I didn’t realise that this was primarily a 3-4 hour bus journey followed by a 1.5 hour ferry. This is entirely my fault! It was incredibly easy, very well managed. Would 100% recommend! Our only issue was the taxi mafia on the other side at Koh Samui (nothing to do with this tour operator but something to be wary of if you choose to catch this ferry!) . We were told 150baht each to lamai beach in one of their tuk-Tuks only for the driver to demand an extra 200 and tell us the 150 was only for the other passengers who had waited longer! Not what his boss had said so be warned about this.

picked us up at 9 and took us to krabi pier to then say we are setting off at 11 instead because there was not enough people. set off around 11:15 for the 9am set off. bus ride after was fine (krabi to surat thani port around 2.5 hours) and got straight onto ferry (to koh samui about 2 hours)

Good service! The chairs in the big bus are not made for tall people. Overall a good experience.

Came on time to pick up at my hotel, dropped us off at pier. A person was waiting with a ticket which was needed to scan abd got in the ferry. We reached koh Samui at 3;30. Perfect.

It was only because I had read these reviews that I understood, and then explained to other passengers, that the minivan ride was just to the Krabi bus station, and there we transferred to a bus to get to the ferry. The bus driver put a wet rag on the floor at my feet to catch the rainwater that dripped in around the window. 😜
The best part of this service is not having to figure out the tickets and transfers - they basically (more or less) guide you through it to make it simpler. Definitely a smart money-making business! The only caveat is I turned down the advance payment for the service on Samui - do yourself a favor, and just do it. It ended up costing me the same thing anyway, and it took me a while to figure it out once I got there.

Arrived on time. Driver was punctual, nice and well organised.

The ride was amazing. Our driver came a little later but he was very kind. He drove the vehicle well until the ferry and assisted us into the pier. We could have come earlier but some German passengers came late, didn’t wanted to enter the car, were just loud with the poor driver and started quarrelling with him.
Anyhow, I recommend this service as it’s reliable and sends you to the destination safely!! Happy travels!!

Everything went very smoothly - pick up from our hotel, drop off at the bus station, bus trip, ferry trip, and hotel drop off on the other side. All on time and there was little waiting between. An awesome service. Highly recommended.
