Over all good

Jorge M.June 24, 2019 | 

All ok, just one remark: I arrived in London one day earlier than I was planning, I had to pay £30 to change the trip to a day earlier, I consider this amount way too excessive, This is make me think that next time I would rather leave it to when I arrive and buy tickets at the National Express central
