Rutendo C.December 27, 2019 | 

The staff were friendly and helpfull

Muzikayise D.December 25, 2019 | 

Generally safe and comfortable. But selling wrong arrival time online even though they know they never arrive at destination on time. Distorts travel plans for onward connectivity. This is irresponsible.

Nyaradzo J.December 19, 2019 | 

It was ok , driver was.a.bit rude one.of them. But trip was.ok

Daniel M.December 15, 2019 | 

Drivers were quite rude and some of the delays could have been avoided

Kudzai C.December 14, 2019 | 

The bus incurred 2 breakdowns which resulted in close to 3 hours of down time. Futhermore the way passengers luggage was being handled and packed leaves a lot to be desired. Speedwise and adherence to road regulations was above board.

Edward N.December 10, 2019 | 

It was awesome, just that the delay was due to natural effects which was good for safety. Communication excellent

Bulelwa F.December 3, 2019 | 

the journey was comfortable, just been delayed to get to Harare on ETA

Martin M.November 22, 2019 | 

The bus was 5 hours late, too much delays along the way

Rosaline H N.November 9, 2019 | 

The bus should depart on time, and drivers should communicate to passengers why the bus is going to leave late.

Manyadza K.November 1, 2019 | 

Time is the main issue the bus does not depart or arrive on time
