Passenger reviews out of total 4,189 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.

When we arrived the staff printed our tickets for us and directed us to give our luggage in. The porters refused to take our luggage and told us to get into another queue. The lady took our tickets and then asked us to pay more money for business class tickets. We said we didn’t ask or want business class tickets, we just wanted to give our luggage in. She said well I’ve already done it. We refused to pay and they were shouting and were so rude. A different lady then helped us and moved our tickets back to tourist class, but then we all had separate seats around the boat. It wasn’t a good start to our holidays

Absolut genialer Flug. Schneller Check-In, schnell an Board gekommen und richtig seichten, ruhigen Flug gehabt. Dachte immer Propellermaschinen wären humpelig. Ganz im Gegenteil, so ein sanften Flug hatte ich mit einer Turbinenmaschine noch nie. Kann ich nur empfehlen...

The assigned business class seats upstairs are very comfortable and you keep your bags with you which is great. We arrived at the port early and were transferred onto the earlier boat at no charge and departed 5 minutes later. We found the air con way too cold so needed to get extra clothes from our bags to cover up. Otherwise superb!

The journey was smooth and we arrived on time. The whole luggage system is poor and its wrong I'm. Not allowed to keep my bag with me. Then I have to pay you to store it when I'm Not given a choice. The bags should be taken off the trolley and handed straight out rather then all being placed on the floor which wastes time. Also the service was very poor they walked passed without offering anything or even looking when I wa swaiti g to be served also there were no workers after the service to buy any porducts

The journey with OceanJet was nice and pleasant from check in until arrival at our destination apart from smaller issues: the air condition in the business class deck (1st row) was set too cold; carrying bigger, heavier luggage through the narrow staircase is rather inconvenient (crew is assisting during boarding only)

Great no problem with Ocean Jet but am disappointed with 12go Asia I booked online but our voucher did not specified the ticket number so ocean jet asked us to buy another tickets. Ocean Jet told us to ask the operator (12Go Asia) to ask for a refund but until now 12Go Asia is not responding. I send 12Go Asia support team twice already but they are not responding anymore.
