Intercape Budgetliner Johannesburg Mthatha recent customer reviews
Bus took 18hours instead of 13hours as per booking ,bus didn’t have a bathroom ,just not adjustable no charging ports ,very long and uncomfortable trip ,completely dissapointed after paying so much for the trip
I enjoyed that they could control the temperature to be just right in the bus, I didn’t enjoy the fact that it had 3seats together. For long distance seating in a 3seat bus was very uncomfortable and we were squeezing one another. For a WHOLE 14hrs
I enjoyed every step of the way. Very comfortable bus, everything a person needs is there
