Great - friendly and really helpful staff (particularly Shan) who picked us up from our hotel in Hanoi and dropped us at the door of our hotel in Cat Ba and explained different things we might want to do on the island etc., but without trying to sell us anything. Complimentary snacks and water and a nice comfortable clean bus, both the boat, the pick up and the bus were on time, and it was a very pleasant trip. Thank you.

Train #HP1 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Oct 7, 2019
Super-simple method of low-cost travel. We took the 6am train from Hanoi to Haiphong and we’re impressed with the ease and speed of the process. No issues at all. If you don’t need luxury for a quick ride, I highly recommend this leg of the journey. *Pay attention to where you are on your map. No one spoke English (tried to order Coke = big fail) and we didn’t understand the train conductor (at all) when he would shout out the stop name. We expected Haiphong to be an actual station (like Hanoi), and we almost missed getting off. We took cab to Ha Long from Haiphong, BUT shuttles were waiting outside, all of whom asked if we wanted to hop on. Wish we hadn’t pre-booked the cab as the shuttle was way cheaper (and we had the slowest cab driver on the planet). Looking forward to our train back to Hanoi!

Couldn’t fault the service however there is hardly any leg room for someone 5’7”, any taller and it’s an uncomfortable ride. The website claims a 2hr journey, it took us 6hrs to arrive at our destination. This was the main reason for the 3*, otherwise the service was largely spot on.

The journey to Cat Ba (and back) was just lovely. They leave on time, they provide you with a bottle of water and a snack - “All for you”, That’s what our second guide used to say when he gave us something. So kind. -, they make sure that you have all your luggage with you. We also booked a day trip with them (Lan Ha bay) and I can absolutely recommend it. We had a blast! And...it was just 23 dollar a person (or was it 22, not sure). We also took the bus back to Hanoi, where we could drop our luggage at their office while we wandered around in the city until we had to go to the train station. When we stepped in their office to pick up our luggage, it went like this: “Where do you go now?” - “To the train station.” - “No problem, we will book a grab car for you.” Two minutes later, we were in the car on our way to the train station. So easy, so comfortable, so kind. Thanks again, Cat Ba Express team! :) :)

I was charged 220000 dong for the so called hydrofoil. The boat that ferried me was not the hydrofoil and other passengers had cheaper tickets. The ferry didnt leave at 9am as stated. It took about 1.5 hours and should have taken 45 minutes on the hydrofoil.

Goede snelle transfer van Hanoi naar Cat Ba. Jammer dat een Rus de halve bus had gereserveerd voor mensen die bij latere haltes nog moesten instappen, hier had wel iets aan gedaan mogen worden.
