Wrong arrival location. You are not arriving at the night boat pier. You have to walk 15 min to get there

Well, I went to terminal 1 of the airport but it was at a busstation and that took a half our extra and we missed our drive. We had to pay again for an other bus.Thats the reason for the bad rating, not the drivers fault but 12go didn't explain clearly.

You are sitting on a bus for a few hours, but it is as comfortable as its gonna get. The bus was on time and I was even able to take one bus earlier, because I was there to early. That was no problem for them, quick and friendly service!

The overall journey was fine, on time, not too full. It was when we arrived there were the issues. We were charged 50 baht to get on a tuk tuk to go across the road and the same guy charged us 300 baht to put us in a “taxi” to Khanom. Dodgy staff at Pantip Surat Thani - watch out

Extremely hot van with negligible leg room. Made it impossible to get comfortable for the 5 hour journey. I’d had higher hopes for this considering this was supposed to be an upgrade to the larger bus, but I wish we had taken that instead.

Took about 4 hrs on total, quite a few scheduled and unscheduled stops, driver very safe and kindly dropped us to the railway station, some 14km outside Surat Thani. Would recommend, comfortable, good value and a pleasant experience.

A little crowded but in general was supportable. OK

Super smooth and very on time.

Driver did not stop at the railway station - which the service did the last time I used the same service; which on that occasion would have screwed 5 stars - by the time I realised what was going on and spoke to the driver, it left myself and a Thai lady with a 15km taxi ride to get back to the station.
