Hot line was responsive and useful

The transport van between Krabi and Surat seemed like it was about to die, was a very jumpy and noisy ride from the van. Other than that a really smoothly ran service and we'd recommend the company and would use them again.

Excellent for the price. There was one stop at suratthani where we swapped buses but not bad. They also offered to drive me to my hotel once we arrived at the pier for cheaper than a taxi would be

Was a great experience! The trip went by faster than scheduled and I got to Samui 2.5 hours earlier than I planned.

Very efficient and amazing for the money you are paying. Faultless system, all connections met. Had to call because we were to be picked up from pier at 8 am but they were very helpful on the phone and we were picked up 10 minutes later so dont hesitate to call if unsure. Long journey but worth the money. The staff at Phantip were very helpful and offered to organise taxi to our accommodation on Koh Samui.

All was well until we stopped to change buses and go to the port. Minimal communication as to which port was for who. Driver called Samui, where we were going, so we got off only to find out it was the wrong port. Luckily helpful staff at the port arranged a bike taxi to quickly take us both to the correct port and we were able to get a later boat. More communication needed, particularly when you use multiple companies to compete one booking!

We left almost 1 hour before the initial hour which is very good. From Krabi to Surat Thani town it took around 2 hours. Therefore, I arrived at 11am and I had to wait until 4pm to take a bus that would take me to the ferry (1h away from Surat Thani). I was told that if I wanted to leave earlier I had to pay. Then I was told the ferry was leaving at 6pm instead of 5pm. And as it takes time for all the cars to get in and out, I arrived not before than 8.30pm at Lipa Noi instead of 6.30pm. this company is not reliable in terms of time.

Couldn't say. Due to not reading carefully I was already in Surat Thani the day before. So instead of going back to Krabi I asked the lady of the Lompraya Office on the phone if I could get up the catamaran on the pier. She said no and sorry no refund since we were going the next day. I told her I did not call for a refund, but to get on the catamaran on the pier in Surat thani since we already paid for it. No sorry, she said. Guess she didn't understand English very well. Next time I will book directly from the office while I'm in Thailand instead of half a year before thru internet.
