Koh Samui to Krabi Destination Reviews

Great company but let down by the drivers. Don’t run on time and there is a pattern with the drivers we experienced. They were all rude

We were not dropped off at Krabi Bus Terminal (what we paid for). The bus driver didn‘t want to bring us to Krabi Bus Terminal…

Just be a little bit patient. People will help you as soon as the crowed of people was handled. Wait until they come back. We were the last persons there and were put in an other bus to our planned destination

The ferry was fine but the van/bus from Surat Thani to Krabi was not great, not comfortable and not enough room, no hold for luggage, you end up with your luggage in front of your knees.

Very poor communication from the company meant that the bus dropped us off at another location rather than the destination listed on our ticket. When we requested a transfer to the stop listed, we were met with laughs and were told to get a taxi at our own cost. In addition the driver drives like a maniac, which is to be expected.

Enjoyed the spacious place for a ride after all tiny speed boats. Would be even better if they offered shuttles from different parts of Koh Samui.

Bit of a disaster to be honest. Ferry was fine, hopped on a bus that we assumed was the last leg of the trip. Was dropped to a bus stop where everyone was separated onto mini-buses-had to wait over an hour. Was then crammed onto a mini-bus for 2 and a bit hours. Was supposed to arrived in Krabi for 1pm, got there after 3pm. Not what was advertised.

Got there on time and fine. The bus driver was super violent with our bags smashing them under the bus and breaking shampoo bottles in them. The bus smelled like pee for the 3 full hours we were in it too

It was a seamless process, and everything was on time and well connected. We reached earlier to Krabi main land, and were connected via an earlier bus, which was ready to leave. The bus service was perfect and we reached to Aonang Transfer 45 minutes before the expected arrival. Kudos to the managers!
