    Everytime I would visit the city I appreciate ending up at Terminal 1. It's information are on point and easy to get directions around. For those traveling from Phuket to Khao Lak a time table is shown and also for other places. The plus point here is the Airport bus that goes there every hour as well as when it will go back to the terminal. Near in the area are cheap hotels already which is just near to the Old Town.

    Easy inexpensive way to get from airport to the area your staying. Cost is 100 baht from airport. I stayed in Karon. Cost of taxi to Karon is 800 baht. You may be able to negotiate cheaper through bolt or in-Driver. Taxi takes about 1 hour. Bus around 1:30. Bus has air conditioning, although it’s not great. I recommend paying attention to where the bus is in relation to where you are going. I have seen the drivers take passengers well past the drop off point because while the passenger told the driver there stop when they got on, an hour later the driver did not remember, and the passenger had no idea where they were. An honest mistake, but annoying if you are the passenger. Know where your accommodation is in relation to the drop off point, and factor that in. My hotel was a 15 minute walk from the bus stop, mostly uphill, and not on roller friendly Streets. First time I made the mistake of walking it. Second time I took a cab from the drop off point. Cab is much more expensive in Phuket then some other areas, but still only 200 baht, for a total cost of 300 baht, and a 500 baht savings. I did not attempt the return trip to the airport. In summary, if cost is you’re number one priority, this is a reasonable option. If You prefer a more comfortable, hassle free, let me know when we’re there experience, opt for a cab service. See my other reviews for a cab recommendation.

    I booked transfer tickets online on phuketferry.com. easy website to use and arrange transfers from phuket airport to ferry to phi phi and the return to rassada pier, then transfer to patong. everything was pre arranged online and all drivers were there waiting for me each time. very seamless, easy and inexpensive options on the website. The facility is ok. there is food and drinks available, and restrooms. The crews help with baggage. Tips are appreciated I am sure.

    Took the ferry from Koh Samui to Koh Tao and back. The ferry itself was quick and relatively comfortable and very affordable. Wouldn’t be difficult to make the toilets a bit more usable, though. What made the whole experience terrible, was the boarding at Koh Tao. Far from enough space to accommodate the amount of passengers, many ferries coming and going at the same time and very poor instructions as to who should wait where. Ended up standing in direct sun for 45 minutes as there was no other place to be with the luggage. Happy that my children found a place with shadow. Staff couldn’t care less about passengers comfort at the pier.

    We booked a trip from Koh Ngai to Koh Lanta. First thing was that the speedboat was 30 minutes early - we were lucky that we arrived on point at the pier.
    The ride itself was very unorganized, backpacks were thrown around, no lifewest for all passengers & the life vest were storn under the seats - in case of an emergengy no chance to get them. Staff was trying to refill fuel while the speedboat was driving with full power. Best thing was that the boatsmen advised one of the boats boys to drive the speedboat while he went out to smoke, he changed the seats everytime just before we arrived at the stopps to Koh Lanta. Thus I assume that the speedboat was controlled meantime by somebody without an official licens. At the end, the fuel was empty just a few meters before the final stopp at Koh Lanta, after a while the boatsmen somehow fund a few drops of fuel to get us the pier. Nobody spoke one word english, staff was careless and rude.
    I would never use this company again if somehow possible.

    Available, helpful and vehicles rentals in perfect condition. Renting vehicles with insurance which is essential in Phuket to avoid hassles and at prices identical to other rental agencies. A special thanks to Michel and Yann for their professionalism and availability. Do not hesitate, it's the address to know in Phuket to rent motorcycles or cars. I will rent again my car at Nina's car during my next trip in Phuket.

    Good experience with our Phuket airport transfers both ways. Driver was on-time, friendly, and helpful with our luggage. The vehicle was modern, clean and spacious, and journey was made safely. Price was competitive with others. Communications with Ms Min was top notch and efficient. Would recommend using their services.

    Mr Poo was highly responsive and having very good local knowledge. Extremely good experience. Very good service. Taxis are in very good condition and very punctual. Best competitive rates provided. I used it for local usage for multiple days on my trip. Even late night service was given with so much of reliability. Seamless communication with no follow ups required. Highly recommended for any travellers in Phuket.
    Thanks for pleasure experience for my family and friends!!

    When you’re thousands of miles away, it’s hard to find an airport transfer that you can trust. Look no further with Mr. Boy. Once you email him for the date and time, he will email you back to confirm. He will also communicate with you by WhatsApp and answer any of your questions in a timely manner. You don’t have to pay any money upfront to make the reservation. I completely trust that Mr Boy as he showed up to pick our family of six up at the airport. He was waiting for our family as we got out of custom. His rate is very reasonable and much less than what the hotel was quoting. Trust and reliability are two most important characteristics I look for in an airport transfer. You’re tired after a long flight and the last thing you have to be stressed out about is not having a ride to the hotel.

    In addition, Mr Boy also offers very competitive tours to James Bond Island, Phi Phi Island, and a City Tour. He will text you some brochures, but he can get it a lot cheaper than the listed price. His family owns a travel agency so you can book with Mr Boy. We booked all three tours with him.

    One of his drivers, Josh, took us on the city tour of Phuket. He wasn’t a tour guide, but just a driver who took us wherever we want to go. We saw all the popular attractions. If we wanted to buy fruits, he took us to a fruit stand. We wanted to go to a mall and he took us there. And when we’re done, he would pick us up within minutes. He even waited around until we finish our dinner or show to drive us back to our hotel. The service Josh provided was excellent.

    Overall, I highly recommend this company. If I ever come back to Phuket, I will definitely use this company. Mr Boy is the best!

I used it for airport transfers and local usage for nearly all days for my trip. Even early morning service was given with so much of reliability. Seamless communication with no follow ups required. Highly recommended for any travellers in Phuket.

    Sak was absolutely amazing! He was so helpful when booking tours. He planned our whole honeymoon and made sure we saw the best things.
    Kind, warm and lovely human being. He even gave us fresh coconut from his back garden.
    We have regarded Sak to our friends and family
