Is very comfortable
Please fix electricity inside the bus
Travel was fine but disappointed about wifi as it never connects
The trip was nice and good service
Nothing much to say but it was good
Trip was good. Drivers just need to ensure they do not take such risks on overtaking. IE on blind hills and corners. Wifi was not working and no movie was shown. Had to listen to gospel music the whole trip and to high a volume in a language that I did not understand.
Was a good experience
Extremely good service, looking forward to more trips with Greyhound.
No leg space no seat space just overall bad
There were no toilets h owever when we needed go take a break and go to the bathroom when other passengers boarded we were not allowed to
Very comfortable and safe. Will travel with them anytime
I didn't like the toilet,it ended up smelling inside the whole bus
Excellent, but make sure all the charging port are working
Service was very good, depart on time but have a small breakdown that cause about 45min delay. Rest of the trip very good
Great service from the staff🙂
The fact that we spent more than 3 hours at the weigh bridge is unacceptable for me. We were supposed to arrive in Pretoria at 16:05, inatead we arrived at 22:30, which is unacceptable for me. This really needs to be adressed!
The intercape staff made me stand at the wrong pick-up level and consequently I missed my bus trip. No-one was prepared to help me renew my ticket. I lost R1200. I earn R2800 per month. This killed me. I missed my mother's funeral in Pretoria and I am heartbroken.
will use your service again thanks
Will definitely make use of Intercape again.
The trip was pleasant,was just not pleased with waiting and arriving an hour late
Besides it being a very long trip from Cape Town to Pretoria, I really enjoyed the bus trip. I felt safe with the drivers behind the wheel. The drivers were friendly and helpful especially with the loading and unloading of the luggage. I felt like part of the family from the moment I arrived at Cape Town station till reaching my destination at Pretoria station. The bathroom was a bit of a mess and I had to clean up the toilet before I could make use of it after a heavily intoxicated passenger urinated all over the toilet and the floor and left the toilet unflushed. I do understand that it is each passenger's responsibility to clean up after themselves. I was also very impressed with the usb ports installed in the bus which made contact with family and friends so much easier. Job well done. Will be making use of Intercape on my next road trip.
Thnx bus driver 912
The busdriver does not tell the passengers when to get off for 15 minutes to rest, etc. Furthermore, the toilet on the bus can only be used for urinating.
Before we took this long trip with my Wife we were a bit sceptical. How were we going to handle the lengt of the trip and how my long legs can cope with the legroom. We travelled 21 hours with a great and reliable speed where safety first. I have never slept on any liner before even in Europe and here Miracle happened. I have even dreamt 3 times on board. Overall we had a great time as our first bus trip together.
Very good. Driver, Vusi, friendly and good.
