Passenger reviews out of total 1,403 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★★ Jan 14, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very Good driver.
★★★★☆ Jan 14, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus left on time, and it was a very comfortable trip. The only problem was the crazy driving. I just decided to close my eyes and not worry about a head on collision. You can’t eat on the bus and there are no toilets.
★★★★★ Jan 8, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Easy and cheap
★★★☆☆ Jan 4, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The location was quite far from train station (around 10mins walk)
★★★★☆ Jan 3, 2018 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very comfortable bus, good helpful bus conductor. We stopped twice on the way which was very useful for use of toilets. I arrived at Phuket bus station early to try to get the front seat on the bus. I was told I could only sit in row 2 . Then as soon as we set off a woman boarded the bus at next stop (still in terminal 2) and she sat in the front seat. This was very annoying as I was not allowed to sit there. What could be the reason to refuse me the front seat then 5 minutes after departure allow another young woman to occupy it? Otherwise journey was very good and comfortable. Thank you
★★★★★ Dec 28, 2017 (charter Comfort, Phuket Transfer Travel Andaman) :
Very well organised, safe and sensible driving. Great value for a private transfer.
★★★★☆ Dec 28, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★★ Dec 15, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good coach with Good service, Thanks!
★★☆☆☆ Dec 8, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Departure was postponed a half hour but that was ok. Trip took over 6 hours instead of four. Our tickets destination was the bus terminal but we never went there. driver didnt announce any stops after khao sok. Instead the bus stops about 5km past the terminal and orders everbody off onto a street corner. It's dark, we missed our hotel pickup and had to taxi a half hour to our hotel.
★★★★★ Dec 3, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
All fine.
★★★★☆ Nov 18, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus was old and there were too many stops, I feel.
★★★★☆ Nov 1, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The entire trip was like a well-oiled machine and we had zero complaints until the very end. We started at Phuket Town Bus Terminal 2 and heading to the SuratThani ‘old town’ bus station. The only problem was at the very end of our bus trip traveling from Phuket Town to Surat Thani...we were dropped off the side of the road instead of the bus station, even though the bus station was only like 5 minutes away. Not sure if the driver of the bus was trying to be helpful in getting us to our accommodations at BUN Hotel, but we would have preferred to be able to reach our destination at the SuratThani Bus Terminal as planned and then find a tuk tuk, uber, or any other form of transportation at the bus station. As two young traveling white Americans, this wasn’t something I’ve ever been accustomed to dealing with before and was rather alarmed for our safety. We were forced into a tuk tuk that would apparently take us to our hotel seemingly orchestrated by our Phantip bus driver prior to arriving on a random street corner. Initially, being told it would be 680thb per person to take us to our hotel less than 3.5miles away or 13min drive time...we finally were able to settle on 600thb total including 2 people with no stops. The driver made two stops and drove us almost in a complete circle (I was following his driving pattern on Google Maps the entire time) taking 45min to get to our hotel. As this is our first time traveling to this location and using this bus company. I was initially blown away by everything...but now...I’m quite upset about how we were treated at the very end. Made things more complicated than they should have ever been...not to mention the pretty sketchy behavior. The driver wasted our time, money, and we felt like our safety was at risk.
★★★★☆ Oct 15, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
A very good trip, excellent driver, close to schedule, interesting stop, very reasonable price. Ok bus EXCEPT couldn't stop air conditioning from blowing very cold air straight at me.
★★☆☆☆ Sep 20, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
It wasn't a very nice but like the one we took to Railay. It was also really loud all night and I was not able to get any sleep.
★★★☆☆ Aug 25, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good. Basic. Didn't say Surat Thani on the bus, so we had a bit of trouble figuring out which bus it was. (Said Koh Samui)
★★★★☆ Aug 19, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
كان الباص افضل من المرة الماضية ولكن التكيف كان ضعيف عموما شكرا لكم
★★★★☆ Aug 11, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Jul 4, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
There's no need to buy the ticket online, because you will find a lots of buses companies at the Phuket bus terminal 2...the departure was on time but we struggled to get along with the driver; they don't even know and doesn't announce the stops, which is pretty annoying since you have to get off at surattani...by the way the station in surattani looks horrible...not a normal bus terminal. The way and the journey is quite long..it took two hours more in addition from the scheduled time on arrival at surattani...so don't take this bus if you have your schedule well defined, because you'll be late.
★★★★★ Jun 4, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good driver and the trip was wonderful. Made sure that I got off at my stop.
★★★★★ May 10, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Apr 28, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Wonderful little restaurant at Suratthani Train station
★★☆☆☆ Apr 6, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus was very old and it was a bumpy ride. The trip took too long. I am sure one can get there faster.
★★★☆☆ Mar 18, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Ticketing was easy and efficient, good bus terminal with lots of snacks. Bus was old, small seats, broken vents and cup holders, loud and jumpy but cheap and we made it. A/c sucked, we were sweating the whole time. Many quick stops and 1 longer one to stretch, departed right on time but arrived about half hour late. Appreciated the direct drop off right at train station. Nobody spoke English but we all managed. Overall decent for the price.
★★★★☆ Mar 15, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus was neat and clean.Rchd destination 15 prior scheduled time.
★★★☆☆ Mar 13, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ Mar 7, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Departed and arrived pretty much on time, nice scenery along the way. No restroom on board, frequent stops.
★★★★☆ Mar 5, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Great ride. Bus was older but the ride was ok. It was great to see the beautiful mountains and the plantations of Pineapple and other fruit. Good way to see the country.
★★★☆☆ Mar 2, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★★☆ Feb 23, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
funny trip
★★★★★ Feb 17, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus was on time in departure and arrival. Clean and tidy inside. Drop off at Surat Thani is a short walk from train station.
★★★★★ Feb 15, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus is not in great condition at first sight, but the trip was okay. It's not crowded, air condition works perfectly, the driver is very helpful... Also, there are some guys getting onto the bus a few times on the stopa and selling fruit and stuff.
★★★★★ Feb 10, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus left on time, and amazingly arrived at Surat Thani station right on scheduled time. The bus was comfortable, and surprisingly included a restroom. I had scheduled a later train connection because of fear that the bus might be delayed, but I was too conservative in that decision, meaning I had to wait for the train longer than necessary. No complaints at all. Purchasing the ticket was simple and quick, and there was no issue with its electronic delivery to me.
★★★☆☆ Feb 5, 2017 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Like all drivers in Thailand, the bus driver adopts "race driver" attitude by following the racing line while navigating through the crowded streets. I closed my eyes and try not to pay attention at the road. The bus itself is a bit run down with a strong diesel smell in the cabin early in the trip. Also, despite of the written destination (Suratthani Train Station), i was dropped about 15 minute-walk away from the train station, so the description is a bit misleading. Apart from that, the ticket was available readily at Phuket Bus Terminal and everything went smoothly.
★★★★★ Dec 18, 2016 (charter Van 9pax, PGS) :
Driver come on time and deliver us smoothly over
★★★★☆ Nov 24, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Nice trip, nothing to complain about except too many local stops.
★★★☆☆ Nov 21, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Bus too small for the number of people,i thought that takin a private company bus i'd have an assigned seat but it wasn't so.btw the staff was kind and helpful and the trip was ok,tiny but ok.
★★★☆☆ Oct 8, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Reasonable. The cabin was reasonably clean. Do not bother with the breakfast. Coffee was undrinkable and the sandwiches were disgusting.
★★★★☆ Aug 22, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
No complaints!
★★★★☆ Aug 19, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Smooth ride, helpful staff. Would like WiFi on board though. Very inexpensive trip!
★★★☆☆ Jun 1, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus was on time and got to Suratthani station one hour ahead of schedule. This is because it didn't make the two pit stops as advertised. I had to actually tell the driver to stop the bus to let me go to the toilet. This is unacceptable for a four and a half hour bus journey.
★★★☆☆ May 18, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Way better than going other way - driver not drugged up. The use of outdated uncomfortable busses pisses me off.

