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.

Nice service

Tracy Pham handled my booking and was very professional throughout. It was quick and fuss-free, and she arranged a very spacious van to pick us up. Ride was comfortable, driver was great as well, recommend using their service if you're heading to Hanoi!

Very happy reliable service, easy to deal with Anna

I conversed with Anna via email to set up the transportation from a hotel in Halong Bay to Bai Dinh garden resort. She was responsive and stayed in touch the whole time. She provided driver name, car plate, and estimated time the day before pick up. The driver came on time and the car was clean and the usual.

  1. We will be in Halong Bay for a day and we would like to hire a 7 seater van to take us around sight seeing for the day. Could you advise if this is possible as I have noted that your service is from Hanoi to Halong Bay? Also would you suggest taking a cruise boat, or a car would be able to take us to the same places.
    Thank you,

  2. I would like to enquire the private car from Hanoi airport to Halong bay, to and fro – 2 ways.. How much does it cost?

  3. I would like to know:

    (1) Is 8:30am the earliest time we can get the private car? My hotel is can we arrange the pick up to Halong Bay on 21-June from there to Halong Bay?

    (2) How much does it cost for a day return, meaning going from Hanoi to Halong Bay early morning, then from Halong Bay to Hanoi in the evening/night (like reach to Hanoi around 9pm?) – Is it possible?

    (3) If so, a day trip from Hanoi – Halong Bay in the morning and return in the evening, how much does it cost? We’re 3 people so that would be 4-seats car, but it’s said 2 days for $130, 1 day for $79, how about one day from Hanoi and Halong Bay, and return at the same day (evening) from Halong Bay to Hanoi? How much would it cost?
