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.

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.

I enjoy train travel and slept in the top bunk just fine. My daughter also slept ok in the bottom bunk. Mark didn't rest because of the noise and movement. Bathroom was shared between two adjacent two berth rooms. It was repulsive. I am used to that but it would not be hard to improve your standards here please.
