Bus Tourist bus, Avro Travels (Avro Travels), Mar 6, 2020
The trip was great, on time, fast, everything was clear. The only thing which was uncomfortable.. We are tall, and there was really not enough space for our legs.

Bus VIP 32, Avro Travels (Avro Travels), Jan 10, 2020
The bus es a fine and ir mas punctual. But the pick up information was terrible. We got an address, coordinates and a photo of the place. They were all different. The address was far from the coordinates, we decided to go for the coordinates because it was where the photo showed. The photo was from the parking lot from food city. We wait there but the bus do not go there. It goes to a bus stop further down the street. We were lucky that we see the bus and go ask. Otherwise we would have lost it.
