Bus VIP-Class, Truly Hagiang (Du lich Á châu), Nov 9, 2020
Bus was so dirty you couldn’t see out the windows. I was transferred to a sleeper bus, even though I’d paid for a VIP van. Driving was smoking in the bus. Driver kept stopping to let his friends on and off. Awful experience.
Bus VIP-Class, Truly Hagiang (Du lich Á châu), Mar 24, 2020
Our second ride with this company, maximum satisfaction. The driver picked us up at the hotel, at the end of the road he took us to a new accommodation. We do not speak English well, so we communicated in writing. They helped us change the day of departure. Very good service. The bus was clean, comfortable.
Van VIP, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Mar 16, 2020
Impossible to get hold of the company or at least someone who was part of the company to confirm our pick up location.
Bus VIP-Class, Good Morning Cat Ba Bus (Good Morning Cat ba), Mar 10, 2020
Not the same “VIP” bus as the one we took on the way to Ha Giang. It was smaller, no pillows or blankets provided, less space and less comfortable. Driver kept telling us to stop chewing gum!!! Then at the end, near Hanoi they made us change to a crappier minivan
Van VIP, Truly Hagiang (Du lich Á châu), Feb 26, 2020
I emailed the operator and they agreed to pick me up at my hostel, which was nice. I ended up having to speak with them a couple times because the pickup was late and they were very responsive. A taxi came to the hospital to pick me and another person up and us to the bus about 30 minutes after the bus was supposed to leave and drove us for about 40 minutes to an odd location where the bus was waiting by the side of the road. All of this was okay just a little confusing. The bad thing that resulted in the less than 5 star rating was that when we arrived in Hanoi the bus driver took the person on the bus who spoke Vietnamese to their hotel and then took the rest of us to a location in the old quarter of Hanoi at about 2 a.m. and just dropped us off on a a location dark street corner with no real explanation. When I said he was supposed to take us to our hotels he just gave a little grin and walked away. I am pretty familiar with the old quarter and was able to walk to my guest house but most of the other folks were not and it was 2 in the morning everything was closed up tight. That was unacceptable in my opinion
Bus VIP-Class, Good Morning Cat Ba Bus (Good Morning Cat ba), Jan 31, 2020

We were placed in a bus that are all sleeper seat that doesn;t allow us to seat straight. It is like forcing us to sleep as all the chairs are faulty
Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Nov 7, 2019
Without the help of a friendly hostel, the bus and company would forget about us. Bus delayed 2 hours. Shitty conditions, never again.
Van VIP, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Nov 6, 2019
The driver was kind and dropped me off at Noi Bai airport. It took some time before we finally departed from Ha Giang because I was the first one on the bus and we had to pick up of other passengers at their hotels
Bus Semi Sleeper, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Oct 21, 2019
All buses going from Ha Giang to Hanoi didnt recognise the ticket and refused to take me on board. Had to call the ticket number multiple times before someone answered to confirm the bus company which the ticket was actually booked for. I was the first person on the bus yet refused to be seated somewhere of my choice. Departed almost an hour late. Reached destination 1 hour 45 mins late. No pick up bus from My dinh to hotel as stipulated on ticket, I had arranged this via email prior and was left paying for a taxi at 4am.
