Rude lady at travel company. Wouldn’t let me use wifi despite my phone having issues with data. No wifi on either ferry or bus. Bus driver was lovely tho.

I was contacted the night before with the pick-up time for the next morning and the driver was right on time. The instructions for getting the ferry and meeting the second minivan on the other side were very clear. Would definitely recommend.

Went smoothly. It says to start at the Phantrip office, I wish there was a way to go straight to the ferry because it was a detour for me. Also I only saw right before you should be there 1 hour early. Actually, the ferry leaves at the time displayed so just make sure you have enough time to go from the office to the ferry (I think 30 minutes is okay)
