It was on the pricey side - but considering the distance it wasn't terrible, and the fact ferry routes seem slightly cut down still I didn't have many other options. This was easy - driver was on time, car was comfortable, and got there pretty quick and safely. No complaints.

All went fine intil we got to Krabi and the crew dropped one of our luggage in the sea. Luckily we noticed and pointed it out to the crew as they had not even noticed.
