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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

I booked a train/ferry round trip from Bangkok to koh tao and everything was smooth with easy to follow instructions. Only compliments to the services provided by 12go and would definitely use them again in the future for complete peace of mind. I went with 2nd class train to save some money but did wish I spent the bit extra for the 1st class. The 2nd class was acceptable but wish it was a bit cleaner with more space. You get what you pay for in Thailand and this is no exception.

we were a bit sceptical booking this from Canada. would it work out? were the vouchers actually valid? etc. Delighted to report this was hassle free travel. We enjoyed our adventure travelling to Koh Tao. this website is a gem

★★★★★ Apr 18, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Great little over night train, definitely worth the experience. I was worried about missing the stop but the staff come around and wake you up when you're there. The ferry trip to Koh Tao is beautiful and I recommend sitting at the top for the best veiws. luckily it was a calm day so it wasn't a rough trip, but I heard when it's a choppy sea day it can be a scurvy ride.
★★★☆☆ Apr 18, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Unbelievable how cold they put the air con! When I tried to go out I was quite rudely told not to go out by one of the staff. Thought I'd accidently ended up in Iceland, not a ferry to Koh Tao!

★★★☆☆ Apr 7, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel) :
We bought online a train- bus- ferry ticket. Picking up tickets was straightforward opposite Hua Lumphong station in Bangkok. Train is a great way to travel. They made up our beds as soon as we requested. Clean sheets, blanket and pillow. We were woken up 15 min before our arrival in Chumphon. The only thing I would do differently is that we booked a train - bus - ferry ticket and when we arrived in Chumphon at 4:15am we had to walk 400m to Fame Tours, wait there 1 hour only to then hop a mini bus to go back to the train station to get on another bus! Also our ferry ticket said 'high speed ferry' however, it was the express ferry (Songserm) which takes 1 hour longer (not the Lomprayah high speed ferry). It would be good if the ticket said either Songserm or Lomprayah. We could have bought our bus and ferry ticket at the train station and just waited there, not having to walk to Fame tours. As it turned out it wasn't a problem as we arrived at Ko Tao at 10am (10:30 am at our accommodation) and our room wasn't ready until 11:30.

★★★★☆ Apr 3, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel) :
service of 12go Asia was excellent. Office in Bangkok easy to find, the girls were very helpfull and friendly. Will book my tickets again by them next time. Transport from Chumphon Fame tours to the pier was a bit chaos, and long waitingtime, but in the end everything went well. Also the ferry trip to koh tao was ok! I can recommend everybody to book their transport by 12go Asia
★★☆☆☆ Apr 2, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel) :
Everything went smooth but the pick up from the meeting point was late and the boat left late. It wasn't a big deal, trying to get picked up from the pier from my hostel was hard to accommodate when the time allotted wasn't followed. As well it would have been a lot helpful in our online ticket if it included which boat we were taking (lomphrata or sesaung etc.) I couldn't provide this to my hostel because I had no idea until I arrived at the meeting point and got boat ticket. My hostel is trying to charged me extra for the taxi because I couldn't provide them the boat company ahead of time..which I wasn't too happy about.

★★★☆☆ Mar 31, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel) :
The fame tours office does not open until 4:30 unlike it says on the paperwork. You then wait at their cafe for 2 hours before getting a taxi back to the station which is fustrating but journey good and boat comfortable

Muy bueno todo el servicio, rápido, organizado y eficiente. Muy contenta, lo volvería a elegir.
★★★★☆ Feb 28, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Bus and ferry were both clean and comfortable. Only negative is that the train arrives at 4.15am and the bus doesn't pick you up until 6am at the train station. It would be better if the bus picked you up earlier and you waited at the ferry, better facilities there than the train station or obviously if the boat left earlier!
★★★☆☆ Feb 26, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah)
★★★★★ Feb 20, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
the times on the ticket are not so correct. 5am was printed, they picked us up at 6am which wasnt a problem. Bus ride to the pier was smooth. The ferry ride it self was also very nice, sitting on the upper deck you can enjoy the sun and sea breeze. everything without problems would book again.

Nice clean boat. Very comfortable. Crew was very courteous and hospitable.
★★☆☆☆ Feb 14, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Too long waiting time in the middle of the night, nothing like the time they said in the 12goasia ticket. It is 50B more expensive than if you have bought it in the train station like many people did. The boat was overcrowded and not confortable at all
★★★★★ Feb 13, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
The train was quite chilly with the AC but sweater and pants and I was fine. Bed was good, ferry was pretty rough but I sat on the upper deck
★★★★☆ Feb 8, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel) :
Bus and ferry were clean and comfortable but departed/ arrived 30 minutes later than the times on the ticket. The ferry was smooth and no one was sea sick.
★★★★☆ Feb 7, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Jolly Travel) :
Calm waters made for a pleasant trip.
★★★★★ Feb 5, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :

★★☆☆☆ Feb 4, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Awful journey, would not go 2nd class again as it was noisy until after midnight, the lights were left on, making it impossible to sleep. As for the toilet, I nearly vomited after using it. Disgusting. Would hate to smell it if they hadn't left the window open!

