Passenger reviews out of total 140 passengers who 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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Was ok unfortunately because I booke my tickets on line I wasn’t aware that my 3 year old was free and that my kids were cheaper . They said I would get reimbursed at train station but I did not . Next time I will Bybtickets from train station . Also train station to Surat Thani is not in Surat Thani but in Phun Phin. Something to check before booking a hotel. I had not . Train was please but bathroom gross but that’s normal

Safe transfer. Just allow more time for your journey. The website said it would arrive 4 hours after departure. We arrived after a 6 hour journey, so our hotel pick up had been and gone.

I gather people are grouped to location. Therefore don't be in a rush. You might need to wait for others collectively to fill up minivan. Showed driver address, 1st drop off for Koh Lanta - we had to backtrack and pay driver? Purchased ticket Go Asia. Not an amazing service but we got there.
