We could have done with a bit more than 5min stop to get lunch. Very comfortable seats and a great ride. The bus driver was very good and we felt safe in the rain. Remember to take a jumper as the airconditing can get a bit cold.

On time pick up, a little late on arrival but due to a ton of road construction. One of the most comfortable busses I have ever been on.
