    Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. Bus2Alps appreciates your thoughts and concerns, and we regret knowing that some of your experiences with us did not meet your expectations. All of our trips include many costs and benefits to our passengers such as round-trip transportation, accommodation at top-rated hostels or hotels in each destination, walking tours when applicable, breakfast, a Bus2Alps trip leader, and exclusive Bus2Alps discounts and activity options dependent on the selected destination. The cost of our trips directly correlates to the quality of product and service that Bus2Alps produces in comparison to other travel companies. Bus2Alps has long withstanding relationships with the hostels with whom we partner, and we have specific expectations and standards for our rooms. When it is brought to our attention that a room does not meet these standards, our protocol is to diligently follow up with the accommodation and guests affected in order to put them in a quality room immediately. We value your feedback and would be happy to discuss your concerns further if you would like to email us at info@bus2alps.com.
