Well organised, clear instructions when changing between modes of transport. Helpful, efficient and mostly very friendly staff( staff who were not as friendly were still very helpful, not rude, and busy hearding a LOT of us clueless tourists). Train was late coming in from Bangkok, so the coach to the catamaran was delayed half an hour to accommodate this. Very pleased, would recommend.

Perfectly on schedule and well organiced. The only flaw; if its raining they should find a place inside for babies and little kids... I saw many very scared left outside under the rain!

The boat trip feels like mass transportation... The best thing to do...go to 1e deck and take the VIP seat. It will cost you 100 baht... But it's quiet and relax

Pleasant trip, however, sharing more trip info upfront would be appreciate. We travel from Surat Thani to Koh Tao. Only at departure port we learned that a boat change at Koh Phe Ngan was needed and we had to wait for an hour. Not an issue, but knowing this upfront would have been appreciated

Catamarans are okay, friendliness may improve. The way they treat bagage is unbelievable, they broke one of our suitcases, but they really don't care.

Everything went on time, however it took forever to get to Koh Tao because of the stops at Koh Samui and Koh Pha-ngan.

Organisation parfaite, et à l'heure avec Lomprayah. Tout confort, (climatisation, prise en charge en bus et l'organisation au port) Il faisait très chaud, du coup les attentes semblaient plus longues.

Quick, easy. Exactly what it said on the tin. Ferry had some issues just off Ko Tao and staff very quickly got us picked up by another boat within 10 mins. Pretty decent facilities along the way.

Autobús de traslado desde el aeropuerto hasta el ferry demasiado viejo. Trámites en la estación Maritima lentos y bajo el sol abrasador de Tailandia. Poco ágil.

The ticket told me where I should take the bus and where I was going, but for the rest the ticket didn't told me anything (when I say ticket I mean 12goAsia) the staff was very friendly with me.
