Overall I was quite happy with the trip. I had a couple of complaints as below. 1. The entry into your offices in East London very difficult to access with having to take our bags upstairs to be weighed and people sitting on the stairs. Awkward to navigate. 2. I asked for assistance on your WhatsApp and was told to ask the driver. Bad idea when he's driving and no time before boarding. 3. I think it was after our Kokstad stop there was a change in drivers and the speed seemed to increase and I didn't feel quite as comfortable as before.

Their tablet wasn't working, and that delayed us leaving as they couldn't verify properly as who was supposed to be boarding

Generally OK, except driver rode too fast over speed humps, stopped only 10 minutes at 3 stops and switched the main lights on before sunrise. The clock on the bus was 3 hours fast.
