Everything was fine except the lady on ticket counter who were not able to interpret the voucher mailed by12go to me. She wasted our time for 15 minutes and we were at great risk to miss our bus as we reached their just 1 minute before departure. She were asking for the ticket id again and again although it was mentioned on the voucher but probably in a different format. The driver of bus was also very rude and didn't understand language. Rest of things were very good.

Fine! They took 4 bus tickets from Kuala Lumpur to Perlis. The Wi-Fi in the hotel was bad, constantly disappeared and accidentally turned out to double the payment for one participant, and one was left without a ticket. Wrote in tech support. I have never met such a quick response from Internet services. Literally within an hour the problem was solved.

Your ticket service was excellent and the train trip within Malaysia was great the Thai part of the journey was a little bit slower and not as comfortable, but of course that is not your fault.
