  1. Excellent service from Hura Cars. I found their website through Trip Advisor and booking an SUV to take us from Hue to Hoi An was very easy.
    Huy picked us up from our hotel on time and carried our large suitcase to the car. The car was very clean, comfortable and had chilled bottles of water for us. Huy was very knowledgeable and a safe driver. He gave us tips on where to go in Hoi An and short history lessons en route.
    Unfortunately, there had been a car accident on the Hai Van pass which meant it was closed and we had to go through the tunnel instead, which was a shame, but Huy was very apologetic and kept our spirits up.
    Definitely, recommend getting in touch with Hura Cars if you need a transfer.

  2. We really enjoyed our trip from Hue to Hoi An with Huy. We were picked up from our hotel promptly and the car was comfy and cool. The views on the way were beautiful and Huy was very informative about Hoi An and Vietnam. We ate in the places he recommended in Hoi An and they were great.
    Huy stopped for us on the way to take photos of the Hai van pass and we also stopped off to see the Marble Mountain where we got to spend time looking around here.
    Overall a great trip and a nice convenient, comfy and informative ride. We would book again.

  3. Transport from Hue to Hoi An. We book before 3 months and no need to remind, Hoang, call us before 1 day and send our driver contact. Driver Ngoc was on time and very attentive. Good safe driver all the way. Excellent service.

  4. we book 2 transfer between Hue and Hoi An with Hoang via Whatsaap, he is nice guys and very helpful to suggest and recommend for us the itinerary. The driver is always punctual, polite. Great job! Highlight recommend this company

  5. This was a lovely relaxing and comfortable way to see the Hai Van pass on the way from hue to Hoi An. We were very lucky to get a nice driver called Mr. Lin. He had good English and is constantly studying to improve. I wish we had him instead of other tour guides who were supposedly professional throughout Vietnam. Mr Lin is also a very safe driver and he had a lot of knowledge of where we were traveling to. He also knew all the best spot for pictures and the car was amazingly clean and cool. If you travel with Hura you’ll really enjoy the trip and enjoy it even more with Mr Lin.

  6. Wir hatten einen tollen Tag – obwohl wir wirklich sehr kurzfristig buchten, hat alles perfekt geklappt – wie gewünscht und ausgemacht!
    Unser Fahrer Huy war sehr zuvorkommend, hatte viele Informationen über Land & Leute und machte unseren Trip rundum perfekt!
    Wir waren als 4- köpfige Familie unterwegs von Hue inkl. Sightseeing über den Wolkenpass nach Hoi An und retour noch Danang- alles Perfect in Time
    Danke an Huy und die Agentur!
    Thomas, Petra & Familie

  7. We needed to travel as fast as possible from Hue to Hoi An today. On the website of Huracars, we immediately got in contact by chat and arranged a private driver, where a taxi costs a lot moren. The super friendly driver, drives safe and did a good job finding our hotel in Hoi An. Perfect.

  8. We rented a private car from Hue to Hoi An and Bach Ma National Park in a day.
    The Manager, Mr Hoang, was very prompt in his replies over email and suggested an itinerary for us based on our requirements. Our driver Mr Huy was polite and patient as he waited for us to trek through the park.
    Overall, a relaxing and fun trip. also many thanks for adding in our last minute request to stop by a bakery to get breakfast 🙂

  9. We did the one way private car from Hue to Hoi An, and had a wonderful time. Booking was very easy to coordinate the details via Whatsapp through Mr.Hoang after making the initial inquiry on their website. Mr. Huy was our driver for the day and was prompt for pickup from our Airbnb with bottled waters ready for us in the car. The car was very comfortable which made the day trip that more enjoyable. He was great at answering our questions and giving us some insight about the history and culture of the areas we visited. He even gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and tailors to checkout in Hoi An. We had such a great experience, we’re hoping to use them again in a few days for an airport transfer. Overall, I would highly recommend Huracars as their service from start to finish was A+ Also, if you can, get Mr. Huy for a driver; he’s awesome!

  10. Communication via email was efficient and easy when making the booking for a car and driver to transfer me and my family from our hotel in Hue to our hotel in Hoi An. Our driver, Bin, turned up on time in a very clean car and provided bottles of water. Our first request was to stop at a pharmacy, as my husband was suffering with an upset stomach and Bin was more than happy to do this. He also told my two teenage daughters how to connect to the on board WiFi which was a big hit! Bin drove very carefully and spoke good English, pointing out things of interest on our journey. We made a couple of stops for photos but as my husband wasn’t well, I asked Bin to skip Marble Mountain and get us to Hoi An as quickly as possible. He was happy to accommodate us and when we arrived in Hoi An, he left us with kind wishes for my husband’s speedy recovery. I would highly recommend using Hura cars.

  11. Got the service of Hura Cars for our Da Nang to Hue, Hue to Hoi An, and Hoi An to Da Nang transfers. All our drivers were very punctual, friendly and accommodating. On our way to Hue, I had an accident at Hai van pass lookout and injured by head. Our driver, Anh, brought us to the nearest hospital and assisted us in Emergency Room of the hospital since hardly anybody spoke English. At the same time, our contact at Hura Cars’, Hoang, assisted our driver by giving advance notice to the hospital. Hoang also visited us while in Hue and monitored our trip until the day we left.

  12. Hello Hoang, my friend Dianne Connell and I wanted to say how fantastic Lan was for our trip from Hue to Hoi An. He was so good, drove very safely in a nice car, very good English, pointing out interesting things on the way, good sense of humour, stopping whenever we wanted to take photos, very patient with the ‘old ladies’ opening doors for us. Also because his English was so good we were able to ask him things about life in Vietnam which we hadn’t been able to do with anyone before. Excellent.

  13. We hired the Hura car with driver from Hue to Hoi An through their website. Their response came in minutes later, and confirmation was emailed to us.

    On the following morning, the car arrived at our Airb&b home half an hour earlier than the appointment time of 9.00am. As we were not quite ready yet, the driver Mr Toan waited for us patiently till 9.00am.

    Once we were inside the car, we told Toan that we didn’t have our breakfast yet. Upon hearing this, he drove us to a nice restaurant nearby. Really appreciate his understanding and friendly gesture.

    Along the way, he brought us to different attractions such as Hai Van Pass, Lap An Lagoon, Marble Mountain as advertised. He tried his best to explain to us the pertinent points of the respective attractions in simple English. We can understand him well enough.

    Enroute to Hoi An, he made an elaborate afford to cross the famous Dragon Bridge in Danang. Also, he slowed down the car so that we can take picture of the bridge.

    In summary, Hura Cars had delivered what they promised/advertised. Their response to our enquiry were prompt, and the driver had shown professionalism and dedication in his job.

    I’d recommend Hura Cars to anyone who wants to hire a private car with driver from Hue to Hoi An.

  14. This was so easy to book and was quickly confirmed, everything ran so smoothly, the car was great for our family of 4 and our driver Tan (or Tiger) was so professional, gave us lots of really unique insights into Vietnam as well as the journey across the hills to Hoi An. We really loved our adventures. I probably would avoid elephant springs if doing the trip again, it was just SO busy. Thanks Tan for a great drive, would definitely recommend.

  15. This was an absolute must do trip!
    We got picked up from our hotel in Hue and driven to HoiAn with so many amazing stops along the way – including a lagoon, secluded beach, view point, marble hill. The scenery is stunning

    He was very informative along the drive

    David is an asset to Hura Cars. Highly recommended driver!

  18. We booked the Hue to Hoi An car trip and our driver Lan picked us up promptly at 8am. The car was clean and spacious and the overall trip was fantastic.
