Easy check-in, left on time. Van was a typical transit van that you see all over Thailand and driving was typical to how Thais drive. Easy check-in at the dock and quick boat ride over.

Only one remark about the pick up point as the "tourist hotel area" in BKK is mostly in Silom/Saton and it's really unconvenient to cross ny the town early in the morning, overall if later you discover that the bus must do the same way in the opposite direction.....it should be usefull to have a pick up point in another part of BKK near Lumpini Park or something similar.

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!
