12:00pm bus

Comfortable bus. Affordable...Stating this was the 12pm bus as we missed the 1130 bus so bought an extra ticket. The bus driver was rude. He yelled at my partner. He also yelled at another passenger. He then shouted at the same passenger when we arrived in Plovdiv. Such an angry person should not work in this industry

Great Tryp

Everything was as I espected...
