smooth transport, ok, you receive not a lot information or explanation. Nevertheless, you arrive with your voucher, your luggage get's on the boat, you sit down and 1:3 hour later your are in Phuket. Nothing more, nothing less ;)

Pier almost Fallen, because there was too many people. There was too many people, because every boat from TigerLine was too late at least 45 minut's. They put my backpack and 2 other laydy's in wrong boat. They dit it because in the pier was an absolute mess. 4 boat in seme time and every boat was too late. We get our lagguge in the evening. Customer service work great, no problemen at all. Boat are great, problemen was only with "Koh Lanta Pier" Crew.

Apart from our driver dropping us off at the wrong hotel (there seems to be several Airport Residences ????) it was once again a pleasant, reliable and punctual service. A note though: There is not enough seating, which is strange, as the ferry takes on more people than it has seats for. We stood at the railings and then sat on deck, as did many people. The view made up for it though, but it does make one think about life vests and what happens in case of an emergency.

Book the ferry as have 2 young kids (3yrs & 7m) and didn’t want to take the speed boat again as hadn’t had the best experience with our inbound trip. Chaokoh were fantastic... boat was comfortable and staff super helpful and friendly. The boat was full by the time we got on so gave us seats in the air con VIP lounge and brought my little boy chocolate biscuits. Helped us with out bags and let us put them near exit of the boat. Would definitely travel with again!

Positive: Comfortable departure pier in the shadow with lots of chairs and benches, toilets and a drinks bar, voucher of 12Go accepted at welcome desk without anything further, luggage and we ourselves immediately labelled with a destination sticker, luggage properly sorted and prepared for transport, boat in good shape, professional crew - driver and co-driver always very attentionally watching out, seats and live-vests for everybody, luggage well stowed and secured and handled with care, comfortable quick direct transfer ride reducing the departure delay by half an hour. Negative: one hour of delay of departure due to waiting for other boats from small islands around Lanta, very little and hardly understandable informations about what to do and what's happening at the pier.

Fairly efficient progression of transports: shuttle truck, 2 passenger ferries, taxi van. Reps mostly helped us along our way but you need to stay aware because they can lose track of you now and again which could possibly result in a missed leg and a later than expected arrival on the other end. This did nearly happen to us with the second taxi-van but it all ended well and we made the total trip in just about 7 hours. It was advertised as a 6 hour transport but not guaranteed so it’s all good.

Communication from the check in person at the pier could have been better. She didn’t tell me that I was waiting for a land vehicle to take me to a different pier so it was a bit confusing and I nearly missed the lift and therefore boat!

Good service, ran a little later than scheduled time, but no complaints. I would recommend this company for a reliable and quick way to travel between Koh Lanta and Phuket.

Nothing to complain about. Smooth procedures. For those people who are unsure whether to buy a taxi(van) ticket, do it. I payed 250 baht to naiyang/airport. A very good price.

Our driver failed to pick us up from our first hotel in Koh Lanta but luckily our hotel staff offered to take us to the pier if not we would have missed the boat. The boat journey was rough so if you get seasick easily I do not recommend this, however, the staff were perfect at advising where to sit to be the least affected and they also handed sick bags out in preparation. Finally, our driver to the hotel in Phuket complained the entire journey as our hotel was further out than his usual, continually huffing and swearing.
