Amazingly comfortable. Staff was perfect.

The bus itself was comfortable however the driver was incredibly rude. Approx an hour and a half from the final stop the bus pulled in and our bags were taken off the bus and put into another smaller bus without explanation. When we questioned the driver he simple told us to get off the bus. I understand not everyone in Vietnam has great English, so using google translate he again told us to get off the bus and a motor bike would bring us to the airport. We tried to explain we wanted to go into the city to which he responded thought Google translate again to get into the other bus. as we tried to ask why we were being moved from one bus to another the bus driver proceed to speak Vietnamese with other passengers and sitting around us. They all began to stare laugh at myself and my partner as we tried to understand what was happening. A very uncomfortable and unsettling experience. Having two different drivers and other passengers intentionally laughing at us was incredibly unprofessional and we won't be travelling with this company again.

The first ride to Dalat was upper seats and my parents had difficulty to climb up so we requested for change on this ride but was told bus was full. Understand that if the bus was fully booked then no choice on reallocation but at the first place we weren’t given the choice to select seat! Please kindly consider to give lower deck seating to oldies.

Bus Express, Phuong Trang (Phương Trang), Jan 26, 2020
We travelled from dalat to ho chi Minh in a semi sleeper bus but don't be fooled, we didn't get any sleep. The driver drove like a maniac, constantly accelerating and then immediately braking, used the horn every two seconds, really reckless driving. I know this is how they drive in Vietnam, but I think it has to change, especially when they have tourists on board. The only good thing I can say is that we reached our destination 2 hours earlier.The two stars are because the bus was very comfortable. Unfortunately the ride was not.

Finding and booking a trip is so easy and hassle-free. It was a pleasant ride. It was just confusing that I was given a wrong bus number at the station's desk. Even the assistance crew during boarding got confused.

I reached earlier than expected (~2hrs before). It was a smooth & safe journey, driver wasn't speeding & there were multiple toilet breaks. The lady at HCMC bus station was also kind enough to guide & tell us that the bus have arrived.However, please do not expect to have announcements made in english language. Also, I believe the company should look into the cleanliness of each cabin as there were leftover of what seems to be potato chips in the personal cabin.

Bus Semi Sleeper, The SinhTourist (The SinhTourist), Dec 17, 2019
Travelled with this company 3 times. HCMC to Mui Ne. Mui Ne to Dalat and Dalat to HCMC. No complaints with any of the journeys. Nice buses and comfortable. The road from Mui Ne to Dalat is incredibly bumpy but not the bus company fault. Overall consistently impressed.

The trip went smoothly. However, the costumer service from 12goasia was non existing, sent several emails about geting seats in the front of the bus but they did not help.

Bus VIP 20, Thanh Buoi (Thành Bưởi), Dec 5, 2019
I was asked to pay during the trip again even though I already paid online. Booking was simple and easy, but it is much more expensive than booking on the spot. Hope the processing fee can be reduced.

Need more WC stops. The driver is over taking constantly. Even when it is too dangerous to overtake. I do not feel safe at all.

30 minute bathroom/food break midway. Bus arrived at my stop in HCMC at 12 midnight (1 hour early!) Lots of beeping but overall a good experience :) Took the 6pm - 1am bus from Da Lat to HCMC

Actually, the bus was good because we felt like VIP , but the problem was the driver cannot speak and cannot understand English. It's very hard to communicate.. I hope the driver has companion to translate in English..

Bus VIP 20, Thanh Buoi (Thành Bưởi), Oct 4, 2019
The novelty of the sleeper bus ride was a win, but we arrived way earlier than advertised and had to find sleep at an all night sports bar. Once was fine to experience local travel but I doubt I'd do it again

Very nice bus, but screens and chargers didn’t work. One bathroom stop over a 6.5 hr bus is inhumane. Very difficult to communicate with staff

My first time in a semi sleeper. Great experience. Driver very skillful and competent. How they manage to maneuver that large vehicle in heavy traffic defies description. I felt safe at all times. Only issue - lack of English speaking assistant on bus, otherwise great.

The bus journey was absolutely amazing. It was so clean and honestly the 7 hours from Dalat to Ho Chi Minh city was the smoothest bus ride I have ever taken in my life.

Bus VIP 20, Thanh Buoi (Thành Bưởi), Jul 23, 2019
The best coach journey we made in Vietnam! The sleeping berths are spacious (unusual in Vietnam when you’re 6ft +) and the air conditioning worked well. There were even charging ports so I could listen to music without having to worry about running out of battery. We did get into Ho Chi Minh City about an hour and a half late but you can’t blame Thành Buoi for the traffic!
