About 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.

Mama Travel and Tour Company Reviews

van Regional 14pax, Mama Travel and Tour, Mar 30, 2020
Cuando llegamos a la puerta de Mama Travel en Bangkok estaba cerrado, pero enseguida vino una chica y al vernos esperando nos preguntó y le enseñe desde el movil el PDF de la compra de los billetes hacia Ayutthaya. Nos dijo que en 5 minutos vendría el transporte y nos llevaron en una van a la estación de autobuses. En la estación si tuvimos que esperar como media hora a que llegara otra van más grande y despues una hora y media aproximadamente nos dejó puntual a la hora prevista en Ayutthaya. Muy buen viaje, muy recomendable! Una vez que llegas la estación de tren está lejos, como a media hora caminando y tienes que coger un tuk tuk u otro transporte para llegar. Sería bueno que la van te dejara en la estación de tren y no en medio de la ciudad.

Walked to mama travel agency, some guy picked us up had to walk khao san road back, were dropped off at a van station without any info and driver left. Got assigned a new van - which was full - still tried to fit us in. Didn't work - took a later van. No apologies or some. New van full of musquitos

Old van, many delays, arrived more then 30 minutes late. Staff only tells "wait here" or "get out, vehicle change" and then kept us waiting for more then 40 minutes before we continued. No information.

Poor organisation and waste of time. The ticket said to be at the bus stop 30 mins before. No one from the company showed up until 30 mins after the departure time. Tried to call the number on the ticket but it just rang and rang and the office was completely closed. Standing on stinking Khao San road at 7am for over an hour is not a great start to any journey. In the end we departed almost 1.5 hours late and arrived at Samet just before 2pm. From other reviews it seems like this is 'normal', not a one-off. The drive was fine. I would try to find alternatives if I took this journey again - not recommended.

Took a while to set off as was waiting for mini busses for a while and when it came the tyre burst after 20 mins. They arranged a new bus fairly quickly so was well handled. Although we had no idea what was happening initially so would have been nice if the driver told us as we didn't know if a new bus was coming or if we had to wait until it got fixed!

They did the job but. Khao San mama travel is not easy to find. Then a man from the agency comes and bring you with a couple of other people that are going in other destination to different places with no explanation. They take you to a pretty inconfortable van that takes you to the bus station.... The travel to kanchanaburi itself was fine. But they should explain that you are not leaving directly to kanchanaburi from mama travel...

Прекрасный сервис! На любой кошелек. Мы брали три места в микроавтобусе. Так как подошли первые, наш багаж загрузили в багажник, остальным пассажирам пришлось везти рюкзаки на коленях. Автобус небольшой, типа нашей газельки, но пришел вовремя, довез до места. Брать отдельную машину конечно удобнее. Обратно уже так и сделали. Разница в цене, если брать эконом вариант на трех человек составила в общей сложности 1600 руб., но ехать значительно комфортнее.

Trip was overbooked so two people had to get off and wait for the next minivan they take you somewhere then you have to get out into another minivan. I suggest getting there early or you could be squashed in a seat with luggage under your feet and to your side trip went smoothly we arrived earlier than expected which was nice

It was ok. I arrived at boarding point 1 hour before, as it is required, and the office was close. If you have a large suitcase or backpack, you must pay an extra seat. Take a jacket because air conditioner is strong. We departure 30 minutes later but arrive in time, not at Walking Street, like 800 mts away. If you are tall, ask please ir you can seat on the front or near the door. Is a very small minivan

We had to wait at centre point for 3 hours and the bus was not a mini bus but a big bus. My daughter was sick in the bus but the driver didn’t care at all and wouldn’t stop. The bus was about 2 hours late arriving into Bangkok.

Inte bra alls men men så är det ju lite överallt i Thai, att dom ska hålla en tid är ju bara att glömma och allt går ut på att "lura" av oss faranger våra surt förvärvade och skattade pengar, inte undra på att landet tappar mer och mer turister och den trenden lär fortsätta för ryktet sprids mer och mer, Tyvärr Tyvärr för dom som verkligen behöver en inkomst, sista gången jag sätter min fot i detta land har trots allt varit här 12 ggr men nu är det slut, har bara blivit sämre och sämre blir likt Titanic.( Inhemsk betalar 20Bath, Farang 200 Bath 10ggr mer)

The minibus left late and was i terrible shape. No AC, very crowded, very little leg room and they had us move to another pickup point. We overpaid when booking online compared to people who bought the ticket on site. The only advantage was the departure time and the location.

It was late (30min), we had to put our lugages stuffed in the alley between our seats and next to us. We had not 1 cm space, it was full. The driver thought he was in fast and furious. It was hot, the air conditioning was not working properly and the seats were not comfortable. At least, we arrived alive but it's not enough.
