departure and arrival were fine. we came to a place where we had to wait, just fine with waiting. But we ended up waiting for two hours and did not hear notice when we were leaving. The car was good.

Все круто и супер по времени. Но последний переезд после парома был на тук туке, где багаж везут вверху. Еще на станции женщина сказала, что по адресу наш отель в Краби не найдет, давай фото отеля или телефон, чего не было. Странный подход, я ей даже на мапс ми показывала, где он. В итоге она сама нашла фото в интернете, и сказала, что поняла. Нет слов))

During the bus trip after the ferry someone went through one of our bags. This was the only moment we were not with the bag. The bag was in the luggage compartment of the bus so it had to be a member of the staff. Nothing seems to be missing. Just wanted to mention it!

On one hand, it was nice to be pick up from our hotel door and dropped off directly at our destination, and the company did deliver this: transport from A to B. On the other hand, the trip is a little chaotic and they don't give you much information about the itinerary. We changed from a van to a bus, to a ferry, to another bus, to another van, but along the way it was quite hard to find out what would be the next step. When we got off the ferry, for instance, there was nobody from the company to tell us which bus to take. We had to keep asking around to find our way, and there were a lot of other tourists as lost as we were. Then they sent us a minibus that wasn't big enough for all the passengers, so we had to get off that minibus and wait for yet another bus... Anyway. A lot of confusion. And one of the drivers (the one that picked us up at from our hotel in Samui) was driving like a crazy person and nearly ran into another vehicle twice! All in all, we were glad that we made it from A to B, but the level of organization needs serious improvement.

Boat was very dirty especially toilets. Bus was fine and comfortable but again toilets were horrific!!! Over we were Late by about 1 hour so not too bad however we have an additional bus to get on that we didn’t know about, the drive did apologies and dropped us at our hotel as a good will gesture.

Boat was 1 hour late departing and then took an hour longer on the boat crossing so in the end we were 2 hours late. Not sure if the boat was perhaps not working properly because it was definitely NOT travelling at a good speed and this might explain the delays?

The ferry was late, the process to board was really long and unnecessarily complicated, our bags were literally thrown into a pile. We then got to the terminal to change to a coach and the representative stuck the sticker on our skin which fell off because we were sweaty and we almost weren’t allowed onto the coach even though we had all of our tickets & bookings printed out. The coach stank of urine. Once we got to krabi, we were dropped off in a bush and then had to fight though a crowd to get our bags. We then had to find out how to get our connection to ao nang which was basically just being shouted at in thai. We got to our location but it was a very very very stressful process.
