The Boonsiri transportation company was outstanding! I was very impressed with their service and should the need arise, I will definitely use them again. Thank you for the great experience. And 12go.asia was very easy to use once again.. It is my goto site for bookings!!

It all went well, and there was only a small delay, but there was no info given: where should we wait and for how long? Big bus or small van and how does the transfer work? Where are the stops of the bus? A bit confusing...

We had to wait long. Mini van took us opposite in direction and transferred to bus. Which made travel time longer then expected.

Ferry and bus should be more coordinated, we waited 45 min at the Ban Phe pier. Also, bus should go all the way to Ban Phe and not stop in the middle, the second bus we got was incredibly crowded and smelly.

The bus left Rayong 40 minutes later, the rest of the route was ok except traffic jams on the way to BK, that is way it took 5 hours.

no ferry, no info about it not sailing, got a ferry ticket when I arrived at the Na Dan Pier - couldn't get any information about the minivan or the location of Boonsiri office in Ban Phe (ended up in a speedboat to Ban Phe), No one to receive you at Ban Phe Pier, you had to find Boonsiri sales office by yourself, wait for 45 minutes, then you were transported in Minivan to a freeway roadside where the Boonsiri Koh Chang tourist bus picked you up (I have booked a Minivan transfere). It was already full so if you traveled in a group you couldn't sit together. Could have saved 650 Bath and 1 hour, by taking speed boat directly from Koh Samet hotel and public bus or paid 950 Baht more and taken speed boat and own taxi direct from my Koh Samet hotel to Bangkok hotel and saved 3 hours. My mistake!

When coming to the Island form Bangkok everything went perfect! When leaving the island we has a bit longer wait and traffic in Bangkok so we probably arrived 20minutes later from schedule. Polite service and would use 12GO again for sure!
