Everything went smoothly and quick. We told the driver the adress of our hotel and je took us there so it was really good - save us money:)

Bus was in great condition, very comfortable. My only suggestions would be to have wifi on the bus and help foreigners get off at the right stop by letting them know which is their’s - sometimes it can be difficult to hear the driver shouting which stop it is and with no signage/speaking another language it is tricky.
