We traveled 8 hours from Krabi to Koh Samui. They promised 5 hours. Bus driver destroy suite case of my daughter, even when i told him to be careful. Employeds of seatran wasn't profesinal. When they solved our problem, they speaking thai and lauhthing on us, thinking we dont know they talk about us... Thank to their unprofesionality we missed our ferry, so we had more delay. Not very happy.

Unnecessary waiting for main bus at the departure bus station in Krabi Town for 2 hours after pickup. Toilet at bus station is payable, but of very low quality. Main bus from Krabi to Ferry pier stinked from the toilet inside. But after departure from bus station the journey was fast.

The trip was very well organised. Sally is incredibly enthusiastic guide, all the crew very nice and helpful, tasty lunch served on the Poda island....really fast boat compared to traditional Thai wooden ship.. All perfect, timing planned to avoid crowds. The trip could have been a bit longer, to spend more time on the Poda island beach.

The bus ride was fine. The ferry ride was also good. However, I thought the ferry ride was included in the ticket purchase from 12go, but when we got to the ferry station, we had to buy ferry tickets again. Not a huge expense but still annoying.

Short delay in departure (30 mins) that was communicated at check in and made no difference to our final arrival time. Comfortable bus and ferry. Very organised. Would use them again over many other operators for sure! :)

Great service, It was very easy to check in for the journey in Krabi Town. They've explained everything. Tagged the bags, tagged us depending on the destination. Van was comfortable, and we got to the pier on time. In the pier people guided us to the correct boat. The boat was very comfy and clean. In Koh Samui , they helped us to get on the correct minivan that dropped us of at the hotel ( we paid some additional money for the drop off service)

The ride was very smooth and on time. What was not so good was the squeezed and crowded sitting in the ferry. Ladies at the bus could show a bit more of the famous Thai smile, plus a small bottle of watter would be more than welcome on such a long drive. Thank you.

Pros: The bus had wifi. Cons: - The bus was a bit cramped, - - communication was terrible - i payed extra for shuttle taxi to my hostel, there was no shuttle so it was a waste of money to pay extra. Just buy a bus to the ferry depot and do the rest yourself, itll save money

Air con was broken on the bus and on the ferry too, watched it leak all over a man and then when it was taken apart towards the end of the journey it let out an awful smell, apart from that good company to go with
