“We were about 3 hours later getting to our destination than expected.”

There were 7 americans on the bus including myself and no one working for the company spoke any english! We were just guessing as of what to do and when to do it. The delay was insane too. 3 hours late is not cool. Requested to sit with my friend who I was traveling with and the workers were very rude about our request.
