Ranong to Phuket Destination Reviews

everything worked out fine and in time.
Bus Express, Rung Kit (รุ่งกิจทัวร์), Feb 14, 2020
Absolutely brilliant. Our driver spoke enough English to be able to check that we were happy with everything and made regular stops to buy us bananas, pineapple and cold water. Not the cheapest way to travel, but worth every penny

Travel with the operator was a breeze. Thoughtful and on time.

Okay experience. Bus was quite old, seats were a little cramp, but it got us to our destination in good time.

Bus was unsafe , no suspension. We we told we could get off at soi jw marriott . The driver refused to stop . We had to pay 800 baht to get back to where we should have been dropped off. Stopped plenty of times for thai people. Unhelpful and unfriendly.

Perfect service. I'd choose it again!

It’s a long trip. The back of the bus is not air conditioned, you’ll stick to your chair with sweat in 39 minutes or so. WiFi also isn’t there. The bus is bumpy, and if someone decides to use that restroom the whole bus can smell it. But- the price can’t be beat. If you want to save money and have extra time, just psyche yourself up for it.

Bus left on time, stopped along the way, rather cold with the a/c on full blast, arrived a little after projected time.
Bus Express, Rung Kit (รุ่งกิจทัวร์), Dec 5, 2018
The bus turned up on time. One star. The staff were efficient enough I suppose. Another star. Thats where it stops. The bus was an antiquated piece of junk with rust starting to come through numerous panels. Inside nothing worked, including our seat belt buckles (neither x 2) and the on-board toiler stank the whole bus out when used. It was supposedly an express service. It sopped constantly to pick up and drop off locals, so it was an hour late. Just a local bus.
