We booked a trip going from Hoi An to Hue on the scenic route stopping at marble mountains, banana hills, and Hai Van pass. The driver was on time to pick us up at our hotel. And we had a nice day trip. Our driver, Tuan was patient even when we spent 4 hours on Bana hills, always smiling, and driving safely and comfortably. I would recommend everyone to take this trip with Hura cars.

The service from both Hoang (Phong Nha-Hue) and Thanh (Hue-Hoi An) was fantastic. Both were excellent drivers and we felt very safe in the car. They provided historical context to the country and were great at communicating over WhatsApp.

Easy to book hue private car transfer via Whatsapp. Our driver was Thanh and he was a timely, knowledgeable, and safe driver. We had great conversations and he gave us good tips for our time in Hoi An. He stopped at many iconic and scenic places and we highly recommend Thanh as a guide!

I had a really enjoyable day, he showed me some great sights and stopped at the best photo spots. He was my photographer 😂 he knew where to take the best pics! He also told me some fascinating facts about Vietnam and its culture. I am really happy with my decision to transfer from Hue to Hoi An by car. I also went to the golden hand’s bridge and don’t think I would have easily navigated the theme park without Thanh’s help, it was huge!
If you are considering booking this company as a transfer, do it, and I hope you get Thanh! I would rate it 10/10! Also, I was a solo traveler and felt very comfortable the whole time. The car was also very comfortable and clean, and water was provided with regular comfort stops if needed. He also helped with some tips on good places for Hoi An which has been great 🙂 Thanks, Thanh for looking after me, great trip!!

Very informative trip with Thanh from Hue to Hoi An. He looked after us very well and stopped at the most peaceful and beautiful stops. He loves to talk about the history of his country which we found very interesting and helpful. He is very chatty (maybe a little too much) and friendly and got us to our hotel safely.

After tropical rains stopped us from hiring a bike to cross the pass, we used a private car and driver who showed us plenty of places to look at on the journey, stopping at a lagoon that farmed oysters, where we watched the local fishermen and tasted oysters in a local cafe, with pearl shop. The view over the pass was hidden by the rains but would have been beautiful. We stopped to look over Da Nang bay and across the city, saw the fishing harbor, and then stopped at a marble shop and carving area and then walked up marble mountain and went into the caves before being dropped at our accommodation in Hoi An

Our transfer from Hue to Hoi An town with Hoang was a total charm. We had so much fun with him from Hue city on the ride to Hoi An. There was never a dull moment with him and we appreciate that he spoke very good English which makes the ride even more enjoyable, his English skill is better than the pro tour guide we joined a tour with another company in Hue – Amazing. He gave us a great answer that the tour guide can not explain to us.
He also made sure that we were taken care of when we got to Hoi An Market where he made a call to our hotel to pick us up at the parking lot because the street was closed around 18h30 and his car can not park in front of our hotel.
We feel that he went beyond his job duty to make sure that we are taken care of. I would recommend Huracars to any of your customers as he is the best driver/ tour guide we encountered all over Vietnam and we have done a lot of transfers while on vacation. Thank you for a great transfer from Hue to Hoi An via Hai Van pass. Please let him know that we do appreciate what he has done for our group.

Great service. Good Communion with driver, clean car. It was our first time using Hura Cars transfer service so we were kind of unsure what to expect but it turned out great. Driver was nice and friendly, clean car. Took the car from Hue city to Hoi An with a stop in Hai Van pass and Lap An lagoon (HIGHLY RECOMMEND). Would recommend the service to others

Our trip from Hue city to Hoi An ancient town was a very convenient and pleasant experience. Nam, our driver, was very competent and informative, pointing out sights on the way. The car was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend a private car transfer without hesitation.
