It was a 14 seater plus driver, it was just as well that we had only 11 passengers, as it wouldn’t have been as comfortable if the bus was full.

      The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
