Didn't mind being late. Free water and croissant great and stopped for break. Very nice.

Good SERVICE with breaks every 2 hours. Value for money.

Everything was great, except I got really scared when the van broke and the driver had to drive like 5km/h. He managed to fix it within a few minutes and then a half an hour later when the driver started driving 130km/h or even faster to get us on the destination on time I thought I will pass out out of fear. The van was comfortable, the driver is extremely friendly and I liked him very much.

The lady hostess should be more smily and friendly.The VIVACOM wifi was not in function during the whole trip. We informed the hostess but she did not do anything to resolve the problem.Drivers should be more gentle when changing gear(too bad for gearbox) and change lanes in a more gentle way.
