Passenger reviews out of total 4,320 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★★ Nov 2, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, King Express) :
Perfect way to get to Sapa! The bed was comfortable (for a sleeper on a train, of course) and the ride went smoothly.
★★☆☆☆ Oct 29, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express) :
Need thicker mattress. Better snacks and free coffee should have been included. Very grumpy carriage lady!
★★★☆☆ Oct 27, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express) :
It was absolutely freezing all night long: that combined with the very rough train ride made sleeping fairly difficult. Take a lot of warm clothing and a hat! Very thin mattress so hard bed. It was an on time departure and arrival. Also, my voucher said that I was to pick up the ticket at the actual carriage on the train, but in fact I had to ask around - a man was just walking round the waiting room looking for people on his list: fairly hit and miss, but I did get the ticket. Also I had asked for a lower berth and said that I would not want a ticket if that was not available, but my ticket was an upper berth. Luckily I was able to change it as I was there early. But be careful - there are no ladders to the top berths so they require considerable agility.

★★★★★ Oct 23, 2017 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
Bus came a little bit later but that was okey because of very good Service and friendly staff. Was the only passenger in a VIP Bus and that was really good. I can only recommend this tour:)
★★★★★ Oct 15, 2017 (van VIP, Grouptour) :
Good ride. Driver was safe and very reliable. Felt very much comfortable on the ride. Only qualm was the longer than usual rest stops where everyone was just sitting around doing nothing for 20 mins. Could be better if the rest could be shorter.
★★☆☆☆ Oct 15, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Fanxipan) :
Comfy and clean bed, but super annoying drinks cart sellers!! Also some guys (im not whether they are trains staff) talked very loud for a few hours in front of our sleeping coach!!!! I could barely sleep before 1.30 am. However, when it came to a situation that we had to be transferred by buses for 1/2-1 hours, the trains staff managed smoothly...very well organized.
★★★☆☆ Oct 15, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Orient Express) :
Facilities were good but extremely noisy train and very bumpy ride. Hardly got any sleep.
★★★★★ Oct 13, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Very comfortable, wonderful guide
★★★☆☆ Oct 9, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Pumpkin Express) :
火车睡铺整体是不错,但火车的一切都需付费,这点不够透明化
★★★☆☆ Oct 5, 2017 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
The bus itself was Oke, but getting on the bus was chaotic and not well organized with the result that it took a long time. The driver drive quit wild and not always safe, and did not speak english. One of our bags came out the storage below the bus very dirty.
★★★★★ Oct 3, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Excellent value for money. The train left on time and arrived early:) it was a bit wobbly at first (felt like being on a boat), but I was able to fall asleep soon enough. The trains are more spacious than expected. I recommend the upper berth.
★★★★☆ Oct 1, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Good seats. Pick up at the hotel with smal bus and later the original bus. Two stops fot toilet. And take the highway. So the trip to SAPA was 6 hours .
★★★★☆ Sep 30, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Orient Express) :
Excellent cabin plenty of room complimentary water clean But if you are more than 5' 9" tuck your knees up in the bunks Train was on time leaving and arriving morning coffee served hot Great service
★★★★☆ Sep 24, 2017 (van VIP, Grouptour) :
Nice travel from Hanoi to Sapa. The music was really loud to the rear of the van though. The driver has been really kind helping us to find the hotel.
★★★★☆ Sep 23, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Train was okay, getting in was easy and no hassle, staff seemed friendly. Be sure to get the lower bunks, because the air conditioning only kinda cools the above bunks. All the heat goes up ;) Beds were as comfortable as can be in a train. Restrooms up to improving, to be honest. Really dirty and smelly.
★★★★☆ Sep 22, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Chapa Express) :
The bed was clean and enjoyed theamenities . I did not try the washroom. Also, lost a star because the train left 30 minutes early which is not ideal if you purchased ticket expecting it to leave at 10pm. As well, I had to exchange my voucher for ticket which was burdensome and no one would explain to me.
★★★★★ Sep 22, 2017 (van VIP, Grouptour) :
Super comfortable seats

