It was a long trip but a smooth ride, bus was a bit old and some things need repairs, but overall. Great an smooth trip.

We had a flat tyre around Larisa... took the drivers 1h30 to change it (unacceptable long for professional drivers) In Lamia they dropped us at the Bus station and they went to a tyre shop to change tyre again (took them 1h30 minutes more)
