I didn't enjoy anything. I booked a tickets for a bus that was supposed to depart at 5:25, the bus didn't arrive until 8.30am where we were squeezed into another bus which was going to different places. We even arrived late where we were going, the bus was dirty and it was something totally different from what was described when I booked the ticket.
The service is bad . They do not communicate with people we were supposed to depart at 23:00 but we left at 02:32. I don’t recommend it to anyone.
