General notes

A few tips for your trip. If you are tall and need more legroom, vans might be too cramped for you. Try to get either the front seats or the ones behind the driver.

Sit on the right side and you will be rewarded with a beautiful view of the sea if you are traveling during the day.

There is an unpaved stretched of the road en route between El Nido and Puerto Princesa though it is not too long.

Both vans and buses make a short bathroom break during the trip where you will also be able to buy some snacks.

Passenger reviews out of total 375 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.

How is it possible that in 11-places van were 12 passangers? I paid for my own place, not for sharing place with someone else. I had the joy of sitting down at the back. And on the three places we sat four adults. Great dissapointment. Fortunately, despite the morning's delay in El nido, we arrived to Puerto princessa in time.

The driver drove very fast, causing the journey to be very unpleasant. Tight windy roads that were very bumpy he was speeding down. Beeping At anyone that got in his way, nearly caused accident twice. Wasn’t clear how long for dinner and only stopped once. We travelled from princessa to El Nido a few days earlier and that trip was great. Couldn’t have been far from different!

When I arrived at the corong corong terminal, the handler said I booked for 9:30AM. On my voucher it was really writter 8AM... The lunch break is bad, really bad place, bad food and too expensive for what it is, you better skip lunch. It's a place where many vans go to, as it was the place to have lunch... The driver's driving was OK, little bit fast, but I don't mind. Finally arrived at Puerto Princesa around 3PM, as we had to stop/pick up/drop people several times. I recommend to book this shuttle if you are not in a hurry, price is fair compare to other companies, Vans have cooling systems, drivers are good and space inside is OK.

we went to the lexxus terminal but people there were confused. they told us our schedule is 1pm but in our voucher, which we booked is 8am. and so they asked a different van to cater to us. the van is small not like the one we rode going from puerto princesa to el nido which is spacious. this van going el nido to puerto princesa is not spacious. the driver drove very, very, very fast that for every curve in the road my cheek would stick very tightly close to the glass of the van or my head would bump very hard on it. i would sway very hard to the right and left for every curve. after that ride, i felt sick. it feels like i went into a boxing match or i did a one whole day activity in a gym. but, good thing, we left 9:30am and reached puerto princesa at 2:30pm.
