At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

We did get to our destination in the end but customer service and communication could have been better.

The journey was a big mess. We took off at 10:30 from Khao Tara Travel, in a minibus with other people, it drove with lots of difficulties. Then we stopped at 2 bus stations, opposite sides of Bangkok before coming back in Bangok at Southern Terminal. It took us 2hours, we had no information along the way. Why not set the meeting point at 12;30 at Southern Terminal ??? Then we took off, had a little lunch in the bus, and at 6:30pm (the time we were supposed to arrive at Sukhothaï), the bus stopped many times to drop people off without telling anyone the plan. So at 7pm (after 30min wait), we asked when we would arrive at Sukhothaï, the woman in the bus said 9pm (she didn't speak English at all), it seemed normal for her... So we ended up at Sukhothaï 2:30 hours late (9pm instead of 6:30pm), the guesthouse was thus closed. Really bad experience.

Due to heavy traffic in Bangkok, we barely missed our scheduled bus. However, the company graciously let us take the next scheduled bus with no extra charge, and we are extremely grateful for that. The bus arrived at the meeting point three hours late. On the way to Chiang Mai, we unexpectedly had to park and wait to change buses because that one was overheating. Then the next bus broke down, so we waited by the side of the road for Songtaos to drive us the final hour to Chaing Mai bus terminal. Including the three hour delay in Bangkok, our 12-hour journey turned into 18 hours. While the staff was apologetic, we were not compensated for lost time.

The receptionist was extremely rude with tourists. A man came in to book at shuttle and she berated him in front of a room full of people. He simply asked a question about a shuttle. She grunted and barely spoke to anyone. The shuttle was 25 minutes late as we were waiting for People to arrive. When they finally did arrive she embarrassed them in front of the room full of people by telling them they were late. We finally got into a shuttle then transferred to another shuttle a few minutes later. We were left sitting and waiting inside the shuttle until the driver appeared. We then picked up two ladies along the way to Ayutthaya and dropped one off on the side of the road. I would not recommend this company simply for the rudeness of the receptionist.

We waited in the Tara San travel where the staff were not very helpful. They then walked us 5 mins to where we got a mini bus to the station. The woman was very very rude shoving people into the bus and it was in a very rushed manner. 4 people were made to share 3 seats at the back. Once we’d got to the bus station there was the same rush to get out and to the coach, we basically had to run. Up until the bus it was a 1 star poor service. But the bus itself to Chiang Mai was better than expected and was comfortable.

The coach was a lot older and more cramped than the photos showed when booking. The coach left on time and arrived slightly late due to traffic but they kept turning the lights on and waking people up... They gave us a food voucher to use at 2am but they ending up stopping at 11pm there was only crisps available. Okay service but I will go by plane next time!

Were waiting for the Bus to arrive at Tara Travel for more than 2 hours. Apparently the big bus couldn't pick us up at the station so we had to split and take a minibus to get to the main bus station. We were told our bus was going to leave at 7pm. At the bus station we found out that the actual time to leave was supposed to be 9:40pm. So had to wait there again. Bus was dirty and old and definitely one of the older ones around; even most thais got into nicer looking busses. Theres not too much space for legs. You'll get a water of 330ml and some chocolate as snack. However the bus was fairly on time and we arrived at around 7am the next morning. It's an adventure but I'd recommend everybody to get on the plane or the night train. In the end you don't get to see more of the country side because it's an overnight bus and you'll be more refreshed and less tired after the trip.

AC was working really well and you were able to tilt your chair quit much. It was a bit delayed, but it was the ”check-in” that took most of the time, the bus was there on time and despite the delay we arrived at Chiang Mai on time.

The whole trip seemed really unorganized. We were late leaving from the tour depot then stopped at a bus station, where we were told to get off and wait for another hour and a half for another bus because we had missed ours by leaving late. The lady at the desk was really apologetic and did the best she could. We eventually got onto another van to kanchaniburi, which was cramped and the aircon didn't work. Overall very uncomfortable and hectic, but traffic was crazy on a Friday evening. The staff is great and will do what they can.
