pick us up and lead us to the bus which was waiting a couple blocks away! They apologized profusely for the delay. They also offer free snacks and water and some great advice on what to do on the island.

They pick us up from our hotel and drop us off to the next hotel as well. All personnel including the one on WhatsApp were very helpful and replies promptly. All went smoothly. Usual 5-10 mins minimal delay but no problem with that. They give 5-star service. Includes bottled water, snack, and wet towels. Bus is fairly clean and new (one bus though, from port to Cát Bà a little old and a bit dirty) but all in all, very good. Two thumbs up!

The drive from south end of the island to the ferry terminal was long and bone jarring with many rush turns. Very uncomfortable. There was no one to help with the luggages from bus to ferry to bus. Boat ride was very short, just minutes. Drinks and snacks were just a bottle of water and a small pack of cookies. Bus did not drive passengers to the hotel but just to somewhere close. It is up to the passengers to find way to their hotels. Do not recommend this service.
