Christina P.March 9, 2020 | 

This was one of the worst bus experiences I’ve ever had. The bus was not as advertised. The WiFi didn’t work for over half the trip, the tray table was broken, the tv didn’t work, the seats were not even close to spacious. I am 5’4” and my knees touched the chair in front of me. People were literally yelling on the bus for hours and no effort was made to stop them.

Really satisfied

Morten Glarfeldt C.November 7, 2019 | 

Decent bus service but nothing special. Not great for night busses as it is just regular tourist coaches. Wifi didn’t work and aircon was so and so. Got a little humid and smelly.

Shirley B.September 15, 2019 | 

Excellent service.

Mary A.September 7, 2019 |

Martin S.September 7, 2019 | 

Internetscreen and Powersuply did not work for me and also not on many other units.

Alan J.September 5, 2019 | 

Our seats were in a row of 5 and were above the engine. It was therefore extremely hot. The middle seat didnot have a screen or bag to put belongings. It should be clear where your seat is going to be and a choice given. Otherwise OK.

Kerem Yaakov B.August 30, 2019 | 

The seats are very uncomfortable. I sat at the back and there was no room to move.

Agbo E.August 21, 2019 | 

It is ok

Tracy M.August 16, 2019 | 

The bus got a flat tire on the way. The driver continued to drive on the flat tire until the metal rims were grinding on the cement and smoke was visible. The driver was very unprepared for that kind of thing. We waited roughly thirty minutes for help to arrive while the driver tried to warn the oncoming traffic that there was a broken-down bus in the right hand lane just around a curve. Then it took the experts nearly two hours to get the tires off and put the new ones on. No apology was given for the inconvenience.

Ursula A.August 10, 2019 | 

Worst bus ever. I cant even charge my phone. Lol. 2/10

Linda K.August 3, 2019 | 

The busdriver was driving way to fast, we arrived one hour earlier than informed to Malaga. The air condition in the bus was also very poor and the bus was very hot and that resulted in many sweaty people and a very smelly, hot and sweaty bus. Would not reccommend.

Byung Jin S.July 25, 2019 | 

Overall ok comparing to the fare. However the seat we sat was terrible;broken seatbelt and chair back, no cushion at all. For 7 hour long trip those things are necessary to make it work. But the driver treat us showing flexibility and kindness in this situation. He let us sit other seats available. That helped we feel better.

Pedro M.July 22, 2019 | 

We didn’t like the many stops, but it was the only one left. Would have taken direct bus

Waddah A.July 7, 2019 | 

Excellent, efficient and clean

Alyse K.June 26, 2019 | 

Comfortable with aircon and entertainment

Maria M.June 22, 2019 | 

Bus was comfortable and the bus trip did not detract from the beautiful scenery.

Anne K.June 16, 2019 | 

The second driver who took over sfter our stop was constantly on his mobile phone texting. This is a driving offence and absolutely unacceptable.

Timothy U.June 4, 2019 | 

Great value and punctual

Okonkwo E.May 7, 2019 | 

Charging appliance is not working, and the toilet is uncomfortable

Wah Hsin Y.May 2, 2019 | 

Last row is super narrow and even sold a seat in the middle! It's really dangerous. And the driver stopped on the midway over half a hour(so arrived lately I guess) and kept customers await in the heating weather.

Birgit S.April 18, 2019 | 

The 3 breaks were too long

Chris L.April 12, 2019 | 

Great trip, no complaints. Thanks

Mihail K.April 11, 2019 | 

The bus was comfortable, however the driver was late and rude. The second driver was horning a lot to the cars.
