Baguio to Manila Destination Reviews

Honestly, it would have been an excellent trip but the driver and the bus attendant were very noisy. They keep on chatting with loud voices and playing loud music the whole trip. Some people would actually need peace and quiet while travelling a long distance and would like to rest. Maybe they are not just conscious of the noise they make. Otherwise, I appreciate the bus leaving on time and reaching the destination at an earlier-than-expected time.

The bus was very comfortable but why are the seats covered with plastic? Great that the bus was ahead of time! WiFi was stable and fast. That's what I want. But in days of Netflix I don't know why they play these movies? Almost noone was watching, but everyone was sonicated by the sound of shooting, crying and fighting, 5 hours along, incredible.

The busride was ok but the confirmation came very late (it took more than 36h...) We also didnt know that we have to print the ticket. There was only a very small notice on the pdf-ticket but not in the email. This was quiet tendious. Once you booked the tickets all the informations about the busstop and start-time is gone till you get the confirmation (which takes to long to get it!)

Great, but the adverts promised lazy-boy type seats and snacks and water. We got nothing going to Baguio and only got snacks but not water coming back to Patañaque. The driver and bus attendant had been great though. Buses left on time.
