Airport and Halong Bay Transfer

We had 4 adults and 4 kids, booked 16 seater van which was just nice for 8 of us and 6 pieces of luggage. The driver who picked us from airport, to and fro Halong Bay wasn't too friendly but still drove safely. The driver who sent us to airport on the last day was nice and appreciative. Anna responded swiftly to my enquiries and request for her to settle an issue during the return leg from Halong Bay. Thank U Anna and HTS! 🙂

For the last three years, each and every time I landed in Ha Noi or left town from the airport I have been using this service provider through Anna.

Booking is simple, effective, never had a late driver and cars I have had were always impeccable (no comparison with regular taxis or Grab). As soon as you pay you immediately get a detailed receipt and most if not all credit cards are accepted.

The price is higher than the Hanoi <=> Airport public bus but in the same range or cheaper than taxis and Grab who will always find excuses to bump their price frequently to very unreasonable levels.

So far, an excellent service from Anna’s prompt responses to pickup and safe driving by smiling drivers.


We used Hanoi Transfer Service for all of our transfers during our trip, including Hanoi, Da Nang and Hoi An. They were a pleasure to deal with at every step, they were always on time and their vehicles were clean, well maintained and well driven. Even when I thought I had left my Kindle in the vehicle they were very responsive and supportive.

Price request

No issues. The service was safe and reliable. They even arranged a last minute pickup. Lily, the assistant, was very helpful. I would recommend and will take again.