Thank you for your rating and review, truly appreciated We are glad that for this route you were generally ( if we should say) satisfied with the transport service.

We are looking forward to serve you once again in your future trips!

★★★★☆ Apr 14, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Very pleasant journey. Just about comfy enough and the scenery is fantastic! The guy even helped me get a taxi on to my accommodation which was useful The stop half way was good and had toilets as well as a little shop and food etc
★★★★★ Mar 30, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Good service. The bus ticket is cheaper at the station. Online booking is good if you want to ensure you have a seat.
★★★★★ Feb 28, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Able to load luggage as soon as arrived at platform. Bus left on time, had a 15 min break half way through trip. Bus arrived at Train Station on time. Enjoyable trip
★★☆☆☆ Feb 23, 2016 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Random stops to pick up or drop off other travelers. Sometimes there would be two or three to drop off one person EXACTLY where they wanted to be dropped of. Bus was 50 minutes late. Driving was inconsistent (speed wise). We took a detour to pick up more people. Not sure if it was planned or not. We should have read the former reviews. Not a big deal if you're not overly concerned about +1 hour or so. We missed a train by about 2 minutes because of that though. And I mean 5 hours for what should be a 2 and a half hour drive is frustrating (they quote 4 hours)
★★★☆☆ Dec 26, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
Aircon hardly worked but it was great to see the landscapes
★★★★☆ Nov 21, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970)
★★★☆☆ Jul 21, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
The bus trip from Phuket to suratthani was quite enjoyable but the air conditioner really struggled which meant it was a very sweaty 4 and a half hour trip. Also it would have been very helpful if I'd known there would be a stop for food and toilet. I had to leap out of bus at a 2 minute stop and use a very nasty toilet. Very cheap trip. 230baht
★★☆☆☆ Jan 6, 2015 (bus Standard AC, Phantip 1970) :
i booked by online for 2 person, total 510 baht. the actual ticket on locket is 195 baht per person :( the lady on ticket box give us the online printed ticket. i gave it to bus driver but he did not understand. i think Phantip bus not usual for online booking? because of that we need to met the ticket box lady eith the driver to help us to explain to driver. the bus was old, but depart ontime. suprisingly, on the way, the bus had many stop and pick up some people that make the bus become full, many passanger standing in the bus, make it very unconvenience. but i dont know this is normal or not.. thats all,,

Hello Andreas, the price difference comes from online-payment and booking fees. The problems you faced with the driver may have been caused by language barrier. It is common indeed that bus drivers collect additional passengers on the way, but we apologize for the experience that the bus was overbooked. The operator explained to us that this was because of the long holiday, where by law the operator is forced to pick up passengers on the public lines.
