The trip took from 1030 till 1445. They try to make you pay extra for hotel drop. You just have to be firm about it

The pick up was for between 10 and 10:30, we were picked up after 11 so a lot of waiting around only to be drove to a bus terminal where we were offloaded and told to wait for another bus. On the drive back with the same company the driver was driving so badly that I was travel sick which never happens to me.

Everything was okay, but the description of the travel itself was wrong. I.e. we had to wait half an hour in some kind of a bus station, where we were distributed between various buses.

The vehicle was not a bus but a mini van of a smaller kind. The departure was delayed about 30 minutes, the staff did not inform us about the details until we asked. Finally we arrived in time.

The ride was great and the driver very sensible on the roads. A toilet at the sea pearl depot would have been useful!

Got me from A and B and felt safe with the driver! Would use again. Only con was the ticket told me to go to sea pearl in Krabi for collection half hour before departure time. After waiting, I was then taxied 5 mins down the road and had to wait another 50 mins for the actual transfer. I could’ve saved time and gone straight to that pick up point.
