In time and decent
Ferry Express, Phantip 1970 (พันทิพย์ 1970), Jul 24, 2022

The van transfer was bad. Too many people in the van and not enough space for the bags. The driver stopped too often to deliver packages or make purchases (pallets of beer).

After the ferry we had to change 3 minivans and a tuktuk cab and also waited in the middle of no where for the last one. When he arrived the driver made a lot of stops, non of them was for the passengers (except when we waited for someone an the airport - which caused another delay). The stops were mainly for the driver to take or pass something, and we arrived at 8:30 pm instead of at 7pm.

Driver was speeding, overtook other cars when you can't see cars coming towards us... For tall people there was not enough space in the van

Eerste deel van boot naar Surat Thani verliep prima. overstap op een ander busje was ok. De chauffeur naar Khao Sok werd constant gebeld in de bus waardoor hij was afgeleid van het rijden. Daarnaast werden er op diverse plekken nog Thaise mensen opgehaald. Al met al had de transfer dus sneller gekund

Everything well organized. Bought fresh fruit after leaving the catamaran. The second van was already waiting in Surat Thani, but there was still time for a toilet break. Arrived one hour early at the main junction at Khao Sok, from where we organized our travel to the hotel ourselves.

Jolly travel had a very poor air conditioning plus the driver had smelly food. No washroom break was offered as well. Driver didn’t speak English and didn’t communicated his plans to us. Arrived one hour earlier.
