Kusadasi to Istanbul Destination Reviews

The trip was.fine, bus was comfortable, the only issue is the only announcements are in Turkish so you are unsure how long the bus is stopping for. One time I was wondering if I should get off to use the bathroom and the bus left within two minutes. The next time I was unsure whether or not to get off and it was stopped 20 minutes. I asked the bus staff but they just said yes yes and walked away. Other than the language barrier the trip was great. Comfortable, well priced, hot and cold beverages and snacks offered on board. Very good trip as far as buses go.
