Passenger reviews out of total 231 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.

Good trip. Roads a little rough as expected. Driver safe and steady.

Good bus and good ride. Howewer this company should not be allowed to state a 3h duration online (totally unrealistic for this journey) as it takes 4.5h (which is absolutely fine), especially as they advertise it differently in their shop... 12.go should also monitor unrealistic timings advertised on its portal...

Terrible roads. It took 5 hours, not the 3 hours 'advertised'. Bus was full (some paying passengers were turned away). Seats are hard but the bus is not old and the driver was good (not too fast etc).

Super friendly van driver collected us on time from our hotel. We were on time, actually way before we had to wait 1.5h for the train. But it’s better to be early than late.

Pickup was on time, enough space in the minivan. However, once we arived at the train station we had to wait for over an hour on the train to cross the lao-thai border. Arrival time on the thai side was 17.45 not 16.40 as advertized. While immigration was slow it still gave me enough time to catch my onward train to bangkok at 19.10.

Sehr freundliches und zuverlässlichrs Service. Der Fahrer sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und überpünktlich! Lediglich der VAN entspricht nicht den heutigen Standart.
