Useful night bus service from Izmir to Istanbul. Helpful staff and free shuttle service from Izmir centre to the bus station. Bus itself was a little run down, comfortable enough but not as well looked after as some other bus companies we have tried in Turkey. Wasn’t expecting all the noisy night stops which prevented a good nights sleep - eye mask and ear plugs a must for getting your full rest!! Also don’t forget some lira for the WCs at the service stops.
