Mama Travel and Tour

Company Information

Mama Travel & Tour runs a minivan service between Bangkok and Ayutthaya and Pattaya as well as offering tours from Bangkok. Tour options include half day tours around the capital as well as day excursions to Ayutthaya or Kanchanaburi to see sights such as the Death Railway and the bridge over the River Kwai.

Routes Served by Mama Travel & Tour

Bangkok–Ayutthaya

There are three departures from Bangkok to Ayutthaya each day, leaving the capital at 07.10, 10.30 and 16.00 and due to arrive two hours later at 09.10, 12.30 and 18.00 respectively. Tickets for this service are priced at THB270.

Bangkok–Pattaya

Mama Travel & Tour also provides services to Pattaya from Bangkok, with three buses each day departing the capital at 09.00, 12.00 and 15.00 (scheduled to arrive in Pattaya at 11.30, 14.30 and 17.30 respectively) with tickets also available for TH270.

Pros

Services depart from Khao San Road in the heart of Bangkok so it is very easy to reach the pick-up point to catch these buses. If you are staying in the capital’s backpacker district then you can just walk around the corner to the Mama Travel & Tour office.

Helpfully, these services terminate in the centre of Pattaya so you should be pretty close to your hotel and will not be required to pay extra for a tuk-tuk to take you from the drop-off point on the edge of town as is the case with some other travel operators across the country.

Mama Travel & Tour also offers tours which can be a convenient way for many travellers to visit some of the most popular tourist sites in the country. Many people will prefer to arrange all of their travel through the same company and Mama Travel & Tour can help with this, reducing hassle and planning time, as well as possibly saving you money!

Cons

Minivans are used on all routes operated by Mama Travel & Tour, which can become quite cramped if passengers have brought a considerable amount of luggage with them. Larger buses are usually more comfortable but this should not be too much of an issue as the journey should last less than three hours, even taking traffic into account.

As is the case with all transport providers operating in and out of Bangkok, the capital city’s traffic can be pretty hectic so it is worth factoring in some additional time in case of delays.

It would be helpful if these services continued throughout the day, for example, the final bus from Bangkok to Pattaya departs at 15.00. For those arriving into Bangkok, whether by air or land, this may be too early meaning that travellers wishing to visit Pattaya would have to spend a night in Bangkok first. If the services were extended for an additional couple of hours then it could be beneficial to many passengers.

Although these services are competitively priced, the tickets still cost more than travelling by train so those on a tight budget may prefer the slightly slower train ride.

Keep in mind

Mama Travel & Tour can arrange tickets and transport to attractions within Bangkok as well as in other cities such as Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi and Pattaya.

Travellers reviews

Mama Travel & Tour is regarded as a reliable operator to choose if you are looking to travel between Bangkok and Ayutthaya or Pattaya. Passengers also like the option of arranging tours and tickets through the operator as this can sometimes save money and certainly requires less planning.

If you are on a tight schedule then an organized tour to Kanchanaburi from Bangkok is a good option rather than heading to the popular city by yourself and staying overnight.

We wait more than 1 hour for the driver and nobody say us that the van are late. We “need” to book 3 seats for 2 persons, one for the extra luggage. But then we get 2 seats but have to pay for three, and they put to much people in one van. The air conditioner was working very bad. Look for another transfer, not Mama travel.

We departed about 30mins late from appointed time, but it's ok because we're in not in such a hurry. The van is switch in Sai Tai Mai, but to better condition van. Even though the space for passengers not too wide, but the driver was very helpful and know the road very well.

First of all, the driver had forgotten about picking me up, he was only 15-20 minutes late. There was not enough Space for legs and i had one Big bag of 70l plus one of 20l : no storage room for that for a 3 hour drive it was not easy.

First of all the Transport was not directly. I had to change on South Terminal Bangkok. And the final stop was on the terminal Hua Hin and not on Markert Village. Sorry when I wantet this I can go by grab for 120 Bath to the teminnal and then for 200 Bath To Hua hin with a mini Van. So its a fraud and I recommend do it by yourself and you will be quicker ,cheaper and directly from your Hotel. Actually I did Pay here 420 bath

We had to change to a different minivan early in the journey which was confusing. The staff were not friendly but did the job. Overall ok.

The departure trip from Bangkok to Trat took too much time, roughly 6 to 7 hours whereas the return trip from Trat only 5 hours (driver drove faster and didn't stop too much on the way). The van's AC on the way back wasn't working well, too hot. The rest is okay.

In the institutions was stated we had to be present 30min before arrival time. Nobody showed up till 30 min after we supposed to leave. Waited more than 1,5 hours before we left. Contact number was not working also the only customer service from 12go asia was not help-full. Drive to Koh Samed was ok.

First you meet at Mama travel, from there you go to another place, wait, jump in a van, stop at a bus hub and then you change to a second van. Start the trip to destination. All good

As other people have said, the ride didn't arrive till 40 minutes later. Although we were lucky to get a private taxi ( Toyota Innova ) and didn't have to travel in the shuttle bus.

We departed sort of on time but the promised arriving time of 12.45 at Koh Samet was not true. We arrive 12.45 at the pier and needed to wait until 14.15 to depart with the boat. Last pick up with the van was an very old car without AC

It was a little lie organised chaos. There were too many of us for the mini van so we are unsure where the ones that didn't fit on the bus went. The bus was rather warm and cramped as it was stacked with luggage as well as people. The driver spoke very little English so he could not tell us where we were when he dropped us off - as it was not quite Walking Street as advertised. Ideally he could've shown us or provided us with a map to help us get our bearings but we were just left on the side of the road. Ultimately it did the job we needed - dropped us off, and we worked the rest of it out for ourselves.
