We had a car instead of a mini van but that was fine. A bit small for tall people though. Got their early.

A perfect bus ride! Left on time and arrived at the destination an hour earlier than scheduled. Bus was in good condition, the seats were comfortable, and the driver drove responsibly. We stopped for a short toilet break halfway through the journey and got back on the road promptly. I hope our other bus trips go as smooth as this one did. 😅

Excellent staff in Siem Reap... very polite and helpful. Driver drove very fast...the trip took 2.5 hours. He sniffed all the time and didn't wear a mask. But overall very good.

On time, not over crowded and got us there early. No seatbelts and poor toilet facilities.

The trip was generally ok, the driver was friendly and stopped once during the journey at a nice shop/cafe with a clean toilet block. There were a few issues with the bus, air con wasn't very good so it did get quite hot on the bus and there really wasn't very much leg room. It was advertised as a 3 hour journey and although in the conditions it does say journeys can take longer, my trip took 4 hours. From speaking to other travellers they also found the journey to be 4 hours, this is fine if it's the case but please change this on the advertisement. It wasn't the best bus journey I have had in South East Asia but I would do this route again.
