My daughter and I took one of these taxis from outside the War Museum, checked first that he had a meter and made sure it was running. Had the address and map showing where we wanted to go. Meter immediately started going up way too fast, we drove way out of town, miles away from where we should have been, then doors locked internally and he demanded all our money, shouting at us and wouldnt open doors until he had it all. Had the cheek to say as he let us out, be careful ladies its a dodgy area, then drove off leaving us stranded with no money. Happened to other people on our cruise ship on the same day.

He asked too much for a little drive (we knew now after two weeks of Vietnam) but we were tired and it was still nothing for us compared with Holland so we got in. Het asked 100.000 what has been around 20.000. He probably thought therefor that we were just arrived in Vietnam, so when he stopped at our Hotel he tried to rip us off more by changing it in 10.000 bill and asked for 100.000 with a surprised face. Of course we were alert and we start screaming at him that we were going to go to the police and throwing the bill in his face we stepped out. He drove quickly away, probably he got frightened by our reaction the filty thief. Always ask to put the meter on, but better go with another company or much better and save take the Crab taxis(by app to contact them and they know were you are and come to you. You get by forehand their numberplate and look like normal cars)They work for themselves and are very reliable because all there personal information is known by the organisation. As soon they do something they are out of the list. Normal taxis are not happy with them. Be alert because at the airport another taxi tried to rip us off also, there you must take the taxi that provides the airport inside. We didnt see that straight away. Its very bad for the tourism of Vietnam what is already so poor and needs the tourists so hard!

Yes we were ripped off too according to our Hotel. I tried to get a price out of the guy and he was totally shady and kept changing his story, very far, very near! If I wasn't so tired I would have just got out. Avoid at all costs ....rather like HCM!

Can only agree with other reviews. This company is terrible. They tend to park outside of tourist spots and actively recruit you to their cabs. They take extra long circuitous routes, have meters which jump up rapidly, and use sleight of hand to switch out large denomination notes which you paid them with smaller ones. Our fare with them to a pagoda was 225,000 VND. Took Vinasun back and it was 65,000 for,the same distance. AVOID. Vinasun and Mailinh ( the green taxis) offered courteous and fair rides- seek them out.

The driver dropped us one block and asked 200,000 VND. The act is stupid so you can catch them easily. Also, pulled the old trick of replacing larger notes with smaller denomination. This left a bitter taste and the government should definitely try and regulate taxies
