We had to wait 2 hours more than the 3 hours treat we were supposed to wait at the beginning. It was so annoying

On 14 hours long journey the bus driver got to the final point 6 minut before scheduled arrival. That's s very good!

Everything went fine but I don't understand why they don't have Wi-Fi and phone charging station in the seets. It's 2020...

A long ride with a bus with a lot of experience
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Feb 23, 2020
Everything was okay and the trip was comfortable enough. The bus arrived to the destination 1 hour late and we didn't get any notification about it. Other than that, I would recommend this trip!
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Feb 23, 2020
I think overall the value was ok, bus and boat from Bangkok to Koh Tao for 25gbp, but the buses need to be upgraded or seats replaced. They were kind of falling apart! My allocated wouldn't recline, the next couldn't help but recline, and most of the seat cushions were falling off. The AC was also non existent, it was boiling on the return journey.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Feb 21, 2020
2 stars because price was good. Should charge more and spend money upgrading the fleet. One hour late getting to destination in a leaky bus.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Feb 19, 2020
Smooth transition from boat to bus. Waiting for the bus to board was not clear. Informed what bus to board but not when we can board because the bus was visible 30 meters down the road.

Lomprayah boat is a speed boat if you want to save time, make sure to take this boat. The connection by bus to Bangkok Khaosan Road was good too and this is a very central location. We arrived with a small, 25 mins delay.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Jan 21, 2020
Very well organized . Thank you.

Really easy, well communicated and organised, fixed seats in the bus. Totally recommend
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Jan 18, 2020
The 12go asia service is excellent, no complaints here. I rated only three stars because I preferred travelling with Lomprayah rather than Songserm, comfort is a bit better although the ticket is a bit more expensive. I chose to stay on the sun deck on the ferry to enjoy the view. It was nice, although the boat is quite old. For the bus trip from Chumpon to Bangkok, there’s literally no room for legs. There was a tall guy next to me and the person seating in front of him could not lower his seat without crushing the guy’s legs. The poor guy had to sit with his legs sticking out in the aisle the entire trip : / I felt sorry for him. I’m small but with my backpack in front of me, I still found I had very little room left. Otherwise the trip was not too bad for the price.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Jan 11, 2020
Really good service everything happened as expected. Very well organised. The coaches are very comfortable for the 8hr drive. Really enjoyed sitting on the top deck of the of the boat soaking up the sun!
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Jan 10, 2020
Ferry ride wasn't bad, comfortable enough. But once in Chumpon, waited 2.5 hrs for the bus in a place with limited food and facilities. Felt like sitting in someones house serving noodles. Why can't they simply coordinate to fix this? The bus ride to Bangkok wasn't too bad either. Just bad logistics on the ferry leaving 30 min late and waiting for the bus for 2.5 hrs.
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Jan 6, 2020
A decent service and able to book relatively close to departure (booked the day before). It's a long journey and the bus is as comfortable as you can expect. Toilet was broken though and there's only one rest stop so don't drink too much water before departing just in case! Arrived early in Bangkok, and the drop off is right in the centre meaning there's plenty of options if you need to pass time.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Jan 5, 2020
Ferry trip was good although a bit delayed. But the bus Ride was not that good. the bus was Very old and not confortable.
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Jan 4, 2020
Ship ride was okay, but near the end some guy sitting near the refreshments kiosk started blasting acid-rock and switching between songs. It was unpleasant and disruptive. Even with earplugs I could hear it. Others were annoyed too, and I wondered why staff didn't say anything ... then I realized when he stood up that he himself was staff (wearing a Songserm uniform)...
As for the bus - this one was slightly less old, and the ride was quieter (the last bus rattled and squeaked), BUT the toilet was out of order, and we only made one rest stop .. so good luck

All was quite nice and comfortable
ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah, Dec 2, 2019
No blankets, no water, no wifi, no lights inside the bus,so you can not even read a book, you can only sit during 10 hours and wait for the stop
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Dec 2, 2019
The ferry was nice and clean. The coach gave you a number so I knew where is was sitting and the seats were so close together
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Nov 30, 2019
All connections were ok. On the catamaran I was littlr bit afraid of the wave and high speed. The bus stop on the bus station to take a dinner was perfect.
ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah, Nov 26, 2019
Ferry and bus were OK, AC was not working very well on bus so was a bit hot but fine when sunset. Dropped is off just near Khao San road. Bus was almost an hour late.
ferry Speedboat, Lomprayah, Nov 18, 2019
My biggest suggestion is get some sleep before you get the speedboat. I spent my last night in koh Tao having too much fun and that speedboat was what I would imagine hell on earth. But not any fault of the company. The drivers were actually very accommodating and helped me find comfort with the slight seasickness.. The bus was also pretty fine other than the girl behind me who was mad at me for using the reclining seat so kept jamming her knees purposely into the back of my seat for whatever reason. I will always always do my best to book with lampraya in the future vs songserm.

