I am so happy that i decided to travel by bus and ferry with hotel transfer rather than by plane. It was super comfortable travel every thing was like it should be. They picked up us from the hotel at 7:15 from Patong in minivan and then we have moved to a big comfortable bus untill the Pier close to Surat Thani where they gave us the ferry and koh samui transfer tickets. In koh samui drivers from the company were waiting for us and transfer us to our hotel. Highly recommend!

Overall experience was very good. The bus left on time and we reached our destination on time as well. Giving 4 stars as the air conditioning was turned off after the lunch break.
