The guys that assisting with luggage they need customer service and people that are stocking at Johannesburg they bring lots of luggage and in so much that we had to go inside the coach with our luggage
The managers on the various stops were shouting at the driving loudly in front of the customers. I do not know for the love of Christ why this bus prefers stopping at that weird place with dirty toilets. That don't even flush, why not Bloemfontein? Or find any other stop that is hygiene, even a forest would rather do. The driver of this bus had the temperatures so low. I was freezing all the way from Jhb to GQ.
Am completely dissatisfied
with the service from the bus company, first the bus was supposed to depart at 16:30 but only to leave at 20:00 with no proper communication from management. The same bus gets a breakdown 3hours the following day before arrival adding more delays, the company could have done better to improve in this regard!