Ferry left on time, was clean but moved quite a bit. Luckily I took my motion sickness tablets. Definitely do if are prone to get sea sick. Adds were without volume, so it seems they listened to the complaints about that. At the pier you check in again and get a bus number. Bus left at around 12.30 pm. There is one food stop. Unfortunately we arrived around an hour late, but that was due to Bangkok traffic I guess. Not too bad for a bus (the ticket says leave 5 hours minimum to any connections, so if you don't you shouldn't complain if you miss it). It was just a bit strange that the bus driver stopped a couple of times on the hard shoulder on the motorway. Otherwise than that he drove very safe. The last thing is that at booking it looks like they stop at the khao san road office. They don't. It's a bit farther north, but very easy walking distance. It definitely is planned, as all busses stopped there and tuk tuks where waiting. But maybe that was just my misunderstanding? Overall everyone was friendly and we arrived safe with not much delay. Would take again.

Very comfortable. Almost on time - delayed by 10m.

It is a good, cheap and easy wat to go from Bangkok to Ko Tao. Everything is well arranged.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Oct 22, 2019
The ferry was great, well organised and almost on time. The bus was grim - eight and a half hours with only one brief stop, and the roof leaked when raining, meaning we got a free shower every time the bus braked or turned a corner. Also, bus guys, top tip - please wash the windows more than once a year so at lest passengers can see out!
I met the guys in the 12Go Asia office - they're actually real people, and most helpful and friendly. Thanks guys.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Oct 16, 2019
Should have the bus seat booking when check in at Maehaad pier. So passengers will not rushing out of the catamaran for getting the better seat on the bus.
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Oct 12, 2019
It was a bit late and very uncomfortable on the bus
ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Oct 4, 2019
The ferry and the bus both were alright, relatively clean and somewhat comfortable.
That didn't really matter though because the bus ride still sucked.
We were supposed to arrive at 5 am in bangkok (which we also actually did) but the lights were turned on again at 12 after half the people were already sleeping and we were actually woken up so we could get out of the bus and buy something to eat and drink, which meant that most people sat there for 40 minutes doing nothing. After we got back on the bus they didn't turn off the lights untill 1:30 am and the people behind us talked until 2:00 am and didn't care that we asked them to quiet down a little bit.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Sep 30, 2019
Everything went to schedule. No problems with the ferry or the bus running late. Initially seems a bit disorganised, but it all works well.
The food at the Chumphon pier was really good. Spicy, but delicious nonetheless and great value.
The place we stopped (Thap Sakae) mid bus journey to Bangkok from Chumphon was a delightful surprise! It was a great big place with lots of food, drinks and whatnot on offer.
Only gripe is that seats are really small (built for a smaller stature than us larger westerners!) and there’s minimum legroom for such a long bus journey.
Unceremoniously dumped on Khao San road with no idea how to get anywhere. You just have a load of taxis hounding you for service. If there was even an information board with a map, where the bus stops, would be a huge help.
All in all, a good journey.
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Sep 24, 2019
Very good trip
Bus Express, Lomprayah, Sep 23, 2019
Lack of information regarding the trip. I didn’t know if it was possible to get any kind of food. I travelled with this company two times, and they seem to struggle in the process with information. The people who gave information in English in the bus talked English so fast that the information didn’t come out right. So I was more confused that informed.

Fast smooth ride on ferry, issue of roaches on the seats, in the main cabin.
Ride on bus was smooth, seats and cleanliness was ok.

ferry High Speed Ferry, Songserm, Sep 3, 2019
I'm usually not a person throwing up - neither on a ship nor in "normal" situations. Well this time I did (but it was also a rough sea). The ship was old, sometimes it smelled like gas and the railing didn't seem super secure to me. Inside water tripped from the ceiling and in general it just wasn't a comfi boat (even though they tried to make comfi seats and play a movie in English). Nevertheless the staff was nice.In the bus it smelled like all kinds of stuff - kinda disgusting. I'll definitely recommend going with another organisation and choose VIP or VIP 24 when using the bus.
