Sapa to Hanoi Destination Reviews

About the company I value it as very good, but the driver was more than lousy. Apart from leaving an hour late, the driver stopped several times to pick up people who did not have a seat in the middle of the road, he stopped to smoke, in Lao Caí we were waiting 25 minutes, he smoked inside the bus when it says that you cannot smoke. .and we had a flight that same afternoon (we were going with almost 3 hours of margin) that we managed to catch thanks to the fact that the company told the driver to leave us at the airport (1.5 km away we had to take a taxi)

The van was new and safe, but we started one hour later than stated on our booking schedule and have to call two times to get information about the delay. At the end, the driver dropped us off at the airport with a delay of about half an hour

The ride itself was fine but we didn't get a confirmation for the ride so the day before we had to go to the office in Sapa and find out what was going on. At first I was told that the bus was cancelled and that I would need to book a different bus through the lady working there. I said If it was cancelled they needed to tell 12go so that I could be reimbursed. I insisted she call her company to find out what was going on. After a few phone calls I was told to check my email and that a confirmation would be there. I did and the confirmation was there. So after being told it was cancelled I guess they decided to run it after all??? Not too sure but we were the only ones in the bus.

Bus was late and we almost mist our transfer. Also the bus had no leg space. Thanks to the help of the driver we got of first so we did make it!

Driver drive very hard and sometimes he did very dangerous moves on the way!
Van VIP, Grouptour (Công ty du lịch quốc tế Grouptour), Nov 28, 2019
We can not recommend this company. When we arrived at the meeting point at the agreed time, no one was there. Later, the manager came and said that we had to wait another 30 minutes. The advertising "Luxury Van" promises an upscale service, which is not provided. The photos do not correspond to the facts. Our vehicle had 300000 km on the clock, which is probably why they don't want to do more than 80 km/h on the highway. Only on the curvy stretch near Sapa one has then no more time. In the confidence of no oncoming traffic is also overtaken sometimes in the outer curve!

A comfortable seamless service

When getting on the bus, there is a pickup to the hotel, which is convenient. Since the drop-off was not in the Old Quarter, the driver dropped us off near our hotel and stopped the cab for us. However, the time was delayed due to the nationality of the country, and we arrived in Hanoi about an hour late.

A/C was good and trip was safe but the bus was an hour late and by the time we got on the bus we were stuck at the back where seats don't recline and ride quite bumpy

How to get from Sapa to Hanoi by Van

Van is a convenient option to get from Sapa to Hanoi. Van tickets are affordable, vans are generally do a faster job than buses, vans offer a good choice of departures.

Depending on the van type, each vehicle can accommodate between 12 and 15 passengers. Yet an evident drawback of travelling by van is limited space for the luggage. In most cases you will need to keep your bags, backpacks or suitcases under your seat or in the aisle. Thus van is not the best choice if you travel with huge luggage. F this is the case, consider buying a separate ticket for your bags or choose bus instead.

On certain routes, vans are your only choice of transportation as no buses, trains or flights are available between those destinations.

It is a popular question whether it is necessary to book van tickets in advance. Though some routes feature a lot of departures, we still highly recommend booking your seat especially if you are going to take one of the last vans of the day; travelling during weekends, public holidays or busy tourist seasons; are in a group of two or more and want to travel on the same van.

Here is the list of companies that run regular vans between Sapa and Hanoi and offer tickets for online booking.

How far is from Sapa to Hanoi?

How long does it take to get from Sapa to Hanoi by Van?

Before booking your van tickets, check how long the trip with each operator takes as some vans follow longer routes to Hanoi or make detours.

Also, it is important to know that van companies that accept online booking offer scheduled van departures; yet there are also some vans which depart only when full, and in certain cases the waiting period can be long. Thus choosing an operator that runs vans on a set schedule is always a better idea.

Having your entire group together for a long trip can add to the enjoyment. This can allow your group to discuss and even sing to your heart's content without fear of bothering others.

Just like taxis, the advantage of travelling by van is that you can ask the driver to stop by stores, supermarkets and other establishments.
