Mini van insted of a bus

The driver was very pleasant, and the drive was cozy....Expecting a bus, we found mini van driving us to Rijeka. As this was a two hour ride, I planned to work on the bus, but as the mini van was full, so I could not move, let alone open a laptop. I would prefer if I had this information before buying the ticket, as I would choose another option. The service was much lower yet the ticket price was the same. ?

Urednost i dovoljno zraka

Vozači su vrlo lijepo organizirani kod zaprimanja kofera. Lijepo nas obavještavaju gdje ide taj autobus da netko nije krivo ušao u autobus. Vrlo ugodno putovanje....Nema

One of the most relaxing and best bus rides ever

The driver was Amazing and handled some tricky sudden weather like a pro. Our ride went from sunny and hot to complete fog and snow, and he was calm and happy. The bus was huge and clean, and almost felt luxurious. Would do it again any day...
