The bus had no toilets which is very bad for elderly people. And no TV for intertainment. This was the most awkward ride with no space for movement of your legs.

The seat should be able to lean down a little bit more. Very difficult to sleep for long trip

Dragan B.27 November 2018 | 

The trip was long, but staff (drivers) made several stops for refreshments. They are very good drivers and I enjoyed the ride.
