Bus was packed, along the way another 2 people were picked up so even more crowded.

Everything went well. The bus left relatively on time and arrived at its destination on time.

The departure time was not the right one, the driver stopped more than once to do I don't know exactly what, but finally we arrived in plenty of time to Krabi. The bus is not very comfortable but not bad for the few hours.

The driver was excelent but the car was full of packages and it was crowded.
Bus Minibus, Good Luck Lanta Tour, Dec 12, 2022
We left too late, there's mainly no room for your legs and I'm only 1.54m and in the end some people had to stand because of lack of seats. However, staff was really friendly and helpful and waited even for people who were too late.

Ride was good, no complaints other than the A/C was leaking water onto my seat whenever the driver braked.

We were coming a little late so I called to see if its possible for the bus to wait a few minutes for us and they did. But then our driver took us to the wrong terminal so I called to apologize and say that we will not make it. Support lady asked where we were and the bus picked us up. It was on the way but still, just amazing service. 6/5 stars.
