Bus Standard 2X1, Istanbul Kalesi (Istanbul Kalesi), Oct 9, 2022
Bus was okay, personal was fine, but travel was very slow, unnecessary long stops so in the end an already very long journey was prolonged by another hour. All in all not terrible, but could definitely have been better
Bus Standard 2X1, Kutahyalilar Turizm, Jun 27, 2022
The bus stop like 10 times in different cities over the night. I thought I bought direct bus as the pdf doesn’t say anything about it, so at the end the bus took 2 hours more to arrive to Antalya because that.
