Battambang to Siem Reap Destination Reviews

I think the ratings should also be broken down into the route taken and not just the company overall as i read a few scary reviews about this company but they all seemed to be around one route (one to stay away from) But for Battembang - siem reap (and the other way) i highly recommend this company! Easy ride, on time, good driving, bottle of water as you get on the bus, friendly staff and comfy bus!

No problem ! Everything was good

Staff really helpful, waiting room pleasant, the bus itself was comfortable with lots of leg room. Driver friendly and approachable, asked at regular intervals if anyone needed a longer stop for the toilet when he was collecting/delivering items. Arrived early which is always a bonus.

Fast and reasonably comfortable. We made multiple stops and picked up or dropped off various packages but we got to siem reap on time. We were going in 7 seater van which was fairly comfortable for 3h journey.

We had a super driver there and back who drove us safely and skillfully through the. Cambodian traffic carried. In doing so, he remained well below the previously stated driving time. The bus was well air-conditioned. Comfortable situe with enough leg room.

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.
