It was even faster than last time I booked the similar trip. Everything was perfect! I was picked up just in 5 minutes I took my baggage in the airport, than I was boarded on a ferry immediately after our bus arrived in the port. And it took only 3 minutes before I picked up with a minivan that brought me to the door of my villa. That's not exaggerating! Literally each transfer took a few minutes. Super great service of Phantip and, of course, 12go! Guys, I love you all ❤️

We had quite a good over all experience. The bus was new and comfortable. The service at the airport was friendly. The trip safe and on time. Actually we where supposed to go two hours later, but we where put on the earlier bus, which was fine with us. Just the busdriver was very inpolite and not speaking proper english. There was an intermediate stop, where some of the passengers had to change the bus. He was shouting something in Thai and maybe but not understandable for us in English. So all Farang where getting of the bus a bit confused. We tried to ask but he won't answer. He pulled out the luggage of those people that had to change just throwing it in the dirt. Finally when I asked for my backpack he wanted to see my ticket. As it was for the ongoing ride he chased me back in the bus again. Never experienced such unfriendlyness in Thailand in 25 years.

Great transfer from the airport which was 1.5 hours, I wasnt aware if this so may be worth publicising this more so people are aware. The ferry was a lot quicker than expected too, it said 4 hours but did it in under 2. All good really no complaints at all, great service.

Easy and seamless for booking and execution. My flight arrived on time and I was allowed with no problems to go on the earlier bus and boat instead of having to wait around until the original booked time. A great service.
