It’s my second time to visit Palawan but my first time to travel to El Nido. Prior to my arrival, I had a teleconversation with your team and clarify the rules of arriving just in time and the location of pick up. The description during the booking clearly says PPS airport but when I received the voucher there was additional information that I have to go to San Jose terminal which is I am not familiar hence I need to pay additional Php 150 for airport tricycle.. I have coordinated that I will arrive at exactly 11am as my flight will land at 10:20. And when I reached there 5 minutes before 11am.. there was no van hence I need to wait for more than 30 minutes and we left the terminal at 12noon. And I reached my accomodation 15 minutes before 6pm. I had 7 hours travel and there are more than 2 stops (lunch and taytay). Unfortunately, I have a return booking but I am not going because of what had happened I am afraid I will miss my flight because your timings are unreliable despite the notice that there could be delays of 1 to 2 hours. The driver is good but the operator needs improvement and proper coordination. Thanks

Very reliable booking. Fast and easy. No problems at all. Best way to get to El Nido from PP. Definitely better than taking a van (vomit comet).

Great! Comfortable, spacious, modern bus, clean, great view of the passing scenery. BYO tasty sandwiches or something for the trip before going to the bus depot, wouldn't want to rely on the food at the three truck stops.

The bus was fast, maybe too fast. Racing through tight mountain switchbacks at 50-80+ kmph left us on the verge of vomiting during most of the trip - and personally I never feel motion sickness so that is quite the feat! There is a speed readout above the driver and when it exceeds 75mph it flashes a light and beeps audibly - it was beeping often! Don't expect to sleep on the night bus, you are constantly thrown left to right and right to left making any semblance of sleep impossible. At least one passenger threw up and the gentleman beside me was sweating bullets despite the ac being fairly cold.
