While we did make it safely to our destination, I would recommend using the bus over this option of taking a private car. It was much more expensive, and still took us 5 hours. Our driver didn’t seem to know where he was going and kept pulling over to ask people on the street for directions. He did not use any sort of GPS or map, and this did make us a little concerned. Secondly, he kept asking if we wanted to make additional stops along the way at random temples. While I appreciate the offer, we weren’t comfortable with leaving all of our baggage in the car alone with a stranger. Our driver did not speak any English, so we also didn’t know what these temples were/where we would be stopping. Lastly, the driver at one point midway through the trip pulled over and asked us to put our bags on the front seat. While this may have been for our benefit, it made my friend and I a little concerned over the manner in which he did this (pulling over on the side of the road 2 hours in). I do think he had good intentions; however my friend and I would have been more comfortable on the bus.

We had an extremely positive experience with Jed Yord. The driver was sharply on time (5 am), was very polite and careful on the road, and spoke some English. The only thing which could be improved is communication before the trip. It was a bit confusing to read that the voucher needs to be exchange for the boarding pass when it wasn’t necessary and it wasn’t also clear whether the booking was confirmed or we still had to wait for the confirmation. But the 12go crew was quite quick to answer those questions by email. Before tried to call the hotline, but nobody picked up
