Bus VIP-Class, Trang An Limousine, Oct 13, 2020
Professional efficient and clean. Some of the other travelers were gross (coughing and hacking into the air) but that's cultural.

Excellent service by Chapa Express. Beds a bit short for large people and ride quite shaky.

Comfortable, good value for money. Very handy drop off in Tam Coc. Driver asked for money but our tickets were prepaid. He backed off with a firm no. Not sure if he was just chancing his luck on a double payment.

Train had the loudest music blasting when we boarded had to put in earplugs. Luckily the music stopped once we were underway...on time. The soft seats were fine for the short ride.

van VIP, Grouptour, Jan 2, 2020
We had no problems whatsoever. Everything went as stated on the confirmation we got from 12Go. There were a few pick-ups and stops along the way with local Vietnamese getting on. I'm sure we paid more than them but this is to be expected, there's always a tourist price vs local price in developing countries in general in all our experience traveling. The ride was comfortable for us and our 2 kids.

The train ride was very comfortable, and the station staff were very helpful. Booking with 12go was super easy and I would highly recommend it as the Vietnam railway site does not accept foreign credit cards.

The train was on time and the seats were ok. But the cleanliness needs to be improved. The whole compartment smelled like pee the whole time. I guess the toilets weren't cleaned.
