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.
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.
The car is very clean and safe driver ! recommend.