Very nice except 1 toilet not working
★★★★★ Aug 4, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Smooth check in with free pick up at our hotel in a small minivan! Operators were good and clear, briefing was provided at the beginning of the trip. Snacks and water was provided on board.
★★★☆☆ Aug 1, 2017 (van VIP, Grouptour) :
The van went out of diesel and the driver, that was new, didn't know how to open the deposit tank. We lost half an hour. Another problem is that we had to be at 6 at the office but it was closed (and remained close after we depart). The driver didn't understand a single word in English. Just one bottle of water and that's all. Positive points: the van is really a luxury van and comfortable. The road is slow and I guess for occidental drivers will call their attention the way the Vietnamese drive. Spectacular landscapes.
★★★★★ Jul 31, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Perfect bustrip to go to Sapa!
★★★★☆ Jul 31, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Userfriendly site. Worked perfectly to order your traintickets
★★☆☆☆ Jul 31, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Pumpkin Express) :
The ride with Pumpkin to Lao Cai ws not worth the premium price.
★★★★☆ Jul 30, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express)
★★★★☆ Jul 28, 2017 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
My wife's seat was broken and it was unable to move it and my place had the exit of the Aircon broken.
★★★★☆ Jul 24, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Orient Express)
★★★☆☆ Jul 21, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Fanxipan) :
Nice beds/"room", dirty toilet
★★★☆☆ Jul 12, 2017 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
Ride was good and comfortable mostly. But the aircon should've been colder and i had no headrest or blanket. Bus was neat and clean and we arrived on time (even though we departed a bit late).
★★★☆☆ Jul 11, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Orient Express) :
The train was fine, but it was not clear where at the station we had to be.
★★★★★ Jul 9, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Comfortable seats, snacks and water provided, occasional rest breaks but not too many, and the driver handled the wheel well
★★★★☆ Jul 7, 2017 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
Beside of the cracky wifi connection I enjoined the trip very much :)
★★☆☆☆ Jul 4, 2017 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
The bus was leaking water on my seat and my boyfriends so we were drenched the whole journey as it was pouring very heavily. The bus driver did nothing about it.
★★★★★ Jul 3, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Snelle manier om van Hanoi naar Sapa te rijden met luxe touringcar. Binnen 5.5 uur in Sapa met twee rustpauzes onderweg.
★★★☆☆ Jun 29, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Sapaly Express) :
Nice trip. Bed comfortable. Only problems are air conditioning old system noisy and impossible to adjust and badroom very little and uncomfortable. Maybe looking other companies for more confort
★★★☆☆ Jun 22, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Sapaly Express)
★★☆☆☆ Jun 14, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, Sapaly Express) :
Pros - Clean cabin - Soft bed - Good staff ------------ Cons - Extremely Noisy - Very bumpy, we couldnt get any sleep at all - Tickets are way too expensive for what you get. ----------- Verdict - Get a sleeper bus, its much cheaper. The whole point of sleeper train is to get some sleep, but its pointless and impossible to do that. We took a bus ride back from sapa to hanoi during day time and it was much better and cheaper.
★★★★☆ Jun 12, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Very easy trip, everything ran smoothly and the train was very clean/nice. The line is rocky but I slept well until we were woken up for tea/coffee about 15 mins before arriving.
★★☆☆☆ Jun 12, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Booking was very easy but don't expect first class cabin :)

★★★★★ May 9, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Awesome train ride. Nice and comfortable for the value.
★★☆☆☆ May 8, 2017 (van VIP, Grouptour) :
Late pickup at 8am instrad of 6.45am. Arrive late at 1.30pm. No wifi.
★★★★★ May 7, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways)
★★★★★ Apr 25, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Sapaly Express) :
We went to Sapa with night train of Sapaly Express. The beds ware clean. They gave us biscuts, water, coffee and te. The toilets was clean even in the morning. I recomand them. We slept very well and in the morning arrived in time in Sapa.
★★☆☆☆ Apr 21, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Chapa Express) :
Prijs kwaliteit benaming VIP sleeper onwaardig!
★★★★☆ Apr 18, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, Sapaly Express) :
We had a return ticket to Sapa. Booking over 12go.asia was nice and easy. On the way to Sapa we were in a 8B coach ant it was brilliant, however our return coach was 8A. It was much smaller and thus not that comfortable. All in all experience was good, would recommend.
★★★★☆ Apr 15, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Pumpkin Express) :
Train was great, a real adventure. Was rocky but bed very comfortable and slept well. Toilet and washing facilities are what you'd expect on a train but sufficient. 12go.asia were great for arranging the booking but the directions to the ticket office were misleading and we struggled at the station. Glad we arrived 1.5hrs before the train.
★★★★☆ Apr 13, 2017 (train #LC3 Class II AC, Vietnam Railways) :
Easy booking system. We took the daytime train from Hanoi to Lao Cai which cost 144,000 for AC. Very comfortable; food and drinks trolley kept coming round, good selection and good prices. Toilet was acceptable; no smell!
★★★★☆ Apr 10, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express) :
Generally it was a good trip. The bed was quite comfortable and clean. Some snacks and water were provided. Booking was very easy. Look out for local men who walks you to the ticket office area, calls someone for your tickets and then demand 100 000 dongs for their services. Also we had a booking for particular carriage and beds, but ended up moved to another carriage as ours was full. Moreover, we had to exchange booking voucher for the actual tickets with the "help" of a local guy even though the voucher says it can be used as a ticket.
★★★★★ Apr 7, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
All went smooth. Got the tickets, printed them, no hassle at the train station. Beds were as comfortable as can be expected. Ised one of the private cars on the way back,not worth the higher price.
★★★★☆ Apr 4, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express)

