Ferry was not so comfortable. Bus was ok, but little bit late. Good value for the price. Waiting for the transfer at Krabi office to hotel took long time but the ride was quick.

Great service from phantip travel! My friends and I arrived late at the travel office and both the people in the office and the taxi driver all worked together to get us to the boat asap! Couldn’t recommend more and made for a funny story :)

Everything worked out perfectly! The driver offered us to drive us to the hotel for some extra cash and we arrived at 7 o’clock at the hotel. It was very easy and good organized.

This was my first time using this service. I actually accidentally did not buy the ticket I wanted in time so I had to pay for this more expensive transportation service, but it was worth it. This was so relaxing and stress-free even compared to flying. I was picked up from my hotel and the driver took care of everything including the ferry. I even got there earlier. 5 star experience for sure!

Departed 20 minutes later than expected but the bus was waiting at Donsak and departed shortly after we boarded. From there everything went fine and we arrived in the expected time frame.
