Chumphon to Koh Tao Destination Reviews

Did not account for delayed train, had to find own transport to pier
Ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah (ลมพระยา), Jun 30, 2022
Really good experience. Our train was delayed to Chumpon, leading to not reaching the 7 o’clock scheduled boat to Koh Tao. nNvertheless an agent met us at the train station, told us wait until 11, had a nice time at Cafe Mama on the other side of the street. Ar 11 the mini van appeard, drove us to the pier, and took the boat to Koh Tao. No problem even if the train was delayed😀 An, no extra fees! Thank you for a nice experience👍

Despite having paid for the transfer from the airport to the port - we were told that we had not paid and would have to pay for another taxi service. They said that it was because the taxi was full - it was not. We argued that the ferry is only 650bh and having paid 1000bh it was the fee for the taxi included. Eventually we argued and stood our ground enough to be let onto the taxi, but many people (foreigners) ended up paying more to get the taxi over to the port! Beware of this scam! The ferry journey was otherwise fine. If you book the taxi from chumphon to Koh Tao - it means you leave the airport at 10, arrive at the ferry 11 and then wait until 13 to get on the ferry. It’s a long day with a long wait.

The Catamaran had some undefined problem. We had to wait a couple of hours till a smaller boat came to bring some of us to the destination.

Excellent!! Thanks so much

Accuratly on time. The speed boat is fast. There are life jackets on the seat and people seem to follow the common sense. You'll need to show passport, full vaccination certificate for check in. You don't need to print the PDF out.

Really good support from 12Go and Fame Tour and Service. They were really friendly

We were informed with a few hours notice that the trip was cancelled and found it difficult to reach you to support us on this case. Fortunately, the operator was kind enough to help us and we eventually succeeded in our travel plans.

We were on along holiday with lots to carry. I am 61 and have titanium screws in my shoulder. Carrying out bags down the long pier was almost impossible. Please provide trolleys an/or Porter service. Why not take the bags for stowing from passengers at the land end of the pier. Would save your around time time and be a such a beautiful experience did you passengers.

The trip went smoothly and we arrived on time. The air conditioning inside the ferry is too powerful. It’s freezing.
