van VIP, Truly Hagiang, Mar 17, 2020
Driver did not have our names, so he had to confirm first, that we were meant to be picked up by him; we did not get to Hanoi directly but were gathered somewhere else; we arrived 30 minutes late

Train was good, but 12go Asia charges too much. Train itself costs 100k, 12go Asia charges 181k plus service costs. Too much.

Swapped transport 3 times!! A car, then the mini bus that's shown on photo, then a 40 minute taxi ride. This was never explained during booking and was so annoying!

van VIP, Truly Hagiang, Feb 13, 2020
It took quite some time to pick up all the passengers. And no communication with driver, not even a word in English. They just sent one random car for us, to drive us to the van. In the middle of hanoi, the driver sennt us to one random car. Of course nobody knew English from them so we had no idea what is going on.

van VIP, Truly Hagiang, Feb 8, 2020
Hard to identify the van as it was not marked 'Truly Hagiang' as per the picture on our booking form. The driver did not speak English and luckily my husband could converse with him in Vietnamese. It took a while to pick up all the other guests and by the time we got back to Hanoi it was half an hour later than the time advised. The actual trip was quite uncomfortable due to the driver constantly beeping and accelerating - not a smooth ride.
