Dané E.6 February 2020 | 

Dané was the only child on the bus. The driver and baggage handler were rude, unfriendly and insensitive. They were 45minutes early in Bellville and while she was still busy searching for her baggage ticket, they just drove off. On the 12hour route she did not leave the bus once, because she was worried that they will leave without her. Language (communication) was a problem even in English.

I've always known intercape as one of the best, but now am disappointed very much to an extent of stopping to use it for good i had a return trip n it was also a disaster the stuff was mean and the aircon was too high we were freezing we had to keep asking for it to be turned off or reduced.

I don't know what happened. They put me on the wrong going in the same direction. And even though they tried to correct the situation at first, they gave up and just tried to fill up the space.

The aircon was not working properly and the heat was unbearable.

The guy who assisted me at the Tourist Centre office was very inconsiderate and had no people skills. I was late because I got there at 6pm but still time of departure was 18:10 he told me bus had already gone I need to catch in Coles burg he saw I was stressing then told me to arrive in time next time bus is on its way. He did not even care to ask why was I late and no apology for the bad joke. Had such a terrible day to be treated like that. For a bus that took off at 18:40 and arrived 50 mins later. The bus driver however were very good.
