The bus was very comfortable. Stuart knows English. We came to Istanbul even earlier :)

Tadelle T.December 23, 2019 | 

About 50 minutes late from the arrival time because of the traffic in istanbul

No one speaks English, not the bus staff, neither the staff in their office. So, it is not a good idea to put a company in here, which doesn't provide anyone who can speak at least basic English. My initial ticket showed the bus was going to depart from the gate 34, then at the office I was told it is 130. There was nothing about this journey on the schedule tablets. Besides, when I approached to the office staff, they gave me the hard-copy of my ticket, but it showed wrong date there. I told them about that, but they didn't do anything. The bus was stinky...

Very satisfied with the service

Anastasia K.September 24, 2019 | 

I really don't know why since the moment we entered Istanbul I checked Google maps to see how far were we, and there was a chance to get in time but the driver took the longest routh he could possibly take, the bus came late for 2 hours. The staff members were nice and polite.

Nikolai S.September 5, 2019 | 

All fine, but the ride took 8h instead of 4.5h, not happy :-(

Godwin E.August 29, 2019 |

It was good and comfortable but the tire punchered

Denys D.July 24, 2019 | 

I had really big problem today - I didn't get on the bus, because it was impossible to find it at Ankara bus station. Nothing was written in the ticket about the place where the bus arrives, nobody on the station knows it either. Also, nobody on the station speaks English. Finally, I missed the bus though I arrived at bus station beforehand.

The bus driver was very rude and unprofessional. We were traveling with a 3yrs old kid and whenever the kid talked, he would make faces and scream. He was also smoking inside the bus while driving.
