The driver was an hour too late. The van was kept close on the ferry from Koh Lanta to the main land. The driver didn t say a word to explain the trip. We had a stop in Krabi. There we took a bus to Koh samui. At the ferry we all could not go on board because we had no valued tickets. I ran back tot he driver who almost left. He was forgotten to buy the tickets for the ferry. When that was done, we were just in time for the ferry. At Koh Samui pier you have to walk past all the taxi and vans to the so called booked vans. There are the people and vans to bring you to the hotel. That is of you have the transfer to your hotel included. So everything went okay but could be better.

Except fact that they picked us up one hour later than they were supposed to and hotline phone Number didnt work which made us only more nervous, everything worked out fine and we even got to our destination on promised time.

Geboekt vanuit Nederland Even spannend of dit goed zou gaan aangezien we dit voor het eerst zo boekten. Bus was 5 minuten eerder in ons hotel waar we klaar stonden. Bus ging eerst via Krabi, iets om en hier overgestapt in een groter busje(bus). Wachten was 10 minuten daar. Busrit was perfect geregeld en in de haven werden de kaarten voor ons gekocht. In de haven van koh samui stonden meerdere busjes van dit bedrijf klaar om iedereen naar verschillende delen van het eiland te brengen waardoor je snel in je hotel was. Bussen waren luxe en met airco. *****. We reizen graag opnieuw met 12go.asia

Other than the 45 minute wait in the morning it was a much better transfer

In general, everything worked fine. At 8.30 a AC Van picked us up from our hotel in Lanta and then brought us to Krabi. Here we changed to a bigger bus going to the ferry port Donsek and managed to take the boat going to Samui at 15.00. At Samui Port you have to walk outside the harbour to find the Pantip associated Minivans that bring you to the Hotel. Sometimes we were a little bit confused what is going on, why we have to change bus now and so on... But you can trust the stuff, they know what they are doing. Make sure you always stay with some kind of a ticket...

While scheduled departure was set at 8 AM, pick up was at 8:30 leaving us with a 1h wait. The booking however stated +-30 minutes so they were probably on time! We had nearly 1h wait in Krabi then changed to a bus (bit rundown) to the pier for Koh Samui where after a few minutes the driver handed out tickets for the ferry. At Nathon pier on Samui we were a bit uncertain then remembered to walk out (this means completely out to the main road) to meet with the drop off transfer. Due to hotels location of some customers and probably to avoid traffic, the driver routed across the hills with a lot of up and down and bending. After 1h-1,5h we were successfully dropped off at the hotel.

The trip from Ko Lanta to Ko Samui went quiet well. On Ko Samui we needed some help finding the booked Taxi. Once in the Taxi the driver drove to the opposite direction to what we needed. So we knew right away it would take some time and the other passengers would be let out first. When we were already driving around Ko Samui for one hour and were the last one's on the bus, the driver told us to change into another taxi. In that Taxi 3 other passengers were let out first before we made it finally to our Hotel. The whole Ko Samui trip took us about 1,5 hours and in total we were 2 hours later in the Hotel as we were supposed to be. But as I said... the rest of the trip was good and comfortable.
