van VIP, Grouptour, Aug 24, 2019
Was very average, seats comfortable, we paid for V.I.P don’t know what was V.I.P about it, and priority support, don’t know what that included,the address on our confirmation email was wrong? Not sure the lady working there just said the van couldn’t pick us up from here, so we had to be taken by grab to the other address, the lady working there did organise the lift so I guess that’s something. the receptionist in hanoi at the second address, was quite abrupt and it was uncomfortable to sit in there and wait for the van, we had to jump into a different van from ninh binh to get to tam coc. And they left our bags in the other van, and nearly drove of without them. Because of the language barrier we also didn’t know if we were meant to get on the next van or what was going on, all very confusing. We were dropped in tam coc, about 5 minutes out from our hotel which was great, but since of the language barrier, there was no communication as to where we were. Lucky they have grab and we called a car to come take us to our hotel

Train was very punctual, facilities are ok. But there were a lot of cockroaches in the cabin. Without the cockroaches, it would easily be a 4-star rating.

van VIP, Grouptour, Jul 26, 2019
First we went from an agency by taxi to the pick up point somewhere in de city. We had no information where to go. The driver could have dropped us at any place. And the busdriver brought I think half his family with him to Ninh Binh. And he was driving like crazy on the highway. Very often he was driving just a few meter from the car in front of us at the speed of 120 km per hour.

We had a first class cabin, but it didn't seem like it. There were no curtains to have a bit of privacy and it was very noisy late at night and early in the morning. The train was on time though and it was clean.

van VIP, Grouptour, Jul 22, 2019
Firstly, we paid a lot more than others on board. I understand that we booked through an umbrella company and that there would be a service charge but we paid more than double what the locals on the bus paid. We were late both leaving Hanoi and Ninh Binh. When leaving Hanoi, we followed the instructions on the ticket and went to the office we were told to go to. Luckily we were early as we were then told we were at the wrong place. The woman there was very kind however and booked and paid for a taxi to take us to the correct place. When we arrived at the second office, we were told again we were at the wrong place and that we should have stayed at the first office. However, after discussions with other members of staff, we were told we were okay to stay. The staff then appeared to have a disagreement about what bus we were booked on and we were ushered between the 2. Finally, they agreed and we waited for a mini bus to pick us up. The bus was fine and comfortable and we appreciated the bottled water given to us on board. When we arrived to Ninh Binh, we were told to get off at the office there. I explained that we had organised to get dropped off at our hotel in Trang An. They then ushered us quite angrily in to the office. I totally understand that there was a language barrier, and that is fine, but I did not appreciate the way we were pushed around. After about 10 minutes we were ushered again to get into another bus. The driver was very angry and gave us instructions by pointing and shouting. Our luggage was thrown on board and we left the office. When we arrived to the hotel, the driver didn’t want to drive down the lane so told us we needed to get out and walk. At first we thought that maybe it was unaccessible by car but the large car park at the end of the lane and next to the hotel suggested otherwise. The day before we were due to leave Ninh Binh, our hotel kindly called the taxi company to confirm that we would be picked up at 8:10 and the company said that this was correct. On the day of our departure, our driver called to say that there would be a 10 minute delay and we were okay with this. Once we were picked up, it appeared that he was picking others up around Ninh Binh. I understand that this is a taxi service and that was his job, but we were due to leave Ninh Binh at 8:10 and were already late. When we arrived at the office in Ninh Binh, again we were forcefully ushered around and it wasn’t clear what was happening. I asked a member of staff, showing my booking confirmation and ticket to aid with the language barrier. He then spoke in Vietnamese to his colleagues, they all laughed and I was pointed to sit down. We were then shouted at and told that our bus was here and to get on.

Service from 12go.asia to purchase tickets was quick and hassle free. Airconditioning was not really working - seats were very comfortable- most passengers were great travellers however one Vietnamese man was clearly intoxicated, loud, aggressive and brought his dog on the train - staff allowed this inspite of clear regulations on tickets and spoken over loudspeaker. Thankfully the dog who was quite scared itself didn’t bite anyone. Scenery was pleasant and it was an interesting way to travel in Vietnam.

Trip was great and on time. The only downside is that the AC isn't consistent and sometimes it gets pretty hot in the train (Around 30 degrees) before the AC kicks in

train #SE5 Class II Sleeper AC, Vietnam Railways, Jun 5, 2019
I had a 2nd class sleeper for the 2hr 20min trip from Hanoi to Ninh Binh as all seats booked out. Shared the cabin with a young family who pretty much slept from 9am-10.30am then got off. I spent most time in the hallway looking out the window. Not much room for my backpack as it wouldn't fit under the bunk. I got a little reprimand from the guard for putting it on a corner in the passageway...
