Great trip, amazing team and incredible sights. Tour didn't seem rushed or forced, so glad we booked the speedboat as well!

We shoud be picked up at the hotel, but nobody came, so we had to transfer to the pier by taxi. There was some lady which gave us our tickets after contacting the company support. Next thing is that we had booked a transport to Phuket bus station, but the driver stopped somewhere earlier, some guy walked into the bus and told everybody that he will transport us to the hotel for 200 bath per person. We have followed him to his office where some other guy wanted to trick us by paying him more money. After that all people there were very rude. I really do not recommend this company.

Overall it was good and all worked out just fine. Though would have liked more explanations about the journey- how long is ferry ride, bus ride etc... we never knew what’s next step... should have more detailed explanation on booking site..

Took way longer than expected came in at least 3 hours late meant we couldn’t complete everything we wanted to do in Phuket. Stopped at random places ie on the road to allow random taxi drivers to try and convince people that they were their transfer then charged them a huge amount for it. Luckily we weren’t scammed but watched others be scammed make sure you have your wits about you if you’re booking this but there are cheaper ways and I would definitely say go for them as this definitely isn’t worth the money.

Ferry ride was good. Bus ride was terrible. Aircon was barely working, was hot and sweaty. Had to swap busses 2 or 3 times. We also arrived in Phuket 2.5 hours later than we were supposed to, and there was no traffic. Not sure how they could miss judge the trip time so bad

Said we arrive at 6.30pm and we didn’t arrive till after 8pm. The taxi arrangement at the end to the hotel wasn’t great it didn’t divide between the three beaches so had to wait for all three beaches before we got to ours. The ticket says taxi and it wasn’t it was a bus with 10 other people

Arrived horribly late, over 3 and a half hours over the given time. I wouldn't say anything about being 1 hour late, or possibly even 2, but almost 4 hours are just unacceptable.

It was really handy to get the whole trip booked in one. The price was really good. Our only trouble was we were picked up two hours ahead of time and dropped off an hour later making the journey quite long. Otherwise very comfortable and economical.

Good value for money. Bus arrived in Phuket about 2 hours late but that was somehow expected, given the earlier reviews and warnings given from 12goasia when buying the ticket. Ferry was smooth despite windy day. Before the bus trip to Phuket started we were sold taxi tickets on the bus. These were supposed to take us to our hotel in Phuket. These tickets turned out to be unusable once in Phuket, since they were somehow issued to the wrong address. This despite me showing the correct hotel adress to the taxi ticket saleswoman.

Добрый день! Путешествовали в июне 2019 года. Маршрут: Пхукет - о. Самуи - Пхукет. 5 часов на автобусе и где-то 1,5 часа на катамаране. Отправление в 10.00. прибыть лучше пораньше, минут за 20, оформить билет. Автобус нормальный, не новый, но вполне комфортный. Есть туалет (очень маленький, но это же автобус), уже большой плюс. Работает кондишка, не сильно, в автобусе комфортно. По дороге подсаживают пассажиров из аэропорта, которых привозят на микроавтобусе. Одна остановка через 2 часа, минут на 20-30 (на станции есть нормальный туалет, магазинчик, готовят еду на улице), дальше без остановок. Катамаран тоже не новый уже, но вполне приемлемо, закрытый, мест много, внутри кодишка, можно выходить на верхнюю палубу. Сначала идет медленно по мелкой воде, потом разгоняется, по бортам и сзади шлейф брызг, прикольно. Обратно катамаран задержался на пол часа, но в итоге автобус пришёл на Пхукет вовремя в 20.00. Тут же предлагают трансфер, относительно недорого. Мы взяли в аэропорт, по 200 бат с человека. Единственное, пришлось раскашелиться при изменении билета. Первый раз я менял время отправления обратно на 12.45, заплатил по 208 бат с билета. А второй раз, в связи с переносом вылета самолёта, пришлось менять дату. Мне написали, что по правилам, вносить изменения дважды нельзя, нужно делать возврат билетов (теряется примерно 70% стоимости) и покупать новый. Так, что будьте внимательны при бронировании.

Communication about the trip should’ve been more clear. 1. Drop off locations were not clear. I got off the boat and was given choices I wasn’t prepared for. Had I known, I would’ve gone with the airport drop off option and saved myself a significant cab fare. However, I wasn’t familiar enough with Phuket and had no time to look into the options to see which would be best. 2. We should’ve been told how much time we had at Sarat Thani to grab snacks or use the restroom before our bus would depart. And the time for the food stop could’ve been more clear as well.

The big bus dropped us off in the middle of nowhere on a main route about 7km from the airport. Unacceptable. Now they apologize by refunding 450 Baht. As strangers to the area, it is not about the currency only, but being in a country where very few people understand your language, this is not acceptable.

The journey was great. It took an hour longer than advertised as they pick up a lot of locals on the way, so make sure you are not on a tight schedule to catch a flight. Staff were friendly and very helpful as well.
