Hoi An to Hue Destination Reviews

Everything was very nice but from our experience you need to be ready at least 30min before the depature as they usually leave earlier thank scheduled.
Van Van 11pax, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), Dec 8, 2023
We booked the bus at 3:30 pm but we had to wait another hour before we left. The ladies at the desk didn't say anything at all. When we finally got the sign that the bus was ready, we got in a car which stopped in Da Nang. Then we had to change to another bus which was very dirty and smelly. After a ride of 2 hours, the bus stopped at a dark gas station. The driver only said: get out. So we went out of the bus and a smaller bus brought us to the centre.

About 40 mins in a tiny car with three others. Backpacks on our lap, no where to put our legs before we got to the limousine. If we knew the limousine would leave from Da Nang we would’ve booked the train. Limousine seats broken, no tv

I put 4 stars because the support service and the office staff was very helpful and kind. However be aware that you are not allowed to sit wherever you want in the bus... We were in the back for the first half of the travel. Some people left the bus before us, and we were happy to take their seats, so it was less awful when the bus was going on difficult bumpy roads than in the back. We were shouted at by the driver when we tried to change seats. At the next stop, a mother got in with her son and we were 4 people in the back for 3 seats, with the 2 unoccupied seats before us that we were not allowed to take. So he could definitely have let us move.

It was good only it was a pitty there was no pickup from hotel

Exactly what we paid for
Bus Minibus 12, April Adventure (April Adventure), Oct 23, 2023
The driver was driving like crazy. We are used to the vietnamese driving but we almost crash with a truck because he was speeding. He stoped at his home or somewhere that looked like it to do something random with the streetlights. Also the bus had leakings and at the back seats we had water falling on our heads. The transfer at Da Nang was pretty smooth, but from Hoi An to there we went from a particular guy’s car. Everything pretty strange.
Van Van 11pax, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), Oct 16, 2023
Great vehicle and driver. But the web tell that the trip is about 1h 40m and its not true, is about 3h
Bus Minivan, Full Moon Party Tour (Full Moon Party Tour), Oct 10, 2023
I guess it’s normal but the driver was on Facebook and looking at his Instagram stories for the first half of the trip, and the second half he just sprinted like crazy almost running over a bunch of motorbikes. Other than that it was okay
Van Van 11pax, Techbus VN JSC (Techbus Vietnam Joint stock company), Sep 23, 2023
Started 1h later, dirty bus, unfriendly and it didn’t take about 1,5h as promised, it took us 3,5h like the other operators. Basically a whole lie…
