Bus Express, Transport Co (บริษัท ขนส่ง จำกัด), Dec 24, 2021

Bus VIP, Sri Suthep Tour (ศรีสุเทพทัวร์), Feb 7, 2020
The trip itself was okay, but unfortunately, the place we told we was getting dropped off at was miles away from where we actually stopped. Which meant that we couldn't get to our hotel (which we booked for opposite where we was supposed to be dropped off according to 12Go). So we lost out on a precious few hours sleep and 460 baht for the hotel and another 250 to get us near to where we had to be the following morning. If you book this journey, be cautious as to where you actually stop.
Bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour (กรุงสยามทัวร์), Feb 19, 2018
