I’m very disappointed. The driver told us to pay him 1350 baht for our tickets for the ferry. I showed him the voucher states we only need to pay 200baht each for my family of 5. I gave him 1000baht but then had to buy ferry tickets for 700baht directly from the ticket terminal. How do I get my money back from your company?!

All in all a quite comfortabel Trip, pick up and arival within the estimated time range. The only thing missing have been some and clear and understandable instructions about which Bus to take from Phuket town and where to get off the bus. It has been stopping two times already before reaching the ferry to Koh Samui. Some people were leaving the Bus already during that stops while there had been no announcements or advices at all which passengers should leave the bus. So many passengers were confused ...

Из отеля забрали вовремя, а мы еще рассчитывали успеть позавтракать - не успели. Дальше пересадили в автобус -> паром, и с парома сразу домчали до отеля на Самуи. Раньше, чем по расписанию. Все четко.

Meeting at the busstation at least an hour before departure ended up in waiting in an hour for departure. 30 minutters before would be more than sufficient. Poor information and confusion of confirming the Ferry tickets caused problems and anger at the pier before departure.
