Battambang to Siem Reap Destination Reviews

Terrible and not as described. They kept us waiting and since we were the only passengers we were put into a cramped old minivan for the 4 hour journey. Avoid!
Van VIP, Go Ho Travel, Oct 6, 2022
We turned up at Go Ho travel with 25 mins to spare before our departure date. Spoke to someone who worked there but he didn’t seem to have any idea about our bus. When it got to half 1 which was when our bus was meant to depart, no bus was to be seen. So I asked again, where is our bus. After he made a few phone calls to his ‘boss’ a random car pulled up and he advised that this was our ride to siem reap. I questioned it as it wasn’t a company van. He got be on the phone to his boss and he assured me, the driver would take me and my partner to siem reap. Anyway, that was the case. So 30 mins later we were on the road. The ride was comfortable but it was very unprofessional and slightly stressful overal experience. Especially when you’ve paid for it all already and your bus doesn’t even turn up.

Booked on internet with 12go Asia. Even with conformation and invoice it took the girls at Battambang for ever to allocate tickets and seats on bus because their computer showed no booking. We were not impressed. Bloody stubborn girls.
