Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Mar 26, 2020
very slow and exhausting. every 1.5 hours the driver stopped. but overall staff was polite, spoke english and everything went smoothly

The bus was on time and in the border everything was smooth. Although operator representative on the bus didn't speak any English it was little bit hard to understand why they collected our passports and where to go but we followed some locals and did as they did. Basically they collected passports on the bus then gave them back before Camobodian border. We had to leave the bus and showed our passport when we got the stamp that we left Cambodia. Then before we got back to the bus the company's representator collected again our passports and we drove a little bit to enter Vietnam. Then we had to take our bags and went inside where representator dealed with passports. When everything was okay then we had to scan our bags and got back to the bus. We had multiple entry visa to Vietnam, so we didn't deal with the money.

The best bus journey I’ve ever taken! They checked and printed out visas for ya, gave us food and water and there was a lot of legroom!
MT
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Feb 27, 2020
Bus was comfortable (generous leg room!) and staff was friendly. We left almost on time (just about 10 mins late), but arrived about two hours late. (This seems to be par for the course given other reviews, so we were expecting that.) Border crossing (Cambodia -> Vietnam) was easy; you can opt to pay $2 for the bus attendant to process your e-visa or skip lunch to stand in line yourself. Remember to print your e-visa before you board; a few couples on our bus had their e-visas on their phones and we had to wait for them to print them. One bathroom stop in Cambodia and then one bathroom/lunch stop at the border. Would take Giant Ibis again.

Comfortable journey and was helped through border crossing. Previous giant ibis buses provided us with lunch and more drinks, whereas we had to buy our own lunch this time. Regardless, would highly recommend.

We arrived an hour before which was excellent! It was nice to be in a minivan - especially when we got to the border cause we did’nt had to wait for the entire bus at the border to pass - but just s small group since we travelled in a minivan! So I all went quite Quick and smoothly. Allthough, they were really bad at giving out information. Especially when we had to hand over our passport to them for a while which was quite uncomfortable. But later we understood that they did it to make the process faster :-)

Easiest border crossing ever, helpful staff
RN
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Jan 28, 2020
The driving was fine and stops were short and sweet. I didn't like having to pay an extra 3 dollars at the border though seeing as the visa was already 45.

Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Jan 25, 2020
The aircon wasn't good enough. Otherwise very comfortable journey
HL
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Jan 23, 2020
The bus was good and we have found this multiple times. We did stop a little more than expected though to pick up odd passengers along the way
JA
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Jan 22, 2020
We ran about 1 1/2 hrs late. Ride was comfortable and the drivers were good.

Great job! We moved through immigration quickly and effortlessly. The air conditioned however barely works. Riders were sweating. .

I don’t mind to pay the extra to avoid bullshits but the bus still left 20’ late, and picked up someone on the way.

The trip is fine. Just got confused why have stop and eat lunch around 15:00 near the border.

Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Jan 2, 2020
Got bad stomachs from the restaurant at the boarder, be careful about what you order! Bus trip it self went well, nice with internet on board...the driver has an aggressive drive style, but that seems to be common

It was not a luxury travel as advertised, make sure you take mosquito repellent.

One point deduction due to a 30-minute late departure. Everything else was smooth.

I read a lot of negative stuff about this company, however decided to go with them anyway because the timing fitted. They left half hour early, luckily I ti was early! I had almost all the Coach h to myself. The AC was working. The staff were pleasant and did not ask me for any additional money. The crossing was really easy. Took around 7 hours. I would do travel with them again. I have no complaints whatsoever ????

Bus Standard AC, Kumho Samco, Dec 11, 2019
The bus is on time & safe drive. The service staff on the bus really helps us in passing immigration. But, they dropped us or ended up the way at public bus station and they didn’t go to their own bus station. The consequence is that we had problems with the motorbike drivers from the bus station they dropped us. The motorbike drivers cheated on hiring price to us and the motorbike drivers are rude. They wear blue shirt and red labelled seal on their arm. I didn’t expect they would do like that. ????

Bus is ok but we arrived late :(
AZ
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Dec 8, 2019
Everything is cool! I don't know why on google maps they have a real low rating. Before departure the girl checked all passwords and some people left the bus because they didn't have visas. ON board everything were organised and no problem at all. 90% of travellers were foreigners. The bus came to Vietnam 3 hours late schedule time& Staff can speak english! Recommend

Bus Standard AC, Kumho Samco, Dec 4, 2019
Helped with getting an express visa for one of my group that had the wrong one and didn't even charge us for moving on to a later bus. Bus was comfortable and, although a little late arriving, was perfect for what it needed to do. Stopped off twice for toilets and snacks too. Amazing for the price!

