The food options are very limited on the ferry and they are not vegetarian friendly. The remaining things were fine. They do not reach out to you for communication. So you will have to do that yourself. The good thing is they are punctual.

Bad communication by transport from hotel - we used a usuall taxi instead of the right; a big chaos by boarding to the bus in the pier. The cruise by the ferry and the tour by bus were OK.

Старый раздолбанный автобус. Скрипит, дребезжит, но везёт.

The time to pick up is too soon, so we have to wait about 45 mins at the bus terminal and about 30 mins at the ferry station. The speed of ferry is slow, but the bus transfer to airport is fast.

Great. Everything was on time, and the directions were clear. No problems whatsoever. Had to a little bit guess where the bus was after the ferry, but when I asked they confirmed everything for me (the signs were wrong, but the people directing me were correct.)

Positive experience. Just let yourself be guided by the organization, they seem to have everything under control. Somehow they pick you up and take you where you need to go. Thank you

We had an online booking and when we arrived to the pier we find out that we can't check in there...so we had to go to the agent's company office with all our luggage, which was about 750m away, and then all the way back to the pier... It would be helpful to inform people on the e-ticket about the place of check in. Other than that, rest of the journey was fine, we got to the airport on time.

1. Вообще непонятно было, где находится офис компании phantip. В итоге еле еле нашли вдали от пирса. Там нам дали пластиковые карты и наклейки. 2. Дальше пришлось ехать до пирса (ладно не отпустили таксиста). 3. На пирсе засунули карточки в турникеты и прошли. 4. В назначенное время катер не пришёл, оказывается отправление на 30 минут позже, чем в ваучера. Я перенервничал, так как умная дальше был самолёт из Сураттани. Но в итоге уехали 5. Катер был большой и очень удобный. Даже было кафе. 6. Автобуса пришлось минут 15 ждать. Ноты итоге во время доехали
