Passenger reviews out of total 2,382 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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 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

Very sweet driver but the car was automatically breaking all the time which makes you sick. Upon arrival I told the driver which boat company we wanted but she send us to another more expensive and not reliable company. So we ended up buying another ticket to get back to the mainland from koh Samet. Not very happy after all.

This ride from Bangkok to Rayong was smooth. The car was a comfortable Toyota SUV and clean. My husband and I were given two bottles of complementary water. The driver made a stop halfway there so we could use the restrooms at a gas station. This was a quick 3 hour ride. The driver was kind and friendly.

We departed on time and arrived way before the time that was mentioned on the timetable. Good driver, comfortable seats. Good service at the Bangkok bus station, they brought us all the way to our van. The van services at Rayong bus station were not honest with prices for transfer to the koh samet pier..

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!

I imagine this is how Elvis would travel through SE Asia. Our 1950's blingy van made for a very comfortable and relaxing trip. Our driver did an excellent job. He spoke very little English, but this did not effect his ability to do his job well. I would definitely recommend this service.

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.
