Overall I was not satisfied with the service of the company. I paid to be on the lower deck of the bus for a comfortable ride however I feel this wasn’t comfortable and will not be paying the extra money for this in the future. The reason being is.. the chairs are uncomfortable, no pillows, the air conditioning was super cold at night (no blankets provided) we asked staff to increase the temperature but he said he was unable to do so. The USB sockets are unreliable.

Very annoyed as we were supposed to arrive at 3:10am but did not arrive till 10am. As a result i missed an important family get together. I would like to be reimbursed for this false advertising

It was freezing the whole night I couldn't sleep. I know it's always cold but the display showed 15C° and when I asked the staff to change it they told me it was 19C° in their department where the driver is so they just refused! Besides that there was no wifi and they advertise on the outside of the bus they have free wifi..
