Confortable seats and charger.
They weren’t no silence during a big part of the trip. The bus smelled tobacco so bad. It’s was disgusting. We really believe that the drivers were smoking inside. One of the drivers did not stop screaming in every stop that we made. We understand that he had to warn the passenger that should go down the bus but, let’s respect the other passengers. The truth it’s that tobacco smell was the most unrespectful thing. Wifi only in Istambul. When you cross the border nothing.

The service in the bus.
The travel lasted 2 more hours than planned. It is not easy to find the bus in the Istambul station Boarder passport control.
