Passenger reviews out of total 3,652 passengers 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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★☆ Dec 13, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :

★★★★★ Nov 23, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :

★★★★★ Nov 18, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery)
★★☆☆☆ Nov 18, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
Bus was late so we missed our boat, delayed 4 hours. No clear communication. We had to change boats at one of the stops with no clear instruction. Old boat.
★★★★★ Nov 4, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Despite the high seas they did their best to take is as far as koh phagnan, and then the next day to koh tao. Can't complain.
★★★☆☆ Oct 27, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
We booked our trip with Seatran. Staff completely unhelpful in Surat Thani Airport and really nice in Sura Thani Pier.
★★★★☆ Oct 27, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
Okay ferry, drinks and snacks are sold. Toilet smells realllly bad. Nice sightseeing if you have to go to Koh Tao as you'll stop in Koh Phagnan and Koh Samui on the way there :D

★★★☆☆ Aug 9, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
No child fare option. Instructions are not clear. It should have more English signs, pictures, instructions for different stickers, ferry, boats and lines.
★★☆☆☆ Aug 7, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
Close to lose the connection with the ferry. Dirty boat, no litters and dirty bathroom
★★★★☆ Aug 4, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
Because my plane arrived early i was able to board an earlier bus and therefore arrived 2,5 hours earlier on koh tao then planned, which was awesome. The seats on the boat were a bit uncomfortable after being on the boat for a couple of hours, but other than that, everything was perfect!
★★★★★ Aug 1, 2017 (ferry Ferry, Songserm) :
Works very good
★★★★★ Jul 24, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :

★★★★★ Jul 12, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Everything just worked perfect. Got a good description of where to go and what to do in the information received together with the confirmation.
★★★★☆ Jul 8, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Good service despite the full boat. Too bad they throw with all the luggage. All in all a good and fast connection.
★★★☆☆ Jul 6, 2017 (ferry Sleeper Ferry, Songserm) :
Nothing special about my experience. It gets you where you need to go. From Surat Thani it took about a 2 hour bus ride and then a 4 hour ferry ride to get to koh Tao. Ferry had to stop by koh Samui and koh phagnan on the way
★★★★☆ Jun 22, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Well organised. However, the description of Lomprayah counter at the airport "located next to Gate 1" could be more specific, as the counter is at the far end of the right side of Gate 1
★★★☆☆ Jun 12, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
Boarding the ferry is a little rushed, there is a small window of maybe 10 mins at 11am on the dot, otherwise the ferry journey was fine

★★★★☆ Feb 27, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
It was pretty much as expected. I would have been more comfortable with more detailed information and instructions, but I just asked as I went and everything went OK. I knew it was Suratthani to Koh Tao and that it was a bus/ferry combination. It is a bus from airport to ferry pier that takes about an hour to hour and a half, then a ferry that makes one stop on the first island and then you get to the second island and have to get off the boat and wait about an hour, then you get on a different boat to go to Koh Tao. The second boat boarded probably 15-30 minutes later than expected so not bad for ferries. We arrived in Koh Tao just before 3pm (this was the bus that leaves at 8:29am and supposed arrival time was 14:15). Still time to get the 3pm boat to Nangyuan, which was parked right next to where the ferry pulled in. (I did not have to give Nangyuan boatman any proof of anything.) I don't get motion sick and waters were calm. No issues there. Some rocking but it is a boat in the ocean. In the airport for the bus, it is on the lower level, downstairs below "departures", where you get the buses and taxis and rent cars. I went to the Lomprayah booth first because that's the only one I recognized and didn't have specific instructions, and she sent me to the bus company booth. I only had the receipt email from 12GoAsia - couldn't find the other and booked it while traveling so didn't have a printed version, and I was still able to get on but having the printed copy would've been less hassle.
★★★☆☆ Feb 19, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Staff not very friendly
★★★★☆ Feb 6, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah)
★★★☆☆ Jan 29, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Two hours e 30 minutes waiting for the boat to go. I lost the free taxi to the hotel. Not so good but it got me here

★★★★☆ Jan 21, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah)
★★★★☆ Jan 18, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Bus ride from the airport was comfortable and on time. Ferry ride was good even though the water was choppy. We brought our own food since reviews said food was expensive. Overall good experience.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 2, 2017 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
The ferry was that fast that 80% of the people was throwing up. Was like a night mare with people sick every where. Seatran company was much better drive and people dindt Puke.

★★★☆☆ Dec 28, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah)
★★★☆☆ Dec 21, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Bus from Train Station to Ferry was very old and leaky. Ghetto. The ferries are nice. We were headed for Koh Tao from Don Sak. We had to switch boats in Koh Phangan. We got off and was given no direction really. Or when our next boat was going to be coming. So we just sat there for an hour hoping they were right. Sure enough a boat came that took us to Koh Tao. All in not bad and gets you to where you need.
★★★★☆ Dec 3, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Plenty of room on Lomprayah's new vessels. It seems they will always travel, no mather wich weather. Yes everybody vommits, but at least you are not stuck in a shit place like Surat Thani
★★★★☆ Oct 13, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
We enjoyed the trip. Snacks and drinks are very very expensive.

Does the job but takes to long. Arrived at 19.15 instead of 18.30.

★★★☆☆ May 23, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah)
★★★☆☆ Mar 21, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Seatran Discovery) :
When we booked they say 50 seats per boat but I think we had 200 people or more. Also thought it would be a direct transfer to Ko Tao but we ended up with Samui and Phagnan as well. Due to delays we waited more than 30 minutes for a lot of other passengers. Since we were 2 hours early it was a long wait. Finally when we reached Koh Phagnan the horde embarked but they say we should change ships also even when we were the last group and only had to go to Koh Tao! So instead of reaching the island at 18:30 PM we finally arrived over 19:30! Since we are used to travel in Thailand we know about Thai time (add always 1 hour to sceduled time) but still it is inconvenient. At least there can be a better communication about what to expect during travel.
★★☆☆☆ Jan 26, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Lomproyah makes u travel in the storm and horrible conditions. no seats people threw up everywhere
★★★★★ Jan 24, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Fantastic, professional, friendly and efficient service. I highly recommend 12GoAsia.
★★★★★ Jan 11, 2016 (ferry High Speed Ferry, Lomprayah) :
Sverything was very easy and relaxed, thank you!!
