Hi,we are going to stay at the Flower Garden Hotel again in February.Only 5 weeks now! We are having a transfer with Sassi ,from the Flower Garden.I am sure if you contact him he will arrange this for you.He uses his own vehicle and his driver is very reliable.If it is of any help I think we are to pay $65 each way.More expensive than the train and the ordinary taxis but very reliable and that is a good thing nowadays.
We went to the elephant orphanage and Yala so we have first hand experience.This was arranged by Sassi for us. Again using his own vehicle and his own driver.Using his own driver gave us the advantage of going to places off the beaten track as well.For insance we were on the road one day and the driver drew up by a bridge .Why we didn`t know until he took us down the the river bank under neath and showed us some enormous lizards.They were atleast three foot long.!!!!!!!!!! We had a wonderful time with his driver and look forward to seeing him again.
I would suggest that you do your homework about places you want to go to and when you get to "heaven" ask Sassi .He is excellent.
Have a lovely time
