Very organized. On time. Safe driving. The break in the middle was fantastic to get something eat and drink. Although this wouldn't have been necessary if there had been drinking water in the bus, and we were allowed to eat snacks. The conductor was a little grumpy, and refused to let us eat on the bus or even put our handbags on the floor. Otherwise good trip. We all arrived safe and sound.
What a good safe driver.
Good busses and personnel. Wife could be improved.
Great way to travel inter- city. Comfy bus, reclining seats & entertainment screen. Didn’t notice the time pass.
Nice terminal, very nice bus amenities
There could be a note in English as to the duration of the break
