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.

Breakfast was a nice touch but the bus was two hours later than expected time of arrival. Our passports were taken off us at the border and the whole process was very easy.

The office was not yet open an hour before departure, but we did depart from Ho Chi Minh on time. They provided snacks, water and wet tissues. The guide was polite and helpful during the trip, particularly in facilitating passports/ visas It was a relatively safe and uneventful ride. The unit may seem old but the service was still good. thank you very much!

Although the bus was a little worn out, most hand handles and bottle holders are broken, it was still relatively clean and comfortable. The bus ride was smooth and okay except when we arrived in the capital where the driver would go bumper to bumper with smaller cars, motorcycles and tuktuk causing excessive sudden breaks. The disappointing and aggravating part was when we were being charged a dollar or 250,000 dong (which is totally not a dollar in real time convertion) by the guide for the arrival and departure card that they "bought" from the police (which we primarily promised we would pay later) when we don't need a visa as an ASEAN resident (Philippine passport holder). Good thing we heard the conversation between a fellow Filipino and the guide that they need a receipt for that card in return for paying the fee which the guide couldn't prepare, they told us it was THE Vietnam-Cambodia border scam which we almost fell for and that you can just ask for the form from an immigration officer for free. I don't know if the other nationalities with visa-on-arrival got also ripped off by an additional fee for visa processing. I will not ride with them just for that reason.

It was nice! Great service! Only the bus could have been a bit more modern - the seats were very hard and it had an ancient air conditioning system, that did not help a lot during the hottest hours of the day. We had a delay of 1 1/2 hours, although there were no traffic jams or problems on our route. I don't quite get that? The pre-ordered tuk-tuk of my hotel waited for me all this time!

Stewart was really good and helpful. Bus is old and dirty. Not comfortable, air con not really functional, it took 8 hours to get to Phnom Penh. My suggestion is that they make a stop at the Phnom Penh city centre before the final stop.Buses are going through there anyway and you don't have to deal with traffic twice

First of all, we left too late. Then we were told that the trip would be 7 hours instead of the 4.5 hours that was informed by the company. If we had known, we would have paid a little extra to ride with someone else in a nicer bus. Speaking of the bus: It was old and the aircon didn’t seem to work. There was stuff placed under the seats so we weren’t able to stretch our legs at all. Further, I think the horn was placed inside the cabin.... it was so loud! We did get some water and snacks for the ride, and that’s of course a plus. The staff was helpful and we paid a small fee for their help at the border. However, all they did was collect passports in a basket and hand them over to the officers at the border crossing... they did let us off a little earlier than planned though, as we drove past our hotel in Phnom Penh, which was very nice. All in all: You get what you pay for. But if you know that the ride will take 7 hours, then write 7 hours! Don’t lie about it.

I went to their office and requested to be put to the 8:30am trip. They were very pleasant. They just checked if there was a seat in the earlier trip and transferred me, no questions asked. The trip itself was a pleasant experience. No hassles.

We took the Express which promised a 4.5 hour trip, but extended to a 7-hour trip. The guide/conductor was very helpful but at a price. We paid him $3 per head (there were 4 of us) thinking that it was for terminal fees. All he did was get our passports and give it to the Immigration Officer while the rest lined up. There was no difference except that the others lined up while we stood waiting. Same difference as we finished almost at the same time. Coming back, we expected the trip to be just as long and we were right. Not the promised express trip. The guide/conductor for this trip performed the same service for us at immigration without charging us anything. Overall, for the price, you get what you pay for. The buses were old, but the drivers drove safely. We were given water and snacks for the trip, and wi-fi was available on board.

Booked a 4.5 hour express bus service, but they tried to put us on a 7 hour minibus. We refused as I have heard they are very dangerous. Ended up on a 7 hour normal coach that left an hour later than our original booking. Be aware that your bus will not leave at the time stated and I don't think an express service actually exists here...

Not a bad trip albeit not a "limousine" experience as they market it. It certainly didn't have the leg room for it. Despite being a steady ride, the bus could have been on the allocated time of 5 hours if it didn't stop for some pointless snack place immediately after border customs. If snacks are provided and we already stopped at the border, then what is the point? It just slowed everything down.

We arrived in Phnom Penh 1,5 hours to late. It was not because of much traffic, it was the actual planned time of the Mekong Express company.
