So many unnecessary stops. It took six hours longer the journey!

Jennifer R.28 March 2018 | Staff: 2 | 

I am going to directly complain to the company as an hour into our journey the bus broke down. We waited 2 hours by the side of the road for a replacement bus which was to a much lower standard than the one we had paid for. Then spent a further 31 hours 20 minutes on this appalling bus. Despite only being delayed by 2 hours, our bus arrived in Salvador 7 hours after schedule.
