Very fast and comfortable

The van was ok but the experience wasn't good. We were collected by a car (not a van) 15 minutes late (and It was ok, because the cause was trafic jam) and after 7 km we stopped 30 minuts. The driver was talking all the time by phone and gave us no explanation. After 30 minutes waiting, the trip started again but we again stopped IN THE MIDDLE OF AN HIGHWAY waiting for someone (no information given again). After 20 minuts a van arrived and we changed there our type of transport. It was totally surrealist. When I asked the driver (Who didn't speak English) about explanation he laughted at me without no respect. Finally we arrived 30 minutes late (instad of 1 hour late as expected) because the second driver drove well above the speed limits. Also in the limousine there were no wifi and the driver had no idea where to drop us (fortunately a passenger who spoke English helped us). Since It should be luxury, no recommended at all.

Instead of the booked van we got picked up by a big tour bus 20 minutes late. The bus started then to drive around Hanoi old town to pick up more people from their hotels. So we eventually left Hanoi about one hour late. The drive was ok and we actually made up some of the delay until we stopped at a pearl souvenir shop shortly before Ha Long bay for half an hour half an hour. Eventually we arrived one hour late. Annoyingly this was not caused by the traffic bus by poor organisation by the operator (Vehicle not as advertised, late departure, stop at souvenir shop)

I bought a ticket to Tuan Chau, but they took me to the main part of city instead.

The bus was too late and than they made a break about half an hour at some pearl store where it seems like they shuttle every tourist to. At least they brought as directly to our check in at the Harbour.
