They did not stop for us to eat. They were not pleasant at all. Didn't even inform us that they won't be stopping. They stopped for themselves.

Sosana H.16 August 2018 | 

Good service and staff.👌🏾👌🏾

Faisal K.18 March 2018 | 

They’re providing a satisfactory service. There’s less communication of the staff with passengers regarding stopovers so many a times passengers sit clues wondering why has the bus stopped. Also cleanliness needs extra attention.

Thobekile T.6 March 2018 | 

very comfortable an on time

Paula W.20 January 2018 | 

Very uncomfortable stops..
