For someone that suffers travel sickness, no lie but this was the best bus journey ever! A very simple experience from booking online, collecting the tickets and hopping onto the bus for 6 hours. The chairs reclined quite a bit (if only airlines could do the same!) and your legs go forward/up. Water and peanuts are provided. Blankets are also provided when it gets late. We stopped just over half way for a 30 minute food/toilet break. It really didn’t feel like a 6 hour journey.

Very friendly staff on bus, provided us with water and a blanket. Good organization: the staff got our luggage already off even before we were off the bus. Would recommend!
