5 stars even though during our first pick up was a bit miscommunicated with the driver and the local operator. Our voucher’s statement clearly stated about the pick up time. I called and texted the driver and explained and told me and showed me the text that they sent to them about the pick up time and that was 10:30PM. Our pick up time supposed to be by 5AM that was showed on oir voucher and the time I choose to be pick. We’re waited for almost 3.5 hours. I think this is only a miss communications between them and not by the 12go. Both drivers(from 2 trips the second trip was on time) from these base from my experiences is very recommendable, they are so courteous. I still really appreciate their services. I until the next visit still using 12go.

The experience from Victory Liner Baguio is one of a kind - all the staff is kind and well-equipped to handle customers. It was really a breeze dealing with everyone there. What really irked me is the guard in Victory Liner Cubao - they are all rude and is shouting at customers. I just moved to the side and put my bag in one of the chairs near the guard, and he screamed at me to remove my bag and kept looking at me with hateful eyes. Me being tired, I looked at him with the same hatred because I did not deserve that and I was asking him nicely. It tarnished my almost perfect experience with Victory Liner.
