Unfortunately our booked transportation was cancelled a few hours before due to "operational issues". The Email service luckily booked us on an earlier time we could reach nonetheless. This bus was slightly late and overcrowded then. All possible places we're occupied and in the whole room between seats also people we're Standing. Due to the high load the air was quite Bad and the vehicle had mayor Problems on the Road, only creeping up the Mountains. At least we reached our Destination somehow only slightly delayed.

The journey was fine. The problem we had was the image shown about where pick up was is on the wrong side of the road to where the bus gets you, and there was no one in the shop with 12go to tell us where we needed to be. We asked a few locals and had both answers, it wasn’t until a bus came on the one side that the driver was able to advise it was the other one. Other than that the journey was good.

We accidentally booked the wrong day, but they organized (without buying a new ticket), that we still could catch the bus. Thanks again!
