Istanbul to Bucharest Destination Reviews

GB
Bus Standard 2X2, Lux Perla, Aug 16, 2021
The ride from Istanbul to Bucharest took 25,5 hours in stead of 11,5 hours. 12 hours were lost at the Bulgarian/EU border, which could have been 10 hours if not the whole crew went for a sleep. Because of all this I missed my train in Bucharest (costs 110 euro), had a no-show in my hotel in Bucharest (costs 40 euro), had to reschedule my whole trip back to Holland etc. The crew did not take any interest in all this, there was no communications and when I complained they just laughed me out. For short, my worst bus trip ever! My advice, do not travel with this lousy company
