Excellent service, happy to leave the journey all to them otherwise would have been a complicated journey. Was very happy with the 2nd class sleeper on the train was comfortable and safe. And our ferry was fast overtaking another companies ferry. Plus no black smoke coming out of ours

Bus Express, Songserm, Nov 12, 2019
So guys, I’m going to write you a REAL review. The bus is leaving from Kao San Road in Bangkok. The touroperator has a small office over there, the people working there are not super nice but also not super bad, just doing their job. Our bus was leaving at 8 and we arrived at the office at 07:15 pm. The bus arrived at 07:45 and we could get in, half an hour after that we left. When we walked in the bus and took our seats we found out that the seats almost can go fully straight so it’s not that uncomfortable! So you can sleep and at 12:00 you make a stop at this little store. You can buy food there (overpriced, so bring your own) and can use the toilet (thai bucket toilet) and after 30 minutes we started driving again. Then you will arrive on 04;30 am at a random pier in a small city, you have to wait there for 2 hours to get on the ferry. The ferry leaves between 06:30 and 07:00. The ferry first had a stop at Ko Tao, and after that Koh Phangan. We arrived at 00:30 pm in Koh Phangan, so it takes a long time and so have an overnight stop for 2 hours but for the price it’s not that bad. We also didn’t even saw a employee in the bus so your stuff wil be safe, otherwise just put a lock on your hand luggage and you also will be fine and have a nice sleep in the bus without worries.

Bus Express, Raja Ferry, Oct 31, 2019
We arrived at the office an hour before departure like they ask and we were actually the last passengers to show up so few minutes after we checked in, the lady took the group to the bus (couple minutes walk) and we started the trip. Meaning we're almost an hour ahead of schedule which was amazing. Seats were comfy and spacious, the back reclined a lot making it legit comfortable to sleep and even tho the person infront of you reclined his seat all the way back there was still great amount of room for you and your legs.. They give a sandwich, bottle of water and a blanket for the drive :) The roads aren't the greatest and the ride was bumpy from time to time, yet we slept the whole ride. There were usb charging ports in between the seats. No wifi on the bus. We had 1 stop of 30 mins for refreshments. Ferry was a bit old but good seats. We expected it to be long and exhausting but it was actually easy and smooth. Very well organized and I definitely recommend.

We started the bus trip one hour late, driver was really rude. One the ferry, which was a five hours trip to Koh Phangan, the AC was really, really low, maybe 12°c or so, everyone was freezing, my friend and I got a really bad cold despite the layers of tee-shirts we had put on. We were sick for half of our time in the island... Next time I'll definitely pay more for a better service.

Bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour, Oct 15, 2019
This was such a comfortable bus. You can put the chairs right back to relax. They have screens so you can put movies on. This trip consists of a bus, van, and ferry. We asked at the counter when we collected our ticket to make sure we knew what was happening. Also the 3 tickets we got said bus, van, and ferry. People can't expect to have their hand held through the journey. And you can't expect everyone to speak English in a foreign country. Take some responsibility and try figure out what's going on yourself. The bus drops people off in Surat Thani. You might have to wait a little bit until the van comes to collect people. We had one van come and take half the people, then another came 10 minutes later and took the rest. They drop you off at the port for the islands. You have to find the right pier and board the ferry. You can ask at the information desk in the ferry center

While the train arrived to Surat Thani about 2 hrs late, they put us the next ferry which wasn't that long of a wait. The train was clean and reasonably comfortable.

The bus left approx 1h later than the original time. We arrived at the boat later than expected but in time to make it. The toilet in the bus and the ones on the road where you make a stop are really old and dirty..

1. Don’t get crazy about “unknown“ location of the bus. Everybody says it’s tricky. There is no bus terminal indeed. However the meeting point is well described. You just need to sit at that coffee shop on the 1st floor (in European way of counting floors) and wait. The agency representative came 5min before departure and walked us to the bus. 2. The bus itself is not fancy, but comfortable, the AC doesn’t go extremely low, so you’re not freezing. Everybody gets blankets for the trip. 3. On the ferry there is a bar with water, soda and instant soups. You don’t have to drop your bag, you can keep it with you (in case you have sth valuable. also all the bags are left in a place with window, so you can keep an eye on it anyways). 3. For the bus departing at 7pm, you stop around midnight for 40min for food, drinks, toilet. You also stop around 6am for 20min, but there is only toilet. We got to the ferry harbor at 7:20am, ferry departed at 10:10, reached Koh Samui around 12 and Koh Pha-ngan slightly before 1pm. 4. You can see it was extremely long. I recommend you to check flights to Surat Thani. I didn’t know about that airport before. the flight prices are comparable to bus+ferry (I only checked BKK-Koh Samui, which is quite expensive) so probably it’s worth to fly. Also that ferry is the 2nd slowest one (after Raja) and the one that is usually late and out of schedule. 5. At some point in the reservation funnel I’ve got an info that I’m getting only a voucher that I’ll need to exchange at the station for the real TICKET. However it’s not fully true. You don’t need to do anything before meeting the agency representative at theta coffee shop. You just show them the QR code on your phone. That’s when you get the ticket for the ferry.