★★★☆☆ Mar 28, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Livitrans Express) :
the train was clean and comfortable, but at the raillstation was very difficult meet the righ train, nobady tell us information about the organization before the departure.
★★★☆☆ Mar 27, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Orient Express) :
The ride was ok and comfortable enough but if the price were lower, I were rate it higher.
★★★★☆ Mar 26, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Sleeping beds were really comfortable. Staffs on board were very helpful too! But restroom can definitely be improved.
★★★★★ Mar 21, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Very comfortable way to travel to Sapa. Wish western countries would have buses like these.
★★★★★ Mar 20, 2017 (van VIP, Grouptour) :
Very nice and comfortable! Highly recommended
★★★★★ Mar 16, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
By far the most comfortable transport we have had in a month of traveling SE Asia.
★★★☆☆ Mar 12, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper 4x, Orient Express) :
A bit worn carriage Ok trip ran on time and managed to sleep
★★★☆☆ Mar 11, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Orient Express) :
Oriental Express excessively overpriced for what you get. Toilets dreadful.
★★☆☆☆ Feb 20, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
I purchased a 2 bed VIP on sp4 and got put on car #13 last one. the train very old the door would not shut properly and it had 4 beds.I would not recommend Go Asia to book with.
12Go response:

Dear Catherine Fraser

We apologize for any misunderstanding but 2 bed VIP berths do not exist and we make this clear with pictures of the cabin and the following note which is shown during the booking process and on the receipt you receive:

IMPORTANT: On Vietnam Railways 1st Class Sleepers are 'soft' beds with four (4) berths per cabin. VIP
Sleepers with 2 berths per cabin are ONLY on the privately run railway cars.

★★★★★ Feb 11, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Goede bus met lekkere brede stoelen. Een verademing tov andere bussen.
★★★★★ Feb 10, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, King Express)
★★☆☆☆ Feb 9, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Orient Express) :
The train ride itself was not too bad. Would recommend paying extra and getting a private sleeper cabin if you are two people. The four sleeper cabins looked very cramped. Trying to find the place to collect tickets was a pain as there is more than one train station although only one train line. Most taxi drivers will take you to the wrong train station so make sure to show them the address.
★★★☆☆ Feb 5, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Very easy to book. Beds are quite hard and loud music was played randomly throughout the entire journey. Night trains are always an interesting experience! However it was an easy and reasonably comfortable way to travel.
★★★★★ Feb 3, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Comfortable busses, good price, two stops between Hanoi and Sapa. Free pick up in the Old Quarter.
★★★★★ Jan 31, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Most comfortable bus ever! And I have seen many of those. It's almost like Business class seats. Good service as well. Great trip especially in Asia.
★★★★★ Jan 27, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
It was a good, on time service. The train, bedding, toilet and wash area were all clean. Lighting is good. We were in a compartment for 4 people but one of the other beds was not used at all, and someone came on the 3rd bed for just a few hours, so mostly we had the compartment to ourselves which was nice. The beds are not quite long enough for moderately tall westerners, but we are in Asia so that is understandable. If someone is very tall then I think they might want to be aware of this.

★★★★★ Jan 21, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express)
★★★★★ Jan 20, 2017 (bus VIP, Sapa Express) :
Really good, great seats, got a snack and it was quick :)
★★★★★ Jan 15, 2017 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Quite apart from the fact that buying train tickets was 10x easier through this site than if I had had to do it myself (I don't speak Vietnamese), the information provided with the ticket was so helpful with directions to the station etc.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 15, 2017 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, King Express) :
Very small hardly any space, lack of room for suitcases. The toilets were disgusting. People in the next cabin were very noisy for hours into the night. Very shaky train and lots of stops. We booked 2 lower berths and one top berth but another person said they had a lower berth. Thankfully they let us have the lower beds. The good thing was the bed was comfortable. Staff very nice.

★★★★☆ Dec 30, 2016 (train #SP3 VIP Sleeper 4x, King Express)
★★★☆☆ Dec 26, 2016 (train #SP1 VIP Sleeper, Vietnam Railways) :
Booking process smooth and easy. Train was fine. Slept well. Bathroom was bad.
★★☆☆☆ Dec 24, 2016 (bus VIP Sleeper 41, Grouptour) :
Ticket office turned into a bar/restaurant so was unsure that we were even catching a bus. We were then collected an hour before stated ticket exchange time so lucky we were early. A man on a scooter then took us to three locations before we were in the right spot and caught bus. Bus facilities and ride was good but arrived at 4am and remained at the bus stop until 6am with no instructions. Only 'toilet' stop on the way was the side of a main road.
