Good boat good service night person

The sleeperboat ride was great, comfortable and clean. The van ride after was very bumpy. He drove very fast, which was scary because there were no belts. The last boat to phi phi made us sick. Everyone was nauseous. But that wasn’t the fault of the captain.

Very little info as we were moving along, bus stopped only for 10mns, that had to be enough to use WC and grab something to eat.The Ferry to Phi Phi was old and painfully slow, the engine sounded as if it would break down at any moment. We arrived half hour later at 5pm. The positive of the experience is that all transport is sorted out for you.

Comfortable journey and highly organised. Each time we got off a boat / bus we were immediately directed as to where to go next. Really well organised. Last boat was a bit old so it wasn’t the nicest, rest of the transportation was modern.

We didn't had any problem during this whole trip. The only thing that I must say is that one of the boats AC was very cold and everyone was shivering.

Long journey but there’s always staff telling you where you need to go which is great. First ferry was extremely bumpy and was seasick for the whole ride but that’s not their fault. Just pack some travel sickness tablets!
