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!

Pleased with the transfer time,could have been reassured we were on the correct minibus after getting off once onto another bus then back off and back on the original bus,but we got there.

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.

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.

Comfortable and affordable way to travel between Hanoi and Ninh Binh. The train aisle was very spacious, seats were comfortable for the short ride. I love that they include two plug sockets at every row to allow people to charge their electronic devices throughout the journey.

Not as nice as the train I took from Hanoi, carriages were older and not as comofortable. However, train was on time and everything worked.

The train was very punctual. Air conditioner worked fine, however the cleanliness of the train needs to be improved. We spotted some baby cockcroaches beside the window. We were not shocked but it somehow affected our level of comfort during the train journey from Hanoi to Ninh Binh. Otherwise everything was fine throughout!

van VIP, Truly Hagiang (Du lich Á châu), Nov 17, 2019
Whole transfer was full of confusion! Although we waited for 75 minutes at the meeting point, bus driver #1 obviously couldn't find us... Later we were picked up by driver #2, but had to change the bus at Ninh Binh. In the end, we arrived 1.5 hours behind schedule in Hanoi. Only positive: the service staff tried to give support via WhatsApp, but half an hour after actual departure...

Journey was ok but operator tried to amend original plan. After several emails we managed to maintain initial itinerary.

van VIP, Truly Hagiang (Du lich Á châu), Nov 1, 2019
Pick up was confusing as we were picked up initially in a car that was unmarked with company name and the bus we went to also didn't have to company name from 12 go Asia. Recommend making these match or give the driver a sign to hold whe meeting customers.

Train #SE20 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Oct 27, 2019
Train was on time and crew were friendly and made it easy to find our ‘more spacious than an aeroplane’ seats. The train itself is dated and a bit rickety but we made it to Hanoi at the correct time. The only criticism is that the toilets are absolutely foul (as you might expect from trains/Asia) best cross your legs! Otherwise a great way to travel.

Erg vol. Redelijk gare stoelen en een lucht in de coupe waar je niet vrolijk van werd.

The train conductor kept a little dog in a cage right below our seat - the dog stank really bad and was noisy, so it was not enjoyable at all... There is no space for large luggage.

Was a short ride from Ninh Binh to Hanoi, so cannot comment on comfort much but it didn’t seem too shaky. Basket for items stated would be complimentary was empty, and the berth opposite me was left dirty. Overall fairly clean and would take Lotus Train again, just need to pay a little more attention to details. 12go service was easy to use and will use for future bookings.

Train was delayed for about 30 minutes. Overall journey was OK. If only the train staffs could speak English, it would have been better. Train staff couldn't be bothered to offer us food as they could not speak English. The soft seat 2nd Class coach was comfortable.

Journey was fine. Only con for me was the music/announcement which comes on as you come into Hanoi was ridiculously loud. So loud it made a baby cry! All good apart from that though.

Train #SE8 2nd Class AC seats only, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Aug 27, 2019
Train was delayed by 50 minutes but overall it was a relatively comfortable journey. They serve different foods on the train and water is provided. At times they played loud Vietnamese music from train speakers which is a bit odd. The only awful part is the arrival at Hanoi station: taxi drivers are like vultures. On the Grab app you cannot specify 4 seater so decided to walk to the hotel instead.

Train got broken ???? Was really hoping to ride the sleeper train, but they gave us an option to either wait for the next train or ride a bus.

Smooth process. Train was nicely air conditioned which was greatly appreciated given it was 35 degrees outside. - Departed on time. A positive experience.

Train #SE20 1st Class Sleeper, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), Aug 10, 2019
The train was delayed 1 hr and when we boarded the train the carriage had not been cleaned. After 40 minutes or so the staff came and provided us with new sheets for the bed. The toilets are really terrible, no paper no soap nothing. They absolutely stink. Overall the train ride is a nice way to get around and see things along the way. Would recommend just for the experience.

Train

Train is a often a great choice for long-haul travel especially if you opt for a night sleeper train with berths which will allow you to sleep all your journey through. To make the most of your train journey, choose the class of your ticket wisely.

Note that there are air-conditioned and fan-only carriages; private compartments for 2 or 4; hard and soft seats.
Though the upper class you get the smoother is your journey, often second class air-conditioned or fan-only sleepers are a good money saving alternative.

Van

Things to remember: When travelling by van with huge luggage buying a separate seat for your suitcase or backpack is a good idea. Do not expect there is a roomy luggage compartment in a van - there is actually none and your fellow passengers are unlikely to appreciate your luggage stuck under their feet, alas.
