Trip went perfectly and according to schedule. It was split into 3 parts - Bus from Bangkok to Rayong, Van from Rayong to Pier and then Ferry over to Koh Samet. Comfort was according to the price and perfectly fine for a 3 hour bus ride! Everybody was very nice! Would certainly do it again.

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.

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

Says Khao San travel mart. no directions where to get picked up. Found an english speaking Thai person who let me know its infront of McDonalds on Khao San road. We waited an extra hour on side of road to pick up a couple who weren't even coming to our location! So we missed our ferry and had to wait an extra hour to catch the next one. No apologies or discounts on future travel offered. Not cool!

Van was really uncomfortable, driver unskilled. Hit the brakes all the time when there was no reason. Annoying way of driving. Had to pay 600 bath extra for backpacks.

Pros: - We arrived at our destination a little earlier than expected - Aircon was a blessing in the sweltering Thai heat Cons: - Extremely bumpy ride with little to no comfort given the seating design. Sleeping is difficult unless you're used to travel or absolutely exhausted when boarding - Upon arrival at Ban Phe pier, ready to board the ferry to Kao Samet, we were effectively abandoned by Mama Travel. Were it not for other staff on-site providing assistance, we would have been left stranded with no way of reaching the advertised Nadan Pier, and as it happens, we know that at least two other groups of passengers had to find alternative transport across the sea. We had to jump from boat to boat in order to board the correct ferry! - The ferry itself was not included, despite the initial The aforementioned staff member sold us tickets for a bus to Ekkamai at half the price and half the journey length. Assuming this alternative is legitimate, I see no reason to book with Mama Travel.