Super Bus, tolle Sitze, es waren richtig bequeme große Sessel! Sehr günstiger Preis! Wir mussten die Pässe abgeben, sie lagen aber die ganze Zeit vorne beim Fahrer, also kein Grund zur Panik. Und keinerlei "Gebühr" oder ähnliches am Grenzübergang. Der Bus hat keine Toilette dafür wurden aber Pausen gemacht. Außerdem pünktlich abgefahren und angekommen! Ich war sehr positiv überrascht.

Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Nov 27, 2019
the trip was ok and exactly as “forecasted.” late arrival, messy and well, i am just glad it wasn’t me dealing with all these unprepared tourists. thank god driver was composed and well collected the whole time. his assistant on the other hand not so much — and who is to blame him? the adventure was ok, really! i just wish i had known that by requesting to be taken to the airport versus the stop in town, i was not to be just dropped off on the side of the road two miles away from the actual airport. TWO MILES! wifi on the bus never did work. so i had no clue where the heck i was. i just trusted that i was being dropped off near the airport. not! luggage, lunch box, shopping bags and live chickens on tow, i accepted a ride onboard a motorbike. oh my! that was for sure the highlight of my SE asia experience. haha #rushhour 1. no wifi 2. just dropped off ????

Bus Express, The SinhTourist, Nov 23, 2019
Not recommended. We had a hard time finding the boarding point as the google map coordinates indicated in the ticket are incorrect. It took us 40 minutes to find it. The bus is relatively old and needs some rennovation. The bus staff is also not accomodating, Given other options, will not book this one

Excellent staff and comfortable seats
MT
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Nov 23, 2019
Ride was nice and staff friendly but we were forced to pay an extra $2,each to process our evisa when the visa website itself says that it is just a scam and we shouldn’t be having any other charges! Would love to get our money back!

Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Nov 22, 2019
Not the newest of buses and had to swap buses due to the paperwork being 4 days out of date for it (the bus) to enter Vietnam. This was done quickly and efficiently causing no more than a 10 minute delay, all credit to the staff. The border crossing process was exactly as described in other posts. The only difference being that we were uk passport holders staying for less than 15 days, therefore visa exempt with no fee to pay. Only docked a star due to the age of the bus.

Relaxing with good environment with air con. Stopped for a break as well as lunch. Will be using Giant Ibis over other companies as they are reliable, easy to find and helpful staff. The border stop was easy and relaxed.

Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Nov 20, 2019
The bus was an hour late picking us up from the bus depot but once the bus got there it was smooth sailing. The team is super helpful with information about the trip itself and visa help. There were some people on the bus who didn’t have visas (which is an expensive mistake to make as its $200 USD for rush visa) and they made the process very smooth for them. At the border they collect your passports and visas and help you through the express line which was great! Overall they are a great company and we would defiantly use them in the future!

It was a bit hot in the bus but aside from that everything was ok. It went smooth in the immigration.

Exactly what I expected. Staff were very friendly and made the crossing a simplistic easy task.

We went from Phnom Penh to ho chi Minh city. Good transport with free bottle of water and croissant. There is a long 1hr break after you cross the Cambodian border. With the evisa we had to pay $2 but it's was very straight forward crossing the border. The full journey took about 8 hours. Leaving at 9.50 and arriving after 17.30.

Left 15 minutes late as the bus wasn't in. Arrived nearly 90 minutes late. Border crossing was smooth and there is a good duty free shop.
SM
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Oct 28, 2019
Things you should know: you have to pay a $2 fee to have your visa processed by the rep on the bus, this means the entire bus load passes through quickly as one big group. When you cross the Cambodian border they will take your passport, visa and the $2 from you, go off and sort the paperwork out for the entire group, meanwhile you have about 20mins in a duty free store to get lunch/bathroom/browse the shops. When you get back on the bus and drive the 100m to the Vietnam border, you have to get off and the rep will meet you inside with your passports which have already been checked, so all you have to do is scan your luggage and walk through with very limited waiting time. They are very efficient and trustworthy, so if you know what's happening you have no need to feel wary about giving over your passport. Bus is comfy, has WiFi and AC and you get a water and pastry.

Bus Standard AC, Kumho Samco, Oct 26, 2019
The bus itself was awesome but the staff needs some improvements. They did warn me that this company is a local bus and I shouldn’t expect any VIP treatments but come on, a little information about the border and when we should eat and how long we stop at some places in basic english were not some hard things to provide right?
GS
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Oct 22, 2019
Look lets be honest. All buses are late particularly in Asia, but at least they make it a nicer experience with in bus chargers, water, pastries and a bit of comfort. The guy looked after all the border crossing headaches and it was just a nice bus trip. Well recommended
LM
Bus Universe Luxury, Giant Ibis Transport, Oct 18, 2019
Friendly staff, bus left a couple minutes late but otherwise no problems, wifi on the bus aswel as pastry and water provides. No issue with using EVisa to cross border into vietnam, had to pay just additional $2 for "police fees" but process very smooth. A good bit late arriving to HCM but I think that was mainly due to rush hour traffic and a slight underestimation of transit time.
