Hanoi to Ninh Binh Destination Reviews

The bus was incredibly late. We were told it was a 9am bus, and some people who were on a 9.30am bus also were waiting with us. The staff were incredibly unhelpful, and constantly would repeat "5 more minutes" when asked. This was not the service we paid for

I have nothing bad to say about Sao Viet’s VIP sleeper bus and would strongly recommended them to and from Sa Pa

Train left on time and arrived early. The train itself was old but had A/C as well as snacks and meals sold onboard. Overall it was a good experience.

Driver and driving good and pickup point close to my GH in Hanoi so all was perfect…. Communication after I purchased the trip until I was excellent

We travelled about 2hrs from Hanoi to Tam Coc, our driver was excellent throughout. He arrived 10 mins before the pick up time in a clean, comfortable 4x4 and drove very safely and professionally the whole journey. When we stopped at about the hour mark, he even bought us some pringles, which was a really nice gesture. We had an excellent journey and would certainly recommend the driver and servicer.

Overbooked first car, so a girl had to sit og her boyfriends lap... Took os to another company in Hanoi to real minibus The ride from Hanoi to Ninh Binh was fine, in the promised "Limousine Van" with good A/C and a bottle of water. No stops tho, and crazy driving, even more crazy than other drivers. From Ninh Binh to Tao Coc was yet another car, but this ride was fine. Overall a wierd experience, drivers knew no English and the first two drove like crazy.

Got picked up from the location on time.

The bus was delayed and there was a bit of disorganization, but that is something that happens frequently here in Southeast Asia. But overall, it was fine.
Bus Express 16, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), May 19, 2024
Car was great. However, the rest of the experience was horrible. We get picked up and then pursue to pick up the rest of the people who is driving with us. I understand that this is part of the service, but it took as long as the trip itself as we were the first to get picked up. More than an hour in Hanoi morning traffic. We finally get to the Van, which have to get us to Tam coc. This van was great as said before, but when the driver chooses to drive more than 210km/h and uses the horn everytime he passes another car, then the comfort is not compensating the slighest bit. A side note for recommendation - please give some guidelines on how to behave as a pasenger. There was a guy doing multiple phone calls (around 10), screaming into the phone on every call. I get you want to kill time, and you are of course allowed to talk on the phone or it might be nessecary - But calling your whole family and friends - and then ignore the fact that there are other people in the van who doesn’t give one damn, then please recommend them to buy there own private transportation if they are that important.
