The trip was fine. Autobus was comfortable and the stuff give something to drink during my trip and a blanket and pillow. The only thing that was bad was the air conditioner that was to hight and I was literally freezing during all the way!! I asked for put it low but they answer me that was not possible and give me another blanket. All connection were good and well organized.

Bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour (กรุงสยามทัวร์), Dec 8, 2021
It was great until the bus broke down half way through the journey. The bus broke down at midnight and we had to change buses. Luckily, there was another bus waiting so we didn't have to wait long, but me and my partner had to sit separately due to the bus being full already, the seats were not as comfortable, and we didn't get the meal that was supposed to come with our ticket. I understand these things happen but it was a bit of a disappointment.

Bus VIP 24, Krungsiam Tour (กรุงสยามทัวร์), Oct 30, 2021
The bus seats were Fantastic for sleeping but I got left at 5 am in a sleepy kind of spot for 4 hours. That was not good. Loved the insurance. Boat took 2 hours so arrival was after 13.00. Everyone was very helpful with my heavy luggage.

I purchased connection trip from BKK to Samui, however bus from Surat Thani train station to Pier have cancelled. They have refunded the bus fees however I think it’s more fair to refund part of service fees as well. By the way, the staff is helpful and nice!