The service is wonderful, email confirmation and remind. The stafd is efficient and kind, the support team can replied me within 1 day. The instructuon is very clear and DOB building is obvious to find.
★★★☆☆ Dec 26, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
The ferry departure was advertised at 5am. Instead, we waited from 4:15 to 6am in Chumpon train station for a bus to pick us up and drop us at the pier, where the ferry left at 7:30, which is it's actual schedule.
★★★☆☆ Dec 21, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Good service. But I ordered a ticket from Bangkok-Chumpon-Koh Tao, but the train ticket I received was Bangkok-Surathani. That could have messed up my trip. But thanks to the personnel on the train, it worked out anyway.
★★★★★ Dec 18, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Well organised. Someone directed us to the ticket office once you are off the train. From there, a bus picked us up and dropped us at the Ferry. Seamless operation - well done. On the ferry, all is good except the sea was very rough that morning. Should therefore warn us and advice us to take sea sick pills (useless to take that once you are on board) or at least provide us with sea sick bags BEFORE half the passengers get sea sick. Oh well - at least they started giving out sea sick bags 1 hour after ppl got sea sick. Better late than never
★★★☆☆ Dec 2, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
There was so much wind that everybody was getting seasick. They should have given us bags or at least prepare us for 2 hours of hell. Other than that we arrived on time which is always nice
★★☆☆☆ Dec 1, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Trip went Well. But at the Ferry they where so Rough with my backpack that I lost my flashlight!
★★☆☆☆ Nov 29, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah)
★★★☆☆ Nov 16, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
12Go service fantastic Ferry people - we're not cattle! The ticket girl was too busy taking selfies and pics of the queue to serve the long line in front of her! Then when she finally did she was unhelpful and told us to wait in the wrong place! Extremely disorganised... ferry itself was fine, nice and smooth - 100 bht will get you a more comfortable inside seat at the upper rear of the ferry
★★★★★ Nov 9, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :

★★★★★ Sep 28, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Everything work perfectly, the 12go office is just one minute walk from the train station so really convenient. The train start on time, the 2nd class night train with fan is enough for my standart and i had a good sleep that make the trip passed faster. Good connection with the bus to the ferry. Perfect
★★★★★ Sep 27, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :

★★★★☆ Aug 31, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Well organized. Only short waiting time at Chumpon rail Station. Good Ferry Service. Bags for sea sickness would have been a plus. And less Music/Sound on the Ferry would have been good.

Everything worked perfect, recomandable!
★★★★☆ Jul 9, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
All went smoothly. Check in at counter at 5am and get triangle sticker written Tao. Leaving station at 6am and arriving in Lomprayah pier at 7am then straight to check in counter to exchange voucher with yellow ticket and pink sticker to be put on your shirt and luggage, then boarding line, and soon you'd find yourself in the boat. The boat itself is very comfortable and on time. I always enjoy taking lomprayah.
★★★★☆ Jul 6, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Everything was fine and went smoothly. Staff were very friendly, especially on the train. Train was loud and bumpy so didn't get great sleep, but that's how it goes. Apparently the Express 85 is the most comfortable train, so try for that one. Bus in Chumphon got there about 5:40 and left at 6:00. Ferry left at 7:30.
★★★★★ Jul 6, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Great, on time and well organised. Connection times are wrong so don't stress, everything effectively communicated at all times.
★★★★★ Jul 2, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
The ferry ride surpassed our expectations. There were plenty of space, the seats were comfortable and the air-conditioning was superb. Could get a little cold so be sure to pack a jacket. The crew were very polite and friendly, and efficient in loading and unloading the luggages. They would announce the name of the destinations loudly through the speakers so you can sleep in peace during the ride without fear of missing your stop. 12go is a great service to use, being completely transparent about the price and thoroughly explaining how the train and ferry system works. Would definitely recommend using 12go if you're thinking of travelling in Thailand! :)
★★★★★ Jun 26, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Fantastic. Organized, friendly staff...everything went smoothly. I do wish we'd gotten more info about how to get to the DOB building to pick up our tickets, though. We spent a very long, hot, scary 20 minutes making our way across three intersections of multi-lane Bangkok traffic to get there--only to find out we could have walked under the streets through the nice safe subway ; )

Prompt pick-up, quick service and a comfortable passage. The only issue I had is the fact that the catamaran staff chuck out all the luggage on the pier before the passengers are allowed to come off.
